Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

Because of the increasing unreliability of the information given us via the media, due to a large part to the influences imposed on it, combined with the vast amount of uncontrolled information, of varying degrees of veracity, available at the click of a button, the need for discernment ranks high. Unfortunately, many people are either unable to be discerning or are disinterested whilst a large segment of the young in the developed world has switched off completely.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    I have switched off nearly completely since I’m back from India. I realized that I had not lost anything by not following the news on the internet for 2 weeks. It seems I used to read the news as a kind of pass time activity. Most ‘news’ is not connected to me. News that is connected will come this way any how.
    Thank you for your interesting posts!

      People have many attachments, bert – most often without noticing them but the process of enlightenment brings them to their attention and they have then to make a choice.
