refuge to flee


Jim Henson: A puppeteer’s advice, Zen Pencils

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

waktu tergelincir sudah
tak hilang bayangan lembut jemarinya
menyeka deras air mata,
redakan isak tangisku.

canda nada ceritanya
tak luput dari telinga dan menggema
mengusik belaian duka lara,
antarku melawan lelah


Tinggal kisah,yang tergores dan terujar di akal ku.
cukup kah lembaran cerita merekam kasih itu.

berpuluh kali musim lalu
tak pernah terdengar keluh dibibirnya
demi harapan yang diam di tepi
hingga nafas terhitung ahkir.


Tinggal kisah,yang tergores dan terujar di akal ku.
cukup kah lembaran cerita merekam kasih itu.
mampukah berbait syair melantunkan rasa rindu.

Once a group of 500 people were attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each person a balloon. Each person was then asked to write their name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
The people were then let into that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written on it within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.

At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Then, the speaker asked each person to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The speaker then began, “This is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life…the pursuit of happiness.”
