My self-summary
We all desire freedom from suffering, and the only way to truly free ourselves from the cycle of suffering is to embrace the inseverable connection between all opposites. Once these connections are perceived and understood, the path to nirvana will naturally unfold like a lotus.

Desire leads to suffering

Suffering leads to the desire
for a way to end suffering

The desire for a way to end suffering
leads to the desire for truth

The desire for truth
leads to wisdom

Wisdom leads to nirvana
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.

Update: Just moved from Beaverton to
SW Portland; it feels so good to finally be back in the city I was born in. City of Roses, oh how I hath pined for thee!
I’m really good at
Playing guitar, singing, dancing, sneaking up on people unintentionally (I guess I walk very quietly), making observations no one else thinks of, changing topics without warning.

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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting stoned and watching documentaries; I've already memorized the theme music for NOVA and PBS.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I feel a strong affinity with Sherlock Holmes, especially his most recent incarnation in the BBC series. His observations and opinions on people are uncannily similar to mine.

I consider myself a sexual switch. I'm not into hardcore bdsm, but I enjoy being both dominant and submissive in a general sense. I'd love to find someone to explore the outer limits of my sexual deviance with someday.
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

Message me if you embrace weirdness and despise superficiality.
