Sorry for the slow going of this thread.

Been gathering data.

How do we know if we are?

Perhaps one way is if someone tells you you have this of that quality......For example, another soul states: "That's very generous of you."

Blash, when you win, someone loses. You cannot win in trading without taking what could potentially be food out of someone else's mouth. Can you explain the spirituality in that?

True that, but, what if majority of that money came from hedge funds where they might not even care about losing a few hundreds a day? What if?

As Ed Seykota noted, everyone gets what they want out of the market. Many people trade for excitement and other reasons. They may lose money, but gain many other things that they want.

By being them.

And if we are not there yet, that's ok too, because we eventually become what we play-act.
