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...

i want it thus!

the open room invites the visitor,
the Gift

it's why the open road
is so much more inviting
than the traffic jam,
clogged artery

the only preparation 
is to make room,
be the child,
the student

it is not advice i need,
but silence,
the experience of silence,
(of "me" not talking)

the pause
from ranting,

prior to raucous,
prior to blacking out creation,
prior to the "news" service,
the report of the dire

prior to:
"of all that is,
i want what isn't!

i want that grain of sand!
only that one will do!"

but honey, there is a w h o l e  b e a c h . . .

"NO! i want that one!"

closed door
closed mind
closed heart
closed eyes
closed fingers
shuts out the Infinite forms of Love

and Mother simply smiles,
never worrying
for an instant
about what is not true

temporary insanity,
no wonder the wake up
is inevitable

it's not a cruel world
for goodness sake!

to want everything but what you have,
to throw away the sun, the moon, and the stars,
to throw a way the entire universe,
but for the one speck of sand you don't have
is simply the perfect plan for hell

maturity easily sees the folly,
the ridiculous,
and laughs that such a plan
could ever have been considered
and that people actually
invested everything they had
in it

there is no concern at all
for anyone
that they won't see this

for there is no way anyone could
ever really believe it
in the first place

So silly, sweetheart.
I know you don't really mean that.

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
