Investment Fallacies – a postscriptum

To be a successful investor, in the long-term, does not require one to have a larger-than-life IQ or even a degree from the Harvard Business School. All that is necessary is to have a sound intellect for making good decisions and the ability to keep emotions at bay, something that can be achieved through having a mind that is constantly purified in Enlightenment.

We are at that time of civilization when an Awakened Mind is more than necessary in a world overcrowded with creatures of illusion where there is just too much (junky?) information that has seen many executives’ minds recline to near-insanity. It’s a crazy world where everybody is too focused on the short-term side of things while completely missing the bigger picture of life, and also missing the fun of being alive. Of course God never intended for mankind to be spending all his time from dusk till dawn trying to place bread and butter on the table – there has to be something more than work and pleasure.

The root of all world problems and restlessness is that money (materialism) has become the new and subtle universal religion. This is a time when the only way the worth of a person is measured is by the virtue of the fatness of his pockets. A quick question: would the American president have been elected if he was as poor as Abraham Lincoln when he founded the Republican Party in 1854 and later became the president of his country? We are at a time of history when our instinctive intelligence and awareness has significantly reduced due to the overemphasis of the importance of materialism in the world over.

The enlightened investor lives a happy life. He understands that life is a game that men have taken just too seriously at the expense of his own peace-of-mind and contentment. The awakened investor is versatile in his thinking and he wakes up every day with an awareness that in the business world it should be normal to do something foolish [for this is the only way to learn], something creative and something generous. To be an awakened investor it is important that one become a master researcher in the particular trade one is involved in, in microscopic, almost molecular, detail.

This way, the wakeful investor lives happily thereafter, intricately connected to his purpose to live an Enlightened life.

  1. It is uncertain that a man like Lincoln could have gotten elected today… our political process has been poisoned by the emergence of what are called Superpacs, which are neither accountable to the American public for their members, nor for the origins of their monies contributed to certain candidates or used against others. There must be a rebellion enough among the citizens of this country to divorce our future Presidents from such political/financial influence and favors, or we will indeed be no better than the dictatorships we criticize…

  2. That is very true. I always admire the honesty and sincerity of American leaders back in the days of the likes of Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington. Such men (and others) had so much patience and passion to ensure America becomes the torch of civilization for all mankind. I don’t know what happened along the way..

  4. Grazie i tuoi consigli, che condivido appieno, sono preziosi. È facile dimenticarsi che è un gioco e magari farsi prendere dalla rabbia! Ma poi scoppiò a ridere rendendomi conto della mia stupidità…🙋‍♀️

  5. Grazie mille Giovanni. Mi riempie sempre il mio cuore con felicità per leggere il tuo commento, grazie per la tua mente brillante e aperta.
    Hai molto ragione che molti non riescono a capire che la necessità di moltiplicazione della ricchezza è tutto un gioco, perché la maggior parte hanno sempre acquisito il veleno velenoso della conoscenza parziale attraverso le società e le istituzioni di apprendimento dove ognuno opera da uno stato di sonno profondo e tutti sono tutti il mondo è diventato così abituato alla «dottrina della gratificazione immediata», abbandonando così le loro innate nature divine e, a lungo termine, abbandonando le essenze dell’anima.
    Grazie ancora per trovare il tempo per la breve chat. Avere un giorno più beato davanti! Con amore dal Kenya.

  6. Lets tweak that a bit into “the love of ignorance and delusion is the root of all evil”. What exactly is love and what exactly is money? That’s a good question that can help you see through the sheer ignorance of a people.
