I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Master the Art of Formless Form - The Greatest of All Kung Fu in Investing (2)

How do I master Formless Form?

From Wuxiapedia

Let us continue the story ...

Dugu Qiubai's Martial Arts Philosophy

In his Sword Tomb, it is stated:

"The Demonic Swordsman Dugu Qiubai has become the invincible and unchallenged warrior under Heaven, he therefore buried his swords here. Alas, the heroes of the realm bowed down before me, now my long sword is of no use anymore... the agony!"

"Fierce and aggressive, able to penetrate every obstacle. With it, I competed with the heroes of the Northern Plains during my teenage years."

"The Violet Flexible Sword, used it prior to the age of thirty. I accidentally wounded a righteous man with it, it turned out to be a Weapon of Doom. I felt great remorse and abandoned the sword in a deep valley."

"The Heavy, Blunt Sword, complexity is useless. Before I reached the age of forty, I used it to roam the entire Empire under Heaven."

"After the age of forty, I no longer relied on weaponry. Trees, bamboo and rock can all be my swords. From then on, the essence of my cultivation slowly reached the level of overcoming the sword without a sword."

Dugu Nine Swords favors formlessness so that it can assume all forms and, since it has no style, Dugu Nine Swords uses all ways and is bound by none and, likewise, uses any techniques or means which serves its end. In this art, efficiency is anything that scores. (Createwealth8888: Your XIRR or CAGR that matters the most and not the form i.e. your method. Efficiency and productivity of your capital)

Expression is not developed through the practice of form, yet form is a part of expression. The greater (expression) is not found in the lesser (expression) but the lesser is found within the greater. Having "no form", then, does not mean having no "form". Having "no form" evolves from having form. "No form" is the higher, individual expression.

In Dugu Nine Swords, all technique is to be forgotten and the unconscious is to be left alone to handle the situation. The technique will assert its wonders automatically or spontaneously. To float in totality, to have no technique, is to have all technique.

The Moral of the Story

Here the bad news!

There is no short cut to master Formless Form. You have to work on it for many years to transform from Form to Formless Form.

In my own personal experience, I have spent many years reading tons of TA books learning from Dr A, Mr B and Guru C and tested many TA indicators, ABC here and ABC there, double screen here and triple screen there all with real money and real trades. I realized all these Form doesn't work for me as I was still losing money. Finally, I gave up and forget all of them. Now I do it without any TA indicators. When I see. I like. I do it.
