Leland contacted me to let me know of Robert's passing. My hope is that his soul is united with Ewert and other lifelong friends. Robert was such an inspiration to me. Am so happy to have met you both again last June. Love and peace, Ashley.

In loving memory of Dr. Robert Muller, the UN "Prophet of Hope" and inspiration to so many around the world.

Robert Muller, Former Assistant Secretary General of the UN to Three Secretaries General, passed away on September 20, 2010. He was the Co-Founder of the Int'l Day of Peace in 1981, the Founder of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica, and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize more than 20 times. Adopted into the Hopi Native American Tribe, he was lovingly known among UN Associates as a "Prophet of Hope."

In this clip, Robert Muller, Former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations and Former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica, discusses what he hopes for the future of humanity—which no doubt is changing. Muller, who has written many books including 7000 Ideas and Dreams ...

I am sorry to hear about the passing of Robert.
His words are often quoted by me in our global work.
He will be with me always.

love and gratitude,
"from the center which we call the race of men,
let the Plan of love and light work out..."

Dearest Barbara and family,

I am sending you something I included last year, in my father's, funeral service and celebration of his life. I read this to all our family and his friends at his church,  and gave it to everyone as part of a special booklet that I created of personal remembrances of all our beloved father's international contributions around the world.

I hope this reflection of your beloved comforts you and that you are able to share it with Dr. Muller's extended family, colleagues, and co-workers.  
When I die
If you need to weep,
Cry for your brother,
Walking the street beside you;
And when you need me
Put your arms around anyone
And give them what you need to give me.
I want to leave you something -
Something better than words or sound:
Look for me in the people I 've known or loved,
And if you cannot give me away
At least let me live in your eyes
And not on your mind.
You can love me most by letting hands touch hands
And by letting go of children
That need to be free.
Love does not die;
People do.
So when all that's left of me is love,
Give me away. 
Though taken from us, the ones we love live on.
Although they are now beyond the reach of our arms,
they will always be within the embrace of our never-ending love.                   

Through every moment of this difficult time,
you are being held close in my thoughts and my heart. 

                             Love,  Anne L.

Seldom did I have such a deep and joyous impression like meeting Robert (and you, Barbara). At the Hague Appeal for Peace in May 1999, you were present when Fred Stern, the rainbow man, created a rainbow in your honor. Linda Grover (from the Tree Island gathering, she sadly passed away beginning this year) and several of the participants joined. You signed a Millennium Meal table. A report and a photograph is still on my website
I will remember you as the special person who transformed from a cynic to embrace in love literally the whole world. May you be remembered as the shiny beacon that you were during your rich life. Happily you and Barbara shared so much that you will live on in numerous others. We are all One.

We were and are truly blessed with his joyful and de'light-filled spirit. My favorite memory is singing "Ode To Joy" by Beethoven at the top of my lungs, accompanied by Robert on his harmonica! Bless you, Barbara, on this journey. My thoughts are with you. Celebrating Robert's life is the greatest gift we can give him in his passing.

Dearest Barbara... I have so many wonderful and joyful memories of being with you and Robert, and am so very sad to know I won't see him again ... will miss our Santa Barbara lunches! In so many ways the two of you are models for us of happiness in marriage and love, which gets better all the time. Thank you for all you did to support Robert in his elder statesman years, in bringing forth so many impactful ideas and wisdom for us all -- especially Pathways To Peace and the UN Peoples Assembly. Robert will be greatly missed, and you will always be a special part of our family! Love you! Joanie & Jack Ciardelli

My dear mentor Robert Muller now leaves it up to all of us to continue to work co-creatively to create his Paradise Earth through loving, co-creative, co-empowering sustainable villages worldwide. He gave us all so much love, happiness and joy and we now continue to pass it on to the next generation. When we align each day with the Creative Source in the Universe, we align with our dear Robert once again...

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. All of us here on Meditation Mount are deeply moved by Robert's passing. He could not have chosen a more appropriate moment, soaring out on the hundreds of thousands of prayers for Peace being raised around the planet. His spirit was certainly with the 150 of us as we undertook a pilgrimage Walk of Peace here in Ojai.

Well done Robert! Your ascending has infused our UN International Day of Peace with your spirit and will carry us forward into the full realization of Paradise Earth! Thank you for all your gifts to us and Bless your journey onward and upward.

Madam Speaker, I rise today in honor and remembrance of Dr. Robert Muller, a lifelong champion for peace who served humanity tirelessly throughout his life.

Born in Belgium in 1923, Dr. Muller was raised in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France where he experienced unrelenting political and cultural turmoil. During World War II he was a member of the French Resistance and was imprisoned by the Germans during the Nazi occupation. In 1948, he won an essay contest with his entry about how to govern the world. The prize was an internship at the newly created United Nations.

The internship set him on a life path that led to 38 years of work behind the scenes at the United Nations where he rose to the official position of Assistant-Secretary General, serving three Secretaries General.

In 1986, Rodrigo Carazo, the President of Costa Rica, proposed that Dr. Muller become the chancellor of the UN University of Peace in Costa Rica of which he was the co-founder.

His deeply spiritual understanding of our planet and the life that graces it led him to create a “World Core Curriculum” which is taught at 34 Robert Muller Schools around the world. The Curriculum earned him the UNESCO Peace Education Prize in 1989 and the honorary title of “father of global education.” He also received the Albert Schweitzer International Prize for the Humanities and the Eleanor Roosevelt Man of Vision Award.

He was a prolific writer, having published fourteen books in various languages, including “2000 Ideas and Dreams for a Better World”, in which he proposed concrete, visionary ideas designed to create a peaceful and harmonious planet.

Madam Speaker and Colleagues, please join me in honor and remembrance of Dr. Robert Muller, who will be deeply missed. I offer my heartfelt condolences to his entire family and to his many friends. Dr. Muller’s life is one to celebrate, as he lived it with a generous heart, a true joy for living and unwavering love for is family, friends, colleagues and our beautiful planet.
