It is wonderful to hear play and sing at the end of the Sunday mass in Ciudad Colon, the seat of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica, the Ode to Joy of Beethoven with its heavenly notes and lofty words by Schiller calling all humans to brotherhood. The tears come to my eyes when I hear the simple choir of peasants perform this heavenly music. I dream that the Ode to Joy will be played some day in all churches and temples of the world.
I wish also that it be played at my funeral mass which I want to be a mass of resurrection in white as were the masses of Teilhard de Chardin and Emmanuel de Breuvery.
I will also leave behind a recording of my performance of the Ode to Joy on my harmonica which my grandfather taught me to play. It will be my good-bye to earthly life.
I wish to be buried into the Earth without a coffin, on sacred Mount Rasur so that I can resurrect soonest into other vegetal and animal life forms, possibly into a beautiful, lofty, inspiring tree spreading out its leaves to the cosmic rays of the sun.
This will be the contribution of my life in another fascinating form.
Re: [GMW #1568] A Boarder Free World - A World Union - the words border & boarder
Dear Robert and Friends - isn't the word for today's thought BORDER (boundaries between countries/nations) instead of BOARDER (a room mate)? A border free world is a concept written about by Jesuit mystic and French philosopher Teihard de Chardin (Taurus, May 1, 1881) in his book The Phenomena of Man? - Risa ---
Exactly, Risa. Thank you for the needed correction. The title has been corrected here. - Boarders, too, should live in a border free world, along with everyone else.
I believe Robert knew Teilhard de Chardin and perhaps worked with him. Whether he did or not, Robert quotes Teilhard many places in his 7000 ideas for a better world and in his books. There is even a book by Margaret McGurn entitled Planetary Consciousness in the thought of Teilhard de Chardin and Robert Muller.
Robert also wrote the book, The Desire to Be Human, International essays on Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, co-edited with Leo Zonneveld, Mirananda Ed Wassenaar, Holland
Robert also quotes Teilhard in A Testimony to Hope and Plea for Audacity, here:
"The age of nations has passed. Now, unless we wish to perish, we must shake off our old prejudices and build the Earth. The more scientifically I regard the world, the less can I see any possible biological future for it except in the active consciousness of its unity." - Teilhard de Chardin
