"Whatever comes, do not push it away, whatever goes, do not grieve. Everything appears just like clouds floating by; they just come and go. Stay only as the unmoving awareness. Awareness and truth are one."

"The wonderful smell of rosemary is often associated with good food and great times. But it could just as easily be associated with good health. Rosemary contains substances that are useful for stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation and improving digestion. Rosemary also contains anti-inflammatory compounds that may make it useful for reducing the severity of asthma attacks. In addition, rosemary has been shown to increase the blood flow to the head and brain, improving concentration. So, the next time you enhance the flavor of some special dish with rosemary, congratulate yourself for a wise as well as delicious choice." whfoods.com

Sun Yoga is a practice by which one lives off the energetic rays of the sun. In this practice, the sun is gazed at daily during sunrise or sunset for just a few minutes, in order to vitalize the pineal gland and feed the body with solar energy.
Apparently there are thousands of people around the globe living entirely off of sunlight. Contrary to popular belief, the body does not need food for energy or to stay alive. As all plants gain their substance from solar energy, we too can go to this pure source and receive our food directly. Along with pure water, Sun Yoga can give our systems all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals necessary for survival. The sun is clearly not the enemy it has been made out to be by the media. Studies have shown that it is, in fact, the chemicals in sunscreen and the additives in food, combined with extreme sun exposure that cause skin cancer. The sun itself is a benign, loving source of pure energy, warmth and light.
To practice Sun Yoga, one must be diligent in sun gazing daily whilst standing barefoot on earth or sand. The period spent sun gazing each day is increased incrementally. There is a systematic approach to this practice and when followed correctly, appetite lessens more and more until the body becomes naturally able to thrive on sun energy alone. This is an amazing practice with far-reaching implications for human growth and evolution. Sun gazing has also been explored as a way to elevate oneself spiritually and to overcome the density and limitations of the human form. Perhaps gravity itself will give way as we merge with the light, pure, free essence of the sun.

In Tantra, we utilize the energy of sexual ecstasy to reach euphoric heights of physical, emotional and spiritual communion. We join with a lover and practice sharing our bodies on deep levels of sexual play, intimacy and oneness. Penetration and orgasm cease to be our one-track focus and we allow arousal to deepen, rise and reach crescendos of passion over and over again, without actually coming to a climax.
This process stirs up within us coiling flames of spiritual light which correspond to a profound and powerful energy sourced from our Creator. It is the energy of bliss, of infinite love and of absolute creativity. With it swirling inside us from tantric union, we can experience much more than the temporary and fleeting pleasure of normal sex. The awakening of the kundalini spiral or our pure life force energy is akin to opening up a direct communication line with the Divine.
As our lover accepts and receives us at the deepest core of being and we dance together in a warm, flowing explosion of sensual and heartfelt love, a way is provided for the two to become one. In this, the merging of our bodies' polarities extends into a dissolving of the boundaries between the human and God. Our process of synergizing seemingly separate bodies, minds and souls, unites the whole of creation into a spiral dance of the One Song.
All of us can experience this reunion in our own love relationships. In simply putting aside competition, coercion, judgment and manipulation, we begin to approach sexual union as a prayer, a sacred opportunity to offer waves of unconditional love upon our partner in selfless devotion.
As a result, we experience the transforming effects of tantric union:
Timelessness, where you are no longer bound by the concept of time. Every preoccupation ceases except the full exquisite realization of this moment with your beloved.
Boundlessness, during which your body and the body of your lover merge as the material fixity of each dissolve into the spiritualized One self.
Ecstasy and Euphoria, in the ultimate experience of total body orgasm after the focal point of sensation spreads from the region of the sex organs to encompass the entire terrain of your inner and outer form.
Synchronicity, of thought, feeling and action is felt between you and yours bringing about an ecstatic harmony with the All That Is.
In Tantra there comes the moment when you no longer are, your partner no longer is, and a new, greater being is created, merged in mind, body, soul and spirit. With this level of sexual exploration, lovers can never tire of each other as they venture past the limited confines of body identification and leap into the boundless heights of soul connection. Sex in Tantra between two souls will always be new, exciting and of transcendent quality. Seek and discover the depths of this mystery within your love relationship and God will always stand right at your fingertips ~

When clarity of mind bursts forth from the constraints of human conditioning and encounters divine understanding, the synergy created is a deep and utterly transformational reunion with Self. In this reunion, a rising above the density of material existence is felt and the soul is set free into bliss. Free to surrender all but the loftiest notions of goodness, perfection and love. As the soul travels on this journey of oneness and alights in the orgasmic interplay with the highest realm, all the universe delights in ecstatic transcendence. The human mind is made whole again as it dissolves into the One mind. The All self unites and permeates the very essence of our being. We become complete, we heal, all problems are released and Grace alone prevails.
The crystal palace that shimmers between our old and new mind lights the way to the daily evolution of our small self. It is the sacred center of our being where we know God. Pouring forth the elixir of heaven, the ambrosia of angelic rapture, this mystical life center quenches the longing of our separate self, impregnating our core with Divine consciousness; and we ascend. We move past fear and sickness, overcome poverty and pain and rejoice in a new found integration with all that we truly are. The merging of the Essence self with that which was seemingly separate, is the sublime act of cosmic sexual union. "One becomes lucid within the dream of life and life is revealed to be a dream."*
After coming into perfect harmony with the Divine self, we receive the holy grail of communion and realize how empty we have been before this climactic moment. In fullness, now, we soar with our hand on the philosopher's stone, not to hoard or contain it but to unleash its passionate promise unto the entire universe. In profound joy, we go forth vibrating in unison with the cosmos in a glorious expression of bliss without end. As our body becomes the vehicle for the illumination of Spirit, we open at our very core to experience every nuance of the divine impulse. We become the cosmos~
