Barusan selesai membaca buku Sakinah Bersamamu by Asma Nadia. Cukup menginspiratif, walaupun sesungguhnya amatlah tepat kalau buku ini dibaca oleh bagi kaum muslimah, dan terkhususnya bagi yang mereka yang juga sudah menikah. Tapi gak apalah, aku laki-laki yang masih bujangan ini juga gak ada larangan untuk membacanya kok, hehe. Dari sana aku menemukan beberapa istilah inspiratif yang aku share di blog ini. Moga bermanfaat bagi pembaca sekalian ūüôā

Cinta mestinya bagai sepasang sayap yang membawa kita terbang tinggi. Cinta mestinya bagai udara yang membuat kita selalu memiliki harapan. Tapi cinta mestinya juga bagai lukisan yang tak kunjung selesai, dengan begitu kita tak pernah meninggalkannya. (more…)

‚ÄúJika kamu menolong agama Allah, maka Allah akan menolongmu dan meninggikan kedudukanmu‚ÄĚ (QS Muhammad: 7).

Petikan ayat di atas senantiasa menjadi bagi penyemangat bagi para da‚Äôi untuk senantiasa bersemangat dalam menyampaikan kebaikan, menyampaikan untaian ayat demi ayat, agar semakin banyak orang yang berada dalam jalan Allah SWT. Suatu semangat bahwa walaupun tampak berat beban dakwah yang diemban, namun ada suatu keyakinan bahwa pertolongan Allah pasti akan datang, karena Allah tidak akan membiarkan hambaNya yang menegakkan agamaNya berada dalam kesulitan. Walau harus banyak yang terkorbankan, berupa tenaga, harta, bahkan jiwa. Namun ada keyakinan bahwa semua itu tidak akan hilang sia-sia begitu saja, tetapi akan diganti Allah dengan sesuatu yang lebih baik dari arah yang tidak disangka-sangka pertolongan itu datangnay.¬† Bahkan, Allah pun telah menjanjikan berupa ditinggikan kedudukan bagi mereka yang benar-benar ikhlas menolong agama islam ini.

Baru-baru ini sempat chat via fb dengan salah seorang adek kelas MTsN dulu. Satu dari sedikit adek kelas yang masih keep contact hingga sekarang. Hal itu karena pas masih di MTsN dulu cukup sering berinteraksi, karena kita sama-sama bersama mengurus Pramuka dan OSIS MTsN. Aku dulu menjadi Pratama pada periode 2002/2003, dan dia yang melanjutkan estafet dengan menjadi Pratami pada periode 2003/2004. Sebelumnya aku merupakan danton pleton tiap-tiap lomba PBB antar sekolah, dan setelah purna dari Pramuka posisi danton digantikan olehnya. Kemudian kita juga pernah satu tim dalam lomba pramuka untuk bidang cerdas tangkas.

Dalam kesempatan chat kali ini, dia mengingatkan akan saat masih di MTsN dulu, saat nilai dan peringkat nya di kelas jatuh setelah penerimaan rapor semester dua kelas satu, dari yang sebelumnya ranking 1 turun ke ranking 4, yang membuatnya frustrasi berat, seakan tidak menerima kenyataan tersebut. Dia menyampaikan masih ingat akan nasehat dan motivasi yang aku berikan terkait problematikanya tersebut. Apakah yang aku sampaikan? Jangankan nasehatnya, kalau ada kejadian itu pun aku gak ingat sebenarnya. Akibatnya, cap sebagai pelupa akut pun melekat pada diriku. Penasaran, akhirnya akupun dibertahu detail cerita nya dan poin-poin inti nasehat yang pernah aku sampaikan. Dan topik nasehat tersebut coba aku tuliskan di blog ini, coba aku kembangkan (more…)

Hari ini (6 April 2012) aku dan teman-temang BPS Keuangan memanfaatkan hari libur akhir pekan ini dengan mengunjungi Pak Pembimbing tercinta kami, Pak Murdyanto. Selain kebetulan hari Jum’at ini adalah hari libur, hari ini bisa jadi hari kosong yang bisa untuk pergi ke tempat Pak Mur. Secara, besoknya seharian kami akan melakukan pelatihan HSSE, dan pada hari Minggunya sudah akan bertolak ke Garut, dalam rangka site visit selama satu minggu, dan tidak lama  setelah itu sudah akan berangkat OJT (On the Job Training).

Rumah Pak Mur ada di daerah Sentul, dekat sirkuit Sentul. Pasti semua sudah tau dong, apa itu sirkuit sentul. Kegiatan kami di tempat Pak Mur, biasa lah, makan-makan, minum-minum (teh botol maksudnya :D), dan juga mendengarkan nasihat-nasihat Pak Pembimbing dalam rangka persiapan sebelum OJT. Namun, kali ini aku tidak mengupas tentang acara intinya, tetapi acara lain yang sedikit banyak memberi asupan, atau lebih tepatnya asupan rohani.

