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...

mirrors don't breathe

you cannot change the reflection
in the mirror

the only way to see
anything different
is to look inward
to the Source

here is the only Sanity to be found

the mirror can never reflect
two versions of yourself

beCause there are not two versions

the reflection cannot be separate from its Source

the reflection has no separate existence

to mistake yourself for the reflection
is to temporarily lose your Self

the reflection has no life of its own
it cannot see
has no dimension
was never born and cannot die
cannot feel pain or love
it cannot fail or succeed

be not fooled by an image--
you are not the image

Alice in the looking glass,
Lost in space,
cut off from Source...

unable to communicate,
to make a sound even,
to breathe
or love,
completely superficial--cardboard cutout
to come out of the glass

where you are not

you cannot return
to What You Have Never Left

you can wake up
from a nightmare, though

Psycho is a movie.
You are not in it,
you are watching it.
You cannot BE hurt.

Just try to kill a reflection...
let me know how it goes  :-)

and has that reflection EVER
spoken first?
Has she ever even made a sound?

What would you be
without that reflection in the mirror?

What would you be without any image of yourself?

you will never ever be the reflection in the mirror

Look in, dear One, in,
where all safety
all sanity

mirrors don't even breathe,
just notice...

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
