Guidance from Eileen Caddy

It Is Your Reaction That Is Important

Let your faith be strong and unshakable. Accept each test and trial as part of the strengthening process and learn vital and important lessons from each one instead of fighting against them and resenting them. It is your reaction to them that is important. When you are faced with a severe test, how do you react? Do you feel hard done by, persecuted and feel the whole world is against you and so become bitter and twisted, or do you try to see beyond the test and realise there is something you can learn through it, that by facing it without resentment you will be able to help another soul at some other time because of your depth of understanding and because there is no bitterness in you?

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.
