Guidance from Eileen Caddy

You Must Have Vision

How can you hope to discover the new without the spirit of adventure, without being willing to step fearlessly into the unknown? Where is that pioneering spirit? How can you expect to pioneer something without taking risks, without rock-like faith and belief in what you are doing? You must have vision. No matter how fantastic or seemingly unreal and unattainable that vision may be in the eyes of man, you must have it if you are to step into the new and achieve the seemingly impossible.
Never be satisfied to swim round and round in that little pool, safe and secure. Be willing to swim out into the great wide ocean and see what that has to show you. There is always something new and something different to see and to learn that will expand your understanding and wisdom. Great wisdom and understanding is needed in the New; it is impossible to grow and expand without it.
Do not try and take these great strides into the New on your own. Let us do it together with real joy and expectation. Let there be no hanging back, waiting for someone else to make the move. When you know what you have to do, do it without hesitation, without fear and trepidation. I AM with you always.

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.
