    hallo

    The meaningful life can result only from the experience of love and this implies commitment and dedication to another.

    We are each gifted with an enormous but unique potential. However, in our rendezvous with destiny, we have to take chances, run risks, get rejected and be hurt, be knock down and get back up on our feet.

    The only real failure is the one from which we learn nothing.

    Goodfinders are those who look for and find what is good in themselves, in others, and in all situations of life.

    Love person, use things! This is the truth that will set us free.

“Doing My Thing” versus I-Thou

Dua ungkapan puitik ini sangat menarik sebagai bahan renungan untuk menemukan diri sendiri dalam pergaulan yang dilandasi cinta-kasih. Yang pertama adalah “Gestalt Prayer” karangan Frederick Perls (1969):

I do my thing, and you do your thing.

I am not in this world to live up to our expectations,

And you are not in this world to live up to mine.

You are you and I am I;

If by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.

If not, it can’t be helped.

Sangat praktis, bukan? Cobalah bandingkan dengan pemahaman Walter Tubbs, seorang psikolog, dalam Journal of Humanistic Psychology, 12 (Fall 1972), halaman 5. Oleh Tubbs, puisi Perls itu dibuatnya lebih bergetar dengan “The truth begins with two” yang menyatakan bahwa kepenuhan sejati kemanusiaan kita hanya dapat terjadi dalam relasi cinta.

Beyond Perls

If I just do my thing and you do yours,

We stand in danger of losing each other

And ourselves.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations;

But I am in this world to confirm you

As a unique human being.

And to be confirmed by you.

We are fully ourselves only in relation to each other;

The I detached from a Thou

Disintegrates.

I do not find you by chance;

I find you by an active life

Of reaching out.

Rather than passively letting things happen to me,

I can act intentionally to make them happen.

I must begin with myself, true;

But I must not end with myself:

The truth begins with two.

Semoga bermanfaat!
