i am a freeloader. is it true?
everything is given (and I do nothing for it)
stillness, given--can't be bought,
no matter how much money you have or pay
or anyone gives you
people and experiences are given
sound, sensation, imagination, given
grace, every single bit of it
even "money"--I have never actually "made" any.
it is given
and i give it
i am a freeloader.
is it true?
(freeloader: "a person who takes advantage of other's generosity
without giving anything in return")
It is not possible to take advantage of another's "generosity".
The universe is generous.
If someone gives, they give. Generosity is not a bargain to get.
The giving is FOR the giver.
It is not possible that I don't give in return.
Simply being is giving.
I am a mirror for everyone to see themselves. This is a priceless gift.
As I breathe in, I always breathe out.
Consciousness cannot be separate. Everything it is, is shared.
Inspiration is lived. It is shared in infinite and unseen ways.
The simple presence of awareness is the greatest gift for all.
Out of this all wisdom arises...the kindest, sanest and most loving action.
Awareness welcomes, invites, notices.
Receiving is a gift. It allows others the opportunity to give.
The Healing Power of Writing
Hi! Welcome to the Joy of Miracles.
To write is to uncover, to unhide, to bring to light, and express what is within. To share is the end of all private thoughts, all shame, all guilt, all pain and separation. Here is all Joy found at last! Writing helps us to repeat, focus, choose, and remember ideas. The purpose of this writing is healing for all of us.
This blog is inspired by "A Course in Miracles"and The Work of Byron Katie. You are invited to share your comments by clicking on the word "comment" at the end of each post. If you scroll way down there's a little info about me and also an archive of past writing you can view by clicking on the title. Thanks so much for visiting...

- I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1986. It has helped me tremendously to be a happier person by helping me change my perception of everything. I have found writing to be very helpful in the process of practicing, experiencing, and living the ideas in the Course. In 2006 I started sharing inspiration from the Course with a friend. Now it is a joy to share it with everyone. In 2009, The Work of Byron Katie found me at a woman's group. The Work is a way to identify and question your stressfuI beliefs. I dove right in and in April 2013 became a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. I work with people privately and offer online classes. Please visit www.joyofthework.com for more information. I also still occasionally lead the 11am Sunday Gathering at the Rocky Mountain Miracles Center in Denver.
