the year comes to a close I want to share my appreciation for your
hosting FAQ and for all the contributors who share their feelings and
I notice that I particularly enjoy reading
about people's experiences in their significant relationships, such as
their spouses, children, parents, friends and co-workers. I learn
a lot about how to really show up for the important people in my life.
feel a great deal of respect for the vulnerability your contributors
often display in what they share. I value emotional
openness. I want to do more of that and I often feel inspired by
what I read in FAQ.
One goal that I have for the coming year
is to foster deeper connection as often as I can, in all my
interactions but especially with people in my personal support
system. My relationships help me to feel alive, even when they
feel challenging or disturbing, and most of all when I feel the rapport
that grows from sharing feelings.
Thank you again for providing this forum and for shining a spotlight on the powerful effect our relationships have on us.
Happy New Year!

I listen to this song and watch the video, I feel inspired and
encouraged to get off my butt and "DO SOMETHING", to show up for the
world in some way, however small.
Even though some of the
lyrics refer specifically to Christianity, I prefer to hear the song as
being about all of us, as humans who have so much to give, and receive,
by simply caring about each other.
When I reach out to others I feel connected and alive, even when life hurts.

might consider your relationship with Christianity; you cite a
link and also implicitly apologize for it with "even though ..."

More on Crypto Currencies
Thank you for your comment [about the tension between government control and the inherent freedom of crypto currencies].
On your point, I wonder as well. Over in China, tight capital controls
are causing the Chinese to move yuan outside the country by first
converting it to bitcoin then converting it to a fiat currency such as
the US dollar. Meanwhile, deep inside the rabbit hole, my friend who
has dined with the head of the CP as well as a few others have claimed
those in power are embracing cryptotechnologies and stockpiling
bitcoin. If true, it reminds me of how the face of China continues to
remain communist but their actions within are capitalist.
Perhaps here are two possibilities:
1) The Fed realizes it should work with these emerging (and maybe
unstoppable technologies) by creating their own cryptocurrency which
they can control. Services such as Netflix dominate because they are
simple to use and cost-effective. So while illegal file sharing
continues to be a huge contender to Netflix, people like convenience
and the time saved, thus use Netflix or both.
Likewise, an effective cryptocurrency that is seamless that reduces
fees (remittance, wire, merchant, credit card, paypal, etc) would be
more likely to be widely adopted. This may result in a compromise where
both uncontrolled cryptotechnologies and a US controlled cryptocurrency
2) To assist the Fed, the US government attempts to ban all forms of
cryptocurrencies which slows but does not stop its progress. In time,
the growth of cryptotechnologies erodes the sovereignty of the dollar
as cryptocurrencies start to overtake to become a new form of fiat
currency that slowly drains power from governments as they become more
widespread, a superior store of value over gold, and inflation-free.
I wonder your thoughts on what appears to be a convergence of strong
predictive elements. While the future does not exist, odds favor the
sun rising in the east at tomorrow's dawn:
1) Government cradle-to-grave lifecycles where we are at the point
where governments devour their middle class which spells the death of
their fiat currency. Your book "Govopoly in the 39th Day" beautifully
explains this process.
2) Martin Armstrong's IP is rooted in the cyclical nature of living and
non-living things, even particles ... , and seems to have accurately
called major tipping points since the early 1980s in real-time as well
as showing tipping points going back to BC. The accuracy resulted in
the US government demanding he hand over his IP. A documentary "The
Forecaster" was made that chronicles his decade long ordeal as one of
the early whistle blowers. His latest major prediction says a
transformation started on October 1, 2015 where the political house of
cards begins to topple and governments start to break down.
3) A major spiritual tipping point for humanity began in late September
2015 according to various accounts, both scientific and spiritual.
After what I've experienced firsthand this year, I believe that science
is just beginning to scratch the surface of reality.
There has been a huge gap between science and spirituality that may be narrowing.
Respected physicists from highly regarded universities have made some
major discoveries in quantum physics that show certain existing
scientific paradigms are incorrect. Some areas profoundly affecting our
understanding of reality: entanglement/string theory, quantum physics,
double slit experiment (the observer matters), particle time travel,
human emotions automatically predict the near future (before the
"loving" or "tragic" cards were shown to each subject, the heart and
brain reacted before the subject could see the card)..

