In the aftermath of the fires that destroyed the Main Sanctuary and the Community Centre here at Findhorn 12 April, 2021, we take solace and guidance from the following message which Co-founder Dorothy Maclean received from the Spirit of Fire….
Learn from the energy of fire. We destroy, we consume, we transform and, in the process, we bring health and warmth to life.
You are in an era of change when old ways are breaking down. Accept and move with that change in yourselves.
Let acquisitiveness, or greed or desire for power burn out in you.
In their place will arise a clear field of awareness of the whole.
Love and sharing will grow in you, as will the creative fire to find the means of expressing them.
Fire melts and tempers. Let the fire of love do the same with you.
~ The Spirit of Fire, from To Honour the Earth, messages received by Dorothy Maclean
