Karena kamu bukan robot.




Apa yang membedakan manusia dari hewan?
Manusia punya akal dan nurani. Namun, bila manusia hanya mengandalkan akal tanpa nurani ikut campur tangan, maka keputusan manusia akan serupa robot. 


Banyak peraturan diciptakan oleh manusia. Terkadang manusia amat memuja hitam diatas putih, padahal dunia dan isinya penuh dengan warna. Satu hal bisa punya beragam interpretasi dan makna.

Ingat tentang kasus seorang nenek yang mencuri bahan makanan di kebun suatu tuan sehingga harus didudukkan di meja persidangan? Ingat pula kah tentang kasus-kasus pasien di era lalu dimana beragam rumah sakit harus menolak pasien karena administrasi yang tidak tepat? Ingat kah tentang seorang paskibraka yang berbulan-bulan menyiapkan diri dan berlatih tiap terik tetapi hampir tidak boleh jadi paskibraka karena ia tak punya surat-surat yang menyatakan ia WNI?

Secara hitam dan putih, orang-orang itu salah. Secara tertulis dan peraturan, mereka harus dihukum. Namun, untungnya nurani masih punya gaungnya untuk menyelamatkan mereka. 

Apakah hakim tersebut jadi bersalah karena ia menyalahi peraturan?
Secara hitam dan putih, jelas ia menyalahi peraturan. Namun, lagi-lagi, hukum itu buatan manusia. Tidak ada kebenaran absolut tentangnya. Hukum senantiasa berubah, tetapi nurani bersifat kekal. 

Adakalanya, manusia harus menggunakan akal dengan dipadu nurani lebih baik. Untuk melihat dunia lebih dari hitam dan putih. Untuk mengaturulang kedua mata bahwa dunia ini sejujurnya penuh warna. Dan untuk menilik kembali bahwa tak semua kesalahan itu butuh hukuman. 


Diceritakan kembali dari catatan kuliah Bumi pada suatu kelas filsafat di sore hari.

Don't worry.



Yesterday I met a friend of mine from university back then. I was urgently needed some coffee and a person to talk to so I met my friend on some cafe near my campus on a good sunny afternoon. 

My friend said don't worry; I am gonna be okay and I will go through this little phase as an interesting yet suck journey of my life; My friend was insisted about it.

"Bro, you were the fuckin only person who did not have a single laptop nor  computer during our undergraduate university life! You were the only person that will submit several tasks by handwrite it down in papers meanwhile everyone who was sane and normal will type and print it. And you were frickin okay with it. So just keep going your peculiar way and beat again your obstacles."

I remember how freak I was during my university life. Did not have any single laptop or computer so I did write my tasks handwritten and use computer in my campus lab or warunginternet because I had none back then. 

I was not ashamed, it was an obstacle but it was a funny one.

Beginning of Seasons by Kevin Aditya

Dipersenda

This month is really hard for me. It's one of the lowest point of my life (so far). Some people will think it's ridiculous, but people are vulnerable to different things. And bad luck hits me on that weakest spot.

It hurts so bad and so sad to see one of your basic yet biggest dream failed at one time. It's like paint a soon-to-be-our-masterpiece but then the drawings got ripped or burned. Or having your crops destroyed by a flood in one time.

It feels like that. It hurts. So bad. So much.
At first sadness was covered me. I cried and I was angry at myself.
Then I feel depressed. Sadness makes me emotionally drained excessively, but depression isn't.
Depression consume me little by little, one step at a time.
Then it makes me loose interest of doing things. Things like create something, keep something, socialize and else.

I walk by these days. I still laugh in front of others. Try to manage a little sanity over myself, but then slow but sure, depression reminds me that you are not that sane.

About seniority

Never be too proud about being a senior.
Since everyone will eventually reach to that point.
It's just a matter of time,
so it's not a special thing.

The essential thing is
whether you are a good senior or the lesser one.

It's not about the years,
it's about how you treat yourself with some manners
and how you treat others with some respects.

Remember,
Never be too proud about being a senior.
