Dorothy Maclean is the sole surviving co-founder of Findhorn Eco Community (read about it!). Now aged 96 she is still living in the community, and keeps actively involved.
Her communication with nature led to the growth and fame of Findhorn.
I recently read one of her books 'Messages From God', which is all about love.
So I thought I'd share some of her words of wisdom here:
Step into love and let it reign in your heart and do its miracle work.
Nothing but love can banish your ills, your gloom, your despair,
and the uneasiness that makes you ponder your actions.
Step into love, and become light and free. Pay homage to love.
Love comes first
If you put love first and do even the most ordinary things with love,
elements of wonder, openness, purpose or rightness are present.
With love the most ordinary event takes on completely different colours.
So practice love's presence all day long, whatever you do,
and every event will be lit up with hitherto unknown radiance.
When you give me your heart, a wonderful lightness, joy and harmony
pervades your whole being.
In the midst of turmoil you are shielded in an all-persuasive gentleness.
Take this gift of peace to share with those who know no peace.
The harried and distressed will respond.
