Pengusaha vs Petani

Suatu hari ada seorang pengusaha sedang pergi ke desa. Di desa ia berjumpa dengan seorang petani yang sedang tidur-tiduran. Karena penasaran pengusaha itu pun menghampiri petani itu.
‘Mengapa engkau tidak pergi membajak sawah?’ tanya usahawan itu.

‘Karena padi  yang kupanen telah menghasilkan cukup uang untuk makan hari ini,’ jawab petani.

‘Mengapa tidak kau menanam lagi?’ tanya usahawan.

‘Untuk apa?’ tanya petani

‘Engkau dapat mengumpulkan uang lebih banyak,’ jawabnya. ‘Dengan uang itu engkau dapat membeli kerbau sehingga kau tidak perlu mencangkul satu-satu. Kemudian engkau mempunyai cukup banyak uang untuk membeli traktor. Itu akan menghasilkan panen padi lebih banyak lagi, jadi juga uang lebih banyak lagi. Nah, segera uangmu cukup untuk membeli lahan lagi untuk ditanami. Lalu kau pun akan menjadi kaya seperti aku.’

‘Selanjutnya aku mesti berbuat apa?’ tanya petani lagi.

‘Selanjutnya kau bisa beristirahat dan menikmati hidup,’ kata si usahawan.

  • ‘Menurutmu, sekarang ini memang aku sedang berbuat apa?’ kata petani dengan puas.

Tercenganglah usahawan itu.

Kita seringkali dituntut atau berpikir bahwa kita harus belajar lebih rajin lagi agar mendapatkan nilai yang bagus. Dengan mendapatkan nilai yang bagus dan lulus ujian nanti kita akan bahagia. Tetapi setelah lulus ujian tidak membuat kita benar-benar bahagia, karena Sekarang kita harus belajar dengan keras selama 3 tahun lagi jauh lebih keras dari sebelumnya untuk gelar universitas.

Orang-orang menasehati kita agar menjauhi kesenangan, melainkan belajar saja dengan tekun. Mereka berkata betapa penting nya gelar sarjana dan jika kita berhasil maka ,nanti kita akan bahagia. Tetapi dalam kenyataannya orang-orang yang telah belajar dengan tekun dan meraih gelar sarjana. Sekarang mereka bahkan bekerja lebih keras lagi untuk pekerjaan pertama mereka.

Mereka bekerja demikian keras untuk menabung sejumlah uang untuk membeli mobil.
Mereka berkata “Saat tabungan saya cukup untuk membeli sebuah mobil, nanti saya akan bahagia.”

Ketika mereka sudah punya cukup dana dan telah membeli mobil pertama-nya, Mereka masih saja tidak bahagia. Sekarang mereka bekerja lebih keras untuk membeli sesuatu yang lain. dan setelah itu mereka akan bahagia. Atau mereka berjuan gigih dalam gelora percintaan, mencari teman hidup.

Mereka berkata kepada saya “Saat saya menikah dan sudah mapan, nanti saya akan bahagia.”

Begitu menikah, Mereka masih saja tidak bahagia. Mereka harus bekerja lebih keras lagi, bahkan mencari kerja sampingan untuk menabung cukup banyak untuk uang muka sebuah rumah kecil.
Mereka berkata “Saat, kami sudah punya rumah sendiri, nanti kami akan bahagia.”

Sayangnya membayar cicilan bulanan untuk rumah kredit berarti mereka masih tidak bahagia. Apalagi jika mereka akan berkeluarga. Mereka akan mempunyai anak-anak yang menghabiskan simpanan mereka. Dan mereka melipatgandakan kekhawatiran mereka. Sekarang mungkin perlu bertahun-tahun lagi untuk mencapai apa yang mereka inginkan, lalu mereka berkata
“Ketika anak-anak sudah besar, keluar dari rumah dan mandiri. Nanti kami akan bahagia.”

Saat anak-anak sudah keluar dari rumah, kebanyakan orang tua sudah memasuki masa-masa pensiun, lalu mereka terus menunda kebahagiaan mereka, bekerja keras untuk tabungan hari tua, mereka berkata “ketika saya sudah pensiun, nanti saya akan bahagia”

Bagi mereka yang percaya bahwa “Saat saya mendapatkan ini, NANTI saya akan bahagia.”.. kebahagiaan mereka hanyalah menjadi impian masa depan.

Didalam hidup atau bahkan setelah hidup. Mereka tidak akan pernah mewujudkan kebahagiaan.

Oleh karena itu kita harus meneladani nilai Vincentian tentang kesederhanaan. Jangan terikat dengan keinginan duniawi melainkan juga bersyukur atas segala hal yang dimiliki. Bahagia itu sederhana.
