Perjuangan Bangsa

Negeri itu punya 3 kelompok utama bangsa. Seringkali terlupa begitu banyak lagi bangsa kecil lain yang terabai dan terpencil. Maka negeri itu sering berdepan polemik. Polemik antara bangsa.

Ada satu bangsa majoriti. Paling ramai sekali. Namun, hakikatnya ia masih berpecah-belah oleh macam-macam suku dan sakat.Maka dimudahkan fahaman, diberi pengertian rasmi, bangsa itu biar apapun sukunya, asal praktik bahasa, budaya dan agama serupa.Maka termasuk dalam bangsa majoriti. Hingga ada yang lupa terus suku sakat asalnya. Mengaku diri bangsa majoriti. Malah, bangsa-bangsa kecil yang terpencil itu juga cuba jadi bangsa majoriti. Ya, asal bahasa, budaya, agama sama. Tidak sukar.

Tetapi dalam kitab agama bangsa majoriti terpapar kata, “Wahai umat manusia! Sesungguhnya Kami menciptakan kamu dari lelaki dan perempuan, dan Kami menjadikan kamu berbagai bangsa dan bersuku puak, supaya kamu berkenal-kenalan (dan beramah mesra antara satu dengan yang lain). Sesungguhnya semulia-mulia kamu di sisi Allah ialah orang yang lebih taqwanya di antara kamu, (bukan yang lebih keturunan atau bangsanya). Sesungguhnya Allah Maha Mengetahuai, lagi Maha Mendalam PengetahuanNya (akan keadaan dan amalan kamu)”.

Mahu tidak mahu bangsa majoriti perlu akui, kitab yang diimani mereka sendiri memahat hakikat, dicipta manusia dari pelbagai bangsa dan tidak mungkin dihilangkan atau dihapuskan bangsa selainnya kerana diminta Tuhan supaya antara bangsa-bangsa itu untuk saling mengenal, memahami dan mengerti.

Bukan saling membuang jati diri bangsa dan menjadi bangsa majoriti.

Jadi jangan taksub jadi majoriti, jangan kecil jadi minoriti. Mengikut hukum hakiki, keadilan itu milik setiap insani. Jika tidak ditemukan di jagat fana ini, pasti terbalas di alam abadi. Itu pasti.

Namun, percaya pada karma dan balasan baik-buruk, tidak jadikan jiwa itu lemah.Mengalah dan menyerah. Perjuangan adalah hak untuk hidup mulia sebagai insan mahupun bangsa.Ya, berjuang saja semahunya, cuma jangan terlupa dunia ini dikongsi sama rata, dalam berjuang sesukanya, ada hak dan kepentingan insan dan bangsa lain perlu diperkira.Baik majoriti mahu minoriti. Baik yang diwar-warkan mahu terpencil diam. Semuanya mesti dibela.

Jadi berjuanglah dengan adab sebagai bangsa manusia yang dikarunia akal untuk mencari hikmah.Kebenaran jika tidak dibicara dengan hikmah boleh jadi kebatilan, kebatilan jika disusun dengan hikmah boleh sampai kebenaran pada yang menerima.

Itulah rahsia hidup bersama di dunia penuh rencam. Memang benar, kadang-kala perselisihan, pergaduhan, pembunuhan serta peperangan tidak dapat dielakkan. Namun, jika terlaksana permusuhan dengan hikmah ketuhanan, bukan sekadar nafsu yang merajai, ia boleh jadi keberkatan dalam kehidupan.

Banyak lagi rahsia dalam hidup ini. Perlu hati-hati disingkap dengan akal nubari.

Jadi, jangan gelojoh bicara, berbuat mahupun berjuang semahunya. Teliti situasi dan konsekuensi.

Jika boleh berjuang dalam damai kenapa mahu berperang berbunuh-bunuhan?

Keep Calm and Feel Better

It’s actually hurt a lot when you love someone but the real is she/he doesn’t love you back like you are. They actually don’t want to be with you and ignoring you. That’s why love one side is killing and people tend to act out of normal.

I am a person that is really sensitive, easily upset, easily crying, easily angry, easily hurting. I can easily feel and the feeling also easily diminishing. People sometime amaze by how easily my mood changing. It’s just I feel too much but do not put time to think about it too much.

In order to forget all the ill feeling, I occupy myself on other thing. Like many people done because to feel down and overwhelmed only cause harm to me, my self.

I choose to stop thinking about the feel, the problem, the person. Till I stop talking and interact with it (worst cases). Since I will be hurt only to be around, so, just leave it and move on.

