Civilizations.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

Learning about the Australian aborigine some 20,000 years ago I am struck by their profound awareness and culture and the fact that, by comparison, the awareness and culture of modern mankind in the “first world” is puny and shallow. The perceived achievements of the latter pale into insignificance in a comparison.

The spiritual test of modern mankind was probably to continue to live with this awareness and culture, at no cost to the Earth, with a massively increased population.

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.

  1. Nice post; as a Native American myself, I can agree that the wisdom of the ancient peoples was something that we have barely touched upon. It is a problem of a hermeneutic limitation of the current society that prevents reaching beyond the veil. If it is a dream that leads us toward tomorrow, then we must become lucid and remember that the wisdom of the ancients flows through our DNA, as we all share a common structure, given to us by mother earth. I wish you the best.

    In my writings one finds references to the curtain (your ‘veil’) being the mind and going on to explain what the mind is quite simple really!
    Your wishes are reciprocated in equal measure 🙂
