My self-summary
Clinging and craving lead to suffering

Suffering leads to the desire
for a way to be free of it

The desire for a way be free of suffering
leads to the desire for Truth

The desire for Truth
leads to Clarity

Clarity leads to Freedom

Thus the Way unfolds like a lotus
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to Beaverton to look for work, and hopefully finish school. Right now I'm looking for like minded people to spend time, converse, jam, and meditate with.

Six things I could never do without
Psychoactive substances
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Religion, psychology and philosophy are the gravitational centers of my thoughts these days. Specifically, pragmatic answers to the questions and problems these subjects pose.

Why so few women initiate conversations on dating sites.
On a typical Friday night I am
Smoking weed and listening to sad indie music
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been practicing the art of pretending to be okay for the entirety of my life. I am not okay. I've never been okay.

Just something I realized recently.
You should message me if
You want to spend time with me in real life (not interested in people who don't want to meet in person).

You want to explore yoga and meditation with me (been getting into both lately).

You like talking about ideas more than talking about people

You'd rather spend the day reading than partying
The two of us
