Winnipeg the Bear lives in a tree that houses the Ark of the Covenant.
I am at my brothers in Toronto right now. I just noticed an old postcard I gave to him as a gift around ten years ago. It was on his fire place mantle.
The postcard depicts three mountains and the word "Manitoba", which underneath says
"Your Mountain Paradise."
At the time I thought it was hilarious because Manitoba is anything but mountainous. But now in hindsight as the year of 2010 creeps closer I realize that this card is prophetic. Not only do the Mountains look like Three Pyramids or Pillars, but the idea of Manitoba as a Mountain is very suitable. Manitoba might be flat and humble but I feel it is also symbolizes the top of the spiritual mountain that we all must climb.
It is the paradise at the top of the mountain, where Heaven and Earth meet and the Gods reside.
The Everest of Spirit I feel will be reached next Spring during the World Religions Summit in Winnipeg (June 21-23,2010).
We shall see.
