Planet Here & Planet There

There is a planet called “Here” that started with two creatures- we shall call them Will and Jada. The King of Planet Here lives above them behind an iron shield. He cannot be seen or heard- but Jada continually tells Will she knows the King exists- because she tells him- she can “feel the King.”

The King is quite generous and allows food to grow for the budding young couple- he sends rain that quenches their thirst and a warm light that keeps them from getting too chilled.
One day Jada and Will fight and can’t get along. The fighting escalates and they both stop talking. The dark energy forces the rain to stop coming down- they create such a powerful energy that even the sky gets grey and the sun hides because of their harsh words and negative thoughts. After many dark sad years Jada leaves to a summer planet called “There” and Will is sad and alone- plagued with regret. He has no idea where Jada has gone or where she lives now. One day Will falls asleep in a very dark sleep. He is heavy and when he wakes up he is in a new place too. He thinks this new place is no longer the planet he was brought to by the King, but he is not sure.
Finally he sees Jada and is reunited- and realize they are no longer Here but are There. They are on the other side of the iron curtain and this time they get to meet the King.
They ask the King why he hid for so many years- why they had to leave the first planet and come to this planet that has no sun and lots of clouds.
The king answers-

Your life was meant to be for eachother but you didn’t make it about one another. I gave you one another to rely on- but you forgot to see what we could accomplish together- you forgot that I existed with you. I made sure that Jada felt me – but you both never responded to my touch. You saw the iron curtain- yet you failed to remember I was behind it the whole time. You called eachother names and refused to realize the only thing required for the sun to keep shining, for the rain to keep dropping, for the air to continue was for you to hold and love eachother. But now you are here- which is really There and I hope your kids –  mike and Janet who I left at “Here”will get it right so I don’t have to wait patiently behind this iron curtain to tell them they don’t need this summer home anymore to meet me.
