My self-summary
Personality

I'm an INTP. This means I think about things deeply and look for intuitive understandings about how the world and self work. Most of my thinking is geared towards figuring out how to be in the world, seeing as life doesn't come with an instruction manual. My focus is on understanding what it means to be from a subjective standpoint, what am I, who am I, how should I be? I also seek to solidify the connection to the realm of the Soul. I prefer silence to noise, and I prefer the Language of the Soul to silence. My biggest concern throughout my life has been how to communicate past people's misunderstandings and defenses for the purposes of healing and integration.

Energy

All healing and all understanding comes from the Heart. I have a very large heart and I prefer to communicate directly from the Heart. That is not easy to do most of the time, but I'm working on it. I am seeking to surround myself with people who are dedicated to tapping into and expressing the Heart in all their actions and interactions.

What I’m doing with my life
My life will be in transition for the next year because I finally feel like I know who I want to be and am starting to take steps in that direction. As of the summer of 2006 I dropped out of grad school for computer science because my heart was not in it. I soon found myself enrolled for massage therapy and I am heading in a very different direction than I was before. The safe option would have been to stay in grad school and trap myself in a socially acceptable job out of the Fear of the Unknown. I couldn't do that any more, I was betraying my soul and my heart's desire.

Massage Therapy is just one piece of who I want to become, but it physically represents the metaphor of how I want to work on all levels: mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, psychological, and philosophical. The metaphor of Massage (the releasing of blocked tension and undoing knots) can be applied on all levels and I want to become proficient in releasing knots at the level of the individual, the family, corporations and community. We often are blocked in life because we have tied ourselves in knots and do not see how to free ourselves from these tangles. I see this work being done under a paradigm similar to, if not identical to, life-coaching. I also see myself working with other consultants/counsellors/therapists to help transform our communities by bringing them into alignment with our hearts and souls.
I’m really good at
1) Listening

Listening is a skill I have been developing. The effects of truly listening is that the other person not only feels heard but also begins to understand themselves better. When one person listens to another, it awakens the other person's ability to listen to themselves and others. Listening is not a passive activity, it is very active process where the mind and heart are engaged on the part of the listener.

2) Thinking Clearly

One of the effects of learning how to listen is that you begin to think clearly. Listening quiets the mind and from that position of quietude, the mind is able to see situations more clearly and reason about them more dispassionately. From the position of a quiet mind, a person is better able to examine the hidden (and likely false) assumptions they have about the world, the universe, and themselves.

3) Communicating Through the Heart

A message from one person to another that is sent through the heart can only be received through the other person's heart. I have a talent for communing with people and bringing them into their hearts because I have choosen to live in mine and communicate through my own heart. Of course, a person can only go into their hearts willingly. Many people are obsessed with life outside of thier heart and many people are afraid to go into their heart because it means scraping and cleaning out the pain that covers their heart.

1) Showers 2) Sleep 3) Down-time in the psychological space called Home 4) Friends 5) Asking Questions 6) The attitude that barriers can be worked past.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Nature of self, the universe, God, knowledge, thinking, logic, etc.

Read my blogs/journals to see how my thinking has evolved over time: http://www.livejournal.com/users/algebraicring/

More and more now I have moved from using the mind as a guide to using my heart as a guide. I actually think a lot less and instead I bring the situation into my heart and let my heart and mind work together to reach an understanding which can't be reached through the mind alone.

On a typical Friday night I am
Lately my friday nights have been spent in the company of my friends involved with the Piglrimage Integrated Healing Process. The process is a combination of Reiki, Polarity, and Laying of Hands. One person lays on the table while two other people apply the energy work, making a safe and secure space for the person on the table to do their own healing.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are a quite a few regrets in me for a 27 year old. I regret getting involved in a co-dependent relationship for two years and trapping myself in an engagement to a woman that I didn't even want to have as a friend. I regret the sleeping around i did after that relationship. I regret the emotional immaturity that has flavored much of my past. I regret the fears I had of my professors while I was an undergraduate student. At this point I think I've managed to stop making decisions I'll regret, but I still need to sit in the regret of my past decisions for the purposes of gaining maturation, wisdom and perspective. See: http://www.whysanity.net/monos/bigkahuna.html -- I love this monologue. The whole movie is awesome.

-------- On Relationships --------

On the level of friendship, if you're remotely philosophical, spiritual, or into self-awareness, then we'd get along like two peas in a pod. I'm a good ear and listen well and I appreciate people who listen in return. True listening facillitates understanding and healing of the soul. Most of the sickness in the world and in our culture is caused by people not listening to each other. I am a very good ear.

I am open to temporary relationships for the purposes of companionship, healing and growth. I think it is naive to only look for the person we're going to spend the rest of our lives with. All relationships are vehicles for learning life-lessons. To actually sustain a long term relationship we have to know ourselves thoroughly, know what we want, and operate from maturity. That is usually attained through a sequence of temporary relationships. I see many people try to get into long term relationships and go through lots of pain and chaos to finally have the relationship terminated because they did not know what they wanted and came into the relationship under a delusion and with unrealistic expectations. I see that, and I don't want that. Most of my healing and maturing has been done through temporary relationships. I didn't understand it at the time, but I see it now. Temporary relationships are critical stepping stones to being able to sustain a final long term relationship because they are how we work on ourselves.

I am also open to entering a long term relationship. I am not yet in a position to know exactly what I want out of a long term relationship. I think what is most likely to happen is that I'll enter into a temporary relationship and find that I really jive with the person and will just continue being with them. I do know that whoever I end up in a long term relationship with, we'll be working together on projects and share a lot of the same interest in terms of community and communing with others.

Whether it is a temporary relationship or a long term relationship, I am very open hearted. I like to cuddle and be physically close. I like to be emotionally transparent and talk about everything that is going on. Essentially I like to operate with as few as walls as possible. I like to take the other person's being into my own being and vice-versa. This creates a very intimate connection that often leads into psychic interaction. When it is time for a temporary relationship to end, both people will know and will cherish the time they spent together.
