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...

have you thanked the ground
you walk on?
the padding on your feet?
the air that's always there (we think)?

appreciation for the space
in which you move,
swing your arms,
ride your bike,
watch the geese fly

remnants of cloth,
thank God, things decompose
to compose
again and again
and again
and again...

isn't it something
what can grow out of garbage?

isn't is something
that there is no garbage?

just the stuff
imagination is made of,
and not even

can only see
the kiss,
the mercy,
the gift.

it cannot see
the interpretation
of loss
in any form

a child cries
to have the scissors
taken away,
but who is it for?

the loving parent,
the child from
harm's way

it knows toys
will never make
a man rich

bare bones
light as a feather

the naked truth
hides no "imperfection"
that it's perfection
is seen

imperfection--a joke

how can it possibly be
that the ocean
could produce a deformed wave?!

it just isn't possible

who is this joker
that would prove it so?

let me but touch
the taut string,
the knotted muscle

it is transformed
IN the touch

i am here,
you are not alone,
it can breathe once more,
it can relax,
it can start even to hum,
a very quiet hum

it starts to slacken
with this attention,
it responds

i see you,
i hear you,
i feel
your rigid stance

i am here for you

in this simple observation,
the tactile connection,
is the elimination of the gap--
the space
between myself
and my Self


but i must make contact.

to love myself
is to contact myself

are you in your list
of contacts?

do you “rate”
up there with “them”?

i worked with a woman yesterday
who could not find it in her
to want to be with herself

let me touch
even this


do not worship images;
they will fail you

not one can give you anything

what is the message
you put into the image's mouth,
hand, eyes, heart?

does she shake her fist at you
or does she embrace you
and melt all ideas of separation?

does she give you your innocence
or does she sentence you to hell?

what message do you give the world
to give to you?

that is all images are for

so you can hear,
so you can see
with perfect clarity
the belief you worship

what is it that sees?
what is it that hears?

where is it that images
appear and disappear?



no image can offer you rest
or safety

it is but an ever disappearing ghost
you chase,
an ever disappearing ghost

do not worship images;
they will fail you,
nor need you fear them...

only Home
can give you Home

and Home you will always be

If I don't do something to make money,
it won't happen.
Is it true?
It's never about money--
about making, earning, getting

It's always about Heart--
listening to
and living out of
the Fullness of your Heart

It's always about Sharing
(from) the Fullness
of Heart

Heart provides
all answers,
for you

Heart is Source,
your endless natural resource

the birthplace
of everything

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
