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...

a cat in my chest

he won't let me say what I want...

i realize
won't let me say what I want

and oh,
what a loving thing...
I see it's Love Who won't react,
Whose watching over me

I see I'm awake and listening
and I see attack will only breed more attack...

I see it's the ego
for it's life

there's a cat
inside my chest


throwing itself at the window
when it perceives another cat/itself
a stranger, invader, thief
in it's territory

the power of a belief

in a frenzy
tail exploded

i watch,
observe carefully,
what is that sensation?

like the smell of popcorn
in the movie theater
put there to convince us
we are hungry...

is it true?

a moment before we smelled it,
before we walked in the door,
was our mind?

the clear blue sky
blocked now
in the dark
of the theater

i see but through
the giant yellow eyes
on the screen...

or be killed!

where is love now?

the fresh air remains
a step away

the warm sun,
the tender new shoots,`

would you die
killing your brother,
being right,

would you
be wrong about everything
see love
everywhere you look?

my child,
in the warmth
of my hearth,
the fire,
forever Home,
giving light
to see

the cat's eyes
the dark

there is
to fear

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
