Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1364 ~    5 April 1998

I sometimes take out one of my old journals or Markings from past years to see what I thought at that time.  During the night I came across the following Marking in 1983, fifteen years ago:

"In a hundred years, capitalism and communism will be past history."

Well, it did not take 100 years for communism to disappear, and I wonder if it will take as much for capitalism.  I think it will be much sooner.  The collapse of the South Korean stock market last December was the first sign, but the US stopped it immediately with a donation of 10 billion dollars infinitely quicker than paying its past dues to the United Nations.  Within days no one spoke about it anymore.  But there will be other crises which will put an end to this second obsolete ideology of the 19th century or force it to change.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,  
Volume II Chapter 4 - Of Positive Living
Take a large city like New York or take the entire world.  If in this immense mass of people one human being, held erect by the will to live, suddenly lets go, do you think that he will survive?  No.  The will to stay erect, the will to live and to be fully oneself is the single, most important force available to us.
