It doesn’t matter if you were the top statistician in your field

When the time comes, you might not be able to communicate 2+2

Were you loved? That’s what matters

 

It doesn’t matter if you had the biggest yacht in the yard

When the days are near, you might not be able to see the hand in front of you

Did you gaze deeply into the eyes of another? That’s what matters

 

It doesn’t matter if you had two PhDs and a Nobel prize

When fire catches all the books in the library, your written work will be gone

Did you pass on your knowledge to others? That’s what matters

 

It doesn’t matter if you had the biggest bank account on the block

When you can’t control your bodily functions, you can’t buy them back

Did you share your abundance with others? That’s what matters

 

It doesn’t matter if you were the chief of a hospital or village

When your days are numbered you might not be able to even sit in your chair

Did you teach others to serve as they lead? That’s what matters.

 

It doesn’t matter if you had 5 children and 10 grandchildren

When you take your last breath, you leave behind the lessons that you taught.

Did you give unconditional love to all of them? That’s what matters.

 

It doesn’t matter if you loved yesterday or plan to love someone tomorrow

When you can’t speak, eat or drink, your spirit is no longer recognizable

Did you love today and every day, every hour, every minute? That’s what matters.

 

Love is what matters. Love in every shape and form. Love your being, love your life, love your work, love others, love the earth. Always exude love and you will be loved in this life and the next. Love is all that matters.
