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...

a bad haircut

holy answers
the whole answer
has never left our mind

today i request eternity
the eternal
which is already always mine

joy is constant
or it is not joy


the so incredibly sweet smell (i wrote smile at first, which also is lovely)
of alfalfa
on an early morning walk
along some narrow country road

the shiny melting reflections
of colored lights
on cement
as rain falls at a truck stop

the smell of gasoline

the deep low vibrating song
of a cow

taking this in

through joy

because only joy
can accept
such goodness!

and suicide
a dead body
in the same picture

i ask
where is the joy in this?
the joy behind it?
that i couldn't see at the time

and now
i do see
perfect joy
willing to show herself to me

a bad haircut
was not enough for me

to recognize the futility
the uselessness
of my own thinking

joy said,
i will get right to the point
let's waste no more time on this:

your thinking is taking you nowhere
all your current thinking
is worshipping this thought

here i am
in your face
i love you so much!

i want to give you
the greatest gift i know,
i want to give you freedom
from this constant mistake,
the thought of death

see joy now,
see what you believe
and the end of suffering
is now

joy is constant
or it is not joy

the only mistake you ever think
is to think joy can pause

oh dearest child
it is not so

your joy
all joy

murder is but to show you
your mistake

when we ignore a whisper

the universe will shout,

watch out!
for that car!
(thinking that way....!)
you'll get hit!

joy is constant
or it is not joy

our nature of joy
cannot leave...

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
