The paraxial model for a nonlinear resonator with a saturable absorber beyond the meanfield limit was investigated. Total radiation confinement and the formation of 3D localized bright structures was observed for accessible parametric domains. It was observed that self-organization proceeded from the resonator feedback, combined with diffraction and nonlinearity. Analysis shows that light bullets can be independently excited and erased by appropriate pulses, and after creation they endlessly travel the cavity round-trip.
