On my high horse

I realized as I'm writing this that horses have really been showing up in my dreaming a lot lately. I suppose I see them often, wandering around the streets here munching on grass and whatnot, but I know that horses mean much more in dream space.

The dream was simple. I was riding a brown and beautiful horse. It was much taller than usual, either that or my depth perception was off. I gained lucidity just sitting on top of it, reigns in hand. I feel like I was in a procession of other people on horses going somewhere rather slowly.

I wanted to move a little faster, so I squeezed my legs together, and my horse sped up a little bit. It tried to go off the trail we were following, and I took the reins and steered it back to the trail. I was reminded of this metaphor in a book on meditation I read, that the mind is like a horse. One must sit on top of the mind, and through meditation, steer the wild horse back onto the right trail. I thought, yes, it's not so difficult is it. The mindhorse is responsive.

Then I woke up.
