Here is a video from Ken Wapnick that I think needs to be listened to over and over. It’s 60 minuets of good logic. So make sure you have time before stating – a great explanation of the “Course”. The test and workbook usage and their relationship.

Here is a great video from Ken Wapnick (Foundation for Inner Peace) on seeing through the Christ’s mind. Lesson 124:
“Today we will not doubt His Love for us, nor question His protection and His care. No meaningless anxieties can come between our faith and our awareness of His Presence. We are one with Him today in recognition and rememberance. We feel Him in our hearts. Our minds contain His Thoughts; our eyes behold His loveliness in all we look upon. Today we see only the loving and the lovable.
We see it in appearances of pain, and pain gives way to peace. We see it in the frantic, in the sad and the distressed, the lonely and afraid, who are restored to the tranquility and peace of mind in which they were created. And we see it in the dying and the dead as well, restoring them to life. All this we see because we saw it first within ourselves.”

Got to thank Team for this tip – last year he told me about the 3M filter sheets that you can put in your aircons and clean the air in the room. They work excellently – 350 baht each pkg. and I change every month in heavy polluted air. One filter fits 2 aircons for me.
I ordered mine from Lazada OnLine and got fast shipment.
Hope this helps

I received this comment from Ed :
I went there today…First of all, it is open only on Wednesday from 1pm to 4 or 4:30. Spent over 30 minutes just finding the location as it is not priority for the people in the main area where you have to register so that you can be seen in the clinic and pay your bill when it’s all done. I went with a Thai lady to help me and they told us to go to several different locations before we finally got the straight poop; they didn’t even know at the desk where I registered.
The article above is highly misleading to say the least, about the number of medical staff and the number of doctors…they must have been talking about the staff for the entire hospital.
If you plan on going, you definitely need a Thai person to assist you. English is not spoken, it is a Thai hospital that caters to lower income Thais (my bill was 100 baht after speaking to the doctor). If you think you’d like to go, you go first to building #3 where you need to register (need passport). Then, you go up the escalaor to the second floor and after you land, turn left and keep an eye out for an area on the right side that leads to a balcony. When you get to the balcony, turn left and the clinic is the last office at the end. The Cannabis “clinic” is one of three rooms in that office.
I waited close to 2 hours. There was only 1 doctor, and she does not speak very much, if any, English. She has to fill out a questionairre, so you need to coach your Thai assistant with what ailments you hope to alleviate…I went in for insomnia and anxiety. There were 3 nurses attending mainly to administrative duties. Only the one doctor.
The bottom line is that they were out of stock on “medicine” (I don’t know exactly what I will get, but I imagine CBD oil) and they are going to call me when they can provide to me in roughly 3 weeks.
There were 2 people in line ahead of me and maybe 2 more behind; a far cry from the 22 the article claims for the opening. The first was another falang with his wife or gf, and he was talking to the doctor for
the better part of an hour, and the doctor did not arrive until about 1:30. The lady in front of me was around 20 minutes.
Parking was a bitch and we ended up parking at least 1/4 mile from the hospital.
I have no idea what the cost of the medication will be, how much I will receive, or if it will help my ailments.
PS. I went there with Simon and did not have this experience – ours was excellent and attentive – got right in and the Dr I met spoke English – but the clinic was for PAIN control first and they told me that they did not expect the CBD oils or Traditional Thai Herbal Dr for at least 2-3 more months.

Here’s a great article sent to me by Kevin.
Jerry, a friend of mine , living in Dok Kaew Garden assisted living facility on McKean hospital Senior Center grounds showed me this beautiful area near his room. What a wonderful place to meditate and relax.
This is my 16 x 16 inch digital Acrylic Oil painting. I’ve told them to keep a room open as I plan to retire there when my roving days are over – probably fairly soon Lol.
Rolling out faster than I thought it would – soon to be in YOUR neighborhood.
Below is a link to a great lecture. But pay close attention to what he is saying and at the end, in part 2, of what he is actually practicing in his daily life. Gnostics or Orthodoxy – both extreme sides of the same road. WHICH one is right? WHAT is the MIDDLE path?
Look, Listen, and do not judge! See the world as a illusion of separation and specialness – NOTHING more and let it go. NOT as good or evil – those are just judgements, made from my limited perspective, without ALL the facts. Projections of specialness and separation. Indeed:
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13)
NOTHING is hidden, NO SECRET ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE – ALL HAS BEN REVEALED – if I but look around and see through the eyes of Christ Jesus and relinquish all judgments to HIM.

