Ninja is not open. Off since 5pm. Trading computer powered down. There is nothing to see. When I turn my computer on in the morning, whatever I see on the screen is not going to be that confusing. In bed with a dog and a guitar.

How would you be if in this very moment, with total and complete sincerity you knew, (which is beyond feeling it or believing it or thinking it) that you had , now and in every living moment from here on, everything you need, desire, wish or hoped for?
To be clear of what I'm saying, that you actually had everything now within your being.


I would be where I want to be.

I don't remember. But I have been there and I am thinking about it.

Cruda has an interesting confluence for support in an otherwise convincingly weak market. The 786 of the recent minor wave, the 382 of the recent major wave, and the 100% of a possible Wave A down are all coming together between 91.66 and 91.70.

That's an interesting reply...only because it references “remembering” when there was no reference to the past inferred or stated in the question.

This is now.
Using our imagination to allow the feeling of total satisfaction in that we have everything we “require” now, within us.
Within us because this isn't about having a list of all the things we think we want in life that we believe will fulfil us. In doing so we would be associating our fulfilment with that which is outside of us and for as long as we don't have it we will be either chasing a reason we have created for obtaining that fulfilment or in obtaining that thing, finding that it does not fulfil us.

Neither is it about invoking a remembered or past feeling of when we thought we were fulfilled or satisfied.

Rather that, totally irrespective of any list of things or feelings or past, we allow the imagination of having, now, everything we require to invoke a sense of something.

It's like if somone was to then ask."well what is it you have that makes you feel so content/fulfilled ?"
you would be able to say
"actually I don't know, it doesn't really matter, that's not the point"

Then what would that sense be..or as asked, how would that be for you ?

Every moment I wake up I realize I know nothing, and then I smile...

I was aware of that, but I said I would go back to it a few times, and that was what surfaced at that attempt. We are equally puzzled at the moment. lol!

I am sincerely going through the exercise of asking the questions and seeing how much I believe the answers. There is something deeper.

Sometimes, yes. But I could not say why exactly.

Traded -3 ticks net today. I was seeing the potential to be range bound but not finding anything to hold onto strong enough in my mind.
