“I believe that there are times when certain ideas or impulses flow in thought currents around the world. It’s what Jung called “synchronicity” or the Buddhists call “auspicious coincidence”. For me, it’s a tap on the shoulder by the universe, calling me to pay attention to something unseen but meaningful.” – Victoria Cummings

“One of the most striking things about Horse is a dignity that is impossible to diminish. Even pulling a plow or bearing the meanest burden, Horse maintains a noble bearing. Horse has shouldered his burdens without surrendering his essential nature. Even after his thousands of years of servitude when let loose to run wild Horse becomes in a very short time the untamed spirit he was destined to be. Perhaps this is Horse’s greatest medicine, the knowledge that no matter what we have borne in the past, there always exists in us the waiting seed of our true selves. Horse shows us how to carry our burdens with ease and with dignity, but more importantly, he shows us that we are always and forever free.”

“Perhaps the real meaning of synchronicity is more universal than personal, with every instance simply pointing to the possibility of a hidden pattern underlying the events of this world….Synchronicity is always an experience of the unknown…. a reminder to wake up and pay attention, because the mystery of the heart of life can speak to you at any time.”  –  Rachel Naomi Remen

    I just finished Spirit Horses by Alan Evans, about the mustangs on the Wind River Res.

      Thank you so much, Sandy. Wyatt Webb’s “It’s not about the horse” is a good one too. :^)
