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...

nothing is out there

no information ever comes to the body

the body's eyes do not see

close your eyes
everyone you know is there
even those long ago dead
everything you have ever seen,
without eyes

plug your ears.
go in a soundproof room,
listen to the music, trains,
thunder, the plunk of a stone in water,
without your ears

mouth closed
no food anywhere,
taste the honey,
chocolate, mint
feel the mouth water,
the stomach secrete acids,
without any food anywhere

hands closed,
feel the sandpaper
sharp glass...feel the pain, the adrenaline
see the blood
nothing happening at all to the body

the lemon,
the broccoli,
the sea air
all while dreaming at night,
all while dreaming at day

nothing going on,
it's all remembered,
the brain
acts completely the same
whether "real"
or remembered

it's not doing it either
does not know the difference
because there is none

it's all remembered,
coming from somewhere else,
every thing you'll ever experience,
a memory,
a recalling up of a past

not happening now
just imaging
for you to re-view

until you realize
you have no real eyes

to project out
it has to be in,
nothing new,
just concepts
and pictures of concepts

no information ever
the body

we couldn't see without eyes
and hear without ears
we don't need them to do it

unless the body isn't needed

sees the body,
not the other way around

mind sees, hears, feels, tastes, smells

we've been fooled
for thousands and thousands of years

our thoughts tell us it's the eyes,
yet every night i close my eyes and see and experience exactly what i experience with eyes open
"body" reacts exactly the same

this means
the whole world
is in my mind

there is no information that comes to me from the world


be very still

when you think
you are seeing...

what kind of story am i telling...?


or baby?


there is no information that comes to the body

nothing is out there

i "see" only evidence to support/tell my story

what is it i am telling myself now?

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
