So, in case you encounter the wilds in any way, by chance, and if they threaten you, you just tell them, “Calm, calm down! I’m harmless! I’m good. I’m good.” “I’m good!” And they will understand. […] But don’t just go in the wild and meet the wilds or anything. If you want to feed them, be distant until they know you, until you’re sure. But you’re never sure, OK? It depends on your energy. Sometimes if you just have a little aggressiveness in your head, he knows it.
They’re beautiful beings! Very, very affectionate. Like, whenever I feed the swan-people, sometimes I don’t recognize at a glance which one is which. I say, “Are you Sai Sai?” He says, “Mmm… mmm…” Yeah! That means “Yes!” And when he sees me put the bread down, he says, “Ah! Thank You!” Yeah, wagging tail, wagging like a dog(-person). Yes! And the duck(-people) even. Before, I went with a golf car, and when I turned around, it made beep, beep, beep sound – they knew it already. The whole family came waiting at the shore, wagging tails and... Quack, quack, quack, quack! Just like family members. And the swan(-person) even tried to protect me, like a dog(-person)! But you’ll know all that later, in the book. (Yes.) He protects my feelings.
OK, I might as well tell you. Just one part. One time, I camped next to where they stayed on the island, small island – I camped on it. And in the morning, one day I heard a very loud noise from the bird(-people) – the coot(-people) and crested grebe or whatever. I went out and had a look, and I saw a duck mother – because she was very protective of her child, she was almost drowning a coot(-person). She bit him and harassed her so much. Oh, I was appalled. I said, “My God, I can’t believe this! I can’t believe what you’re doing!” “You see that?” I told the swan(-people). The swan(-people) were next to me. They were on the island with me nearby, next to my tent. “Did you see that?” Oh, my God, I couldn’t believe it! I was so hurt. It was so painful for me to see that. I said, “My God, she almost killed her! I think she’s killing her!” But nobody (was) there. I’m just telling the swan(-people).
And you know Sai, the male swan(-person)? He left his nest; he was just preening himself, and when he heard me, he looked at me and he left the nest, and he went all the way down, chased the duck(-person) away. (Wow!) And then he just came back. He didn’t bite him or anything, just chased that duck(-person) away. (Wow!) And then he came back to me, and he looked at me. Yeah! (Wow!) I said, “Thank you. But I still feel very hurt. I didn’t believe you guys do this to each other!” I was talking like that. I was screaming, I said, “They hurt my feelings. They hurt that coot(-person), it’s like it hurts me!” I was talking to the swan(-person), and he understood it. He left his nest, came to chase (away), but gently. Shoo, shoo, shoo her out, away out of my sight. And then he returned to his nest with his kids, his children. And he looked at me: “I did it! I scolded her!” Something like that. You don’t need to be a psychic to understand.
Many times, they just make me feel so good, so good. I mean I was very upset, very sad, and he knew that. And he just made me feel, “I understand. I’ll do something about it.” He did it. My God, you must be there to know, because to tell you in words is not really anything that… That’s the best I can do. But you must be there to know, to feel it, to feel what I felt, and to know the communication between us. He really did something for me. And sometimes he chases the duck(-people) away, or he chases... Mostly he doesn’t chase the duck-, just the geese(-people). The geese(-people) are as big as them, they have the same food and the same impressive presence, so he doesn’t like it. Especially when he has babies, very aggressive. Don’t ever try to do anything or go near when they have babies. I don’t guarantee. Very aggressive! But they just know me, so they let me go, let me camp next to them, just like this… in the middle of the night! Because I thought they were going to hatch in the morning, so I had to take the photo when they came out. So I dragged the tent in the middle of the night, went next to her nest and said, “I’m going to camp tonight, OK?” And that’s it! They said, “Hmm-mm!” Then, I camped. And they didn’t do anything!
