Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1270 ~ 1 January 1998
What better way to start the new year with more ideas for the year 2000 than to reproduce this beautiful text:
ODE TO THE YEAR 2000
*A song for UN/50 and The Great Millennium Campaign inspired by "My Dream 2000" - a classic by Robert Muller from his books, The Birth of a Global Civilization and Idea #1 of Ideas and Dreams
From Robert Muller, long-time Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations: "Don Topin's Ode to The Year 2000 is marvelous. May I photocopy it and send it to people. It can go far during the next years to the Year 2000. We must give it vast dissemination."
From Don Toppin: "Permission is hereby granted to all readers to photocopy and distribute widely, especially for singalongs."
**The music to this and other Great Millennium Songs is available with song folio and audiocassette to donors of $20.00 or more payable to: World Millennium Network, c/o Toronto/2000, 390 Bay Street, Toronto, Canada, M5H2Y2, Tel. # (416) 214-2000.
(The World Millennium Network and The Great Millennium Campaign are initiatives of the Global Foundation)
WORLD MILLENNIUM NETWORK
The committee on Toronto/2000 was initiated in 1980 by the Toronto Futurists Group (1972) in association with the Department of Adult Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the Planning Commission of the City of Toronto. The purposes are to build bridges of understanding, locally and globally, and to foster a greater sense of personal and organizational responsibility toward the future.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
One of my greatest joys and inspirations when I was a little boy was to go to the early morning mass, the "mass at dawn", and to listen to the music of an old organ player. I was transported to heaven.
This is where I coined my child's aphorism, the central, most permanent one of my life:
"Das Leben ist göttlich", "Life is divine."
This is also where I dreamt to become a great composer, a dream frustrated by poverty.
I wonder how many similar dreams of humans are frustrated and allowed to die on our Planet of Dreams

WORD FOR THE DAY
How did the rose ever open its heart and
give to this world all of its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of Light
against its being;
otherwise we all remain too frightened.
Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky
