~ Idea 324 ~ 30 May 1995

In my Peace Park on Mt. Rasur, overlooking the University for Peace I have a bench of dreams where I ask visitors to sit, close their eyes and formulate a dream. Following a rite which was taught to me by a girl from Holland, Mara van der Lugt, one takes a pebble or stone in each hand, presses the two hands together, closes one's eyes and dreams intensely. When opening the eyes one throws one stone on the Earth, so that the sacred earth will remember the dream, and the other stone one takes home to be reminded of the dream. I wish that benches of dreams be built in many places on Earth.

Humanity and the Earth badly need our dreams. (See Ideas 729 and 749.)
Note: By 1997 about two dozen have been built around the world.

Robert's Golden Sayings
When I was a child, to describe my love and enthusiasm for life, I used the biggest adjective I could find: I called life ‘g ttlich, i.e. divine. I never found a better one.
Care well for the garden of your life, that precious, wonderful little garden on a planet floating in the vast universe, destined to become Paradise Earth, a model to all other planets.

My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 9

And God saw humans restore God and the human person as the Alpha and Omega, reducing institutions, beliefs, politics, governments and all human entities to mere servants of God and of the people. And God saw them adopt as their supreme law: 'You shall love the God of the universe with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength. You shall love your beautiful, miraculous planet and treat it with infinite care. You shall love your human brothers and sisters as yourself. There are no greater commandments than these.'

And God said: that is good. And it was the seventh day of the Planet of God.

An optimist isn't necessarily a blithe, sappy whistler in the dark. To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. If we remember those times and places where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us energy to act and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
