NOTHING ELSE MATTERS
 
 Metallica 
 
 

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
 
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
 
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
 
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know
 
So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
 
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know
 
I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
 
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
 
Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know
 
So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters

     Ah, this is great!!! Thank you so much for sharing! I did hear this song before but never knew who it was by.

     I'm still trying to understand the meaning behind the lyrics. Very interesting!

 

 Re: NOTHING ELSE MATTERS -

MY PERCEPTION OF THE WORDS

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
 
     INSTINCT, INSPIRATION IS WITHIN US.
 
     WHAT SEEMS OUT OF REACH, WHAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE, IS ALWAYS PRESENT WITHIN US.
 
     THE HEART, INNER LOVE, CANNOT GIVE YOU MORE THAN THIS. IN TRUTH, IT IS ONLY THIS WE TRUST OR CAN TRUST. AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS THAN THIS INTERNAL CONNECTION.
 
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
 
     HE DISCOVERS THAT THIS IS SOMETHING SACRED, THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE SENSATIONALIZED, THAT WE MUST CHERISH OUR INNER VOICE, OUR INNER LOVE, OUR INNER LIGHT. HE DOES NOT WANT TO BOAST OR BRAG. HE WANTS TO KEEP THIS SACRED. BUT HE FEELS HE HAS TO BE OPEN ENOUGH TO SHARE THIS TRUTH WITH ANOTHER WHO HE FEELS WILL RESPECT IT.
 
     OUR LIFE, OUR SPIRIT, IS OURS TO EXPRESS AND EXTEND TO OTHERS.
IT IS OUR PATH TO LIVE, TO WALK. IT IS OUR LIFE WE MUST LIFE, NOT SOMEONE ELSE’S.
 
     WE MUST WALK OUR PATH, FULFILL OUR FUNCTION AND NOT FOLLOW MINDLESSLY WHAT OTHERS SAY WE MUST THINK, SAY AND DO. 
 
     WE CANNOT JUST SAY WHAT WE THINK OR BELIEVE. WE MUST DEMONSTRATE THE WORDS WE SPEAK.
 
     WE MUST LIVE THE TRUTH OF OUR WORDS. WE CANNOT SAY ONE THING AND DO ANOTHER. IF WE DO, THEN OUR LIFE IS A CONTRADICTION.
 
     WE CANNOT SAY WE ARE OPEN-MINDED AND THEN DEMONSTRATE BEING FEARFUL ABOUT LOOKING INSIDE OURSELVES AT HOW WE THINK, HOW WE BELIEVE, WHAT WE GIVE OUR POWER TO, HOW WE LIVE EITHER BY OTHERS’ RULES AND LAWS OR OUR OWN.
 
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
 
     TRUST IS WITHIN US.
 
     INSPIRATION, LOVE, LIFE, REALITY IS WITHIN US, NOT OUTSIDE US.
 
     WE MUST TRUST OURSELVES FIRST. IF WE TRUST OURSELVES FIRST WE NEVER HAVE TO BELIEVE OTHERS HOLD THE ANSWERS FOR US. IF WE TRUST OURSELVES NO ONE CAN EVER DECEIVE US. WE THEN WOULD LOOK AT OTHERS WHO TRUST THEMSELVES.
 
     WE LOOK FOR THE INTEGRITY OF OTHERS WHO TRUST IN THEMSELVES AND WHO ARE NOT SLAVES TO THE OUTSIDE ARTIFICIAL WORLD.
 
     IF WE LIVE BY TRUSTING IN OURSELVES, THEN EVERY DAY BECOMES A NEW DAY, BECAUSE TRUSTING IN OURSELVES MEANS TO TRUST THAT WE ARE PART OF A VAST UNIVERSAL LAW/LOVE/LIFE THAT HAS NO LIMITS, NO BOUNDARIES, NO ARTIFICIALITY.
 
     IF YOU LOOK AT A PLANT, EVERY DAY IT GROWS ANOTHER LIMB, ANOTHER LEAF, ANOTHER STEM, AND IT IS ALWAYS GROWING AND EXPANDING. IT REACHES TO THE SUN FOR WARMTH THAT IT NEEDS TO GROW.
 
