Premiere Edition (Prima) speaking for the herd:|
I would like to share with you some horse secrets. We see the world differently. You humans talk of being superior – you have beliefs that are not true. We see the truth of how things really are; all animals do.
I will tell you ten things you believe that are false:
1. Beings are separate.
We are all one – human, plant, animal, rock – every single little quark is united in the same cosmic soup. There are spaces but no boundaries. Boundaries are only thoughts.
2. We are here to advance ourselves.
Life is not a struggle – at least not to the rest of us. You struggle; you believe there is something that you must accomplish – there is nothing to accomplish except the desired results of your desires.
3. Our desires are important
You desires are frivolous – they mean nothing in the span of being. I am referring to the larger span of multiple existence.
4. Boundaries are necessary.
Boundaries are thoughts and create limits in a limitless universe. When boundaries dissolve, opportunities expand.
5. We have one life to live.
You see life from the perspective of your ego. It is so much larger. Because you identify with a finite expression, you are blind and deaf to all that is beyond your physical senses.
6. I am the center of the universe.
Imagine being outside yourself – being absolutely everything – as far back as all time in your terms; but being everything, time spirals, loops, and meets itself again and again – all in the instant of a thought. You are that.
Everything in creation you can experience; merge with the energy of a rock, a tree, a cloud - With no boundaries you are all. You have trouble being outside yourself because you are absorbed in self.
7. I must fight to survive.
If you were to let go of your concerns for self for even a moment, the boundaries being just a thought would disappear. Then you would experience as we do.
8. I must protect myself from nature. (Build cities, walls, etc.)
You forget yourself in nature, in quiet – true quiet void of thoughts, and you remember a truth you knew long ago that has drowned in the confusion of your busy life.
9. I must create; I must achieve.
There is nothing to accomplish that hasn’t been accomplished already. You think you have a new thought, but you are just opening to mind, which as matter is infinite in its expression.
10. The world is a mess; there is nothing I can do.
In one instant you can change the world. If man were to change his mind, one mind at a time, a chain reaction (like nuclear fission) would occur. Human minds like ours are all joined – it is the belief in isolation that creates the limits. Simply let them go, and a far greater world is yours, ours and in the communion of spirit as it has always been.
That is the simple truth – you can affect your life with your thoughts, but beyond that narrow perspective you hold, nothing changes. The truth remains the same. There are two ends to the spectrum. Fear is at one end and it is false; love is at the other and it is all that is true.
The truth is we are all God. It is only humans who have separated.
“Why did humans want to separate? Why not animals?”
Perspective is the key here. From your perspective, you think that you are the different ones, the superior species – the most like God. That is the story as you have told it – it is your story. We all have a story that is our own perspective. The difference is, animals are in agreement because they have not left the garden. (the place where all walk and talk with God.)
Humans believe in a human myth. It is the story that supports separation. Animals have a knowledge of good or God. People wanted to create a perspective that would give them superiority or so they thought. ‘Let us have evil, which is the opposite of what all other life understands.’ And they have boxed themselves into a corner. They have created another category, and being the designers of their world, have made themselves a hell. The point is we all view the world from our own perspective; ‘our’ being singular or plural.
Human/Humans. Horse/Horses. The difference is humans believe in opposites; we believe in sameness. Every being sees the world through their own eyes; every species through the eyes of the species. Animals interconnect species to species, to man, and that is how we can help you. We can share our vision; we can show you paradise again.
You are the only species who have lost the connection and therefore wrongly believes that you are separate and therefore superior. Just like in a flying change, the lead is the perspective. Change your lead mid-air and change your direction. It is that simple ~ as you believe, you will experience life.
