Sports – behaviour.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

A game is defined as a form of competitive activity or sport played according to rules and a sport as one played to rules for entertainment. Now, in many “sports” rules are flouted openly, the disgraceful spectacle of on-field fights is frequent and the entertainment is that of a blood sport – banned where non-human animals are concerned.


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.

    Back to the Colosseum … although back? Is there any time in history when rules are obeyed without a dictator and/or a guy with a gun?

    • Ian Gardner says:

      The trouble with the obedience in your second question is that it is simply a suppression of a desire or trait rather than its elimination.

        Which is unfortunately the most people can do in a conformist society. In post-conformism, one has to learn a different kind of ethics, that ethics that seems to be seemslessly connected with Love and Compassion. The learning process is difficult. It is getting worse because only the media seems to recommend themselves as the only truth – although they do not do much better than an ‘enlightened’ dictator like Napoleon 😉

        • Ian Gardner says:

          And the media have their own agenda which does not include education and positive progress; they have a lot to answer for but, in the final analysis, it is the individual who has to act collectively or accept, and learn from, errors of judgement.
