Summary: Learn the background behind global education advocate and former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations Robert Muller.

Robert Muller (born 1923) may be most well known for his role as Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations, or perhaps for his founding and developing of the United Nations University of Peace in Costa Rica. However, it was his spirituality that led him to take on these jobs, strive for world peace, and even create a global education curriculum. Read Muller’s biography

Muller's Ideals

Here’s what Muller’s website has to say about his spirituality:

He has been called the "Philosopher" and "Prophet of Hope" of the United Nations. Robert Muller is a deeply spiritual person. From his vantage point of a top level global states-person he has seen a strong connection between spirituality and the political/cultural scene.i

Here’s some advice from Muller in 1986:

Decide to open yourself to God, to the Universe, to all your brethren and sisters, to your inner the potential of the human race, to the infinity of your inner self, and you will become the will become infinity, and you will be at long last your real, divine, stupendous self.ii

Is this what we want the children of the world believing about themselves—that they will become the universe, become divine?

And here’s an excerpt from Muller’s 1989 UNESCO Prize for Peace Education acceptance speech:

I pray that all human beings of this Earth become instruments of peace, thus fulfilling the cosmic function deeply engraved in each of us and for which we were born and allowed to live temporarily on this beautiful planet in the vast universe and eternal stream of time. The peace of the world is the sum-total of the peace of all individuals.iii

What type of peace does Muller propose? What “philosophies” and “prophecies of hope” does this internationally-influential political and spiritual leader bring to the world?

According to the preface of Robert Muller’s World Core Curriculum, “The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey.” Analyze Alice Bailey’s statements on the United Nations and one-world governments, education, and religion

Listen to Robert Muller and his wife, Barbara Gaughen Muller, explain how they are working to bring a one-world religion into the United Nations:


Muller’s Mentor

One of Muller’s key influences was U Thant (1909-1974), whom Muller called “my spiritual master.”iv

U Thant was a Burmese diplomat, and Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1961 to 1971.v A Buddhist, Marxist,vi and supporter of global government, he said this in 1969:

I do not wish to seem overdramatic, but I can only conclude from the information that is available to me as Secretary-General that the members of the United Nations have perhaps ten years left in which to subordinate their ancient quarrels and launch a global partnership to curb the arms race, to improve the human environment, to diffuse the population explosion, and supply the required momentum to world development efforts.vii

He also told Muller, "The world will not change and find peace if there is not a new education."viii This new education is becoming a reality through Robert Muller’s World Core Curriculum.

Muller's New Age World Core Curriculum

Robert Muller is known as a “father of global education,”ix and received the UNESCO Peace Education Prize in 1989 for his World Core Curriculum, a global education program.x

As a former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations, Muller’s clout in the international community is impressive. It should not be surprising, then, that Muller’s World Core Curriculum is discussed in UN circles as an innocent and useful education tool.

At the UN’s 56th Annual DPI/NGO Conference in September 2003, a workshop explained how Muller “developed a core curriculum to teach the whole child.”xi It discusses how Muller’s curriculum “included hygiene, gardening, vocational training, marketing, entrepreneurship, as well as values and respect.”xii

What the speaker neglected to mention was the seriousness of the occult and New Age philosophies and practices being spread through Robert Muller’s program.

The first Robert Muller School opened in 1979, with dozens more following.xiii Thousands of people now use his program, and Muller believes every school in the world should teach his curriculum. What are the key points of Muller’s message that he wants every person on Earth to learn?

1. Spirituality

As we have already seen, Robert Muller believes in the divinity of humanity and "was deeply influenced"xiv by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest who taught that all of humanity would eventually meld into one super-being through the coming of the Cosmic Christ.

Muller’s World Curriculum framework includes teaching on “Spiritual exercises of interiority, meditation prayer, communication with the universe, eternity and God.”xv These spiritual exercises, meditation, and mystic communication are marks of New Age spirituality.

According to United Nations OnLine, “The scope of the curriculum will always be the same; to allow the student to see himself truly, as an integral part of the Cosmos…At the moment, it seems the only limitation will be the imagination of the Cosmic-minded and spiritually oriented teaching staff.”xvi

And we cannot forget what the World Core Curriculum itself tells us about Muller's source of inspiration:

The underlying philosophy upon which The Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey by the Tibetan Teacher of Djwhal Khul...and the teaching of Morya as given in the Agni Yoga series books.xvii

Alice Bailey (1880-1949) was a New Age leader and a channel for Djwhal Khul, a demon disguised as a master of wisdom. Bailey's Luciferian channeled messages from Djwhal Khul are published through her organization, the Lucis Trust Association. Lucis Trust is a United Nations-affiliated NGO. Lucis Trust gained consultative status with the UN in 1989.xviii

2. Unity under the United Nations

Along with a New Age spirituality, Muller's Core Curriculum teaches a socialist political unity established under the United Nations. Muller says this:

History will prove that Gloria Crook, U Thant and the United Nations were right. The quicker all educators and media will listen to them, the quicker we will get out of the present confusion and find a new, promising way of our progress and evolution. Please, all teachers of the world, listen to them.xix

According to New Man magazine, Muller's World Core Curriculum is meant to “steer our children toward global citizenship, earth-centered beliefs, socialist values and the collective mindset which is becoming a requirement for the 21st century workforce.”xx

Gloria Crook, the founder of the first Robert Muller School in Arlington, Texas, speaks of the importance of the UN in this process of global citizenship:

The Curriculum was born out of Robert Muller's 40 year experience with the United Nations, and it will be discovered that an understanding of the United Nations, its structure and purposes, will be a most rewarding factor.xxi

Is steering our children towards socialism really what's best for them?

Muller isn't the only proponent of global education in the United Nations. Read more education strategies global influencers are putting into place to reverse "the errors of home training."xxii
