Hi, I'm Green Sky.

My general age is late 20s to early 30s.

I was born and raised in The Valley [San Fernando Valley California] and I've spent my whole adult life in Orange County.

I spend my time reading books, studying for fun.

I'm half Asian and half White. My mother is Asian.

And so, like my ethnicity, my religious and spiritual stuff is mixed. I was raised an Animist-Buddhist by my Asian family, and I still am half Buddhist. "Half Buddhist" meaning that even if I'm not a Buddhist, my Asian culture is still Buddhist.

The Western half of me became interested in Witchcraft when I was 13, and when I turned 14 I read The Satanic Bible and have been a Satanist ever since. 

I am also a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. I'm currently merely a Bard. I like Druidry and I'd like to learn more about it, the ancient Druids as well as the contemporary neo-Druids.

My spiritual practices consists of understanding that all things in nature have a spirit/mind (the animist in me). I practice meditation (the Buddhist in me). I see the world as a non-theist and from the perspective of materialism (the Buddhist and Satanist in me). And I practice what I've learned as a Bard of a neo-druid group (the Pagan in me). And I practice magic and sorcery with the spirits of nature (the animist and pagan in me).

I like cartomancy. I read poker cards. I also like to read the Lenormand cards as well as the Italian Sibilla.

My hobby is reading. I love to read. I have a personal goal of reading 1000 Kindle books. Right now, I have bought and read 828. It's an expensive hobby :)

That's it. I just wanted to say hello to everyone. Hope to meet and get to know some of you!

I have similar ethnic background, and mix a few things too. From the Asian side I take most of my inspiration from Daoism though I have a lot of respect for the Buddhist tradition, particularly the Huayan school. From the West I love Platonism and its various mutations over the centuries, including in Christianity. I also love Celtic mythology. More and more my spiritual inspiration comes from poetry and storytelling more than overtly religious expressions. Overall my favorite modern branch of western esotericism is surrealism.

Wow, similar ethnic background and spiritual background! Nice to meet you. My Asian family is mostly Chinese, so I do like Taoism and the folk Chinese culture. I live a couple miles from Hsi Lai Temple! I like Plato also, he contributed a lot to Christianity. I also like esoterism myself! We have a lot in common :)
