Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Count To Ten Before Doing Anything

Watch your reactions to things, to persons and to situations. Never allow yourself to become ‘prickly’ because someone has said or done something, which has gone against the grain with you and your reaction is to hit back and not to rise above it or turn the other cheek. So much stress and strain could be avoided when you cease to react negatively and can even laugh at the situation and see the light side. This is not easy when you feel you have been slighted or maligned; the little self gets hurt and huffy and reacts violently. It is usually a great help if you put into practice that advice of counting ten before doing anything. This will give you time to weigh up your reactions and do something positive instead of negative.

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.
