Empathic teaching

these most touching images of horses who go in a situation to save other horses for me describe the need for empathy. when you want to help somebody the right answer is often not the solution. it is also about the process. somebody needs to see what is the right way out. so if you truly want to help somebody, go in, make contact with their pain and lead them the way out. then they will follow you. the dutch writer harry mulisch wanted to show these images on his funeral. only now i understand that harry also was one of these saving horses, who was trying to save the other horses by means of his literature.
