As many of us worldwide shut our doors and prepared to enter what could perhaps be the longest period of social isolation of our lives, I phoned up my beloved friend and colleague, Jason Tantra, at his home in Bristol, United Kingdom on April 7th.
I have many reasons to call on Jason. For one thing, I love his sense of humor and deeply admire his ability to organize the world's largest network of Gay Tantra teachers and activists...But called him on this day with a very explicit agenda: To find out what MOTIVATES him the most. I wanted to know that could motivate someone to invest countless hours and dollars in creating the world's first conscious dating app for gay men, and then to invite every teacher he loves to join him there and advertise our wares.
Here’s what I learned in the hour I shared with Jason, with seagulls calling to us from beyond his windows:
We are evolving the way we define relationships. We’re now experiencing a global transition in the way we relate to one another as gay and bi men….
That battlefield you see outside of yourself is YOU.
How you judge and assess everything is YOU,
and the only way we are EVER going to make a difference in this world is to find LOVE…
Not just that “special someone,” but first…the love in our hearts, to transform our existence from the inside-out.
Jason, in one of his moments of infinite wisdom, said these words: ”One of the greatest freedoms is knowing you have a choice how you wish to perceive, and how you wish to be in the world. For me, that is the ultimate truth. We keep getting it tested. As humans EVOLVE, we keep having tested what we thought we were, to break us into a new paradigm or a new evolution of what we can be. The one thing for me that has led through all of that time is LOVE. That’s why I do what I do. Trust me…it’s not for the money.”
Beloved friends and colleagues, feast your ears upon the creator of the world’s first conscious dating app for gay men, Jason Tantra.
