Six geese a laying historically refers to the 6 days of creation. One of the amazing miracles of the created world is definitely the goose. However, it’s not so much goose as a food that I’m interested in here as what’s really fascinating about the goose is its behaviour. We can learn a lot from the goose in terms of how it operates. It is the ultimate calling bird as you will know if you live in the flight path of these amazing birds! It wasn’t until I watched a documentary about geese that I realised how amazing they are as social animals. I knew that they flew in a pattern with one at the front but what I didn’t know was that the leader changes regularly to give the one at the front a break without compromising on speed. The honking is seen as a way of communicating and encouraging one another to keep to the plan. Even more amazing, scientists have observed that if one goose becomes ill or injured, two others will drop out of the team in order to sit with them and protect them from predators until they are once again able to fly or simply die. Boy do we have a lot to learn from nature!
Geese are simply a family, working to protect one another and share the load of life. As you make new year’s resolutions, think about the geese and the way they help each other. If you want to walk more, find a walking partner. If you want to give up smoking, find someone who wants to go for it with you or who will be there for support. If you want to change your way of eating or your relationship with food, seek help from those who can make it a whole lot easier for you. Whatever your plans and goals do it together. Remember to share the load like the geese and keep honking for support.
