[GMW #4450] Future Saints Like Robert Schuman Will Be Dressed In Civilian Clothes


[GMW #4450] Future Saints Like Robert Schuman Will Be Dressed In Civilian Clothes   Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4836 ~
"Future saints will be dressed in civilian clothes."

This is a remark by Henri Eschbach, a friend of Robert Schuman, the founder of the European Union, when the latter was on the point of becoming a monk instead of staying in politics.  What a loss it would have been!  We would not have today a European Union, model for more unions of nations and a first, major step towards a World Union.  We are in the process of making Robert Schuman a saint.  I am happy and honored to be a member of his canonization committee.

July 2002: ten African countries created the African Union.  That was another dream of Robert Schuman.  He dreamt of an Eurafrican Union.  May it happen too.

A Catholic Sister wrote to me:
"You are a morning of hope in the presence of whom others become joyful because of your hope. May this someday be true of all humans."

Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

Cheerfulness is also an excellent wearing quality.
It has been called the bright weather of the heart.

[GMW #4448] United States Decline Of Population Offset By Immigration


[GMW #4448] United States Decline Of Population Offset By Immigration Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4834 ~
The decline of the western population of 40 million to the year 2050 might be compensated by an increasing number of immigrants.  This is especially the case of the United States which will have considerable immigrants from Latin America, especially Mexico and will be able to maintain at least the level of its population.

Several years ago, one day, walking from the UN with a dear friend, Janis Rozé, representing a Non-governmental Organization at the UN, he asked me if I had an idea for a new venture his organization could undertake. I thought it over and said to him that what was very needed these days was to give hope to the people. Why not create an Institute for the Science of Hope? He liked the idea, submitted it to his colleagues and a Center for a Science of Hope* was created in New York City in 1986, to my great delight.

I have received since then, in addition to their HopeWatch magazine, a remarkable book Aspects of Hope (1993), which has on its back this statement of mine:

"In all my writings I have advocated for years that we should apply scientific methods to the study of bold concepts modeled by humanity over the millennia to keep it on an upward path, concepts such as hope, love, beauty, joy, happiness, faith. Scientists shy away from them because they do not lend themselves so easily to scientific investigation. But if we try, we will discover many things."

In 1982 I had already written a book entitled Planet of Hope with chapters on the Span of Life, the Four Cardinal Virtues, Writing and Speaking, Our Growth and Evolution, Work for Peace and the Birth of a Global Age. In 1990 this was followed by a volume of Dialogues of Hope with various personalities on three subjects: Political Hope, Spiritual Hope and Individual Hope. Alas, these books are out of print. Perhaps someday they will be republished in The Classics of Robert Muller, planned by my wife Barbara.

A teacher comes, they say, when you are ready.
And if you ignore their presence,
they will speak to you more loudly.
But you have to be quiet to hear.

[GMW #4447] Affordable Nurturing Homes For Everyone


[GMW #4447] Affordable Nurturing Homes For Everyone Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4833 ~
In big US cities they have now new buildings, almost skyscrapers for single room occupancies: one room, a bedroom, a bathroom and common tenants' rooms with televisions and other facilities.  They rent very cheaply at about $100 a month.  They have one great advantage for society: the occupants are not likely or less likely to get married and to have children.  Perhaps very costly housing and very restricted lodgings are two factors of the decline of the western population.  Builders are destroying their own future market.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II - The Art of Personal Happy Living
Chapter 5 - Of Love

Decide To Love
        Take this great, momentous decision
        for all your life
        love yourself
        Love your family
        Love the Earth
        Love humanity
        Love the sun, the heavens and the stars
        Love God
        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.
