[GMW #2738] Ways Of Improving The World - A Main Purpose Of All Literature

[GMW #2738] Ways Of Improving The World - A Main Purpose Of All Literature Idea Dream -Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 3500
~ Idea 3131 ~
A student from a group of visitors from the University of Vermont told me after hearing me speak that he saw recently a book entitled A Hundred Ways to Change the World.  I commented: that is only a beginning.  I have written and published 3000 ways of saving and improving the world and I do not cease writing more of them.  It should be a new, very important literature.  It should be a main purpose of all literature.

A Poet's Take on The Mystery of Existence
"When I start to write, I'm not a guide or teacher; I'm not even a poet. I'm a person far out at sea, and the poem is a raft made of whatever floats past in the water. Those almost accidental rescuing pieces are words, rhythms, musics, ideas, the memory that is mine and the memory that is all of ours and the memory that is held in language itself. The experience of writing, for me at least, isn't confidence or wisdom; it's closer to desperation. There is that in us that recognizes: 'this is water; this is land.' A poem is land found, as if for the first time. If I already knew what it would hold, I wouldn't need the poem, and if what it holds were knowable by any other words or way, I wouldn't need the poem." Poetess Jane Hirshfield reflects on how writing with a spirit of openness and courage can offer a door into the mysteries of our inner and collective experiences. { read more }

Be The Change

Take a closer look at the art around you -- perhaps a poem, painting, dance, or even nature -- and recognize them as gateways to interconnection, tenderness, and imagination.
