Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Stop Being A Dabbler

Why not excel in everything you do? To be really good at anything you have to keep on practicing it until you have master it. Why do you imagine that you can have perfect results in this spiritual life when you only dabble in it? Stop being a dabbler and plunge in wholeheartedly. This life calls for everything you have got to make it really work, so why not give all you have got and see what happens? It is a truly wonderful and glorious life when you are willing to give yourself completely to it, but not otherwise. How can you really be happy unless you are free? No one can be happy when they are tied up with themselves and self-concern. Freedom comes from self-forgetting, from giving all and holding nothing back. I need you free, so give and give and go on giving.

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.
