'Gratitude' and 'Love' from 'Opening Doors Within' - Eileen Caddy

(1917-2006, Co-founder of the Findhorn Community)

Gratitude

Be not concerned if your beginnings into this spiritual life are small. All good things have small beginnings. The mighty oak starts from a tiny acorn. From a tiny seed the most wonderful plants and flowers spring forth. From a tiny seed of love many lives can be changed. From a tiny thought of faith and belief wonder upon wonder can come about. Little things grow into big things. Be grateful for all the little things in life; then, as they grow, you will be grateful for each and every one, and will express your gratitude in words and deeds. Let that which is within express itself without. Always remember that a grateful heard is an open heart, and it is much easier for me to work in and through an open heard. Give thanks and keep on giving thanks for everything, so I can work in and through you all the time and bring about my wonders and glories for all to see.

Divine Love

Whenever you love, love whole-heartedly and never be afraid to show your love. Let your love be like an open book that all souls can read. It is the most wonderful thing in the world, so let that divine love within you flow freely. Love is not blind, but it sees the very best in the loved one, and so it draws forth the very best. Never pick and choose whom you are going to love. Simply keep your heard open and keep the love flowing to all souls alike. It is like the sun and shines on all alike. Love should never be turned on and off like a tap. Love is never exclusive, never possessive. The more you are willing to share it, the greater it becomes. Hold on to it and you will lose it. Let it go, and it returns to you a thousand-fold and becomes a joy and a blessing to all who share in it.