However, I spend time crying before it. Cry for couple minutes, to hours or days (depend on situation). But, then start a fresh with new determination. Forget, forgive and move on.

Life will never easy. And you will never stop hurting people and being hurt by. But, life will go on right? And it’s not easy to satisfy all. Just live the way you feel right and try to change for the better, one step for a time. Not only to make people love you but importantly to have God love you, and that have to be our main purpose in life.

That’s why, do not rely too much on people, because how nice and beautiful a relationship can be, people will hurt you on the journey. If that happen, you already prepare to learn how human you and they are. We hurt each other and we comfort one another.

I learnt it in life. How easily I can be hurt, and how easily I try to forget by do not think too much after crying out alone. Of course then, I move on. Try to forgive, make it distance (to avoid being hurt again) and appreciate to be alive and sound. People is just an obstacle that God give us to strength us. To make us realize, how weak we are and how much we need Him in our life.

And of course learn how exactly we have to behave as person and human. Since we may be in right or wrong side, we have to be open and humbly to accept others. And I am a person who always think I am wrong but the same time feel hard to change and comfortable to be in wrong. However, I learn that I have to adjust although little by little from time to time.

The Lazy Millionaire (Book Review)

This book has 160 pages (only). But it looks quite thick. (I learn later that the paper use is heavier than usual books, may be its about millionaire, so, the paper represent the wealth too) Therefore, in couple of travelling time in a week, I finished it. Amazingly because nowadays to have me finished the whole book is quite something.

I am not really interested to be millionaire. But, in life, who don’t need money. And, I am really depended to it. So, reading this book make me feel quite happy with how life can be for a lazy millionaire. Something that I feel quite similar what I want to be.

This book contains two parts; part one is about lazy millionaire and the second one is the art of always being on vacation. There are 16 chapters in first part and 10 chapters in the second. Every chapter do not really have much pages, low than 10 and several can have only 3 to 4 pages only. That’s make reading become easier and the way the author conveys, his story by trying to communicate with reader with arrangement of sentences and phrases make reading more fun.

For the first part, the author teaches reader how to be millionaire by first chapter, he elaborate the definition of lazy millionaire which person who acquire significant millions of fortune but do not really work hard to acquire it. He just lives like a simple person, living the life he love but he is just wealthy by his own effort (the lazy way). This part taught us that how to manage our life effectively so that we can live a healthy life. How to manage our asset, our priority, our time, our spending, our mind and so on, so, we can live like a lazy millionaire. What I love most is that the author himself is the lazy millionaire. He is a writer (which a career that I aim to be) and a person who own a company and collect property asset (homes and a lot of homes to make him millionaire by collect this asset). Since, he is writer (a successful one) it make me love him (or the book) even more.

Later, for part two, the author shows how we can live our life like we are having vacation all the time. Actually, this part is for people who are coping with hectic way of life through demanding work and lifestyle. It’s not really suitable for unemployed person like me who always living day like summer holiday. However, this chapter makes a reminder, something like that (busy lifestyle) can happen if I’m not prepared and recognize to what kind of life I’m going to lead. It’s not that life can always be relaxing and rest. But, life is more than working (even worst if the work is something we hate to do). I love to be involved in volunteering work, traveling, and spending time at home (a lot). May be I should be a housewife (after getting married). 
Nevertheless, I want to improve myself, my capability is beyond that (a housewife, but, I do not mean a housewife is not good, it’s the best but I am not the best for it). I am a person who always scored for perfect result during my school day, ambitious young lady who always dream to achieve the best in life, which I realize later what kind of dream and reality are. Therefore, I strive to achieve a better life, a healthy lifestyle, a perfect career and some space for me to live the way I want to live.

The second part of this book show how life can be if we try to change. However, life is not as easy as writing and reading books. Each of people leads a different kind of life. For me, this book is just compatible for me since I just love the idea of lazy millionaire and how much I want to be writer and being comfort in my lifestyle without anxious about living expenses and so on.

My recommendation, those who want to lead a free lifestyle, do not want to be tie up with 8 hours working hour, who do not mind about office clothes and etiquette, who just want to be creatively artistic and work to present what in the mind and heart, who love to be leisured and living effective life and at the same time do not worry about money. This book is just perfect for you (just perfect for me!).

Thanks to my best friend who presented the book for me since my habit is to slip through my lips the word ‘lazy’ all the time when we talk. Clearly, I admit how lazy myself and how much it affect my life. For that reason, this book taught me how the laziness also can lead me into flourishing lifestyle if I handle my life well.
