Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 343 ~    18 June 1995

The world of today is in the same state as were the American States when great leaders stood up and declared that the warrings and divisions between the states could not continue, that America was in a chaos, with utter waste and duplication between the states.  A Constitutional Assembly was held in Philadelphia which met for ten years of bitter debates until it finally produced and adopted the US Constitution with its wise system of balance of powers.

The world needs today pressingly a similar initiative.  There is need for great leaders of this planet to decide that a world constitutional Assembly be held to draft a constitution for proper Earth government.

Perhaps it might take longer since the world is much more complicated than were the American states.  But it is also more urgent because this time the whole Earth is in jeopardy and danger of terminal illness.

Volume II Chapter 14 - Of Writing
How many great thoughts and beautiful statements I had in my head during my youth and many years of my life.  But I did not write them down, and most of them are gone for ever. 

Always carry with you a notebook to write down the flashes of truth, the observations, the ideas and dreams that come to your mind, heart and soul.

Rabindranath Tagore’s Birthday May 8

Rabindranath Tagore’s compassion ran deep and permeated his writing.

In 1891, he went to manage his father’s estate, living close to villagers and developing sympathy for them which became the keynote for later writings.

Although he was awarded the knighthood in 1915, he surrendered it four years later to protest the British massacre of Indians.

In “Mind Without Fear,” Tagore shares his dream of a world that’s not been “broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls."

According to the Bengali calendar, the date of Tagore's birth is 25th Baisakh, 1268. It is uncertain where this date falls on the Gregorian calendar, May 8 being one of the possibilities.

For photos, selected works, and Tagore's conversations with Einstein and H.G. Wells, please see this Rabindranath Tagore webpage.

Titled Prayer in the original Bengali poem.
Tagore translated the poem to English
with the title Where The Mind Is Without Fear

Mind Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
     by narrow domestic walls;

Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
     into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into
     ever-widening thought and action --

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
The last line, for these times, could also be:
Into that heaven of freedom, the planet can awake.
