I am Auroraboros, the author for all of the pieces here (aside from collaborations). My name is a portmanteau of Aurora (a nod to my favorite celestial phenomenon) and Ouroboros (a nod to the Great Snake itself).
My name is Andrew, by birth, but I have a variety of identities and as such go by many other names, such as Auroraboros, Aurora, or pretty much any variation of the color Blue. I absolutely love the color Blue, and you will find it everywhere in my life and my work. It is almost unhealthy how much I love Blue. 💙
I am based out of Saint Paul, Minnesota, though I was born in Idaho and grew up out there until my parents divorced when I was around 10 years old. I have traveled a bit, and hope to travel more, to see the world and learn more about it and the people who occupy it.
Meditation is a very important part of my life and element of my self-care, particularly Transcendental Meditation. I practice regularly and one of my many passions is helping to support others in finding peace and contentment through meditation and mindfulness as well.
I am a being with ever-evolving identity. I identify as non-gender binary, though I am of the male sex. This is, despite how such things are often perceived, actually a part of my active spiritual pursuit of Truth and Divinity and not so much related to my sexuality. I find that the gender binary is restrictive, prone to toxicity, and all too entrenched in sexual pitfalls to facilitate true connections with others beyond the superficial. As such, I reject this notion and choose to live however I am inspired to live, to love as I am inspired to love, and in doing so, find the divine that lives in each and every one of us through kindness, respect, and mutual understanding.
My primary mission in life is quite simple: to find my destiny as the Divine wills it, while showing kindness and compassion to as many people as I can along the way. I hope some day to meet someone who I can show this love to and bring into my life as a partner, but I am still working to refine my understand of love and ensure that I can provide for this person the right level of support and love that is appropriate.
If you would like to know me, please read through a few of my poems. They are my heart and soul. If you learn anything, please let me know. 🙂
People and Connections
My people are my life. I am so very grateful for all of the people in my life, each and every one. You mean the world to me, and I would be where I am without you. I love you all so much.
I frequently collaborate with others. If you would like to work on a piece, or would just like to connect, please visit Connect with Auroraboros.
