This sounded fun:
For Valentines 2014 Noontide I listened to:
The Really Big Questions: What is This Thing Called Love?
The first program in a new series, The Really Big Questions (TRBQ). "What is This Thing Called Love?" Brain scientists, evolutionary biologists, anthropologists, and marriage sociologists explore this question about love. Dean Olsher hosts the series produced by Mary Beth Kirchner, Catherine Winter and Chris Julin.
Now I having drank a mocha and about to toke a bit of ganja I plan to listen to "Positive Relationships" a Learning Strategies Paraliminal.
This is what it says on the Web page:
Learning Strategies | Paraliminals | Positive Relationships
Attract and/or improve relationships
"Attract, nurture, and maintain strong, loving, rich, and satisfying relationships. Discover the secrets of solving people problems and healing interpersonal wounds.
Resolve personal and professional conflicts with others. Improve the quality of all relationships. Interact with others in healthy and positive ways. Attract loving, supportive individuals. Enjoy the rapturous love life of your dreams.
Human beings are meant to relate to each other. This CD/mp3 can help make relating safer and easier than ever."
OK, let's see. ..
Later on I might utilize:

... if I ever get around to editing this description it'll be a miracle. Expect a few redundancies ... incomplete yet replete with length and weirdness ;-)
The Universe interacting with Itself as the MultiVerse of All Possibility, the interrelatedness of all beings. From that I come ... don't we all?
I am a wave of the infinite.
Occasionally taking form as an atypical, optimystical, integral, postmodern domesticated human primate ... suffering and enjoying, gradually and suddenly becoming lucid within the dream.

Here's what my voice sounds like:
Reading #4 - Confronting the Clear Light (ABOTD)
reading softly and late at night...
I've been meditating off and on since I was 11.
Sometimes I go to Unity Christ Church http://www.unitychristchurch.org/about/faq
and the Zen Center
Polymorphic Monotheistic and/or an Interconnective Polytheistic. I appreciate paganism, agnosticism, and compassionate multidimensional atheism as well. Integral Spirituality.
The Belief-O-Matic™ calculated me to match with:
Unitarian Universalism (92%)
New Age (91%)
"A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary." - ACIM
As far as religion, I'm not a conventional orthodox anything. I tend toward non-dualist paths, seeing them all as branches and roots within the Perennial Wisdom/Philosophy that is made self evident as I come closer than hands or feet and nearer than the breath.
I am atypical, optimystical, and integral.
It's been a while since I've updated my profile. I was thinking of deleting my answers and profile and starting over. Many questions where skipped or answered in the more extreme version. At this time I hardly feel I have enough time to enjoy and take care of my single/solo life let alone have one or more loves. Streamlining daily and weekly activities into shared ones could work. For example: sleeping, having coffee/tea/breakfast, doing yoga, meditating, walking, showering, watching movies, napping, internet surfing , cooking, cleaning, decluttering, organizing, taking spiritual/philosophical/inspirational classes, listening to MPR/NPR, "googling" and fact-checking/web-surfing, body, mind and spirit working and playing. (early November 2010)
I probably pretty fall short of my own profile in the relative (only to exceed it it in the Absolute;) Some of my profile indicates where I'm established and some of it where I aspire ... and I'm sure (to some perhaps) a portion may expose my ignorance & confusion, greed & lust, grievance and grudges (all of which I'm willing to forgive and transform into the Love That I Am/We Are/Is).
3/23/2011 I was just called by my doctor after a thorough check up with blood tests, she said everything was negative except that I was found to have the anti-bodies for herpes and that we still don't know what that means as I've never had a breakout. Later, in April I heard NPR's Science Friday do a story on Herpes: "According to a new study, people who test positive for herpes simplex virus-2 can shed the virus even though they have no symptoms. Infectious disease expert Dr. Peter Leone discusses how herpes is spread and whether people without symptoms should be tested for the virus."
http://www.npr.org/2011/04/15/135442942/even-without-symptoms-genital-herpes-can-spread (audio with written transcript) April 15, 2011. I was surprised when Dr. Leone stated that 50-70% of unmarried women in the 45-50 age bracket are HSV2 Positive.
This article was good too, clarifying a few things:

I just wanted to be up-front about this finding.
I've been celibate since early December 2010.
As yet I'm never had any symptoms of herpes.
... And I'm still celibate, patient yet anytime would be fine now for some fun.

Each day is an unprecedented opportunity for miracles and appreciating this precious human life is priority to me.
Blessed be and namaste
