Seringkali, banyak yang ingin diceritakan justru menghasilkan tak satu pun cerita. Setidaknya itu terjadi pada seorang saya, berkali-kali, dan terkadang memang menyebalkan, seperti sekarang.
Tapi ya sudahlah ya, dinikmati saja. Dan untuk postingan kali ini, saya hanya ingin menuliskan kembali, salah satu penggalan dalam buku the Alchemist yang saya ambil dari sini. Membacanya kembali membuat saya ‘nyengir’ berulang kali, malu hati ceritanya, karena masih saja merasa takut-kecewa-gagal-sedih-sakit hati bla bla bla. Padahal itu mah cuma perasaan saja, yang memang selalu lebay berlebihan.
Ah, kebanyakan basa basi, maafkan ya temans 😉 Sok silahkan dinikmati saja tulisannya om Coelho ini 😀
“Why do we have to listen to our hearts?” the boy asked, when they had made camp that day.
“Because, wherever your heart is, that is where you’ll find your treasure.”
“But my heart is agitated,” the boy said. “It has its dreams, it gets emotional, and it’s become passionate over a woman of the desert. It asks things of me, and it keeps me from sleeping many nights, when I’m thinking about her.”
“Well, that’s good. Your heart is alive. Keep listening to what it has to say.”
“My heart is a traitor,” the boy said to the alchemist, when they had paused to rest the horses. “It doesn’t want me to go on.”
“That makes sense. Naturally it’s afraid that, in pursuing your dream, you might lose everything you’ve won.”
“Well, then, why should I listen to my heart?”
“Because you will never again be able to keep it quiet. ”
“You mean I should listen, even if it’s treasonous?”
“Treason is a blow that comes unexpectedly. If you know your heart well, it will never be able to do that to you. Because you’ll know its dreams and wishes, and will know how to deal with them.
“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”
Got the point on the bold one? Have a brave life then, Pals ^^
