Probably A Good Question to Ask to Get An Idea of a Person's Personality

Fits me to a tee perfectly, save the SUV part.

Proud of Myself Today

You know, I made difference in someone's life today. The person, I did not even know. No idea who he is, what his background is. All I know is that I helped brighten this man's day and future outlook just by a little bit. And as I hear myself in my head writing this, it feels a bit futile that I only could help him a little bit, but nevertheless, my act of kindness spoke to him that he probably never expected. It was simple, nothing great. I arrived at the Caltrain station, and headed towards the bathroom like I almost always do. I see this man sitting at a seat waiting that's near the bathroom. Didn't think much of it, and went along into the bathroom and did my business. Came back out, looked at him again, and said, "Hi, how you doing?" I said it, not meekly, but not too loud either. He responded to me. He told me he needed to get home, but couldn't. He was genuine. I could tell, 100%, no joke. I initially did not know how I would react. I thought about saying no. But didn't feel comfortable turning away a guy who seemed to authentically need help. I knew I had two $20's. I took out my wallet and gave him a $20. Seeing his reaction just put a smile on my face. I had given him more than enough money to go where he needed to go. Did not expect to get change back. He was so grateful. He wanted to shake my hand, and also a hug. Early in the morning at 6 AM, I must admit I felt a tad bit wary, initially at least. It was a wonderful feeling though. I told him to take care, and headed off. Although I initially had some hesitance to give him money, because I did not know him at all and his background, I am so glad I did this. $20 to me was no big deal. To him, it meant such a relief and at least some peace of mind. I want to remember this occurence, and remember one of my goals that I wrote down and reupdated on "My Goals" page, and that is to truly understand the positions of others who need help, and from compassion and empathy, help them out. I don't ever expect anything back, and I want to do this, love is real. Unconditional love, as hard as it can be, is an ultimate goal for a spiritual person like myself.

I do want to note how a recent program that I bought had an important yet indirect hand in this. You see, I very recently bought David Wygant's Own the Room. Can't have enough praise for this man. True respect on my behalf to him. An ultimate communicator with people. It's really a program talking about how to build relationships with so many people you encounter in life, having an abundance mindset, and truly connecting with people and as a byproduct, develop a powerful network of people that will help you in your life, no matter what your goal is. This is something I've recently learned as my nursing school experience's end comes closer and closer. It's not too far now. Just slightly around the corner. And I learned that connections are so powerful. Having that in, to a job, rather than applying as a nobody online. It's so powerful. You live a lifestyle unbeknownst and unimaginable to the vast majority of common folks. That's what I want. It's something I am going to work on, dedicate myself to in the future. Shouldn't be too far off.

The reason this indirectly influenced what occured today, is because of the fact that being a master communicator involves talking to people you don't know, even if it's as simple as saying hello or hi. And as I was listening to David Wygant en route on Caltrain in the wee hours of the morning to go to campus for class, I absorbed his message. And lol and behold, I said "Hi, how you doing?", to that man. Would not have happened if not for David's powerful influence when listening to him. And serendipitously, I helped this man out. A simple act of kindness, helping each other out, expecting nothing in return. Hmm, reminds me of David saying to practice observing and giving out genuine compliments to people and walking away and expecting absolutely nothing in return. So powerful to your psyche. So powerful to positively affect the lives of others.

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” - Joseph Campbell

5. To develop strong, deep, emotional connection with others based off honesty and the sharing of intimate thoughts, feelings, experiences (life and everyday exp.), beliefs, and values. (From Lion King Days)

Reminder to Myself

The blogs you write should not be an impetus to living your life and going for your dreams. Just write as you go when you have time and after for those goals you accomplished and want to share. The blog is to help you share yourself and understand yourself better with the people in your life. Do not expect this blog to be your main source of connection with others, even being the introvert you are. You need other people in your life. The goals you are going for, don't let this blog thwart you cuz then you just fall into a trap of perfection, as you learned in Brian Kim's self-discipline subscription. You can't document everything important in your life as there will always be times where there will be things you will want to write about but won't due to time or another reason. It doesnt need to be perfect but use this blog as a tool to help you progress and develop. What is the true need that is being filled by this idea of having a perfect blog to showcase who you are? Live your life, be confident in the fact that every moment in your life exists outside of space and time, that what you don't document due to whatever reason is not lost and purposeless just cuz you didn't write about it. You are perfect the way you are. Whatever needs to happen is happening right now. Abundance. Everything that I need in this moment in life, I already have. I can walk away from all this, anything, at any time, and feel whole, and at one with the universe. Remember this Michael, you are already complete without needing to write about everything. Just a few things to take away from this rant, and that is abundance, wholeness, and at one with the universe. Your life is exactly at where it needs to be right now, no matter what or where your life is at. Remember that.
