Video Story for Children: Yaroslava’s Flowers

Take your child on a little online adventure!  My first children’s book, Yaroslava’s Flowers, has now been made into a short video with audio narration!  If you as a parent need a little break and want your child to be occupied in a positive, inspiring, and joyful way, or if you want to join in the fun as well, Yaroslava’s Flowers is now available on my blog website for you to enjoy in all its animated beauty and life!

This video is offered free to everyone, so please watch, give feedback, and most importantly SHARE it with your friends and family and other people or organizations who would like to support a Movement for more Positive and Beautiful Storytelling in our world, where the Spirit and Soul of our Life can be felt and expressed in all its Diversity and Beauty.  The world needs this now more than ever, so you can help in a small way by sharing this story with everyone you know on Facebook, Twitter, other social media, or any other way you wish (you can even tell me about your sharing if you wish!).

If you would like to contribute towards my work and art, then please consider buying a copy of the Yaroslava’s Flowers book, or simply make a donation if you wish.  I live as a full-time volunteer in Auroville, India, as shared in my About the Author page, so any contribution you provide, no matter how small, will be much appreciated!

Thank you for watching the video, reading the book, and participating with me in creating a more Beautiful World of Storytelling!  Watch for more story videos on my Youtube Channel (YogaStories for Children) in the future, including in other languages.  And remember to share your comments, and also any comments your children may have about the story!  

Wishing the World Peace, Light, and Beauty….Your Friend, Noel

A Japanese Garden of Peace

In Auroville, we live to create Beauty.  We aspire for Beauty….We work for Beauty….We seek to see the Beauty in All.  Beauty is not simply something nice to experience or look upon, but is something that has the power to Transform everything, to Heal….it is the Soul-Partner of Love. 

Beauty can be found in so many forms in Life….and in Nature it is found most profoundly, when we stop and observe, listen, Feel it.  The Beauty of Gardens has been explored throughout the history of the world in various ways.  In Japan, the Art of Garden-making has become something that seeks to inspire not only a sense of Beauty and Harmony, but also something Deeper, a Spiritual Connection with the Earth and Nature.

The Labyrinth at Auroville Botanical Gardens

In the Auroville Botanical Gardens, we work to inspire a new Spirit and Consciousness, this sense of Beauty and Harmony, into the world around us, into the material world that we are a part of.  It is an Inner Journey first, but also one that informs our Outer Experience.  Over 15 years many people have worked on the land in this place in South India where people from around the world come to experience Something Else….to build Human Unity and Peace in the world by building a city and experimenting with ourselves, our Spiritual and Material worlds.  We have played with Nature and explored its Spirit, and yet still there is much to awaken….

Japanese Garden of Peace Design


Recently we have aspired to build a Japanese Garden of Peace here in our Botanical Gardens.  Our fellow Japanese Aurovilian Jyoti has designed a wonderful Garden for us and we have found just the right location to put it.  It will take much work, many hands and hearts, to create it….and also, of course, money.  As we Aurovilians who choose to live as full-time volunteers and offer our lives to build a world not based upon profit but upon creating Beauty and Peace, we need the help of others to build everything here…..So we reach out to all of you who may have a Love for Gardens, for Gardens that will educate and Inspire children and adults and people from around the world….we reach out to you for the help to build this Japanese Garden of Peace.  We invite you to visit our Indiegogo Campaign Page at http://igg.me/at/japanesegarden/x/12519715 where you can see videos, pictures, and find out more detailed information about our special project.  We hope you will find a way to support this project in any way you are able.  Please share this with others in your social media world and inspire others to build Peace in new ways.

In a world so full of tension and violence, we truly need more actions and creations that will Inspire Peace and Unity between us all.  Love and Light.

 

Stories for the Child-Soul: A Video Reading of “Yaroslava’s Flowers”

Video

If you have children who love to hear beautiful stories, I invite you and your children to watch my new series of videos, Stories for the Child Soul.  I will be reading stories that I have written which are meant to inspire children and adults with spiritual and Soul-ful  messages. 

In this first video below, I will be reading from my new children’s book Yaroslava’s Flowers,  which you can also order HERE.  It is a magical story about a girl who loves flowers so much that she can hear them speak to her.  When the Flower Spirit appears to her and gives her a bag of magic seeds, she embarks on a Journey of the Spirit to discover the healing and transforming power of flowers. As Yaroslava brings new life to the places and people around her, she also discovers more about herself – through the power of flowers!

Please share it with other children in your life, or friends who have children, and feel free to share your feedback!….Wishing you Peace and Light!

pouring springtime

pouring springtime upon the mind’s eyes
a shadowless vision of a life yet to be
clouds and sun perceived as dancing soul-mates
as rainy days reveal blessings cloaked in wetness
and sunny gifts awaken in the revelations of light
they dance and perceive each others’ roles
moving as if upon some greater living Stage
which itself moves with some other hidden Agenda

rebirth awakens upon a new season’s time
upon a cycle of unimagined lifetimes
bearing witness to an undiscovered evolution
a fruitful revolution of one collective Soul
bound together in multiplying appearances
that never depart their original Womb
but awaken to summers of Infinity
a Blossoming Eternity of Unity’s Gaze
where autumn is but preparation’s phase
and the cries of winter holding Aspiration
as Hope for the embryo of Inspiration
where unending Grace thunders down upon the land
from heavens that shine in springtime’s hands
and Creation finds its true home in Spirit’s earthen doors
where God finds itself peaking through all matter’s eyes
to marvel in radiance at Its own Self-Majesty.

 

The Wake-Up Call

The Call and Cry of the Divine for humanity to Awaken…..

“The world is preparing for a big change. Will you help?”

( The Mother, 1.1.1970.)

*****

“O Force-compelled, Fate-driven earth-born race,
O petty adventurers in an infinite world
And prisoners of a dwarf humanity,
How long will you tread the circling tracks of mind
Around your little self and petty things?
But not for a changeless littleness were you meant,
Not for vain repetition were you built;
Out of the Immortal’s substance you were made;
Your actions can be swift revealing steps,
Your life a changeful mould for growing gods.
A Seer, a strong Creator, is within,
The immaculate Grandeur broods upon your days,
Almighty powers are shut in Nature’s cells.
A greater destiny waits you in your front:
This transient earthly being if he wills
Can fit his acts to a transcendent scheme.
He who now stares at the world with ignorant eyes
Hardly from the Inconscient’s night aroused,
