    Bear as verb means to continue to have/use something.
    Thank you for your advice, I'll bear it in mind (= will remember and use it).
    His paintings which fetch tens of thousands of dollars, bear the lessons of his time as an astronaut...= His paintings are outcome of the past lessons learnt as astronaut and utilizing the same to make paitings
