Stilling the Surface.

The messenger.

If one stills the surface of a body of water one can see clearly beneath the surface.
For the same reason be Still.

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.

    If one could make life or achieve the state like Water of a Lake. Which in my opinion is the hardest thing to do. Because…..
    Lives we all are living-most of us is either like a river flowing with different speed & momentum in many directions time to time through various places or like an ocean which has ebb and tide every fortnight, ripples every moment and never steady or stand still. To keep calm one’s mind like a still water for ever is- seems next to impossible, as no matter how still water is, when a stone is being thrown into that still water, it creates ripples for a while.

      All you describe is the work of the “mind” and that is why the stilling of the mind is a fundamental in attaining Nirvana – or what can be termed heaven, although not the simplistic heaven often touted as real.
