Mind: The ring that rules them all! - SMOL Now, let Uncle8888 shares this story ....
One version of this Taoist Story One day a man was standing at the edge of a pool at the bottom of a huge waterfall when he saw an old man being tossed about in the turbulent water. He ran to rescue, but before he got there, the old man had climbed out onto the bank and was walking alone, singing to himself.
The man was astonished and rushed up to the old man, questioning him about the secret of his survival. The old man said that it was nothing special. "I began to learn while very young, and grew up practising it.
Now, I'm certain of success. I go down with the water and come up with the water. I follow it and forget myself. The only reason I survive is because I don't struggle the water's superior power."
To think is easy. To act is difficult. To act as one thinks is the most difficult of all. - Johann Wolfgang
Same like 3M's - Method, Money, and Mind. To act as one thinks on his/her 3M's is even more difficult as one M is likely be in conflict with other Ms - Createwealth8888 Like the old man in the Taoist story, he keeps on learning and practising until he is certain of success, and then he forget himself and just follow the flow of the water.
The market is like the water. Don't ever struggle against it if you want to survive.
