Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Never Be Afraid Of The Unknown, The Unseen

The old must die so the new may live and increase and multiply. When a potato is planted the old potato rots and withers away so more and more potatoes can be brought forth. When a grain of corn is planted in the ground the original seed disappears so the new can spring forth in greater profusion: so with man. The old must be surrendered and die so the new may spring forth in all its glory. Therefore never resist change. Accept it as a vitally important process of life. Never be satisfied to sit around and vegetate, content with old ways, old forms. There is so much in life waiting for you when you learn to let go of all the old and move forward into the glorious new. Never be afraid of the unknown, the unseen. Simply know that as you move forward into it, it is going to be wonderful. Expect the very best to come out of it and it will. So many of you have sat around dreading what tomorrow may bring instead of enjoying to the full what this moment has in store for you. Cease worrying about the tomorrow; today is what matters, what you do right now in this moment of time.

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.
