A Pseudo Truth Caused by Shackle Conditioning’s Mind


A group of people have done a violence action towards another group which are gathering with peace purpose. The trigger is “fatwa”, instructions about a truth. Does this truth they believed is based on political opinion ending with power or based on honest and come out from conscience? A solution action by who has authority to solve this problem, even also catched in truth follows a certain frame. What is the truth actually? Do we far from the truth and catched in a pseudo truth shackle?

Medical science admits habits existence and special tendency in human self. Stimulus that is done repeatedly forms new nerve synaps in brain. A certain matter that is done repeatedly becomes a habit. Habit that is done repeatedly become a behaviour and even a character. After character has been formed, every problem that faced will be excecuted based on problem solving program from that character. A character is part of mind, an unconscious mind. A circuit of nerve synapses resulted from conditioning by parents, society, education, tradition, religion, and others have become to more permanent, stable and hard to change. In meditation language, this is called mind. Human is treated as a slave by shackle conditioning and is not free to express himself.

Meditation delivers us in spirit invention. Meditation practices will free human from conditioning that shackles the soul. Then, the remained are new synapses that are still unstable, appear and gone, called thoughts. Thoughts are always fresh. They are not stale like mind. With thoughts we can live in present.

For a greedy human, there is a culture that “it is still not enough”. The condition is equal to one who addicted by drug. Addicted to narcotics or to money, sex and others, the mechanism is the same: the dosage must increase. Property addict is exactly equal to narcotic drug addict. Violence addicted is also not far different.

Following the scientific, a truth that is taken by “fatwa” and is practised by force is come from conditioning mind. This behaviour is made and used by them who gets benefit. “Fatwa” is a conditioning mind for a person who believe it.

Following some expert, “fatwa” is basically a new Islam concept that comes later. At prophecy time, term “fatwa” technically never known. There is a famous Hadist, “istafti qalbak” (ask fatwa from your heart), this Hadist confirms a personal and individual “fatwa”, and is not projection of an institution.

After Islam Kingdom became greater, especially after enter the eight century, “Fatwa” began institutionalized and perfoming important roles. In islam history, often happened relation between religion and politics, between religious teacher and administrator. In ancient time, there is a normal agreement between religious teacher and administrator to streamline a “fatwa”.

Following some expert, un-brave society to take a decision and to wait for “fatwa” is a phenomenon of un-matured morality”. Asking about law to everything indicates that the society doesn’t dare to think themselves. They look at that law that is described in holy book, while human reasoning is not assumed as an obligatory law. Because people who is assumed as expert about religion text are religious teachers, so they always come to religious teachers to ask about every thing. If such happens , religious teachers quality is very important. How do religious teachers use the sound of inner hearts.

It is very important for human to develop high moral cognizance, deepen, and full responsibility. That can not happens unless society sharpen the inner hearts bloom robustly. Inner heart that will guide them. So that society can carry out famous Hadis, ” Istafti qalbaka” , Ask “Fatwa” in your inner self. Human is may not as a blind obedient.

Human must take a responsibility to all actions his done. Thinking, saying and acting have influenced the world, and it can not be returned the world like before the action. Truth that is believed must an inner truth, not conditioning truth. He is dwell at the heart inner who that believe in, not in mind. Conscience is where there is no shackle conditioning. Day of reckoning is certain, existence of action reaction is certain, and that certainty appears from instinct, intelegensia conscience, so that human introspect, restraining desire and the soul returns in a state of calm.
