This is a super little book by Eileen Caddy, that contains a message for each day of the year. Sometimes our minds are clouded with so many thoughts that we can’t see the wood for the trees. It can help to have a guide to hand to point us in the direction of rest/relaxation/meditation/taking a few moments out.
Here is an exert from today’s –
Learn to be very flexible and adaptable. At the same time, always work from a stable inner knowing, so that you are not influenced by or dependent upon outer circumstances and conditions. Realise that your outer life and living are a reflection of your inner life. When you are at peace within, you radiate peace without, for when your heart is overflowing with love, you cannot help but reflect and radiate that love all around you. You cannot hide that which is deep with you, for your outer state is a mirror of your inner state. The time you spend in peace and stillness is never wasted. It is necessary for every soul to find time to be still and reflect on that which is deep within, on the things that matter in life, that make your life what it is… It matters not how busy your day may be. Those times of stillness are essential and are the very backbone of your life.
