Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500

    ~ Idea 324 ~    30 May 1995

In my Peace Park on Mt. Rasur, overlooking the University for Peace I have a bench of dreams where I ask visitors to sit, close their eyes and formulate a dream.  Following a rite which was taught to me by a girl from Holland, Mara van der Lugt, one takes a pebble or stone in each hand, presses the two hands together, closes one's eyes and dreams intensely.  When opening the eyes one throws one stone on the Earth, so that the sacred earth will remember the dream, and the other stone one takes home to be reminded of the dream.  I wish that benches of dreams be built in many places on Earth.

Humanity and the Earth badly need our dreams.  (See Ideas 729 and 749.)
By 1997 about two dozen have been built around the world.
