76. MENANGGALKAN SI 'AKU'

Murid:

Aku datang untuk mengabdimu.

Guru:

Seandainya engkau melepaskan si 'aku', pengabdian akan terjadi dengan sendirinya.

Engkau dapat merelakan semua harta bendamu bagi kaum miskin dan bahkan merelakan dirimu dibakar, namun belum tentu engkau mempunyai cinta sama sekali.

Simpanlah hartamu dan tinggalkan si 'aku'. Jangan membakar tubuhmu, bakarlah 'ego'mu! Cinta akan muncul dengan sendirinya.

(Burung Berkicau, Anthony de Mello SJ, Yayasan Cipta Loka Caraka, Cetakan 7, 1994)


Dengarkan lagu dari The Beatles ...

I Me Mine
The Beatles
Songwriters: George Harrison

All through' the day
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.

All through' the night
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.

Now they're frightened of leaving it
Ev'ryone's weaving it,
Coming on strong all the time,

All through' the day I me mine.
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine.

All I can hear
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.

Even those tears
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.

No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All through' the day I me mine.
I-I-me-me mine, I-I-me-me mine,
I-I-me-me…

All I can hear
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.
Even those tears
I me mine, I me mine, I me mine.

No-one's frightened of playing it
Ev'ryone's saying it,
Flowing more freely than wine,
All through' your life I me mine.
