Oh how lucky I am

This is my second week in big sky country. I truly believe that introducing horse gentling and refined animal training concepts to people can be life changing for people. Horses respond to people so sensitively. It is always apparent when our egos get in the way of progress. And the egos are from a lifetime of experiences that we have had. We may have learned that it is easier to hide than be assertive. This results in front of a horse, in a situation where we do not communicate clearly. The horse takes charge and reinforces our personal belief system. when we become clear with the horse, we begin to trust ourselves, and then the horse can trust us too. So lovely to watch the creation of true relationship. Right before my eyes. Under this heavenly sky...

Missing angels

Away for a second week. Popped home for the weekend. Sasha came for a ride while I was there. Always amazes me how animals seem to know that I am going away. She and the rest of the troupe did not leave my side all weekend)-: miss them.

Heaven is where the horses are

Doing a horse training course in Potchefstroom. Blessed to be here. As much as we will teach, I will learn from these incredible creatures and the police who work with them.

on Christmas day we took a drive to the forests of Kaapsehoop. Have wanted to see the horses forever. So great to finally be there. What a beautiful place. I want to escape the city life and disapper to a space on top of that mountain.

So much of my time has been spent lamenting about the unconsciousness of human beings on our planet.  Very often from the depths of despair as a part of the human race, I have felt unworthy of being on this planet.  The phrase eco-depression sums up where I have been.  I know many have felt the same.  To get me over it I have begun to look at life as the big picture.  The long term.  And see that it is not about me.  Life will continue.  Yes people are fools in relationship with nature, but I cannot let that be my focus. I am only able to change my own behaviour, so all I can do is live with respect for my surroundings, and probably more importantly, enjoy them.  Gratitude for the creatures that I know and the beautiful places on our planet that I enjoy.  here's to life....  visit www.penguinpromises.com.  Perhaps you will be inspired to focus on what we can do, rather than on what is wrong with the world.
It definitely makes it easier to get up in the morning.
