The solitary journey.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

In the final analysis our spiritual journey is solitary – those we meet on the way are pilgrims like us but we encounter them for the specific experience and the opportunity to learn from what the encounter presents.


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.

    … but sometimes it is hard to say goodbye …

      That is because the mind (moul) creates attachment – not the same as caring. 🙂

        I don’t know whether the emotional system is included in mind or body or both. But it certainly makes us human.

        • Ian Gardner says:

          Bert, emotion is a creation of the mind and since the mind is non-existent so is it. This is a tough one to comprehend, I know. Just tuck it away at the back of your mind because, at some time, the piece of the jigsaw will fall into place as do all!
