I will speak now as a performance horse, and what I say can apply to many other beings. But for the sake of ease and clarity, let’s begin here.
I have been bred and raised to serve humans. It is in every gene, in every cell. This is how I was created, in a sense, by humans. So of course, I am finely tuned to do this service. If I am treated with loving care and respect, there is no limit to the beautiful connection I can have with a person and the beauty and grace with which I do my job.
At the same time, I am a highly spiritual being. I came into this body with full consciousness and when I leave it, I will be fully conscious in my next incarnation and in my essence as a spiritual being without form in between lifetimes.
My mission is to love and to be loved and to evolve in consciousness as much as I am able. Part of that evolution occurs as I spend time and work with humans. We evolve together. What people seem to not understand or grasp is that we come to you from a place of service, as servants. But we do not come to be treated as babies, as possessions, as lesser than.
