In 100 Words: Don’t Let the Horse Decide

There is an old Zen story about a man riding a horse, galloping frantically down a path. His friend, who is sitting by the side of the road, calls out "Where are you going?" The man replies: "I don’t know. Ask the horse!"

We either lead our lives through the center of our existence or by simply responding to all external expectations; proactively or reactively; as a flame with its own light or as a mirror that only reflects.

Our goals when derived purely based on external expectations can become our horses. Don’t let them decide where you will go!
