Pleasure and Rewards.

The messenger.

Far superior to the pleasures and rewards of the illusion that is Earthly life are the pleasure and rewards of the Reality.

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 am just catching up on all your posts. I am sorry I discovered your site so late.

    But that won’t stop me from being the pest that I am…

    Thank you.


    PS: I am right handed. And mathematical. In math, regardless of the language, everything is done from right to left.

      As you see I have returned to do justice to your inquiring and active mind (moul). A friend of mine once told me that she had spent 3 hours reading all the TQVFIII posts and I wondered how much she had absorbed! However, so much depends on the individual. Some read the entirety quickly and then return to read the individual items in depth.

    An objective reality defies indifference. And a subjective world denies pleasures and rewards. Ethics merely apply the virtues of life.

    There is no such thing as a gain. What is death for a prey is just one meal for a hunter.

      I cannot devote more time here but I am glad you are doing what you are doing.
      More later,
      P.S. I could not help but smile just now when I realised, belatedly, that you were commenting on the posts listed on the right hand side. Ah, well, one lives and learns!!! 🙂 🙂

Does this help you?
