A Gathering of Unchained Melody: I Will Step Back and Let Him Lead The Way
Lanham, MD (Vocus) August 29, 2009
This week's specially selected video feature of The Master Teacher of A Course In Miracles is entitled "A Gathering of Unchained Melody: I Will Step Back and Let Him Lead The Way". In announcing the selection, site administrator, John Gaffney, explained that "this particular video is a personal direction to the consciousness who knows himself to be in the world but not of it, and is willing to experience the Truth of the lesson and be taken far beyond the idea of separate bodies in time and space to a recognition of the light of Reality."
Gaffney intimates that, "what we are going to try to show you is the totality of the idea that the reflection of your body actually has no reality at all."
In the video, The Master Teacher focuses on Lesson 155 of A Course In Miracles, in which Jesus Christ states that, "there is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems to be. You do not change appearance, though you smile more frequently. Your forehead is serene; your eyes are quiet. And the ones who walk the world as you do recognize their own. Yet those who have not yet perceived the way will recognize you also, and believe that you are like them, as you were before."
The Master continues by demonstrating, as Jesus expresses, that "the world is an illusion. Those who choose to come to it are seeking for a place where they can be illusions, and avoid their own reality. Yet when they find their own reality is even here, then they step back and let it lead the way. What other choice is really theirs to make? To let illusions walk ahead of truth is madness. But to let illusion sink behind the truth and let the truth stand forth as what it is, is merely sanity.
"This is the simple choice we make today. The mad illusion will remain awhile in evidence, for those to look upon who chose to come, and have not yet rejoiced to find they were mistaken in their choice. They cannot learn directly from the truth, because they have denied that it is so. And so they need a Teacher Who perceives their madness, but Who still can look beyond illusion to the simple truth in them."
The idea of "stepping back" is given new meaning in this video, as the viewer begins to realize that the experience is one of stepping back entirely from the idea of a body identity and experiencing "the natural process of miraculous healing. As Jesus says in the Course, "as you step back, the light in you steps forward and encompasses the world. The immediacy of that experience is lucidly communicated by The Master Teacher.
