“Introspection”

The Great Bear lifted his head and gazed at the vast space that dwelt within.
This time he felt that he would walk alone, that was a mistake as to really walk alone he became aware of nothing.
Nothing clung to him like a bad odour, feeding off of his own self that could not cope with the space, left by the contact with others.
It hurt him, oh how it hurt, to not feel the presence of other beings on his soul.
It was good to be able to feel this way, and experience the utter desolation that pervaded even to his projected limits.
To be able to feel this and still know that it was self inflicted as a choice to experience, made it easier for him to feel.

Wait he thought, what of those who felt this way and could not know of an end to this state of being.

He shuddered to his very soul; it was without a doubt the end of all things, to truly walk alone.
Here he was being so stupid, as to think that he could even want to experience being alone.
This let him realise that it was not good to dwell on such bleak things.
I will talk of a light that comes from the soul he thought.
There was a light that pushed out from his very being it was as a guide and it was steady.
There it was the very heart of him, glowing as it had for all his days, with the memories of others attached to its glow, bringing love to his very inner self.
There was no way that he could walk alone in this existence, as for all time there he was, and someone. It pleased him to feel so, and the two states were like chalk is to cheese in their separation.
This someone whom he could lean on in harder days, the same someone he could ask the earth of, and know it would be given.
Not always though, that he could see how it had been given, at the time, but usually if he asked for the earth. It would make him realise that he had it already. It would open his eyes with the knowing, even sometimes a little later.
Then his someone would show him the way.
The Great Bear thought on the things that he had learned from these two states.
Then with his usual inward smile, agreed with his own soul, that to be with someone in the light was the only place to be.
He turned and walked toward the rising sun.

Part 2

Healing

The great Bear wondered at the questions that bothered the minds of us as we travelled on.
What of healing and its energy, was one of the thoughts that abounded throughout the realm.
He captured the thought and with his memories quietly related the ways of old when in spirit form.
As healing was a self process that in spirit was a learning that was attained by all as they reached for the higher levels.
The spirit had to be healed of all the misgivings and lack of trust and many impurities that held it at certain levels of being.
This in spirit was the accumulation of life experiences and spiritual realisations, as the spirit became older and moved through the levels of awareness.
The light of completion would be the goal, and the journey much lighter on the spirit, as it became complete.
We are unaware of these things until our time here is over, and our spiritual journey resumes in its proper form.
Now to the healing of our life form as we make this earthly journey, this is very different and the energies used can come to us in many forms.
The great Bear smiled, as he did, in the thoughts of our struggle to come to grips with the things that afflicted us on our pathway here, in this short journey we called life.
There are several things to take into account he thought, there are many lessons that come to us as we journey along, and many of them in both receiving, and giving.
Take the form of the sicknesses of our earthly form. The final one is the passing over from this life, as we are, to the spirit level.
This he pondered was one of the most true lessons that there was to have, as it portrayed to all an end to a period, and the passing over to the spirit realm in the instance of time
To the one passing over, it can be a feeling of all things from surprise to fear, and of acceptance, and in a lot of cases a relief from the final struggle with this earthly journey.
Even then the great bear thought there was a struggle of the acceptance of moving from one state to another.
The time although instant in most cases seemed to be a little of the eternity we hold so dear in spirit terms. Now he thought to the healing here of others, and the healing accepted as we journey on.

We must learn that to be ill, or out of step as it were with the normal daily things, will be to most people a burden, but here we can learn of the people around us, and how they treat their companions.

Also we can learn that within our own thoughts and ways, of how we ourselves have learned of how to accept, that things can be done by others for each of us, without the need for reward.

As these things are done as one to another in love of all things, namely one spirit to another, with just the thought that you need something, and there are many that give on this level without having to have a reason.

These people that give without thinking of other things are the richest people in spirit, and are sometimes in our earthly form can be called Angels by us here, this may be true, as their reward is not thought of as they journey on, but they are of a level that to do so is natural to their spirit.

