Zen: Beginner's Mind

Shunryu Suzuki was a Zen master:

He says, "The most important thing is not to be dualistic. If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything; it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few."

There are great trades swirling all around us every day. Do you see possibilities? And if you trade, are you willing to let them go when they go against you?

The market is a swirl of chaos, fear and greed. The Zen master remains calm in the center of the wheel.

Can you be calm amid the chaos?
