Let Your Life Speak

This was a step into darkness that I had been trying to avoid — the darkness of seeing myself more honestly than I really wanted to. To acknowledge and embrace my own liabilities and limits. Perhaps there is a lesson here about the complexity, even duplicity, we must embrace on the road to vocation, where we sometimes find ourselves needing to do the right thing for the wrong reason. The social systems in which these people must survive often try to force them to live in a way untrue to who they are. But in spite of that threat, or because of it, the people who plant the seeds of movements make a critical decision: they decide to live “divided no more.” They decide no longer to act on the outside in a way that contradicts some truth about them-selves that they hold deeply on the inside. They decide to claim authentic selfhood and act it out — and their decisions ripple out to transform the society in which they live, serving the self-hood of millions of others.

Randomness

Chaotic, everything is chaos. No matter how hard you’ve tried to find, the answers is in you, back at you, decide by you. Then what’s all about? Always end with the same question. And always have to surrender with the meaningless.

I wonder for so many things, I wish something can happen outside from the cause-effect. I wish for the particles of atom move randomly and create something new, a miracle.

Why are all of these strikes happen? Do you still have the same questions? Are you still at the same path? My eyes are screaming for the sight of the truth..

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 you need to understand that what you expect is not what has to happen..

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

Sometimes in a relationship when the dark comes you can see your lover better than what you can see in the spot of sunshine..

Sometimes in a relationship, feeling usually fades in time and it doesn’t mean you are no longer in love..

Sometimes in a relationship, you can hurt each other emotionally over time, and relationship turns into relationshit.

Sometimes in a relationship, just a warm hug and simple smile can be a cure for all misery.

Sometimes in a relationship you start to forget who you are & what makes you happy, you get drunk by togetherness.

Sometimes in a relationship, this world not gonna make it easy, we know we both tired, and all night long hugs is enough..

Sometimes in a relationship, you both start as a stranger, shares your life, dreams & passions, then end it the same way; stranger.

Sometimes in a relationship words can fail you, but a kiss won’t ;)

Sometimes in a relationship people are better friends then they was mates.

Sometimes in a relationship the distance makes you realize the true value of each other.

Sometimes in a relationship, you hate each other, but most days you love each other.

Man’s Life Journey

Man’s life is a journey to find the happiness he once felt inside the womb of his mother. – Indian proverbs

Experience the Mysterious

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Albert Einstein

The Universe & My Falling Star

This universe never fail to amaze me. How big, how far and how fast, infinite, all facts & mysteries totally amazingly amazing.

One of the best moments in my life that I will never forget, when I saw a falling star.

I’m not sure it is really a falling star, or a meteor or else. I’ve never seen anything like that before, and yes, not everyone has the chance to see it in a lifetime but I did, and I feel very fortunate.

I wanna see the universes..

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. – Carl Sagan

Before You Claim Any Absolute Truth

Before you judge others or claim any absolute truth, consider that…

… you can see less that 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 kilometers per second across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you”. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colours you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Dear Parents

Found @_DearParents_ account on twitter, epic tweets, what a socialist extremist! LOL. I wonder what kind of kid will rise with this kind of education. Rising a child is not that easy. So, I copied some of his tweets, maybe I’ll needed it someday..

DearParents: Shaping your child’s mind is not brainwashing them, it’s guiding them away from capitalist traps and mental poisons.

DearParents: Teach your child how to empower themselves by empowering their community.

DearParents: Motivate your child to ask questions, to question authority, to be critical of society.

DearParents: It’s never too early to teach your child the importance of social justice.

DearParents: Encourage your child to ask questions and you will help them become more inquisitive about their society.

DearParents: Blind obedience is the goal of the corporate educational system; teach your child to challenge the system in clever ways.

DearParents: Build in your child socialist sensibilities; desires for a world in which sharing and caring obliterating hoarding and wanting.

DearParents: Do not spoil your child; spoiling your child does not make you a good parent, it makes you a consumptive person.

DearParents: Deconsumerise your child by teaching them to examine consumerism critically.

DearParents: Teach your child the importance of putting the community ahead of selfish desires.

What is So Wrong For Being A Nihilist?

Everytime I wake up in the morning, yesterday always feels like a dream, one more dream passed me by. Am I really alive yesterday? You will hard to ensure which one is reality, which one is only your delusions. I think this is the part of game of life, to make sure you’re really alive everyday.

At some point in time, each of us, asking about what life is? Then what life is? What is the meaning of life? What is life about? We all looking for answer, for define our existence, you’ll find many different answers.

