Restoring Your True Self Through Spiritual Alchemy
Inspired by Upanishads sacred writings, Hinduism philosophy and spirituality, and the poetry of Zen, Taoism and Eastern Mysticism, Voyager is an inspirational and transformational work on spiritual and personal growth.
When you identify less with your mind and physical form and become more aware of your formless and timeless essence within, you have the potential to discover "There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart." —Chandogya Upanishad.
Deep within you is the real secret to true peace and happiness. Each of the twenty-five chapters presents a spiritual voyage toward your inner, authentic self. Exploring the shores of human-beingness ever more deeply, you may come to realise the “soul is the lighthouse—the light that guides us safely home.”
By simply experiencing life without distraction from the negative mind, you see through personal drama to your truest nature. "It is only the mind which appears as the world and as bondage; there is no world other than the mind. On inquiry, this mind turns out to be nothing more than ripples (thoughts) in the still ocean of Pure Awareness." —The Ribhu Gita.
Pure awareness is an art that requires practice to quiet the surface of your over-active mind and still the rippling waters of your emotional seas. Awakening is recognising you are the timeless spaciousness for all appearances of the world, illuminated by the light that shines within.
You stand at the bow of your ship. The sky is clear, the sea is calm. "...Now voyager, sail thou forth to seek and find." —Walt Whitman
A Love Story for the Soul
This is not a conventional book, nor story for that matter. It is more a suggestion of something, a whimsical glimpse inside the world of soul. It is a tale of a soul’s journey into life. Colourful landscapes, evocative passages and poetic rests makes each page a pleasure to read and reflect. Its mystery is part of the appeal.
The Garden is an elegant spiritual classic that represents wholeness and reminds us of the cosmic model of our relationship to the infinite. Taking up this book is like entering a gateway into a safe refuge of inner reflection. But The Garden is more than a book...it is an invitation to ‘a place where we all may feed and drink; a feast in which everyone rejoices’.
Through meditation and spiritual alchemy, a Dreamer awakens his soul and befriends a beautiful lotus flower and together they travel through a magical landscape to recapture the wonderment of being young and the transcendent beauty of childhood dreams. The Dreamer learns to follow his heart and discovers it takes greater courage to let go of life than to hold on to it.
The Garden is a timeless fable about growing up, getting lost, and finding your way home again.
This unique book is open for interpretation, allowing the reader to bring their own understanding and meaning to the story. Between the words and images lay a hidden place of magical meaning— ‘The innermost and most secret numinosum of the human soul.’
A book for the soul
When we set free the light within us, we release our light back into the world—we awake the World Soul, the Spirit of Gaia, by our own awakening. To heal and transform the world, is to invoke the magical and mysterious power hidden inside us.
Flowers are the personification of purity, beauty and love. They bring healing and give us joy. They make us feel good and help us celebrate meaningful moments in our lives. A flower may bring a smile or invoke a tear. They are transformative and eternal. Flowers grow wildly in the fields and woods, in our gardens, and even in the cracks of a city pavement.
To gaze upon a flower is to behold the wisdom of life. How miraculous, that something so bountiful and free upon the earth, is also the source of spiritual understanding.
Wander at leisure through the garden of these living pages. Gaze through your inner looking glass -- and there you will come to know the language, the wisdom and the miracle of flowers.
"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...I could walk through my garden forever." -- Alfred Tennyson
