Also called The Two Paths because once you have learn something from your experience, there is a new choice to make. Will you stay with your old believe and perspective, or embrace the new? 
6. I transform

7. I am
Out of transformation you are born. Who are you? Your experiences and everything you have learned form it. It's your self image and world image based on your believes and conclusions. This is the program that runs a large part of your life subconsciously. We explore who you are through the experience you have had and want to have. We also explore your instruments such as love, feelings, emotions, body, thoughts and intuitive intelligence.
7. The Chariot
The horses pulling your chariot are your thoughts, believes, feelings and emotions. It's the program that runs you, your automatic and intentional responses and actions. These reflect your current state of being and that's what runs your life. To change your life, you transform what you have learned from your experience. A new you is born out of that process everytime again. There are two horses because life on earth always has two sides or points of view to every situation - the polarities.
