Enlightenment

“What’s on your mind?” – Facebook asked me. I still am a little bird wanting to spread its wings but scared of falling down to infinity. There lives a demon inside each of us. We fear nothing but fear ourselves, a war within happens every single second, we, trying to get out of inner struggle, to be freed from our own dark side. Be freed, not be separated. Because we all need our shadow to be as a whole. My shadow and I, harmonizing.

Well, some little thoughts just keep popping out in no particular cognitive flow..

1. Ultimately, good things will come to those who deserve it. Everyone is given the golden chance, to live. The choice is ours, whether to spoil it or make it bright. True enough, home is behind us but future is in front of us (The Hobbit). Not trying, not facing challenges do you no good. It is okay to make mistake, but it is not right to know so but do nothing to change it. A mistake made once is acceptable, twice, it already becomes the bad habit.

2. Schools to most of us could be the waste of time. Exams, tests, assignments are bullsh*t but no one could neglect the importance of education. Not only academically but education must focus on the interpersonal self, educates the minds, nurtures a person, a human being, not a nerd. We are being produced in batches, Class of 2012 this short of labeling; our brains are being shaped on a systematic procedure, which simply called Text book. All go through the same old process. It takes one man courage to be different. Ordinary and Extra-ordinary are being defined in the thin line of that Extra.

3. Social judgement and expectation are scary. Psychologically, we have a self-fulfilling prophecy. Meaning, if you keep thinking of something hard enough, eventually it would come true. Therefore, external forces could be terrified, but if our “inner peace” is strong, we could blow them away.

4. “To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” – Buddha
