Peering out beyond the end of your nose
February 15, 2016

The stock market declines of the past few weeks have lessons for us all, whether we are investors or not. First, there has been significant declines and not just volatility as the BBC news calls it. In fact there has been very little volatility as this implies movement both up and down. The movement seem to me to be largely in one direction. So as ever language is important

But second, these big falls remind us that there is always change and movement and the future always retains an essence of complete unpredictability. And we should be aware that there is a future out there that is beyond the end of our nose which will not be as it appears to be right now. The secret is to accept that and be ok about it.

And how do you do that? See next week.

by Sophia Yasmeen

    We spend most of our waking hours in the process of filling our mind with borrowed noise. We try to protect us from being lonely, as if being lonely is a crime. So we talk to each other; do things together so that we won't be left alone.' and yet, inevitably, we are really alone in this human forms. We can pretend; we can entertain each other; that’s about the best we can do. When it comes to the actual experience of life, we are very much alone. We create a world of our own, where we have friends, enemies, interesting companions... But the whole lot of it comes and goes. Anything that has a beginning will have an end. Everything that is born will die.