I find the contribution regarding the possible use of TTP as a weapon
I can see myself landing on both sides of that issue: sometimes feeling
superior as I notice "ordinary" attempts my friends might make to
communicate their feelings and needs, and sometimes feeling that I
"fail" when I don't express myself in terms of feelings and body
Worse than failure is a sense of inadequacy, as if some people can "do"
it and others (like me) just can't.
I would like to amplify a couple of "stop/start" suggestions on the
list already mentioned in the post "Relationship Methods":
1. Stop focusing on the "incoming" communication as a
challenge. Start experiencing the statements of others as a
bid for connection, even if the bid seems awkward or downright hostile
(easier said than done, to be sure!).
2) Stop making it all about me, by judging or focusing on the ways the
other person's statement, or personality, or lifestyle differs from my
own. Start developing an interest in their unique experience of the
world, not to agree with them or to change myself, but simply to expand
my ability to connect without fear.
We're all more human than not, so we have the most fundamental common
ground; beyond that, we can enjoy and be curious about our differences
rather than try to eradicate or judge them.
Thanks again for encouraging me to explore the system that presents
itself in every relationship I have.

During a recent Rocks Process, I release a long-standing pattern of
attracting emotionally unavailable partners.
then, I notice that while I have, historically, considerable skill with
relating with emotionally unavailable partners, I do not have much
experience with alliance relating with emotionally available partners.
Through conversations with friends and associates I come to embrace
some new methods below.
Stop using TTP to analyze other people and to tell them what they need
to fix about themselves; start telling them what I feel about my own
2. Stop expecting other people to use TTP to pace
my feelings; start accepting them the way they choose to behave
3. Stop insisting that others understand
about intentions = results; start understanding how they view the world
in terms of causality, blame and guilt.
4. Stop interrupting to correct people; start listening and getting
5. Stop assuming everyone wants an adversarial relationship; start
allowing people to act in supportive ways.
Stop insisting on using the Rocks Fore-Giveness process; start
other processes such as the conventional
7. Stop employing logic for every transaction; start employing kindness.
8. Stop expecting rejection; start cultivating openness to acceptance.
9. Stop issuing ultimatums; start sharing feelings.
Stop going unconscious and cutting off emotional connection during
stressful moments; start staying awake and maintaining connection.
11. Stop firing logical weapons at others; start sharing feelings.
12. Stop reacting automatically and defensively to strong feelings of
stress; start allowing a moment to employ other reactions.
13. Stop worrying about the relationship; start sharing fun things.

Develop a System
am a young trader and huger fan of yours. I have a lot of respect for
the work you have done and even more for your incredibly humble
personality, and willingness to respond to anyone who submits a
question to you.
I have been actively trading for a few
years now. I started when I was 19 (now 22) and have had enough success
to recently be hired by a prop firm who backs our strategies. Similar
to you it is very clear to me that this is what I am supposed to do in
My trading thus far has been solely discretionary,
but after rereading market wizards and doing some more research I have
become enamored by systems trading. I am very interested in getting
started immediately developing my system, and am armed with a number of
strategies I am interested in implementing, but feel slightly
overwhelmed in deciding where I should start.
Specifically I am having trouble deciding a software, and language to
learn so I can develop strategies.
you be able to recommend a simple but robust method to start developing
strategies with? I have heard tradestation can be amateurish, and was
wondering what you thought of RightEdge. Additionally do you think C#
is the most effective language to develop systems? I have almost no
coding experience but have no hesitation in learning any skill, or
necessary related skill.
If you have any other
conventional advice on the actual construction of systems it would be
very much appreciated. Thank you dearly for your time.
you for raising this issue.
I do not endorse or recommend specific trading systems or software
might consider starting your system development project by studying
charts to get an idea of what kind of system you would like to develop.
From there you might consider back testing your system by inspection,
and then, more rigorously with a spreadsheet program.
you get a feel for how system testing works, you might consider
automating the process with any number of software packages.
You might also consider learning a standard language such as C#.
