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...

death is a gift

the past is gone

this moment
never to come again...

(we all died in that Aurora movie theater)

born again in this moment


is a gift

laid to rest

we hold a funeral for that which never was  (where's the proof two minutes ago ever existed?)


no needs
no wants
no shoulds

these people
their souls
who no more wander
pearls and pieces
to complete themselves

the end of the search
that is not there

no wholeness
ever left

no piece
no peace
of God
ever went missing

in death
i but lay down my torch
my claim
that this is so

that anything at all
need to be different

i accept
i embrace
every speck as it is
in this moment

the end of "my" life
that needs
to be very specifically
a certain way...
to control and orchestrate every detail of existence

and who and what divine being gave "me" that supreme vision and dominion?

Lord, Lord, Lord that is far too big a job for me...the ants and the grasshoppers...what was i thinking?!

Happiness is
the death
of "me"

and so it is

death is
a gift

"until you experience death as a gift,
your work is not're either believing these childish stories
or you're questioning them--there's no other choice." Byron Katie

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
