Guidance from Eileen Caddy

What About Doing Something About it?

It is good to see the wider picture of what is taking place, but it is also very important to realise that all starts within you. Realise that what is taking place within the individual goes out into the world and is reflected in the world situation. That is why peace of heart and mind is so essential within each one of you, why harmony and understanding and deep love should flow between you.
How easy it is to lash out at the world situation and complain about it, blaming everybody but yourself for it! It is so easy to say, ‘Why don’t they do something about it?’ What about you doing something about it? Never sit back and feel helpless and imagine that you can do nothing to help. You can help and you can start helping right now. You can start by putting your own house in order. You can smooth all these misunderstandings and really try righting these wrongs. You can expand your consciousness so that you can see things from a different and wider angle. Do it with my help. You cannot do it on your own. You will find as you do your part, you will be helping the whole. As you change your consciousness to love, peace, harmony and unity, the whole world will change.

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.
