Confused?


Why dont we ask God? Isn't He the God of all religions (and non-religions) we have created since the beginning of time? This is not only to a one particular religion in question.. not also limited to the similar "issue" at hand...


A belief is formed when someone accepts a statement from someone else e.g. he has confidence/trust/faith in that someone ... what if that someone also believed someone other..? and and in turn this someone believed another? and another..? and........

The truth, nothing but the truth? - dan sanadnya yang begitu...

Deja vu - What if?




"What if your whole life flashing before your eyes right before you die happens in real time?

And what if you are reliving it right now?

And what if you get deja vu because you have small moments of consciousness where you realize this all really HAS happened before?"

Hanya


jangan pernah menyanjung cinta
bila tak mengerti maknanya cinta
satu terindah dalam dirimu
kini ada di jiwaku


(HANYA - MELLY GOESLAW)
ku inginkan cerita cinta
terindah bagaikan dalam dongeng

Sesat bercabang, tenggelam di rimbunan


Sebatang pohon
Sekurang-kurangnya lima cabang dahan
Darinya tiga-puluh ranting menyelerak
Tumbuhlah ratusan, ribuan daun merimbun
Sekirannya mampu
Maka berputiklah bunga-bungaan
Menerbitkan impian hasil
Manis dan ranum

Di sinilah
Sesat di antara ranting-ranting berselerak
Tenggelam dalam rimbunan daun
Bermimpikan buah ranum di siang hari

Kembalilah
Susuri rimbunan daun
Dari selerakan ranting
Kembalilah
Ke dahan yang lima
Yang bertahan kepada enam keimanan
Yang menghidupkan tiga-puluh ranting

Agar dapat berpaut semula
kepada batangnya pokok
Lalu tunduk dengan keinsafan
Ke bawah
Menyembah lapisan bumi

Itu yang nyata
Pada pandangan mata


Begitu jua
Ibaratnya yang tidak ternyata
Pada pandangan mata
Apabila menembusi lapisan nyata

Apa lagi yang ada?
Akar tunjang? Akar Banir? Akar selirat yang melata?
Yang mengambil faedah
Dari air dan nutrisi bumi indah?

Kemana jua perjalanan ini
Melihat diri
Di dalam cermin
Yang ini
Melihat yang itu
Dan begitulah berbolak-balik
Seolah-olah tiada kesudahannya

Ibarat sepohon pokok

Turning round in circles




Pilgrims!
why are you turning round in circles,
what are you looking for?

The Beloved is here, why search in the desert?

If you look deep in your heart,
you will find Him within yourself.

You have made the pilgrimage
and trod the path to Mecca many times.
You rave about the holy place
and say you've visited God's garden
but where is your bunch of flowers?

You tell stories about diving deep into the ocean
but where is your pearl?

There is some merit in the suffering you have endured
but what a pity you have not discovered
the Mecca that's inside.


(Translation by Azima Melita Kolin & Maryam Mafi, "Rumi: Hidden Music", HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 2001)

In uttering it.. just a tiny imagination

Click the links..








..and in one second, light travels nearly 0.3 million kilometres.. that is about 9.5 trillon km in one year (One Light-year)

Across the Milky Way then is about 950,000 trillion kilometres....

The Engineer is back!





An engineer who was unemployed for a long time decided to open a medical clinic. He puts a sign outside the clinic: “A cure for your ailment guaranteed at $500; we’ll pay you $1,000 if we fail.”

A Doctor thinks this is a good opportunity to earn $1,000 and goes to his clinic.

Doctor: “I have lost my sense of taste.”

Engineer: “Nurse, please bring the medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor: “This is Gasoline!”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

The Doctor gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days later to recover his money.

Doctor: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Engineer: “Nurse, please bring the medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Doctor: “But that is Gasoline!”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

The Doctor leaves angrily and comes back after several days, more determined than ever to make his money back.

Doctor: “My eyesight has become weak.”

Engineer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for this. Take this $1,000,” passing the doctor a $500 note.

Doctor: “But this is $500…”

Engineer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your vision back! That will be $500.”

..because I am constantly talking with you...


( سورة ق  , Qaf, Surah 50, Ayat 16)

Dan demi sesungguhnya, Kami telah mencipta manusia dan Kami sedia mengetahui apa yang dibisikkan oleh hatinya, sedang (pengetahuan) Kami lebih dekat kepadanya daripada urat lehernya.


( سورة ق  , Qaf, Chapter #50, Verse #16)

It was We Who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.

As you wish...


You say,
"If everything is already written in destiny, than why should I wish ?"
 

then I say,
 "As you wish"

The business


My heart wanted only a kiss from you;
The price you asked for that kiss was my soul.
 
Heart jumped in the deep and flowed alongside soul,
Advising,

'Close the deal. The price is cheap.'

Ghazal untuk Rabiah




M. Nasir & Jamal Abdillah
Ghazal Untuk Rabiah


Kilauan intan berkelip-kelip di langit tinggi
Dan cahaya menari-nari di langit biru
Tidaklah dapat menenangkan perasaanku
Yang rindukan kehadiran kasih

Gemersik irama merdu buluh perindu
Dan nyanyian pari-pari dari kayangan
Tidaklah dapat tenteramkan sanubari
Yang mendambakan kepastian kasihmu

Rela lepaskan segala-gala yang ku ada
Andai itu yang kau hajatkan

Rela terima apapun syaratnya dan dugaan
Untuk ku buktikan cintaku

Asalkan dapat ku mengubati hatiku yang cedera
ditumpaskan cinta

Asalkan dapat ku menundukkan amukan gelora jiwa
Yang menagih kasih

Yang halus yang tulus
Yang mulus yang kudus

Semoga malamku tidak lagi jadi medan airmata
Menusuk segenap kalbuku

The truth, nothing but the truth? - dan sanadnya yang begitu...


  Seorang ahli loghat Kelantan menyebut..
"Sigheh mmakae kkambeng
dalam menyampaikan maksudnya kepada seorang yang lain..

Bayangkan.... 
apabila maklumat ini..
hendak disampaikan maksud serta kebenarannya..

penyampaian dari seorang yang memegang hak kebenarannya

apabila sanadnya ..
merentasi lokasi geografi seluas benua....
memakan masa berkurun lamanya..
bertitih lidah dan pendengaran berbilang generasi 
sebegitu ramainya para penyampai serta penerima yang beraksi.. 
pada detik penyampaian di pelbagai perbezaan situasi dan dimensi..

untuk diperturunkan ilmunya pada seseorang yang lain

apakah mungkin yang tersampai maksudnya adalah..
"Sireh makan kambing"

ataupun yang lebih arif akan mengubah dan mengolah..
memutar ayat.. lalu menulis..
 "Kambing makan sireh"?


Jadi apa yang benar, sebenarnya?
What exactly is the Truth?
