The Illusion in Context.

When one focuses totally on one’s true identity, the “I am”, worldly life is but a faint and shallow mirage on the distant horizon. In troubled times this awakens one to the Reality and soothes the troubled mind.

The messenger.

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 regular periods 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.

    Absolutely. No two ways about that.

    This is what I wrote on my blog on 8 March 2010:

    Philosophy does not justify the existence of the universe or the life therein.

    It is merely the defining relationship of the individual and the knowable reality that life encounters.

    There is no rule that a person’s philosophy has to be all-inclusive or consider aspects that are not relevant to the person’s life.

    To say, “I am.”, one does not require something else to be or not to be. “I am.” is a complete expression by itself.

    The value of a person’s life is an absolute that is defined by the person’s choice – to establish a philosophy based on a studied knowledge of reality or an imaginary speculative hypothesis.

    The choice decides if one subjects life to arbitrary whims and force or to a state of rational consciousness.
