The 7th of January is Dorothy Maclean’s birthday!
One of the three Findhorn Foundation Ecovillage founders, Dorothy passed in early March last year having just celebrated her 100th birthday.
We remember her fondly and I for one believe she’s interacting still with our Community, people and organisations.
I read a jolly and poignant story about her on the subject of real belief:
She sought to embody this co-creative consciousness in even the mundane details of her life, though she (like many others) found it challenging to truly inhabit this new consciousness. One of her encounters with a mole illustrates the difficulties of learning to establish her identity in consciousness first. The mole in question began digging up her garden, so she meditated, asking the mole to leave the garden alone, and made a mole fence.
When, despite her efforts, the mole reappeared she heard in meditation: “… the mole fence as constructed is right… but it is the mortar, your belief, which crumbles. Part of you expects it not to hold up, and therefore of course it doesn’t hold up.”
Another topical thought for our times: “There is no doubt that the planet is going through a transformation where all of us are learning to recognise our wholeness. The soul is being grounded in a new way. As we bring love into all things we transform the planet into a higher vibration.”[mfn]An Interview with Dorothy MacLean, co-founder of Findhorn”.
