Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1051 ~    27 May 1997

A case of implementation, Benches of Dreams (see ideas 67 and 324):

Recently I was invited to speak to a group of senior students of psychology at the University of California in Santa Barbara.  I noticed near the entrance of their building a well located bench to sit on and relax.  I took out of my pocket a Bench of Dreams stick-on and affixed it on the bench.

During my speech to the students I spoke of the psychological importance of dreams and said: I just noticed outside of your building that you have a bench with a label Bench of Dreams.  Well, sit on it and formulate your dreams.  You will be astonished by the psychological effects.

I told them also how I escaped from an arrest by the Gestapo during World War II by putting myself into a positive psychological mood and then came up with the idea of how to escape from them (see story in my book Most of All They Taught Me Happiness  and in the popular book Stone Soup for the World).

Among the comments of the students sent to me by their professor, was this rewarding one: "From now on, after having heard Mr. Muller, I will never consider anything impossible anymore."

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
Creation is beautiful if we love it and ugly if we hate it.  Beauty is therefore a child of our mind.  We can be co-Creators with God of the beauty of our planet or co-Creators with the devil of its ugliness.

The question is not 'Can you make a difference?' You already do make a difference. It's just a matter of what kind of a difference you want to make during your life on this planet.
