The great vision of Black Elk

black horse merens stallion“It was dark and terrible about me, for all the winds of the world were fighting….

“Then the poor horse neighed and rolled and got up, and he was a big, shiny stallion and his mane about him like a cloud. He was the chief of all the horses; and when he snorted, it was a flash of lightning and his eyes were like the sunset star. He dashed to the west and neighed, and the west was filled with a dust of hoofs, and horses without number, came plunging from the dust. Then he dashed toward the north and neighed, and to the east and to the south….

“All the universe was silent, listening; and then the great stallion raised his voice and sang. The song he sang was this:

“My horses, prancing they are coming.
My horses, neighing they are coming;
Prancing. they are coming.
All over the universe they come.
They will dance; may you behold them.
They will dance; may you behold them.
They will dance; may you behold them.
They will dance; may you behold them.

– Black Elk (1863-1950), a medicine man of the Oglala Sioux, describing his “great vision” to John Neihardt

A huge thank you to Stormy and all the teachers in the documentary. My heart is weeping and laughing at the same time, expanding, searching, inviting, imploring and adoring this documentary of the breakthroughs in human thought about Horse. The horse humans who are heartsinging this renewed path within a loving matrix of respect and awareness and consciousness are of the new world we all wish to create.

As we begin to embody this energetic and compassionate understanding at a cellular and holographic level, I envision magnificent change in our partnership with Horse. The elegance and balance of this dance will take our breath away! Our dreams will be filled with the horse’s dreams of infinite possibility. Our days will be full with the beatuy of expressed harmony and peace. And our world will be changed…

Many of us keep reaching for the highest thoughts around this and through our daily choices in thought and deed add our life force to the blazing of this sacred pathway where two life forms have chosen Each Other.

What an honor and privilege the Horse has given us.
