“If you want to know about yourself, you can’t start by asking someone who has a stake in the outcome. If you are a surfer, you go to the ocean… Whatever you ask, it will be pure.”
I seem to recall reading a forum thread where many stated that they couldn’t allow their horse to have any choice. After all, horses are large and could kill us at any minute… Oh that’s right, I still climb onto the back of one of those possible killing machines.
Anyway, the point is, what would happen if you asked your horse for his “opinion.” What would he say if you truly listened?
I don’t mean anything telepathic, but how does he behave around you if you honestly took away all the distractions, ropes, and control methods? What would your horse say about you?
Whatever the answer… it will be pure.
