Dao De Ching based on Stephen Mitchell's translation of Lao Tzu's classic http://www.edepot.com/tao4.html Chapter 1 "The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao The name that can be named is not the eternal Name." Conceptual inputation of the truth is not the same as directly experiencing the truth. Once we put labels upon and conceptualize the truth, its essence is lost. The key to the truth is honesty. Make-belief and preconceptions are impediments to direct experience. Dao (tao) is both the vision and the path. One facet of the puzzle is that a trader has to know who he is... What is his weakness? What is his strength? His methodology should reflect that... there is a better way for him to travel. P.S. I have some random B.S. about trading that I would like to get out of my head... But as Lao Tzu said... the truth is lost in words.
