Life to Share

 Alhamdulillah.

Hari Minggu kemarin, tanggal 14 Februari 2021 dapat menyempatkan diri untuk share tentang PhD di UK. Alhamdulillah bisa berbagi dengan teman-teman yang ingin melanjutkan PhD. Banyak hal-hal yang ingin saya share di mana hal itu cuman bisa dirasakan ketika sudah menjalankan PhD Kalau baca di buku, atau di artikel, biasanya itu gak ada atau memang gak kelihatan.

Nah tacit knowledge ini (thanks to Saska) yang diperlukan sebenarnya oleh kami-kami ini. Saya pun merasa ini hal yang diperlukan, karena sebelum saya menjalankan PhD saya belum dapat menemukan hal seperti ini. Jadi saya harap hal ini bisa membantu yang lain.

Ada hal-hal yang bisa saya rasakan ketika sudah PhD, jalan berpikir, memandang sesuatu akan lebih berbeda. Dan yang terutama adalah PhD itu journey to become humble. Humble ini didapat karena kita sadar kalau kita gak sempurna, tulisan kita gak sempurna, PhD kita gak sempurna, riset kita gak sempurna, tulisan kita pun gak sempurna.

In sha Allah siap membantu yang ingin melanjutkan PhD nya. 

Tolong beri saya kekuatan dan kesehatan yang sempurna untuk dapat memberikan lebih untuk orang lain ya Allah Yaa Rahmaan Yaa Rahiim.

Reinventing My Memory!

Alhamdulillah..

Barusan saja handphone update, dan spotify hilang saja dong. Account hilang dan password juga, mandiri juga. Akhirnya spotify 'langganan' lagi, kalau mandiri bisa diakalin pakai sms kirim ke +62213355. Soalnya kalau kirim dari sini 3355 gak kekirim.

Jadi ceritanya mulai dengerin lagu coldplay lagi. Entah kenapa lagu Coldplay dengan aroma Britishnya yang kental bikin pikiran ini kembali ke 12 tahun yang lalu, waktu pertama kali merambah di Newcastle, UK. Good time and learned a lot. Pengen rasanya mengulang lagi masa perjuangan itu. Kerja di restoran, ngerjain tugas di library sampai pagi, begitu terus sampai lulus. Padahal waktu di sana bawaannya pengen pulang Indo, nah di Indo pengen balik lagi ke sana.

Sampai tahun 2013 alhamdulilah dapat kesempatan lagi untuk belajar lagi di sana sampai 2017. Alhamdulillah. Perjuangan yang luar biasa. Sangat bersyukur semua pencapaian dan perjalanan yang ada.

Sampai tahun 2019-sekarang tinggal di Malaysia, yang alhamdulillahnya so far is all right. Memang pas sekali ada pandemi. Terus terang ini menganggu sedikit, sempat bolak balik le dokterz diendosokopi colonoscopy, x ray dll. Alhamdulillah so far so good. Ternyata pikiran dan mental. Sempat dialog beberapa kali dengan dialog sampai habis kontraknya.

Nah keinget waktu di NCL, menulis blog atau jurnal bisa jadi membantu penguatan mental. Kita hide comment karena memang saat ini cuma perlu meluapkan dan feedback kurang diperlukan. Kadang kita cuman pengen meluapkan unek2. Dan the best thinf about writing is, kita bisa turn over ke cerita yang lebih positif.

Sejak awal memang saya maksakan supaya setiap keluh kesah yang dituangkan ke dalam blog ini dijadikan positif. Karena apa? Karena semua ada positifnya dan bagaimana cara mengambil positifnya? Perlu dilatih dan itu bertahap caranya.

Saya sekarang kembali belajar untuk bisa lebih 'cerdik' melihat dari perspektif yang, which is positive!

Wish me luck please. Please show me Your Guidance ya Allah Yaa Rahmaan Yaa Rahiim!

Berserah Diri

Alhamdulillah baru beres buka puasa. Lanjut maghrib dan jamaah sama anak istri. Alhamdulillah.

Memang beberapa kali masih ngerasain sakit di dada sama punggung. Alhamdulillah masih bisa ikutin cara yang diajarin Rasulullah lewat Dr Zaidul Akbar.

Jadi beberapa waktu lalu sempat endoskopi dan colonoscopy untuk cek aja. Alhamdulillah hasilnya bagus, ada gerd, parangritis sama batu empedu terlihat. Alhamdulillah so far so good. Semua oke masih.

Batu empedu pakai metoda yang diajarin Prof Roni  pakai apel, olive oil, garam inggris dan jus lemon. 

Setahun lalu sempat sakit dan susah nafas, sudah x Ray juga alhamdulillah aman. In sha Allah Allah Yang Maha Penyembuh. Berusaha hidup sehat, ibadah dan berserah diri sama Allah.

Bismillah

Worriness

Kuatir! Sering kali saya merasa kuatir sama hal yang sebenarnya gak perlu. Kadang saya berpikir terlalu dalam atas segala sesuatu.

Jadi ketika melihat berita negatif, kebayang. Ada orang sakit apa, kebayang. Ada pengumuman yang kena covid 19, bingung.

