Love and Relationship.

The messenger.

The emotion generated by love i.e. the emotion of love, depends for its existence on there being a relationship of one kind or another. However, a relationship is not dependent on love.
By understanding relationship itself one is aware that, whereas the emotion of love requires relationship, relationship does not require either love or emotion because love and emotion are merely aberrations, or “overlays”, of relationship.
Hence, without love and emotion, relationship acquires its true value – that of being only the foundation, the basis, on which either emotion or love stand either alone or combined.
NB. The same applies for any other emotion.

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. February 2020. My search - my journey, is now complete.

      I had a look Michelle and my hope is that it helps people.
      Meanwhile, to better equip you to understand what love is I recommend you search this blog (better still The Milk Is White as well as this blog) for “love”.
      All the best,

    Well I don’t typically comment on weblogs but I stumbled on yours whilst I was doing some work researching in Bing today so i figured I would leave a simple comment. Needless to say I have gotten a little sidetracked after sticking around to look over a number of your posts. You’ve got some very nice insights here, so I will add you to my Google Reader for the future. Cheers!
