A wise word to remember.



When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.
I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.
 
- I Wanted To Change The World; unknown Monk 1100 A.D.


I guess everyone have a little bit of 'I want to save the world' inside our heart, and I bet that`s one of the reasons why Allah put us here, on this planet. But I just want you to know that it`s okay if you only save one person, and it`s okay if that person is you.




Seandainya kita ingin mengubah hal-hal yang besar, maka berubahlah dari sekarang, dari hal yang terkecil, yang akhirnya nanti siapa tahu, mungkin boleh mencipta revolusi. Bung Karno pernah berkata bahawa seribu  orang tua hanya mampu bermimpi, tetapi satu orang pemuda dapat mengubah dunia. Namun andai kita hanya banyak menyesali nasib, ia tidak akan sedikit pun dapat mengubah keadaan. Dan mereka yang berusaha  untuk menyembuhkan diri sendiri pasti akan dapat menyembuhkan dunia. Andai kata kita masih belum mampu berbuat kebaikan atau menebar manfaat buat orang lain sekalipun, kemampuan mencegah diri sendiri daripada berbuat kejahatan atau kemungkaran itu sudah pun lebih daripada memadai. Dan jika telah sempurna sebahagian yang kecil itu, Allah pasti akan membuka hati kita untuk lebih menyempurnakan yang selebihnya.

Kita sebenarnya sudah terlalu tua untuk beribadah seperti kanak-kanak. Tapi tak mengapa, mula dari basic, jom!
