Mind and Heart

01-The-Balance-Christian-Schloevery-Surreal-Paintings-Balance-of-Mind-and-Heart-www-designstack-co

Man lives from his heart. Humans live in their hearts. The heart is a long journey. Humans follow them, to their satisfaction, their welfare, their happiness, and their God.

Various creatures prevented him, sometimes he hindered it. The heart is the center of the will that makes people laugh and cry, sad and happy, content or desperate.

A man wanders in his heart, the mind helps him, the mind must work as hard as it can, the mind needs to revolutionize, the mind cannot sleep, the mind must be driven faster than the speed of light.

The heart does not always understand exactly what he wants. He can only be oriented to his God to get the clarity and accuracy of his will.

The mind helps to get that clarity and determination, but the mind cannot explain anything about its God.

The mind serves his heart, the heart always asks the Lord. Before God, the mind is darkness and ignorance.

If the mind wants to reach its Lord, it conforms to the law of the dimensions of its heart. If not, the mind will offer damage, entrapment, and boomerang.

If the mind is only able to offer things to its heart, then the heart will be exposed to a vacuum, and the mind itself widens the distance from its Lord.

The body will melt to the ground. The mind will dissolve in time and space. The heart will melt in God.

If the degree of the heart is lowered to the ground, if the level of mind is preoccupied with chunks of metal, then in the certainty of melting into God, they will only be ready to become piles of wood, which are burned not by God’s love, but by fire.

If the heart is only guided by the body, then it will only be scared by the age limit, by death, by poverty, by ignorance.

If the mind is only taking care of the body, if the mind does not know the end, it will change greed nature, will bloom with pride, then be shocked and disappointed by everything that is produced.

I am crazy

I’m crazy for praise
I’m mad of possessions
I’m a wealth maniac
I’m always hungry for recognition

And I’m numb
If you don’t get respect
I slept a tenth of the time
I do any fasting
Since my childhood

I hugged three thousand people every night
I plant love across the country
My hands are muddy
I let my nose sniff
Dirt and garbage from the world

I poison the poison
Thousands of people stuck swords
To my chest, and I immerse myself
My life is unclean in the world

Because not a day is not even one night
I once left the occupants

But my heart is empty of life
What I’m looking for is praise, possessions
Wealth and respect
From you, O my beloved
Only from you

If anyone else praises me
Kissing my hand and hugging my body
Surely that is because they thought
This is me

My lovely God

Damatic sunset skyI once doubted the existence of Him.
I once thought that His existence was merely a product of my wild imagination.
Until one day, when I was searching inwardly, I found that our limitations in understanding something did not mean that something that was beyond our understanding did not exist.

Wasn’t it just in March 1876, Alexander Graham Bell patented his “electric telegraph”?
While previously the idea of being able to hear voices in such a distance was considered a supernatural phenomenon.
Didn’t The Turing machine was first proposed by Alan Turing in 1936 and became the foundation for theories about computing and computers?
Isn’t In the 1980s, research at CERN in Switzerland by British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee the result in the World Wide Web?

We can comprehend all the natural phenomena around us. There are trees, flowers, fruits. Who would have arranged it all? With such correctness, perfect.
We can feel the wind blowing, rain dropping from the clouds, millions of stars scattered in the sky. It all serves with full obedience.
We every day observe the sunrise from the east and set in the west. Every day, so consistent and resolute.

We can now understand natural sciences, mathematics, physics, chemistry, but that is only our interpretation of the phenomena that occur. Isn’t physics force, chemical reaction, and mathematical calculation the precision that was already there from the beginning?

Then who created it all?

There must be something that created it all in the beginning, at that time everything was not there.

At present we are convinced of the existence of the big bang theory, and before that, it was still in the form of energy. Then, who is the Creator of energy?
It would be naive to say that it happened by itself. Is there something created without a creator?

So surely that “something” is so powerful, so loving, so orderly, and so perfect. And undoubtedly because of how great He is, then He must be the Eternal and Absolute; surely He begeth not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him.

By being aware of all the natural phenomena, the history of the earth, human civilization, and the phenomenal existence of him, I believe that he must exist. And such entities are beings that I deserve to worship. Regardless of the entity’s terms, it is also not proper for him.

If anyone wants to believes that everything about the Creator is only our imagination, then let it be. After all, that did not reduce the greatness of Him a bit. And I am grateful that given guidance to try to apprehend Him, perceive His presence in all aspects of life, witness how His power encompasses everything.

Orang baik dan orang jahat (part 2)

Setelah fokus pembahasan pada part 1 lebih menitikberatkan pada ciri-ciri atau kriteria orang yang baik, di part 2 ini kita akan sedikit mengulas tentang ciri-ciri orang jahat. Sebenarnya bila seseorang mau meluangkan waktu untuk belajar dan membaca kitab suci (pemeluk agama manapun) mereka akan menemukan dengan mudah kriteria ciri-ciri kedua golongan manusia ini. Karena setahu saya, tidak ada satu agama pun yang mengajak pada kesesatan dan kejahatan.

Beberapa kutipan di bawah ini adalah contoh-contoh dari beberapa ajaran kitab suci yang ada di Indonesia yang pada intinya adalah mengajak kita untuk berperilaku baik dan meninggalkan kejahatan.

Islam: “Bagi orang-orang yang berbuat baik, ada pahala yang terbaik (surga) dan tambahannya. Dan muka mereka tidak ditutupi debu hitam dan tidak (pula) kehinaan. Mereka itulah penghuni surga, mereka kekal di dalamnya”. [Yûnus/10:26]

Kristen: “Sebaliknya, kalian harus saling berbaik hati dan beriba hati,a juga saling mengampuni dengan tulus” [Efesus 4:32]

Hindu: “Lakukanlah perbuatan yang baik bersama seluruh keluarga untuk menuju jalan kebaikan atau Dharma” [Yajur Veda, VII.45]

Buddha: “Hindari kejahatan, perbanyak kebaikan, sucikan pikiran” [Ovada Patimokkha]

Orang baik dan orang jahat (part 1)

295303_542567619128511_1360670348_n_zps0146899fKita sering mendengar kisah dari kawan-kawan yang menceritakan bahwa si A itu baik, si B itu jahat. Kita juga sering membaca, menonton dan menyaksikan tentang kisah-kisah kebaikan seseorang ataupun kejahatan seseorang.

Oleh karenanya, ada baiknya kita mencoba melihat beberapa kriteria dari setiap individu yang berbeda. Pertama adalah tentang ciri-ciri dari orang baik, dan dilanjutkan dengan postingan saya selanjutnya yang memberikan penjelasan tentang ciri-ciri orang jahat. Baca lebih lanjut
