~ Idea 2631 ~

When one thinks of the magnitude of basic common services of local communities, of cities, of provinces and of nations all financed through taxation, one is flabbergasted that nothing similar whatsoever exists for the Earth, its fate, its peace, its preservation and beautification.

And this happens at the moment of history and evolution when the fate of the Earth and of the entire human race are in question.

We need a world energy grid, world water grids, a world atmospheric protection, a world natural and humanmade disasters relief organization, common world funds to face emergencies, etc.

But again, for this I will be called an unrealistic dreamer, a fool whose ideas will never come true. Well, the future will judge.

And let us remember that the first Nobel Prize for Economics was awarded to Jan Tinbergen, the Dutch economist who advocated the creation of World Public Services. Please young economists, study his work.

Robert's Golden Sayings
If you have a dream, even an impossible one, something will happen: signs, occasions, coincidences and help will come your way which will make your dream possible.
I have led an extraordinary life far beyond my wildest dreams. And as I went on, I continued to dream new dreams. To unceasingly dream may be one of the answers to the mysteries of life, an important way of living the fullest possible life and of contributing to further evolution.
Never plan 'against' something. Plan 'for' something.
Never despair. How else could you give your best? Your marvelous body, its myriads of cells and mechanisms need encouragement and optimistic guidance from the top, from the center. This is also true of the infinitely more complex human society.

Clausewitz, the 19th century German theoretician of war said: "War is an act of violence and there exist no limits whatever in Carrying it out."

Most of All They Taught Me Happiness By Robert Muller

#8 Quotation from the chapter entitled “How to Deal with Pessimists”, volume 5 “Lessons from the United Nations":

"When I arrived at my office I found an Indian lady waiting for me: Mrs Nigam, the president of the Federation of United Nations Associations of India. Her cheerful face was a blessing to me. Pursuing my train of thought, I asked her point-blank:

'Mrs. Nigam, are you a pessimist?'

'For heaven's sake, no! God forbid! Pessimists are second-rate people. They do not believe in life. (...) All they want is to drag you down and appease their own feelings of mediocrity and fear. (...) I have found a simple and effective way to cope with them:

I cut them right in the middle of their litanies and give them work to do. Either they leave or they work. Keep pessimists away from you or make them work, and they will not bother you.'

(...) This was a wise comment indeed. The worst thing a good person can do is to join the sad cohort of pessimists, and the next worst is to engage in a dialogue with them."

My related comments:

Choosing our company well is as important to our physical, emotional and mental health as feeding ourselves appropriately and living/working in a healthy environment. If we regularly eat food with a poor nutritional value, we will soon find ourselves in a bad state of health. The same is true of the "spiritual food" which we choose to ingest: the music we listen to, the books we read, the programmes we watch – all are susceptible to impacting in a positive or negative way our emotional and mental states. If we choose to surround ourselves with pessimistic persons, equally, the glass will very quickly look half empty and will make our creative potential much more difficult to tap into. Furthermore, we will often feel a sense of being "drained" as the pessimist saps our vibrant energy to fill the empty "hole" caused by their gloom. This brings to mind the responsibility each one of us has to be aware of our moods and the effects our moods can have on others.

Interestingly, when we feel optimistic and have positive thoughts, it is reflected in our physical body – we automatically assume a more upright posture with our heads held high. When we experience a sense of pessimism, our bodies quickly sag into a droopy posture and our eyes will tend to look downwards towards the ground.

Could it be that the reverse is also true, namely that by adjusting our physical posture we can affect a change in our mood and outlook?
