Emotional Self-sufficiency.

The messenger.

Emotional self-sufficiency is that state of non-attachment where one has eliminated emotional needs; where one has emotional equilibrium; where emotional reaction is precluded but not emotional expression.

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.

    Disagree with the coinage ‘Emotional Needs’… there is no such thing…

    An attachment is a focus which is a necessary aspect of the efficiency of life.

    An emotional need, if there is such a thing, is a deception.

      “. . . . there is no such thing . . .” quite so, Parmaatma, quite so! I have stated this often. However, although the non-existence of emotion in the Reality is true its perceived existence in the Illusion is fact and this post of mine is to assist those unaware of the Reality to further their awareness. In regard to your use of the word deception in your last sentence may I suggest the word delusion instead – unless you specifically intended to use that word.

        Thank you.

        Delusion it is. You are very kind.

        For the past few years I am trying my best to recognize what Reality means to me… Sort-of testing my own honesty…

        And I find I have very few beliefs to support myself!

        I am recording it at http://parmaatma.wordpress.com

        There is a great deal I can learn from you…

          It has taken me about 65 years in this life alone, my friend! It takes time (even though time too is not a reality!)
          I suspect it is beneficial to record your progress although I did not – I obviously stored it all and gave birth to it in my book in 1996, with further progress thereafter. However, you will have to read it for yourself. I recommend that you do. It is not a long-winded treatise; mostly it seems to be designed to trigger thinking in the reader. After the book is The ‘Quo Vadis’ File III which takes the reader further.
          Everything I write is available to all at no cost.
          You will succeed, we all do!
