Wondrous world

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

there are a lot of pleasures in this world,
but very few are happy.

a laughter subsides but the turmoil in the heart remains, constricting.

pleasure is a reaction (temporary)
whilst happiness is a condition (lasting)

the pleasures of this sensory world are merely:

the best of drink is water (the most common thing)
the highest food is the vomit of bees (honey)
the best scent is the mucus of gazelles (musk)
the best cloth is the excrement of worms (silk)
the highest pleasure is the meeting of two urinary tract (sexual intercourse)

that is what the world is
is this all there is to this world?
do you actually think this is the true path of happiness?
or are we merely deluding ourselves?

people who don't have knowledge will always pursue things that will lead to unhappiness.
forever chasing the means,
but never the end.

turn away from the means and seek the end.

ketawa yang seketika diiringi dengan jiwa yang bercelaru.

adapun nikmat di dunia ini adalah lima:

minuman yang paling elok ialah air (sesuatu yang sangat biasa)
makanan yang paling baik ialah muntah lebah (madu)
haruman yang paling semerbak ialah lendir kijang (kasturi)
pakaian yang paling selesa ialah najis ulat (sutera)
nikmat yang paling tinggi ialah pertemuan dua salur kencing manusia (jimak)

adakah ini dunia yang sebenar-benarnya?
adakah ini yang memberi kebahagiaan nyata?
ataupun sudah dipermainkan dan dilalaikan semata?

"لا حول ولاقوة إلا بالله"
