Inspired by the Upanishads ancient poems that teach pure awareness, this unique book speaks directly to the heart and soul of every reader, revealing a beautiful vision of a perfect world. A love story that transcends all time and space and the illusion of separation, told in simple lyrical style with dazzling illustrations.
This gentle tale weaves together a world of unity where opposites play together in a deep absorption of what is real and what is illusory. Told in four parts: The First Awakening, The Sleeping, The Dreaming and The Reawakening, The Garden mirrors the Upanishads Three States and One Reality: Waking to an outside world, Dreaming in the mind, Dissolving in deep sleep and Awakening to pure awareness.
The condensed narrative contains deeper meanings so designed that each reader needs to think about the words through a sustained process of inner reflection. Each reader will discover many different levels of meaning and this will lead to their own individual "awakening" in The Garden.
The Garden is a parable about the origin of life that gently opens the heart, allowing the reader to experience oneness: a self-realization where feelings, thoughts and perceptions are seen as the ever-changing appearances of awareness itself. Enlightenment is simply the art of being. The art of love. An openness, where everything and nothing are one. The cup and water, though not joined together, they are one. We are all connected to the origin of life. The boundless all. The clear state of being awake. The invisible source of being. Inside us there is peace and happiness. It is our home.
So journey into life, journey into the fullness and perfect presence of oneness and see the wonderful miracle that you already are.
"It is the beautiful illustrations of sacred geometry woven into Celtic patterns and nature's gifts that makes this little book really special. The reader is taken through a love story of the soul and I could not help but think of that other great poem of love by Khalil Gibran, The Garden of The Prophet, as I read through these pages. This is a book to languish over in the quiet of your mind and can be used as an excellent tool for inspiration, illumination and opening of the heart." -- Elizabeth Peru, Insight Publishing

What Readers Are Saying:
“From art history class, to the dance floor, to a sexual awakening--following Giselle through the ivy corridors of a fantastic freshman experience is fun , fun, fun! For anyone who has ever postponed pleasure this is a satisfying and titillating read.”
“As guilty pleasures go, The Freshman is top of the list. Gauvin keeps it light, but with a strong female lead and ongoing little mysteries teased out slowly. Everything about the book is sensuous and well-paced. Great read.”
“LOVED this! Just a deliciously fun read. It's smart, sexy and Elle is a female romantic heroine I DON'T want to slap. The scenes were seriously hot--ready for book 2.”
“It's about time for an empowered, intelligent, bold heroine in a genre where there are far too few! The main character, Giselle, doesn't need to be saved by any man. I'm hooked on her - she's so easy to relate to - and can't wait for more of this series! I loved the writing. It's clever, hot, fast and intriguing. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a sexy, smart, fun book that will keep you up late reading!”

by Initially NO (Goodreads Author)
Initially NO wrote this book while trying to escape from grieving. There’s not a lot of evidence of this though. The symbolic white rabbit, is most likely a reflection from Lewis Carroll, and the time running out for the relative dying, in real life, is probably the only thing that shows the author’s state of mind. The use of old gory is a fair bit deeper than pantomime, but boarders on the silliness of that at times. There are some serious equations of understanding human relationship dynamics, feeling and what is and isn’t acceptable.
The novella could easily be turn into a feature film animation. The Royal Nag character would be a hit.
