Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1133 ~ 17 August 1997As we talked about the concept and virtue of forgiveness, Barbara came up with the excellent idea that the United Nations should establish a yearly World Prize for Forgiveness, to give to countries and other entities who would forgive other entities the evil and wrongdoings they did to them A great recent example is that of New Zealand where the Maori indigenous people forgave the white New Zealanders and their government the wrongdoings inflicted upon them in the past.
She proposes that each member country of the UN should contribute 100,000 dollars to a capital fund for such a prize. Multiplied by 185 countries, this would yield a capital of 18 and a half million dollars which would produce at say 3 percent of revenue a yearly prize of 555,000 dollars.
I proposed elsewhere that the UN should establish a whole series of world prizes for great causes, easily financed by a community of 185 nations. The money could come from a reduction of military expenses. Let us open an unprecedented era of world prizes for good causes and achievements given by the United Nations and its agencies. A Committee of the UN should study this idea and start with giving out the first prizes in the year 2000. It also shows what wonderful things could be achieved if nations would put some of their resources in common.

Volume II Chapter 5 - Of Love
Love is the great transcending force of attraction which alone can break the nemesis of war and violence.
You attract what you love. You repulse what you dislike or hate. It cannot be otherwise. You are the master, a miracle-maker or disaster-maker, a good-maker or an evil-maker.

WORD FOR THE DAY
True wealth is not measured in money or status or power.
It is measured in the legacy
we leave behind for those
we love and those we inspire.