To send out healing from one person across the miles to a stranger may seem to many of us a strange thing to do, but as all things, the thought that we send will be there as you send it.

The awareness of being a part of something purely for the purpose of healing is all that is needed; the door is open for the energy to flow.

Contact for healing is not necessary and usually is more appreciated by the person receiving it, there are various levels that healing appears on and is according to the level of the spirit that is giving it.

Heed to the wisdom held within your own spirit as you journey on, never underestimate the things you are capable of, for you can give to others an endless energy by the focus of your spirit in truth and love of all things.

Then go with those you meet and talk with, and those you are aware of and do these things with love, and an understanding that it is to the good of others that we strive for on this our journeys.

If all creatures were to do this in life and in spirit form, then the final joining would take place and perfection would be everything.

To seek a reason for healing achieves nothing, just be, and do, then all things will be within the light, but make sure that you remember that you need to be healed also.

The Great Bear, turned and returned to his ways to think of other things.

Solitude part 3

Solitude

The Great Bear felt to be alone within himself, to enjoy his own being. The light came into his eyes from within that he could now see the real reason for the ways of the universe.

The light crowded his mind so that it ached to be free and wander Then the realisation that it was the spirit that was with the light that made the inner journey begin.

The spirit became a neutral being in that it held no ground but purity with its energy, where it flew on into the now, taking with it the reason of being forever.

To feel around in such a gentle way was a new beginning to the journey that reached out to perfection.

The great Bear shook his mighty head as if to clear his mind but to no avail, as his mind was with the spirit.

To look within my own ways, and see the light there; was a lifetime in its being.

Where all things were in balance with the spirit and the beginning of the joining was about the frame.

It is confusing even to the Great Bear, as he balanced the things that had passed in his ways, with the things that were to be reckoned with forever.

How to be in spirit within himself, and to conceive the troubles of the physical form, where the spirit was forever.

This seemed in itself a task that a mere being was not capable. What am I doing to be so? in looking he felt the vastness of spirit.

It is to find my purpose, and where to look was the feeling that pulsed within his ways.

“Find me” it cried in a gentle voice within his soul.
Find me and be at peace with all you do from this now.

The Great Bear cleared his mind of all things, and found there in the silence of a beginning, was a spirit so strong that it could build the universe by just thinking of its creation.

What of now it came to him in gentle waves? What of now?

That we try to manage things; that are sometimes, to obscure to the mind to be real, in that they are a task; that only the Angels would take on.

In his solitude the Bear could learn of all things and be true to himself.

“Change” Part 4

The Great Bear reflected on the changes gone through during the Earthly journey.

Starting out with the purity of Spirit and the unconditional love for everything; seen or heard.

There seemed to be a question there, as to a reaction within a new young traveller, wherever there was a being in a physical form, bringing with it a reason of fear of some things.

It he mused, was the fleeting memories reflecting the before times and the ability to still commune with the Spirit world.

Maybe he smiled “that was why as you grew very old, you became as a child”. The memories of the Spirit World most times fade and become dormant as he reflected they might cause a conflict.

Most of the children have a Spirit friend in the early years who, becomes less of an influence as they join the world of many emotions and material dreams.

The Great Bear smiled as he did when he made light of a futile gesture.

The eternity of material things as a shadow cast by the setting sun large but lasting but a fleeting moment.
The Great bear remembered the youth both girl and boy, confusion in learning and racing to reach a goal that for most could only be a dream.

It is good he reflected that most of the young as they journeyed would not rebel but would let themselves find their own level in attainment.

The enforced Spiritual side in youth in these days is mostly forgotten.
Long gone are the days of reciting endless words that lost their meaning over the ages.

The Great bear would smile as a youth struggled to come to grips with reality amongst his or her daily thoughts.
This youthful age seemed to go on forever, if only they knew he thought that these were glorious days.

Of later days the Great Bear had many views, as their variety was infinity itself. To settle down, to use the learning, that increased the material things around you.
They are mine you could feel them cry. They are mine!