Knowledge of God, Creation and Flood in China’s History and Character writing.
The God and Savior of Ancient China (Shocking!)
The Gospel Message in Chinese Characters
Note: The oral story of the flood, tower, and migration (Genesis) is told both in both the Chinese Pictograms and Moses Myths. – but they are 750-1000 years apart. Both cover the time from creation to the confusing of the languages and scattering of the peoples (tribes). They call their Gods by different names but everything else seems to be the same. Both are monotheistic and comply to the same yearly sacrifice to their God – heifer, sheep, unblemished, killed with a spear, burnt at an alter. And both have sin and a SAVIOR or Redeemer. Interesting !!!
I will explore this subject in more detail in future posts.

Been watching Netflix’s “Messiah”. 4 episodes so far and it’s great and keeps you at the edge of your seat. But one glaring point has to be considered. Is Jesus -the man, or , The Christ – The Spirit prophesied to return and usher in the new era.
TV has to use bodies, so the lead is characterized and looks like what is considered the historic Jesus. But why would He come back in flesh, when He stated “His Kingdom was NOT of this world”?
Jesus said His kingdom is in the heavenly world – Spirit – thought, beyond the material – where all is One. It’s going to be interesting to see how they develop the message presented.
They tell you that it’s about a charismatic man who sparks a spiritual movement and political unrest. A fictional story – or is it? Who will we follow – the man or the Spirit? Is the truth revealed EVEN in this series?

Ask and you shall find: I am now exploring the Open Yale University Courses available on YouTube:
- 2006, Introduction to Old testament (Hebrew Bible) by Professor Christine Hayes and
- 2009, Introduction to New Testament” by Professor: Dale B. Martin, Woolsey Professor of Religious Studies. . (Note: This course does not look at the texts as scripture but rather as literature available at that time.)
All sessions are complete with resources, sessions in html, and transcripts in html. I plan to study the material to better my understanding of formal accepted theology and Christian practices.
Quickly perusing the course has already given me a several topics I need to explore:
- Kaufman’s Metadivine Realm vs. Hebrew God
- Marcion’s teachings in early Christianity.
- Melchizedek Genealogy.
For example, Marcion, in approx. 145 CE :
“ It is ironic that perhaps one of the most influential figures in Church history is also one of the most reviled heretics……… taught that the God of the Old was not the God of the New Testament. The God of the Old Testament was the ‘creating God’, but he was a harsh, cruel, and incompetent . Marcion contrasted this creating God with the God of Jesus, who was nothing less than love and grace.” (Early Christian Writings,P. Kuby)
In his teachings Marcion rejected entirely the Old Testament, butchered Paul’s letters, and taught that there was ‘secret knowledge’ taught by Jesus to his disciples and only the church few knew. Heresy indeed.
It is interesting to me that his differences noted between the ‘creating’ God of Geneses 1 and the ‘making’ God of Geneses 2 is not fully considered. Traditionally “God” becomes the collective of 1 & 2 but with different names to describe his attributes according to later standardized Jewish doctrine.. I believe Marcion saw a glimpse of the truth but was unable to express it in words or ideas and mistaking threw out the Old Testament.and other basic doctrine which would be considered heresy. I will explore this in future posts and submit a model of the “Illusion of realty” which I call the Dream of Specialness or Separation, the basic problem. I believe this is what’s fully presented in “A Course in Miracles”. It does not lessen Jesus’s role or doctrine, and explains many of Jesus’s sayings, teachings and commandments.
Since I began this search for the truth, additional information is coming to light that shows that ancient Chinese characters actually tell the same story as expressed in the Hebrew Bible using a common oral-based tradition. Where the Hebrew Bible has Elohim – Yahweh, Chinese have Tian – Shang Di I hoping I can bring this all together.

Finally here: it’s been a long time coming.
We are on our way to I believe some marvelous new medicines which will develop if this “Coconuts” article is true and promoted.
Legal medicinal marijuana preparations are in the works – SOON
Here’s the article from ThaiVisa.com Ciao
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..
