I just watched The Wild Horse Redemption a doco on prisoners training wild horses using the “Horse Whisperer” technique and it is such an insight into the human condition. I really think we need a bit of “Human Whispering” applied to us to calm our fears.
So, yes I am comparing us with wild horses, especially when we get, or put ourselves into a corner.
One horse gave the trainer an almighty kick but instead of reacting aggressively he just pointed out that the horse is scared and that is why he kick out. How many times do we “kick out” because of our fears? Unfortunately most of us don’t have understanding trainers to understand our fears, but instead the people we kick out at kick back even harder. http://youtu.be/tboAHyRP1Ds
