There’s so much talk around these days about enlightened masters and gurus. It’s common knowledge that if you accept one as your personal guide, they’ll be sure to assist you to along with your personal development. It almost makes you feel compelled to have a teacher!
My theory is that people don’t all need teachers, but we all have to be students. It’s humbling. And being humble could be the opening to a further discovery.
But in my experience not merely people are great teachers. Pets and animals are great teachers too. So are mountains, oceans, deserts and flowers. All life is pulsing with teaching. We should just be open and get the guidance.
Horses are healing creatures and teach us to own faith and trust, develop our leading abilities and stay committed to your vision. This happens, in my opinion what is a course in miracles, even on tough days when nothing appears to work. They are able to teach us, such noble beings as they are, that people can love unconditionally, share freely, communicate openly and create cooperatively. To truly have the ultimate relationship with a horse there has to be no hidden agendas, no limitations on love and no withholding of anything.
Now that can be tough, but we’ve a choice in these matters. All decisions and choices we make may produce a critical impact and can make a fantastic influence on our lives. For instance, if we choose to be frightened, we WILL be scared. Let’s face it, in the long run there is nothing really to be afraid of, unless we DECIDE that there is. But we are able to make it up and we are able to pretend. You see, all beings reflect what and who we’re in relationships – horses are no exception. Understand that the world was created for us so that people may have a context within which to have ourselves as who we really are.
It’s fundamental to realise that people are truly associated with everything and everyone. What is good for may very well not be good for your horse. What is bad for may very well not be also bad for your horse. It’s not that you can only change your horse’s behaviour; your horse can influence you to alter your own personal behaviour. My horse has been among my greatest teachers. When I work and play with him, my every thought, word and deed is reflected. It’s not just a revolution on how we assist horses that is needed, it’s a revolution of your brain that people should be having. It’s our convinced that we ought to change.
