Trading: a blessing in the sky or a heavenly curse?
What if each human Being in his true essential nature IS ajeweled Holy Grail?
Well, then what?
Instead of looking for a Holy Grail outside of us, let's turn inwards for the diamond-goldmine.
That is truly scary stuff: we are in essence sooooooo BIG. It is SO close and completely overlooked and forgotten. THE Human tragedy!
What I want to share here with like-minded people is the link between the spiritual and the material manifestation. The link between our compulsive auto-destructive behavior and our results and how to improve our trading equity.
My trading results after more than twelve years are directly related to my mind, beliefs, habits: my past. And this part has been my own worst enemy. I lost more than 100K and am still (2hrs/day max) around, financially seriously handicapped with a "crushed" trading body. Why do I continue? Pride? stupid stubbornness? Doggedness? Perseverance and tenacity? Only through doing it, the experience will tell.
The enormous and repeated losses mirror back the unlimited profusion and squirting possibilities: the money lies there literally & figuratively for the picking.
For me, Forex is like life itself: SO simple, but not easy @ all. Beyond the unlimited potential to improve my material existence and those of others, the challenges in the trading serve as a support to transform my shadow dysfunctional ego survival patterns and to give birth and manifest little by little my normal, natural, sacred essential true human nature. Through an attitude of immense respect, compassionate understanding, loving-kindness and gratefulness for my continuous struggle with the obsessive self-destructive habits that appear in my insane unconscious, under the pressure of daily life and a fortiori in trading.
So before I share my strategies (indicators, tools etc.) which start finally to get roots, I want to set a structure for those who participate in this thread:
1) Share what you know about yourself and trading.
2) A willingness to question your own robotized behavior on autopilot. Indeed trading triggers all the unconscious layers in the human mind: the alien, the beast, devils & demons: share and enlighten our trading blind spots.
3) To play with the idea that normal life, in essence, is every split-second pure coincidence, magic, miracle, but our seeing in the "eternal here-and-now" is veiled by our ego projections.
4) No criticizing of others: to acknowledge with immense respect and compassionate understanding that which is being shared.
5) Keeping self-humor on our shared human insanity.
6) Focus on exotic high volume pairs especially XAUUSD,
7) Practicing generosity: giving away - as a tithe - 10% or more of the profits/equity generated
Anything else to make this thread humanly powerful?
Suggestions and comments, please.
I truly look forward to your deep contribution generating the potential of true profusion for all of us.
PS: this thread is also for those who are successful in their trading and “are already making it”
Two universal laws already manifested by a normal, fully realized exciting, challenging and sacred human being about 2000 years ago:
"The more you give, the more you receive from life:
"Seek ye first his kingdom (within yourself) and all these things shall be added unto you.
