Here I am, arriving on the moon drenched in water (don’t ask, we’ll get to that) when I see someone crawl out of a painting.  The first thing in my mind: well that’s something you don’t see every day.

A person just contorting their way between the frame of a painting, and landing nigh flat, in nigh perfect balance.  In.  High.  Heels.  It was a miracle she didn’t stumble.  Hell, I don’t know how women do it. 

She looks at me, as I’m drenched in water, and asks, “So, guess you didn’t know about the painting trick huh?”
“I prefer going for a swim, personally.”
“What route did you take?”
The Airport
The Train Station
The Pentagon
Lemuria
Machu Picchu
The Local Starbucks
The Great Pyramid
The Bookstore
The Louvre
Atlantis
“The local pond.”
She suppresses a laugh, and says “You’re kidding” as she gives me the most quizzical expression with her hands on her hips.
“Just like it sounds.  I figured out you can get to the moon through the local pond.  It’s a stargate in disguise, so easy to hide.”
“Figures.  You learn something new every day I guess.”

“Anyways, so – “ I was about to ask…
“Don’t ask,” was the curt reply.
“Fine, I won’t.”

A minute passed by as we just took in the vast expanse of space.

“What are you thinking about?” she inquired.
“And I quote, ‘don’t ask’”
“Why do you have to be so rude?”
“Says the Ice Queen,”
“Hey water works, shut it,” she snapped off.
“I was just giving you a dose of – “

I was cut off by a slow raising of ‘the finger’.  No, no, no, not the middle finger.  The international “Shut the f@#$ up sign” index finger.  My hands raised in resignation and I gave in.

Fine” I said.
“Fine.”

Tens minutes later…

“So – “ Instantly couldn’t resist.
“Don’t,”
“You know I’m going to ask.“
“Fine, get it over with,” she finally gave in.

But I just started off into space.

Turning her head slowly at an angle, she glares at me impatient.  Very impatient. 

“Well aren’t you going to ask?”

I just nod slowly over the horizon.  She glances left, and we just stare in awe.

She eagerly quotes, “Well that’s not something you see every day.”
“Wait.  Wait.  Wait.”  How did you know I said that?  I never said that out loud.”
“I have my ways.”
“Oh really?  Is that so?” my curiosity replied.

The nod was slow, ever so.  We still glanced over the horizon, amazed at what was taking place right before our eyes.

“We should take a picture of that,” she said in awe.
“We should.”

She begins taking out her camera, and I hurl frigid water straight from a bucket.  And she’s drenched head to toe, and she’s pissed.

“How did – “
I have my ways,” I said as I bolted towards the stargate.

“Hey!  Where you going!?”
My voice is trailing off as I yell, “Someone’s going fishing with explosives, and if I don’t make it out now then I’ll be stuck here.  C-ya!” was my reply as I ran for my life.

As I’m about jump through the Stargate, at nanoslowness, the gate disintegrates and I end up crashing like superman headfirst into dust.  Now I was drenched in water and covered and dust.  She loved that.  She was reveling in it.

“Don’t you gotta go somewhere,” I snapped off.
“No no no, this is good,” she said hysterically.
“Not as funny as your ticket back home.”
“What….” She echoed slowly craning her head backwards.

Her eyes widened as the painting’s a blazing inferno.

Dropping her shoulders in resignation she says, “I guess we’re stuck here.”

“You started it,” I smirked.
“Well played,” she replied.
“I guess we’re stuck here until someone else comes along through another one of the unknown paths.
“Guess so.”

Staring into the horizon for minutes, she asks “Well aren’t you going to ask?”
“Nah,” I replied promptly.
“Why not?” she replied sadly.
“No no no, don’t get sad.  We’re going to be here a long time, questions can wait.  But that view though, just look at the Earth.  Are we ever going to see a view that amazing of it ever again?”
“Hopefully.  But I get what you mean.”
“I wish I could paint that.”
“Oh you mean like this?” she says as she motioned to the side a full painting, an exact replica of what we were seeing.
“That’s cheating.”
“Okay fine.”
“That was neat though.  I haven’t learned that one before.”
“Hey genius,” she replies with enough sarcasm to walk all the way to the Earth, “why don’t you take your own advice on imagination?”

I raise the finger, ever, so, slowly.

“Shhhhhh.”

She says not another word for nigh an hour.  We just started ever-perplexed at the same object that had shimmered out of nowhere previously.

“Wanna take a selfie?”
Ugh.  I don’t do selfies.”

She merely narrowed her eyes.

