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...

high strung

i think
i need you

i think
i want your presence,
a mirror,
to prove
i exist

someone who hears me
so i have an effect

someone who sees me,
talks to me,
to prove
i exist

someone who feeds me,
gives me feedback,
a reflection.

without you,
i am not there

i don't see
what i am,
i don't see
that my thoughts
are important--have their imagined meaning

it's a game....
we're both in the mirror

watch the flow
in the mirror

the images
in constant motion,

try to stop it
and oh!
enormous pain,

stopping the river?
the earth...from turning?
the man...from smoking?
from taking one more....breath?

so you can hold on to this

while you war on/exclude
the rest?

let it flow,
let it rush!
let it go!
let it/him/her
pass on!

it carries you

see the illusion,
the false possibility,
of holding on/grasping,
of stopping,
of control

you ride with,
swirl with,
all of it

tip your head back,
let your hair blow
in the wind,
feel the rhythm
as the swing flies forward
and back,
and yet you go nowhere

how interesting to view
the underside of the sofa,
the springs,
the empty spaces,
the hard beams,
under the soft

it's all there
inside all of us

the cushion isn't everything

love the hard places

rocks and water,
it's all okay,
it's all

the ancient rocks
give way,
to us,
with the very gentle lapping
of soft clear water

upon the vast expanses,
the endless slabs of stone...

She loves 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