This is the time of change and when harsh lessons are learnt, no longer is there someone to hold you, or be held by.
It’s as if a loneliness creeps in, where the things you are to do are yours alone.
To walk in truth and knowledge and an understanding of your own Spirit, seems to be a continuous battle. Some people find this journey a good time whilst the others flounder about.

To find your Spirit at an early age is a blessing, it guides you through all things, good or otherwise.

Trials of life can be accepted knowing that if only good, and love is given, then the pathway will seem lighter.

The Great bear could only feel a profound deepness for those that had hard lessons to learn, and had not found their own true self.
It is a shame he felt that the finding of one’s own being seemed so hard and that they had not been taught to do so.

The Great bear did not dwell on the changes within the middle times, but carried on to look at the aged, who shuffled about the Earth in all guises of human frailty.

Some of the bodies that had become so frail, that it became a hard journey, as they were lost in the chasms of their own doing.
Had they grasped the reasons for their being and nurtured their own Spirit they would walk in perfection.

The Great Bear’s eyes clouded and he seemed to cry, as if in acknowledging that so many Spirits become bogged down in their hurry to find fault outside of their being.
The Great Bear was joyous of seeing the few who could have walked with him if only they could be in both places at one time, as he was.

The final changes, the Great Bear pondered, was in reality a beautiful thing to behold.

Where the releasing of the true Spirit that once again would take its rightful place within its own heaven, to be once again pure and to be more, wise.

To join the continuous cycle of reaching for the purest form, that would be Alpha and Omega.
The Great Bear could only bow his mighty head, and let the tears of his acceptance, roll slowly down his face.
He would be forever in awe of this his World.

“Communication With Spirit” Part 5

The Great bear spent many an hour with his Indian friend talking as they did without our cumbersome words; images flowed between the two Spiritual friends. however friendship was not a point, a continuous love of each other’s Spirit held them both above the realms of friendship.

This was their way, and as we here use words to communicate they used the universal language of Spirit-to-Spirit flow.
The Great Bear talked of the way the Earth people on their journey would communicate with the spirit world.

In the young, as they had not been away from the Spirit world for any length of time, talking to spirit was easier, and acceptance of spirit was easier and they had little memory of how they did it, or why. It was a part of their spirit still touching the spirit world.

At this time the young ones could just chatter to the spirit world, with little realisation of the beautiful thing they were doing.

The growing years would gradually move their thoughts onto earthly things and the communication would flicker as a candle being caught in a draft.

Some of the young ones the Great Bear reflected to his friend would hold the link with the spirit world always, as if they had access to a secret garden.

The Indian smiled at his friend, smiled and recalled that as a guide; sometimes he would have to draw very near to his earthly companion to make things clearer.

He laughed as he realised that the Great Bear, as a teacher, to be an earth guide was a thing that he no longer did, but as was his way within the scheme of things, he belonged, and was a part of all things.

The Great Bear told of the need for training and teaching, that would be needed to keep the young in contact with the spirit world, or as near to it as possible.
As he knew that the journey they were doing on the earth plain still had to be completed and the tasks carried out, as this was the way to the perfection all strove for.

The Great Bear talked of the communicators as they journeyed on the earth plain, even with their open skills of being able to communicate freely, they still had to carry on with the life tasks and some, would even question, “Why me”?
“Why do I have to go through so much trouble, when I am closer to spirit than most of my travelling companions.”
The Great Bear put on a kind of knowing smile and just said that the reward for the deed was great.
They also had to progress to the higher levels, not often would the higher level spirit forms return, most would become part of a group spirit where the single learning was part of the whole, here sometimes there would be a little problem of being in two places at the same time.

By belonging to a group, and being on the earth plain with the use of communication.
It would sometimes feel as if you were two persons. If the link to their previous position was so very apparent, then it would be a kind of perfection, but as the Great Bear said it was a time for learning to be on the earth plain and the perfection was a step away.

Perfection would eclipse the light of a thousand suns and is celebrated throughout the spirit world.

The Great Bears companion related that he was what the earth beings would call lucky, that the Great Bears level of being was usually above their recall, at this the Great Bear laughed and said to him “I am but a thought away”.

