Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1132 ~ 16 August 1997
In the United States there is now a peoples' and parents movement of "One week without television." The results are apparently very positive: the children speak more to each other and with the parents; they undertake activities of their own and are more creative. But when the week is over, the children rush back to the television set in order to catch up with their favorite programs.

I propose that there should be a world movement "Families without television." I can list the magnificent benefits in terms of personal life, happiness and creativity I have derived from giving away my television set years ago. And with my remarriage, we have maintained this rule: no television ever as long as we will live, be it in our home or outside. We have never missed anything, only gained a lot of more intensive personal, happy, creative life.

Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 5 - Of Love
Once I was asked to love the French and to hate the Germans. Then I was asked to love the Germans and to hate the French. And each time they gave me a rifle to shoot the others. So I decided not to hate anyone anymore as long as I lived and to refuse any rifles.
Love your enemy as you love yourself. Isn't that one of the supreme commandments?

Food Abundance from Food Waste
Abundance doesn't follow giving until giving becomes its own reward.

Food Abundance from Food Waste

Every week they provide food for as many as 1,500 households in Marin County (CA). They don't charge for the food. Nor do they get paid themselves. Who are these people and why do they do this? They are two community elders, Ruth Schwartz and her husband Curt Kinkead, supported by a team of about 100 volunteers. They do it because Curt "gets fed by the joy he sees in the people who come to collect the food he delivers." Ruth adds, "If we [Ruth and Curt] do something together where we face out into the world and make a contribution, that is a key piece of having our relationship thrive." Respecting Our Elders started in 2005 when Curt and Ruth, residents of a subsidized housing development, noticed that some of their neighbors weren't getting enough to eat. { read more }
