The Path: A Market Maker’s Financial Path to Spiritual Awakening is the diary of how a member of a major stock exchange found his true spiritual path while working in the “snake pit.” Author Matthew Roland Adams explains the fundamentals of option trading while telling the story of how option trading success can be achieved once you learn to truly see what is going on in this financial and politically controlled world. He has a spiritual view of the world that he believes extends to financial markets.
This—his personal diary—offers an opportunity to take a look at equity options trading from the floor perspective. Those who work there learn to look at markets with a view towards providing fairness, speed, and efficiency. The overriding journey to success for us all is a spiritual evolution. And even when we think we need a diversion from that path or reject it out of hand, the universe may dictate otherwise. Through his journal, Adams talks honestly about spiritual consciousness and how it engages us when we least expect it and in places we thought were void of any spiritual essence—like the trading floor.
The Path leads us to where we need to be spiritually in spite of our best efforts and enables us to view success as enlightened.
