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...

people on their path to God,
on my path to God,
trying to find my Way,
confusion of interpretation and fact.

Find a moment and look.
Blanket statements are just that.
They cover up
the facts,
the specifics,
They blind you
from reality.

Fighting for what they think is "right",
for their safety,
survival of body identity.

Each side waving
the same flag,
"I am a body."

And there is only I.
So it's up to me
to lay down my flag--
to be wrong
and say to the "other",
"you are not merely a body;
you are wise.
Speak your truth. Please.
If you would be so kind.
Enlighten me.

Thank you."

Arising to fall,
was it ever at all?

the glass house,
the broken window,
the pavement now a garden
bursting through the asphalt,

the tiniest bud of a new branch
emerging out of
the huge expanse of trunk

oh little, little one,
the marble rolling across the floor,
you know not where you go...

could it be a dent in the floor
arrests your travel?
or perhaps the tiniest pebble,
or an ant...

isn't it funny
we give ourselves titles,
and just watch
as the waves roll in
and out,
the rug is removed for cleaning...
and never returns

was it ever so,
was it was ever really so...?



How is it a good thing my foot hurt tonight
while out for a walk?
I sat down to rest
on a park bench about 10 minutes from my house
that I have never sat on before.
And while ready to sit there for awhile,
I noticed a path I've never taken (in eight years).
It opened to an amazing view.
It also gifted me with this amazing "stick".
What a joke that "label" is.

Within the city
the virgin
untouched prairie


How arrogant to think you can change nature,
subject it to a will
greater than Itself...
boasts the fly.

"I will bite you.
you are mine,
said the fly
to the limitless universe.
And it laughed and laughed and laughed.

What a treasure
this laughter is
right at the train track
with the whistles blowing,
and coal cars reaching out of sight.

What a joy
that She's always waiting
for you to simply stop.

The pristine,
unsoiled dove,
the moment you rest;
a park bench
you've walked by
every day for the last eight years (at least)
and never even noticed,
built for this moment.

The path you had no idea was there.


Look at the happy travelers
already there!

and welcoming!

It's not a new path at all.

The Space opens,
like the Red Sea,
without you.

Without you,
so much Space.

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