It is sad he said, but we can only hope that the flow between the earth plain and the spirit world becomes better and more free
.
The Great bears companion became as a fleeting mirage made of crystals and rainbows, and bidding his great friend love as was eternal, he thanked him for the brief encounter, fading into the vastness of the spirit world.

As if not to be outdone by his companion the Great Bear shimmered pure love and eternal beauty, as he expanded into the spirit realms once again, leaving behind the eternal message of “I am but a thought away”.


Death and Rebirth Part 6

The Great Bear rested alone in the forest, a place, though not needed to his spirit, it was where he could always wrap himself in beauty and peace.

He would enjoy the trees where the light played hide and seek all day, as the leaves sailed with the gentle breezes. It was a world that as he thought of it, would be there to enhance his thoughts, part of the earth plain he loved so much.

A place of long gone memories, constructed from the ages of being, and ages of changing from one state to another as he journey toward perfection.

Now all the Great Bear had to do was to hold a thought to have peace within his ways, and memories of bygone days that would make the rest, as if a film set, but made up of perfection.

A leaf that fell through his vision held his attention, as it had in its present state become detached from the great tree that had given it birth. In this state, to those that walked the earth plain, they would deem it dead.
The Great Bear smiled, as he perceived their absolutes.

One is born, then one lives, then one dies, and the death is the simple end to their thoughts on the ways of things.

The Great Bear reflected on the true state of being.
Where the trials of human life, as it is perceived by those that know of only an end to all things was just a life.
The Great Bear’s true state, as he had been for so long a time, a spirit being.
In having reached out so many times, to complete the cycle of living and learning, smiled at that thought.
He had now become a true spirit of the higher levels, choosing at this time to be a Great Bear, in recalling things, and journeying on through his own ways, talking of the ways of our own journeys here on the earth plain.

The Great Bear even in this present state of being was still learning and seeking the absolute perfection.

He could now recall, as the leaf fell through his field of vision, that each death was just a change of state, for a being that had walked the earth.

As death, as the human cycle calls it, changes the state of existence on the earth plain to the eternal existence of the spirit world. It can be a great shock to realise that a door has opened and there you are bare of all things material things.

The Great Bear had to smile as it was a strange thing to perceive, let alone explain a state that is pure, where you are once again totally responsible for sorting out your spiritual being, then to realise the wisdom gained by the visit to the earth plain.

Judgment day the Great Bear smiled as it jogged a memory of what was a spiritually youthful worry.

The thought to be judged by one’s peers; ”NO” this was not the case, it was not needed he thought, as this was the real spirit world, where you and you alone were responsible for your own spiritual being.

To judge the things you had done, so that the continuation of your being could be steered toward the perfection we all strive for.

Death is but a return to spirit, where you will then be in love and truth of all things.

It is then that to find a space in the things you have already learned, or a piece of knowledge missing, that a return to the earth plain may be needed.

This continuous reaching out for all things is the road to perfection, and that time in spirit, has no grip on beings, as it does here on the earth plain, then the journeys are but a thought away.

The Great Bear thought of his Indian companion and there he was walking toward him “Greetings my friend he smiled”. “Do you wish me to make a point within those thoughts of yours,?”

He laughed. As you are aware of all my ways as a guide to those that take the journey to learn, then you know old one that I am with them throughout their journey on the earth plain for as long as they are there.

To me, choosing to be a Spirit Guide is but a moment in time, and as you know time is only that space we conceive it to be.
To be born on the earth plain, is to many as a golden path where all things can be learnt of.

The memory fades for them as they return to face the material pathway.
It is hard, if only they were more aware that our help and guidance is but a thought away.

The Great Bear walked with his friend to the edge of the forest, which flowed in their way of moving.

There before them was their joining of the Spirit world with the Earth plain. There sailing overhead as always, with the eyes that see all, was the Great Eagle.
Another of his companions.

