I’ve just watched this movie. So inspiring. Totally agree that we should somehow more tolerance to others, no matter what they backgrounds are.

May the peace always be with us.

But, since i’m working on public sector, the most memorable quote would be this one :

Cina : Kau disubsidi pemerintah sekolah disini buat bantuin pemerintah mikir. Kalau kau cuma bisa nyalah – nyalahin pemerintah, buat apa kau diluluskan. Republik ini udah kebanyakan sarjana nyinyir.

There are things
we don’t want to happen
but have to accept.
Things we don’t want to know
but have to learn.
And people
we can’t live without
but have to let go. -JJ-


We have nothing if not believe

That ‘s what reepicheep said to eustace.

I just watched Narnia : The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; in 3D mode! No, i dont want to review this movie. It is the experienced. Watching this movie in 3D mode, you would have no subtitle in Bahasa. Actually, as far as i know, all movie presented on 3D will be presented without subtitle.

Entering the theater, i just couldnt stop laughing. Haha.. All people looks like a moron, with that stupid 3d glasses. After i found my seat and started to put my glasses, it became funnier. All people became lady gaga, including me. ahahaha….

Ok, go to the movie.

Blimey! they speak fast and of course with their heavy British accent. sotoy. Sometime, i was lost in translation. Literally.

The jokes. It is even better. I love to have those British jokes. Like Lightman did in Lie To Me. Very typically British jokes. Stupid accent with silly face like nothing happens. It’s just perfect.

The 3d mode, it is not so spectacular. I recall there is only one memorable scene related to the 3d effect. When the arrow flew away, hitting the creature.

Back to the topic. I could say that this movie has so many inspirational speeches.

“extraordinary things happen in extraordinary people.”

“Because there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.”

With so-heavy-aslan-voice, the message becomes more meaningful. So what reepicheep did. Although he is so talkative, his words really show his noble heart as a warrior, as a servant.

Good movie for self reflecting.

Be brave! for narnia!! for people we loved!!!


Where has it gone?

When i watched series Flash forward, one of the episodes told about sufi parable. It is about the source light of the candle. I googled it and found it. It is about Disciplehood.

When the great Sufi mystic, Hasan, was dying, somebody asked “Hasan, who was your master?”

He said, “I had thousands of masters. If I just relate their names it will take months, years and it is too late. But three masters I will certainly tell you about.

One was a thief. Once I got lost in the desert, and when I reached a village it was very late, everything was closed. But at last I found one man who was trying to make a hole in t he wall of a house. I asked him where I could stay and he said ‘At this time of night it will be difficult, but you can say with me – if you can stay with a thief’

And the man was so beautiful. I stayed for one month! And each night he would say to me, ‘Now I am going to my work. You rest, you pray.’ When he came back I would ask ‘Could you get anything?’ He would say, ‘Not tonight. But tomorrow I will try again, God willing.’ He was never in a state of hopelessness, he was always happy.

When I was meditating and meditating for years on end and nothing was happening, many times the moment came when I was so desperate, so hopeless, that I thought to stop all this nonsense. And suddenly I would remember the thief who would say every night, ‘God willing, tomorrow it is going to happen.’

And my second master was a dog. I was going to the river, thirsty and a dog came. He was also thirsty. He looked into the river, he saw another dog there — his own image — and became afraid. He would bard and run away, but his thirst was so much that he would come back. Finally, despite his fear, he just jumped into the water, and the image disappeared. And I knew that a message had come to me from God: one has to jump in spite of all fears.

And the third master was a small child. I entered a town and a child was carrying a lit candle. he was going to the mosque to put the candle there.

‘Just joking,’ I asked the boy, ‘Have you lit the candle yourself?’ He said, ‘Yes sir.’ And I asked, ‘There was a moment when the candle was unlit, then there was a moment when the candle was lit. Can you show me the source from which the light came?’

And the boy laughed, blew out the candle, and said, ‘Now you have seen the light going. Where has it gone? You will tell me!’

My ego was shattered, my whole knowledge was shattered. And that moment I felt my own stupidity. Since then I dropped all my knowledgeability.

It is true that I had no master. That does not mean that I was not a disciple — I accepted the whole existence as my master. My Disciplehood was a greater involvement than yours is. I trusted the clouds, the trees. I trusted existence as such. I had no master because I had millions of masters I learned from every possible source. To be a disciple is a must on the path. What does it mean to be a disciple? It means to be able to learn. to be available to learn to be vulnerable to existence. With a master you start learning to learn.

The master is a swimming pool where you can learn how to swim. Once you have learned, all the oceans are yours.”

The thief, the dog, and the boy…

Do you get the point?


Life is…

My recent post is a quote. Now i post another quote. This one comes from mother Teresa; again, i got this quote from criminal minds series. Life o life… there you go.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is too precious, do not destroy it. Life is life, fight for it.

Mother Teresa
