The Fish-Bear

During the work we did during our retreat at the end of May, I asked my 'inner shaman' (a bear that seemed to be made of fish) for a mythic conflict to work on.

He called attention to the way he is very grounded -- stands in one place and trusts that the fish will come to him. He doesn't rush through the forest, and he doesn't have to avoid anything or worry about hurting anyone. He stands and waits. The world flows into the sea, the sea flows into the fish, he eats the fish and brings their gifts to the world.

He gives me a fish. It turns to gold coins in my hands.
