There is a lot of talk and complaint in the UN and in the public about non-compliance of UN decisions by member governments. The issue of non-compliance of the Agenda 21 for the improvement of the environment, agreed to in Rio de Janeiro, even led to the holding this summer of a special session of the UN General Assembly on the subject. The results were nil.
I suggest that the Agenda 21 be brought to the attention of all local communities and relevant institutions in the world, who can implement them without waiting for action by central governments. Nothing prevents a city or province or business from implementing the Agenda. The result world-wide would be considerable.
The situation also raises the urgency of considering a proper Earth government as I outlined earlier which would give the United Nations or a new world institution like the European Union the basic legislative authority to adopt global laws which would be enforceable. As the days and months pass, I am more and more convinced that this has become an utmost urgency if we want to save this planet from destruction.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 11 - Of Gratitude
Three of the finest concepts ever developed by the human race are:
God as the supreme image of the universe
Happiness as the supreme objective of human life
Love as the supreme means to achieve happiness
Let us therefore become the Planet of God
Let us become the Planet of Happiness
Let us become the Planet of Love.
If I love life, then life will be beautiful.
If I love my family, I will have a happy family.
If I love my work, I will be successful.
If I love my house, I will have a beautiful home.
If I love to study, to write, to read, to paint, to sculpt, to garden, to sing, to walk,
my life will be happier through these loves.
If I love God, I will find an ultimate happiness.
