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...

without a tub

Without a tub,
you can't take a bath.
(yes, I know you can jump in a river or a lake
or a sink...or or or...)
Without "I need people to like me,"
I can't be hurt.
Without "I need money,"
I can't be poor.
Without "I need." (period)
I don't need.
Without a "life"/image...(as in I don't have no life),
I can't lose it.
without a past (imagination)...
no idea
without a tub,
you just can not
get IN it
(don't matter how many folk
tell you you emoticon
without "hell"
you can.not.go.there.
(no matta how many preachas
warn you of "danger")
without the thought of suffering?
what if
that monster
turn out to be a pussycat...
after all?
and you was the crazy momma
sleepwalkin' all round the neighborhood
in yo' nightie?
what if you woked up...
just now!
and clear as a bell
you hear that saxyphone,
see that starboard wave cresting in slowwww motion...
notice that sunlight sparking on the drops in the kitchen sink...
(it's mirrored in YOUR eyes, ya know)
and feel the vibration of your neighbor's phone...that gift?
the tide is in,
she's here,
for to carry you
i do not need
more than i have
in this moment
thank you
thank you

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