He called to them across the splendour, “Love to you my fellow travellers, may you have the things you need, and the eternal love to you and all things”

The Great Bear reached out with love, touching the Eagle as he did his Indian friend.
They journeyed on.

“Transformation” Part 7

The Great Bear shimmered, as the heat of the day on the desert road, not seeming to be able to grip a form of being himself.
It is nearly time he thought, that to return from this earthly journey, to become one with his group of beings, that we deem to call spirit forms.

To once again become part of the higher life he thought that most can only dream of, for as we journey on this earth plain theses things are hidden from us as it would cause a quandary as to where the true being was.
The Great Bear stabilised and called to his Eagle friend, talk with me oh wanderer of the skies, talk to me of what you are and how we are so different but the same.

The great bird closed its wings and settled on a small rock next to the Great Bear, what are we to talk of today oh great one, he asked, that those that walk the earth may be more enlightened.
I was letting my thoughts fly with the way we change over all the times of our travel he said. How we are moved from one state to the next in a twinkling of an eye.
Not my eyes old wise one, the eagle said, as you know they can see far more things than most.
” Why are you in the form of an eagle”, the Great Bear asked, and for me to appear to walk as the Earth children do.
What a question that you know the answer to, the great Eagle screamed at him, for appearing to be forgetful of his state and the reason for being so.

We choose to be as we are, you know that old great one, for you it is but a thought to be a bear, that wanders amongst those that walk the earth, learning of their ways and watching over the things that they do.

For me the same, I choose to fly with the wind as a thought that I am able to see all things as you do, it is but a choice. It is a progressive thing that as we both know the more we become aware of our own being.

The nearer to that beautiful state of perfection we become, the easier it is for us to change from one state to the next.

To those that are on the lower levels of being it is harder for them to change from one state to the next, as their memory of being is not clear in their thoughts, or is hidden from them.
This is so that they can carry out the tasks that they themselves have chosen for the enrichment of their spirit forms.
It is hard to talk of these things as they are but a change that we can pass through so easily.

The ones that choose to walk on the earth plain in the infancy of their learning it is very hard indeed, without the knowledge of all the things that they themselves have asked to be tested with.
To walk on the earth plain and learn the lessons of a spiritual being is one of the hardest things that we are asked to do, but it is the only way that they can progress and move on to the higher levels of being.
On reflection the Great Bear said, it was a long time ago as yesterday, the things I had to learn that were hidden from me were many, but as you know my friend it was a beautiful pathway we walked, to arrive here where we are now.
The Eagle rose up, with its wings flowing with its thoughts across the heavens, the Great Bear smiled and sent his love to the great bird as he received the love of his friend, have we told enough of our changes to those that have to journey on, he cried.

There is never enough knowledge of what is expected of us the Great Bear replied as he moved across the land, to watch some more.

“Astral Travel” Part 8

The Great Bear had walked slowly out into the open fields, where he enjoyed walking, as in his spirit form there really was no need for him to hug the earth.

There in the distance the young Indian stood. The Great Bear joined him in the flicker of an eye and covered both of them with the love of all things.

Times of changes are coming they agreed with each other, as they both blended, sending out their thoughts to the Great Eagle, and there it was, closing its shimmering wings about the two with the same eternal love of all things.

It is good to move so, the Great Bear seemed to whisper, it is so easy for us of this spirit realm, to move in an instant of time, with no disturbance to those around.
“The creatures on the earth plain have seemingly forgotten how this is so”.

The Great Eagle whispered, “It is a fear they have old great one, it is a fear that they will float forever away from their clinging form.
If only they would trust the things they see, but it is a memory problem that troubles their souls”.
Listen to their thoughts of “How can I leave this body and travel as a spirit being, without coming to harm”.

The Great Bear said in softer tones, “It is the way of many that can only experience the journey across this astral plain but once, then to snap back liken to being held by an elastic band, as the fear of not being in their earthly bodies takes over”.

The Great Bear smiled, “If only they knew or could learn again, then they could become more involved with the way of things, even with their limitations”.

