~ Idea 1257 ~The main purpose of education should not be to give children skills to "compete" and to "succeed" in life, but to lead a happy, fulfilled life. But where on Earth is that taught? It is at least in the handful of 33 Robert Muller schools.
19 December 1997
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 11 - Of Gratitude
Humanity fully depends on the sun and on this Earth for life, hence the need to respect and thank our star and our planet, to cherish them, and see them as sacred. And yet, we seem to have lost contact with them. We sleep and no longer pray and give thanks when the sun rises. We live in cities of stone and cement. We watch television and hear radio instead of contemplating nature and listening to her beautiful sounds. We should make daily offerings to the sun and to the Earth and say with the psalmists: "This is a good day to live, to glorify and to give thanks to God."

WORD FOR THE DAY
If there is anything I have learned about men and women,
it is that there is a deeper spirit of altruism than is ever evident.
Just as the rivers we see are minor compared to the underground streams,
so, too, the idealism that is visible is minor compared to
what people carry in their hearts unreleased or scarcely released.
-- Dr. Albert Schweitzer
