The Call of Love

This early morning with the sun just coming up I spent a moment hugging my horse before feeding her hay. The kind of hug where her snout and head drape over my shoulder. I spoke words of appreciation and affection. I felt the weight of her neck and head sink into my shoulder. She was relaxing and we were melding. The time ended. She licked and chewed and we each went our own way.

What did not end comes to me now as I sit at our kitchen table eating breakfast, and her scent lingers on my shirt and skin. What also did not end was a beautiful moment of communion with this animal. The radiance of our time circles the globe and fuses with the grand quality of Love that baths human beings and our beautiful planet. I believe it also ferrets out old and worn out patterns of thought and feeling; these being formed by misunderstandings, amnesia and forgetfulness of the divine heritage of men and women. It’s gentle and absolute voice inspires all the substance that is locked in that matrix to Come Up Hither and Be Here Now. All is Well.

Horses have not forgotten this.

  1. Andrew –
    Thank you for this moment to dwell on the beauty of pure love – love from an animal source.
    I understand that we humans are capable of this genuine and authentic love – and as you say – we have forgotten – or it has been clouded by misunderstanding.
    I will use this moment to remind myself…. to remember, to embody this love.
    Like your sweet horse I will lean in to those that are near me and those who are at a distance. Thank you.

  2. Andrew,
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful moment with your horse and the expansive implications in this simple exchange. I am sitting in a physical place in Colorado that has 40 years of implications in my life. So much change has moved though here and still the current that was brought at least 70 years ago has not changed. I am so thankful for the current of attunement and the blessing it provides for this world.

  3. Awww, Andrew, so gorgeous! Horses are genuinely magical. My mare has lived with me for 27 years! I have nearly daily moments with her as you described. When I feed her hay at night, I often bury my face in her mane, breathe deeply and tell her how much I love her. Same for my gelding. And then there are my two golden retrievers, both certified therapy dogs working with 2nd graders learning to read. They’re amazing! I take all the love shared with my beautiful animals into my life every day, letting it magnify with the humans I’m with. Thanks for the beautiful message. Love and hugs to you and your mare. ❤️

  4. Thank you, Andrew for the continuation of inspirational dialogue here. Although I have only spent snippets of valuable time with horses, I recollect the essences of those authentic moments. As far as animals go, I have the most affinity with dogs. Presently I have two ten year old female Boston Terriers that adore playing fetch and sleeping on my bed. The companionship we share is one of loyalty and compassion. They are not neck nuzzlers as your horse, yet still provide the most pleasant nuances of security and friendship.
    This call to love, I feel as a call to remembrance of treasured moments with the Beloved. The tenderness and sensuality contained within the imagery of the connection with your horse rekindles and renews a foretold experience of our Divine heritage as men and women that you mentioned.
    The scent and caress of those becomingly vivid memories speak echoes of ancient truths into the heart, my heart, and the heart of us ALL.
    Our pets, our animals, loyal and true, remind us so genuinely, so simply, of this steadfast presence of love; agape, that of unconditional love.
    The fragrance of that love lingers in the mist of stories once held in sacredness; being released once again into a consciousness of resonant compassion for each of us to hold within the sacredness of these days.
    As I gently drape my arm about myself and touch one hand to my own heart, I am called to remember this love that permeates and penetrates into the sacredness of being. I also hear myself uttering these words of endearment: “I love you. I love you.”
    Horses have not forgotten this.
    And, we are beginning to remember…

  5. Andrew — These words speak about feelings and actions and perceptions that are so simple and immediate, and for each of us they are daily experience, in essence, in communion with an array of living forms and creatures and elements. And the substance of your words lingers on and on in me, and in us all —and in the Whirlwind it circles the globe as a Halo of Radiant Love and Blessing, calling and drawing all substance into the Ascending Way, and drawing all men and women to let go and Come, who move and fuse with the ascending current. And that which is worn out descends to a level when it can be recycled and reused and reshaped in the Whirlwind of Fire, which is the Creative Way. What an elegant process. Thank you for this beautiful writing, which shares with us all some essences of the form of your quiet morning communion. db
