SPIRITUALITY WHEEL


Reform begins at a personal/individual level first. Individual reform may begin by acknowledging the complimentary symbiosis of two spiritual & epistemological leanings:

1. Head: cognitive, facts & logic, verbal, rational, empirical, positivist, thinking spirituality
2. Heart: knowing by intuitive feeling, subjectivity, interpretive, phenomenological & affective spirituality

Each leaning contains two stages of experience. All four stages complete a spiritual wheel. 

Which spiritual stage do you belong to, now?

A LETTER FROM HASHWINI

"Dear Mr. Hasnul aka ayah angkat NMT

Before I start this, I wanna tell you thank you for showering us(New Media Students) love of a father. Sincerely from me I have never seen a lecture or even a teacher who’s so dedicated and love his students without seeing color of their skin. You’re truly and awesome human being. I really admire that strength in you. I don’t know about others but I still love your teaching and activities in class even if you’re strict. Maybe this is just apart of your strictness, haven’t see the real you ðŸĪŠ. 

I love the way you love your two daughters (Every girl is always a Princess to her father). They are very bless to have a father like you. When I read your blog about your daughter, Oh My God I really felt that love. 
I never really got a father’s love in my life even when I was a kid, but sometimes I really can feel that through you in our class. You’re truly amazing ayah. Not only that but also your love towards your Hero too. 😇 

I’m so much appreciated the special attention you have given to our class. Thank you for not making us learn the way others wanted to teach, but teaching us the way we need to learn. You always get angry in class (obviously for our mistakes) but end of the day you made us laugh before you leave. 
Not dragging much... Thank you for your ilmu. Thank you for teaching me. I may never do your work as good as you wanted but I learn something and I will keep doing my best in all my other assignments. 

I’m really sorry if I have ever been an irresponsible student or if i have done any mistakes during your class.ðŸŒŧðŸŒŧ

Thank you for the marks given for the assignments. I accept it and I will improve in the future. 😊"

SEGENTING KRA : WILAYAH ASAL WARISAN TOK TAHA

Pada masa dahulu, semenanjung Tanah Melayu turut meliputi wilayah Segenting Kra yang kini termasuk di dalam wilayah Negara Thai dan Myanmar. Penduduk di Negeri Patani bertutur dalam Bahasa Melayu dialek Kelantan (Yawi) sementara penduduk Melayu daripada wilayah Setul hinggalah ke Rundung dan Pulau Dua (Kawthoung) di dalam wilayah Myanmar pada hari ini bertutur dalam Bahasa Melayu dialek Kedah.

Penduduk Melayu di kawasan ini bukanlah pendatang, sebaliknya merupakan kaum pribumi yang telah menduduki kawasan ini sejak zaman berzaman, iaitu warisan daripada Kerajaan Srivijaya dan Langkasuka. 

Binaan di Rundung (Ranong) yang menjelaskan sempadan sebenar bumi Melayu dan Siam, Selepas kejatuhan Kerajaan Siam yang berpusat di Ayuthia pada tahun 1767 akibat serangan Burma, telah bangkit satu kuasa Thai iaitu Kerajaan Thonburi di bawah pemerintahan Raja Taksin. Raja Taksin ini telah menyerang Kerajaan-kerajaan Melayu di Negeri Ligor, Cahaya, Rundung, Terang, Ghraibi, Bukit, Bedalung dan Singgora. Negeri Patani terselamat daripada serangan tersebut. Walaubagaimanapun, benteng terakhir negeri Melayu ini kemudiannya berhadapan dengan serangan demi serangan daripada pihak Thai.

Anglo-Siamese Treaty, 1909, yang dibuat antara British dengan pihak Thailand telah memisahkan sama sekali semenanjung Tanah Melayu kepada dua bahagian. Perjanjian ini dibuat tanpa melibatkan perbincangan dengan Raja-raja Melayu di negeri-negeri yang berkenaan. Wilayah-wilayah milik Melayu daripada Patani, Singgora, Setul hinggalah ke segenting Kra telah diakui British sebagai hak milik Thai.

nama-nama tempat yang berbaur Melayu di kawasan segenting Kra juga telah diubah kepada sebutan dalam Bahasa Thai. Di bawah ini dinyatakan kembali nama sebenar antara sebahagian kawasan-kawasan di bahagian selatan Siam dalam Bahasa Melayu yang telah di’Thai’kan untuk peringatan dan rujukan kita semua serta generasi akan datang khasnya.

