Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 298 ~ 4 May 1995
Each UN agency and world program should examine its situation in a vastly changing world and determine if some of its subjects do not warrant the creation of a new world agency.
For example: The UN Food and Agricultural Organization has such a vast task and the forests of this planet have such a priority that a UN World Forestry Agency should be created.
Life is a journey so rich, so beautiful: it can be a journey into ourself, into others, into the entire world and universe, into the past, present and future.
It can be a constant journey holding hands with God on this splendid planet in the star-filled heavens.

Creativeness often consists of merely turning up what is already there. Did you know that right and left shoes were thought up only a little more than a century ago?
Bernice Fitz-Gibbon, WORD FOR THE DAY
Address at Kingsley Hall
Listen and Watch here.
delivered 17 October 1931, London
There is an indefinable mysterious power that pervades everything. I feel it, though I do not see it. It is this unseen power which makes itself felt and yet defies all proof because it is so unlike all that I perceive through my senses. It transcends the senses.
But it is possible to reason out the existence of god to an [unintelligible] exchange. Even in ordinary affairs we know that people do not know who rules, or why, and how he rules. And yet they know that there is a power that certainly rules.
In my tour last year in Mysore I met many poor villagers and I found upon inquiry that they did not know who ruled Mysore. They simple said some god ruled it. If the knowledge of these poor people was so limited about their ruler, I, who am infinitely lesser in respect to god than they to their ruler need not be surprised if I do not realize the presence of god, the king of kings.
Nevertheless I do feel as the poor villagers felt about Mysore, that there is orderliness in the universe. There is an unalterable law governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is not a blind law, for no blind law can govern the conduct of living beings. And thanks to the marvelous researches of Sir J.C. Bose, it can now be proved that even matter is life.
That law then which governs all life is god. Law and the lawgiver are one. I may not deny the law or the lawgiver because I know so little about it or him, just as my denial or ignorance of the existence of an earthly power will avail me nothing. Even so, my denial of god and his law will not liberate me from its operation. Whereas, humble and mute acceptance of divine authority makes life’s journey easier even as the acceptance of earthly rule makes life under it easier.
I do dimly perceive that whilst everything around me is ever dying, ever guiding, there is underlying all that change a living power that is changeless, that holds all together; that creates, dissolves, and recreates. That informing power of spirit is god. And since nothing else that I see merely through the senses can or will persist, he alone is.
And if this power is benevolent or malevolent, I see it as purely benevolent. For, I can see that in the midst of death, life persists. In the midst of untruth, truth persists. In the midst of darkness, light persists. Hence I gather that god is life, truth, light. He is love. He is the supreme good. But, he is no god who merely satisfies the intellect, if he ever does. God to be god must rule the heart and transform it. He must express himself in ever smallest act of his [goodery?]. This can only be done through a definite realization more real than the fives senses can ever prove use.
Sense perceptions can be and often are false and deceptive however real they may appear to us. Where there is realization outside the senses it is [imperial?], it is proved not by extreme extraneous evidence, but in the transformed conduct and character of those who have felt the real presence of god within. Such testimony is to be found in the experiences of an unbroken line of prophets and sages in all countries and climes. To reject this evidence is to deny oneself. This realization is preceded by an immovable faith. He who would in his own person, test the fact of god’s presence can do so by a living faith.
And since faith itself cannot be proved by extraneous evidence, the safest course is to believe in the moral government of the world and therefore in the supremacy of the moral law, the law of truth and love. Exercise of faiths will be the safest where there is the clear determination summarily to reject all that is contrary to truth and love.
I confess that I have no argument to convince through reason. Faith transcends reason. All that I can advise is not to attempt the impossible.

Happy 87th Birthday
Robert Muller ...
You are invited to send your favorite ideas and dreams for a better world to Robert for his birthday celebration Thursday, March 11, 2010.
To send your happy birthday note you can reply to this email or here: Contact.
Here are two of the happy birthday notes:
Happy Birthday Robert,
Robert, May this next year be your best so far. Your work continues to inspire me deeply. You are a true Citizen Diplomat every moment representing the world you live in. You are the pioneer Citizen Diplomat.
These words came together for me today and describe you so clearly.
Tell Us The Story Of What You Did To Nurture A Better World
"Advancing peace one journey, one room at a time. We are Citizen diplomats giving our well-being to the kindness in like-hearted strangers. We are Citizen Diplomats holding the well-being of like-hearted strangers in our hands.
We are grass roots philanthropists bending our money, our rooms, our travel, our table, our culture in the direction of our values. We Citizen Diplomats live in a future that works for everyone and have returned to model how people live with one another and the planet there.
It is where your grandchildren and their children live. We know the story because these children always draw it from us. They ask us what we in a tumultuous world contributed that made it safe for them to live and grow, and laugh, and play.
They never get tired of that story and ask it time and time again.
'Please, Grampa and Grama, tell us again what you did to turn the world around.'"
Blessings to you.
