We no longer have large amounts of wild horses, or anything wild for that matter, we catch, cage and use everything in this world and claim it as ours. Besides the entertainment, meat, fur and valued goods from beautiful creatures we take, I also believe we do this because they are wild, and we are scared of what is free. Freedom scares people, and just like these animals, humans are chained as well. Our happiness and freedom are no longer priority, even though some countries are known for their “freedom” what that really means is we are known for our delusional ideas of what freedom is, and we make sure we keep people in line in a way that makes them believe they are free.
Government- Here is a good job, a nice car, a house and some tax money back in your pocket… you are free! You should be grateful
The people- Yay freedom! Lets travel where we want, live off grid, buy land and do whatever we want on it.
Government- Sorry you can’t do that.
Get my point?
To us, money, and things we can buy in a store are what freedom is. Being able to work and buy stuff. But we still cannot buy our happiness, that must be earned through letting go of everything we have learned growing up and breaking free of what society claims to make you happy. Just like the wild horses, we are chained by our own belongings, by our loved ones, by our jobs and lives, and even by our selves.
It is more important than ever to realize what is holding you back, what are your dreams? your passions and your adventures you have been wanting to live? Why are you letting them go so easily? What is scaring you and keeping you from these things? Everything is possible! I cannot say this enough. We are forced into thinking we cannot do amazing things from child birth, we are told to get a good job and find someone to settle down with. But as soon as someone breaks free and lives in a tent, surfs all day and loves their life, they are called misfits, rebels and homeless. All negative things to most people, but to me, those words are something of beauty and freedom.
Being called a rebel, or a misfit, or any other number of things means that I’ve succeeded in scaring others because I gave up what everything things should make me happy, for something that actually does. Now living in a tent and surfing all day may not be everyones idea of happiness, but I’m pretty sure you get my idea.
Control and power is everything, just like horses, we no longer have many choices to just wander and run and enjoy life without consequences. When you have a wild soul, people try and tame you, they try and console you and figure out what is wrong with you for acting like that. My friends, we should be the ones counseling them. Do not let anyone control you, run free, break standards, love this life that is given to you. Love others and be kind, and most importantly be kind to and love yourself.
Be free my wild horses,
reach for the light and never back down.
embrace your quirks , your love, your beauty
and your peace.
I wish you all happiness and the strength
to follow your dreams.
