“Whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should”……. Max Ehrmann
Animals have the gift of trust built into them it seems. So do we, but we forget sometimes….to allow things to unfold. Hidden within that trust, tucked into that faith which helps us believe that everything works out for the best…..is the wisdom of the ages and the key to inner peace.
When I watch my young horse Remington give me his wide-open eagerness to please; when I see him approach every person, every horse with the complete expectation that this will be the best encounter ever…..I am reminded how easy and simple it is to approach life with innocence and wonder. As I grow with him, it is my heartfelt goal to help Remington remain wide-open and trusting….for as I do this, I am also teaching myself to do the same.
We have the power, even as adults…… to be more like the animals in our lives, who are asking us daily to give up our doubts, relinquish our assumptions and join them in the joy of watching the universe unfold as it should.
