Spiritual Director Monthly Blog by Nadine J. Smet-Weiss

ahhhhh

nadine j. smet-weiss

spiritual director

stillness

just to hear

the word

takes me

there

which is 

here

fully

if even

for a moment

for a breath

present to

life energy

exploding

into being

healing breakthrough

by nadine j. smet-weiss

once

for a

lifetime

i fought

to hold

all the pieces

together

until the struggle

became far more

than I could bear

so at long last

i surrendered

to falling apart

simply because

i could not not

it was only then

that i began

to discover

how life is born

of brokenness

beyond beneath within

nadine j. smet-weiss

step beyond

all the external noise

of the world

slip beneath

the thousands of thoughts

in your head

venture through the rhythm 

of your breath

and your heartbeat 

to the barely perceptible pulsing

source of life within

sacred space

that deep listening place

i’ll meet you there

these days

nadine j. smet-weiss

when

your

heart

breaks

and everything

goes

dark

for a moment

that feels like

forever

and you wonder

whether this

is the end

or the beginning

trust the beginning

let your heart

remain open

let life touch you

more deeply

let love flow

more fully

let the unnameable mystery

renew you

don’t miss the opening

by nadine smet-weiss, spiritual director

in these days

of shutting down

what longing

is breaking open

in you

like seed

seeking light

urging you to be

the space for

some new form

of life in the world

resilience embedded

by nadine j. smet-weiss

spiritual director

sitting here with my breath i am reminded

of the heart at the heart of each being

infinitesimal spark of light

hidden in each and every form

unfolding through the eons

becoming unending

appears to falter

mystery moves

 spark ignites

anew
