Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Realise What a Tremendous Responsibility You Hold

Everyone longs for peace in the world. They long to see mankind living in peace and harmony where there is no unrest or threats of riots, strikes and war, and they long to do something to help bring this state about, but don’t know how to do it. First of all realise that this state of peace and harmony starts with the individual and there is so much each individual can do to help bring it about. Go quietly about your daily round silently blessing everyone and pouring out love to him or her. By doing this you bring peace and harmony all around you. When you go around feeling annoyed with someone, or are resentful and quarrelsome and are a troublemaker, you are helping to bring about war. Stop and consider this a moment and you will realise what a tremendous responsibility you hold in your hands, how your individual behaviour can tip the balance of the world situation. When you can really take this to heart and do something about it, you will be doing your part to bring about peace in the world.

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.
