Geography and Kejawen
The Quality of life
Since 1985, his interest to kejawen grew. He met his colleage and relative, Dr. Sukintiko who has same interest. When they went together to their ancestor's graveyard, Adipati (court regent) Djajaningrat, famous with his nick-name Eyang (grand-pa) Sapujagad, a son-in-law of Sultan Hamengkubuwono II, they got a mystical instruction (dawuh), that from that moment, they become partners seeking true spiritual knowledge. They go together to many sacred places. The mystical messages, received by Pak Sukintoko, properly interpreted by Pak Imam and vise versa.
Pak Imam does Samadi anytime. He sits cross-legged, worshipping sincerely to Gusti, God the Almighty. Sometimes he does tayuh, solemnly requests Gusti of something he would like to know. With full concentration of mind, he begins to meditate as long as he can. If too-night, he got no message yet, he should continue the following night. Everything could happened only with the permit of all-loving God.
As a believer in God, his focuss of pray is to mamayu hayuning bawono (to embellish the world for the benefit of mankind), a good correct life and well-being for other people as well as for himself and his family.
He is confident that kejawen is a proper way to truly improve the quality of life, for the benefit of mankind. confidently he told the writer:
Always remember to worship and be grateful to God the Almighty, think and do only things in the paths blessed and permitted by Gusti. Sincerity and morality are a must and have to be practiced consciously. Only with clear mind, holy heart and correct deed, you should be able to be closer to Gusti.
Based upon the above moral guidance, preservers of kejawen are always concern with the safety and well-being of mankind and the Universe with all its contents.
"Some people ask me how I got this spiritual ability. Well to tell the truth, I myself do not known how I get this small ability", said the low profile Professor. Suryo S. Negoro
