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...

laughter will replace all pain

laughter will re-place all pain,

i choose the joy of God instead of pain

laughter/freedom is my inheritance

a joke always has a truth
and then a funny take on it,
a strange, surprising
delightful, innocent mishearing,

mis-understanding brings joy
reminds us nothing is serious
there is room/space
of lightheartedness,
indeed, that space is Life

like Art Linkletter's
kid's say the darndest things :-)

we can see ourselves
our child thoughts now
with love

perhaps, we think, a "reason" to have kids
is they keep us seeing things lightheartedly...
falling down they jump right up and laugh and go on
they pull us in
to play games
and lay on the grass and look up at the clouds
watch ants for hours
building hills
marvelling at their strength and cooperation
operating as one

and they/we
pick a dandelion
for our mom
as an expression of pure love

reminding us it's not what we do,
but the love we do it with

we're (child thoughts) not in the future--
looking for the end of the rainbow
nor thinking we shouldn't be afraid

we just are
we just express our feelings
screaming, crying, jealously hitting,
loving deeply

we make lots of mistake
as naturally as we breathe
it's how we learn

the only choice is
do we laugh
or cry?

why would you fill up your dad's shoes with water?
or cut up a chair with scissors?
or try to dig a hole to the earth
through the cement floor of your basement? :-)

i give everything all the meaning it has
it all makes perfect sense to the thinker.

where the literal thinking is brought to light,
we see the non-sense--
no common sense:
if i yell at you, you'll love me
if i attack you/throw a tantrum, you'll cooperate, respect my point of view, listen to me...

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
