Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Every Soul Needs Those Times Of Being Completely Alone With Me

As you sit in complete stillness, much can be revealed to you. That is why stillness is so vital, that is why it is so necessary for you to spend much time alone with Me. This is life, Life eternal to you. Never hesitate to slip away on your own. Every soul needs those times of being completely alone with Me, but you will find the majority do not like being alone. They prefer to be with others, prefer to be amongst noise, to be busy – in fact are afraid to be alone. They may make the excuse of saying they like being sociable, they like being with people, they like doing things with people, but if you were to seek deep down in their hearts you would find they are simply afraid to be left alone for any length of time. This is the state humankind has got itself into. Many do not find it easy to be alone in complete silence. They have to have some noise around them so they automatically switch on the radio to keep them company, or they sit down in a chair but are not content to be alone and still, so they switch on the television and sit and look at that when their greatest need is simply to be still and know me and to take time with Me. That is what is needed; seek it first and find it at all times.

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.
