Story by Chubby Cheeks — September 2020
It was a fair summer day
when Chubby Cheeks spoke
with the Elves of Seven Oaks.
During the timely days
when the moon was in Aquarius,
three little ones appeared in the clearing
beneath the great oak tree.
Upon sight, Chubby Cheeks
climbed down from his place
in the tree and welcomed them
into his forest home.
“It is not often we see you,” said Chubby,
“As your ability to move in and out of
manifestation is rather magical.”
Being elves, they did not waste a moment
explaining their abilities but said:
“For too long the human race
has not understood who we are
and why we are here. Or even what we do.
So, the reason we have come at this time
is to teach you a few things.”
So Chubby Cheeks invited them
to sit with him around the big mushroom
and he would listen for he was always open
to the world of the Elementals.
And the first one said (for they looked
like triplets), “Your human friends
have not understood
the meaning and purpose of joy.”
And Elf number 2 said, “Joy must come
from the heart. Your lightness of spirit is
needed by others.”
Elf number 3 sat quietly among the group (which is
a difficult thing to do for an elf), but he also
had a message and wanted to speak:
“We know that joy is our source of elf
power. Our chief taught us long ago
that joy is a special wisdom.
“You do not see us often, Chubby Cheeks,
because we cannot mix with doom
“We are willing to offer joy to you and
to your woodland friends, to humans, to the vegetable
kingdom and to all, but we cannot be present
amongst despondency and depression.
“There are opportunities for joy all around
and from within you.
But many do not notice because they are not
looking in the most obvious place —the heart.”
And together they all three said:
“The heart opens the door to unseen worlds.”
And Chubby Cheeks listened to the wisdom of
the Elf kingdom. He realised more than ever
that all life is One: one family with diverse
qualities and abilities.
“We do not want to enter your evolution,
we just want to be acknowledged
and accepted as helpers.
And to do so, we occasionally cross the
threshold between dimensions.
Together we can create a beautiful world.
“Why would you not want to know us better?
“We give fragrance to the flowers,
color to all things,
brilliance to earth crystals
and taste to your food.
“We swim the waters, fly the skies
and warm your fires.
We are deep in the rich earth.
We are everywhere.
“We play with children
before the veil comes down,
but we are forgotten by most adults.
So, all we ask is that you
believe we exist,
and you will see that we do.”
