Let Go of Perfection, Ease Desperation of the Mind & Become the Enjoyer
June represents the Horse archetype symbolizing power, confidence, intention and magnificent freedom. There is an invitation this month to explore your spiritual side and connect with the highest version of yourself so you are confident through any storm. The Horse is the legendary competitor shining through to be victorious.
The Horse is also the embodiment of desire and will of one’s life. Will and desire can be trigger points that can sabotage your efforts to attain the higher divine characteristics necessary to experience true freedom and become the "Enjoyer.”
In the Vedic text known as the Upanishads, the horses that pull the chariot have deeper meaning. First, the chariot is the analogy for the human soul and the horses are the representation of the senses, and the reins become the mind.
The chariot symbolizes man’s journey or quest for higher meaning. In the Katha Upanishad, chapter 3, there is a statement: “Know the self as a rider of the chariot, and the body as simply the chariot.” Know the intellect (or soul) as the charioteer, and the mind (emotions) as simply the reins.
The senses they say are the horses, and sense the objects in the path around them. The mind ( emotions) act as the reins that steer the horse. If the mind is overactive distracted by all the objects around, then we veer off our spiritual path. The idea is to let go of all the objects, perfection, and desperation of the mind so you can stay the course and become the "Enjoyer" and experience total freedom (Mukta).
