Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

In westernised countries the eagerness to stay alive for as many years as possible is causing ever increasing huge costs to governments in medical care, pharmaceuticals, housing and other ancillary needs of the elderly. In these same countries the predominant religion is Christianity where the belief is that the after life is heavenly and that all sins are forgiven yet Christians are in no hurry to go there; they are, apparently, mortally afraid to do so. All this is irreconcilable.

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.

    Jan, there is a “disconnect” between life and professed beliefs which are very shallow at best.
