The paramount thing is understanding the causality of this. It is the Sweet State (cause) that brings about results (effects)... not the other way around. Another way to put this is that happiness brings about success, not success happiness.
Unfortunately most people go into trading 'the wrong way'. They expect to achieve trading success... and THEN they will be happy (so they think). Much better to go into trading ALREADY happy... and then allowing that happiness to guide one towards success. "Pleasant abiding here and now".
Trading does not solve unhappiness problems (makes them much worse in fact), but one has a much higher chance of becoming a successful trader if already happy.
I agree being in the right frame of mind is the key to trading.....
Shivaya is translated into English as " I bow before Shiva". Shiva is the Hindu god of destruction.
The god of destruction involved with feelings of sweetness? Shiva is also listed as the "god who remains after all is destroyed....or the inner self". So in the most literal meaning, one "bows or worships oneself".
Just some facts I found along the way.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, Leonardo da Vinci
Most people chose unhappiness over uncertainty, Tim Ferris

Great posts on something I believe far more important but lacking in most. Thanks for sharing.
You talked about 'getting into a state of sweetness' and I know this could be different from person to person but in your case, if you do not mind sharing here, is it some kind of meditation/yoga/prayer you do or is it some other rituals you run through prior to start of trading?
Sweetness is the same for all of us, just some may use different names to describe the feeling. No ritual, prayer, belief system, or yoga required. (I did all these over the years but now it's simply a state of loving consciousness) Look at a sunrise or sunset, or watch birds play in the thermals, or dolphins surf, or kids playing, or your sweetheart's loving glance. They will all get you into a state of sweetness and a feeling of inner joy. You are part of all this wonder. Just like the market, place a trade and now you are part of this play. How wonderful is that!
Yep. probably the most misunderstood aspect of us dear humans, 'loving oneself'. We go looking for others to love us while ignoring the powerful Inner Love. I deeply love and appreciate every aspect of my being, so trading is a joyful experience, as is surfing and dancing and more.
