Permanent mental and physical illness.

Symbolising the two "levels" of thinking.

Symbolising the two “levels” of thinking.

Is “mentally disadvantaged” and “physically disadvantaged” the correct or most suitable term for those of us permanently afflicted with mental and/or physical illness? Would not “mentally impedimented” or “physical impedimented” be more correct and acceptable? The reason for this question is that, spiritually, there is no disadvantage: the impediment is, in fact, an advantage – an opportunity, an experience.

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.

    All speak is new speak – the words hide the concepts, and the concepts are used in every brain.
    People will still see what they want to see in their concepts. The label will hardly change that.

    Yet it is the concept of the meaning of each word that forms the basis of language communication and it is the erosion of uniformity that is adversely affecting language communication today 🙂
    This does not happen when the mind is bypassed – as in telepathy!