“Fine fine fine, we’ll do it your way this time.  But only on one condition.”
“What’s that?”
“That we get to use that thing over there,” I nodded, “as the background.”
“Why?”
“Because nobody on Earth is going to believe the picture is real, and that just makes it that much more fun.”
“Yeah, because they’re totally going to believe us being on the Moon without that thing.  Totally legit.”
“Hey smart ass, just roll with it okay.”
“Okay okay fine,” she replied.

Taking her phone out of her water-dripping purse, she was readying the camera for the selfie when –

– I snapped my fingers and disappeared in a puff of smoke, as a note drifted slowly thereafter.

Picking up the note, she laughs, puts it in her purse, and stomps her stiletto on the ground and vanishes.

Waking up from having my face buried in a book, I yawn ever so slowly.

While I’m stretching waking up, I realize there is a note folded within the book I just woke up from.

Laughing, I put the note away, and make a paper airplane after writing two lines it, and aim it softly at the closest painting as the plane vanishes out of sight.  The kid’s eyes next to me got enormous while I mouth “Shhhhhhh.”

The kid smiles, and he starts making a paper airplane.  As he’s about to launch it, I close the book and the bell rings.

I have to get back to class.

___________________________________________________________

Author’s Note:

This post was totally unplanned until nigh an hour go or so. I read a post from someone that spoke about the Moon.  That story reminded me of the post I wrote a bit ago called “Have You Ever Walked On The Moon?”  More importantly, the post was inspiring, and this was what I wrote off the cuff.  My mind is still total mush, so hope it makes some semblance of sense.

Lastly, the kid in the story is merely to serve that imagination is contagious, just like what happened with me right now.  You’ll never know how the smallest of circumstances will stoke the embers of someone’s imaginations.

The human element is an intriguing thing.  You will have people that know you for a very long time that take you for granted, and there’s people you know for minutes and start doing the most random and amazing things for you.  These circumstances that revolve around people you don’t know is what we’ll call an anonymous donation.

Through a confluence of circumstances in person as well as online two days ago I had a few people randomly send me messages or drop comments when I least expected; I was appreciative of this act of kindness and let them know.  I don’t know any of these folks at this moment, and that’s the point, they are anonymous in the true sense of the word.

Sometimes the most minute of gestures is all one needs to go from merely beginning to sink (mentally, emotionally, psychological, et al) to having an act of kindness act as a buoy to keeps you floating among the tides.

One thing is someone you know doing something nice for you, and that you can totally understand.  In fact, days ago my friend was having a really bad day due to a divorce and so on, and our other friend that’s like a sister wrote a note for him that was very thoughtful.  When you’re going through incredibly tough times like my friend is, kindness goes a very long way, and oft-times it doesn’t take a lot of effort.

Having someone you know do something for you, anything, is incredibly in my opinion.  It should be appreciated every time and twice on Sundays.

But when people you don’t know do something random for you?  That’s one of those things that life is all about.

Kindness knows no bounds.

Today I found out that one of my friends got fired from somewhere.  That’s never a good thing.  However, when that is done in retaliation of what someone else did, then I have a really big problem with it as a human being, regardless if I know the person or not.  I think most people would feel the same way.

The person that carried out the retaliation is known me, though to say we’re friends would be a stretch.  In any case, there’s not a lot of things that would get me to ‘close’ an emotional bank account but picking on people is essentially one of them.  Am I angry?  No.  Do I hate this person?  No, not at all.  I haven’t been angry or hateful of anyone in a really long time, many years in fact.  Poker helped me conquer those emotions and I consider myself lucky since it helped me deal with things kind of on-the-spot given how poker is merciless in poking at stick at you and testing you.  That said, there’s only person I would say I actually ever hated, and this person really earned it.  In fact, I told them right to their face, which I never thought I would do to anyone but it happened nonetheless.

In any case, the vanguard point is that the main emotion that envelops me is a storm of searing frustration; an ocean of frustrating that is never ending.

While the parameters for how one individual deals with another is different from person to person, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to think that most individuals do have that proverbial line that shouldn’t be crossed.  What that line is for everyone else, I know not.  What I do know is that when that line is crossed, then that’s the end of that.

I won’t be unkind to this person, even though deep down inside I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to bury this person upside down in my front yard and use them as my next Christmas tree just as a start.  Irrespective of that though, my heart screams mindfulness-mindfulness-mindfulness even as my ego disagrees.

It’s just better to drain that ocean of gasoline before a spark ignites it because it’s just not worth it.

Nigh a week ago or so, I ended that particular write up about emotional bank accounts with the topic of “interest rates”, totally jesting.  It didn’t occur to me until now about making that a ‘topic’ of discussion under emotional bank accounts until today.

