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...

stop gap

pathway to the barn,
hand reaches for a bite,

put some thing in you,
some thing in your hand,
your mouth,
your body
to fill the gap

pathway to the barn...
except it doesn't take you Home

there is no fulfillment
at the end of this hand

there is no fulfillment 
at the end of this hand

it is the stop-gap
that but maintains
the gap

if you keep stuffing
something in your wound
it will never close up

everything you stuff in it
is but a weapon
to hold it open

a pathway to the barn,
so ancient
so childish
so familiar,
we haul our family members along,
to this dark
temporary garage

a parking space
for nought

where now
that even the barn falls short?

only this,
stop in your tracks,

be still,

perfectly still

so still
even a downy feather
drifting on the breeze
three hundred miles away
can be felt

so still
your blinking eye
is thunder

so still
every sparkle
of light
lands softly
in every point
of no space


no pathway
no barn

just Heaven

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
