Eileen Caddy's Daily Guidance for Tuesday 21 November
You will never know whether something works unless you try it. You will never know whether the electricity is on unless you put your hand on the switch and switch it on; you have to take some action to prove that it works. So with faith. It is useless just sitting there talking about faith if you do not live by it and if no one can see what it means to you. It is useless talking about living by faith when your security is in your bank balance, and you know you can draw on it whenever you choose to do so. It is when you have nothing and can step off the deep end and do the seemingly impossible because your faith and security are rooted and grounded in Me, that you can talk about living by faith and be a living demonstration of it. Go ahead and put your faith to the test and see what happens.

Eileen Caddy’s daily guidance was part of the bedrock the community was built on in the early days of Findhorn and the concept of inner listening is very much part of individual and community practice to this day. Her messages, from what she called ‘the still, small voice within’, are still inspirational, uplifting and powerful words of love and support.
Your unique angel for the day, and the monthly theme based on an angel quality, come from The Game of Transformation®, created by Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler at Findhorn in the 1970s. The Game has become part of the Findhorn Foundation’s culture, and many people all over the world love to choose an angel quality to overlight their day or year, or a particular project or event.
Monthly Theme for November 2017
Wisdom arises from experience, a deep heart and willingness to learn. Add your maturity and inner knowing to spiritually nourish each creative moment.
The wisdom of the inevitable is a great teacher – beginnings, endings, need to eat and sleep, the cycles of nature, our bodies as we go though life.
I am reminded of the beginning of the Serenity Prayer; ‘God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference’.
This is the task and the challenge – to know the difference.
But how? Sometimes what we can change is obvious and at other times it is masked with emotion. Cultivating an internal context for our journey means a close examination of our conditionings and attachments. Wisdom comes with experience and maturity, living our learning, allowing what is, and is, and is.
Accessing our wisdom comes though being mindfully present, doing all that we can to pay attention, using whatever we have learned, bringing the best techniques we have, the best attitude we have, the best understanding we have, and applying it right now. This evokes the deep luminous wisdom of your heart and nourishes each creative moment.
Every ancient culture has an inner group of wisdom keepers who preserve and maintain the traditions. These hidden teachings are within our mind streams, ready to reveal and enhance our understanding of the evolutional impulse, and give us certainty in these times of shaking the old from our collective perceptions.
May the Wisdom of the Ancient Ones unlock your memories and light your way home.
