Imagine for a moment a garden. Imagine that this garden is unlike any garden you have ever seen on this earth. Imagine this is a garden full of flowers and trees, of brilliant sights and sounds, of sparkling diamond water and clear emerald forests. Imagine a garden characterized by unbelievable fertility and bounty. Imagine that in this garden, life flourishes in peace, love, and joy. In this garden there is nothing but contentment, bliss, and happiness. Call this garden The Garden of Eden or Shambhala or Heaven if you like for indeed it was like all these places and more. Call it utopia and imagine it a place of pure light. Then, when you have imagined all these things, put them together and you will know what The Garden was like.
