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...

shooting up

last night watching Eckhardt Tolle on youtube

i got crystal clarity

of what i had done....

laying in bed
arguing with reality
i was frustrated because
i thought
something wasn't happening
that i thought i wanted

i was basically shooting up
my own poison

i was literally injecting venom
into my system

even science will support this:
stressful thoughts
produce harmful chemicals
in our bodies

in the control panel of my mind
i was choosing
to believe
something should be different

wishing for an impossible situation

i felt the "high" of the ego
the rush
of frustration

i internally
raged war
against what was....

i shot up

my old habit

an addiction
reinforces itself

completely asleep
i thought someone else was involved

Eckhardt brought clarity

the problem/situation/conflict was completely internal
(even though i've heard this a thousand times before,
somehow i just got it in such a more powerful detached way...)

it had nothing to do with anyone else

it was only an old drug addict wanting another high,
another escape,
refusing to take responsibility for his life,
for his happiness
just like a junkie...
the ego is always desperate for a fix

it can't exist without pain
it is addicted to it

i saw the addict, this time, as separate from myself

i came completely clean

thank you God
for clarity

i would no longer support
my ego's habit

i would no longer support
my ego's preference for hallucination
in place of Reality...

i would no longer
what is

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
