    Orang Mawas or Mawas (also known as the Orang Dalam) is a hominid cryptid reported to inhabit the jungle of Johor in Malaysia. It is described as being about 10 ft (2.4-3 m) tall, bipedal and covered in black fur, and has been reported feeding on fish and raiding orchards. There have been many sightings of the creature, which the local Orang Asli people call hantu jarang gigi, which translates as 'Snaggle-toothed Ghost'.[1] Recorded claims of Mawas sightings date back to 1871.[2] Some speculate the creature may be a surviving Gigantopithecus, while others dismiss the sightings as misidentified Sun Bears.The creature is similar to the Muwa, another hominid, this time found in the Philippines.

    So, maybe banyak bulu ( having lots of hair) can be referred to the word mawas.

    Mawi is actually a person. He is a famous (although I don't listen to his works) singer. He is a product of Akademi Fantasia, a singing tv show. His fanbase is quite big and Malaysia haven't seen anything quite like his influence in the industry since Datuk Siti Nurhaliza, another super famous female singer. Mawi sports a bald (botak) head and people thought it was cool and a trend was started. So, anyone with a bald head was teased as Mawi. That's where the name is coined. I don't think Mawi means botak.

    I think Christ put it pretty clear in Jn 14:15 as you quoted. But, what I have come to understand in it's full meaning is to keep the Word of God in your heart and on your mind, by seeking first the kingdom [Matt 6:33]. If we center our lives upon Christ, and the Word which is Christ, then we obey and keep His commandments, which are to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and to love our neighbor. By thinking first of Christ (What Would Jesus Do) [WWJD], then each thought and action is directed by the Spirit, and therefore living in obedience to the will of God. This is how the body of Christ shares it's light with the world. This is the love of Christ in us working through us. This is how we become His hands, His feet, His eyes. This is the power of the cross through His people.
