Mother Teresa dan Kontemplasi

Mother teresa.01

Di tengah hiruk pikuk kampanye calon presiden, telinga dan mata kita dijejali oleh informasi yang kadang tidak sehat ; kita perlu ambil waktu berkontemplasi.

Di tengah banyaknya berita menyakitkan mata hati dan mematikan akal sehat kita, terutama kekerasan seksual terhadap anak kecil yang sangat tinggi di negeri ini; kita perlu ambil waktu berkontemplasi.

Di tengah masalah hidup kita secara pribadi, karir, pekerjaan, ekonomi, hubungan dengan keluarga, pasangan & teman, krisis kepercayaan; kita perlu ambil waktu berkontemplasi.

Bagiku kata-kata bijak Mother Teresa ini dapat menjadi salah satu penyembuh yang melegakan hati. Cobalah renungkan nasihat bijak IBU yang tak pernah melahirkan tapi memiliki ratusan juta anak-anak di seluruh dunia ini.

= Mother Teresa =

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.

People are often unreasonable and self centered. Forgiven them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse youulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you, Be honest anyway.

If you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough, give the world the best you have anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
