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...

a baby is not born into a world without air or water or a mother

all these exist as conditions for a baby to be conceived

so is Love

not created/extended

in a vacuum

but only within Love Itself

fear/sin/guilt is but an unquestioned concept

question the truth of the belief

and if we really are quiet and deeply ask
the answer will always be

no, it's not true

because I am the sunshine

i am the enthusiasm

i am passion

i am Life

i am Spark

i am Electricity

i am Being Itself

and no loss of this Reality is ever possible

we are

All There IS

Only Love,

know thyself

Oneness is the Answer to every question
every problem
every doubt 
we have ever thought up

my Oneness
me free

freedom is freedom from two wills

freedom is peace of mind

a mind all going in the same direction
One Force
United in Purpose
Identical in Nature

Every part strengthening and ever exciting and bringing passion to every other part by its existence:-)))))))))))
(i love this!!!!)

Synergy of God!!!!
the everexpanding Nature of Joy/Laughter/Oneness/Total Absence of anything else

We are only God

Nothing else is true

Know thyself
Here is all freedom

sooooooooooooooooooooooooo grateful for Our Holiness,

God is in Everything I see....

a visual reminder...
 of seeing... 

love, Joy


Hi all you beautiful lights of God!

who are you 
right now

without your dirt?

take all that dirt away
let it fall
loosen it up

the dirt is not part of you
and has no effect on what you are

under the fear

is only Light
only Love
only Peace
everfull and expanding

today we  take a look at the dirt
and then take a bath

we let our minds soak in the Love/Truth of God
and without effort

all else is dissolved

Only Light remains

We are Light

and we LOVE to be it

and rejoice and give thanks!

in gratitude,

pain is proof of self deception (wb361)

we are lying to ourself

we are not being honest with ourself

we have judged/attacked ourself
and are DENYING IT

we are denying our own self hate

we are trying to cover it up and hide it

this is the cause of all our pain

 we put it on something else that looks like it's outside of us
so it looks like we have no control over it---

the illusion of being a victim

this is our wish
to be unfairly treated
acted out in our mind

and you are free!
(this is the truth that sets you free)

Own that you are doing ALL to yourself
and now is all your power returned
All power in Heaven and earth is you!!!!

the role of victim is impossible
and then so is fear impossible

there is nothing to fear
because you are in charge
and can always choose differently


i feel angry
i feel furious
i feel sad
i feel lonely
i feel frustrated and separate
YES!!!!! we do!!!
no more lying!
and Jesus is right here for us
in this moment

anger is a call for comfort

hidden anger is refusing to accept help

as long as we deny our hurt
the antidote remains untouched 
in the cupboard

today we end all our pain
by opening up to all our little secret fears
and allowing the antidote be given us.

there IS nothing to fear
Perfect Love IS here

pain is a wrong perspective (wb361)

we have  twisted our view of reality

we are trying to squash Infinity
into a tiny speck (form)!!!!!!!!!


do you see the humor now??

God is not in our
version of reality

it is too tiny

too small 

too stupid
for intelligence to be in it all

it is way too limited for Infinite Joy

has no limits
no container
no concept
no form
no time
no space
no beginning and no end
no absence

it has no pain
so pain=mistake

we let go of this tiny speck
we hold out for "happiness"

and let real Joy be ours instead
Infinite Joy
beyond all imagination

today we are HUMBLE
and let God be GOD!!!!!!

and let Eternity be ours now!

God is so much better than anything we could make up!!!!!!!

in Humility we trust
  we no longer deny  our Wild True Beauty 
but love it dearly,
 instead of loving pain.

today i am open to be/receive Infinite Joy,
instead of my idea of joy.

my defenselessness

opens all doors

clears the path of all obstacles
before i am there

opens me

unlocks me

unconstricts my thinking/my mind

releases the world from its heavy armor
and the world gives thanks to me
for  dropping this heavy heavy heavy burden
and to remember what it is to be light and free

Defenselessness Himself
so without attack
so humble
so undone
so light
me/the world/ego thought system

goes around it

awakens something that is not usually in my awareness

"poofs" away everything else

without effort

it draws me in
it draws in the Defenselessness in me
and nothing else
everything else is left behind

i am not a body
and so 
neither is anyone else

i remember
and so do they
this mirror image

i am only Love
not here to get anything
simply to be
All that I am
Infinite Joy Peace Love
and give it all away

i need do nothing

Defenselessness is our only true will

and we sing out in joy and gratitude and delight

Only Heaven exists

oh oh oh i love you,


my defenselessness

we defer to God

we would escape our own condemnation (t582)

our own suicide

we are all suicidal

holy cow!(it all makes so much sense more wondering....if we'll ever have "world peace".....or......)

