My Horse Doesn’t…

24 Sep

My horse doesn’t:

  • care what others think of him.
  • try to call attention to his work.
  • give a thought to anything but acting in the moment.

During the next six months to a year I shall endeavor to become more like him. Because he doesn’t make a whole lot of money, my horse, I imagine I won’t either. Yet he somehow always manages to have what he needs. I believe I will too.

My horse is:

  • satisfied.
  • expressive.
  • natural.
  • unaffected.
  • at ease in an uneasy world.

He’s also completely uncowed by modern lifestyles and choices. He doesn’t listen to news. He doesn’t watch television or go to movies. He meditates. He runs, kicks up his heels when the notion strikes him. He doesn’t compare himself to other horses.
