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...

sliding down the mountain....

there is no substitute for peace (acim text 499.2.7)

i lower myself

the crust

the surface

it gets easier to move

form is less solid

i am not the thing
i was at the surface

perhaps "on top of the world"
is as far as you can get from God,
from center

from the molten ongoing creation:

opening to light
far beyond the world's light

perhaps "on top of the world"
is not where i want to be;
does not hold peace,
but fear of falling...

i would let go of the world

sink inward

and let


that is
closer than my body

save me

from what i thought
i was

  1. I am not what I ought to be.
    I am not what I want to be.
    I am not what I hope to be.
    But still, I am not what I used to be.
    And by the grace of God. I am what I am.
    ...john Newton (1725-1807)


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
