EMBRACING PARADOX - BETWEEN MEDITATING AND RUNNING A COUNTRY

In the middle of my father's lecture to my big family (whilst quoting Al-Ghazali's), my mom used to interrupt, "kalau semua orang buang semua kehendak dan keingingan, betapa atas gunung, siapa nak bagi makan anak-anak dan uruskan negara? (if everyone dispels wishes and desires, meditating in mountains, who is going to feed the kids, and run the country?"). My father just put a 'selamba' face and continued with his lecture. I miss them.
