Several years ago I put up a site entitled “Write Miracles.” At the time, I wanted a place to collect my writing about writing and possibly do some teaching or mentoring or something along those lines. Why not?
well, it sort of puttered along. I tend to start an awful lot of writing projects and see only a few to any kind of fruition. It’s not a flaw and it’s not a problem. It’s just part of the process for me. So the site languished, more or less.
In the meantime, I was hard at work here at this site, writing about Jesus and A Course in Miracles and David Bohm and whatever else came to mind. One day it occurred to me that my write miracles posts really belonged here. It’s hard to justify or explain, but they were part of this family of writing. They were this project.
It was time to bring them home.
And so I did. And so this has become the new repository for my thoughts on a spiritual approach to writing. It’s a heady term – full of itself, to be sure – and yet it has to suffice. Working out a spiritual path – not only the path itself, but the direction, and the method by which one stumbles along it – are all intimately related to the written word.
I write. And through that writing, make sense of God and love and truth and the nature of reality and so forth. It doesn’t always work that way but more often than not I’m able to heft a little light. Writing doesn’t answer problems so much as make the next step clear. I’m grateful for that.
If you are a writer – or yearn to be – secretly or otherwise – I hope you will find these posts edifying some how. I hope they are comforting if you are in need of comfort and provocative if what you need is getting your cage rattled. I’m here, as always, and I’m glad that you’re here too.