OLD & YOUNG PEOPLE

OMG, u still keep this! Im so very touched. It actually came from my parents, especially my late father. Credits to them. Tq for sharing and reminding me as Im also getting jaded and sad. So timely, as just this morning, I was given an 'advise' by a so-called 'xpert' who seemed to hold a demeaning view on 'mature and old demography' as if they r worthless. This xpert also 'advises' me on the importance of focusing on 'young people' as a 'targeted demography' for 'branding' exercise. I though that it is our duty to bring together the old and the young together through 'love and compassion' instead of separating and creating a chasm between them. Siew Woei, I needed to see this. The Universe has its own way to heal me (us). Thank you & luv infinity.

UNTUK PERHATIAN : BEKAS AHLI MAJLIS PROFESSOR NEGARA


"An advice I appreciated because it taught me to teach with heart and not as an exchange of currency. Praise God, He did it through 18 years although I felt so much weaknesses revealed even after 18 years. Life is a journey, not a destination."
Ling Siew Woei


INGATAN SELEPAS MENANG

DIALOG DGN IBU TANPA PENTAS , ROSTRUM & PEMBESAR SUARA


Mak aku cakap,
"Aku doakan kamu jadi manusia yg berguna utk masyarakat." Aku prasan bijak-pandai menjawab,
"Napalah mak tak doakan saya jadi kaya raya je mak oii?" Mak aku jawab,
"Sebab aku taknak kamu jadi orang yg tamak dan tak reti bersyukur." Aku jawab,
"Wa caya lu, mak. Kasi calit sikit!" #tanambelas

THE FUTURE, 20 YEARS AGO (Part 2)


"I remember answering questions fielded from reputable artists questioning whether we could call this as 'art'. What is art anyway if not a reflection of life, who we are and what we believe in? We were only in our second/third year into our degree during this exhibition in Petronas Gallery. The opportunities to learn about life was always given to us. To me that was the real-deal. It is an honour to be part of this pioneering group in UNIMAS and even more an honour to be a student of you and Prof Madya Fauzan Omar, and of course the great Niranjan Rajah ;)"
Helena Song




THE FUTURE, 20 YEARS AGO


Ling Siew Woei, the fine art program at UNIMAS, especially the inclusion of electronic art in the curriculum, was a respond to ICT implosion, as initiated and advocated by Tun then (1990s). We were specifically requested to design a fine art curriculum that would also equip students with ICT know-how. Designing UNIMAS Fine Art curriculum, establishing a new program (kebun) with a new mindset then (together with my guru Fauzan Omar, Niranjan Rajah, Zulkarnain Zainal Abidin, Rashidah Salam, Wan Jamarul Imran) was amongst the most challenging, yet exciting and memorable periods of my career. Tq for bringing this up. It lighted my day.

THE FUTURE IN REAR-VIEW

In case we got carried away by whatever drama of the day, Ramadhan is also a good month to re-visit, re-view, and re-evaluate. 

Back in 1994-2003, I used to b engaged whole-heartedly in envisioning 'the future' for Malaysia. During that period of time, I was involved in designing and establishing several new art programs at UNIMAS, CENFAD & USM. I saw myself then as 'golongan muda'. 

Now, Im not so sure whether I have arrived at that 'future' . The future is 'now', and I my 'now' is probably different than the one I imagined 20 years ago. 

What about you, especially those often referred to as 'golongan muda'? Whats your now? How do you choose, define and create your now? Blaming others? Pointing fingers? Complaining? Cursing? Throlling? Cyber-bullying? Gossiping? Focusing on problems instead of solutions? Highlighting issues instead of facing and tackling them? 

What you focus on now is what your future going to b. Please la, choose wisely.