The young Indian laughed saying, “As I use to journey on the earth plain, with all our knowledge of the spirit world as we did, it seems a contradiction of beliefs to be so spiritual and not be aware of how to travel in these ways.
The elders had a few things to answer for though, as most of them were aware of all these things.
“A lesson to be taught and learned of” The Great Bear said to them.

“It is us in our travels that would make the earth plain dwellers open their eye’s” He said, as he took his two friends to the top of a plateaux,

There as you my eagle friend said, being aware and feeling more at one with all things, in this part of the world, as I do deep within the forest of my own being.
They all stood once again at the edge of the forest as the Great Bear spoke.

The young Indian Laughed and said “That was a lovely short trip old one, it is our way now, if only they could open their minds to moving this way.”

There are many things to do my wonderful friends, the great Eagle thought as he shimmered into the glow of the sunshine, giving out love that seemed to patter as a light rain on and about them,
“Farewell my fine friends, we will be as one again soon”.
The Great Bear and his Indian friend sent out love, as if to hold him up in the heavens he loved.
It is time to journey on the Great Bear smiled to the young Indian.
“Time what is that old Great one”, he teased, “Is that not what we always perceive as now”.
The Great Bear rainbowed his thoughts to the young Indian, as he sometimes played.

“Travel with love young one” he gently pushed out, as they divided their ways, in a shower of diamond like dew.

A great peace descended on the great bear as he sought the confines of the forest, that had been made for him by his ways, where to move felt restful to his spirit, where he could once again send out his eternal love to others, that they may feel it and learn………

“Wisdom”

The young Indian sat in the shadow of a rock high above his favourite valley.
He would spend many a time here rolling his thoughts into a level field where things such as life could be played out.
It came to him that the wisdom, he had within his spirit, had grown with each visit among the people of the earth plain.
He was aware that to listen to his spirit friends about the true ways of things, in that their wisdom, helped and it saved so much to be able to learn from them.

Wisdom he thought was the ability to recall an event and then to advise or act in a way that made the whole event a perfect item.

Imperfection he recalled, it was usually where the end product of anyone or thing, that had not used the wisdom of the years, was not really as it should be.

To go through the times of visiting the earth plain and of the numerous feelings within the spirit world, without using the wisdom of others, would make the journey seem endless and without form.

The young Indian thought that as the Great Bear would say, there is not enough of eternity to learn all the mistakes a person or spirit can make,
The Great Bear was there with him as he thought, and the feeling of love and understanding brought joy to his very being as they joined.
A oneness of eternity brought a calming love to their beings, and without changing their identities gave both of them a feeling of wholeness.

“I know you did not call me the Great Bear whispered, but as we know it is not needed that you should call my name for me to be with you”.
They both glowed and agreed to throw out the feeling of fun and love to all, also with a purpose of finding their other friend the Eagle.
Before the thought had fully formed there was a feeling of being wrapped in the softest velvet cloak as the Great Eagles wings held them as a mother would hold her child, with unconditional love.

The Great Bear agreed with the young Indian about the use of wisdom and how it would make some journeys so short, by portraying the effect of many situations, without having to endure the whole thing.

We all have great journeys to make, no matter how far along the path to perfection we are, therefore we must try as we go, to make the journey of others as beautiful as is possible, and where we can, we must leave the solutions to each problem that we know of for them to see.
This does not mean that they can avoid the way of learning.
If given a good reason for the lesson, and the product of the learning, then the completion of the path to eternal perfection would be a joy to their ways.

The young Indian travelled on to his own perfection, bidding farewell to his friends, with the love of all things, his Eagle friend felt the air lift him to carry on with his ways.

The Great Bear, felt the forest glow wrap around him, as his friends whispered that they would continue their journey’s and would as always be there with him on his pathway.
Feeling the leaves touching him as he carried on, he likened it to the many spirit thoughts that called him each day from the earth plain, and the spirit world.

The warm glow of the forest reminded him of the glow of love that filled the everything, the everything that was eternity. It is good, ran through his ways, it is so good.

