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...

what are you?

"i have given everything i see all the meaning it has for me. "

looking out the window
at a tall pine swaying in the breeze...

i do not know what you are

what are you?

i am a house
a fence
a wooden block
a toy car
a fire to keep you warm
a fire to clear acres of land

i am oxygen
and Christmas decorations
a scent for your closet
a scent to fill your lungs in the breeze on a hike

i'm a cabin in the olden days
a boat
a tepee
a shelter
fuel to cook your food

i am the soil
a home for birds and squirrels, insects
and creeping slimy and rough organisms of all kinds

i keep deer alive in the winter
give aspirin to dull your pain
my turpentine serves artists and mechanics
and all kinds of uses

i am toothpicks to clean your teeth
pick up sticks
and bird nests
tree houses
Saturday afternoon projects bonding
sons and dads

dog houses
scout projects
old skiis
on and on and on...

wood carvers the world over
the plaque on your wall
that holds your sacred words
the frame around your art
and your children and your friends

what are you
i ask
and again
and again

there is no end

of ways
to be
of service
to the whole

we ask
to ourselves

what are you?

we would


and stay open

to all



what are you?

just listen....

all day
just listen,

the answer
be given

the Universe
share your joy
your service

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
