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 best i could do

the best i could do

what's the best you could do
with a blindfold on,
and a deafening siren
blaring in your ear
without a moment's

what's the best you could do
with your hand a vice,
in a fire
you can't escape from?

what's the best you could do
with a knife penetrating your chest?

are you starting to get it,
to understand
why someone
would drop a bomb,
while being bombed
out of their mind?

why someone would
set afire
another human being
while they are burning alive?

is it becoming clearer
that the only antidote for fire
is cool, clear water,
not more heat?

flowers do not grow
in agony

please, i beg of you,
don't ask me to stop
what i am doing
when i am covered in flames!

please, oh please,
i beg of you,

help me

put out the fire.

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
