Among the new Universities I would like to see established would be Universities of Consumption and Universities of Employment.
This is in response to the fact that all Universities are concentrating on production and marketing, taking employment for granted as a result of the existing economic system.
Since we have both underconsumption, overconsumption and wrong consumptions on this planet which destroy or diminish humans and the Earth, it is high time to deal seriously with this subject. And since a slowdown and changes of consumption habits are absolutely necessary in the world if we want to save the Earth, we should also study the concept and ways of proper, fulfilling employment in the western countries especially.
I have a whole file of original ideas in this field. Someone should write 2000 ideas for fulfilling employment of humans on planet Earth. The environment, spirituality and voluntary service provide great possibilities in countries where the machines have made much employment dispensable.

Decide to Love
Take this great, momentous decision
for all your life
Love your family
Love the Earth
Love the sun, the heavens and the stars
Love the good of the present, the past and the future
Love to see, to hear, to think, to learn,
to speak, to write, to communicate,
to do good, to sing, to be happy, to laugh
Love peace and everything
that is good on this planet
Love all living beings
Love your loving life
Irradiate your love
Make others love
Help humanity grow a global heart
Help this beautiful Earth become
the Paradise of Love
Love until it hurts
And spend your heaven
doing good on Earth.

WORD FOR THE DAY
If you have built castles in the air
your work need not be lost.
That is where they should be.
Now put the foundations under them.
- Henry David Thoreau