Saya gak tahu kenapa itu terjadi, tapi itu yang saya pikirkan, terus dan mendalam malah kadang sampai gak bisa tidur.

Sebagai tambahan, ketika merasakan sesuatu, contohnya ada sakit atau apa, cari di google. Nah jrengnya adalah ketika di Google semua kemungkinan pasti disebutin, dan you know what, kemungkinan terburuklah yang dipikirkan. Bukan begitu bukan?

Akhirnya berusaha kembalikan lagi ke Allah, badan kita, pikiran kita, jiwa kita, semuanya milik Allah. Kota cuman berusaha menjaganya dan merawatnya. Dan caranya memang sudah disyariatkan di Al Quran dan As Sunnah. Sekarang cara hidup sehat dan makan sehat ada di youtube banyak. Cara-cara Rasulullah SAW supaya sehat.

Kalau pikiran kacau, paling enak baca Al Quran sie. Karena Allah janji kalau Al Quran itu sebagai obat. Jadi kita bisa tagih janji Allah dari situ. In sha Allah kita semua selalu dalam keadaan sehat dan baik. Amiinn.

Walahualam

Find a Meaning as a PhD and an Industrialist

There is no word that can describe how grateful I am to have a PhD and working abroad in the aviation industry.

It has crossed my mind when I was watching mas Yanuar's Nalar on Eps.26.
I told my wife that I feel undermine and desperate for my work. However, these videos gave me a deep insight and force me to look at another answer.

After careful thought and listening to Mas Yan's video, I do understand that there is a good reason I am doing my current job. I could not compare my work to the others, as I have different role and expertise compare to my colleagues.

Currently, I am handling a project to make a learning content, which is in digital form. I am sure that my work also holds importance in the digital transformation role. I do understand that it depends on the 'man behind the gun', not on the gun itself. I am sure that this digital learning will be useful to the society and community because most of the technology has to be human interfered. People who use that has to understand and has to be able to do it. No matter what they do, no matter what cutting-edge machine that we have, the human need to be there and need to be able to interfere for the greater good.

So, in sha Allah my work will be beneficial and useful for all the people, society, In sha Allah.

Hollistic Approach as a Human

 Yesterday I had a discussion about Methapysic and Healthiness of a Human being, like us.

I have this complaint about my pain in my chest, and then stomach aches as well. I went to the doctor, and they said I am all right. Then, we came up with so-called metaphysic disruption. I could not agree more with him, as it can also the catalyst of the pain. I agree with him.

In addition to that, I do also see the human being itself who maybe being careless about his/her health. As for example, how was my lifestyle and what did I eat, all of them are connecting. Both Physically and Mentally, and we add another perspective, Metaphysically.

The most important logic that we could summarise is that all of these things are can be controlled by the human being themselves. So, we need to pray or ibadat more to prevent ourselves from the metaphysically disrupted. Another one is the physical health, this health can be also be controlled and be monitored by doing few measurements, such as healthy food, do regular exercise or training, and the other as the mentally, we could have measurement such as meditation and so on.

The best thing as a Muslim is, they are mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah. I have learned that how to pray can both measures our mental and physical health. Then, fasting as well, it is a good measurement to our physical health. And these physical measurements also addressing the human being health as holistically. The peak of this practice is mental health and the iman to Allah.

That is what I understand, Wallahu Alam bi shawab.

Happiness

Hi All!

Happiness? Where is it?

I have found it that it is in my mind. Yes, only I can see my happiness and the other way around as well, you can only see your happiness by yourself.

Happiness will differ between one to another. I have happiness in the food, for example, or happy that my car is clean, or happy as I could solve my job's challenges, and so on.

As I read from an article, people with the longest age on the earth are happy. So, yeah, trying to find myself to be happy.

I was desperate in many times, my health, my work, my house, my family, my body, my mind, etc. But what it comes to be like a boomerang, makes me think more and consume my energy more, I think. I feel exhausted, I feel anxious, overwhelm and everything. I have tried a few things until I remember that I have a blog that can be useful. It is not only for me but also it could help people with the same problem as mine.

However, problems will be there based on our perception. Do we see it as a problem? or a challenge? Does it take our energy or the other way around, it could help us to grow? So be it!

I just remember the one I read from a novel, Hey Problem, I have Allah The Almighty! So that is one of the ways as well. I do believe that Allah has arranged everything for us. He set the best for us. All we have to do is to be patient.

If you feel unwell, always believe that our body is created with its capability to heal itself. And we do have Quran as it is promised as medicine for every illness. Rasulullah SAW also gave us an example to do Bekam, consume healthy food, and habitus sauda. What were the examples and the solutions? Yes, that is. I trust that the illness or something that happened in our body is caused by what we have done to our body. What did we eat, we drink, we think, and we have done. Please give me your guidance to keep my iman and do everything according to Your guidance.

Thinking about people? Do not worry, Allah created them as well. So what they have done and what they did to us means to be a way to redirect us to someone better. I wish I knew about this before, it is based on how we think. I do remember the secret, what will happen is all that we have thought before. So keep positive! In sha Allah, Allah loves people who keep positives.

To keep positives? Just hinder the negatives! that what I could suggest. I see many negatives that made me feel overwhelmed, but not anymore when I strict to myself to be more positives!
