New Year’s Resolution – serious ranting

My home is near the MRT railway, every five minutes two 6-car trains will go to both directions. And, today they do their routine of life. But there is something different, like they know it is almost 2019 and want to celebrate the year exchange.

The trains sound more merrier.

And the vehicles in the crossroad just down floors below run like no energy is lacking or no drowsiness greets the drivers.

Around where I live there are a lot of trees that I hope won’t be cut down for long years to come. I love them as they are the ones making my breath lighter and healthier. And tonight I feel they send out purer air to me.

And there is a reservoir that is cleaned daily by the boatmen on the blue boats. It still looks dark at night but the water reflection is clearer and more magnificent.

All do more magic tonight…. Because it is new year tomorrow. And I am infected by their spirit of best performance of now here and so I want to be in the harmony with Nature now here and next year.

I might not be able to get a mentor that I expected but I will make myself the best mentor for myself to be more professional – clarity on what I do, purity on what I intend. I might not be the best of all but I will make myself the best version of me – committed and true. I might not get everything I wish but I will make myself to get what’s the best I deserve.

Tonight I welcome 2019 at home looking at my plants in the small balcony, going back and forth the fridge to get cool water – I don’t drink beer fyi, seeing all the passers by, enjoying the dogs’ smell from the one living under my balcony. The air, water, cloud, unseen sky, shy rain, greenery in the black black new year’s eve, all people celebrating far away with the fireworks, all the animals with shelters or without, all the blessed life under the sun, and all

To you I wish a….

…. Happy New Year 2019! The best is welcoming you.

I know next year is mine, too.

Discrimination (English)

Have you ever been discriminated? Based on any factors – religion, ethnic group, age, political stance, sexual orientation, education, gender, et cetera any other possible ways which are all possible under the sun. I’ve seen people discriminating and being discriminated. So sad, vulnerable and weak.

Imagine a group of migrant workers among a crowd of locals in a factory, they are of weak bargaining position. At the end of the day they will say yes to any tasks given as long as they can survive until at least the contract is finished.

Someone told me of being discriminated based on gender – the same job description, the same  length of tenure, different gender, different salary & benefits. What would you do?

And, in a modern country whose per capita income is the highest in the region people are ghostly discriminative against migrant workers. When people are jealous and out of clear thinking, they would think as wild as the charging bull. They think migrant workers are not as good as them, even the skill is proven against time and space. In their mind is only “getting rid of those foreigners who have taken our job opportunities”. Educated is just a word, they are not well educated actually.

Are you white? Or, black? Or, colored?

Some people — some — respect whites more than they do black or colored. I have been colored since I was born and I am thankful for being naturally safe from skin cancer but was once — twice, thrice, etc — so disappointed when local people serve my white colleagues better, treat them as if they were hints and queens. In fact, they are just THE SAME. What’s wrong with you, local colored people? Do you think white is more just because they are white? Wake up!

You treat animals like sh*t “just” because they are animals? That is a wider discrimination. And, this is even to helpless creature that have nothing but instinct to cry to the Universe.

But, when humanity and love are gathered in someone’s heart…. Discriminating is a ridiculous thing, a self mockery? Nothing but absence of sanity and clear thinking —

Love yourself. If you want others to respect you, respect others first. Love yourself more…. If you love yourself, you’ll love others and will never discriminate with any single basis possible which are all possible under the sun.

Cats will love you. Dogs will love you. Rabbits will love you. Birds will love you. Insects will love you. Horse will love you. Flies will love you. Mosquitoes will love you. Leaves will love you. Flowers, trees, wind, sun-ray, water, all will love you….. Human being will love you, too.

Namaste.

Dari milis with magic. Saya udah nyoba, dan memang magical… J


MAGIC #1
Orang India menemukan bahwa tidak ada seorang pun yang dapat membuat
FOLDER di komputer dengan program Microsoft manapun dengan judul folder
“CON”, “LPT1”, “COM1”. Cobalah dengan membuat sebuah folder dengan nama CON atau con. Bukalah My Document/File/New/Folder lalu ketik CON atau Con atau con. Apa yang terjadi?

MAGIC #2
Bagi anda para pengguna Windows, lakukanlah hal berikut ini:
1) Buka sebuah notepad file kosong
2) Ketiklah “Bush hid the facts” (tanpa tanda kutip ya)
3) Save di mana pun anda suka
4) Tutuplah dan bukalah kembali file tersebut.
Aneh bukan?

MAGIC #3
Microsoft Crazy Facts
Cobalah hal yang menarik ini, sungguh aneh! Bahkan Bill Gates sendiri
tidak menemukan jawabannya kenapa ini bisa terjadi! Hal ini ditemukan oleh
orang Brazil. Cobalah!

Apa yang anda temukan? Menarik bukan? Coba aja…..
