Then at center of this sick bear is a truly powerful core of spirit, soul and universal connection that knows the why of the things that the big ole bear sometimes forgets. There is a bright and sparkly diamond of consciousness, aliveness and creativity that is reaching out to both soothe and heal this coughing bear with patience and compassion and is gently reminding him with persistence and urgency about who he really is and what he is here to do. This diamond is radiating certainty, wisdom and curiosity as it lights up the corners of this old bears consciousness while reassuring him that there will be plenty of time for rest and hanging out in the cave, and that step out he must in order to live into his purpose. As this diamond grows brighter in the big ole bear’s chest he begins to stir and remember who he is, yes he can still feel the tickle in his throat and the urge to cough but all of the draggyness that was clinging to those sensations starts to melt away in the bright light of the diamond as it strengthens the bear and fills him with light. Yes it is still grey and rainy outside but all of the added depressing stuff dissipates and it becomes more exciting to watch the storm blow in and the waves grow in size and the elements flying as they are meant to. Yes the people are still coming and as the light filling the bear begins to radiate out of him he knows that he is on this earth doing this work and it is good and it is on purpose and that he and the people that are coming will all be served by him. Yes this bear both desires to be alone in his cave sometimes and in intimate connection with his beloved sometimes and he is completely clear that one never cancels out the other, that he can both love his beloved and love his alone time and both can love him. The Bear can now stand strong and look over his world and see much possibility for life.
Take a big breath in, shake out a cough, unwrap a cough drop and as you suck on it smile and know that you are all right.
