Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals that we feel a closeness to, encounter often, engage with, attract, and so on; have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding to us of the ‘play’ that is our current experience, and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the Quarter Horse.
Quarter Horse (Listen while you read)
Strong; this is so. Poised; indeed ‘tis true.
May I introduce myself; I am Quarter Horse. That is correct. My name is Quarter Horse. I live in many countries around the world and grace the fields of many countries. Therefore, I am known as Quarter Horse.
Why? Why am I known as Quarter Horse? I am glad that you have asked. My name originated some time ago.
It was thought that certain characteristics were better for this, and for that.
For this reason I was manipulated, by man, to appear a certain way.
This is so. Man does this. He manipulates all things to suit this purpose, or that purpose.
Does he not? Indeed he does. I am the product, therefore, of man’s manipulation. I have been contrived. This I have.
Am I concerned about this manipulation?
Yes, and no. Yes, because I was not asked. And no, because c’est la vie; I am what I am.
Do we not see this in man himself? He has contrived to be one thing, and yet he is another. We are symbolic of man’s attempts to become something.
Is this good, or is this not good?
It depends upon the manner in which it is brought about. If man’s manipulations bring about truth, than one would think that this is a good thing. If, on the other hand, man’s manipulations bring about something which is not truth, then this would have to be considered not a good thing.
Who determines that which is good, and that which is not good?
Man. Man considers his actions either good, or not good.
Who then holds the reins (no pun intended) on the standard of good, or not good?
Man. Do you get my drift? Who is there to moderate; to bring cohesion; to assess?
That’s right. There is only man. Man determines whether his actions are good, or not good.
Who is then to say what is good, and what is not good. Correct; only man.
In our eyes we simply are. We are a manipulation of man’s quest to bring about a conclusion to which they have strived.
What do we think of man’s manipulations? Thank you for asking.
We are in agreement with man’s assertions, that to create a body of certain configurations, in order to acquire a particular dimension is:-
Does it really matter what we think? Would our opinion matter? Man is going to continue to change, manipulate, create, destroy, decry all things add infinitum. It matters little what we think. We are here solely for the purpose of adding to man’s diversity of experience. It matters little.
On the other hand; our communication; our involvement; our careers have been somewhat enhanced by the manipulation of our beings. This is true. However, as with all of man’s manipulations, we are subject to a particular criterion that, once met, is similarly altered to suit another whim.
This may prove to be distressing for some. However, you asked, and we have given.
Well, my dear friends, this has been quite a journey for me. I am understanding that the Quarter horse represents man’s attempts to create as he deems satisfactory. It must be left up to each one to determine the outcome as to whether this is good, or not so good.
