About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living the now! CARPE DIEM!

ABOUT ME

I'm an easy-going person, with sense of humor and generally speaking, I always see the positive side of everything. I've been working on myself so ethics and/or morality can fit everywhere. I'm interested in cultivating spirituality and I've had wonderful teachers in some Philosophical institutions. I love to travel and to discover different cultures and people. I love music, I took opera singing classes for 2 years and a half. I love Martial Arts, I have been to China to practice Shaolin Gong-fu five times since 1999. Currently I'm learning Capoeira (My lastname is Aydee). For me, everything's MIND. So I want to conquer my mind to conquer my body.

PHILOSOPHY

"Learn, as if you were to live forever, and live, as if you were to die tomorrow" Mahatma Gandhi. It doesn't matter where you were born, no matter the circumstances, you can always be a better person, if you take full responsibility. (Or you can become, at least, the person your dog thinks you are). I'm not limited by the beliefs or limitations of the world I live in, so I'm a rebel somehow, but always respectful and tolerant. To live life with love and passion, I was born to be alive! For me, is not important how long you live, but how much you enjoy. I never question myself if I'm on the right way, I just question myself if I'm having fun, if I'm enjoying life, I can't never be wrong. When you take a wrong choice in life, but you learn your lesson, then it was the righ one. I'm a warrior, the sword is my favourite weapon. Martial Arts are a way of life and your worst enemy are your bad habits and low passions. I'm 100% responsible of my life: My daily actions create my wonderful life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

The word "Action" means "high responsibility" for me, CouchSurfing allows for giving and taking to and for the right people, at the right time. Traveling should be an amazing experience for everyone and if I can help the visitors in my country to feel safe and happy, I will do what is needed. If for some reason I can't host, you can invite me to hang out with you, have a cup of coffee, or just a nice talk about my country just hit me up! I live to serve, therefore I serve to live. :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It all started because my family and I hosted several people from Japan long time ago. I was suscribed to a Japanese hosting site. It was really wonderful to show our mexican traditions and country, specially because most people have a general idea that sometimes is wrong. Most of the people I have met since then, went back to their countries with a very different idea from Mexico.

Interests

Reading, traveling, to continue learning. Ecoadventures, Martial Arts, Buddhism, dancing, hiking, music... Music, I took some singing classes to sing Opera, it was amazing. I'm learning how to play the guitar now, quite challenging, but as I love to sing, I need the companion. ;-) Martial Arts, I've learned Shaolin Gong-fu in China. Cross Fit, Kick Boxing, Capoeira. Buddhism as a philosofy in China, India, USA and Austria with Rimpoche Geshe Tenzin Dhargye. Motorcycles, my father is teaching me how to ride.

Music, Movies & Books

Dead Poet Society. American History X, What the !#$!#$ you know?, American Beauty. Avatar.

The Kybalion, Great Initiates, Autocouching, The Bible. Meditation from Osho, The book of the Life and Death. A course in Miracles. The Secret. War and Peace, Tolstoi. I love NLP.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

11 years ago I went to China for the firs time, and I was accepted by a Master of Shaolin Temple to learn Gongfu! I was crying! And the monks there were crying too! It was my childhood dream! I'm lucky I have achieved it. When my Tibetan teacher came to Mexico to visit me, we went to Malinalco (Archeologycal Site, the Temple of the Eagle and Jaguar Knights) and met the Shaman of this beautiful place, then the Shaman took us to a little cave, and they both were praying, the Shaman in Nahuatl (Ancient Mexican Language) first, then my Guru in Tibetan, amazing! My Tibetan name of the Shanga is: Tenzin Lhamo (India 2006). My chinese name is: Shi Miao Li. (China 2001). I'm a secular nun (no total vows, life is too fun, I just keep equilibrium in emotions and sins). I have many more, come and ask me!

Teach, Learn, Share

What I Can Share With Hosts

I live with a very nice roomie from Hamburg, Germany, she has a profile in CS too: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/boerdy her name is Birte and she is a very open, warm and easy-going person. Despite the fact that we had just moved and we don't have furniture yet, we can show you around, cook something for you or take you out for a meal. I love practising languages and Birte is more of the party type, so I'm sure you can hang around with either one or another. :-)
