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 gift of not being present

The Gift of not being present

"I see only the past."
'til they be smoothed over

this is a re view

mind will keep ringing your bell
as long as any thing remains
un re solved

it cannot,
will not

resist not
the painful show,

it's coming to you
for your
cleansing water

no thing
ever occurred

not once

no evil people
in your life,
any where,
at any time,
in the world

you have never been a victim

gmo's are not the problem
military industrial complex
greedy politicians
are not the problem

i am not a victim of the world i see

no thing but my own thinking
has ever upset me

now it's time to look
without your thinking

amazing grace

without this thinking machine
this greedy politician
this child abuser

 perfect stillness

your generosity is quite apparent!
your open-mindedness
your devotion

he's not supposed to be a ballerina, dear,
he's a truck driver

and when a painful image comes
there's nothing to do but thank it

what better game in town is there
than to free yourself
from self deception?

Look, Jane, look!

allow the twister to enter,
the house with the roof torn off,
the ravaged mind,
the lifeless,
the goner,
the bewitched,
the user,
they are looking for your lap--
a home
an inn
a welcome (mat)
an invite

honor these castaways
they have long been walking the world
and are so weary

just waiting for your ancient judgment
to be repealed

let the teenager enter
without a test of her virginity

she has long paid the price
for a sin that wasn't

but your personal
ordained minister,
for your redemption
and the only part of you
that has been missing all these years!

the only deprivation you
have ever experienced

wants to enter


Right Now

the past is begging
to be redeemed
by you
that your Joy
and the world
are one

the gift of not being present
to include the entire truth of
the past

not just your microscopic point of view

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
