I had lunch today with a dear friend who recently lost her beautiful mare…a white Arabian who, if she had been born with a delicate horn would have looked like a Unicorn. We talked about sudden death, the loss of our equine teachers and the importance of understanding life from a spiritual perspective.
Everything has within it a spiritual teaching, a mystical meaning and an invitation to discover the true beauty of the experience. I think one of the many gifts animals bring to us is the suggestion that we look deep within our own hearts in order to understand our challenges from divine wisdom.
Could it be that animals and their intimate relationship with Spirit are here on this earth as highly intelligent beings to teach us the ways of love and acceptance?
