A Bear’s view of life

February 20, 2017

 

Some forms of Wildlife I am very glad I don’t meet in person.  I mean, I truly love bears and how majestic and beautiful they are – but I would rather admire them from afar – especially if they have babies!  (The videos here were taken with a remote, motion detection triggered camera).  No people or bears were hurt in the process! 🙂

Dr. Tae Yun Kim owns a large, beautiful property in Oregon, that has some “native dwellers” living on it naturally, and here you can see them.  They lead a completely natural, yet protected life, and I had to think of some of what Dr. Kim wrote in “The Silent Master:”

“Freedom does not mean being free from adversity or difficulty.  Freedom is the knowledge that you have the power to conquer adversity and difficulty.  If you could ask any animals living fee in the animal kingdom, they would tell you that they aren’t free from “trouble.”  Predators are everywhere, and life is a daily challenge.  But all animals were born with instincts to protect them, and were given special talents and abilities to help them stay alive and pursue their lives in freedom.  It is the same for you!”

And isn’t that how bears live?  They are not free from trouble, but they know how to deal with it.  So let’s be a little like them, know who we are and know we have all the tools we need to live as we were meant to!

 

We live in a wonderful time called now

I know it’s hard to imagine we can learn something from goats.  But really, look at this little one right here.  Isn’t he/she expressing who they are?  Aren’t they living in the here and now like we are meant to do?

Have we met before?

Consider what Dr. Tae Yun Kim is saying on this topic:

“You live in a wonderful time called now.  In this moment everything true about you is waiting to be recognized and expressed.  Everything in the past is gone.  Tomorrow will never come. There is always only now.  You can take charge, take action, and create freedom for yourself.

Right here and right now let’s start celebrating!  Freedom is real.  Freedom is possible.  You have power, truth, beauty and potential within you always waiting to be discovered, always waiting to be expressed.  What is stopping you?  What is holding you back?  You are free to be free!

(The Silent Master, page 162)

See now what I mean?  Let’s enjoy life and be who we were born to be!

Turkey Talk

There is safety in numbers!  This applies especially to our turkeys here – the total number might have been around 30-40 turkeys, right in the middle of the street.

You might ask yourself, what possibly could I learn from turkeys?  Aren’t they supposed to be really stupid?  To Dr. Tae Yun Kim, no animal is ever stupid. Why?  Look at them!  To survive harsh winters and with numerous predators around all wanting to eat them, they still manage to survive in great numbers!

In addition, these turkeys teach us this:

“Our actions are guaranteed to affect others.  Because we are not alone in this world, much of our learning about ourselves comes from our interaction with others  Our relationships are our teachers. We learn from each other.” (Seven Steps to Inner Power, page 76)

Look at these turkeys – they learn from each other, they interact with each other and together they make it happen!

So, yes, we can learn even from turkeys!

HE CAN DO, SHE CAN DO, WHY NOT ME!