Ternyata rumah yang kami kunjungi berdekatan dengan Masjid Muammar Khadafi, (more…)

Learning from an Eagle

You know? Eagle is one of animal which can life in long life in the world. An eagle can be alive until 70th years old. But, to achive this age, an eagle must pass a painingful moment for 150 days. It should be sacrifice to do a tranformation to get a new life.

When an eagle is 40th years old, its nails aren’t sharp anymore. This condition makes it difficult to pounce on its prey. At the same time, its mouth has been blunt which make it difficult to eat its food. Then, its feather in its wings is much more than before that makes it difficult to fly. There are only two choices for it, dead because hungry or alive but have to pass a morta physical pain for 150 days.

What will it do for alive? The eagle will go to the top of mountain, and lives there for 150 days, start to change. First, the eagle must strike hard its mouth to the rock until its old mouth broken. Then, it has to wait its new mouth growth again. The second process, the eagle will break its talon and wait again for the new talons. Then, in the last process, the eagle will tear off its feather one by one, and this process is the most painful. These are the process which must be done by an eagle for 5 months. How ever, because of these processes an eagle can be alive for 30 years more.

Actually, when decide to change, we should pass a painful process, and we have to survive and believe with the deciation. An eagle should pass 5 months to change and believe me, it is not easy. Same condition in our life, some time we should decide to do some thing bad as a price that we should pay for a better thing in the future. There is no change easy, face it, surviving, and be patient to get something better in the future.

Youths, The Agents of Change

Posted: October 28, 2011 in English
Tags: ,


History has proven, various¬†changes in order¬†to achieve¬†the nation‚Äôs progress¬†starts from¬†youths.¬†‚ÄúYouth Pledge‚Ä̬†shows us about the role of¬†youths¬†in¬†nation¬†building¬†while¬†the seconds to¬†achieve¬†independence of our country. ¬†Not stopping¬†at¬†Youth Pledge, in¬†the next decades¬†, youths¬†always¬†proved ¬†that they are¬†ultimately responsible for the¬†changes that¬†occur¬†in this country.¬†The event of ‚ÄúRengas¬†Dengklok‚ÄĚ is¬†one of the determinants and¬†the triggers¬†to achieve independent for this country.¬†Tri¬†Tura¬†in 1966 until¬†the¬†reformation time in 1998¬†become as a¬†witness to the history of how the youths ¬†play a big role in¬†anychanges¬†in¬†this country.

However, sometimes this heart is so sad when we saw the young generation of today. There are a lot of youths in this country who may have intellectual and adequate facilities than previous generations. However, look at what they do in most of their daily activities. There are a lot of youths who do kongko-kongko without a clear destination, spending time by playing game, or  do dugeman in discotheques. In the other hand, they are a potential asset of the nation, a generation who will replace the leaders of nations who would soon be going one by one. If the generation who will replace them and they have a bad character such as useless activity, would carry around the fate of this nation?

It is ironic, when we try to compare the first generation by all their contributions to the younger generation today. First generation, by all their limitations are able to do more for this nation as evidenced through a variety of momentum for changing in this country. In the contrary to the current generation, by all the amenities and technological advances have made them become slepping, busy with various activities which are not value-added for them and do not give a positive effect to develop this nation.

It’s fitting for the current youths to consider and evaluate what is happened today.¬†There are so many problems and disasters that befall to this country, would we still, to receive all events with resignation and despair?¬†The youths shold be responsible about that, because if not the young man, so ¬†who will change it? Who else could be hoped?¬†It is impossible if improvement and development in this country could do well if the youths’s behavior are not good, often to waste their time with useless activities.

It’s very difficult if the development of this country should wait for the older generation to be the main perpetrators.¬†Conversely, what happens is a kind of the stagnation of nation development.¬†The youths should take over the position to develop this country.¬†Because the youths whose mind is still clear to make changes, the youths who still have to advance the nation’s high ideals, and the youths who most be able to answer the challenging and changing times.¬†By all their strengths, so of course, a sustainable development will belongs to the youths generation.

Youths are the agents of change. It is time for current youths realize that they are genuinely responsible for improvement in this country. It is time for current youths coonsider that they must move, appearing as a spearhead forward, make changes to this country. For the sake of our expectations, expectations of Indonesian society, for the formation of a better future of Indonesia.

 

Actually, there are a lot of education problems of Indonesia. Such as unsupported facilities to make good education, the low of teachers’ welfare, the low character of the students, the school fee that so expensive, the problem of educational institution, yet the prevalence of a decent education for all regions in Indonesia, bad quality of the teachers, etc. But, in my opinion the last two problems above are the main problems among the other problems. So, at this time, we only talk about those problems. Actually, the other problems are also important to solve. But, because the limit of time so I just discuss about these; yet the prevalence of a decent education for all regions in Indonesia and bad quality of the teachers.

