shade and ego
So I take my dog for a walk, or go for a ride on my horse. And I catch myself insisting they walk where I want them to walk. Then I notice that the sand on the edge of the road is softer and that is why my horse wants to walk there. Or I see that the shade is deeper and cooler on the other side, and that is why my dog, as she pants heavily, is pulling me that way. I have been so caught up in my ego, that I am not even seeing that naturally, they know what is good for them. So I need to adjust, listen to them, and work in a partnership, rather than insist - illogically - on doing it my way!
