What Really Matters

I recently came across the Rob Thomas song "Little Wonders".  Its message is a very beautiful one and I could not help but hear in the lyrics - 'It's the heart that really matters in the end'. I knew I heard or read that expression before. Whether it be in the end or the most, the message is still the same.

From Faith into Action (Daisaku Ikeda):

"Our heart is what matters most.  A heart that praises the Mystic law brings forth boundless benefit. And the heart that praises those who spread the Mystic Law elicits still greater benefit."
"Everything is determined by our attitude, by our resolve. Our heart is what matters the most."
"Those who exert themselves  for the sake of the Law are ever young. Our heart is what matters the most."

Written by Rob Thomas

Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours
These small hours
Still remain

Let it slide
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine,
Till you feel it all around you
And I don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by
It's the heart that really matters in the end

Little Wonders is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. If he never writes another song, Rob Thomas has left a wonderful legacy with just that one song. Did you know that his dog inspired him to write it?
