Life’s Events.

The messenger.

In each life there are things that will happen, things that will not happen and things that are optional.

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.

  3. Parmaatma says:

    The ‘Optional’ one is part of the fun.

    Like, I usually say,

    I know what I know. I know what I want to know. And I don’t want to know what I don’t know.

    The last one is ‘Optional’… the actual fun… but I am not keen on it…

      Be very careful! What appears to be fun can be damaging to one’s self or others.
      Fun can also be just empty self-indulgence. However, it is only because you are not aware of what your true state of being is, being only aware of your Earthly life, that you choose “fun”. Interestingly, Gore Vidal, the well known American writer, said something like this a few years ago, ‘It is as if the world is a large balloon into which someone has to continually pump “fun” for people to be happy!’
      “Fun” as it is seen in recent times is a vacuous attempt to escape the inescapable except by full enlightenment. There is the account of the moul in the “borderland”* who, having been obsessed with money in its previous life, spent its entire “time” creating money** which was of no use there. Ultimately the moul thus learns the emptiness of the obsession.
      The need for “fun” is an attachment which will have to be released at some stage of spiritual development and supplanted by the state of blisstacy.
      * search for the word in TMIW.
      ** In the borderland creating anything is simple.
