    Ok...So I got this in an email today and wanted to share it here. Hope you get something useful for yourself out of it.

    Two Horses

    Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it.

    From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing....
    Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for it.

    This alone is amazing.

    If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell.
    Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field.

    Attached to the horse's halter is a small bell.

    It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so it can follow.

    As you stand and watch these two friends,
    you'll see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse,
    and that the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk
    to where the other horse is,
    trusting that it will not be led astray.


    When the horse with the bell returns
    to the shelter of the barn each evening,
    it stops occasionally and looks back,
    making sure that the blind friend isn't too far behind to hear the bell.

    Like the owners of these two horses, Divine Spirit does not throw us away just because we are not perfect
    or because we have problems or challenges.

    The Eternal Essences dwells within, watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need.

    Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who The Eternal Spirit places in our lives.

    Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way....

    Good friends are like that... you may not always see them, but you know they are always there.

    Please listen for my bell and I'll listen for yours.
    And remember...be kinder than necessary- everyone you meet is facing some kind of challenge.

    Live simply,
    Love generously,
    Care deeply,
    Speak kindly....
    Leave the rest to The Divine Essence - The Eternal Spirit - The God/Goddezz Force

    Yes, this is an awesome piece and a reminder that at one time or another, we each are both horses.
