The throw away “civilization”.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

Yesterday there was a news item on the ABC that 30% of the food purchased in this country is thrown away in the home – from cupboard, fridge, cooking, plate etc. What an indictment! What goes on in the minds of so-called advanced people? Almost daily there are news items, accompanied by video, I might add, of horrendous conditions in refugee camps and the like but we, it seems, are too busy care. We deserve what is coming to us.

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.

    Even more is wasted from production till shop. A lot of products don’t fit the right shape and are thrown away by the farmers. During transport and storage more is wasted. In the shops everyday what has not been sold within the right time is also thrown away.
    If we’d reduce this waste, we could feed an earth with 20billion inhabitants.
