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...

getting it right

would i be
if "i" got it "right"?

in the dream
the prison
of "rightness"

from this tall tower
i'm afraid to fall

one mistep
and i'm off the roof

what if
i relax
look around
have the ride of my life

who knows what will happen next?

the unknown can't be scary
only the imagined is

how do i know
what getting it right is?

i want to be alive
have fun
not careful
only one possible right footstep

that's not alive
its dead

a rerun
a past
filling in the blank on a worksheet
someone else made up!

100% correct!
they say

you win the prize:
my approval

but who are they?

do i really want their approval?

the worksheet writers
the prescribers
the "knowers" of what's good for me--
to be like them

yes, what would i have
what would i be
if "i" got it "right"?

thank you for this key
to the door

open sky
currents lift
and sail

life is
what it it
as maximal as it will ever be

right now

how light to drop
the chains of "getting it right"

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
