My rays are big, but do not burn or shine. The cavern that you see can be dangerous to thee. What am I?

Well done all :D

Is it post box?
Or sorting office?

And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.

Extra clue: among beasts my bearing is royal.

Invisible clue (well done for seeing it): I'm often feline fine.

Here's one. Ok! Are you ready?

A house has four walls.
All four walls face south.
A bear is prowling around the house.
What colour is the bear?
And I dreamed I saw the bombers riding shotgun in the sky, and they where turning into butterflies above our nation. Joni Mitchell

It's a polar bear, so it's white.