“Pondering”

The bear raised his mighty head and felt the world around him
What was it like today he pondered?
What things were going to be there, where he walked?
He thought, it is strange that there is a path, and I am still amazed each day at the happenings along the way.
There are beautiful things for me to see he pondered that as each step was placed on the pathway of life, it became forever then the joy sprang into his mind, that as he placed his foot forward, there would always be a place of beauty to see.
Then he pondered, as to how some of the days, and steps along this path, could ever be awful for people to walk.
This is strange; to be able to sort out, why such as he could feel such beauty and joy at each step, when some of them around him were finding problems.
That was the problem in its own way, that they were finding problems, when there was only now to be content with.
It is a beautiful thing to live in the now, with the knowledge and belief that from now, you were there to be.
Then to accept that each now was unique in its own way.
You are responsible for all your now’s, and the way you perceive yourself in your own now, is how others will perceive you.
The great bear thought for a while on what to do, to bring all things into view where they brought joy to all around.
He knew that to be in perfection with your surroundings, and to live in that way was for him to do.

The others around could only learn from him, and pass on the joy of being, as they were observed on the path of life.
He shook his great head and laughed within his soul, for he was happy to have the way made brighter for him, and to be now again.

“To Greet Another Day”

The Great Bear lifted his head towards the light in the sky,
which heralded the new dawn.
What of yesterday he thought “Yes” what of yesterday?
Did I walk in the light of those days gone by?
Did I give my fellow spirits things that did make light of their journey?

It was for me to be aware of those things now past.
That if they had been carried out only in love.
Then my soul would be that much lighter for doing so.
To dwell on things past, but for a moment.

To realise that whatever I did for good, or otherwise could be used as a tool.
This was a way of helping others and me, in our now journey.
The great Bear thought on things, things that others might do, to use yesterday in the now.

A shout from yesterday that bode no good to anyone.
Could be used to free the quiet words of understanding of oneself.
A tear of frustration pulled from the eyes of not understanding.
Could be used to dampen the lips of fear.
So that they may feel the truth.

The look of scorn, which most times is given without thought.
Could open the eyes to see the way ahead, there to see the light.
The Great Bear knew that in his tomorrow, as was his now.
He had gained a love, on how to use, and change things.
He greeted the dawn of a new day with a great store of knowledge.
Which as you, he had learnt from others, and his before times.
He moved quickly forward into the light.
As if to let the light shine on his ways faster, than if he had waited.

“To Walk Alone”

The great bear lifted his head and looked inward to his very being.
This time he felt that he would walk alone, that was a mistake as to really walk alone, as he became aware of nothing.
Nothing clung to him like a bad odour, feeding off of his own self that could not cope with the space left by the contact with others.

It hurts me, oh how it hurts, he thought, to not feel the presence of other beings on my soul.
It was good to be able to feel this way, and experience the utter desolation that pervaded even to his projected limits.
To be able to feel this and still know that it was self-inflicted as a choice, to experience, made it easier for him to feel.
Wait he thought, what of those that felt this way and could not know of an end to this state of being.
The great bear shuddered to his very soul; it was without a doubt the end of all things, to truly walk alone.
Here he was being so stupid, as to think that he could even want to experience being alone.

Then there was a light that pushed out from his very being, it was as a guide and it was steady.
There it was the very heart of him glowing as it had for all his days, with memories of others attached to its glow, bringing love to his very inner self.

There was no way that he could walk alone in this existence, as for all time there he was, then someone.
A someone that he could lean on in harder days.
Someone he would ask the earth of, and know it would be given.

Not always though, that he could see how it had been given, at the time. But usually if he asked for the earth, it would make him realise that he had it already, and it was to open his eyes at sometime.
Then that someone would show him the way.

The great bear realised that it is better to travel life’s journey as he did, with the contact of others than to walk alone.
The coldness he had felt left him, and he was happy to just be, even the sounds of those around him seemed to be more beautiful.

“A walk with the Great Bear”

The great bear lifted his head and walked into the field.
There he mused was a quandary, is this really here or has it never been or is it infinity.

