A Meaningless Life

So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.

I knew he was right.

“Agak-agak awak lah kan, dalam dunia sekarang ni, apakah kemungkaran terbesar seseorang manusia tu,” tanya Ustaz Femes di suatu konferens riang, sebagai mukadimah pengisiannya.

Riuh rendah perbincangan. Ada yang kata couple, minum arak, clubbing, pergaulan bebas, berzina, buang anak, hisap dadah, merompak, membunuh, dan seterusnya.

“Mungkin betul, tapi itu cuma cabang-cabang kemungkaran. Kemungkaran utama ialah; bila seseorang tu tak tahu tujuan hidupnya”

Oh (?)

Bila tujuan kenapa Allah ciptakan kita tidak difahami, itulah punca ‘a meaningless life‘ (baca: hidup yang tak bermakna). Bila life mula rasa meaningless, mulalah buat macam-macam untuk konon-kononnya mengisi hidup yang semakin dirasakan bosan dan hambar. Lantas berlakulah cabang-cabang kemungkaran yang telah dinyatakan.

Adakalanya hari-hari yang berlalu sekadar dipenuhi rutin harian yang berulang, berulang, berulang, dan berulang… sampai… mati menghadap Tuhan. Erk?
