So What Will Matter...?

  1. 1. A Reflection 1
  2. 2. Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.Your wealth, fame and temporal power, will shrivel to irrelevance. 2
  3. 3. It will not matter what you owned, or what you were owed.Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear. So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans,and to-do lists will expire. 3
  4. 4. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It wont matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant. In the end it wont matter where you came from,or on which side of the track you lived. 4
  5. 5. Even your gender and skin colourwill be irrelevant.Then, how will thevalue of your days be measured? So, what will matter? 5
  6. 6. What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave. What will matter is not your success, but your significance.What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught. 6
  7. 7. What will matter is every act of integrity,compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched,empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example. 7
  8. 8. What will matter is not your competence, but your character. What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feela lasting loss when youre gone. 8
  9. 9. What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what. 9
  10. 10. Living a life that matters doesnt happen by accident;its not a matter of circumstance but of choice; and of much patience,perseverance, & determination. 10
  11. 11. So Reflecting mindfully and wisely, LET US • lead a righteous life • reach out to others in need • cultivate and purify the mind • strive diligently in the Dhamma • help spread the Dhamma for the benefit and happiness of all 11
  12. 12. The End May All Be Well,Happy And Peaceful With Metta, Bro. Oh Teik Bin 12
