Robert Schuman from my region of Alsace-Lorraine who was the main founder of the European Union once told me that that union could not have been created if there had not been three Christian Democrats in leading political positions in France, Germany and Italy, namely himself as Minister of Foreign Affairs of France, Konrad Adenauer as Prime Minister of Germany and Alcide de Gasperi, as Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy.
Well, from a recent report of the institute devoted to the memory of Robert Schuman I learned with dismay that in the preamble of the European constitution the mention of the Christian roots of the European Union were deleted! How small the minds of some people can be!

Each person on Earth should have a guru (teacher), a master, a sage, a confessor, a spiritual person to talk to, to turn to for advice. The function of guru should be adopted world-wide. Wise elderly guides should become gurus. The teaching of wisdom should be the main function of the third age, or age of vanaprashta, the "preparation for the beyond".

the wise grows it under his feet.
