|Reflective hero, 2013.|
Midi, if i may share. A guru-friend once told me that for a very very brief moment before thinking and feeling set in, we experience the light. After that, its ego doing the looking. Of course, then comes 'explanations' and namings, such as beautiful, nice, or for some, romanticism, exoticism, cliche, so on so forth...... Some would refer to it as a 'veil', that obscures us from seeing beyond forms. I would accept it as a part of our built-in package. As long as we are aware that we are essentially witnessing or experiencing the phenomena of light (energy) in which we r a part of, InsyaAllah our veils will be uplifted, and our mouth will utter 'masyaAllah' or 'subhanallah' without the filterings of ego as , similar to what u did with your fingers as u typed in your words or brush your canvas with paints. Salam my fren.
Terima kasih,Guru. Peringatan dan nasihat. boleh share ke ?. "Cahaya" dan "hati". kerana Hatilah yang menyerap cahaya dan memantulkan cahaya. Dlm perkataan lain Qalbu. Apa yang terkesan dari luar itulah refleksi diri .Seperti yg en sebutkan Cahaya,process of doing and looking,"Veil" /hijab, experiences. Klu Menurut Imam alGhazali, Hati ibarat telaga mencermin . kalau ia nyatakan telaga dh tentu ada air dan permukaannya berolak/ ripple ,memantulkan pelbagai bentuk benda yang menuju padanya sehingga tampak bayangan bermacam bentuk itu silih berganti, tanpa henti. . Allahualam. saya baru berlajar.. tapi kadang kala Alpa,Lupa...Cermin kdg2 tak berapa bersih,kelabu disalut debu (Veil)...
(Thank you. Teacher. Reminder and advise. Can I share? "Light" and "Heart", because it is the heart that absorbs the light and reflects it. In other words, Qalbu. What we see outside, is a reflection of our inner self, like what you refer to as light. Process of doing and looking is a veil, including experiences. According to Imam alGhazali the heart is like a reflective well. If he referred to well, certainly there must be water with rippling surface, to reflect many forms of things until we see so many shadows in myriads of interchangeable forms, non-stop. Only God knows. I am just a beginner, but sometimes I forget to 'reflect', sometimes not very clean, grey with dust (veil).)
Midi, penerangan merujuk AlGhazali itu amat tepat dan selalu dikuliahkan pd saya oleh ayahanda saya menerusi kitab kitab kuning lusuh dia. Waktu tu saya remaja dan byk merapu bukan dengor sgt. Sekarang ia timbul kembali. Dari situlah lahirnya siri ' Hijab Nurbaya', 'Hijab Seorang Pelukis' dan 'Kocak di Fukuoka' yg semuanya dah jadi tinggalan dan tanda perjalanan.
(Midi, your reference to AlGhazali is right on the dot and was always lectured to me by my father through his old yellowish books. I was a nonsensical teenager then, I didn't really pay any attention to what he said. Now it came back. From there, "Veil of Nurbaya", "Veil of An Artist" and "Ripples of Fukuoka" were born, all of which have become signposts for my journey.)
Terima kasih, semoga semua meperolehi kabaikannya ,sama-sama. wokey.
(Thank you, hope we receive God's blessing together, ok.)
