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...

isn't it about time the past is over?

one among them was not happy

and he said to him,
what ails thee, brother?

what place in your heart
is frozen in stone

the water
to your lover,
to your world?

tell me,
what past event
have you frozen in time,
frozen in your mind,
and carry with you

that prevents you
from kissing
every face
you would embrace?

this hardening
that let's no softness

isn't it time
the past is over?

what effort
it must take
to string along that moment
each day of your life,
to replace every present
with it

to hold it
and offer it
in place of a hand shake
to every "new" encounter

no wonder
your shoulders are tense

what a gargantuan task,

receive not
the glory before you

receive not
the dawn,
whatever the new day brings
you may not have it

hold only the night
in your mind

what a spell!
we have agreed to

experience not
your Self
without the past

never be
without the past,
your god!

what a ball and chain!

do you see
how your basket
is never empty,
has no space
to receive?

only without the past
is it possible
to see
what is

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