Today I ran a friend that I run into every now and then that’s grown to become something of an older sister in my mind.  I even openly tell another friend that, who has known her far longer than I have, and he sees her just as so since that’s the trust she has garnered with him as well.

Anyways, today there was a circumstance that exemplified this notion best.  We began with catching up for a considerable time.  Thence, after speaking about her demotivational speaking and how that’s going, and I’m not saying this in jest, she literally is working on ways to demotivate people (don’t ask), we caught up for a while and then she got to venting.

There’s venting, and then there’s VENTING.  This was the latter.

The former would be merely having run-of-the-mill complains that help relieve steam, while the latter is the stuff that if you hold inside it’ll make you stew and turn green.  She went on to vent considerably, and when she was done, I followed suit and opened the release valve as well; she vented about something significant in her life, while I vented about my Mom’s health and my concern for her and her well being.

These circumstances are the type of things that aren’t planned but can be seen as the ‘returns’ that are accrued from consistently making ‘deposits’ into emotional bank accounts.  And while conversations in general can be seem as ‘no big deal’ at first glance, the fact that there’s a veritable industry around this very subject goes to show the significance of this.

What kind of ‘returns’ relationships of myriad types have is wholly dependent on time, effort, and so on, but often times these ‘returns’ help when you least expect them, and that’s why they are incredibly crucial.

An individual never knows when you might need to open a release valve where pressure has built to a certain point, and I sure as heck didn’t know I needed to vent about my Mom’s health again until today.

And believe me, that made all the difference in the world. 

My day (and hopefully hers) went from merely “wanting to get research and writing” done to steamrolling ahead like a locomotive.

That’s one thing about life, sometimes (1) not only do you not know you need to release some steam, but more important, (2) you might not realize how much you can help another person merely by lending an ear when they least expect it.

And while I am grateful for my friend lending an ear, I’m equally grateful for everyone who’s doing their part for their friends just like in the example above, for its little acts of kindness like that which make the world a better place.

Isn’t that what part of life is about, making the world a better place?

Who would have thought conversations could do such a thing?  But they do, they do all the time, it’s just not oft-considered.

The above circumstance is merely an example of Gandhi’s timeless quote:

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Change that starts with every single one of you reading this; change that is possible every day; change that happens every day; change that at times comes when you least expect it.

And isn’t it ironic that change is literally one of the things that accrues from deposits into bank accounts?

“How about them apples?”

___________________________________________________________
Author’s Note:

I really couldn’t resist using the last quote from my favorite movie of all time, Good Will Hunting. 

Good Will Hunting is really a fantastic movie all around.  It’s loaded with far more substance than modern movies are, and it has life lessons to boot.  In fact, it makes me feel emotional just contemplating it.  It’s really worth watching.  I’ve easily seen it over 100 times.

Emotional Bank Accounts: Gold & Silver Vs. Cash | #Friendship | #Friendship #Kindness | #Love | #QualityOfConsciosuness | #PositiveVibes #Positivity

Deposits and withdraws within emotional bank accounts have varying degrees.

Just as there’s a difference between the precious metals gold and silver when compared to cash (federal reserve notes), there’s a significant difference between normal every-day acts of kindness and more significant ones.

Gold and Silver are tangible assets.  Cash is merely federal reserve notes.  The main difference is that the former asset is tangible, while the latter is merely the facsimile of it.  In the same way that gold and silver vis a vis cash are on separate levels, some normal every-day acts individuals undertake for people juxtaposed with more significant acts are on separate tiers.

For instance, saying hello to someone, smiling, opening a door for someone, doing a small favor, are all actions that contribute positively to an individual’s emotional bank account.  However, these acts are not the same as someone changing your tire, helping you move, someone baling you out of trouble, doing a big favor, lending an ear in a time of need, etc.  It’s clear these examples rank differently across the spectrum [1].  How noteworthy an action is, along with how much a person appreciates the act dictate how significant that act is as an emotional deposit.

The point is that relationships build upon trust, actions, time, history and other factors, and those factors outline the parameters of why we hold certain friends in higher standards than others.  That’s why one could argue there’s a difference between people being friends, good friends, great friends and best friends.  Another argument could be made that, as one goes up in tiers, one ‘kind of’ expects (I say this loosely) each higher tier to do more than the lower, IF it all possible [2].

For instance, would you expect a total stranger to do you a small favor?  Maybe, maybe not.  But would you expect a friend to do so?  Probably most of the time.  Equally, would you expect a random friend or acquaintance to drop everything if something significant happened like a family member was in the hospital?  Maybe.  But would you expect one of your best friends to do so if you asked?  More than likely.

