After learning the Lovewind’s secret, the Eagle Child was not satisfied
and wanted to fly higher to space. Lovewind told the Eagle Child “To
be able to fly into space, you must go far to the west and into the night
and find my sister the Star Bird.” Being scared of the dark, Eagle Child
was very nervous. But somehow courage was gathered to fly into the
night. The sky roared with lightning and thunder. The Eagle Child
didn’t turn back.
Then all of a sudden, out of the darkness came a brilliant light
It was the brightest star Eagle Child had ever seen. As the light
got closer and closer and brighter and brighter, Eagle Child saw
it was a bird with all colors. The bird had a powerful light shining
from her heart. The bird sang ” I am the Star Bird. Without the
darkness of the night you would not see the stars. The lightning
and thunder have brought you to my home. I have a magic wand
Eagle Child asked, ” What must I learn so I can fly into space and
look down on the whole Earth? Star Bird answered, ” Feel the star in
you heart. We must have the stars in our hearts to reach our dreams.
Now say along with me my secret words:
“I and the Stars are one
I love the Stars
I will take care of the stars.”
The Eagle Child said, ” I am too small, I cannot take care of the stars.”
Star bird said, ” The stars like it when people make wishes for
the good of all. Your earth needs very strong wishes right now.
Bring light to the earth with your good dreams, wishes and the things you do.”
Eagle Child flew to the north, searching for the deepest cave where Crystal Wish lived. After a long cold flight, Eagle Child finally found a deep deep cave fill with crystal. The deeper Eagle Child flew into the cave the more beautiful the crystals became. At the bottom sat Crystal Wish.
She sat perfectly still holding a large crystal in her hands. She invited Eagle Child to look deeply into it. There Eagle Child saw dirty air, polluted water and Earth’s creatures crying. Eagle Child started to cry.
Crystal Wish comforted Eagle Child saying, ” Have you not learned the little people’s sectets to help the Earth and have you not come here to make a wish?
“Yes, trembled Eagle Child.
“Then don’t be discouraged”, said Crystal wish, “You must beleive that you really can do something to help- for every little good thing you do can make a difference.”
Eagle Child felt courageous again and thought, “Maybe I should wish for purple, my wings have all the colors but purple.” But Eagle Child knew it should make a bigger wish, a wish for everyone and said:
“I WISH THE TREES TO BE HEALTHY
THE WATER TO BE CLEAN
THE AIR TO BE FRESH”
AND ALL THE PEOPLE TO LOVE AND TAKE CARE OF THE EARTH.”
“Because you have made such a powerful wish for the good of all the Earth,” exclaimed Crystal Wish, ” I will give you the color purple to complete the full rainbow on your wings.”
