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...

is a lie
cowards tell themselves

so we don't have to try
so we don't find out the truth

where is the proof?

can you be absolutely certain
that you are inadequate?

how would you know?

you just keep telling yourself this...
you've never really tried

you've never given all you have
you've never given yourself to anything wholly

you've never surrendered your life
your personality
your self concept
you've never given up your beliefs about yourself
you've never thrown it all to the wind
you've never yet  wildly abandoned yourself to God
you've never really let everything fall away 
and be subordinate to faith
and just given yourself completely to 
this big idea that is bigger than you

you are still holding on for the dear life of your personality

forget your crap
your gifts are not yours to hide

you don't belong to you
you are part of the whole
you belong to everyone
your gifts are for them

what about all those loving hearts
that are just waiting to light up as they receive your gifts?

it cannot be that life itself is incapable of
expressing itself fully

what if you made a fool of yourself?
what if you failed?

no one can fail 
who goes 100% with her heart

this is life
in this moment

this is living

anything else is death
anything less is failure

we are not looking for "results"
we have no other motive 
but to be true to our deepest Love

to be honest
to live totally honestly
our actions totally consistent with our thought

we can't hang onto the ground and fly!!!

we must let go completely

we must look up
and quit looking at the ground
if we want to fly

quit the reruns
it's time for the real thing!


  1. Wow, talk about hitting the nail on the head...I really needed to hear that as it really expresses what has been circling my mind the last few days. Now my question is, how do I let go? How do I truly open my heart and mind and let go of the bs so that faith takes complete hold? Carolyn B.....

  2. we do it in this moment
    and we CAN do it, because we realize
    we do this
    or we are dead

    and we are done with death
    we have done it for soooo long

    we choose life
    and we choose it together
    we recognize how powerful our helpers
    are and we call on them
    faithfully when we need support
    because it is but one Strength/Life we share.

    thanks so much for your enthusiasm.
    we let
    the way



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
