Translation - English . The Spell of Remembrance
In a dream I swam in the silver moon colored river. The sound of the silver light flowing reminded me of the sound of the music of the happy skies, and at that same moment I found myself at the starry shore. I touched it with my thoughts and became a part of it. With my eyes filled with love, I saw the Love Fairy and Prince of Truth smiling at me.
The Love Fairy said, ‘Welcome. We have been waiting for you to visit us again.’
‘I am happy to be here again, although I am not sure how I got here. I thought you can only come to the Seventh Sky if you look the Love Fairy in the eyes.’
‘Yes, that is right, but only for the first time. Afterwards you can come here in many different ways. It is enough to be reminded of it, and your starry heart will take you back’, said the Love Fairy.
‘The sound of the silver moon river reminded me of the song of the stars, so the memory brought me here.’
The Prince of Truth replied, ‘Yes, of course, it was your memory that took you here. You must write more fairy tales and help the spell of remembrance touch people’s hearts. The weird weirdoes and evil wizards have been using their spells again and when remembrance touches people’s hearts they start to remember all of their spells: fear, anger, worry, hate, jealousy and wizard Saden fills the heart with his sad sorrow which makes the entire glow disappear and the heart no longer wishes to remember.
I whispered quietly, ‘Truth, Love, when I wrote Stardust I asked you if people would remember. You replied, ‘They will feel it.’ What can we do in this case?
The Love Fairy touched me gently and said, ‘We will help you write down fairytales that will remind them of me. The fairytales that will make them remember that no matter what kind of spells surround that I have been here since ever and forever. The moment that the starry heart remembers love, all the bad spells disappear, no matter how long they’ve lasted. When the heart remembers love, it can feel only love.
