White Horse Story of Life


Have you ever ever heard the White Horse Story? It’s a metaphor for all times, and in a nutshell, it goes like this:

A farmer and his son lived alone as a result of the spouse/mother had died. (How terrible…)

At some point an exquisite white horse confirmed up on the farm and the farmer and son acquired to maintain it. (How nice!)

Because the son was driving the white horse he fell off and broke his leg. (How terrible…)

It was a time of struggle for the village the place the son and farmer lived and the navy wanted all of the younger males to come back and combat; however as a result of the son had damaged his leg and couldn’t go, the farmer didn’t lose his son to struggle. (How nice!)

When all of the younger males acquired again from the struggle, they got nice riches which they shared with their households. However the farmer, whose son didn’t take part due to the damaged leg, acquired nothing. (How terrible…) 

And on and on it goes. Hmmm… see a sample? I don’t bear in mind after I first heard that story, however I nonetheless bear in mind the superior metaphor for all times that it’s. Life simply retains going. It’s a steady cycle of experiences – some we label “good” and a few “dangerous.” It appears, nevertheless, that generally the label is extra precisely pronounced weeks, months, and even years later.

Right here’s what I imply. Don’t you keep in mind that there have been issues that occurred to you that in the intervening time actually sucked (relationship breakup, getting laid off, sickness of you or a cherished one, you didn’t make the staff or get the promotion, a automotive accident, a cash mess up, true loss, or any of the opposite seemingly limitless occasions {that a} scenario didn’t prove the best way you needed it to)… however that later turned out fantastically (past what you thought doable) or turned an vital a part of your coronary heart’s or soul’s progress?

I feel we are able to’t afford to overlook that chance – the likelihood that the “dangerous” issues that occur – though they undoubtedly do suck within the second (let’s by no means faux they don’t!) – can and do usually prove to help in uplifting/serving to/therapeutic us indirectly.

So, right here’s an exquisite option to transfer by means of the White Horse Story that’s life. It’s additionally your provocation for the month! When one thing “good” occurs to you (as a result of it usually will!) be there with it…totally, deliciously basking in each valuable second of its goodness of it! And if one thing “dangerous” occurs to you (as a result of it generally will!) be sort to your self within the second, maintain your self gently and patiently as you enable the yucky/sucky feeling to maneuver by means of, after which… even when the “dangerous” feels prefer it’s too current or too massive to ever not be there, bear in mind the White Horse Story of Life figuring out “this too shall move.

And perhaps… simply perhaps… some nice good on your life will develop from it!

If we keep in mind that chance we’ll all get by means of the sucky “How terrible…” occasions extra gracefully and extra shortly. The Universe is type of magic that approach.
