​Mata Lelaki.

Yang Muda VS Yang Dewasa.

Sore menjelang malam saya dan teman-teman satu kost terlibat perbincangan seputar lelaki, pria dengan fantasinya. Menurut teman-teman saya, lawan jenis kadang menyimpan rapat sebuah hasrat namun beberapa dari mereka tidak pemalu dan mengumbar pesona lewat geliat atau busana tertentu. Pada akhirnya kami sepakat bahwa hal-hal yang tabu baik untuk dibincangkan lewat kerangka berpikir yang sehat. Jika coba dipendam, hal itu akan mencari ‘jalan keluar’ lewat berbagai usaha yang kadang konyol (childish).

Secara pribadi, aspek kehidupan seputar hasrat dan cinta serta beragam sisi yang menyertainya adalah indah, walau dalam beberapa kondisi khusus diperlukan komunikasi terbatas.

Hal menggelitik yang menggulirkan tulisan ini adalah kejadian minggu siang di lantai 4 food court, mall seputar Kuningan. Seorang pria muda baru saja datang. Ia celingak-celinguk, terlihat bingung mencari tempat duduk. Bukannya tidak ramah, adapun saya sedang terlibat pembicaraan serius dan kebetulan hanya kenal sekilas dengannya. Untuk seketika dia sempat berdiri tidak jauh dari meja kami. Sesekali matanya melirik pojokan meja dekat dinding kaca ruangan. Di sana duduk seorang wanita oriental yang mengenakan baju longgar tanpa lengan. Setau saya, pria ini sudah memiliki pasangan, tapi sepertinya sedang lupa memakai ‘kaca mata kuda’ saat sang gadis tidak terlihat dalam area radarnya. Sayapun sekilas memperhatikan wanita muda itu sekitar 20 menit yang lalu. Saat itu saya dan rekan baru memulai pembicaraan serius seputar isu sosial. Wanita muda tadi tiba-tiba datang dan memilih duduk sendirian, tidak jauh dari kami. Ia lantas mojok terlihat sibuk dengan laptopnya.

Setelah perbincangan seputar lelaki malam Rabu, entah mengapa peristiwa 3 minggu lalu terlintas kembali…

Kelemahan dan kekuatan lelaki pertama-tama mungkin memang di matanya. Pria dianugerahi cara berpikir logis lewat apa yang dilihatnya langsung. Namun petaka yang samapun berlaku jika mata tidak dijaga. Untuk tingkat lanjut beberapa pria dianugerahi ‘vision’, kemampuan melihat masa depan dan hal-hal besar.

Alkisah seorang budak di Mesir disuguhi pemandangan indah nyonya dari tuannya, mungkin hampir setiap hari. Pada suatu kesempatan, di ruangan itu hanya ada mereka berdua, tidak ada halangan untuk berbuat bebas. Lagipula sang nyonyalah yang datang untuk menawarkan diri. Hebatnya, sesaat kemudian sang budak memilih untuk kabur. Karena sang nyonya kesal telah ‘ditolak’ permintaannya, si budak difitnah melakukan pelecehan fisik. Kehormatan moral sebenarnya akan terlihat dari sikap dan keputusan di saat yang kritis. Pada banyak cerita hidup hal itu melampaui status sosial, strata pendidikan, dan kekayaan.

Perbincangan kami tentang mentalitas pria dan kesetiaannya memang ambigu. Kaum lelaki dilahirkan alamiah dengan potensi besar untuk menyalurkan hasrat dalam sekejap. Manusia pertama bernama Adam di Taman Eden secara tersirat adalah contoh yang gamblang. Dilihatnya buah di tengah taman itu sedap & tergigit. Ia lantas menghabiskan sisanya tanpa banyak komentar. Saat diminta tanggungjawab oleh Sang Empunya Pohon Buah Terlarang ia lantas melempar kesalahan penuh pada sang penggigit buah pertama.

Godly man.. pursueing Godly principal

Mungkin benar seloroh teman akademisi bahwa bahwa kebanyakan Adam dengan matanya itu ‘lambat dewasa’. Ia lupa bahwa semua keindahan yang dilihatnya tidak selamanya mulus terawat (temporary, need handling with care). Semua tindakan fisik menuntut tanggungjawab moral, semua hal fisik ada masa kadaluarsanya juga.

Tulisan ini bukan untuk menghakimi siapapun, sayapun bercermin sembari menulisnya. Namun sejujurnya sebagai pria utuh, siapapun lelaki perlu menginsyafi dirinya dalam melewati tahapan jiwa muda untuk kemudian menjadi dewasa. Sebelum kedewasaan itu menjadi penuh maka ia akan dikendalikan oleh mata jasmani yang hakekatnya selalu menuntut pemuasan segera. Muncul kemudian istilah puber kedua dan ketiga sebagai analogi ‘pembenaran’. Tidak heran banyak dari kami yang diam-diam tergelincir jatuh bahkan untuk pribadi yang berhikmat tinggi seperti raja Salomo (Sulaiman) sekalipun.

Special Needs Kid

A Strange Physical Phenomena Nowadays.

Meet Jack, a 2nd grade student. He often bite his fingers nail. When getting stressed (mad), he’ll pluck his hair (a certain wound spot could see on his head). He’s a special needs kid that strugling with his eye sight (minus) & autism.

Kids are treasures in the future.

