Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Start Right Now Giving Thanks

Keep ever on the alert, never cease to give thanks, so nothing is ever taken
 for granted. Learn to appreciate everything and voice your appreciation. Those 
two little words “thank you” mean far more than you imagine. There are so many 
things during the day to be grateful for, but unless you voice your gratitude,
 nobody knows how grateful you are. You can never show your appreciation too
 much. No one ever tires of receiving thanks. When I pour My blessings down
 upon you, when you see all around you My wonders and beauties in nature, give 
constant thanks. When you start to do this you never take anything or anyone for 
granted, but remain ever on your toes, ever alert, ever watchful, ever with your 
heart filled with love, praise and thanksgiving, and as you give thanks you find 
real joy and uplift in life.
Open your eyes and look around you and see how blessed you are, see how 
many things you have to be grateful for. It is not something
 abstract. Start right now giving thanks and never cease to do so.

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.
