Guidance from Eileen Caddy

The True Joy of Living is Found in Giving

My beloveds, give what you have to give this day freely and joyously. Give because you delight in giving, because you have a special gift to give to the whole, a unique gift. It may be simply a word of encouragement, a word of cheer, or a loving action. Your gift may be a seemingly very small gift, but who are you to judge? Give what you have to give and you will discover that the true joy of living is found in giving. Then as you give freely, expecting nothing in return, you will find your cup of happiness will be full and flowing over. Free giving is always a two-way thing. As you give so do you receive; this is the Law.

One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the "still, small voice within" and shared it with others in the community for more than 40 years until she passed away in 2006. Today we continue this tradition by printing her guidance - as relevant today as it was when she received it - in the community's weekly newsletter and by sharing it with the wider world by email.
