  • The Tao of the Dow | Thomas Grové's Blog
    of this undesirable material Yet without these raw materials we would not be able to manufacture grow or create the desirable As time passes desirable things break die wear down and eventually decompose They once again return to their source and are undesirable This cycle can be represented as an oscillation of continuous movement things constantly flowing into and then out of value only for the process to repeat again again again This is the Tao Since the theory of the Tao attempts to describe nature or the way things are it only follows that this theory would also describe local country imperial and world economies This Tao can also describe the Dow Jones the market capitalism The stock market crash of 1929 is an example of the flowing of water towards the lowest point in capitalism When the ability to purchase stocks in companies became public province it was not long before purchasing stocks in companies became public practice While the value of companies did gradually increase the influx of predominantly unsophisticated investors drove the market higher than the companies valuations could support A frenzy of greed developed in the market In the years leading up to 1929 everyone got into the act It is said that shoeshine boys were trading stocks on the sidewalks of Wall Street Speculative buying and selling reached a peak in October 1929 The following article by Mark Underwood describes how this flow back to the valley occurred The rapid increase in industrialization was fueling growth in the economy and technology improvements had the leading economists believing that the uprise would continue During this boom period wages increased along with consumer spending and stock prices began to rise as well Billions of dollars were invested in the stock market as people began speculating on the rising stock prices and buying on margin The enormous amount of unsecured consumer debt created by this speculation left the stock market essentially off balance Many investors caught up in the race to make a killing invested their life savings mortgaged their homes and cashed in safer investments such as treasury bonds and bank accounts As the prices continued to rise some economic analysts began to warn of an impending correction but they were largely ignored by the leading pundits Many banks eager to increase their profits began speculating dangerously with their investments as well Finally in October 1929 the buying craze began to dwindle and was followed by an even wilder selling craze On Thursday October 24 1929 the bottom began to fall out Prices dropped precipitously as more and more investors tried to sell their holdings By the end of the day the New York Stock Exchange had lost four billion dollars and it took exchange clerks until five o clock AM the next day to clear all the transactions By the following Monday the realization of what had happened began to sink in and a full blown panic ensued Thousands of investors many of them ordinary

  • Sincerity | Thomas Grové's Blog
    to think that the moral personal cultivation and conduct required in achieving a state of sincerity towards yourself and the awareness of your actions effect on others will yield a positive result To shape the future a better future right If we get to this stage then I would like to suggest a redefinition of sincerity Kindness and compassion virtue and respect clear thinking and right timing These basic human virtues if applied with sincerity are all of what makes up a great individual The embodiment of Ren and a deity among men I ve known a few of these people in my lifetime If you have too then you know what I m talking about They re the people who look you in the eye and who shake your hand or hug you with strength They are the people who give you the time of day as if you were their own son even if you re socially or physically different than they are They smile with a warm heart and without expectation offer the right words at the right time What they say and what they do impacts your reality perception of it more than anything else does They have become true to their nature and their nature is the same as the animals but with an understanding and compassion made possible from their advanced and calm well aimed brains mindset There s a quote from The Great Learning one of The Four Books a compilation of four Confucian texts considered to be some of the core teachings of Confucianism that must have influenced me greatly when reading it or have expressed ideas that I found to be true good because it goes along perfectly with what I have said so far What is meant by making the will sincere is allowing no self deception as when we hate a bad smell or love a beautiful colour This is called satisfying oneself Therefore the superior man will always be watchful over himself when alone When the inferior man is alone and leisurely there is no limit to which he does not go in his evil deeds Only when he sees a superior man does he then try to disguise himself concealing the evil and showing off the good in him But what is the use For other people see him as if they see his very heart Therefore the superior man always makes his will sincere The only part that I would really modify here is in the last sentence It was probably a translation mistake or something I would change it to say The superior man s will is always sincere Otherwise you run into a paradox if the man is making his will sincere than it isn t really sincere right This statement is echoed I m probably the one echoing in the Analects of Confucius This mention of sincerity is in regards to ritual very important for Confucius specifically the ritual of a three year
