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...

fully alive

the bottom drops out

free falling

in God

nothing to hold onto

no point of reference

no past

no future


wide awake

cause and effect simultaneous


no beginning

no end

beyond words


grace is Home

our natural state



grace is before

we identify with our thinking

breathe it out

in silence is all sound

in space

everything there is


behind my thinking,


i would not make a god

of my thinking

the world bows
to your glory

it lays
at your feet

it waits
but for your greeting

for your loving eyes to lay upon it

its watching your every move
so ready to give you
overwhelming love
the moment
you give it a chance

just like a devoted dog
just waiting for the moment
when you pat its head

and look into its eyes
and acknowledge your love
for it

the world but waits for your openness,
your love,
to jump up
and hug you

wagging its tail

forever ready
to jump
your arms

sitting in the pool

i notice

perfect clarity
through the water
to the bottom of the pool


shifting my focus
to the surface of the water

i see

the reflection
of the bars
of a fence

focus on one,
the other completely disappears


my desire
my reality

everything i look upon
teaches me


to come

if i open

all i am

to it


palo verde tree,

how can i trust my brother?

open your eyes

swaying so gently in the breeze

do you see any resistance in me at all?

only softness
only beauty
only ease
only grace

i have no fight against myself

i am you

do you see my flexibility?
my relaxation
my abundance
my green green green color of life?

do you see my solid trunk?

do you see i am fully fed
gleaming in the sun
even in the desert?

do you see every tiny leaf
holds nothing but love
and gratitude?

what is there
you could possibly fear
about me?

i am your brother
i am you
there is no difference--
only life
pouring out of me
to soothe
your tired eyes
and open heart

i am you
and so happy to receive
the sun's heat
pouring down on me

i have no need or desire
to know which way the wind will blow
or when it will rain next

this moment
has more beauty
more love
more life
than i can put into words

i simply open

Infinite Universes

so sweet
so sweet
so very very very sweet

to open

end of story

hi again all you beautiful sparks!

back from katie's
(i wrote this there)

nothing is autistic
(this is the end of my story that i was the mother of an autistic son.
my son was not autistic
autism doesn't exist
there is only love)

who dares?
to tear the petals off the blossom
that is born

who dares?
to paint it black
and teach us it is so

who dares?
to break its stem
so it will match our own

who dares?
to carve its heart
so it will fit the book

who dares?
to call it wrong
when there is nothing but brightness to see

who dares?
to close its ears
and call this singer deaf

who dares
to open his heart
as wide as it can go

and wider still

and wider still

and still you have more to go

who of us

would dare

to shed
our deepest inner skin

and feel the pain

we have pursued

by not seeing

we are dreaming

there is no confusion
my Holiness

cannot dissipate

into nothingness
as a puddle
in the light of the sun

we simply lay the problem
the uncertainty
the misunderstanding
before God

we surrender all desire
for the hidden
and unhidden benefits
of holding on to unhappiness

in that instant
in the willingness to totally let go
of our side of the story
our truth
our defenses
and justification for fear


we are
the shining white knight

and JOYOUS!!!

owning every inch
of Creation

oh what a happy

the way of it

when i no longer asked for anything

it poured out before me

clear as day


i am free from asking for what can never happen,
from arguing with reality

no one can ever give me love and happiness

because i already have it

i am it!!!

i love this!

i need never ask anyone for anything

i only see mySelf full and radiant before me

and boy! do i ever rejoice!!!!

projection makes perception (t445)

here's what i see

everyone's truest deepest desire is total/perfect honesty

to know themselves

no obstacles
no hidden crap
everything out in the open
no defenses against love/truth

there is nothing else to want
but holiness

nothing but this could ever satisfy
Holiness Itself

the end of all lies

constant clear communication
from Father to Son
one and the same

endless increasing light

Joy only gives increase

i am under no laws but God's--only increase

Truth remains in us
radiant as a star
pure as light
innocent as love (p?)

it's the only place
we can ever truly meet!!!!

and we ARE

reality cannot possibly fight itself

love does not fight love

oneness does not fight oneness

it is in total agreement
total sameness

it is impossible truth could attack truth
truth is identical to truth

my nature
cannot fight what it is

it simply is
what it is--all of it

i am
i am

Joy is Joy.
nothing else makes sense

that's why the mind is troubled

it has a story
that doesn't coincide with reality
and it simply can't make any sense of it

they both can't be true

so the mind
is continually
trying to figure out
what is
really going on--
how to reconcile two completely different views of reality.

and now it has come
to the very logical conclusion
that is it impossible
that opposites are true.

Only One is.

It is the only possibility.

When this conclusion is finally reached

there is no possibility
the mind
can ever be troubled

this is growing up

we see the childish viewpoint
was but a limited perspective

now is the Whole Picture
Shining Clearly
in Our Mind

is it really possible that you know
how God will show up at your door today?

everywhere you look

God is

every face
every thought
every question

all taking you

be not content with future happiness.
it has no meaning
and is not your just reward.(t566)

sacrifice now no longer

behind everything,

the only possible response

we let go
and let it flow
to us
from us
through us
all around us

"practice not-doing,
and everything will fall into place."

reality unfolds without desire (you did not create God!!!)

bringing with it
more beauty
more luxury
more exquisite surprises
than imagination could ever devise!(bk in 1000 names for Joy)

let us know we are fighting reality
our very nature

at odds with
at war with
in disagreement
with God

we are fighting Love
we are fighting Truth

even when we get what we "wanted"
we want it to last (bk)...
to clamp on to it
forever still in time

when you allow life to flow like water
you become that water

and you watch life
lived to the ultimate,
giving you
need (bk)

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