I’m living in a boarding house with other teachers and we had a discussion about kids nowadays that wearing minus glassess in a very young age. Few of them also having down syndrom or other special needs cases. Some parents that having special needs kid sending them to school and have big expectation it will solved by teachers. Others even don’t really care to involve by giving them to their nanny (kids assistant).

In some articles (analysis), this sad phenomena happening caused by a genetic factor. Parents that having minus sight more than 5 usually having kids wearing glasses from the age of 3. Autism possibly an impact of chemical or hormonal process. Fastfood industry had bring a huge effect for obesity in developing & modern country.

My crucial point is, a kid like Jack deserve a chance to experience the bright side of this world. But for gain that goal he will going to experience an extra effort, since he is including to the special need group. While people need to evaluate about the way they live, for support a better generation there’s a breaktrough need to be done in our perspective. With parents, physoclogist, mentor/tutor hand in hand supporting kids like Jack since early age, we could see a bright side in the future made by them.

In our first Elementary Chapel, in front those kids Pastor Sammy explained about how we were created in GOD’s image. It’s mean HIS character well established in us. We only need to express them in our daily life. Be kind, obey, & diligent are 3 main examples that relevant for teachers & students. At first I wondered if a kid like Jack could ecperience it.

Eating together at canteen, a lovely view by their sincere.

Infact, Jack is a good student. As long he’s in the good mood, he’ll follow my teaching and doing those task that I’ve given. Luckyly Jack is studying with other kind kids in the class. I told them to share each other and helping Jack in daily activity. Jack also need to learn how to trust his friend when they are coming to help with sincere.

Human were created with heart. As long we gain their trust then everything’s gonna be ok. We were created to be social beside our individualism (uniq). Let us heal each other by get to know better on each other.

​SINGLE by Raditya Dika.

Happiness has a lot of form, be smart & keep fun.

Liburan.. selain jalan², bermalas ria, beberes kamar atau rumah, olah raga, dan karaoke, maka menonton film sangat menyenangkan untuk dilakukan. Gak banyak film Indonesia yang ok menurut saya karena alur ceritanya sebagian besar mudah ditebak.

Film SINGLE oleh Raditya Dika menyelipkan beberapa insight. Apa arti seorang single dan bagaimana usahanya dalam menggapai cinta. Pentingnya kejujuran sebagai nilai hidup utama yang kadang terlupakan sangat kental tersirat sejak awal hingga akhir adegan.

Funny things teach us to smile

Sudah jamak bahwa cinta modern mengajarkan peran tebalnya kosmetik demi ‘kesan sempurna’ sebagai cara terbaik menggapai cinta. Film ini mengingatkan bahwa kebahagiaan langgeng penggiat cinta adalah saat ia jujur dengan hidupnya selama proses pencarian cinta.

Tetap dengan akal sehat, kebahagiaan adalah saat cinta tidak mengekangnya menjadi pribadi yg terbaik dalam kapasitas dan panggilan mereka masing².

Film ini berisi kelucuan aksi teman² Ebi yang coba membantunya meluluhkan hati Angel, seorang gadis mandiri dengan jiwa sosial yang tinggi. Film ini juga menentramkan dengan mengedepankan kebaikan dan ketulusan sebagai pesona terbaik dari Ebi. Tidak banyak rayuan dan adegan gombal, karena hidup ini memang sudah indah dari sananya.

Happy movie time guys!

Here Comes the Boom with Warrior

A moment of breaktrough is a welcome struggle in life trough!

If you are searching for uncommon story of a teacher, you should watch how Mr. Voss & Mr. Brendan Conlon fight with huge effort in their life. Me, personally not a big fan of violent movies. But for some reasons these two movies will put us into our tears drop. A mixed of comedy and a little bit of romance got into the movie “Here Comes the Boom!”

Warrior is an ironic movie about how a teacher struggling for his family by choosing MMA (Mixed Martial Art) sport as his last option to get some cash. So, if you are searching a sport movie that contain family recovery relationship, especially between men in family then you need to watch “Warrior”.

​WAR ROOM

Turning a Messing into Blessing.

The movie is set on daily urban family problem. A couple that working, usually having short time of communication. They are focusing on chasing money to cover family cost & persuing their dreams. When it comes to comparing each contribution for family, then the clash indicate serious attention before it’s too late.

Tony & Elisabeth Jordan is struggling with them self. Ego and their own understanding only bring chaos & mess (kekacauan), far from solution. They tried for a help from friends but it seems no used. Mrs. Clara was only a client at beginning for Elisabeth. Time flies and then they are becoming good friend. As a prayer warrior, she was mentoring Elisabeth about war strategies, how to win the family problem trough prayers. Slowly but sure everything just set into its place when they let GOD in charge trough faith in prayers & declaration.

A secret place is sacred & mostly a favorit one for a prayer warrior.

‘A normal’ christian life mostly fail to recognize problem or offering help in serious family problem. War Room is giving us guidence and comprehensive understanding about what praying could do in recover a messing into blessing. By giving GOD a role to doing HIS part in miracleous way, GOD’s people would find out that grace trough speaking HIS words is a powerful weapon. The real enemy (devil) always try to hide (invisible). Based on that, a help from heaven is the only way to gain total victory over crisis.

I’m learning some fundamental keys in a battle trough prayer from this movie. Total surender (faith), commitment in praying/declare Scripture & less complaining to others are some insights from it. I was watching the film for second time with my sister and her husband to brought inspiration at their house. They are in church ministry, but nobody imune from trials right?