a part of us all is wishing to die(we no longer blame Congress :-)))))) or chocolate ice cream....for our problems....)
to kill our self
to hack and destroy
what is putrid (only complete honesty will take us home....Hit shit and you will want to get out.......:-)))shit is the gift of motivation

self hatred  (is not where we want to spend our vacation.....)

it MUST be that something has gone wrong

how could it be that a thing created could/would truly will to destroy itself?

if life is the destruction of itself--there is NOTHING,
and never could anything exist

what would destroy
could not create/love/be joyous in the first place

so it must be that what created us 
is still there

because we have not suceeded in destroying ourself
though we have longed to for ever so long

it must be that we are being lived by something else
that is indestructible
no matter what our illusion of reality  is

though we destroy our bodies
and attack ourselves all day long


mistakes are powerless against truth

today we give it up
we recognize our futile efforts 
have been nothing at all

we give thanks for this light
for the Sanity of this revealed to us

Infinite Purity of Thought
as our Creator
as our sole standard of Reality/Truth

the nothingness of our deathwish 
once felt as heavy and paralyzing
is but a puff of smoke
that is gone forever

Love is
Love is strong
Love is invulnerable
Love is all there ever was, is, or ever will be
and only this is true.

an imagined raindrop
did not put out the Sun

in deep gratitude,

true welcome

"suffering is an emphasis upon all the world has done to injure you"(t581)

the world has done nothing to injure me!

it is but bright and beautiful

and so welcoming

and loves  so deeply to join in my laughter

to be released completely 
from all other thoughts

only Heaven is where we love to be

we are just so ready

just waiting so eagerly for a joke to set us free

for something crazy and silly and goofy 
to release us 
from our serious version of reality

oh, Joy!
when you walk in the room
we will to see you dance
to see you leap
to see your love on fire
in your eyes 
and in your motions

we join in your laughter
before the joke
 before the words are said

Oh beloved Joy that we share
come come
open are we 
to this luminous offering of Love

oh Holy Hope 
of all the world
there is nothing else we would rather see

we have arrived
we are Home


oh happy day to us all,

what do you treasure?

total freedom from fear


everyone wills to play with you
to be your friend
they will you be happy and free!

if anything doesn't seem this way

it is but a scared little child you look upon...

from our swing we wave
and smile
and laugh
in the sun

and soon the scared little child
can resist no more
and comes running
to join in the fun....

what do you treasure?
how much time will you give to what you treasure today?

the ego will tell you that freedom, joy and peace--God

is work
hard work

Freedom is not work!!!!!!!!

freedom is completely free to play!!!

play is free
and EASY!!!!!!!!

from our swing...
from the height of God
we wave to ourselves
and smile
and laugh
in the Son

and soon
the scared little child in us
can resist
no more
and comes running
to freedom/God

love to us all for all the freedom we share,

i must be holding 

on to something

from the past

 my past thoughts(self concept)
want to stay

i have fed them

cherished them

lived by them

for a long time

i gave them a home

they called my mind home

help me to see this differently--this old film, fossil, mistake,
childish viewpoint....

we gently watch them

without attack

we see our old high school buddies

still living in the past
refusing to take responsibility
attacking God, the world, myself
refusing to grow up


and with God's help

i let go of everything i ever thought i knew about anything
true or false
good or bad
past present future

i don't know what reality is
i don't know anything

am i completely defenseless
i am not a body

i am

the Whole Son of God

nothing else

today we let go of everything we ever thought we knew about anything

only here 

is freedom

means without sin


you cannot be without sin a little!!!!!! (wbp55)

if your mind is part of God's 
you MUST be without the idea of sin

(sin is an unquestionable interpretation that demands your death/punishment)

we have made many mistakes in interpretation

mistakes are innocent
mistaken interpretation is innocent and harmless--it never changes Truth
misunderstanding is innocent
doubt is innocent
fear is innocent

every mistake we ever made
came from the one mistake/misunderstanding
what we are

that is the only mistake we ever made!
and we are so innocent!!!!and glad to know we were mistaken...

our perspective is changed...
we were under the illusion
that we could actually leave God--
a very wild thought!

God is all there is!
we are not our wild thought--"joy schultz"

we are God :-)))))))))))))
for ever
and ever 
Pure God!

from this place of Truth
shines all Joy
all amazing grace
all the shining faces 
that will greet you 
in your gratitude

from this place of Truth
your relieved heart
is totally released
to fly wide open
and expand beyond anything
this world has ever conceived of

in this Light
All is clear
All is One
All is sparkling

today we remember
all our mistakes were harmless....

and we thank God for our innocence

in Love with our Innocence,

all arms laid down
so so so light
so free
so available
to All That Is
in Love,

About Me

My photo
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 for more information. I also still occasionally lead the 11am Sunday Gathering at the Rocky Mountain Miracles Center in Denver. For more information