But one time I took a stick, because I saw the mother swan had a stick from the nest sticking next to her neck, and I used the stick to want to remove that stick out. And she called him, she called him back, and he flew back from far away, flew back right away! And he came to me: “Hah! What do You do? What are You doing? What are You doing?” I said, “No! No! I’m good. I’m good. I’m good. You know I’m good for you. I am good. I just tried to help.” And he calmed down right away. When he heard me say “I just wanted to help,” he put his… all calmed down. You know, not… Because when he was angry, he made himself four-five times bigger, and he stretched his neck to the sky and came at me. I threw the stick away, I said, “No, I just wanted to help.” And he calmed down right away, and he went back to the water. He didn’t even stand there to watch me go. No, he went back to the water. All things calmed, slimmed back his body immediately! And he understood everything I said, in English! Believe it or not? Of course, we don’t always need to use language. But we humans use human language, so I forgot. I said, “I’m good! I’m good! No, you know I’m good to you, right? I just wanted to help!” And when he heard the word “help,” he immediately put his things down and just went to the water, minding his own business, went far away. Didn’t even stay near to make sure or anything. No, no!
And normally, if I go with the attendant, with a male attendant, oh, he comes around the boat, and he just tries to stop the boat. He just runs in front of the boat back and forth, back and forth. And if you don’t listen, he will come, fly up to the boat and want to attack you, because of the eggs. And then I thought, “Oh, it’s too much trouble to go with the boat,” because he might fly on top of the boat anytime. He’s on top of us, he has more advantage. He did not attack quite yet, but he’s very aggressive, and it scares you. So I thought I’d build a bridge across, a kind of very primitive bridge, but I can go on it. Just put some cables, then put some fence on it and tie it, that’s it. And then I can walk on the fence, on top of the water, and go to the island. But before that, he went around like, “What are you doing? What are you doing? Why you come so near?” and all that. I said, “No, no, I just want to help you, OK? Listen, I’m just going to build a bridge, a very small bridge, no hindrance to you running around the lake. I’m just wanting to help in case your children need help. Because I cannot go by boat to feed your partner, and your children when they’re born. I want to help you.” So, he just doesn’t do anything. He immediately lets you, and he’s relaxed. He runs around, but he doesn’t puff himself up, or he doesn’t threaten you. He understands everything.
So, in case you encounter the wilds in any way, by chance, and if they threaten you, you just tell them, “Calm, calm down! I’m harmless! I’m good. I’m good.” “I’m good!” And they will understand. Explain to them why you are there and what you’re doing. They understand everything. But be quick. Talk fast. Talk fast, talk fast. But don’t just go in the wild and meet the wilds or anything. If you want to feed them, be distant until they know you, until you’re sure. But you’re never sure, OK? It depends on your energy. Sometimes if you just have a little aggressiveness in your head, he knows it.
Because one time, I was so mad at him because he shooed all the geese(-people) away. When I wanted to feed them, he shooed them. He owns the whole lake! His name’s written all over it. So I said, “Sai, you are so bad! You’re so bad, so bad! I really don’t like your manner. You have to change it.” But he didn’t listen. And the next time, I scolded him again, but he felt very sorry. He said, “Sorry,” and hung his head. Yeah, he did. I said, “Then, just don’t do it!” And he said, “OK.”
Next day, he did the same again. So, I was angry. I’m too lazy to talk to him. I said, “I’m too lazy to talk to you. I don’t want to talk to you. I don’t want to see you. Go away! Go away! Eat and go!” And then I said to my attendant, I said, “Oh, you know what? I want to catch this guy! So that others can come and eat easily.” Because he looks like he just monopolizes the whole lake, and I can’t even feed the other geese(-people). Because he has eggs, so he watches the whole lake. Day and night, he doesn’t sleep a wink, I’m telling you. (Wow!) Yes. Only after the kids were born and they grew up a little bit, one time I caught him sleeping. You know how I know it? He snored! Like everybody else. (Really?) Yeah! So anyway, what did I say?
Oh, I was saying to my attendant only, “Wow, I want to catch this guy, and then we can feed every other creature that comes along.” I just said it to my attendant, but I didn’t do anything. Next day, he saw me, “Hrrr…!” He came with… five times bigger than his body, came to me, “Hrrr!” Oh, and he snatched the bread bag from my hand before I even had a chance to open it. I said, “OK, eat it!” I walked away, and his partner, feeling very ashamed, she took all the children and went away from him. Just felt bad for me, sorry, and took all the kids away. Didn’t fight with him but showed him that she disapproves.
And you don’t know... You don’t know how much she talks to me, this swan(-person), the girl. The boy understands all languages, the girl also. But the inside communication… She can see, wow, thousands of years ahead and behind. (Wow.) She tells me who’s good, who’s not good. Whoever comes near, who’s not good. She tells me a lot of things. OK, anyway, go eat! See you later.
