What else matters?

What else matters?
The sound is loud
The light is bright
The divine is present
Spirit is in everything
Everywhere and always
What else matters?
Balance and peace
Of heart and mind
Detachment to be
Trusting life and love
Guidance and protection
That things are as needed
To take the next step
In consciousness
Unfolding soul
Into realization
Observing God
Realizing itself
Every moment
Here and now
No matter what
Tries to block the way
Used as stepping stone
To move on beyond
Root into giving
Mostly being
In the moment
Free in divine love
What else matters?

“Mischief or miss a chief” — PentaBluNaLa with chant

PentaBluNaLa on C# — 8-string guitar, double voice, tanpura — 5:01

“The Conference / Speech of the Birds” مقامات الطیور / منطق الطیر

Are we alive or dead?
Where is that king
with all the answers?
We’ve come all this way.
Let us see him!
We made it through
all these valleys!

They were only
an illusion, birds, a dream.
We’ve been through nothing.
We are just now
at the beginning
of our journey.

— “The Conference of the Birds”, Peter Sís / Farid Ud-Din Attar فریدالدین
