Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 323 ~    29 May 1995

A decade ago, during a visit in Kansas City, I learned that the city considered itself to be the heart of America.  They wondered how this could be better known.  I suggested that they plant a forest of trees in the form of a big heart near the airport, visible from the sky.

Ten years later when I returned to the city, I was shown the Heartforest which expands each year thanks to additional rows of trees planted by children on each Earth Day.

My dream is that many heart forests will be grown in many places of the world, thereby expressing our love for trees and for our beautiful planet.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume III Chapter I - The Span Of Life
I repeat these words by Goethe which so well apply when you have decided to be a good-doer on Earth.  They applied fully to my life.  I could give innumerable examples of them, write a whole book on them.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.

Concerning acts of initiative and creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

That the moment one definitely commits oneself then Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamt would come their way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Begin it now.
- Goethe

Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons. It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
