Today is the 50th anniversary of the beginning of Helen Schucman's 7 year process of scribing A Course in Miracles.
Sadly, I do not know how to embed this video, so click here. It is an amazing video of author and musician James Twyman meeting with the Wooten brothers working on music for his new film A Chorus in Miracles. About 8 years ago I read Victor Wooten's amazing book The Music Lesson. I was captivated by it. Clearly he was an exceptionally spiritual guy and aspects of the course came shining through but I had no idea until tonight that he actually has been a student of the course since he was 16 years old.
"This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim however at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no oppostie. This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God."
