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

“Check this book out, because de Foncesca is going to be around for a while... The intelligent design behind the book’s composition is a display of narrative talent, and a deeper understanding of how these attributes can affect a story.”
-Vincenzo Bilof, Necropolis Now, Zombie Ascension
“The Cheat Code For God Mode is what Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One SHOULD have been… [and] what The Matrix COULD have been… It’s a lot like Neil deGrasse Tyson is sitting on the couch playing video games with you while you’re both stoned. It’s through this clever writing that the story really comes to life.”
