Your True Nature
August 2018

Yoga Sutra 1.3
“Then the seer abides in his own true nature”
Yoga Sutra 1.2  tells us that Yoga is the cessation of the fluctuations of the mind. Yoga Sutra 1.3 lets us know what can happens after we gain control of these fluctuations.
As the mind is quieted from all outside distractions and the focus is turned inward, we can learn the splendor that is our true nature. 

We come into this world perfect just as we are. There is nothing we need that we don’t already have. But we allow the experiences of the world to hide this Truth from us. 
These fluctuations of the mind can deceive you into thinking that you are not good enough, or that you are lacking, are peeled away, each time you sit in the power of your own perfect peace.
Yoga gives us the ability to remove all illusions of imperfection and lets us realize the Divine nature inherent in each of us. 

Meditation is the means by which this self-realization can be achieved with a consistent practice. 
Initially we catch glimpses of this reveleation. But the world creeps back in with illusions of not enough. So we find we have to sit again and again.
We add these moments together until we can meld into Joy and find the enlightenment of our own truth.

Are You at Risk for Skin Cancer?

Too much sun exposure your skin actually starts to break down the newly produced vitamin D.
Place Mushrooms in Sunlight to Get Your Vitamin D
Even if you never sunburn, you can get skin cancer.
Bob Marley died on 11 May 1981 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami (now University of Miami Hospital), aged 36. The spread of melanoma to his lungs and brain caused his death.
Each hour one person dies from skin cancer.
Since its inception in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation hs always recommended using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or hghter as one important part of a complete sun protection regimen. Sunscreen alone is not enough, however. Read our full list of skin cancer prevention tips.

  • Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM.
  • Do not burn.
  • Avoid tanning and UV tanning beds.
  • Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
  • Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant, broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside.Reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.
  • Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months.

August Pose of the Month

Salamba Sarvangasana/Shoulder Stand

Lying on your back, lift your knees toward the chest.  Inhaling begin lifting your back from the floor bringing your hands at the lower back, palms facing the back. Exhaling engaging the core by lifting the abdominal muscle in and up as well as lifting the pelvic floor, then begin pushing your legs and feet up towards the ceiling. Walk your elbows in towards the shoulders. Hold and breathe slowly.
If this strains your neck, place a blanket under the shoulders allowing the head to rest on the mat at a lower level than the shoulders. It can further be modified by keeping the hips on the floor, with your legs lifted up towards the ceiling and hands behind the knees.
