Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1021 ~    27 April 1997

The next two great, global celebrations which should be held by humanity are:

- in 1998, the fiftieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; (This has been done.  The United Nations has declared 1998 Human Rights Year.)

- in 2000, the world-wide celebration of our entry into a new century and millennium.  It was my first idea of these 2000 ideas and dreams started on 11 July 1994.

For the record I reproduce it here again.  I wrote it twenty years ago for Earth Day 1977, at the suggestion of anthropologist Margaret Mead, who considered like Sigmund Freud that a global anthropology should be next on the agenda of world affairs.

My Dream 2000

I dream
that on 1 January 2000
The whole world will stand still
In prayer, awe and gratitude
For our beautiful, heavenly Earth
And for the miracle of human life.

I dream
That young and old, rich and poor,
Black and white,
People from North and South,
From East and West,
From all beliefs and cultures
Will join their hands, minds and hearts
in an unprecedented, universal
Bimillennium Celebration of Life.

I dream
That during the year 2000
Innumerable celebrations and events
Will take place all over the globe
To gauge the long road covered by humanity
To study our mistakes
And to plan the feats
Still to be accomplished
For the full flowering of the human race
In peace, justice and happiness.

I dream
That the few remaining years
To the Bimillennium
Be devoted by all humans, nations and institutions
To unparalleled thinking, action,
Inspiration, elevations,
Determination and love
To solve our remaining problems
And to achieve
A peaceful, united human family on Earth.

I dream
That the year 2000
Will be declared World Year of Thanksgiving
by the United Nations.*

I dream
That the third millennium
Will be declared
And made
Humanity's First Millennium of Peace

*The UN General Assembly approved this proposal on 20 November 1997.

This dream has spread around the world in the following languages:  French, Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese and Dutch.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
May your life be a beautiful work of art.  Work at it always.  Make it your priority, your purpose, your ideal.  Be able to say to yourself:  I have made my life a resplendent work of art.
