"Hanya Aku Dengan Tuhanku"

There is Always Hope

The Holy Master, we are told, would go into the forest whenever faced with a difficult task. He would light a fire, say a prayer, and what he had set out to perform was done.

In the next generation, his disciple, could no longer remembered how to light the fire, but he did know the place to go and the prayer to utter.

The third generation could neither light the fire nor say the prayer, but it could still find the sacred place in the forest.

All generations since cannot even do that. What then can we, do? We can tell the story of how it was done...

and that will be sufficient.

Terima Kasih, Nadzrin - jd

lately i consider ,
many a mythology use this same template to pass on a virtue/lesson or a moral to the common man.
till a point where we meet a peer or a guru who is willing to take him as a student , many souls worship the story and story teller but miss the essence of the story.
challenging any belief system is not my intention, but i think a second look make you wonder what you were missing.
point us to the right direction.
