  Rasulullah SAW dan Pengemis Yahudi Buta Di sudut pasar Madinah Al-Munawarah seorang pengemis Yahudi buta hari demi hari apabila ada orang yang mendekatinya ia selalu berkata "Wahai saudaraku jangan dekati Muhammad, dia itu orang gila, dia itu pembohong, dia itu tukang sihir, apabila kalian mendekatinya kalian akan dipengaruhinya". Setiap pagi Rasulullah SAW mendatanginya dengan membawa makanan, dan tanpa berkata sepatah kata pun Rasulullah SAW menyuapi makanan yang dibawanya kepada pengemis itu walaupun pengemis itu selalu berpesan agar tidak mendekati orang yang bernama Muhammad. Rasulullah SAW melakukannya hingga menjelang Beliau SAW wafat. Setelah kewafatan Rasulullah tidak ada lagi orang yang membawakan makanan setiap pagi kepada pengemis Yahudi buta itu. Suatu hari Abubakar r.a berkunjung ke rumah anaknya Aisyah r.ha. Beliau bertanya kepada anaknya, "anakku adakah sunnah kekasihku yang belum aku kerjakan", Aisyah r.ha menjawab pertanyaan ayahnya, "Wahai ayah engkau adalah seorang ahli sunnah hampir tidak ada satu sunnah pun yang belum ayah lakukan kecuali satu sunnah saja". "Apakah Itu?", tanya Abubakar r.a. Setiap pagi Rasulullah SAW selalu pergi ke ujung pasar dengan membawakan makanan untuk seorang pengemis Yahudi buta yang berada di sana", kata Aisyah r.ha. Ke esokan harinya Abubakar r.a. pergi ke pasar dengan membawa makanan untuk diberikannya kepada pengemis itu. Abubakar r.a mendatangi pengemis itu dan memberikan makanan itu kepada nya. Ketika Abubakar r.a. mulai menyuapinya, si pengemis marah sambil berteriak, "siapakah kamu ?". Abubakar r.a menjawab, "aku orang yang biasa". "Bukan !, engkau bukan orang yang biasa mendatangiku", jawab si pengemis buta itu. Apabila ia datang kepadaku tidak susah tangan ini memegang dan tidak susah mulut ini mengunyah. Orang yang biasa mendatangiku itu selalu menyuapiku, tapi terlebih dahulu dihaluskannya makanan tersebut dengan mulutnya setelah itu ia berikan pada ku dengan mulutnya sendiri", pengemis itu melanjutkan perkataannya. Abubakar r.a. tidak dapat menahan a

Subject: [sim] INFO : 10 Ciri Manusia Kreatif

 

Ada kebiasaan yang memperlambat berfikir, ada pula memperlancarnya. Roger
von Oech, lewat bukunya A Whack on Side of the Head, menjelaskan sepuluh
kebiasan manusia kreatif. Cuba sesuaikan dengan diri Anda, berapa yang sudah
dimiliki dan mana lagi yang perlu ditingkatkan.

1. Suka mencari jawaban kedua
Anda jangan hanya punya satu solusi yang berarti hanya punya satu pilihan.
Kreativiti meminta Anda menemukan jawaban kedua yang mungkin lebih tepat.



2. Suka berfikir lunak
Kreativiti adalah pengembangan hasil otak kiri yang bersikap keras terhadap
idea oleh otak kanan yang lunak yang mengabaikan batasan dan lunak terhadap
berbagai idea.

3. Suka menggugat aturan
Jika aturan telah membatasi pilihan maka Anda harus mencari sebab mengapa
suatu aturan dibuat. Mungkin alasan itu tidak relevan ada lagi. Mungkin
sekarang ada pemecahannya yang lebih efektif.

4. Suka mencuba kemustahilan
Jangan sekali pun pernah membuang idea sepintas yang kelihatan mustahil.
Merenungkan lagi idea yang muncul dapat memicu berbagai kemungkinan baru.

5. Toleran terhadap hal dilematis
Dalam kenyataan, sering idea kreatif lahir dari situasi dilematis. Adalah
jarang inovasi muncul dari pola fikir yang tunggal, linier
dan pasti.

6. Melihat kesalahan sebagai peluang
Ada orang yang suka mencari aman dan menghindari dari kemungkinan salah atau
gagal. Sesunggguhnya kesalahan justru menempatkan kita memperoleh hal yang
tak didapat bila melakukan dengan benar.

7. Suka humor dan santai
Memang idea kreatif muncul ketika terdesak situasi, tapi lebih banyak idea
brilian dan segar lahir dari suasana santai dan gembira. Saat kita santai
dan gembira pertahanan mental jadi longgar sehingga tidak peduli terhadap
aturan, hal mustahil maupun yang keliru.

8. Suka meninjau dunia luar
Orang yang sibuk melihat dunia dalamnya sendiri akan kehilangan banyak idea.
Meninjau dunia luar adalah wahana meraih idea baru untuk dunia dalam kita.

9. Berani berfikir beda
Umumnya orang berusaha menyesuaikan dengan budaya organisasinya. Padahal
tekanan organisasi boleh memasung kreativiti. Jadi, berani lah pro terhadap
hal yang tidak disetujui majoriti walau tidak harus terlalu terbuka.

10. Terbuka terhadap gagasan baru
Orang yang mengaku bukan orang yang kreatif berarti telah memasung diri
sendiri. Ingatlah, bahwa idea akan berkembang bila kita memberinya ruang.
Baik dengan tambahan dari luar diri Anda atau tidak menekan idea yang telah
dipunyai.

Do You Recognize These 10 Mental Blocks to Creative Thinking?

