THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY GARDENTHE MOST EXTRAORDINARY GARDEN
You are sitting in the middle of a magnificent, lush, green garden. This garden is
filled with the most spectacular flowers you have ever seen. The environment is
supremely tranquil and silent. Savor the sensual delights of this garden and feel as
if you have all the time in the world to enjoy this natural oasis. As you look around
you see that in the center of this magical garden stands a towering, red lighthouse,
six stories high. Suddenly, the silence of the garden is disturbed by a loud creaking
as the door at the base of the lighthouse opens. Out stumbles a nine-foot-tall, nine-
hundred-pound Japanese sumo wrestler who is fully naked , coverimg his
private parts with a pink cable. casually wanders into the center of the garden. As
this sumo wrestler starts to move around the garden, he finds a shiny gold
stopwatch which someone had left behind many years earlier. He slips it on, and
falls to the ground with an enormous thud. The sumo wrestler is rendered
unconscious and lies there, silent and still. Just when you think he has taken his last
breath, the wrestler awakens, perhaps stirred by the fragrance of some fresh
yellow roses blooming nearby. Energized, the wrestler jumps swiftly to his feet
and intuitively looks to his left. He is startled at what he sees. Through the bushes
at the very edge of the garden he observes a long winding path covered by
millions of sparkling diamonds. Something seems to instruct the wrestler to take
the path, and to his credit, he does. This path leads him down the road of
everlasting joy and eternal bliss.
