“Once upon a time he was a king. But one day he left his kingdom and got lost in ‘the land of nowhere,’ something no one could have ever imagined. It was a very strange place. The king was really unhappy there; he just couldn’t figure out why. So those of us he left behind went out into the land to rescue him.”
Evan Danielson is a financial executive who invests all of his time and energy in nowhere land, “making all his nowhere plans for nobody.” Fortunately, Holy Spirit does not conform to insanity. The Spirit is a gentle presence calling us home, showing us how to detach from nowhere land, reminding us to invest in love (“it’s all you need!”). Evan hears the call and begins to trust what cannot be seen.
The Spirit guides us through attraction into loving relationships and opportunities to be truly helpful. He will not rip our security blanket away, but will use the images the ego made to help the mind remember that it never left the Kingdom. Symbols given over to Spirit are used as long as they are believed in. Little by little, we learn that we can make it through inner listening, and in the end we see that by choosing what is truly valuable, there is no sacrifice. Here comes the Son!
