coming back here after a long time, words feel awkward, maybe more of the essence is to be found between the lines, this essence that lies at the level of the energy we exude, of how our spirit really relates to the 'outside' world, how we deal with obstacles and with our own wants and resolves, how and why some important aspects of ourselves take over in some situations, or how they fluctuate, these are much harder to pinpoint than compatibility at the levels of likes and ideas. If I would know how to convey that 'essence' that remains constant in the flow of life it would give hints at what can emerge.
I can only say that I place Compassion and Loving Kindness at the center. They give life and sense to daily experiences, and in turn bring clearer motivation and direction. I have a positive outlook and a kind of feeling of being connected in this 'here and now', grounded and somehow responsible. My journey so far has brought me to embrace Buddhist philosophy, to become vegan and adopt some other healthy practices... I like music and traveling (I am in Vietnam presently). This call to explore stems from early on. I've been an observer and a passionate explorer/experimenter since childhood, seeking understandings from people, from cultures and from Nature. I like to be with Nature, feeling the ground, contemplating, being part of this flow, of this exchange of energy to finally find my place in the present moment and to connect with who I was meant to become figuring out what I can do.
I'm easy-going, cheerful and often quiet, but also outgoing and really free and open to possibilities life has to offer. I have no fear or regrets other than having lost time. Mother-Earth is sick now and I feel an urgency. I would like to contribute to some projects that could generate enough power to change globally the ways of our world. I am now writing a book in the hope it will have some impact. I feel that worldwide the space allowed for greed to grow and the tools we give it to take gigantic and devastating proportions have to be narrowed down, and space for Awareness, Justice, Freedom and Love widened. Humans have destructive ways and effective solutions for our global mess would involve a complete redrawing of our society where those who are above would not get the means anymore to get so much above. Almost all the solutions we hear about simply aim at delaying an unavoidable end. Our sacred infinite potential in a messed-up world governed by greed! Things get incredibly complex and confusing, but there are solutions and as long as we can create space for happiness, peace, and creative fun, the drive to make things better will remain and with time something positively meaningful will be achieved.
I have no criteria, though of course I can see that some things cannot be otherwise, that for example, you are vegan (or on the way to be vegan) for reasons beyond your personal health (no matter how it started), that you are generally positive and have the tendency to go out of your way if it is bound to make meaningful differences for others, that you are active or inclined (at least wishing) to get socially involved, that you are independent yet feeling at times strongly connected to the whole world, to the whole universe, keeping alive a sense of adventure and readiness to step out of comfort zones, even to be ready to jump both feet off and leave everything behind if that leap of faith becomes necessary for another reality to emerge. You can deal with some agitation that may be involved when on some social projects. It would be nice to be with a dedicated life partner who has a similar (yet your own) vision and understanding of where we stand in life and what is asked of us, going hand in hand towards a goal that we will first have to commonly define and that can go way beyond local projects.
Don't hesitate to contact me if this resonates with you, in all simplicity, I love to hear different point of views about deep issues related to living in this world.
