Welcome to Episode 1354 1354 and Merry Christmas. So Today, we will do a little bit of a special episode a little bit of a Christmas gift. This is a gift that was given to me when I was 17 years old. It came from Denis waitley. But he was not the originator. Denis waitley was originally on our show is episode number 150. A long time ago. There’s a lot of dispute about where this came from. But I always thought it was beautiful. I always thought it had very good advice. You know, sometimes you teach what you need to learn most. And I think that definitely applies to this home that I’m going to share with you. And you may have heard it before. So there’s a lot of debate about who the author is. There has been litigation over this great little piece over the years. Who owns the copyright, and I guess nobody owns the copyright. That’s my understanding. So you know, the possible author of it tried to call copyrighted or did copyrighted originally in 1927. But then, that copyright, I guess, was not upheld by the courts. I don’t know. You know, that’s complicated. This area of the law is very complex stuff. But there’s even rumor that this was originally on a, I believe in English church a couple centuries ago. So I don’t know where it really came from. I’m not sure anybody really does. Maybe it was max airman, the possible author from Terre Haute, Indiana. I don’t know you can look it up, do your research on it, if you wish, but it is a great little piece. It’s been reprinted many times there are lots of things online that offer printable versions of this will put a link to what I think is a really good one. You might want to print it out and use it for yourself and share it with other people. It’s called dissin urata. And what that means, is in Latin, it means Things desired to sit urata. The translation in Latin is things desired. And as we all know, Latin is no longer a spoken language. But it is used a lot in law and medicine and things like that. So, there you go. Anyway, I’ll just read it to you and I hope you enjoy it and it’ll be, it’ll be my Christmas gift to you not originally from me, of course, but I thought it was very profound, and it says, Go placidly amid the noise in the face. Remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. speak your truth quietly and clearly. And listen to others, even the dollar and Vietnam they to have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others may become vain and bitter. For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career. However, it is a real possession and changing fortunes of exercise crushes in your business affairs. The world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is. Many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere Life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love. For the face of all ready and disenchantment. It is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of the spirit to shield you in suddenly misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginations. Many fears are born fatigue and loneliness. Beyond wholesome discipline. Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe. No less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here too. And whether or not it is clear to you no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you can see him to be and whatever your labor’s and aspirations and the noisy confusion of life. Keep peace in your soul with all its Sham treachery and broken dreams. It’s still a beautiful world, he cheerful, strive to be happy.

Isn’t that great? I really love that when I first heard Denis waitley read it. So I thought I’d share it with you that is decider Radha potentially by Max Ehrmann. 1927. But again, there’s some dispute about that. So we do not know for sure. But you know, one of the lines I really liked there is the part where it says, beyond a wholesome discipline. Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe. No less than The trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And you know, that’s so interesting when you hear all of this really crazy ideology from the radical left, they act as though we do not have a right to be here that Humans do not have a right to be here. Somehow. Everything else has a right to be here. Except people. It’s a crazy idea. Everyone has their contribution to make. You have a right to be here to. Anyway, I just think that is a great poem. It just sums up so much of life. And it is wonderful. So to sit urata go check it out. in the show notes at Jason Hartman calm you will find a link to this to what I think is one of the better printable versions of it. So go check that out at Jason Hartman calm. I think tomorrow will do that story about the economy of the Arctic Circle, which is pretty interesting. I know. We didn’t get to do that today, but until them Merry Christmas and we will talk to you tomorrow.
