In the Land of the Birds is an enchanting tale about the growth of the soul. It involves “leaving the nest,” overcoming fear, discovering courage, and plumbing the mysteries and joys of love. In the story, we meet a young bird named Hebril who, through a series of experiences, gains confidence, courage, and strength of spirit and wings. Eventually, he encounters Kerah, a young female bird, and they bond, joining as one in heart. Together, with the help of the oldest bird in the mountain –ringed valley, the Wisest of All, they discover the secret of life. This secret reveals to them the marvelous ways in which love and the Creator are intertwined. And they also discover a special secret about Hebril’s family. Then they go on to new and breathtaking horizons of life achievement, always abiding by the Wisest of All’s guidance: “You’ve got to follow the path our Creator has carved in your soul. By following the path, you will be able to win the challenges of life.”
