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.
Zen / yogic
Integrally oriented, eclectic, INFP, neopagan, a Seven (7) the Epicure/Adventurer in the Enneagram
Aquarius Rising. Moon in Pisces. Sun in the sign of Leo on the Leo/Virgo cusp on the descendant in the seventh house.
Interested in friends, playmates ...lovers especially within these nakshatra signs as described in Vedic/Jyotish Astrology. Jyeshta, Purva Phalguni, Magha, Shatabhiskak, and Anuradha are the 5 most compatible Nakshatra ☆signs for me, eg. (numbered in order of compatibility with Magha) #1 Jyeshta (Dec 2nd-15th within Western zodiac 12°40' - 26° Sagittarius), #2 Purva Phalguni (Aug 30th-Sept 13th within Western zodiac 9°20' - 22°40' Virgo), #3 Magha, like me (Aug 16th-30th within Western zodiac 26° Leo - 9°20' Virgo), #4 Shatabhiskak (Feb 19-Mar 4th within Pisces) ... #5 Anuradha (Nov 22nd-Dec 2nd within Western zodiac 29°20' Scorpio - 12°40' Sagittarius).
And as far as the Chinese Zodiac: I'm a Fire Goat/Sheep/Ram
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, thanks in part to this fellow:
Sometimes I go to Unity Christ Church http://www.unitychristchurch.org/about/faq
and the Zen Center
Polymorphic Monotheistic and/or an Interconnective Polytheistic, Pantheist, and appreciate paganism, agnosticism, and compassionate multidimensional atheism as well. Integral Spirituality. I can appreciate traditions and rituals from time to time as provisional activities... Although I prefer direct experience :-)
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.
Confronting the Clear Light
"Now I am experiencing the Clear Light of objective reality. Nothing is happening, nothing ever has happened or ever will happen. My present sense of self, the voyager, is in reality the void itself, having no qualities or characteristics. I remember myself as the voyager, whose deepest nature is the Clear Light itself; I am one; there is no other. I am the voidness of the void, the eternal unborn, the uncreated, neither real nor unreal. All that I have been conscious of is my own play of consciousness, a dance of light, the swirling patterns of light in infinite extension, endless endlessness, the Absolute beyond change, existence, reality. I, the voyager, am inseparable from the Clear Light; I cannot be born, die, exist, or change. I know now that this is my true nature."
This reading is extracted from The American Book of the Dead and presented here for the benefit of all beings everywhere. Read it in the midst of vast congregations. Read it to heal the sick. Read it to instruct the elderly. Read it for the dead or dying even though they don't know it is being read for them -- your prayers and reading are helping them to attain liberation. For further reference see The American Book of the Dead.
Walking home from the YWCA on 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.
It was a nice way to take the chill off the walk.
When I get around to it I think I'll utilize:
OkCupid hacks: Five lessons from a math genius
I had answered over 5000 some OkCupid questions, recently I've begun to remove some my answers to some of the Q/A I find unimportant.
I was 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 upfront about this finding.
I was celibate from early December 2010 til September 2014. . then rejoining tantric unions with a wonderful dakini friend ☆
Who as of December fifth is enjoying Hawaii for 3 months requesting that I enjoy other goddesses ♡
No longer celibate as of September 7th, 2014 :-)
Except in the sense that Swami Rama perhaps implied with: "I only have sex when I'm celibate, I only eat when I'm fasting, and I only speak when I'm silent."
My recent beloved Is now in Hawaii for 3 months and said she hopes my experiences with new goddesses divinely tantric ♡ I miss her yet I'll trust the Great Goddess.
I took the Belief-O-Matic™ Quiz
from the site:
"Even if YOU don't know what faith you are, Belief-O-MaticTM knows. Answer 20 questions about your concept of God, the afterlife, human nature, and more, and Belief-O-Matic™ will tell you what religion (if any) you practice...or ought to consider practicing."
My most recent results as of Oct 5th 2012:
Unitarian Universalism (92%)
New Age (91%)
Liberal Quakers (90%)
Mahayana Buddhism (84%)
Theravada Buddhism (70%)
Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (64%)
New Thought (60%)
Secular Humanism (60%)
Reform Judaism (48%)
Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (42%)
Orthodox Quaker (40%)
Baha'i Faith (34%)
Seventh Day Adventist (26%)
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (16%)
Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (15%)
Orthodox Judaism (15%)
Jehovah's Witness (8%)
Eastern Orthodox (5%)
Roman Catholic (5%)
The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.
Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

Food: As time and money can allow I choose Blood Type A friendly foods that are generally pitta pacifying and that tend toward decreased suffering and increased consciousness and enjoyment. As best I can I choose organic foods within ER4YT, some eggs and egg makers eg. fish, turkey and chicken throughout the month, otherwise I tend toward being Vegan, Vegetarian, ayurvedic (I'm a pitta, pitta-vata), and I have a bit of a wheat and dairy sensitivity. I like a variety of cuisines, but especially Indian, Italian, Thai, Mexican, and whatever I or a loved one creates with love and joy. Sometimes I'm seasonal and can enjoy the current holiday dish, bread (esp sprouted grain) and dessert like ice cream and/or brownies. I've heard '80% whole food and 20% "soul food', so I may have some extra special treats and cheesy mac (et al) a couple times a year. All things in moderation. (finances have sometimes influenced my food purchases)

