We deny who we really are. And nothing real and true can come out from any action taken from this level.
On the very basic level we are predators that forgot what being a predator means. We do not have pure actions, we do not have pure intentions and we are absolutely restless.
Restless in our personal lives, restless with doing things with our horses, restless in seeking perfection and other artificial concepts that our mind created to keep us even busier and more restless.
On the deeper level we are human beings that lost their direct connection with Nature, we do not see ourselves as a one brush-touch on the canvas of Life, we imagine we are all the brush-touches, that we are all the painting. And this leads to a very false conviction of superiority.
If we really think that we can take a horse and teach him how to move or how to balance it’s own body, we are very delusional. It’s like taking a bird and planning to teach it how to fly. It’s like blowing on the clouds and think they move because of our blowing. It’s like being a backpack that wishes to teach a person who carries it how to move…..
I am sure that many of our “training techniques” make horses laugh. Our behaviours can be highly seen only by us, because it’s us who constantly judge this process and it’s effects. And this judgement is based on what we planned to see and achieve. And if we plan, nothing true can come to us, because we are closed for everything new and real.
AND THIS IS WHY ACTING THROUGH THE BODY is so important.
I cannot really express it enough.
Really calm yourself. Have a pure intention. And let your body ACT.
Our body is always connected with the Nature in the most direct and pure way. Our body can deliver the uninterrupted and unchanged form of our intention to a horse, and through our body we can communicate with a horse in the purest way.
It doesn’t mean we have to do a lot with out body. No.
Only when we are really calm and really present we can let our body direct all our actions. Only then we can really experience that it’s Nature who links intention with it’s effect, not a human.
From such state doing very little will be very powerful.
And being very silent will mean to communicate two-ways.
