I am an ideator and a challenger of ideas, biased towards action. I want to be the source of aha! moments for myself, and others I meet/work/live with.
My purpose is to create evolved confusion leading towards action and harmony - I want to do it through ideas, enterprise and teaching.
The problems that hurt me are cruelty and rigidity - most intensely in gender politics and animal rights.
Travel makes me happy, because it makes me meet me and connects me to the common soul we share - it helps me move, move, move.
Love, for me, can be a million things - faith and faithlessness, intimacy and distance, teaching and learning, truths and lies, transience and permanence.
I am willing to look like a fool pursuing what my heart tugs me towards, I am willing to disappoint another if it means being true to myself.
An Ideal Day In My Life
If I Were A Listicle
- I love animals. All animals. Just ask these guys: https://www.instagram.com/p/3arF92Hlkg/?taken-by=aarshiya_lovespixie
- I describe my creative process thus: Procrastinate for days and call it gestation. Write everything down in one burst and stick with it and call it inspiration.
I have gone deep-sea diving in 3 countries, and jumped off a cliff in 9.
