There’s so much talk around today about enlightened masters and gurus. It’s common knowledge that should you accept one as your individual guide, they will be sure to allow you to along with your personal development. It almost makes you’re feeling compelled to really have a teacher!
My theory is that we don’t all need teachers, but most of us have to be students. It’s humbling. And being humble may be the opening to a greater discovery.
But in my experience not only human beings are great teachers. Pets and animals are great teachers too. So might be 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 possess faith and trust, develop our leading abilities and stay committed to our vision. This happens, in my opinion, even on tough days when nothing generally seems to work a course in miracles podcast. They could teach us, such noble beings because they are, that we can love unconditionally, share freely, communicate openly and create cooperatively. To truly have the ultimate relationship with a horse there must be no hidden agendas, no limitations on love and no withholding of anything.
Now that may be tough, but we have an option in these matters. All decisions and choices we make may produce a critical impact and can make an extraordinary effect on our lives. For example, when we decide to be scared, 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 could make it up and we could pretend. You see, all beings reflect what and who we are in relationships – horses are no exception. Remember that the planet was made for us so that we might have a context within which to experience ourselves as who we really are.
It’s fundamental to realise that we are truly linked to everything and everyone. What will work for you may not be best for your horse. What’s harmful to you may not be also harmful to your horse. It’s not as possible only change your horse’s behaviour; your horse can influence you to change your own behaviour. My horse has been certainly one of my greatest teachers. When I work and play with him, my every thought, word and deed is reflected. It’s not a revolution on exactly how we assist horses that’s needed, it’s a revolution of your head that we must be having. It is our convinced that we should change.
