“It’s a humaniverse.
Please look at the dark blue color in his head.
See it deeply.
See it with your heart.
Then you can see that
he has universe in his mind.
See it more deeply.
See it with your open mind
See it with your comscience.
Then you will agree with me that
he is not the part of the universe.
But, he is the universe…
.
We all have universe in our minds too.
So, we are the universe, just like him.
We are all the humaniverse.” .
. -Kanya Puspokusumo- .
.
====================
**Since I was a teenager, I somewhat believe that we, human, are not only a part of universe. The universe is not ‘a big space’ or ‘a place’ where human live.
The universe is not an ‘outsider’ that is created to support our existence or our desires.
The universe is something that exist with us, inside us. It exists and lives in our minds, our cells, our souls.
It will obey every of our ‘commands’ not because it is created to obey our commands.
But, it is because the universe and our minds is one.
Because the universe and our cells is one.
Because the universe and our souls is one.
Because the universe and us live in the same existence.
One inseparable existence.
Because the universe is us…
.
And the painting is my expression of my thoughts…

PARCAE

I grew up with books, stories, and knowledge about philosophy (from Western to Islamic philosophy), religions (from Buddhism to Islam), theology, and the world classic literatures and authors. One of my favourite stories since I was a child is about Parcae. The story ‘hypnotized’ me and made me want to know more about life, fate (fatum), and the Utmost Power in this universe.
.
Parcae (or Parca in singular form) are the three Goddesses in ancient Roman religion and mythology who set human’s destiny: birth – life – death; similar with Moirai/Moerae in Greek Mythology. The First Goddess has duty to entwine the gold thread which refers to somebody’s birth. The second Goddess has duty to bond the gold thread which refers to somebody’s life. The third Goddess has duty to cut the gold thread which refers to somebody’s death.
.
This painting is my expression about the story 😊😊😊

SOMETIMES, IT’S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY

The sky isn’t always blue,
the sun doesn’t always shine.
Sometimes you have the cheerful life,
Sometimes your life falls apart .
.
But don’t be scared,
you don’t need to pretend
that everything is #okay,
at least not to your self.
Because sometimes,
it’s okay not to be okay .
.
As a human,
you don’t have to be perfect all the time.
You can just be you,
with all of your ups and downs,
with all of your strengths and weaknesses.
Because sometimes,
it’s okay not to be okay.

One day you may want to put
your smile on your face,
to hide all the pain in your heart.
Or you may want to honestly show (at least to your best friends)
what you really feel inside.
There’s always a day
when you just want to be you,
without any masks,
and it’s okay.
Because sometimes,
it’s okay not to be okay.

Sometimes you may feel that
you want to cry.
So just cry if you must.
Because sometimes,
it’s okay not to be okay .
.
Sometimes life
gives you terrible wounds,
hurt you badly,
and drain you.
So just let it drain you,
pour out everything,
all those emotions bottled inside of you,
let your heart mourn.
Let it hurt until it hurts no more.
Because sometimes,
it’s okay not to be okay .
.
But after that,
don’t forget to regain your strength,
stand up again,
dry the tears,
pick up the pieces,
Live again.

After that,
don’t forget to find relief
by learning to let go
and learning to forgive,
at least to forgive yourself
and make a peace with your own soul. .
.
That’s the way I deal with
my problems and my life,
to survive
and keep living until now. .
.
That’s the way I deal with
my problems and my life,
and to keep the goodness
in my soul.

That’s also the way
I see you
And that’s the way
I want to love you
and to keep staying beside you
until my last breath…
.
For me,
you don’t have to be perfect all the time.
You can just be you
with all of your ups and down,
with all of your strengths and weaknesses.
Because I understand that sometimes,
it’s okay not to be okay.

SECRET GARDEN

“What happened when you were in coma?” a friend asked me in one fine morning.
“I lived somewhere, in a big luxurious house with a garden,” I answered.
“A garden?”
“Yes. The most beautiful garden I’d ever seen. A place where peace and true happiness were the only things I can feel.”
“Was that the heaven?”
“I don’t know where I was. But no, I don’t think that was the heaven… Maybe it was the place for coma people to re-think about their life, maybe it was the place for transit before we go to heaven (or hell), or maybe it was just the place to make a new life agreement with the universe… Hmm… Yes, I think I’ve signed a new contract there. I think I agreed to help more people on the earth with all efforts before I ‘completely’ die someday…”
“Oh…”
“Well, that was the place that can only be seen and lived by coma people. It was an indescribable place and feeling. Only coma people will understand. But here, I will draw what I feel about the garden. I always call it ‘the secret garden’…” 😊😊😊

HAPPINESS, LOVE, AND SINCERITY

I never search popularity.
To be honest, I never like being on TVs, magazines, newspapers, etc. like what happened now.
My happiness is not there.

My happiness always comes from simple things;
It is when my son says ‘I love you, mommy’ every morning.
That’s my happiness.

It is when I give a sincere smile to people and they smile back at me.
That’s my happiness.

It is when I help people and they don’t turn back to be the backstabber.
That’s my happiness.

It is when people can appreciate me for what I do for them and for what I am.
That’s my happiness.

It is when I could create a poem or painting with ‘my soul’ in it.
That’s my happiness.
And it is when I could love someone without fear of being betrayed.
That’s my happiness… .
.
My happiness is simple.
But, sometimes life is not that simple…
