drops of water
as they fall
seeding the earth
with liquid sunlight
Wash your mind with liquid sunlight, letting it penetrate every crevice, cleaning the cobwebs while infusing your thoughts with golden light, filling your words with a healing nectar that runs like a river into the world. What does this have to do with trading?
Traders think they’re immune to the need for self-development. They would rather receive an injection of money than an injection of meaning. They view life as cause and effect rather than a Divine Comedy, referring both to Dante’s journey through hell and life as a theatre of the absurd epitomized by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland: “Clean cup, move down.”
At times, our lives appear to be orchestrated by the trickster. The rational world is turned upside down. Nothing makes sense. This is the dawning of consciousness. The first step toward meaning is to realize the world is not rational. So traders can stop singing “I wish I were a Contrarian” while trading treasury bonds.
Realize that life is like water dripping through your fingers. You can’t control it. But with the intervention of divine grace (liquid sunlight), you can cleanse your spirit as well as your mind, allowing grace to help you give to the world.