In no way am I saying that anybody needs to do anything, simply that there’s a certain expectancy in friendship based on the circumstances and issues we individuals face.  It’s simply people having your ‘back’ so to speak.

Each type of emotional deposit, each type action, builds trust and loyalty.  These factors build relationships, and further solidify what they ultimate become among the above discussed tiers of friendship.

While that might not seem like a big deal, it is incredibly paramount, for society runs on arguably trust more than anything. 

You trust your deposits to be safe in your bank, you trust your food to be safe, you trust your children to be safe in school, you trust media is telling you the truth, and so on.  Every single one of us has a level of trust that is inherent in nigh every interaction we undertake, and yet, paradoxically, trust is nigh never discussed in every day topics.  Ruminate upon that deeply for it has a bearing on how society operates.

As trust between individuals grows, a healthy relationship follows, relationships of myriad types.  And the level of trust between each of these relationships dictates what you expect and what you do not.  That said, everyone is different, and that’s one of the spices of life, variety.

No matter what type of outlook or expectancy an individual has on friendships, there is a significant difference between one act and another, whatever those acts may be.

And just like there are rocks, crystals, gems, diamonds and black pearls in nature, there are individuals that mirror each of those, and with good reason, because that difference matters.  If it didn’t, there wouldn’t be a distinction between strangers and family, between friends and best friends.

That distinction is what life is about: quality human beings [3].

For quality human beings were, are, and always will be a cut above the rest.

No amount of cash, gold, or silver in the world can top that.

___________________________________________________________

[1] An individual’s spectrum under which actions ping on an emotional bank account varies, and sometimes considerably.  My hopes in the above example was simply to note that, even though each individual values different actions differently, there is a point where some actions are of smaller significance when compared to others.

[2] I say ‘kind of’ because what people expect from friendships vary given an individual’s point of view, culture, society, philosophy, spirituality, age, sex, life experience and so on.

[3] Quality human being doesn’t imply perfection of any individual, far from it.  It just means the assemblage of acts an individual undertakes over the course of a lifetime that ultimately end up echoing who you are over the long term.

Emotional Bank Accounts: Investing In Yourself | #PositiveVibes | #Positivity | #Love


BreakawayIndividual.com
Zy Marquiez
April 10, 2019

Out of all of the emotional bank accounts an individual can invest in, the most important one to always consider is your own emotional bank account.  This notion is the equivalent of loving yourself first before you love others.

Consider the following: how likely is an individual to be friendly, kind, caring, loving, et al., if their emotional bank account is at $0?  Or worse, negative?  It’s something to ruminate upon at length.

It’s intriguing to consider the capacity that an individual has to act out of a genuinely caring perspective.  It is not unreasonable to think that an individual’s exposure to negative circumstances will be downright emotionally, morally, and spiritually draining.  Conversely, it is reasonable to see that exposure to environments and individuals of a positive and loving nature will have significant results.

The first environment that an individual is involved in and is exposed to is their very self, their very own being.  This is a crucial detail because it allows for an individual to tailor their environment from the outset, by starting from within.

At this point, all individuals have a choice: what type of ideas and circumstances to subject themselves to?  Each of these ideas and circumstances that are chosen will affect an individual’s emotional bank account.  For example, exposure to ceaseless fear-mongering and lashing out from mainstream media that rarely offers solutions will be incredibly draining and will make an individual fearful and feel helpless ; exposure to more grounded, solution-based, vibrant and thoughtful ideas will allow for an individual to be energized and stay balanced, not overlooking significant details within any particular issue.

Each thought, each idea, each circumstance, infuses or subtracts emotional energy within an individual.  It is paramount for an individual to make sure that a proactive undertaking is carried out not only to make sure that inner balance is maintained, but an individual’s emotional bank account is being replenished if emotional energy was withdrawn and/or increased as much as possible irrespective of circumstance.

How each person accomplishes is the choice of the individual, for each individual is significantly different; only each individual will know what works for them, which is not necessarily what will work for others.

What’s the best way to replenish your emotional bank account?  Is it merely doing something fun, or perhaps something meaningful?  Is it finding something inspiring?  Is it a vacation?  Is it simply a day off?  Is it spending time with family and/or friends?  There are many factors to consider, yet the possibilities abound.

Just make sure to do what’s best for you, for only you know what is best.

Author’s Note:

While a lot of this might seem obvious in hindsight, not much is said about it that I can find.  This is all written for deeper consideration of what supercharges you, the individual, to be at the top of your game.  And to merely consider that is always worth it.

