When it comes to Horses there will always be learning, both in discipline and in understanding.
This truly makes us EQUESTRIANS.
There is a “knowing” inside us, a Wild Instinct that blends the world of Flesh and Spirit. This Mystical Intelligence is our Intuitive Wisdom, our Wild Mystic that leaves us free to breed with ideas dreamed of in our Hearts and our Psyche. Between these worlds we have a common Language; here we call upon Intuitive Awareness as our communication.
It is the Spirit of Mystical Wisdom that champions its believers to become Visionaries, Mystics and Myth-Breakers.
"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you, and you don’t know how or why." Albert Einstein, Physicist
When we first meet our Horse we make unspoken but meaningful Agreements. What we need from each other, what we will give to each other and what we need to overcome, forgive or create through these Agreements. We must be honestly present with ourselves and the Horse before us… we must be willing to meet on neutral ground. This is True Intimacy.
Between these worlds we have the opportunity to transform our fears and surrender our judgments, we become suspended in Possibility. We are most successful when we surrender our agenda and align with present intention before we proceed with our task at hand. When we are in Balance we are best able to achieve our desires, without damage to the relationship.
The action of Rituals help us to be more conscious of an Intention or Agreement, or perhaps the Significance of a Passage. In Ritual we use Symbols to Honor what we Value and Love or as a representation of our Desires.
Rituals acknowledge that a Change is taking place. They help to Synergize the mental with the physical... the Soul and the Tangible. Rituals remind of us of what is Sacred. They help us quiet the mind of communication and let the act of Ritual speak; while doing a Ritual we are Mindful.
The ancients lived lives of Rituals, both earthy and ethereal, they are innate within our psyche. Rituals are Prayers, they are Dreams, they are an outward confirmation to our Desires and Commitments.
