sweet nirvana

there are very few times in one's life when all the elements come together to create a state of total peace, a state in which the highest and pure love can be felt and offered, a moment of being that slices through all conditional issues and can transcend any pain. many spend their lives searching for this calm. as i write this i feel a sense of sorrow for those of you who have not yet been given the chance to be surrounded by this kind of peace and love. it is not easy to attain, and i too had to travel far and wide in search of it. as with most aspects in life, this kind of abundance shows itself to you when you least expect it and often it a form that you may never have imagined. my awakening came to me in a small plastic wrap, and it wasn't until i read the inscription that i truely knew of its power and could recognise the force of 'okashi'. i guess deep down i always knew it to be the truth, but it took seiyo kyujitsu, to open my eyes and tell me.

for those of you in search of the power and the love, all you need is to get your hands on a hakata seiyo-wagashi.

as the package reads "the spirit of okashi. it is what gives a peaceful and pleasent mind to the human race. all the time man seeks romance in the okashi. we have been working hard and carefully, and work on. to weave the romance and fancy into each okashi. this, at last we have made up 'the hakata seiyo-wagashi' if you taste the feeling and the spirit of the okashi which value true tradition and living in the times, there is no pleasure better than it"

what exactly is okashi??

its a small snack...who would have thought something so small could bring so much greatness?

in another one of those glorious twists...i found not one but two okashis placed upon my desk.  the second, although much more scrumptious than the first, did not claim to offer the same all encompassing pleasure, the package merely reading " please share and enjoy the sweet taste with you jolly good time".
