One of my favorite lines from a movie:

"How did you just become more beautiful in the last 20 seconds?" - from the movie, 'The Space Between us'

A goodbye from a someone who is leaving my life:

"You are the greatest thing to have happened to me during my lowest point and I will always be grateful to have shared that journey with you."

Instead of allowing our unhappiness to grind love and friendship to zero or less, we should learn to leave things so that we remember each other well for our journey in which time passes through us.

If I do not enter according to my trading plan, then I am disregard sound reason and logic. If I do not follow my plan by letting my trades ride, then I am stealing from myself the full potential of a trade. If I do not exit according to my plan, then I taking too little and giving away too much, and it will show itself in my long term results.  Therefore:

1. Enter only according to my plan
2. Stay in the trade according to my plan
3. Exit only according to my plan
   a. After each exit, take a 30 minutes break before entering again

And accept all results so that I may learn to do it better going forward.

My vision and goal is to one day trade 1000 contracts regularly this way, with no expectations of results.

I used many of Ashida Kim's Zen stories in my book.  I asked for permission from Mr. Kim. All the great stories help us to understanding happiness in our life's journey.  For in happiness, we give ourselves to the world and ask for nothing.  In our unhappiness, we take everything from the world and our unhappiness radiates into the world.  One of my favorite that I used was:

Ryonen's Clear Realization

The Buddhist nun known as Ryonen was born in 1797. She was a granddaughter of the famous Japanese warrior Shingen. Her poetical genius and alluring beauty were such that at seventeen she was serving the empress as one of the ladies of the court. Even at such a youthful age fame awaited her.

The beloved empress died suddenly and Ryonen's hopeful dreams vanished. She became acutely aware of the impermanency of life in this world. It was then that she desired to study Zen.

Her relatives disagreed, however, and practically forced her into marriage. With a promise that she might become a nun after she had borne three children, Ryonen assented. Before she was twenty-five she had accomplished this condition. Then her husband and relatives could no longer dissuade her from her desire. She shaved her head, took the name of Ryonen, which means to realize clearly, and started on her pilgrimage.

She came to the city of Edo and asked Tetsugyu to accept her as a disciple. At one glance the master rejected her because she was too beautiful.

Ryonen then went to another master, Hakuo. Hakuo refused her for the same reason, saying that her beauty would only make trouble.

Ryonen obtained a hot iron and placed it against her face. In a few moments her beauty had vanished forever.

Hakuo then accepted her as a disciple.

Commemorating this occasion, Ryonen wrote a poem on the back of a little mirror:

In the service of my Empress I burned incense to perfume my exquisite clothes

Now as a homeless mendicant I burn my face to enter a Zen temple.

When Ryonen was about to pass from this world, she wrote another poem:


Sixty-six times have these eyes beheld the changing scene of autumn

I have said enough about moonlight,

Ask no more.

Only listen to the voice of pines and cedars when no wind stirs.

While in London last weekend because my son was running in the London Marathon, we saw a blind person running in the London marathon. The blind person ran locked elbow with another runner. It goes to show that we all have too many excuses for why we can't while this person found all the reasons why he could.

Lately, I am reminded that my light went out:

Your Light May Go Out

A student of Tendai, a philosophical school of Buddhism, came to the Zen abode of Gasan as a pupil. When he was departing a few years later, Gasan warned him: "Studying the truth speculatively is useful as a way of collecting preaching material. But remember that unless you meditate constantly your light of truth may go out."

There cannot be heat without cold, strength and wisdom without suffering, success without failure, life without death, or joy without sadness. Thus, if they both go together, we must learn to appreciate both for one cannot exist without the other.

To an old high school classmate, thoughts of my action towards you has have been weighing on my mind lately. I don't even remember your name, but I know we took a computer programming class together. It is one of the stupidest thing that I did in my life. I never even tried to talk to you first to resolve the issue peacefully. I simply just jump kicked you because my idiot friend said that you disrespected him in the hallway.

For that I sincerely apologize for my stupid action. Going forward, I will try my best to be kind to others and resolve issues peacefully.
