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...

you cannot fool the heart

you hold so proud
your tomahawk

you have convinced yourself its true

the warrior
all feathered up

the drums a beat to fuel

yet wings are not opened here

only bound,
when feet are glued
to ground

you cannot fool the heart
at all

you cannot fool the heart

the grids in books accounting numbers
and days and years and hours
and pounds and stocks and bondings
in every inch

i cannot grow

i leap to climb out of this map

my wings to stretch and flare

to push off this ground,
leap from this nest

where only nestlings worry

there is a place
above this nest

that wings are given to carry

your tomahawk
is old
and weak
and too heavy for this flight

lay down
your coffin
in battle is

you feathers stolen from other birds

your own wings
are in your pocket

fly on
fly on

fly on!

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
