Tattoo

Tattoo memang sudah dikenal sejak ribuan tahun lalu. Orang-orang Mentawai di Sumatera dan suku Dayak di Kalimantan juga terbiasa membuat tattoo di tubuh mereka. Namun hal itu bukanlah menjadi ukuran dan sumber hukum bagi seseorang yang sudah memiliki ajaran agama yang dipercayainya. Saat agamanya melarang untuk membuat tattoo dan ia mempercayai larangan itu demi kebaikannya sendiri, maka tak perlu lagi gamang untuk menaatinya.

Agama sangat menghargai tubuh manusia. Tindakan yang menyakiti dan merusak tubuh sangat dilarang, kecuali dalam kondisi tertentu seperti untuk pengobatan. Tubuh manusia merupakan ciptaan Tuhan yang harus dijaga dan dipelihara. Tubuh manusia sudah indah tanpa harus diberi tatto. Di sisi lain, manusia memang merupakan ciptaan Tuhan yang terbaik di antara ciptaan-ciptaaan-Nya yang lain. Baca lebih lanjut

Saat Konsep Pernikahan Digugat

Penelope-Cruz15Konsep pernikahan ternyata mulai digugat oleh sebagian orang. Apalagi di tengah masyarakat modern, angka perceraian justru semakin tinggi. Menurut data pada tahun 2002 yang dilansir www.divorcemag.com, Swedia merupakan negara tertinggi angka perceraiannya, yaitu sebesar 54,9 % dari jumlah pernikahan. Amerika Serikat menempati urutan ketujuh dari 46 negara yang disurvei dengan angka perceraian sebesar 45,8 %. Sedangkan India menduduki urutan paling buncit dengan angka sebesar 1,1 %. Data perceraian di Indonesia sendiri belum tersedia dalam Badan Pusat Statistik (BPS).

Tingginya angka perceraian di negara-negara Barat tersebut, tampaknya membuat sebagian orang menjadi takut, bahkan tidak mau untuk menikah. Salah satu orang yang tidak mau menikah adalah artis cantik Hollywood asal Spanyol, Penelope Cruz (35), yang pernah menyabet piala Oscar sebagai aktris pemeran pembantu terbaik dalam film Vicky Christina Barcelona (2008). Seperti ditulis dalam www.contactmusic.com, sang artis berujar, “Aku ingin punya anak suatu hari nanti, tapi bukan saat ini. Dan saat itu terjadi, aku ingin melakukannya dengan baik. Aku ingin hal itu menjadi pekerjaan terbaik dalam hidupku. Aku mungkin tak percaya pada pernikahan, tapi aku percaya pada konsep keluarga, cinta, dan anak-anak.” Padahal saat ini Cruz sedang menjalin hubungan asmara dengan, Javier Bardem (40), aktor yang juga asal Spanyol dan peraih penghargaan Oscar sebagai aktor pemeran pembantu terbaik dalam film No Country for Old Men pada tahun 2007.

Bold and Beautiful

How many beautiful women and handsome men. But who can guarantee the beautiful women and handsome men also have a heart and good behavior? Even often beautiful women and handsome men are like the sweet fruit outside but no worm in it. Because of that, and not any beautiful women and men nan nan stacked so that a suitable partner for those who admire and are interested in it.
Physically, Jennifer Lopez is beautiful. Perhaps there are people who do not reject it. Physically, Brad Pitt also very handsome. However, let us think more. Often we admire the physical beauty of a person because we actually do not really know more details and closer to the people. We know only through television, tabloids, magazines and other mass media. There is a far distance between ourselves with objects that our people admire physical beauty. There are the make-up, camera angle, landing style, and others that make someone appear beautiful or handsome. Even he may just not the environment we imagine.
Because we know more in less of the people we admire the beauty of the physical, so we do not even know the negative things that also are owned by people we admire it. Perhaps only a Luna Maya, for example, does not appear to be beautiful if he sleeps with a new face creased without make up and hair is untidy. Similarly, a Tora Sudiro may not appear to be stacked in the eyes when we know he is drunk stagger away in the fall of a dirty drain.
Assessment of beauty or handsomeness someone also associated with inner beauty and behavior. In other languages, there is inner beauty. Therefore, many people, including me, also no longer considered “beautiful” to the Siti Nurhaliza when she “seize” the husband. While physical beauty is not complemented by the beauty and behavior, then it is time, the physical beauty become less meaningful. Physical beauty is not more of a temptation for those who toil mengaguminya. Beauty of a Astri Ivo using closed clothes and never heard problematic in the household, about 180 degrees different with the beauty of a Pamela Anderson that interfaces dent body and the shattered house. A beauty that is calm, beauty is the only cause anxiety because of her sexual appeal.
On the other hand, a beauty or handsomeness admire other people, it should also be aware that not necessarily admired people who really fit with himself. Someone should have to learn to receive what the spouse who is supporting himself. We may partner is not as beautiful or handsome artist that we admire. However, we have really experienced and feel the love, goodness, love and our partner for this. While the people we admire beauty is not necessarily as it’s now.
So let, we learn to accept what the conditions with our partner for this. Javanese people say it with the term nrimo. Arabs say it qana’ah. Nothing beautiful women if he interfaces beauty to every man with a flirtatious behavior. There is no loyalty in love that he hold tight. Nothing that handsome man if he himself only utilize the smartness to hurt many women’s hearts. He spread a lot of love for the cast to many women.
