September 2016 - Taking a Break
~ Namaste ~
Are you blissfully aware that the Universe is perfect the way it is?
Do you still have a compelling passion to pretend to save the world?
If these questions resonate with you, you might enjoy reading on. If they don't you've been warned . . . free thinking abounds here and it may look or feel or seem like unsafe waters . . .

I've had the gift of living many lifetimes this lifetime, and I anticipate I still have many more to come. I helped form a non-profit a few years ago that teaches children peace skills, and now I run another non-profit that works with healing the child in all of us. I like traveling and have been to Africa, Asia, South America, and the Middle East. Meeting someone who considers themselves an adventurer would be an important part of making a connection. Maintaining good health is important to me and I try to eat healthy.
Yoga and Kirtan are a big part of my life, and I enjoy more activities than I can count . . . biking, camping, canoeing, skiing (liquid and solid - well, soft solid), hiking, running, jet skiing, working out in the gym, aerobics, tennis, golf, horseback riding, whatever! I like most all music and like to sing. I enjoy meaningful conversations over a quiet dinner or a walk in the park (the mountains would be better and the beach even better). I also enjoy live theater and art. In general I just enjoy, and see, the beauty in life. I'm a very affectionate person and like cuddling up with someone special to talk, to watch a movie, or to just be quiet and watch the sun set. I'm pretty easy going, have a good sense of humor, enjoy the excitement of life, and like to laugh and smile a lot :o)
Learning and growing spiritually are central to my experience of life. I believe we are all spiritual beings having a human experience and in spirit we are all connected, and I try to live every aspect of my life with this in mind. I usually have four or five books going at the same time. Some of my favorite books are The Celestine Prophecy, Mutant Message Down Under, The Four Agreements, At Peace in the Light, The Lightworkers Way, A Bridge Across Forever, Conversations with God, Three Cups of Tea, A Course in Miracles, The Invitation, The Journey, Getting the Love You Want, and a wide variety of other stuff. I'm involved in various activities that support my spiritual growth and like sharing ideas with others that are open minded about life.
Someone once told me, about half a life-time ago, that great relating is composed of three things: awesome friendship, common life goals, and incredible sex. Many years later I think this is what that means to me . . .
Awesome Friendship . . . Emotional authenticity and freedom of expression and compassionate support. Sharing in ways that support spiritual growth and expansion in our views of ourselves and the world. A common spiritual connection and heart-opening sharing and experiencing of God/Source/Oneness/Life Force/Chi as what we all are in our essence. A compassionate love and patient understanding of each other’s human emotional challenges and the ability to sit in the wisdom of knowing all things are perfect whether we are experiencing that in the moment or not.
Common Life Goals . . . I resonate with this quote in terms of common goals for relating, “If you both agree at a conscious level that the purpose of your relationship is to create an opportunity, not an obligation—an opportunity for growth, for full Self expression, for lifting your lives to their highest potential, for healing every false thought or small idea you ever had about you, and for ultimate reunion with God through the communion of your two souls—if you take that vow instead of the vows you’ve been taking—the relationship has begun on a very good note.” Neal Donald Walsh. For common goals in life what comes to me right now is loving self and others, living our passions in ways that serve ourselves and humanity, and remembering we all made up of perfect God stuff - - - spiritual beings having a human experience. Being in service is really my life path and sharing passionate conversations of doing that in ways that are most empowering to others really spins my top :o)