Some said, life is a gift from God, to bring his glory and bla bla things, or some said He has purpose for each of us, we have to find out by ourselves. To Platonism, life is in attaining the highest form of knowledge, which is the idea (form) of the good, from which all good and just things derive utility and value. Stocism said life is freedom from suffering through apatheia. Søren Kierkegaard said one can live meaningfully (free of despair and anxiety) in an unconditional commitment to something finite, and devotes that meaningful life to the commitment, despite the vulnerability inherent to doing so. You’ll find many many different point of view about life, about meaning, and how we lived our’s life, so we feel alive.

But, what if you know that everything in this universe happen because it’s meant to happen. “Anything that happens happens, anything that in happening causes something else to happen causes something else to happen and anything that in happening causes itself to happen again, happens again” (Douglas Adams). Everything that happens there are conditions such that, given those conditions, nothing else could happen, determinism. Some kind of fate, we’re simply has no choice and our free will perfectly just an illusion. Our life is just cause-effect reaction from million years process of the formed of universes, from million years process of evolution. There’s no such thing as probabilities, it simply human ability to predict things for his inability to control. Continue reading

Douglas Adams’ speech at Digital Biota 2

Is there an Artificial God?

In honour of Douglas’ memory, Biota.org presents the transcript of his speech at Digital Biota 2, held at Magdelene College Cambridge, in September 1998. I would like to thank Steve Grand for providing this to us. Douglas presented this ”off the cuff” which only magnifies his true genius in our eyes. — Bruce Damer

This was originally billed as a debate only because I was a bit anxious coming here. I didn’t think I was going to have time to prepare anything and also, in a room full of such luminaries, I thought ‘what could I, as an amateur, possibly have to say’? So I thought I would settle for a debate. But after having been here for a couple of days, I realised you’re just a bunch of guys! It’s been rife with ideas and I’ve had so many myself through talking with and listening to people that I’d thought what I’d do was stand up and have an argument and debate with myself. I’ll talk for a while and hope sufficiently to provoke and inflame opinion that there’ll be an outburst of chair- throwing at the end.

Before I embark on what I want to try and tackle, may I warn you that things may get a little bit lost from time to time, because there’s a lot of stuff that’s just come in from what we’ve been hearing today, so if I occasionally sort of go… I was telling somebody earlier today that I have a four-year-old daughter and was very, very interested watching her face when she was in her first 2 or 3 weeks of life and suddenly realising what nobody would have realised in previous ages – she was rebooting!

I just want to mention one thing, which is completely meaningless, but I am terribly proud of – I was born in Cambridge in 1952 and my initials are D N A!

The topic I want to introduce to you this evening, the subject of the debate that we are about to sort of not have, is a slightly facetious one (you’ll be surprised to hear, but we’ll see where we go with it) – ”Is there an Artificial God?” I’m sure most of the people in this room will share the same view, but even as an out-and-out atheist one can’t help noticing that the role of a god has had an enormously profound impact on human history over many, many centuries. It’s very interesting to figure out where this came from and what, in the modern scientific world we sometimes hope against hope that we live in, it actually means.

He’s Just Not That Into You

If a (sane) guy really likes you, there ain’t nothing that’s going to get in his way.

When a guy is into you, he let’s you know it. Men are not complicated, although they’d like you to think they are.

And sadly, men would rather lose an arm out a city bus window than tell you simply, “You’re not the one.”

Stop making excuses for men, his actions are screaming the truth: He’s just not that into you.

Men find it very satisfying to get what they want. If they want you, they will find you.

If a guy truly likes you, he won’t keep you guessing, ’cause he’ll want to make sure you don’t go away.

“I don’t want to be your boyfriend” in the dictionary, it still means “I don’t want to be your boyfriend.”

A man who’s really into you is going to want you all to himself.

“I don’t want to be in a serious relationship” truly means “I don’t want to be in a serious relationship with you”

“I don’t want to be in a serious relationship” also means “I’m not sure that you’re the one.”

100% of guys polled said “a fear of intimacy” has never stopped them from getting into a relationship.

Fear of intimacy is an urban myth, that’s just what we say to girls when we’re just not that into them.

People tell you who they are all the time. When a man says he can’t be monogamous, you should believe him.

If he only wants to see you, talk to you, have sex with you, etc., when he’s inebriated, it ain’t love—it’s sport.

Bad boys are actually bad.

Most of men said that when they broke up, it always meant that they didn’t want to go out with them anymore.

If you’re not able to love freely, it’s not really love.

Life is hard enough as it is without choosing someone difficult to share it with.

Why have to spend your precious time with a man who has already rejected you?

– Greg Behrendt –

happiness

Happiness is like a fatamorgana, something that never really there, something distorted, something that never could be approached.

Some people give up their dreams, their passions, and trade their lives in exchange for money so that they can make a living.

You chase for something more, that will never arrived. This the game goes; wanting for more never ends & happiness will always away.

I am not …

I’m not an atheist, nor an agnostic, not even a deist. This Universe is too surprising, here & everywhere, to stick on one label.
