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...

safe or happy?

do you want to be safe
or happy?

i had a very vivid dream last night

right at the edge of a beautiful golden cliff

overlooking incredibly beautiful sparkling water
far far below

there's a glider or something that i can hang onto
and fly out into the sky

away from the cliff

into an experience of freedom and beauty and height and breadth

and i know this is a choice

between holding onto fear (safety/the ground)


letting go of fear (happiness)

i am certain that if i fear
i will sink
i will drop

if i am without fear
i will remain completely capable
of soaring freely
solidly upheld

filled with wonder and joy
in this ecstatic moment

a gift far beyond the ordinary (safety)

is ancient "safety"
really more fabulous
than present joy?

    I can be safe and happy.



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
