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...

have you noticed?

have you noticed
the beauty of the clouds
never diminishes,
the sparkling lake,
the most beautiful scenery you've ever encountered,
the deepest your heart has ever been moved,
the most intimate moment,
never changes,
never leaves
even for an instant...

while you pout,
and ruminate,
and fantasize
someone betrayed you,
wronged you,
irritated you,
didn't act out your dictation?

do you see
how the lichen still grows,
the tropical fish are still technicolor,
the lilacs are heavy with sugar in your nose?

do you see
how amazing cars
still operate perfectly
to carry you
to the dance?

and millions of people all over the world
are working
while you are play
to offer gasoline to you
at your convenience?

a pump on the corner,
coming all the way from Saudi Arabia
and i lift no finger,
but to put a few dollars
in the slot

trucks and planes and pipes and wells,
and endless cooperation and
paychecks exchanged and coordinated
all so i
can go
 to the dance
in this moment

oh oh oh

while i imagine
a picture 
of what isn't

and cry

who would i be...

without the thought
"loss is possible"?

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
