[GMW #3880] Arrogance Is Bound To Provoke A Reaction

[GMW #3880] Arrogance Is Bound To Provoke A Reaction Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4275 ~
In the evening of Monday, 10 September 2001 Barbara and I arrived late at Newark Airport, from a global conference on global consciousness and spirituality in Canada. As we were driven by our daughter Solange to her home in Cold Spring in the Hudson Valley we saw for a good stretch the skyscrapers of Manhattan, especially the Empire State Building and the two tall towers of the World Trade Center, all lit up in the night.

I was thinking: how can a country and a city be so arrogant and advertise their superiority, their imperial character, their being the center of world trade, with sky-scraping, insulting buildings like the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center? That arrogance is bound to provoke a reaction.

Barbara and my daughter were surprised at my unusual silence during the entire car trip.

It was one of my extra-sensory perceptions that something terrible was going to happen, but I did not know what. I only knew that it would not harm us, that we were not in danger. The following morning when we woke up we learned of the terror attack against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. And when I told my story to Barbara's son, he commented that another building in Manhattan was to be destroyed, namely the Empire State Building.

so that each individual life can be divine.

I have grown tired of the articulate utterances of men and things.
The Mystical in Art, the Mystical in Life, the Mystical in Nature this is what I am looking for.

It is absolutely necessary for me to find it somewhere.

[GMW #3879] What Living Species Would You Select To Be Born Again To?

[GMW #3879] What Living Species Would You Select To Be Born Again To? Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4274 ~
Walking from our farmlet on sacred Mt. Rasur to the UN University for Peace and seeing so many beautiful birds and butterflies I asked myself: if I were offered to be reborn after my death into another living species, which one would I select? The answer was: a beautiful bird or a beautiful butterfly, if possible a blue morpho in the tropical forests of sacred Mt. Rasur.

I felt how important the simplest things were, like feeling proud, finding something funny, stretching yourself, retreating into yourself.

[GMW #3878] Create The First World University Of Happiness

[GMW #3878] Create The First World University Of Happiness Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4273 ~
Happiness is the most common, universal desire of human beings and yet would you believe it: there is not a single university on Earth which teaches happiness and gives masterships or doctorates of happiness.

How can such a gross deficiency prevail in a humanity which calls itself intelligent?

Thank God the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica is now correcting the gap in the field of peace. But we still badly need a world or UN University of Happiness.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume I - The Great Scene of Creation
Chapter 5 - The Miracle of Individual Life
The first and greatest commandment on planet Earth should be:

"Thou shall not kill, not even in the name of a nation nor a religion, nor anyone else."

War and its killing tools must be totally eliminated from this planet.  Under no circumstance can they ever be justified, for they are against the sanctity, the miracle, the uniqueness of individual human life.

All problems and conflicts on this planet must be solved by peaceful means and methods. Any other ways which harm or kill human lives must be declared inhuman and outlawed.

There can be no excuse.

[GMW #3877] Create A World Spiritual Information Board - Find Commonality World-Wide

[GMW #3877] Create A World Spiritual Information Board - Find Commonality World-Wide  Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4272 ~
I wonder what kind of practical proposals could be made and instored by the new World Commission on Global Consciousness and Spirituality.

I woke up with the idea that it should create what I would call a World Spiritual Information Board.

Namely a place with wise religious people to whom people around the world could turn to get spiritual advice. For example, in our world of growing work abroad what would a family of Taoist or Buddhist faith whose father works in a multinational corporation in Holland do with their spirituality? They will not find a Taoist or a Buddhist Temple there. They could be advised to take interest in a Christian or any other religion existing in Holland and compare them with their own, exchanging experiences and discover what they have in common.

In Latin America one is greeted in the morning with the words: 
Como amaneció?  How did you wake up? 
I always answer: 
Amanecí! I woke up. 
That alone is vital.

[GMW #3876] Sovereignty To Natural Human Groups - Ethnic, Linguistic, Family Clans, Religions, Settlements

[GMW #3876] Sovereignty To Natural Human Groups - Ethnic, Linguistic, Family Clans, Religions, Settlements Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4271 ~
If sovereignty is so ominous, so good, so proper, so sacred to the point that it cannot be alienated, why then not apply it to much more

natural human groups such as;
ethnic groups, linguistic groups, family clans, natural settlements, religions, etc.

rather than limit it to unnatural nations which are the products of wars, conquests, invasions, purchases, marriages, migrations, etc.

The current political system of sovereign nation states is totally unnatural. They are the main cause for the maintenance of militaries and incredible nuclear armaments endangering the whole human race. How can anyone still admire nations?

Many indigenous people of the world greet each other with the words: 
"I am happy that you are alive."
What a great, meaningful greeting this is!

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