There is no spoon

Whether you're trying to solve a tough problem, start a business, get attention for that business or write an interesting article, creative thinking is crucial. The process boils down to changing your perspective and seeing things differently than you currently do.

People like to call this "thinking outside of the box," which is the wrong way to look at it. Just like Neo needed to understand that "there is no spoon" in the film The Matrix, you need to realize "there is no box" to step outside of.

You create your own imaginary boxes simply by living life and accepting certain things as "real" when they are just as illusory as the beliefs of a paranoid delusional. The difference is, enough people agree that certain man-made concepts are "real," so you're viewed as "normal." This is good for society overall, but it's that sort of unquestioning consensus that inhibits your natural creative abilities.

So, rather than looking for ways to inspire creativity, you should just realize the truth. You're already capable of creative thinking at all times, but you have to strip away the imaginary mental blocks (or boxes) that you've picked up along the way to wherever you are today.

I like to keep this list of 10 common ways we suppress our natural creative abilities nearby when I get stuck. It helps me realize that the barriers to a good idea are truly all in my head.

1. Trying to Find the "Right" Answer

One of the worst aspects of formal education is the focus on the correct answer to a particular question or problem. While this approach helps us function in society, it hurts creative thinking because real-life issues are ambiguous. There's often more than one "correct" answer, and the second one you come up with might be better than the first.

Many of the following mental blocks can be turned around to reveal ways to find more than one answer to any given problem. Try reframing the issue in several different ways in order to prompt different answers, and embrace answering inherently ambiguous questions in several different ways.

2. Logical Thinking

Not only is real life ambiguous, it's often illogical to the point of madness. While critical thinking skills based on logic are one of our main strengths in evaluating the feasibility of a creative idea, it's often the enemy of truly innovative thoughts in the first place.

One of the best ways to escape the constraints of your own logical mind is to think metaphorically. One of the reasons why metaphors work so well in communications is that we accept them as true without thinking about it. When you realize that "truth" is often symbolic, you'll often find that you are actually free to come up with alternatives.

3. Following Rules

One way to view creative thinking is to look at it as a destructive force. You're tearing away the often arbitrary rules that others have set for you, and asking either "why" or "why not" whenever confronted with the way "everyone" does things.

This is easier said than done, since people will often defend the rules they follow even in the face of evidence that the rule doesn't work. People love to celebrate rebels like Richard Branson, but few seem brave enough to emulate him. Quit worshipping rule breakers and start breaking some rules.

4. Being Practical

Like logic, practicality is hugely important when it comes to execution, but often stifles innovative ideas before they can properly blossom. Don't allow the editor into the same room with your inner artist.

Try not to evaluate the actual feasibility of an approach until you've allowed it to exist on its own for a bit. Spend time asking "what if" as often as possible, and simply allow your imagination to go where it wants. You might just find yourself discovering a crazy idea that's so insanely practical that no one's thought of it before.

5. Play is Not Work

Allowing your mind to be at play is perhaps the most effective way to stimulate creative thinking, and yet many people disassociate play from work. These days, the people who can come up with great ideas and solutions are the most economically rewarded, while worker bees are often employed for the benefit of the creative thinkers.

You've heard the expression "work hard and play hard." All you have to realize is that they're the same thing to a creative thinker.

6. That's Not My Job

In an era of hyper-specialization, it's those who happily explore completely unrelated areas of life and knowledge who best see that everything is related. This goes back to what ad man Carl Ally said about creative persons—they want to be know-it-alls.

Sure, you've got to know the specialized stuff in your field, but if you view yourself as an explorer rather than a highly-specialized cog in the machine, you'll run circles around the technical master in the success department.

7. Being a "Serious" Person

Most of what keeps us civilized boils down to conformity, consistency, shared values, and yes, thinking about things the same way everyone else does. There's nothing wrong with that necessarily, but if you can mentally accept that it's actually nothing more than groupthink that helps a society function, you can then give yourself permission to turn everything that's accepted upside down and shake out the illusions.

Leaders from Egyptian pharaohs to Chinese emperors and European royalty have consulted with fools, or court jesters, when faced with tough problems. The persona of the fool allowed the truth to be told, without the usual ramifications that might come with speaking blasphemy or challenging ingrained social conventions. Give yourself permission to be a fool and see things for what they really are.

8. Avoiding Ambiguity

We rationally realize that most every situation is ambiguous to some degree. And although dividing complex situations into black and white boxes can lead to disaster, we still do it. It's an innate characteristic of human psychology to desire certainty, but it's the creative thinker who rejects the false comfort of clarity when it's not really appropriate.

Ambiguity is your friend if you're looking to innovate. The fact that most people are uncomfortable exploring uncertainty gives you an advantage, as long as you can embrace ambiguity rather than run from it.

9. Being Wrong is Bad

We hate being wrong, and yet mistakes often teach us the most. Thomas Edison was wrong 1,800 times before getting the light bulb right. Edison's greatest strength was that he was not afraid to be wrong.

The best thing we do is learn from our mistakes, but we have to free ourselves to make mistakes in the first place. Just try out your ideas and see what happens, take what you learn, and try something else. Ask yourself, what's the worst that can happen if I'm wrong? You'll often find the benefits of being wrong greatly outweigh the ramifications.

10. I'm Not Creative

Denying your own creativity is like denying you're a human being. We're all limitlessly creative, but only to the extent that we realize that we create our own limits with the way we think. If you tell yourself you're not creative, it becomes true. Stop that.

In that sense, awakening your own creativity is similar to the path reported by those who seek spiritual enlightenment. You're already enlightened, just like you're already creative, but you have to strip away all of your delusions before you can see it. Acknowledge that you're inherently creative, and then start tearing down the other barriers you've allowed to be created in your mind.
