A Reason, a Season or a Lifetime

People (and horses) come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.


When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.


When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.

They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.

Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway); and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

I happened to read The Tao of Equus, by Linda Kohanov about how she came about the spirituel help from horses, especially horses who had had a rough life before she met them. She tells about ” the mystery of healing and transformation between human and horse” …And she hit my heart. I wanted so badly to expirience this whith horses.
When I decided to get a horse again after 25 years without, i fell instantly in love with this little white dotless Knabstrupper pony for sale in the other end of Denmark.
I got her to Bornholm, the danish island, way out in the Baltic Sea, and found, that she was not only moonblind – she could heartly see anything becourse she had already developed Cataract om boath eyes.
I felt very sad for her, but did never doubt that she was the very horse i wanted for the rest of my life. She is only 5 years old. I am 65, and i cannot afford sergery for her. But she is used to her condition, and even though she need a lot of time to get to know new surroundings, she feel, smell, hear and meassure them, and put this into her private GPS. She Is the sweetest little horse, and we are working our way through all it takes to get a happy and rewarding loving life together as an equipage.
I wanted something – and she called out for me through a very small picture on the net. I knew it was “her”, but not why. I feel very greatfull to get this expirience in my life.

I love your work and all the important things you want to share with us.
The best wishes for the rest of your life Marijke
from Karen in Svaneke, Bornholm, Denmark.
