~ Idea 6197 ~ Advertisements are mushrooming to such an extent in the world that they might render the people sick of them and no longer wish to live on this planet. Mark this prediction of mine.
~ Idea 6198 ~ If people will say to you that I am crazy to come up with thousands of ideas for a better world and life, tell them to think of the many more thousands of advertisements they will have to see during their life to spend money and to buy things they often do not need.
~ Idea 6199 ~ All governments should provide yearly statistics to the UN of the advertisements produced in their country. The world total would be staggering. And to think that all the sums spent on them are included in the gross national products!!
| Robert's Golden Sayings |
|I would like to see a world with only beautiful names, like : Cura ao, the Heart; Sri Lanka, the beautiful island; Canada, the land of many villages; France, the land of the free; Pakistan, the land of the pure; Philippines, the country of the horse lovers; Tanganyka, the lake surrounded by trees, etc. |
My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 10
|I often remember this answer of General de Gaulle to a journalist who asked him what he thought of international organiza¬tions: |
"Regarding these organizations, it will be one of two things: either they will serve no purpose or they will serve a purpose. If they serve no purpose, except to provide good jobs for some people, then it will be for the good of these people, provided they will serve no purpose. I
f, on the other hand, these institutions serve a purpose, then it will be the end of France."
And after a moment of reflection, looking at the distant horizon as he used to do, he added:
"Everything has an end. Why should not France have an end too? Perhaps my mission was a last effort towards the summits. Perhaps I have written the last page of France's grandeur."
|Robert's Poem Decide to be Happy in Heron Dance: |
and in Cow Pi Journal:
Heron Dance had your poem Decide to be Happy - Judy
... from reading the lovely thoughts contained in your "Decide to be Happy" poem, shared in the e-mail "A Pause For Beauty" from www.herondance.org
!! Following the poem, there was a link to your website, which I clicked immediately!
Thanks for sharing!
I need all the encouragement I can get!!
Dear Robert and Barbara,
I learned about your work and wonderful newsletter through the writings of Annie O'Shaughnessy.
She has been a writer for a newsletter called "A Pause for Beauty," published by Heron Dance ( www.herondance.org). I just received my very first issue of "A Pause for Beauty" last week
and in her heart-felt article, Annie introduced some of your writings. These moved me so much,
I spent about an hour on the Internet finding out more about who you were. A reviewer of one
of your books gave me the clue that you had a newsletter of your own and I searched further
until I found that web site and signed up.
This is a link to the issue of "A Pause for Beauty" in which I first read about you and your work and writings:
I also read on Annie's online journal that she is taking a new road in her life and will opening her
own web site Soul Flares and starting her own newsletter called "Letters from An Open Heart."
( https://soulflares.org/). Apparently she only has a Home Page to her web site so far as she
is raising funds to launch this work of her heart more fully.
I know from just this briefest of introductions to the two of you, Robert, that you and Annie
are kindred spirits.
So, this is my story of how I came to sign up for your newsletter. I've ordered one of your
books and subscribed to your wonderful newsletter, and am sending Annie a thank-you
donation for introducing us and in support of her beautiful self.
Peace and Plenty for All,
Here is how Annie came up with the name for her new web site:
PS. The name Soul Flares was inspired by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, who wrote:
Thank you, Robert and Barbara, for sending out your lights!
- "One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these - to be fierce and to show mercy toward others, both, are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do."
I learned about Good Morning World through Heron Dance publication. - Douglas
I WAS A SUBSCRIBER BEFORE, BUT THERE WERE PROBLEMS WITH AOL, BUT NOW I AM GETTING THE DAILY READINGS AGAIN AND I AM SO GLAD!!!!!! I READ TWO OF ROBERT'S BOOKS AND ALSO SAW HIM ON THE WISDOM CHANNEL IN AN INTERVIEW SOME TIME AGO AND KNEW I WANTED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS DEAR AND WONDERFUL MAN AND THAT IS WHEN I READ HIS BOOKS.
I WOULD SO LOVE TO MEET HIM. IF HE EVER COMES TO INDIANA PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
I LOOK FORWARD EACH DAY TO THE E-MAIL FOR THE DAY.
PS. I ALSO WENT TO SOME WEBSITES AND THAT IS HOW I FOUND OUT I COULD RECEIVE A DAILY READING. I HAVE REALLY ENJOYED HIS WEBSITES!!!!!
