Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1217 ~    9 November 1997

The notion of sustainable development is now an accepted concept, after fifty years of endless, unlimited development.  Still we must go one step further and speak of unsustainable, Earth destroying development, and speak of the cessation of growth in many cases and places of the Earth.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
The greatest, most advanced, most enduring, most treasured beloved human beings on this planet are not the kings, emperors, presidents, businessmen, not even inventors and scientists.  They are the great spiritual leaders, the great artists like Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Leonardo da Vinci, the builders of cathedrals and Taj Mahals.

Alas, in our current, materialistic society this chain of the truly great ones has been broken.  Their birth is smothered by the noise, cheapness, material and money craze of modern society. 

Our best hope rests in a spiritual, classical Renaissance.
