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...

the squirrels still skitter

telling myself
how well i am doing
is just a cover
for a deficiency story

are you really a woman?
are you the one who is not provided for,
or the one who is provided for?

no concept can contain this

feels like life to me

no stick to,
vanished...into thin air,
no location

dis appearance of "you",
of the you-niverse

hungry for this free-ness,
having tasted the scrumptious flavor
of invisibility,
of crumbling cement,
clearing out the closet,
a clean scrape

the squirrels are still wrestling, chattering
in the background,
not in the microphone

untouched is,
kids will be kids
and a grown up does not fight this

her calm and quiet eyes remain
among the pranks
and recitation of ancient scrolls

but those eyes
are so vast

they encompass
every thing
that ever was
or is to be,
the farthest reaches,
the boundless empires
and chariots,
and not one finger is lifted
or needed
to change
one hoof beat

the stillness is impenetrable
by bullet,
or shield

no thing
has ever moved

the colors of God
are mine,
the coat of many colors
is not a shackle to my heart,
freer, bigger and clearer
than any wind
that has ever swept
this earth

oh yes,
the squirrels
do still skitter
every morning
at the break of day

and my fast remains constant,
no need to feed
what has no hunger

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
