Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1229 ~ 21 November 1997
In idea number 625 I note that the UN Charter does not contain the words Earth, nature or resources nor does it speak of the environment, a word coined by the UN only twenty-five years later.
I recommend therefore that the Charter be revised in order to make it more responsive to the new environmental challenges faced by the Earth and humanity. Attention should be paid to the recommendation of the European Parliament to set up an International Environment Court, a World Environment Agency and a Consultative Parliamentary Assembly of the UN.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
I have always considered my work for the UN to be a work of art. All world servants should do the same. Our work indeed is to fashion a peaceful, harmonious, incredibly beautiful world

The Religion Of Man
From His Oxford, England Lectures 1930
'We can never go beyond man in all that we know and feel.'Rabindranath Tagore is unequivocal in his faith. He appreciates the intellectual triumphs of science, but he writes as a poet and philosopher.
Each person must always be a music-maker and dreamer of dreams; they must never lose, in their material quests, their longing for the touch of the divine.
Tagore traces the growth of the idea of God from primitive notions to universality. Today, as he says, all barriers are down and
'The God of humanity has arrived at the gates
of the ruined temple of the tribe.'
