The WAY to WAY OUT....!!!
its so SIMPLE WAY..... but many tend to interpret this in very HARD WAY.....!!!
its SIMPLY the WAY we THINK, TALK and ACT...!!!
the WAY our heart and mind works when we THINK, TALK and ACT... decide our journey of LIFE and DESTINY....!!!

the most dangerous thing in this world is our own heart and mind.... when it start misleading us.... noone else can save us... but after some time its may be easy to understand what happened, and how & why it was....!!!

If we are able to discover ourself (who we are), controle our minds by practicing meditation and contain greed we could succeed in what ever-field we are in. Stock market is no exception. You are sure to succeed.

Thought for the day... 16388510

Translation:

Attachment is purely caused by Greed. If there is no greed, then there would be no attachment. Wherever there is greed, there is attachment.

According to the truth (reality, rather), worldly joy is a form of sorrow. The inbuilt sorrow is so subtle that the person who is indulged in these worldly joys cannot comprehend it.
when one is attached to worldly joys, the inherent sorrow cannot be removed. It's impossible to separate the two - it's a packaged deal.

This is why Lord Buddha advised to study sorrow, understand the way its hidden inside the worldly joys and to be aware of the danger.

So, my friend, be careful of worldly joys. Do not get attached to those. At the same time, do not lose hope when sorrow comes to you one day. Comprehend the fact that joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin - carrying the same value...

Therefore, a person who understands this reality will look at joy or sorrow in Equanimity (Upeksha)

Well said.

Also note, that to be able to comprehend and develop equanimity, you have to learn bhavana. There is no other way. Mere intellectual comprehension is nothing. The Sattipattana sutta, is the perfect scientific road map to achieve that.

Equanimity is also a 'Quasi' Nibbhana state, where an effort is needed to keep the mind in that state.

Real Nibbhana doesn't need such effort as Buddha explains in Ogatharana Suthra...
