lebih kurang sebeginilah presentation yang saya sampaikan bertajuk “when you say nothing at all” semasa mengikuti sebuah kursus tentang presentation siang tadi. Secara halus, saya cuba mengajak para pendengar, yang majoritinya adalah non-muslim, untuk melihat perspektif hidup melalui jendela Islam. Semoga berjaya meninggalkan kesan. Saya masih menanti salinan vcd presentation saya yang dijanjikan. alhamdulillah, ada sedikit improvement dalam persembahan saya, namun masih banyak ruang-ruang perbaikan yang harus dilakukan. enjoy!
I dedicate this Ronan Keating song to all of you. Enjoy..
It’s amazing how you could speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you could light out the dark
The touch of your hand lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth in your eyes, saying you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand, says you’ll catch me wherever i fall
You say it best
When you say nothing at all
We are in an age, an era, where our society is shadowed, is clouded by sorrow. By fear. By unhappiness. We need something to light out our life. Some spark, that could straight away bring happiness and joy to the people, and end this bitter and sorrow environment. If you ask me, i’ll say that “that” spark that could light out the dark, is called “communication.”
Communication has played an important role in our life then, it is still playing a vital role now, and it shall keep on show its importance to our life tomorrow. No wonder huge communication companies such as Digi, such as maxis, such as Celcom, etc. Are in a war among each others. They are battling, competing to become the king of communication. The leader of all communication. Nevertheless, what people keep on forgetting is that the most essential, the most vital, the most powerful communication tool or medium, is not the handphone. No! Nor either the i-phone. Not also the internet, the GPS, and so on so forth. But, the most powerful communication tool lies within ourselves; that is the heart.
The heart is, as according to prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h), there is a part, where when the part is healthy, the part is okey, the whole body, our whole life will become fantastic. But when the part is damage or rotten, our whole body, our whole life shall be a misery, shall be a disappointment. That single part is, our heart!
So the key word out of this misery for our society is, by learning to communicate with our hearts. And communicating via our hearts, could be sum up into one miraculous key word: empathy! Why empathy? Because as the saying goes –which is becoming more popular day by day- “you don’t notice what you have, until it is gone!” So people nowadays are no longer seeking for sympathy, they are starving for empathy! No wonder, if you do a research, woman nowadays no longer feel attracted to those handsome, macho looking men. They are more searching for a man whom could understands them. Who could appreciate them. Who could fulfil their needs for empathy, so that you realize, you appreciate, you precious what you have now instead of letting it go without realizing how precious she was when you has her.
We have come to a stage where we should no longer just want to receive. But we need to give. We should not just want to be understood. We should start to understand. We should hold on tightly to this slogan: seek first to understand, then to be understood. Give, before you receive. Live for giving! Throw away all the “fish”, the selfishness inside of you. Coz if you look at the society around you, our Y-generation are starving for this: attention. Love. Empathy. So, empathize, my friend!
So just imagine the future generation that construct themselves with empathy, knowing that the best word, is just like what Ronan Keating sang in his song: you say it best….when you say nothing at all.
