The stars is a million years away, they’re light travel for a million light years through space. Having each it’s determinate time & determinate place.

Those falling star shown up at a determinate moment, maybe to show us a place in the universe where we’ll go..

Falling Stars

Home sweet home

We’re dream about our home, the universe, if I back there I hope this particle of stars can save memories about you, about us.. :)

Stars to believe

“Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.”

Vincent Van Gogh

Simple Logic

The mind perceives the mind. You perceives yourself in the act of perception. You are the subject & the object at the same time.

Why would an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving God care whether I believed in Him? Shouldn’t He know this ahead of time in any case?

Even assuming He granted us free will, since He’s omniscient & outside time & space, shouldn’t He know everything that happens?

Why would “belief” matter at all?

Wouldn’t He, omniscient, omnipotent God be more concern with how I comported myself in this world?

Rather than obsessing OVER whether we believe in Him or His Son in hopes of getting the right place in other world.. Da?

“I did the best I could with the tools You granted me. You gave me brain to think skeptically & I used it accordingly. You gave me the capacity to reason & I applied it to all claims, include Your existence.”

Michael Shermer

Religions

Religions planted the seed in your mind you were superior to other souls & you believed them.

Religions made you believe all souls are not created equal; to rank, judge and critique the worth and value of other souls.

And to believe you are superior to other parts of God. Created pride as well as self-doubt about your own worth & value.

Religions made you think you are better than others, you need to prove your worth.

Adopted from “the ego” website

Love is …

Love is a state of mind – they are states that activate biological systemic reactions.

Whom we fall in love with is mostly a function of how our internal natures have been programmed by life. Our natural programming.

a dream, a reality

I had a dream again last night, the similar dreams almost every night. Sometimes it made me woke up at 3 or 4. This is just not right, my brain seems has been hijack, I lose my control, by my unconsciousness, by fear..

These dreams may become a reality someday, it’s just a matter of time. I keep telling to myself, I am ready. I really hope that I am. When those moment finally come just stay strong.

Life is a delusion

Life is a delusion; the best part of it, we can create our own best delusions.

There’s no such thing as eternal excitement and higher values.

10 years ago, I dreamed about you. I still remember, I wrote those dream at a note because I’m afraid that you gonna fade out from my mind. And now that I’ve found you, I’m so glad that you are real.. :)

Mengapa ‘Tuhan’ Tidak Mau Bertemu Aku?

Hari ini aku makan sampah lagi, tumpukan sampah di belakang rumah makan itu. Rumah makan itu selalu ramai, mereka yang datang selalu berpakaian rapi dengan kendaraan mereka. Rumah makan itu dihiasi lampu-lampu indah, lampu itu terkadang seperti bintang, redup dan menyala dipadangan mata ini sampai mata ini tertutup lelahnya.

Makanan ini enak, walau kadang aku harus mengais dan membersihkan sedikit kotorannya, tapi ini tidak mengapa daripada perutku berteriak sepanjang malam. Terkadang sedikit bercampur cacing dan kecoak, tapi sungguh ini hanya perlu dibersihkan sedikit saja, dan rasanya tetap sangat enak.

Aku suka berkunjung ke sebuah tempat, mereka bilang ada Tuhan di sana. Aku ingin bertemu Tuhan dan bertanya kepadanya, dimana ibuku? Terakhir aku bertemu dia tidak menjawab panggilanku, padahal aku memanggilnya berkali-kali dengan sangat keras. Aku menangis, diapun tetap tak menjawab. Mereka bilang ibuku ada bersama Tuhan, karena itu aku mencari Tuhan. Mereka bilang Tuhan baik, Tuhan sahabat semua orang dan Tuhan akan menolong aku.

Aku tidak tahu, ketika aku ingin bertanya dimana Tuhan, mereka dari dalam mobil menunjukan tangannya dengan kelima jari mereka, seperti mengucapkan halo dan kemudian beranjak pergi. Berkali-kali seperti itu. Mereka yang berjalan kakipun melangkah semakin cepat bila aku mendatangi, terkadang mereka memberikan aku uang lalu dengan segera mereka pergi. Banyak anak seperti aku, aku tidak tahu mereka pun lari menjauhi aku, menutup hidung mereka dan pergi. Bapak tua di depan gerbang gedung itupun demikian, dia menyuruhku pergi. Mengapa Tuhan sulit sekali ditemui? Apa salahku tidak dapat bertemu Tuhan?

Jalan Menuju Holyhope (Part II)

Jangan Mempertanyakannya

Tanahku, pijakanku.. Tempat kekekalanku..
Langitku, harapanku.. Kunantikan dengan pelu..
Kedamaian di bawah pelangi..
Kapankah kau membawaku pergi..
Holyhope, holyhope.. Kapankah kau membawaku pergi..

