I love everything about the Bay Area: weather, beautiful scenery, people, politics, fashion, music, diversity; the whole vibe. So, if you have a crush on the Bay like I do, we may hit it off...
I'm not going to go into great detail about what I want because when it comes down to it, it's all fairly simple: I want and need deep love, friendship and compatibility with my future partner. However, as my body, mind and soul continue to evolve, the stuff that constitutes each continually becomes more and more complex for me; and although this may show my growth, it kind of makes it more difficult to make true connections; find love.
I do know that I want to live peacefully and simply without succumbing to the pretenses of this society. I don't want to be beholden to money and the material - it has never made me happy. I want to find meaning and fulfillment through the relationships I build, the people I help, the work I do, the natural world I continually explore, and the community I live in. I do want to live fully in the present and allow myself to experience all that comes with that, which to me is not only taking pleasure in the joys, but respecting the inevitable suffering even in the worst of times - it's actually an ironic gift because you learn so much about yourself and that is always a good thing.
Don't get me wrong, living by this philosophy is not easy to do; I find myself sometimes regressing back into former thoughts and patterns despite all the progressing. Ahh, it's about the journey anyway...
So, guys, that''s really what I am after and I am hoping to find someone like-minded in this way! :)
