The Great Elk

In our own tribal ways, there was a Master of Life, the Great Mystery, who was formless, but some say the Sun was his face. Every species had its own Master, a very large and holy Being that was the paragon and leader/god/ancestor of that species: a Great Bear, a Great Buffalo, and so on.

In one of my dreams as a youth, I saw the Great Elk. There were two of his elk “soldiers” at either side, and their antlers were 8 or 9 feet long, and they could be seen very clearly, almost like Irish elk. In the center, in the shadows of the pines, was the Great Elk Himself, not humanoid in any way, but a very large God-Elk, His antlers 18 or 20 feet in length and width. I do not remember any speech, just his calm regard. Then all three of them withdrew into the woods.