"Hemp is the standard fiber of the world. It has great tensile strength and durability. It is used to produce more than 5,000 textile products ranging from rope to fine laces, and the woody 'hurds' remaining after the fibers have been removed can be used to produce more than 25,000 products." --Popular Mechanics, 1938

this poem by Hafiz:
*Why Aren't We Screaming Drunk?*
The sun once glimpsed God's true nature And has never been the same.
Thus that radiant sphere Constantly pours its energy Upon this earth As does He from behind The veil.
With a wonderful God like that Why isn't everyone screaming drunk?
Hafiz's guess is this:

doing a lazy yoga,
being a psychonaut and an Oneironaut ☆
It depends...sensual, tantric, creative, communion is preferred. NeuroSomatic Fusion/ Tantra in novel, energetic ways, sharing charismatic beauty, reflecting upon the Vishuddha Chakra/5th Circuit Neuro-Sensory-Somatic Intelligence in myself, close others, humans in general (especially Hippies, Yogis, and Tantric Yogis). Sometimes I'm doing a massage, or at the Spiritual Cinema, or walking enjoying a sunset / sunclipse and contemplating sunsets / sunclipses, Vision Logic, Autumn equinox sabbath and season. Remembering Freyja / Freya and Venus and Lakshmi, GodDeuses of Love and Beauty within the heart and throat of song and rapture ... (occasionally "high as a kite")
Wondering how it is that I'm not doing/having any of the aforementioned, and how/what I can be/do to make sure I'm having some fun enjoying and sharing it with others (even a simple thought in solitude 'may all share in this peace and joy and bliss')
Welcoming change and rejoicing in the new (and/or nude;)

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. Maybe I'm immune, maybe I've got it, maybe I don't. I was surprised to find out that 20% of adults have herpes. I just wanted to be upfront about this recent finding.
I was celibate from early December 2010 til September 2014.
There are (k)no(w) private thoughts.
I aspire in all my actions and interactions with others to come from Pure Motivation and Intention to decrease suffering and increase happiness for All Beings in all times and places.
I'm astounded, embarrassed, and amused how often or quickly I forget this. I'm delighted, grateful, and at peace when I remember
I like to websurf...especially in dreamtime.
if you appreciate the Good, the True and the Beautiful manifesting from within to bless the world and all beings ...
if you'd like to trade some massage, share an oxytocin hug (that is: hugging for a minimum of 20 seconds to trigger an increase of oxytocin and a decrease in the stress hormone cortisol), have tea/coffee/mocha..., take a nature [[walk], see a $2 movie etc ...
if we have a higher match percentage than 75% ... a 100% would be fun.
☆if you are one of Magha's compatibles (I'm a Magha) in the Vedic Nakshatra ☆signs Nakshatras, the moon mansions of Jyotish (Vedic Astrology).
Which Nakshatra the natal Sun is in is considered one of the best indicators of personality, compatibility and spiritual mission. , see: Komilla Sutton's "Vedic Love Signs" and "Vedic Astrology") : Jyeshta, Purva Phalguni, Magha, and Shatabhiskak are the most compatible Nakshatra ☆signs for me, eg. (numbered in order of compatibility with my Magha) #1 Jyeshta (Dec 2nd-15th within Western zodiac 12°40' - 26° Sagittarius), #2 Purva Phalguni (Aug 30th-Sept 13th within Western zodiac 9°20' - 22°40' Virgo), #3 Magha, like me (Aug 16th-30th within Western zodiac 26° Leo - 9°20' Virgo), #4 Shatabhiskak (Feb 19-Mar 4th within Pisces) ... #5 Anuradha (Nov 22nd-Dec 2nd within Western zodiac 29°20' Scorpio - 12°40' Sagittarius), #6 Mula (Dec 15th-28th Western zodiac 26° Sagittarius - 9°20' Capricorn), #7 Chitra (Oct 10th-23rd Western zodiac: 19°20' Libra - 2°40' Scorpio), #8 Ardra (June 21-July 5th Western zodiac: 2° 40' - 16° Cancer) and #9 Mrigasira (June 8th-21st Western zodiac: 19°20' Gemini - 2°40' Cancer). For me those are the top 9 most mutually compatible of the 27 Nakshatras of the Vedic Jyotish Astrological system.
I'm especially interested in the top 4 ¤
Jyeshta, Purva Phalguni, Magha, and Shatabhiskak, which are the most sexually and spiritually compatible with my sign of Magha☆.
if you can understand that I love people and especially beautiful, kind, and intelligent women...since there are so many in this world I choose to focus on the most compatible sexually, personally,and spiritually. This site, the Nakshatras (Vedic star signs), Myers-Briggs, Enneagram, and the like tend to give me some clue to ensure mutual satisfaction and delight.
if you are a yogini ... and want to explore tantra in some form.
if we might share entheogenic/oneirogenic/salviac/tantric/yogic/zen experience.
if you can get me to bed earlier (before 11PM) for tantric meditation, yoga nidra and lucid dreaming and get me up early (after 3 AM and before Sunrise) for more bliss in tantric zazen and yoga/chi gung and walking. (I've spent time on the internet when dreaming and other shared activities would be more worthwhile).
if you are somewhat (or completely) kinky, kind, intelligent, spiritual, meditative, yogic, shamanic, pagan, wiccan, contemplative, metaphysical, integral, nondual, miracle minded, lucid, tantric, psychedelic/Entheogenic, and enjoy trading massages and going on nature walks et cetera ...
And/or, if I am a male version of you ... possibly an ideal match/friend.
If you think this is for you:
