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...

can you really see...with your back?

how can you see something
your back is facing?

when you've turned away
turned your back....

God...God....where are you?
help me!
as we reach for the bottle
the chocolate
the body
the "toy" (not the Real Thing)

facing toward the world
God out of sight
only because
we are grasping
for what we believe
will satisfy
our hunger
bring us
even "happiness", we call it

a toy car
is not
a real one

you can't get in it
it doesn't fit
it's way too small for you

so we pretend
to get in
and drive around
and fantasize
all the places
it will take us--
so much "fun"

all pretend
and no substitute
for the Real Thing

for true happiness
for the truth
of what we are

not a doll,
but God
wholly creative
ever expanding

would we not turn around
for This?

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
