Frank’s Musings

Sawadee Khrap

These are my thoughts after today’s meditation:

To pray for healing of the body is to pray for just another illusion- an illusion of health. But still an illusion. Sickness is a defense against the truth. The underlying judgment, that the body is sick. must be first evaluated as false and let go – Heal first the mind that thinks the body is sick.

And yet any sickness is deigned to cover or camouflage the underlying truth or actual judgment made

1. First I decide that I need defense against SOME truth,
2. then I project sickness as a defense to camouflage the “truth” 
3. then considering the sickness real, I ask for healing of the body.

Not once in this process did I consider the underlying truth or judgment that I thought needed defense against. WHAT, but what truth – ONENESS, I am not separated from God. I am as God Created me. Spirit, not a body, One with ALL. The body and sickness is my Belief, my Judgement, that I am seperate from God. An Illusion.

Healing can only occur if I offer my willingness to allow the holy Spirit into my mind to examine all the judgments I have made and allow HIM to correct the one needed to proceed to healing today. Forgiveness, the correction of faulty judgments, is the function of the Holy Spirit – I NEED DO NOTHING – But be willing to have then corrected. In fact, I can do nothing – I HAVE ESTABLISHED THEM AS MY TRUTH.

I always have to remember that God provides all I need if I but look around. Medicine, although magical in form, is still provided until I can let the Holy Spirit examine and remove the obstacle or judgment that blocks my healing. My Faith assures me that God’s help is always present, I but need to abandon the idea that I know what is best and just surrender my mind to the Holy Spirit’s healing.

I have NO answers, in fact I have NO question, I come with an open mind asking only for the TRUTH to be revealed.

The Gospel–Good News

Sawadee Khrap

Here is my Theology on the meaning of Christ’s Gospel.  A Non-Dualistic view as stated in Genesis 1 of the Bible and taught by Jesus “The Christ”   What did  Jesus mean when He said  “In my Father’s house are many mansions, I go to prepare a place for you”?   Consider::

  • Hindu-Advaita, Vedanta
  • Buddhist – Mahayana,Theravada, Vajrayana
  • Chinese – Taoism
  • Judaism-Kabbalah
  • Islam – Sufism
  • New Age – ACIM,    all all the other non-dualistic schools of every “Religion”

Would be glad to answer any questions. Let me know in the comments.Timeline-Projection-single

Nanee’s and The Erotic Garden

Sawadee Khrap

On March 3rd, Simon and I took a quick trip to Mae Rim and visited  2 locations.

At both places we met the owner and artist who developed the attraction.  They are located right next to each other in beautiful Mae Rim valley area.  What a day to relax and meet two wonderful people , each with inspiring stories. – Great places to visit and NOT the usual tourist traps, but unique sites of Unseen Thailand.  Seeing is believing, so I really recommend that you visit them yourself on your next trip here..

Nanee’s:

Bristle Brushes

Sawadee Khrap

Started using the “Bristle brushes” in Photoshop for my paintings.  Much better control and effect.  This is a scene I saw on a recent trip a few weeks ago to “The Giant”  treehouse restaurant in Doi Saket, north of Chiang Mai.  A small coffee shop on the way had this display in their parking lot – just had to paint it.  Digital Acrylic Oil painting —  15 inch x 10 inch.Garden-Bike-web

P.S.   Went back with other friends yesterday and had car trouble, my 4 wheel drive unit locked up and I had to be towed back to the repair shop – still without a car so I had time to finished this painting I was working on – funny it was a scene from my last visit there – maybe a omen.

Hmong Village–Doi Pui

Sawadee Khrap

This Digital Acrylic Oil painting, 10in x 15in canvas HmoungVillage-web6is my interpretation of a great view I spotted while on a trip to visit the Hmong village at Doi Pui with Simon last week.  I particularly liked the contrast of the brilliant red poinsettias against the blue sky and the rustic building.

Getting back to painting

Sawadee Khrap

New computer running, I started back painting.  My first task was to finish a painting of a “Smiling Buddha”.  I think I saw it somewhere near Sukhothai but not sure.  I did use the new plug-in AD-Impasto which gives me the ability to present an impasto simulation effect to the paint – mild but very noticeable at full size  – this painting is at high printing resolution 300 dpi, 10 in x 15 in –Digital Acrylic Oil paint.Buddha-web
