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...

God is in the flames
the blackened walls
the broken toilet
the soggy wood
the wilted paintings

or I don't exist

an electrical fire
is as natural as a forest fire

there is no difference
form must change

the body must go
it is the purpose of time

fire clears the way
the old growth
the ancient forest
the thick heavy stands
that we thought would last forever
are going

making way for the new
for space
for the meadow 
for the sunshine
for the enriching nutrients
for new perception

good bye spinning fan that went nowhere but in circles
good bye toilet hero--who knew that you would end your life in such a glorious heroic
way of putting out a fire and saving the rest of the house...

good bye paintings...thank you for the experience of creating you

thank you God
for showing me that there is nothing to fear

we wash everything in the house
just like we do our laundry

standing face to face with our fear
is the gift we all desire more than anything

it is the moment we can be free of it

like a brother who jumps out from behind the door and tries to make us jump
we can simply remain at ease 
and see there is nothing to fear
we are no longer fooled
and we are so grateful it is so

now is the gift of conviction
expanded and strengthened

what else could i possibly want

you do not ask to much of life,
but far too little

you would give up Everything
for this one little thing

but only Everything will ever satisfy

no fire can ever take anything real away

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
