Living by "The Way of the Horse"

By Brent Bowyer

Kronos (linear) time is upon me. I need to write this article and pronto!

Where better to go to achieve this task than to visit with the herd and sit and listen for and be opened to experiencing Kairos (nonlinear) time; experiencing those moments that arise in the horse’s natural environment, out in the pasture amongst the stark-naked white-trunked trees, with blue skies and warm winter sunshine, while listening to the accompanying birdsong. The view of rolling hills, even with the bareness of winter upon us, display real beauty. Nothing in nature is insignificant, no matter the size, form, soul or spirit it expresses. The golden copper breast of a robin, the first of the spring birds to appear, gives rise to delight in the eye and signals hope, great hope for the future.
