Bismillah and Alhamdulillah

Paediatric, Psychiatry, Obstetric and Gynaecology, and Public Health examination were officially ended .....Hence, results were out too..... There's no need of closure ceremony, enough for a huge sigh , suffice for the saying of Alhamdullillah.. Hope many of us celebrated the day with Sujud Syukur and Solat Syukur. Early 09 till Oct 09- a period of tiring and tears. Am i? Nothing much to share but just a bit of reminder to myself and everyone about the value of looking down once you are at the top. I have experienced being at the lowermost part of the circle, life is a circle isn't it? It was a great despair over a destined subject , yet people did lose the sense of being. We can't afford to be at the top all the time because if it were to be so, the synonym to that is stagnant and no generativity. Somehow, i agree with Erikson's Stages of human development; he mentioned that humans pass through the series of major crises as they go through the life cycle....From infancy up to late adulthood , the psychosocial crises seem to be very signifant, very practical but a bit pathetic. ...Middle adulthood with the range of age from 40-65, it should be generativity rather than stagnation.. Though he referred to something related to building generation , other interpretation might be acceptable. Generativity can be anything. Generate your knowledge, your attitude, behaviour et cetera. Anyhow, Erikson's theory does give sense.
No opposition! Erikson's did not talk about arrogant neither talk about humility.

“And give glad tidings to the humble. Those whose hearts, when Allah is mentioned, are filled with fear, who show patient perseverance over their afflictions, keep up regular prayer, andspend (in charity) out of what We have bestowed upon them.” [ Quran 22:35]

One blissful morning, i heard birds chirping, very loud .......Looked around and saw a small brownish bird had flown in through the window. He knew the way in but forgot the way out. The bird was in my room but i felt that he was so indifferent. I wanted to let him there, at least letting a natural music on, perhaps a zikr but thinking of the possibility of illness spread by that species, i made a move. Chasing him away, did not mean to be mean but just to give a meaning to something called bird. Pity bird flew so high looking for way out, never bothered about lowering the height of flying, never tried to use the bright and shiny morning as a guide. Nothing.

Me too, hopeless! Finally we both managed, own's target achieved. The bird taught me a lesson. Not need to teach me through chalk and blackboard, enough via the nature of self.......
We can fly higher and higher, but at one point in our life, do look down , do fly down....Because you may find your WAY by just flying down...

p/s: Hopefully, that bird is not blind....
