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...

the river, she is free

the river
she is free

in all directions at once,
yes, even backwards
in the eddies,
the swirling backwater
holding still

the leaf circling
and circling
and circling,
it seems stuck,
for a while,
yet we know
it's only a matter of time
before the rain pours
the thunder crashes
the storm resumes
to bless
this river

that all may rush forward
and cleanse these little pockets
of decaying matter,
the rocks actually budge
once in a while,
when the stream isn't but a trickle

where tiny little pebbles
are now exposed to the sunlight

the river
she is free

to be all things,
to tumble,
an shake,
and spray high into the air,
and fall,
far far below
creating waves,
and hitting bottom,
in quiet clear pools

the mist in the morning
the frost of winter
the steam in August

us free

the river
she is free

to hurry
or be lazy

but always
a river

she is free

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
