Lets Make Some Ripples !

2 minggu yg lalu saya pergi ke sebuah private library. Kecil sih, tp cozy bgt tempatnya. Banyak buku luar, literatur2 keren (akhirnya ketemu jg sama tempat ginian di surabaya hehe)

Saya membaca beberapa buku, icon photography, seni jalanan Jogja ( bikin kangen Jogja lg ), buku-buku tentang pop-up, dan terakhir saya berhenti pada sebuah komik luar. English, but its not really difficult to understand. Sayang saya lupa judul dan pengarangnya. Gambarnya simpel, tp framenya cukup beruntut menggambarkan adegan per detik. Di salah satu halaman, saya tertarik pada sebuah percakapan antara gadis dan orang asing yg bertemu di sebuah jembatan. Gadis itu berkata,

Most people think of karma as this short running score. Good actions are additive, bad actions are substractive. And your subtotal at one life’s end determines wether u’ll be reincarnated on a higher or lower rung in the next. The object being to get to the top of the leader. But as i understand it, any action, good or bad, is like a ripple you make in the world and the real goal is not to make any ripples. To begin and end with subtotal ofย  zero.”

Sebuah tulisan yg tak ringan di sebuah buku bacaan ringan seperti komik. Begitukah hidup ? Not to make any ripples.. ?

Menurut saya hidup tak seperti itu. Apa menariknya air yg tenang ? No challenge, no story..

Memang tak enak saat ada hal yg tak baik, subctractive.. tp itulah saat kita belajar. Beberapa waktu memang hidup saya sangat tidak nyaman. Mengurangi apapun yg ada, mood, spirit, smile, focus, happiness. Saat ada hal baik, semua hal terasa sangat baik-baik saja. Bahkan menambah apapun yg ada, its additive.

Hidup tanpa emosi itu hambar. Saya, kamu, mereka, kita butuh emosi, butuh cerita, butuh pengalaman, butuh pembelajaran. Additive, substractive, lets make some ripples. Hidup tenang tanpa gangguan itu bukan berarti hidup yg berkualitas. Bukankah ombak laut lebih indah daripada air yg menggenang ??
