Let It Flow To You

A tale of a man whom has no plan but is content enought that the world works for him.

Have you ever noticed that the moment you stop asking the world to work for you is the precise moment that it starts to? Like a playfully stubborn horse; no matter how hard you may try to get the horse to drink, it defies you. And you know how the saying goes. “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make em drink.” It is only when you stop fighting and go about your business that nature can take its course.

“Jonny, are you telling me that I should just give up??” Not what I’m saying here. When on a (horse back) journey, your main goal is not to make your horse drink. To lead your horse to water is not your goal at all, but because you crave control, you put so much emphasis on the horse that you become fixated and then frustrated. And just because you are able to lead your horse to water, doesn’t mean the horse will drink, that’s another battle entirely. I am saying to let the horse be. Put up your tent, tend to the fire, take a rest, do whatever aids you. If the horse does not drink, so be it. Most times, after doing all that you can to ensure a smooth remainder of your journey, you’ll turn around to check on the horse, only to find it quenching its thirst.
