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...

love the bud

tree, what can you teach me today?

see the big picture
the whole trunk
from roots to sky

see the breadth-- the branches
the kindness all around him
that reaches out
and skirts him 360 degrees
where ever he goes

see the old leaves
that still remain
all crinkled and
so ready
to easily fall away
with a slight brush of hand
or whisper of wind

what a joy to see how
ready they are to drop
having served their purpose

see how far they have come

as soon as they are ready
they will be gone

in the exact moment it is time
and not a moment before

there is no rushing
your growth
your readiness

the beauty of the flower
is complete
from bud to blossom

you cannot force the bud

to force is to kill
to murder
to destroy
to deny
to desire something to be different than it is
to think "should"

it is to not see
what is

love the bud
we adore babies

that's what we are!

we don't expect babies
to take or pass the SAT,

we simply love them
exactly as they are

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
