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...

are you receiving the baby you've been given
right now?

completely receiving
every downy hair

not pushing it away
not comparing
not analyzing
not evaluating
not resenting
not warring

just receiving
exactly as she is

the thought
the feeling
the emotion
the sensation in your chest or stomach or throat
right now

do you see it's all ok as is?

allowed full bloom,
full expression

just try to restrain,
a thunderstorm!
for goodness sake!

no wonder there is war!
nervous breakdowns,
heart attacks

are you listening
to this baby you are raising?

the baby in man's clothes

she has waited so long
for your love,
to come out of hiding,
to be told she never did anything wrong in the first place

cruelty: to tell a three month old she should be six months old--
that the innocent perfection she is,
is off, flawed, abnormal, behind, or ahead

that her hand should not be in the cookie jar--
when, of course, it should!
why else would cookies be there?
in a world where there is no tomorrow
nor yesterday?

if you find gold on the sidewalk,
don't you pick it up?
isn't that $5 bill in the parking lot
for you?
isn't that what wet paint is for?
to stick your fingers in

crayons are for melting on lightbulbs,
screws for putting in your nose...:-)
rubber bands are for shooting
and only a rubber banded mind
would strangle off reality
for a lie.

a loving mother does not expect her baby to be
ahead of her time

deadlines are for the dead

a watched pot never boils
because you are looking
 in the wrong direction

inside, Love,
look inside--
no time
no comparison
no other

take off the armor,

tenderness is all I've ever really wanted

are you receiving completely
the baby you have been given
right  now?

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
