During the last couple of months, the search for my next equine partner has brought so many lessons and humbling experiences. The least of which is the reminder that what I am really in search of is that special connection, that profound familiarity with someone special who in this case happens to be a horse.
One of the deepest realizations that my beloved Romeo taught me is that when two hearts become one in a unison of friendship and love, all things are possible. To be blessed with such a union is to remember that on a deep level, we are all really one source, one big beating heart.
Animals have a magical way of connecting us to this source. Perhaps this is why they touch us so deeply and affect us so greatly. It is their way of reminding us to stay true to the one source of all: Love.
