Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
having just returned from two years of traveling, i'm really just
exploring nyc again. i'm finding all the things i love... and nyc
offers so much!!! i'm into the arts and cultural events but also
love going to parks and just walking around. eating food is
certainly one of the other activities i enjoy most.
so that's what i'm up to now, but here is a peek into who i am for
those that are interested...
i spend at least an hour ever day meditating. in fact, i just
returned from an intense vipassana meditation experience in burma
that very few individuals ever decide to experience. it changed me
a lot and my views on the world are also different. i try to look
at the world with compassion, generosity, and humility. i try not
to be led by desires, although that's impossible for me, so i try
to really just be balanced between a working life, social life,
family life, spiritual life, and alone time. it's working because
my life is peaceful and happy. so, i'm mostly romantically
attracted to people that are also happy with themselves, have found
that money isn't everything, are givers and share their compassion
in a gentle and kind manner. morality is important to me because it
guides us to be better people.... and that's what i'm always

Meditating! In fact, I just spent 9 months in Burma while

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
ok, this is weird... what could i actually never do without? well,
that's easy to answer. water, food.
my modern life makes me need:

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have experienced a lot. And I'm willing to share it with others.
I've overcome a lot and I find my past to be the most beautiful
blessing. When I compare myself to great figures in history, most
of them stay miserable. I have achieved a lot of peace (still
practicing to improve my peacefulness).
Here is what I will admit..
I will see your unhappiness and I will not try to fix you.
