Guidance from Eileen Caddy

There is Such Tremendous Beauty in Everything, Open Your Eyes and Look for It

Today is a new day; make it a wonderful day, a glorious day. Look around you and expand. See the beauties of nature all around you. What does it matter if it is cold! See the wonderful patterns the raindrops or the frost make on the windows. See the needles sparkling like diamonds. Look for the sun as it peeps out behind the mists throwing its golden rays over the landscape. In fact see the very best all around you and do not become enmeshed in the problems and worries. There is such tremendous beauty in everything if you open your eyes and look for it, and when you can do this you will find the problems will quickly be solved and will melt away. How easy it is to become shrivelled up and sit in a huddle bemoaning life instead of allowing yourself to expand and enjoy all the beauty that is around you. Accept what is, wrap up warmly, face what’s out there and give thanks.

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.
