Guidance from Eileen Caddy

To Live the Life of the Spirit Calls for Real Courage and Determination

Face life with courage and determination and never allow anything to get you down. Learn to rise above difficulties and have dominion over them, and be not heavy hearted. Resist not evil but overcome it with good, and become strong as you overcome. Every time you overcome a difficulty you take one step up the ladder of progress along this spiritual path and every time you allow a difficulty to get the better of you and throw up your hands in despair you either take one step down or get firmly stuck in a rut until you are determined to make progress and not be a defeatist. To live the life of the Spirit calls for real courage and determination, for there will be times when you will have to stand very much alone. But this need not be done with grimness but with the real joy of the Spirit, with the knowledge that you know where you are going and nothing and no one will be able to knock you off centre, that come what may you will reach the goal in quietness and confidence and if necessary alone, but get there you will.

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.
