Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Stay Present

When you are doing the most mundane of jobs, if you can keep your mind on what you are doing, you will do the job more quickly and perfectly and to My honour and glory. But if your mind is like a butterfly, flitting from one thought to another and concentrating on nothing in particular, you may get the job done, but it will be imperfect and done half-heartedly. And over and over again I have said learn to do everything wholeheartedly no matter how ordinary or mundane a job it may be. When you learn to do this, everything you do will be done with real joy and all the grind will be taken out of it, and you see life as it really is, filled with Me, for you recognise Me in everything.

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.
