• Dalam Gelap

    Tidak jarang, mereka yang menghabiskan waktu untuk memberikan cahaya bagi orang lain justru tetap berada dalam kegelapan.

    --Mother Teresa--

  • Pahlawan

    Dan seorang Pahlawan adalah seorang yang mengundurkan diri untuk dilupakan seperti kita melupakan yang mati untuk revolusi.

    --Soe Hok Gie--

  • Apa Gunanya?

    Apa gunanya ilmu kalau tidak memperluas jiwa seseorang sehingga ia berlaku seperti samudera yang menampung sampah-sampah.

    Apa gunanya kepandaian kalau tidak memperbesar kepribadian seseorang sehingga ia makin sanggup memahami orang lain?

    --Emha Ainun Nadjib--

  • Pujian dan Hinaan

    "Aku puji dan hina diriku sendiri sebelum orang lain memuji dan menghina diriku,

    sehingga semoga baik pujian maupun hinaan mereka tak berpengaruh terhadapku.

    la yakhafu laumata laim wala yafrahu madhal madihin


  • Dunia | Akhirat

    Jika engkau melihat seseorang yang mengunggulimu dalam masalah dunia, maka ungguli dia dalam perkara akhirat.

nah... ini dia dibawah ini, yang terkait dengan personality seseorang, maaf.. gak ada waktu untuk menterjemaahkannya, jadi kalau ada yang tertarik untuk membacanya, siapa tau dapet informasi yang berguna.. diartiin sendiri aja ya :)


Lion's medicine includes brotherhood, letting go of stress, strong family ties, strength, courage, energy, self fulfilment, feminine energy, co-operation, community, Power of feminine energy, creativity, intuituion, imagination.

Creature of the Sun Lord, beloved of the Lady,
Reveal to me the ancient methods of magic.
Walk beside me as I grow in strength and courage.
Show me when to keep ties strong and when to break them.
Help me to understand the times for work and the times for rest.
Mighty lion, lend me your energies.

Lions reside in the Savannah's of Africa. The male looks regal with his mane, and hence they are also known as the king of the cats. The coarse grasses and scattered trees to be found there offer little protection from the outside world and make them a prime target for hunters. Lions are frequently spotted lying around not doing much. They seem to be radiating the words don't bother me ‘cause I’m busy relaxing - one reason why the energy of fearlessness has been linked to this proud animal. Mankind associates the lion with fearlessness because of its mighty roar. From the lion we can learn how to be fearless if we allow ourselves to relax long enough to learn from it.

Their is great myth and lore shrouding the lion. The Egyptians linked it to power and wealth. And also in ancient Egypt, a young lion symbolised the rising sun. So if Lion enters your life, you may experience your own true, radiant selves - your soul - rising to the surface. The Lion is the symbol of the sun and of gold, medieval alchemists associated Lion with sulphur. 

Lions are perhaps the most social of the big cats. They live in communities called prides., living together in harmony and hardly ever fight - although the male lions are very passionate and can become very jealous (ah bless!) of the females. They work as a team to kill their prey. Males roar to scare prey and force them towards the females, who wait patiently for the right time to attack. Not only do the females hunt and feed the pride, they are also the primary caretakers of the cubs. The males protect the group from predators, however they do not look for confrontation or attack unnecessarily. They only attack when challenged and will fight to the death. Really though, they prefer the peaceful and simple life. All adults are affectionate toward all the cubs, who live a playful and worry free existence.

The lion represents and means many things. Some of these things are family, cooperation, and community. Lion people need to understand that one's well-being is based on living and working in harmony with others, without giving up one's individuality. 

The key to the balance between self and others can be discovered in some of the well known symbols associated with the lion. First off they are the astrological animal related to the sign of Leo, which rules the heart. Leo is ruled by the Sun - another symbol of Lion. At the same time the sun blesses us with life giving warmth and light, the warmth of an open heart gives comfort to all who are touched by it. Coeur is the French word for heart, the root word for courage. Courage comes from the heart and from a deep sense of personal authority. 
When we have the courage to be true to ourselves, we will be empowered to act and live in ways true to our own soul - the true meaning of elf esteem, without any illusion. Not wearing a mask and having respect for oneself as well as others, such as not comparing oneself to others and lowering their worth in order to increase one's own value. Those who come from the heart and are able to relate well to others are capable of leadership, achievement as well as the type of success that inspires other to accomplish things.

Lion teaches us the magic of group energy and interaction, as well as the secrets of silence and patience. We must study ourselves deeply to know and understand ourselves - our strengths and weaknesses, and to wait for the right moment to act and take full advantage of a given situation. Learn the correct way to use power from lion. Always be centred and peaceful, but if need be, don’t be afraid to fight for the things you are interested in.

Lion presents lessons to be learned in dealing with groups and your role within those groups - work with others cooperatively. You have the ability to be a great leader but get a grip on that jealousy. Lion in your life means avoiding confrontations and being stealthy. Take the easy way to meet your goals - do not confront them head on. Trust your feminine energies – creativity, intuition and imagination. But don’t be afraid to roar if threatened.

For the Zunis of Turtle Island (Southwest United States), Cougar was the Master Hunter, known for its high intelligence, its knowledge of other animal and life forms, its physical prowess, its strength of will, and its intuitive ability. Cougar sees the maintenance of its territory as essential for its survival. Poshaiankia, the father of the Medicine Societies, designated Cougar the duty of carrying messages from humans to the higher spirits, because of this animal’s personal power, superior knowledge, strength of will, and steadfastness.
