"Devotion is not going to a temple or a church to pray. Devotion is love and romance with God. Your mind is dancing with God. • God is my lover, my beloved •. God is everything to me . • that attitude must come • . when all the passions are transformed, then you will have no passion for anything except God." (Saraswati 1994). "... feeling makes you like a child, and feeling is always pure. Therefore it is the feeling which you have to develop, not the intellect or reason . . . there is a time when intellect is necessary, but a time comes when your life must be steered by positive feelings.., feelings of devotion and love.., childlike devotion is necessary for bhakti •.. it is possible for the greatest intellectual giant to become like a child." (Saraswati 1994) Such powerful love for God may not put you in an ordinary or unusual yoga class once or twice a week, yet from a classical and traditional point of view this strong love for the Divine is, indeed, considered to be a form of yoga; a yoke which can connect the lover to the Beloved. When the feelings are so strong, they can unite subject and Object in ecstatic communion. The distillation of traditional and classical forms of yoga, filtering out the spiritual and religious content, has had some positive consequences for government institutions. Public schools across the U.S., from universities to grammar schools, have incorporated yoga into their physical education departments for decades now, drawing on yoga's capacity for providing a gentle form of excellent, physical exercise for kids and adults• Then too, the science of the breath, known in India as Swara, is helpful in balancing the emotions. Simple concentration practices such as sitting quietly and being aware of the breath, help children and adults improve their ability to concentrate• Lastly, the simple relaxation techniques found in yoga are an aid to learning• When one is relaxed, the ability to learn is enhanced. The ability to concentrate, along with calm emotions, also enhances learning• Then too, consider the fact that Western science has been studying the effects of yoga for decades, and it was this focus by scientists which helped coin the term "mind/body connection•" We now know that many of what could be called the secular practices in yoga, practices which involve the mind, like concentration and visualization, can have a positive and even healing effect on the physical body• And beyond government and scientific institutions, some large companies and corporations in the U.S. provide yoga classes for their employees. Even some religious institutions have drawn on the benefits of yoga to help their adherents deal with stresses, as did the Catholic Church in Medellin, Colombia, in the late 1970s. The level of drug-related violence in and around Medellin was so high at the time, that the abbot of a local monastery contacted a well-known yoga school in India, asking for a teacher to come and help the monks and priests learn effective relaxation techniques in the face of so much violence and anguish. Currentlythere are two, ongoing yoga classes open to the public in the Julian area: Angle Brenner's class at Spencer Valley School in Wynola, and Lorien Lehmer's class at the Julian Library. Ms. Brenner received her training at Soul of Yoga in Encinitas, two of whose founders were long- time, American students of the Indian tradition brought to the United States by Paramahansa Yogananda in the 1930s. Ms. Brenner teaches a class which combines elements from raja yoga and hatha yoga. In other words, postures and moving exercises for the physical body, breathing exercise, relaxation, simple visualization, and a brief meditation. At the end of each The Sons Spot The Sons of the American Legion held their regularly monthly meeting on November 2nd. A large group representing different organizations was in attendance• Tracy Turner of the Merchants Association was there to thank the Sons for providing security at the Apple Days function and to request help decorating Main St. for the holidays. A large SAL crew will be out on Friday to finish decorating and the funds earned will be donated to a worthy cause in Julian. The JHS girls basketball team will have a breakfast on December 5th to raise money for transportation costs to their away games• There's no money to transport these kids and in the past their parents have been filling the gap. Van costs to transport the girl's team for this season, could be upwards of a $1,000.00, so a successful breakfast would go a long way in covering this expense. Next up will be a breakfast to raise money to send Julian kids to one of the three YMCA camps• Sandra Lee representing the Allen Cole Wolowski Memorial Fund is pushing hard to avail local kids the opportunity to experience one of the great camps here in Julian. Costs are high, so a great breakfast would make some local kids real happy. The first SAL breakfast in 2011 on January 2nd is slated to benefit this group• in the past and again this year, SAL will sponsor a breakfast for the Junior High School, so the eighth graders get a chance to earn some money for their graduation dance. April 3rd is the date for this event• As you can see, the Sons of the American Legion in Julian are an extremely active group in supporting local causes. It benefits many organizations where there is no formal source of funds• There are others in this community who toil anonymously year after year, to benefit those who are less fortunate• The Sons contribute annually to Vee Lumpkins food drive and many quiet donors do as well• This food drive benefits between 140 to 150 local families every year and you can help• While cash donations are always appreciated, contributions of canned goods at various merchant locations are a great way to help as well. Space doesn't allow more information about this drive now, but look to future columns for more info. class is a short, devotional invocation for peace and well- being. Classes are every Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m., and every Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m.. Lorien Lehmer received her training at the Yoga and Meditation Center in San Diego, whose founder, Shashi Pottathil, originally from India, teaches classical Hatha Yoga modified for Westerners. Shashi's roots in India include the well-known Shivananda school in Rishikesh. Swami Shivananda was a medical doctor who worked tirelessly to uplift India's poor, to develop various yoga therapies for healing disease, and to bring his various students to the door of Self-Realization. Lorien's classes begin every Friday morning at 9:00 a.m., at the Library. References: Saraswati, Swami Niranjanananda. Yoga Sadhana Panorama, v I1. 1997.

We plan on placing our decorated donation boxes the weekend after Thanksgiving at various shops in town and schools. Our program is solely by the community and for the community. Only those residing. in our 92036 zip code will be eligible to receive this package of food• We depend on the money contributions to purchase the frozen turkeys and hams, five pound bags of potatoes, bag of oranges, eggs, yams, cranberry sauce, some canned items. Please make checks out to either Vee Lumpkins or Barbara Simpson. Mark for Holiday Food Drive. Mail to: P.O. Box 2228, Julian, CA 92036 or bring them to the Town Hall. Tuesday December 21st is our distribution day. We also accept toys for children. Bring them to the Town Hall. Our special thanks to all who participate with us in our efforts to make Christmas a happy one for those who are financially unable to have a good one. November 10, 2010 Veterans Day continued from page 1 helicopter 12 feet off the water with 85% main rotor speed. I activated the fuel dump valves to reduce weight while we gradually picked up enough forward airspeed that we were able to fly out, slowly gain altitude, and return to the ship. The #2 jet turbine engine had sucked up a rag. By the time the engine finished tearing itself apart, you could roll a golf ball completely through it. I did my one rescue off the North Island jetty. We got a call that another helicopter had crashed in the water• I directed the rescue from the back while the pilots flew the helicopter and the swimmer jumped in for the rescue. Think "Top Gun" when Goose and Maverick parachuted into the water and were picked up by the Coast Guard helicopter. I remember the pride I felt when we saved the copilot and the crewman of the other helo and the disappointment that the pilot died• HC-9 was the Navy's only Combat Search and Rescue Squadron for a number of years• Our HH-3As were armor plated and carried a lot of guns. We all thought we were Rambo. We were trained to go in "Hot" with the GAU-2 Gatling gun blazing, an M-16 under our arm, a bayonet in our teeth (OK just kidding about the bayonet) and pull our pilots out of harms way. So, I was a little put out when a month before Iraq invaded Kuwait HC-9 was decommissioned and I went to Desert Storm as a Flight Attendant Trainee with VR-57. I spent the War in Sembach, Germany drinking German beer and German wine. I never thought much about any of this and rarely spoke of it. I got choked up just writing it down. My wife Lisa is reading some of it here for the first time• I. only started reflecting on my time in the Navy after Jimmy Carter invited me to join the American Legion Lincoln Deming Post 468 in Julian, CA. http://www.
