"I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree in North Carolina on a cold winter moonlit night. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don't worry. It's all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don't know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It's a dream already ended. There's nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about. I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born.” ~ Jack Kerouac
There is WAY more to me than just a few words on my profile, or multiple choice questions. You can't really gauge real chemistry from a few 2D images and multiple choice questions. Yet I figured I'd try this platform to meet some women of substance and maturity outside of my current circles. My friend Sophie wrote to me: "You always bring a little spice, a little sass, and a lot of sauce. You've perfected that special combo of sacred and hilariously profane....no one does it quite like you do". So that's me! I'm new-ish to the East Bay and originally from Boston. I'm as genuine and deep as they come. What's the point in putting on a front? WE'RE ALIVE!! Isn't that amazing??
I am multifaceted: Sweet with an edge, confident yet humble, sensitive yet strong, compassionate and intuitive, caring and generous. At times I'm funny, wild and boisterous, others I can be more quiet and contemplative. I'm " in tune" with my own and others' emotional nature, and I know what it means to be a "balanced man" - when to hold space and listen, and when to take charge. I'm committed to authenticity and transparency and I'm always finding ways to increase my mindfulness, gratitude and reverence.
