|Riding with friends on Mt. Diablo|
The horse mentor I am interviewing asked me if I had known any really special horses in my past. While reflecting, I have known several, but Jaz has been my companion, mirror, challenge, and more during the past 9 years. He is special because of what he has endured in my evolution and continues to allow me to evolve into with his extreme awareness as a horse. While I teach and train again, I sometimes find myself taking action in an old pattern. The inner disturbance from it alerts me and I have a chance to refine or change what I would do now with the current theme. He is my living laboratory.
Even though the mystic realm feels deeper, I more fully recognize the remarkable connection the horses provided for me to a deeper resonance. I now understand that we all have different contacts to this universal fabric. Mine just happens to be horses. The voice appears and often unloads "thoughts" as I experienced sitting at Pahari Baba's shrine feet. The shakti can be a bit overwhelming at times, but I am also finding that I can now ride, talk, and operate in that state.