Then using his senses he became aware of first his body, a form that held a place in this open area.
Was this real! then from the input of his feelings that told him there was something under his great feet, and the fact that there was a movement of air around him, that he not only felt, but sensed with his taste and smell but with his inner self, then he decided that something did exist there where he was.

Was it me the bear that existed here in this open plain was it me.
If so what part of me was there that said so, and where was Me.
The great bear pondered, then the strange awareness that he knew which had come to him everyday that he could remember.

With it came a silence within his great frame, as there came to him the real being he was, there was he, it, the bear thing, that was affected by all around him, then there was, what he was and always used to really be.

There deep inside yet held out around his form was something to really ponder, something to really feel, something so big that his massive frame seemed to shrink with the thought of something, so powerful yet calm.
With a beauty that held his thoughts in awe for more than several lifetimes in its own way.

I have found me he pondered, this is the real me held with a light that ran in all directions with colours that made him pant, with their peaceful picture of the life source he had learned to love.

He lifted his great head and sent out a rainbow of love to his friend and fellow traveller the Eagle that flew free in the heavens above, that seemed to scream with laughter at the great loveable creature, just to feel that he was aware of what he was.

“A Discovery”

The bear lifted his mighty head and glanced toward the forest.
Today he would journey on through the trees and glades, thinking of life and of things that would come to him.

As the trees closed around his form, he reflected on the strength and comfort he felt as a young spirit.
When he was held in the arms of the loved ones he knew so well.

Here he paused to reflect on the meanings of being held as if in the mother’s womb.
There the comfort was absolute, and although the memory had faded, it was as if he could still feel that energy which held him, with love for all those days of becoming.

Brushing aside the undergrowth, he carried on into the clearing that he had enjoyed for always his own space where all things belonged to him.
In their simplicity and beauty nuzzling the grass, that held the patterns of his ways in a delicate green, knowing that there was a path on his way.

Although so delicate it would still hold a record of his passing by also it would surrender softness under his way, which became a feeling of growth and love nudging the trees that surrounded the clearing, he felt the giving strength of them, as they held him for a moment.
Then they released him in a swinging way, as if to bow to his superior strength.
This was not so he knew, as their strength, if they were to bind together would surpass his, and hold him forever.
Playing with this strength he moved slowly away and deeper into the forest, as if becoming a part of the forest and its ways.
The air seemed to slow and move, as it wanted to, singing as it played with the trees around.
The Great Bear lifted his head and breathed in the air as it wandered around finding that there was a record of the ages of the forest, held within its essence, which to him was eternal as all things there was.

The perfumes here were of the beginning, and the end, of this his place for always.
Moving toward the great trees he felt a little meek in his ways, as they were the mother and father of his domain.
They gave the life he had, a substance and a meaning in that they reached around and felt all things without taking or needing of him.
They would always give, even in their demise; they gave life to the smallest creature and life forms that prevailed in this domain.
Holding such beauty in the changes from one form to another, in the altering states of all things, as nothing remains the same as life’s journey goes on.
Here the trees in their climb for the sun; would in their lives not support so many things.
It was as they lived in the throes of death, that they gave nourishment to all others.

The bear looked up to the sky, and sent eternal love to the tops of the trees and beyond.
Where the birds climbed the wing beaten steps to the clouds, and he marvelled at the form of the air in its colour, and the texture that changed as time was given to all things.

Time or was it that even the air had to journey on making its life and giving things sometimes changing things for ever.
Sometimes caressing the life forms around, and at other times changing their forms as it hurried on its own journey
What of the master plan he asked, as he thought of the progress of all things, as they were of the eternal energy.
“What of me have I not been, and am I not now a part of the whole?
The Great Bear shifted with a little unease at finding that his journey below in his beloved domain was as the winds journey, and that of all things that used the universal energy.
He seemed to shiver a little in the knowledge that he belonged to everything and was the same, then a broad smiling thought came over his frame and found him complete, in that in his love of himself he loved everything.
