Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Be Filled With My Love, My Light and My Wisdom

Be very still and listen. I ask for nothing more, for when you become still, you become emptied of all that would clutter you up, emptied of all the old and you are ready to be refilled with the new. As long as you are straining and striving you are not free, you are not empty, there is no room for the new to enter. You cannot put new wine in old bottles; you cannot put an old piece of cloth on a new garment any more than you can expect to be filled with the new while you are still clinging on to the old. In absolute peace and stillness you can become emptied of everything at the beginning of each day, letting go of all that happened yesterday, having no personal desires for the day but a complete openness and freedom, you become an empty vessel waiting to be filled with My Love, My Light and My Wisdom.

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.