Aku berdiri sendirian berada dalam gugusan langit yang gelap, terasa begitu luas, tak berujung, banyak bintang-bintang bertebaran sungguh indah berkilauan. Dalam kegelapan menyelimutin membuat diriku merasa dalam tempat yang sempit, aku tidak tau harus mengarah kemana, tidak ada jalur untuk berjalan yang tepat untukku berjalan. Untuk mengapai langit rasanya sangat jauh, biarpun aku jauh berjalan tetap tak tergapai. Tetapi entah mengapa dorongan untuk mengapai langit dan bintang itu sangat kuat. Sesuatu yang gelap, begitu luas, besar, tidak dapat diukur. Sekarang aku hanya terus berjalan, melihat langit dan bintangnya, mungkin suatu saat akhirnya aku dapat sampai juga ke salah satu bintang.

Jalan Menuju Holyhope (Part I)

Jangan Lupakan Holyhope

Hai namaku Only, aku bukan seorang periang, bukan pula seorang yang pendiam. Akupun tidak terlalu pintar tetapi juga tidak bodoh. Sepertinya aku sendiri sulit memperkenalkan diriku. Aku hidup di perbatasan Myrix, daerah yang tidak terlalu menyenangkan untuk ditinggali, karena daerah ini dipenuhi dengan bentangan lautan. Cukup indah untuk dipandang, cukup nyaman untuk ditinggali, namun kami harus hidup dalam Kapal Layar.

Setiap orang yang tinggal di hamparan Myrix mempunyai banyak pilihan untuk menaiki Kapal Layar yang mana yang mereka sukai. Kapal Layar tersebut bertebaran, Anda bisa cukup jauh berjalan dan menemukan kapal lainnya. Dan aku yakin ada begitu banyak kapal yang tidak pernah kulihat sebelumnya.

Alkisah Babi & Lumpur

Babi kecil tinggal dalam kandang bermandikan lumpur, hidup dikelilingi pagar menjagai kawanan babi dan si babi kecil.

Dengan langit-langit usang hanya memberikan secercah lubang untuk dilewati sinar. Ketika hari mulai gelap sinar tersebut tertelan kegelapan meniupkan dingin yang menusuk sampai nadi-nadi.

Kami hidup di sini, makan di sini, bermain di sini. Hidup bermandikan lumpur, disinilah seharusnya kami berada. Di sini kami terlindungi, di sini kami aman.

Babi kecil senang berenang dan menenggelamkan diri pada lumpur, seperti selayaknya babi-babi lainnya. Hari berlalu seperti yang seharusnya.

Tapi sinar itu, yah sinar itu.. Darimanakah sinar itu, begitu menghangatkan hati. “Apakah memang hidup harus seperti ini?” Babi kecil bertanya, dan selalu bertanya.

Sometimes in a Relationship

Sometimes in a relationship you have to share until your last money, and smiling together when you both have none :)

Sometimes in a relationship we have to understand that people make mistakes, shares the heavy & walk the failure together.

Sometimes in a relationship, the world not gonna make it easy, we know we both tired, all night long hug could bring the courage back.

Aku Mencari Tuhan

Aku mencari Tuhan di gedung megah bersalibkan INRI, namun yg kutemukan parodi politik kudus tak ubahnya sirkus.

Dia tidak ada di sana, gedung megah kelam berbalut kemewahan berbau keserahkahan & kemunafikan, diselimuti awan gelap.

Aku mencari Tuhan di tengah hingar bingar gemerlap pujian, namun yg kutemukan tak berbeda konser band artis dg topeng kesucian.

Dia tidak di sana, hingar bingar bersandarkan pemuasan batin pribadi, khayalan yg menjadi sahabat kegemerlapan.

The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability. Our business in every generation is to reclaim a little more land. – T. H. Huxley, 1887 (P.9)

Explorations required skepticism and imagination both. Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it, we go nowhere. Skepticism enables us to distinguish fancy from fact, to test our speculations. (P.9)

The nature of life on Earth and the search for life elsewhere are two sides of the same question – the search for who we are. (P.17)

We humans look rather different than a tree. Without a doubt we perceive the world differently than a tree does. But down deep, at the molecular heart of life, the trees and we are essentially identical. (P.26)

Mostly, the sky does not change. The same star pictures are there year after year. The Moon grows from nothing to a thin sliver to a round ball, and then back again to nothing. (P.100)

The stars are very far away. When we climb a hill or a tree they are no closer. (P.100)

I wish I knew which was true. I don’t like not knowing. (P.101)

The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff. (P.133)

Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another. (P.193)

Cosmos – Carl Sagan

Teriakan Hening

Jiwa yang kuat, sampai berapa lama lagi engkau akan bertahan?

Wajahmu terpantul keletihan, tatapanmu bergumpal sendu.

Jiwa yang merdeka, sampai berapa jauh lagi engkau akan berlari?

Langkahmu bergetir ketakutan, jejak kakimu meninggalkan ketidakpastian.

You Were Brave in that Holy War

You have done well
In the contest of madness.

You were brave in that holy war.

You have all the honorable wounds
Of one who has tried to find love
Where the Beautiful Bird
Does not drink.
