And I'd like to start today by thanking Ricky in Dallas for calling that number and setting me straight. It's been an interesting week. Last week I posted a podcast on the second on sustainable prosperity. Which isn't up there now, so you can't listen to it. And when I did it, it didn't feel quite right. I didn't know what was going on, but I posted it anyhow. And the next day I talked to my brother, and I heard myself in the same space that I was in when I did the podcast, and that space was, I would call it, my indignant activist. In my book "Build your Money Muscles" I talk about how it's almost as if our bodies are like a boarding house, and inside the boarding house are lots of characters. There's the wounded child, the rebellious teenager, the wise investor, the wise old lady, or wise old man, and al these different characters.

Well, my indignant activist, who was very active during the Vietnam War when I used to get out there and form demonstrations and yell and scream, I was angry. And she's been pretty dormant for a long time. But over the last couple of months, there's been all this stuff going on inside of me about what's happening to the planet, and what's happening politically, and I kept trying to bring myself back to it with that, everything's in divine order and everything is fine. But somehow it just got the better of me, and really exploded. When I did that podcast last week, which was very judgmental and not very uplifting. As Ricky in Dallas said, he felt awful after he listened to it. And I can understand. And for that I really apologize. And so I've been looking at this for the last couple of days, and I knew I had to get myself out of that space, but when I do that I also try to find out what's going on and where it comes from, cause that's kind of my job, is to understand emotions and how they affect the dynamic of our lives. And someone, about two weeks ago a friend gave me Eckhart Tolay's new book "A New Worth" is the name of it, and...
