Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1258 ~ 20 December 1997
Our whole Earth and nature are a Temple of God. No human-made temple will ever be able to match or replace it. It is high time to organize human life on this Earth in a manner that nature and Earth are again the paradise, the cherished, inimitable well-preserved Temple of God.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
Pope John Paul II, during his historic visit to the United Nations in 1979 considered UN officials to be the carvers of the stones, the builders of the Cathedral Earth.
This is what he said:
"The builders of the pyramids in Egypt and Mexico, of the temples in Asia, of the cathedrals in Europe were not only the architects who laid out the designs, or those who provided financing, but also, and in no small way, the carvers of the stones, many of whom never had the satisfaction of contemplating in its entirety the beauty of the masterpiece their hands helped create. And yet, they were producing a work of art that would be the object of admiration for generations to come.
You are in so many ways the carvers of the stones. Even a lifetime of dedicated service will not always enable you to see the finished monument of universal peace, of fraternal collaboration and of true harmony between peoples. Sometimes you will catch a glimpse of it, in a particularly successful achievement, in a problem solved, in the smile of a happy and healthy child, in a conflict avoided, in a reconciliation of minds and hearts achieved. More often, you will experience only the monotony of your daily labors, or the frustrations of bureaucratic entanglements. But know that your work is great and that history will judge your achievements with favor.
The challenges that the world community will face in the coming years and decades will not diminish. The rapidly changing pace of world events, the tremendous steps forward of science and technology will increase both the potential for development and the complexity of the problems. Be prepared, be capable, but above all have confidence in the ideal you serve.
