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...

today we continue
tending to the garden
the soil (the natural resource)
of our mind...
from which all grows

we lovingly approach it
take in the earthy aroma
the rich texture

we gently hold a clump of soil
in our hands
and check in with its consistency--
is it moist enough to hold together,
or is more more water/flow/flexibility called for?
perhaps more air, more light, more space...?
a loosing up of "clods"?

are there tiny rocks and debris from old projects
calling to be removed?
so  cour tenderest new thoughts can 
easily grow
without any gap of nourishment?

Oh happiness!
oh garden of happy thoughts!
every morning
would i come to you
to appreciate the life here
the nourishment
 all the scents
and tastes
of Joy

without loving attention
my Self-awareness dies away--
a barren parking lot
when i return

no place of joy
to hang out in
to soak up 
under the trellis

no haven
in my heart

today i tend to my Self
with the most loving care

all that i give
is truly given to myself

and all that i don't give
is everything
that i seem to be missing

"shower the people you love with love,
yes, and show them the way that you feel...
things are gonna be much better...
if you only will..." (James Taylor....:-)))

and we always
start with ourself :-)

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
