The Journey Up The Mountain

The Journey Up The Mountain consists of my first two writings, the book “The Milk Is White” and “The ‘Quo Vadis?’ File III” which are presented in the bar above in the correct reading order (with only a link provided for the book).

Subsequent writings are Consider This and Challenging Questions? – both WP blogs the links to which are provided below.

This blog is the complete list of posts from The ‘Quo Vadis?’ File III.
IMPORTANT: These posts should be read in the order earliest to last* as very few will understand a lot of the latter posts without learning from my previous writings.


There is also my WordPress blog Consider This – more of a social commentary than one on the purpose of life. For this click HERE.


Challenging Questions? for which click HERE.

For the main site of all my writings click on my avatar above right.


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.

  1. Ian, thank you so much for taking the time and effort to assemble these insights into this vital subject… as a fellow seeker, I’m totally blown away by your writings, although I admit I haven’t yet fully read and digested all of it. Peace, to you, my brother.

      Hello Frank, fellow seeker!
      It took time but not effort, my friend, it was an experience non-pareil and an adventure.
      When you read my writings do try to do so in the order recommended – for the reasons stated in many places. Also, regarding digesting: big meals give indigestion 🙂

      EVERY DAY is Birthday,
      EVERY DAY is Mother’s day,
      EVERY DAY is Father’s day,
      EVERY DAY is Sister’s day,
      EVERY DAY is Others’ Day.
      THUS, EVERY DAY is Your Day!

      At 5.30 a.m. Monday 6th. Aug. whilst walking my pooch I slipped on black ice and caused severe damage to my shoulder necessitating the above. The prognosis is for 6 weeks of rehab in a brace followed by up to 3 months of physio.
      Please limit email to essentials.
