Bears in Powerful-Play
The bears ascend with their heartbeats embodied in Nature. They give themselves to the Beauty all around and rise above into something greater, though–wise bears–they don’t generally try to put this into words.
The past trails off into the infinite unknown. The future trails off into an equally infinite unknown. But the bears dwell in this place and make the most of it, giving each other bear hugs and belly rubs, astonished to have ended up in just this time together.
Of course we are momentary flickers in the Universe. But, rather than despair, maybe we can let the Truth give rise to a sacred perception, a deep moral reflection on what is worthy of our lives and what needs our protection.
