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...

one pinstripe at a time

without judgement
on the pinstripe,
on Harvard,
or Yale,
or the high school drop out,
or heroine addict...

without judgement,
on this picture

without history,
data, based on others,
of frightened judging minds...

wouldn't you see a kindred soul?
one who loves something,
who walks,
drinks orange juice,
goes to the bathroom,
just like you,
wants to be happy
and thinks he has an idea of what that might be,
and is doing the best that he can...
given what he believes?

wouldn't you have compassion
for this version of you?
this operating system with a virus,
a default setting
of "not good enough"...

wouldn't you just like
to follow him home one night
and give him surprise love notes
under his pillow,
on the mirror in the bathroom,
on his milk in the refrigerator...?

wouldn't you love to
float into his ear
and hear
when he has the thought
"i'm not good enough"...?

and wouldn't you love to
just gather that thought all
up in your arms--
roll it up in the soiled sheets,
carry it downstairs
in the laundry basket
and leave him
this sparkling space of clarity...
that is lighter than anything
he has ever experienced...?

where he clearly hears guidance
and feels supported,
and simply can't
locate any more reasons
why not to love...?

this is
yours to give,
in this very physical world
any time you feel
"i'm not good enough"...

so dear, so real, so unaffected,
in every moment
to land you,
and ground you,
and bring you back

one pinstripe

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
