My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am grateful that you are visiting my profile.

I took the opportunity to incarnate with a group of around 50 to get the Internet up as soon as possible. That work is done. I sold all my Internet stock (except for IBM), but kept the house in Southlake. It was never revealed to me what the hurry was for. My life path number is 33. The soul, having this number, returns voluntarily to raise the human race to a higher level of understanding of the meaning of love. Despite my awareness, I am also grounded. My personal philosophy is transcendental pragmatism; feet on the ground, head in the stars; an Angel with a business plan.

On this plane of existence, I enjoy movies, opera, and concerts. From Billy Joel to Beethoven, Mozart to the Motown. I just attended the “Rocky Horror Show”, at the Wyly in Dallas. I highly recommend it! Recent trips this past 15 months: Pagosa Springs, Chicago, Venice, Italy; Washington D.C., Toronto, Canada. Recent Books: “11 Days in May", "Comfortable with Uncertainty”, “The Power of Now”; “Biology of Belief”, "Buddha's Brian", "Heaven is for Real", I go to “chick flicks”. Although the “Twilight” movies about killed me :-). San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the U.S., I think it's because my chances of getting a date are double. :-) LOL.

The boys are grown and in college. However, I am very involved with their continued development.

I have a pool that has just been resurfaced, it would enjoy more use. The basics are very well established; steady job at the same company for the last 10 years, drug fee, all with warmth and humor. I worked for Johnson and Johnson and IBM in the past. I have traveled over 2 million miles, but I am no longer on the road. By the way, that makes me permanent platinum, no waiting to board a flight with me! I have a ton of up upgrade stickers. However, the frequent flyer miles are all used. I love to travel; well maybe I have enough for one more trip, are you ready? Is your passport up to date? Seriously, is it?

As you may have guessed, I have a spiritual side, and meditate daily. I have been doing it for over 39 years. I have been known to hang out with yogis and live with monks. My undergraduate university had meditation built into the daily routine. Jim Carry did the commencement address there this year. Google it, "Jim Carry commencement", it's very funny and profound at the same time.

I have gone years, at times, without any illness. When I wake in the morning or after I meditate, I here "music", some say it is the sound the planets make as they fly through space, others the great OM, I tend to agree with Wayne Dryer's view that it's an auditory connection to Source. However, it makes little difference in paying off the mortgage. It started when I was 22 years old, during a long meditation retreat. But my real gratitude goes to Patanjali for his yoga sutras. The is something about seeing the entire universe from the inside out, then going to work, that cannot be put into words. Consciousness is the underlying reality of this universe; love and laughter are its fundamental ingredients.

I prefer to go out with souls who reach out to me, send me a message! Accept on rare occasions, I do not make the first move. I get tired of being a "suspect", just because I am using this platform to meet someone. I used to be a Cub Scout Master; I think those people checked me out more than IBM! However, given all the work I have done for the Internet, I have a strong feeling it will return the favor, maybe it's you? If your vibration stirs you, reach out to me, I will respond. I respect all traditions. But be prepared for someone who can see past your outer form, and into your soul.

This profile is deactivated most of the time. If you're seeing it now, there is likely a reason; synchronicity, if you prefer.

I realize this profile is long relative to others. That's somewhat by design. I have several master's degrees (Child Psychology, Management Information System, and I am close to finishing my MBA), so getting through this indicates a certain level of Intelligence or at least perseverance. Hey, I am not just a pretty face :-) Although, at my age I have come to realize that a refined heart is more essential than a keen intellect. My FICO score is 844. Speaking of scores, if our match score is below 80 %, or if the enemy score is high we probably will not click. I used to teach statistics. However, if you have a very strong feeling we should meet, I would go with that.

Thanks for the visit; you are a divine, unique, individual. I hope to hear from you.

I am currently looking for some who wants to go with me to the TCU TT game on October 25. I have seats on the TCU side. Time is relative, so take the time to make the first move.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning how to run/create a non profit organization. I recently built a large meditation hall on my estate.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening.

