From the Blade Runner Movie

So what's the correlation between Blade Runner and Minimalism?

If you have seen the movie, it shows you about a robot who wants to have a heart. Who wants to feel, like human. Desired, wanted, and born.

His wish is so simple. In his advance world of technology, he wants emotion. A touch, a smile, a pleasing word. He had everything, and yet it's not enough because he needs affection. Then he started to hearing from another robot. An Artificial Intelligence built who whispered about everything he wants to hear. Even though its calming, it is not exist.

Blade Runner doesn't try to save the world. But it saves the tiniest part of the world who can make huge impacts: EGO.

And that's when I found a link with minimalism. From the perfection of Ryan Gosling's act, I concluded that the more we grateful for who we are, the happier we are. We don't have to seek the answer of our existence, even if the movie said 'people sleep better when they know who they are'.

Maybe we've lost a family and ask why.
Maybe one never knew who his/her father was, and ask why.
Maybe one never knew where is his/her origin and ask why.

All these questions, leads to anxiety. People are craving for answer instead of enjoying the minutes. Keep on asking and never got a reply.

The moment we accept who we are as we are, the moment we freed our soul from clutter that weighing us down.

It's okay to keep asking and finding the truth. But to ask without work on it, (go on a journey, collecting the clues and all), will only lead to sleep deprivation. You say you want to sleep better but keep on bothering your head with things you dont know how to find.

Minimalism is also acceptance. As what we are now, and what we have now.

Let me share you the example, about the definition of the life I dream.

I told you before about defining the goals first before taking the steps, right?

And here is a few of mine that I have successfully decode for the last couple of month;

I want to live the life which I can..

Have time for my own. In every day I have, I need time to invest for my future, praying is one of it. Reading, maybe I can use some tea and book in the afternoon before its dark.

I need to see the sunsets at least three times a week. Which means, I can't get trapped in the office for too long, no matter whether I still working nine to five or not.

Feel secure for my self, either its financially and socially. I need peaceful life from the neighbourhood, the families, whatever surrounding me. Want to feel wanted, and desired. Just like Joe.

Maybe there is more, but I still can't put it in the list because I'm not quite sure yet.

Its all simple things. And not including material or whatever. Because in the end, all we need is the comfort at heart. To have peace, and to leave in grace.

***

I had this one thing I wish I could have later..

The ability to look at someone's eyes, when those eyes, is everything I love in this world. Because for now, I couldn't make a contact when I talk to the eyes I admire. Why? Because they aren't mine.

Travel Through Time to Raijua

Menuju Raijua.. bahkan perjalanannya adalah petualangan tersendiri. Kamu harus terbang ke Kota Kupang (atau Waingapu), tapi saya memilih Kupang, lalu berlayar dengan kapal cepat selama 5-7 jam untuk menuju Pulau Sabu. Sebenarnya ada beberapa pilihan untuk ke Pulau Sabu dari Kupang, yaitu dengan naik pesawat Susi Air selama kurang lebih 55 menit dengan harga sekitar 1,3 juta, atau naik kapal Ferry lambat dengan waktu tempuh selama 12-13 jam seharga Rp 80 - 120rb per orang, atau naik kapal Ferry cepat yang berangkatnya malam dan sampai di Pulau Sabu pagi (jadi kurang lebih 8 jam juga). Kapal cepat harganya berkisar di 200rb-an, saya sendiri memilih naik kapal Cantika Express kelas VIP seharga Rp 262 ribu. Di dalam kelas VIP Kapal Express Cantika, tapi jendelanya terlalu tinggi untuk bisa duduk lihat laut Tenang, ada jaket keselamatan. Tadinya saya mau bawa sendiri karena takut menyeberang selama tujuh jam. Tapi rupanya yang harus lebih dikhawatirkan itu menyeberang dua jam

Definisi orang baik, dari alm Sri Wahyuningsih Djangko

"Mims, ngana kita mo tarek jadi informasi wa.. ( Mim, kamu aku rekrut jadi bagian informasi ya)" ujarnya suatu hari. Kalimat tersebut menjadi awal dari pengalaman kelas sebelas ku yang penuh dengan kesibukan non-akademis. Berorganisasi di OP (Organisasi Pelajar, atau OSIS) sambil berjibaku dengan lomba-lomba debat bersama klub debat. Entah apa yang membuatnya menarikku sebagai anggotanya di Sekbid Informasi, tapi yang jelas ku bersyukur sekali bisa dipilih sebagai partnernya. "Yuk, torang baku pangge apa e? Dorang bahasa so baku pangge 'aner' ... ( Yuk, nama panggilan kita apa nih, anak sekbid bahasa sudah punya panggilan sendiri yaitu 'aner' )" kataku di hari yang lain jauh setelah pelantikan. Dari situ tercetus lah nama Parti alias Partner-Informasi. Aku panggil dia dengan Parti, dia panggil ku pun dengan Parti. Panggilan itu bertahan hingga dua belas tahun kemudian, sampai akhir hayatnya. *** Namanya Yayuk, orang kenalnya dengan nama Yayuk

Pagar Batu dan Rumah Orang Raijua

P ertama kali menjejakkan kaki di Raijua, saya diajak oleh Pak Jesri (Kepala Desa Bellu) untuk ikut mengantar semen naik truk kecamatan ke sisi lain Raijua. Mereka sedang dalam program pembangunan jalan yang didanai oleh pemerintah. Kata Basa (kawan yang setahun tinggal di Raijua untuk Indonesia Mengajar), jalan itu nantinya akan menghubungkan area penghasil rumput laut untuk memudahkan pengangkutan. Kalau di Raijua, mereka menyebut rumput laut sebagai 'agar'. Saat berkeliling dengan truk itulah saya bisa melihat langsung separuh Raijua, yang didominasi perbukitan dan bebatuan. Saya jatuh cinta pada pandangan pertama terhadap pagar-pagar batu yang ditumpuk rapi dan mengelilingi tanah-tanah masyarakat yang luas. Ada juga bukit-bukit yang ditengahnya terdapat pagar batu membuat garis lurus memanjang, seolah membagi bukit tersebut menjadi dua bagian. Jika ada terasering di bukit yang curam, maka setiap undakannya pasti disangga dengan batu-batu yang ditumpuk rapi. Rasanya sepert
