Fences…understood



I did  a double- take as I walked by this camel in Israel – he wasn’t tied and he wasn’t fenced…
Though I’m no camel training expert, I guess he’d earned the “privilege” of freedom because he’d learned the boundaries by trial and error.
Same way horses do. They learn by bumping into pressure and finding release. And they choose to stay where there’s freedom. That’s self-carriage – when a horse between the aids without being held there.
But what about you and me? What makes us stay within our own boundaries? Play by the rulebook? I wonder if it’s part of the human condition to think the grass is greener on the other side,  look for loopholes, and  push the limits J
For me, I’m inclined to test the fences too.  Only an inner conviction –a belief that the best way to avoid life regrets is between some life guardrails  !
