Bear and the Place of Emergence

He is becoming man
and man was once him.
Many women also are known
to be born Bears.
Bears and humans are so closely
allied that possessing
Bear spirit is said to be both
the greatest and fiercest of
the spiritual powers
that inhabits healers.
Some say that Bear is the ancestor
of the human race.
Emanating from the
Place of Emergence at Bear's center
is the Healer reborn
after having been devoured by Bear.
