All the love you feel in your life becomes a bear on the big mountain. The bears relax and play on the mountainside as long as you live. They are brown, black, white, reddish brown or any bear color you can imagine. They start out as cubs and then grow as you feel love throughout your life. Many of the oldest are large, almost like elephants. Some never get very big. All the other bears feel a special affection for these, making sure they are fed and cared for. When you die your bear turns suddenly and runs as fast as it can up the mountain – all the other bears roaring in encouragement – lumbering breathlessly toward the bright light at the summit, excited to see what he or she will see. We're all bears on the big mountain, people, living together, waiting to run that final climb.
Hello, friends. I hope your bear grows today.
