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...

getting the joke

i am still reeling from a huge realization last week
that i got from my Work partner....

i am starting to get the joke....

i believed my whole life

i hated violence

and i have realized

i was the biggest fan of all!

i pushed the button in my mind
over and over and over and over and......

and played out the violent movies

i accepted the invitation
gladly jumped on the ticket of admission
to the story of hell, suffering, and eternal damnation

no Baptist minister
no violent video game maker
no rich Hollywood movie maker capitalizing on the lower drives of human beings
no crime tv show
no NEWS reporter or editor and filter of what the public is fed
no politician justifying war in the name of democracy, peace and freedom
no military industrial complex needing violence for its perpetuation
no gang member living out his inevitable cultural beliefs

no one else has flipped the switch inside my mind every moment of the day

take back ownership

of your Space

of this moment

there is no Hollywood director
but You

every thought that is not loving
is murder!!!! (a Course in Miracles...p?)

every single unloving thought
is a violent video game
is innocent child abuse

bitch no more
at the world
out there!

there is no out there!!!!

i(my thinking) am the problem

i am the Answer

how incredibly funny
that i never saw myself
as such a fan
of violence

killing the bull with my own hands
nailing myself to the cross

what a trickster/deniar i've been
to lay this on someone else

"try not to shape this day
as you believe would benefit you most.
for you cannot conceive of all the happiness
that comes to you without. your. plan.....:-)))

This is my Eastertime
and I would keep it holy.
I will not defend(defense is the first act of war)
myself, because God needs no defense
against the truth of His reality."(wbp256.26)

i leave the tv off
in my mind

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
