[GMW #4530] Consider Nature Our Main Capital - It Must Be Protected


[GMW #4530] Consider Nature Our Main Capital - It Must Be Protected Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000

~ Idea 4916 ~
To continue to admire the United States can be an error. The American dream was correct for almost a hundred years, but now many things have gone wrong.

In some cities of the US there are no birds left. The US model of constant, endless economic 'growth' should no longer be imitated indiscriminately world-wide.

Nature must more and more be considered as our main capital.

A lovely story sent to me by a reader:
"One night I dreamed that I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across my mind. In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was only one."

"This bothered me because I noted that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord: `You promised me, Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there was only one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there with me?'

"The Lord replied, “The times when you saw only one set of footprints, my child, I was carrying you."

Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

[GMW #4529] Reversing The Destruction Of Earth's Nature And Elements


[GMW #4529] Reversing The Destruction Of Earth's Nature And Elements Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000

~ Idea 4915 ~
I wonder how many years this Earth's nature and elements will still have until humans will have destroyed them.

In my estimate a hundred years, not more.

A woman once apologized for not coming to one of my lectures at the local parish:

"Something terrible happened. My fifteen year old daughter was killed in an automobile accident. She and five other young people were riding in a car driven by a boy who had just received his driver's license. He wanted to show off and he ran into a telephone pole. She was sitting in the middle of the back of the car, usually the safest place, but the Lord wanted her to be the only one to lose her life."

After a silence she added:
"I do not discuss or question the ways of God. I thank Him for having given her to me for fifteen years."

I thought for myself:
"What strength and consolation religion gives! What would an atheist or rationalist have said?"

[GMW #4528] Designated Areas Where Growth Is Prohibited

[GMW #4528] Designated Areas Where Growth Is Prohibited Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000

~ Idea 4914 ~
Humans have become a destructive species of the Earth. There is now a theory of the limits of growth, of sustainable development; but this is not sufficient.

There should be certain areas in the world where growth would be prohibited. A list of them should be established by the UN World Environment Program.

To those who tell me: "Only God can bring us happiness", I answer: "Look at those children playing and smiling at each other. See those young people loving each other and drinking from each other's eyes and lips. They do not think of God at that moment. God might be there all right, smiling and saying : "Play, children, play. Love, young people, love. It is you who by playing and loving cause me happiness". But they do not have to think of God at that moment, and God understands this perfectly well.

Gratefulness is there from the very beginning, because it is always a loving listening to whatever comes your way, and if you lovingly listen to it, you are grateful for it.

[GMW #4527] Accelerate Humanity's Progress By Reducing Sovereign Nation-State Impunity

[GMW #4527] Accelerate Humanity's Progress By Reducing Sovereign Nation-State Impunity  Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000

~ Idea 4913 ~
It astonishes me that such an archaic institution as the sovereign nation-state should still exist.  It retards enormously the progress of humanity. 

Let us do something about that.

My aunt and Godmother Eulalie would have never been considered a success by modern standards. She didn't study, she didn't drive, she didn't like to leave her village, she never took a subway or an airplane, which she considered to be mechanical monsters.

And yet she was one of the happiest persons on Earth: she liked to cook — and what a marvelous cook she was! — she loved her home, her family, her preserves; she attended with love and flowers the tombs of the family; and for her own, personal, intimate life she had God as a companion.

She was happy to live near the church of the village. She heard her bells, saw them from the window, and attended every service she could. Her husband, the headmaster of the local school, a socialist and atheist, often apologized for having a naive, gullible, religious wife. But I wondered which of the two was the happiest and closest to the greatness and mysteries of life.

She was.
