Use every letter you write,
Every conversation you have,
Every meeting you attend,
To express your fundamental beliefs and dreams.
Affirm to others the vision of the world you want.
Network through thought,
Network through action,
Network through love,
Network through the spirit.
You are the centre of a network,
You are the centre of the world,
You are a free, immensely powerful source of life and goodness.
Think day and night about it,
And you will see a miracle happen:
The greatness of your own life.
In a world of big powers, media, and monopolies,
There are four and a half billion individuals,
Networking is the new freedom,
The new democracy,
A new form of happiness.
By Dr Robert Muller Assistant Secretary-General for Economic & Social Services for the United Nations
