Consistency is one of those difficult things. Promises to yourself to be consistent often just evaporate. The fire of passion, in the beginning, was easy to set off, but keeping it burning was no easy task. It turns out that what the people say has a point, keeping something is more difficult than obtaining it. I'm still too weak to keep the flames of spirit burning, it's too easy for these flames to be put out by even the smallest of things.

There is something we have to ask ourselves about this month of Ramadan. The lust that usually brings pleasure and we indulge, now we have to fight and hold back. Yes, it seems that this is the origin of the idiom that Demon is imprisoned in the month of Ramadan because Demon is our passions. It is lust that guides our path to hell if it is always spoiled.

The demon who is said to always seduce us to evil seems to be an illusion. It is only a manifestation of our passions. However, humans always want to appear charming, humans want to always appear right, therefore humans blame Demon for what he does if the output is bad. Humans easily blame something outside of themselves with the addition of the word "mistake". For me, it would be better if humans would blame themselves for what they did. Don't just blame the devil.

It seems logical why Demon is imprisoned during the month of Ramadan. Because, as long as we fast we have to kill our passions. Now, the easiest way to avoid Demon temptations is to cut our throats, because the real devil is ourselves. That is why Rasulullah said, "You are heading from a minor jihad to a greater jihad" after the war. Someone has asked what is the greater jihad? Rasulullah answered "The struggle of a servant against his lust".

The month of Ramadan is like confirming the psychoanalytic theory of Sigmund Freud. The theory of the personality of this phenomenal figure has been challenged everywhere, even though psychological therapy is still based on his theory. Sigmund Freud, if I'm not mistaken, said that the id (unconscious impulses) must be channelled. Otherwise, it could explode at any time and produce even more dangerous behaviour. For example, for Freud, the sex drive had to be channelled, because otherwise at times the sex drive was unbearable and the person raped the person.

Immediately this head wondered whether this Freud theory also applies to people who fast? When fasting we are told to hold back our lust. The most basic passions that must be suppressed are eating, drinking, and sex. Well, the wonder why in the month of Ramadan when we are told to endure hunger, the prices of staple foods soar? This soaring price is due to high demand, the law of economics. Not to mention the people whose weight increases during the month of Ramadan.

Apart from suppressing the basic passions, we are also required to restrain the more difficult passions, namely anger. But again the reality says something else. Just try to walk down the streets before breaking the fast. The road users suddenly turned into fierce beasts. What did the hell happen? Did this all happen because of a subconscious urge that exploded after having to be held back from dawn to dusk?

Some say that if you run it for 21 days it will become a habit. The month of Ramadan, which requires fasting for those who believe, is a madrasa to make themselves better. But, again the reality is the opposite. After the month of Ramadan ends, we return to being a den of demons without the slightest improvement.

It seems there is something wrong with our understanding of fasting so that many of us do not go up to the next grade after going to madrasah from God for one month. I don't know what happened, I hope my vision of the reality in this fasting month is wrong and we change to become a better person after all of this.
