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...

no choice

no choice

the grass is growing

no choice

how fast or slow

no choice

it swoops and bends and swirls
and waves and drops its seeds

no choice
it ripens
and gets eaten by the birds

i can not see
where every strand of grass ends up
and ends its life

i cannot see the nutrients dismantle
and feed the next young tyke

no choice
i can not see
my son has gone,
his body laid down too

the leaf leaves the tree at a moment in time

no choice
by me

orchestrated by something
so much larger than myself

i can not see
where he has gone
i really can not see

an actual cause for tears,
i can not find

for what i can not see
is where i
am blind

a mystery
is but waiting
beyond the bend
in my mind

my son has gone walking

the corners
of my mind

no choice
the tune is playing
in the sunlight
throughout time

who thinks he holds the reins
to his life upon this earth
is misguided,
not the Guide,
that predates
and transcends
his little birth.

no choice

the beauty
of the raindrops
that fall
and fall
and fall

why why why
is there any difference
between my son

would you stop the earth from turning?
the seasons to reverse?
would you stay a man from dying
and lay on him

what on this planet
and will stay?

blessings to every single thing
as it passes

every moment
every moment
m o m e n t . . .

thank you

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
