Yoga, Horses and Divinity

The world is an external manifestation of what is inside. What we see is a perception through the lens we created through thoughts, ideas, and values. We can choose to see the divine behind everything or not. The results of that decision is either to feel entirely supported or completely alone.


Why don’t we choose to live simply in the support of the Highest?  The horse above, and your pets and all the wildlife, are not bound to the dramatic news everyday, and even if they are feeling the effects of climate chaos, they don’t choose to suffer over it, but rather embrace and respond to each present moment.

I challenge you to stand where your feet are.  To exist just in awareness for a few minutes, or many, each day.  Allow whatever is there to be there with an acceptance as if the experience, whether pleasant or not, is a gift to pull you closer to your Source.  Yoga is this connection to the Source.

This is what I practice while working with horses.  Each act is an attempt to pull the horse into a deeper and more trusting relationship with me, whether the act is rewarding good behavior or redirecting something a little less desirable.  I aspire to learn from horses the humbleness of collaborating with what horses consider predators and the ability to not take offense at those less-desired behaviors, because  horses, like all beings, only do what they think they have to do to survive.
