The Human Condition.

The messenger.

The human condition, the human state, is merely the means to the end and not the end in itself.

{Remember this as often as you can.}

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.

    I am sorry if I sound like a pest. What do you mean by a ‘human’ condition?

    Let me give you an example of why I ask that:

    Take the example of an ideal welfare society:

    Food, clothing and shelter are provided free to each person at home. A person has to only sit back and achieve Nirvana.

    To what End is this state of Nirvana?

    • Ian Gardner says:

      Nirvana is that state in which the mind does not exist and, with reference to your fourth line, your example is invalid because “sitting back” does not eliminate the mind.

Does this help you?
