Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Be Very Still So Nothing Can Disturb That Inner Peace

Be very calm, be very still so nothing can disturb that inner peace. When you are in a rough sea and you see a huge wave coming towards you, you know you will be buffeted about and have the breath knocked out of you if you remain in its way but if you dive under it you can hear it roaring above you on its way; it does not affect you and you come out on the other side of it with a sense of achievement, completely unaffected and with a real sense of triumph. So with this life: all around you there are high waves which as they come towards you appear quite terrifying. If you let them hit you, you are knocked down and become helpless in the clutch of their power, but if you quickly and quietly dive within you will find all is peace and stillness and the waves of chaos and confusion can pass over your head leaving you unaffected.

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.
