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 better mother

who would i be
without the thought
i should have been a better mother?

i'd have compassion for your pain,
for believing your thoughts,
your sleep,
your innocence

i'd see that's not who you truly are,
that it's not personal;
it's just a concept
being acted out

in stillness
i'd say
it is not so

see the joke underneath it all,
the impish grin

you're right...
how silly to be upset over this...
neither of us really want this

let's go play
outside in the sun
that's what we both want--
just to be happy

take my hand,
friends again
at last

One Father

the scolder
calling for love

scolding myself
not good enough
not good enough
not good enough
i tried to get rid of it on you

if only you would change
i would be happy/healed

instead i said over and over and over to you
not good enough
not good enough
not good enough...
a thorn in my side,

i would give her a hug

oh dear precious one
lay down your sharp knives
slicing yourself to bits
for something that is not true

your worth is God's
your spirit undefiled
forever unharmable

the radiant pearl

dear One
lay down the blade
your dream is madness
lay down
lay down
lay down

into my arms
let your tears fall

into my arms
let the ache fall

into my arms
let your weariness tell its story
hot air dispelled at last

oh dear One
it is not so

the blindness is cold now

just rest awhile
let the blabbering
the blubbering

let the throbs
the tales
the heavy heavy chains
lay now on the ground

open your Eyes
see Me

oh dear One
see only Me now

i see You dear One

the tenderness
is undeniable

dear One

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
