Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1305 ~ 5 February 1998
The American author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: "Every great and commanding moment in the annals of the world is the triumph of some enthusiasm."
The trouble at the end of the twentieth century is that our predominant enthusiasm is for business, money, even more consumption, and acquisition of ever more "goods" and wealth.
Human enthusiasm in the 21st century should be for our wonderful planet Earth and the fulfillment of the miracle of human life. It should be an enthusiasm of love, coming from the heart (en theos, God in us).
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 4 - Of Positive Living
One day I was delivering a lecture on the positive elements of humanity's future to a group of missionaries.
When I finished, one of them complained that my optimism was hard to believe. Could I please give my reasons for it. The audience seemed to be in accord and was eagerly expecting my reply. I put on a surprised face, looked at him sternly and after a moment of calculated silence uttered these words:
'This is the last question I would have expected from you. How can you address to a layman a question which is in your domain, namely that of spirituality, of the "miracle of faith"? I am tempted to ask you to explain it to me, for the mysterious power of faith is at the core of your religious life as it is of my world servant's life. But you had 2000 years of experience while I had only a few decades."
I learned a great lesson that evening. Never before had I thought of the real depth and significance of these momentous words: "the miracle of faith".
