Escape.


In the East the symbol of wisdom.

In advertising, and perhaps the media, there is a preoccupation with “Escape”: We are urged to escape through this television program or that, this film or that, or escape to this place or that or via some music or other and so on. For this theme to be so prevalent we must seek release from something! . . . . . And, if we seek release from something we must be stressed by that something.
What could it be?

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 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.

    … escape from the self, the sometimes (if not often or even always) painful confrontation with our imprinted limitations and stupidity. Escape from the sorrow of being, and ultimately the escape from all fears, especially the fear of death .,,
    [but all this darkness makes us forget the beauty of life, so escape from fear also means to miss beauty, and to miss life itself, to be replaced by the experiences of others, lurking their way in our not so conscious minds, second hand emotions from films, books, thrills … without ever knowing how it really feels to hug a tree]

      Your very act of answering as you have comes under the heading of “Seek and you shall find.” and here I repeat:You shall find!

Well, what do you say?
