What Really Matters©

I am not interested in your ancestral tree or how deep your roots are…

But what type of foundation they have laid for who you are now

It is not important what color you skin is, nor the color of your eyes or hair…

But how much light your soul radiates

It does not matter what you look like or how much you weight or how tall you are…

But what is significant is what the heart and soul see

The depth of your pocket does not interest me…

What does, is the breadth and magnificence of your soul

It is irrelevant whose footsteps you follow…

But that you walk to beat of your inner self

It is not about being perfect…

But about finding perfection in everything

It is inappropriate that you search for love in others…

Before you find it unconditionally in yourself first

The state of your earthly existence is not momentous…

The Magnanimity of your Divinity though, is

Your poem is reminiscent of

Your poem is reminiscent of 'The Invitation' by Oriah. Perhaps this was your inspiriation? Very nice indeed. :)

Thanks...

Glad you enjoyed it.

'The Invitation" by Oriah is indeed a very lovely piece.

Many times, a word or feeling inspire me, and other times things just seem to flow spontaneously at the oddest times--when I am driving for example or just before sleep and wake. But, for this particular one, I can't recall whether I wrote it before or after reading "The Invitation", so it is possible :).

Peace, love and harmony!

matter really

it is our intuition blended with divinity and holiness which matters for evolution of consciousness for the fulfill of aim of human birth------the great liberation (moksha).

Lol... as I think.

Nothing would really matter if there was no rebirth: as we would be one with the supreme (Moksh).

I wonder what would happen to the non believers of this system.
