Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Learn the Vital Lesson of Pinpointed Concentration

Never try to undertake too many projects for you simply waste your energy by spreading it too thinly. When you do this you are unable to do anything perfectly or wholeheartedly because when you are doing one thing your mind is on the next. This means you have not learnt the vital lesson of pinpointed concentration, which is what is essential, if you wish to create something. Stop being a butterfly, flitting from one project to the next, never completing anything, but learn the art of concentration and of creation.

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.