Our beloved country, Indonesia, is range from Sabang until Merauke. There are thousands small islands and there are five the biggest islands; Sumatera, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and Papua. Actually, for all of items, it should prevalence for all regions. But, in fact, it is centralized in Java Island. Including our educational quality and also the quality of the teachers aren’t prevalent for all regions of Indonesia. We just find good school, good college, good facilities, and also for the good teachers in Java Island. If in Java there are so many schools with many students and the teachers are excess. We will find a different condition in the isolated region, such as Bengkalis (Riau), Tulang  Bawang Barat (Lampung), Majene (Sulawesi Selatan), Sangihe Islands (Sulawesi Utara), Rote Ndao (NTT), Fakfak (Papua), etc. At those regions, we will find low quality of the teachers and also minimize educational facilities. How poor the children are over there! They should get same condition with the children in Java, because education is a right for them. May be, in those isolated regions, there are so many children who have good potential. But, because the limit of facilities and teachers, their potencies are undeveloped.

I think ‚ÄúIndonesia Teaching‚ÄĚ is made by Anies Baswedan will be able to one of solution to fix this condition. Indonesia has a lot of teachers in big cities, but not in isolated regions. So, the solution is by delivering the good teachers to there. In Indonesia Teaching program, the best young people from the best university who qualified with this program (called with Young Teacher) will deliver to isolated regions. They live alone there, become a teacher there, and also should socialize with the people over there to develop the region, implementing their knowledge there. The Young Teacher should qualify with some standards. They are not usually undergraduate person. They should have good GPA (at least 3.00), have an experience in organization and become leader over there, think maturity, and capable in teaching. Become a Young Teacher is not easy; they should pass some selection steps, such as administration selection, teaching assessment, leading assessment, and interview test.

Finally, we will find some young person who ready to deliver to isolated regions to develop that area, especially for its educational quality. They will fill the shortage of the teacher and inspire the society over there. The Young Teacher will be there for one year, and after that will be continued by the next of Young Teacher.

This program will be running for five years. So, the isolated regions will have developed in the quality of its education. We can predict, in the future, when all of isolated regions of Indonesia have been come by The Young Teacher, the quality of education will prevalence for all area of Indonesia. It will increase Indonesia’s Education quality. That’s why, Indonesia will be better, because educational quality is one of the requisite to be better.

Talk About Love

Posted: October 2, 2011 in English

If in this world there is no love, then life will be felt barren, empty and no dynamics. Love can make something heavy to light, which is difficult to be simple, hostility to peace, and far to be close. Those are the picture of the power of love.

 What is love? Actually, love can’t be defined by words. Humans can only understand by experiencing and feeling. A power of love can open the closed, turning the dark into the light, dislike into like, sad to be happy, and even can change devil to be angel.

¬†Love is always very interesting to discuss. Because why? Because its power, the power of love. Plato, one of the famous philosophy, he said, “Who is not¬†moved¬†by love,¬†means to walk¬†in darkness”. This statement shows us if love is very important according to Plato, even Plato said that someone who don‚Äôt interesting to discuss it, he/she is walking to darkness.

 In this chance, I will not discuss with you  about the definition of love. I worry if it will decrease the meaning of that love. Let’s love just be felt by the people who are falling in love. But we will discuss about the element of love.

 Erich Fromm, one of scientist in psychology, he said that there are four elements of love:

1. Care

You should give more attention and care with the object who you love. You must love yourself, so you will care with your body, if you are sick, you will go to hospital to treat it. You always take a shower every day to keep cleaning of your body. Same condition with the other object, if you love your parents, so you should care with them, care about their health, how are their feeling. So, you can  do something that make their happy.

2. Responsibility

Love must creates a responsibility to  the object that be loved. If you love your job, so you should do the best to your company. You will not go home before your job hasn’t finished in your office. Because of love, a mother can’t sleep while her daughter hasn’t come back. If you grow up and become parents later, you should responsible with your children, about their education, their wealth, even responsible to look for a partner for their life. If you love them, you should responsible about those.

 3.    Respect

 Love must create respect with the beloved object. If you love someone, you should accept what is the attitude of him/her. In the other side, you also should hear seriously when he/she talks, helps when he/she needs you. Every time when he/she misses you, when she/he needs you, you will come to her/him, and you’ll be there for her/him. It shows that you respects to her/him, make sure him/her  that you do love to him/her.

 4. Knowledge

 When you love someone or something, you should know them so well. Because after that you will do understand with them and do something that make them happy.  How come you will do love someone, in the other hand you don’t know even what their like and dislike, their excess and shortcoming. So before married you should know and understand very well about your couple. When you do understand and know so well, it will make you love her/him more and more, make you sure if he/she is really your life partner. If you love someone, before say I love you, please you should know everything about her/him, because understanding actually will show your love.

That’s all, if you want to success in your love, you must have all of these elements in your love. Last, I wanna say to you that the truly of  love is when you do love your God, when you do what God say to us and left what God disallowance. You will enjoy your life when you love your God, because in the same time God is loves you. When you come to God by walking, God will come to you by running. God will give you when you ask Him. Actually, God does love his creation as long as you always become good human, do activity that be loved by our God.

Love is the most beautiful word in the world.
