Perhaps I could shine some light on this dilemma with a theory of what the Bear in your dream could represent. Of course even Bears, as all living beings, have souls and still possess the potentiality for one day acheiving liberation, even if it may require a great deal more time than for some humans to do so. So perhaps this Bear in your dream could be a symbol of our human interrelationship with all other living beings. After all, if misguided and nonvirtuous could not our own karma and lack of wisdom lead any of us humans now, to the form of an animal in a future life? Hope this could help some.
