Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner
Last Friday I signed the approvals for Giorgie’s Christmas Dinner to be uploaded to the printing platform at Ingram Spark, the print on demand printing service through which all the Spiritual Heritage Publishing is done. It was a very exciting day as the book is about two months ahead of schedule!
The story continues
As Giorgie imagined herself jumping up and down on her diamond, she could see how the connections on the spider’s web linked everyone together. She was so surprised to see them all bouncing up and down with her that she got the giggles.
“That’s so cool. Can I do it again?” Giorgie asked.
Astara explained,” You’re doing that all the time, as we’re all connected through the energy waves which surround us, only they are invisible and you can’t see them.”
Astara said, “In the distant past all humans and creatures were aware of this connection as there were few of them, with plenty of food for everyone. However, when the great ice age came upon the earth, humans were in danger of dying from hunger.
The great ice age changed the world
The creatures were worried about the humans so the antelope came to speak for all of them. The Antelope said, “Take our thick warm coats to keep warm, and use the flesh of our body to give you warmth and energy.”
The humans were very grateful and they promised to bless the soul of the animal whose life they had to take.
When the ice age finally ended, the humans called the creatures to them. They said, ” You gave to us in our time of need. Now the earth is warm again, we want to repay your kindness. We will take care of you when the summers are dry and long, and the winters cold and harsh.
The birds and animals who chose to accept the help of the humans became very quiet and as time went by, became very dependant on humans for all their needs.
Giorgie said to Astara, “What about Mr. Rooster, does he know this?”
“Yes. Astara replied, “remember how I said every bird and animal will eventually give its life so another can live? Remember the rabbit you saw taken by the eagle last year; and how your Daddy took you to the eagle’s nest, showing you the mother eagle needed to take the rabbit to feed her babies?”
Giorgie was so relieved, she promised she would always bless the soul of any animal whose life they had to take.
Astara said, “Look, Mr Rooster is over in the far paddock now. It is safe for you to get down.”
Giorgie scrambled down from the branch and enjoyed playing with the hens and chickens without the worry of Mr. Rooster chasing her.
Her next stop was over to the big barn to feed and groom Taffy her pony. She had been on her way there when she was waylaid by Mr. Rooster. It was the favourite time of the day for Giorgie as she fed and groomed her best friend.
I acknowledge with gratitude the RADF grant from Arts Queensland and the North Burnett Regional Council which made the publication in this time, possible.
