Titik

“We have all had the experience of failing time after time in changing old habits. Then suddenly these old habits lose their hold on us. What was so attractive suddenly becomes unattractive. This is a sign that God has accepted our repentance. At this point, my sheikh used to say that we are no longer responsible for those old sins. We have truly changed and we are now someone who is not even tempted to commit them”.

Kita semua pernah mengalami gagal dan gagal lagi dalam menghentikan kebiasaan buruk. Hingga satu hari kebiasaan buruk ini tiba-tiba melepaskan cengkramannya pada diri kita. Apa yg sebelumnya terasa begitu menggoda tiba-tiba menjadi tidak menarik lagi. Ini adalah tanda bahwa Tuhan telah menerima Tobat dan penyesalan kita. Pada saat itu, guru spiritual saya berkata bahwa kita telah dimaafkan atas dosa-dosa masa lalu kita. Kita telah sungguh-sungguh berubah, kita bahkan sudah tidak tergoda lagi dan tidak ingin lagi melakukan kemaksiatan.