One last thing, small acts that energize you shouldn’t be overlooked.  One need not take a fancy vacation to the Maldives to supercharge yourself.  I mean, if you can do THAT, then by all means (wouldn’t that be nice!).  That said, often times, simply adding a variety of smaller actions could do a lot.  This approach works for me quite often.

Some of the smaller considerations an individual may undertake could be exercises of myriad types, making time for your favorite things (books, movies, shows, songs, poems, quotes, places to visit, photos, drawing, scrapbooking, et al.), undertaking your favorite past times (walking, jogging, swimming, ruminating, etc.), and many other things.  No ideas should be overlooked no matter how simple they seem at first blush, for you never know how the smallest of ideas might just resonate with you and infuse you with energy.

You ever enter a room, a place, a random locale, and instantly feel the bad vibes?  (I am thinking of one of my friend’s here.  If he’s reading this, and we’ve talked about this often, he probably knows where I might be headed with this.)

With the above scenario in mind, in the past I would have willingly stayed in the place without much thought; the last decade or so I’ve learned not to subject myself to that.  Besides the obvious fact that negativity isn’t exactly pleasant to be around, the more important factor is that persistent exposure to such will begin drastically changing you as individual.  Why do you think the media often fear mongers to no end?  Fear and negativity are lathered by the truckload by the mainstream media, and not without reason: because it works.  That is Social Engineering 101 – it changes individuals.

The most salient examples of a shift in mindset, of a shift in vibes[1], is when an individual begins hanging out with the wrong crowd (as I did long ago), and their whole ‘frequency’ shifts to that particular crowd, which is wholly detrimental to their entire being.  I have lived through this circumstance a few times, most of individuals probably have.  The opposite is also true though, exposure to the right people, genuine down-to-earth caring human beings is not only a pleasant experience, but downright rejuvenates your soul.  What better example of this than a concert?  Positive vibes are infectious.  They super-charge you soul for weeks or months at times.

That last point, along with other reasons, is why I love meeting new people.  Occasionally, you meet one of ‘your people’ who resonates with you at that frequency that lets you know “it’s all good, no matter what.”  Come hell or high water, veritable obstacles made from bricks are going to be destroyed with mere toothpicks.  That mentality is refreshing.  This has happened to me these last few weeks a few times, as I am sure it has happened to all of you throughout your lives.  That’s a circumstance I wholly appreciate.

However, just because negativity doesn’t feel good doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be ruminated upon, that it shouldn’t’ be acknowledged.  In fact, it’s my contention that some of the pervasive issues that plague western nations stem from the erroneous point of view that only the positive, what feels good is what matters.  I deliberately say western nations because eastern nations, eastern philosophies, don’t take this approach.  Therefore, individuals from those nations are more balanced and centered in their mindset.  It might seem counter intuitive to mention that after what I mention above, but it is not.

There is an incredible difference between acknowledging something negative, ruminating upon it, learning from it, and choosing to expose yourself to it.  As an example, avoiding negativity because you know its detrimental in the long term is just like saying I know fire burns, and given that I’ve been burned several times, I’m going to avoid it.  That said, the knowledge of how to use the fire (the circumstances that cause pain, suffering, etc.) to make something more of myself shouldn’t be overlooked.  But you don’t intentionally go burning yourself simply because negative circumstances show up on your personal journey.

Now, let’s extend that metaphor a bit and instead of dealing with one fire on the road, an individual notice myriad fires.  That individual that is willing to take a road fraught with fires, a road laden in negativity, is an individual that will have a much harder journey ahead.  Yet, many times, people don’t think twice and not only go on that road that contain brushfires everywhere, but they bring gasoline.  I was a prime example of this.

Many times, through playing poker, I noticed my perspective, my mindset, shift.  I noticed myself mentally going from water mindset, adjusting as water does, in perfect balance irrespective of circumstance, to transmuting myself into gasoline – a proverbial ocean of gasoline.  The problem with that mentality is that, if you are an ocean of gasoline yourself, anyone can light a match that will ignite you, a match that’ll shift your perspective by leaps and bounds.  Sometimes others light that ocean of gasoline, sometimes you do it, but the result is always the same, anger, desolation, destruction, and worse.

Thankfully having gone through that instance many times has made me incredibly cognizant of why your thoughts, your mindset, matters.  It always matters.  These thoughts shift your inner being, your nature, the frequency with which you live life – your vibes.  What’s more, that resonates.  This is why social engineering is employed to such an extent.

When circumstances arise that test you as an individual, it would be prudent to react like a river would.

When a river is in prolonged exposure to overwhelming heat, the fires from the skies that threaten drought, it withdraws into itself, it submerges within the land; therein the river maintains its endless reservoir away from the heat, until better times arise.

Every single individual can do the same.
