Guidance from Eileen Caddy

That is Love

You can help a soul far more by turning them within, so he learns to help 
himself and do his own seeking than by handing him the answers to all his problems 
on a silver platter. Let him do his own searching; let him stand on his own feet. It is of far greater help to a child when you let that child make its own decisions, 
even if they may not always be right, at least he will learn to grow and stand on 
his own feet instead of always relying on someone else. It is not easy to take your
 hands right off and see someone make what you feel is a wrong decision, but you
 must learn to do it to help that soul to grow. Gently take away the outer props until
 he stands straight and strong by himself seeking deep within for everything.

That is love, to love enough to help another to grow in stature by turning them
 to the source of all power, which can be found in every soul deep within.

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.
