The messenger.

Offence belongs to its creator and not to the target so be non-attached to offence aimed at you in the realisation that it is not yours.


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.

    If there is no attachment there is no letting go!
    🙂 . . . . but I suspect you know that 🙂

    That is also recorded in the biographies of Buddha!

    Interesting! Everytime I read that thought it makes me think about something else!

    If I call the creator ‘God’ and if I take offense at what he has done to me… do you think I should let go?

    • Reader says:

      Can I give you a silly example for the last line?

      A teenager is upset with her parents because they are poorer than her friend’s parents. She blames God for giving her such poor parents who cannot even keep her happy.

      The parents ignore her cribbing, yet try their best to provide her whatever they can.

      Should the parents ‘let go’ altogether and live their own karma rather than take offense and try to make their child happier?

    • Ian Gardner says:

      The “creator” or “God” does not do anything to anyone WE create, WE do!

Does this help you?
