“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Lonely zoo orca in Florida gets 'endangered' protection

Miami (AFP) - Lolita, a captive orca that has spent more than four decades in an aquarium tank, will be granted the same endangered species protection as her wild relatives, US officials said Wednesday.

Advocates hope the ruling will lead to her release from the Miami Seaquarium, where she has lived for the past 35 years, but the matter of Lolita's care remains at the center of an impassioned legal dispute.

She was captured as a juvenile from the waters off the western US state of Washington in 1970, along with six other calves that were sent to marine parks around the country.

The now 7,000-pound (3,200 kilogram) Lolita is the only one of that group still alive. She is believed to be the oldest captive orca in the United States.

Her wild relatives, known as the Southern Resident killer whales, were given endangered species protection by the US government a decade ago.

There are only 78 individuals left in the Pacific Ocean off the northwestern United States and Canada, said Will Stelle, regional administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) Fisheries West Coast region.

Their protected status, from 2005, did not however apply to all orcas in US waters or those in captivity.

Animal rights groups petitioned NOAA to revise the endangered listing and to remove the exclusion of captive whales from the description.

"We find that Lolita's captive status, in and of itself, does not preclude her listing under the ESA (Endangered Species Act)," NOAA said.

"Accordingly, we are removing the exclusion for captive whales in the regulatory language describing the Southern Resident killer whale DPS (distinct population segment)."

Aquarium life

The 20-foot (six-meter) orca lives alone in a 35-foot wide and 20-foot deep tank at the Seaquarium.

Female orcas typically live for about 50 years, but can live as long as 100 years, according to NOAA.

The decision does not force any change to her captivity, or the conditions in which she is held, which is overseen by a division of the US Department of Agriculture.

"It is not a decision to free Lolita. It is not a decision that she should be freed," Stelle told reporters.

The NOAA rule takes effect in 90 days. Beyond that, making decisions regarding what is best for her "is a very complicated task" that NOAA has not considered and may not become involved with unless formally asked, he added.

Animal rights advocates are pressing a lawsuit to gain her release.

"Today's proposed rule makes the possibility of Lolita's retirement to a seaside sanctuary tangible," said the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

"Were she to be released, she would be able to live her life with dignity, in an environment that more closely resembles her natural environment. There's even a possibility she could be reunited with her family!"

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it will continue to push for Lolita to be retired from performing and transferred to a seaside sanctuary in her home waters off Washington's San Juan Islands, or even back to her own family pod if possible, since it is believed that her 86-year-old mother is still alive.

"This orca has been trapped for decades in the tiniest orca tank in North America and, for the past 10 years, deprived of the protection from harm and harassment offered by the Endangered Species Act," said general counsel to PETA Jeffrey Kerr.

But Stelle said her future and the matter of her survival -- as well as protection of the remaining orcas in the wild -- is not as simple as opening the gates and letting her go free.

"As for Lolita, imagine if you had been in captivity, in a tightly managed environment, fed by humans for the last 40-45 years. Are you ready to be released out into the wild and fend for yourself? And is that going to be successful? Or is that going to be highly unsuccessful?

"Jumping to any particular conclusions about the release -- or not releasing Lolita -- at this stage is very, very premature."
