The Beginning Of The World-Old Slovenian Folk Tale

The giants spoke amongst themselves and told that at the beginning the earth was a desolate place from one end to the other, nothing but rock all around. Nothing grew, because nothing did not need to. Amongst the people, God himself lived with the spirit and the body and fed them with heavenly manna. But the people were unhappy because they feared God. They could not eat or drink without trembling at his sight, let alone relax and enjoy. God felt pity for the people, so he separated himself from his body and moved to heaven. The body of God turned into a fertile soil and converted desolated Earth in to paradise. Now the people grew their own food and no longer needed heavenly manna to live. Now they began to look forward to their lives and were happy.
