Now, if by some wondrous and inexplicable force of compassion within you, you are SOMEHOW able to not judge me for accepting aid from my nation for an incurable and very debilitating disease, then thank you. You may have a shred of decency inside! I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but if your requirements for a spiritual partner go beyond, "I just want a stable guy with a car and a good job..." then we may be intellectually feasting on a similar mental buffet in our tasty world of being consciousness.. . . . .
I value peace, free time, kindness and ease. My paradigm was mostly shaped by Mahayana Buddhism. I have a deep interest in how identity becomes and maintains. To understand that I think I know myself when I truly have no idea why I even exist has enthralled me since I was a small child. I'm very intrigued by the nature of consciousness and I DON'T WORK, NOR WILL I IN THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. Sry, just want to be up front.
I've had a strong interest in cooking all my life. I use to make cookies when I was really young, like third grade. By high school I was roasting chickens, bbqing, and could even do a soufflé. Now, I feel confident to tackle anything. Lately I've been getting into stir fries and all things related to the wok. If you don't know what a wok is I'm not sure this will go anywhere...
I'm loving, present, and fairly uninhibited which has gotten me a great reputation as a solid sexual partner.
I like pushing boundaries, especially cultural taboos and crass jokes. I'm not scared of being laughed at and welcome people making fun of me so long as they attempt to be clever and not purely malicious :)
I started meditating ten years ago and now I don't think like most people. I think like people who meditate and seek to shape their experience of life
My dad was an english teacher, plus, I have an affinity for communication and expression. I enjoy conversation and I've read a lot about love, relationships, enlightenment, growth. I love wisdom, but I also just love language. To have these auditory symbols that we string together to form new concepts constantly has always intrigued me. We can read minds! You just have to talk for another person to know what you're thinking. Telepathy is real!!! ;)
child-like sense of wonder
American Beauty, American Pimp, The Secret
Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be (This is my bible and favorite self-help book. If you think self-help is cheesy, I pity you.)
Stuff by Daniel Pinchbeck and Terrence McKenna; my favorite describers of the psychedelic realms.
I'm fairly obsessed with Chali 2na; the deep voice in Jurassic 5
Positive tip hip hop is probably what I listen to most. I also enjoy world beat, Johnny Cash, 90s whatever, and, when I'm pissed, I'll throw on some Slipknot or Black Dahlia Murder. Occasionally, classical music, classical Indian (Ragas), and when I'm feeling especially cheesy, Yanni. Women who like indie rock by dudes who sound like they've been castrated will not find me appealing. I'm 6'2" and have a fairly deep, loud voice.
I either cook or do a frozen something. I cook a lot. Most days for sure.
Lettin' it rip (metaphorically speaking. Not a fart reference. We'd all die if we couldn't fart...)

How much control we have over our experience

You don't find silence awkward.
You like the devil's lettuce and find so many faults in our culture that you'd rather seem to be a rebel :)
