A runaway horse

I found this on the Daily Zen website:

The working of the mind seems similar to being on a runaway horse at times. Restlessly moving from one emotion, idea, or construct to another. Meditation is like reining the horse in, drawing the awareness back inside. And with practice the Return happens more and more gracefully.

-- Elana, Monkess for Daily Zen

So true.


  1. Ellie,

    The words are wonderful, I often go to the site. But that horse just sings "horse spirit." Thank you for the posting.

    Does anyone know what has happened to the Daily Zen website please? I have loved following it for several years - it has been a deep inspiration to me and I am devastated to lose it. Shirley, Kent, England