I guess men do not really listen. I often get "wow, you’re a good listener" I have been dating on and off for a while now, and this is such a common comment that I felt compelled to put this in. It's always been natural for me to listen, understand first, and talk later. I often “coach” my son’s on how women need to “detail” their day or situation, but do not need you to “fix” anything. The metaphor that seems to work for them is this: when your girlfriend starts to talk, image you are getting on roller coaster with her. Enjoy the ride, but you will end up at the same place you started. No need to fix the situation, but she will appreciate that you jumped on the ride with her ... Yes I did learn a few things from being married for over twenty years ... Most of them happy!

Even though I travel a lot, I have little baggage. To explain:

"A senior monk and a junior monk were traveling together. At one point, they came to a river with a strong current. As the monks were preparing to cross the river, they saw a very young and beautiful woman also attempting to cross. The young woman asked if they could help her. The senior monk carried this woman on his shoulder, forded the river and let her down on the other bank. The junior monk was very upset, but said nothing. They both were walking and the senior monk noticed that his junior was silent for most of the day and enquired “Is something the matter, you seem very upset?” The junior monk replied, “As monks, we are not permitted to touch a woman, how could you then carry that woman on your shoulders?” The senior monk replied, “I left the woman a long time ago at the bank, however, you seem to be carrying her still.”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music .. Somewhere in time I started moving my CDs and vinyls to iTunes. I have in the neighborhood hood of 2,400 song (and not everything is converted). I pipe them over the my intranet to my stereo system. As I review my collection I am clearly a child of the 70 and 80s (to a lesser extent, the 60s). The collection includes: the Stones, the Boss, Streisand, Midler, Cher, Dixie Chicks, the Beatles, James Taylor, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Rod Stewart, the Beach Boys, U2, Devo ("whip it good" .. who remembers that one? LOL), Willie Nelson, Jonny Cash, ... need I go on. There is also a Motown component, The Supremes, the Big Chill album. However, I also like classical music: Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, and Chopin. On the spiritual side I often find myself playing "new age music", Celtic harps, and the Chant CD (Benedictine Monks). Looking at this, I am at a loss as to what to make of this, I guess I leaving it as an "exercise to the reader".

I own an extensive library some where in the neighborhood of 800 or so books. Recent readings: Buddha Brain, Biology of Belief, The Power of now, The Brian that Changes it Self, Tough Love, William James Psychology, Heaven is for Real, A few Tom Clancy's books, "Blink" - and other of Malcolm Glandwell books, Bad Money - Kevin
Phillips. I purchased one of the first eReader that Jeff Bezos created. I often give them away as gifts. I have the Wall Street journal delivered .. For some reason I like to have the paper addition ..

Most of my daily content is from the web, I love the Ted lectures:
My current favorite is the from the neuroanatomist

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The joy of that comes from Being, some call it Ananda, my boys, although they are men now, the stars, soft mud ozzing between my toes, hugs from my friends. Oh, yea, maybe my iPhone 6 if they ever ship the damn thing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the universe is expanding in to? What would someone who loves themselves do? What would someone who love others do? How is IBM stock doing?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work in Fort Worth. Friday night's often finds me attending a Bass Hall performance or one of the "Off Broadway" venues such as the Circle Theater. Sundance square has fee parking in the evening and there is lots to do in this area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been wearing the same style of socks to work for 5 years. Oh my, I feel a need to explain this. Well, it all started with the Laundry God. It seemed that every time I washed my clothes, a sock came back missing. Research on the Internet (always credible) yielded that the Laundry God, has a male personification; the Washer Machine. It runs hot and cold, does a lot at thrashing, and can't be disturbed during a football game. Then there is the Female personification; the Dryer, warm and stable, but can get hot quick if she is not treated right or taken for granted! My spiritual friends were surprised that I did not know you had to perform a periodic sock sacrifice to appease them. Ok, me being a transcendental pragmatist, and a busy single Dad at the time, I decided to buy a box of socks. When I say box, I mean 40 pairs of the same style. So now when the sacrifice happens, I no longer care. I never match them up; harmony and balance is restored back to the universe, they get their sock and I get the repeated time savings from not having to match them!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you like to travel or your interested in going to the DMA or the Kimbel, I have memberships to both. Also, I am alway looking for someone to go to the theater with (The Opera, Bass Hall, or the ATT Perfoming Art center). Liking to ski, meditate, or scuba would be a plus! If you're a meditator, I'll take to to Paris!