      THAT IS WHAT WE DO WHEN WE ARE RELATED TO THE LIFE FORCE WITHIN US, THE SPIRIT THAT WE ARE THAT IS AN EXTENSION OF THE UNIVERSAL SPIRIT OF HIGHER INTELLIGENCE.
 
     HIGHER INTELLIGENCE HAS NO LIMITS. IT IS FOREVER EXPANDING. IT IS VAST.
 
     IF WE CAN OPEN OUR MINDS TO THE UNLIMITED MIND/SPIRIT, EVERY DAY BECOMES SOMETHING NEW. WE COULD NEVER LIVE A DULL, MUNDANE LIFE OF ROUTINE AND ARTIFICIALITY WHERE WE NEED OTHERS TO AFFIRM OUR WORTH. WE THEN HAVE SOMETHING TO GIVE.
 
     AN OPEN MIND MEANS A DIFFERENT PERCEPTION ABOUT OURSELVES. WHEN WE CAN BE OPEN TO DIFFERENT PERCEPTIONS, THEN OUR LIFE IS EXPANDING AND FOREVER CHANGING.
 
     WHEN WE LEARN TO OPEN OUR MINDS, WE LEARN THAT EVERYTHING HAS TWO MEANINGS. PERCEPTIONS CHANGE, AND CHANGES IN PERCEPTIONS MAKE A LIFE OF VAST WONDER.
 
     NOTHING ELSE MATTERS TO US WHEN OUR MIND IS OPEN AND RECEPTIVE TO HIGHER INTELLIGENCE.
 
     THE EXTERNAL WORLD NO LONGER IS THE FOCUS OF OUR ATTENTION.
OUR VAST INNER WORLD IS THE ONLY THING THAT IS IMPORTANT, AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS TO US THAN THAT WHEN WE TRUST IN OURSELVES AND TAP INTO THAT VAST RESERVOIR OF WONDER.
 
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know
 
     WHEN WE DISCOVER WITHIN WHO WE ARE, WE WILL NOT CARE FOR WHAT OTHERS DO, OR WHAT OTHERS BELIEVE, OTHERS WHO ARE SLAVES TO THE EXTERNAL WORLD OF POLITICS, RELIGION, GOVERNMENT, SOCIAL ENVIRONMENTS, AND THE ARTIFICIAL INTELLECTUALITY OF FALSE KNOWING.
 
     WE WILL NOT NEED A FACEBOOK PAGE TO PROVE OUR WORTH TO OTHERS OR SEEK TO DRAW FALSE ACCOLADES TO OURSELVES FROM OTHERS.
  
     THE EXTERNAL WORLD KEEPS OUR ATTENTION THERE, AND WE BECOME SLAVES TO WHAT OTHERS DECIDE WHAT WE WILL DO, HOW WE MUST PARTICIPATE IN A WORLD GOVERNED BY OTHER PEOPLE WHO ASSUME THEY KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR US.
 
     A PERSON WHO TRUSTS HIMSELF, TRUSTS HIS INNER INSTINCTS, HIS INNER WORLD, THE INNER VOICE OF HIGHER INTELLIGENCE WILL BE A MAN OF INTEGRITY. HE IS NOT SEDUCED BY THE EXTERNAL WORLD OF ARTIFICIALITY.
 
      HE SEES "ONE NATION UNDER GOD" MEANS ONE UNIVERSE, NOT ONE COUNTRY.
 
     FOR HIM, 'FAMILY' IS THE UNIVERSE, THE SUN, THE STARS, OTHER PLANETS, THE EARTH  AND EVERYTHING UPON IT.
 
     HE KNOWS THAT SELF-KNOWLEDGE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO HIM, AND NOT THE FALSE KNOWLEDGE THE EXTERNAL WORLD IS ATTEMPTING TO SELL US.
 
So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
 
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know
 
I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
 
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
 
Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know
 
     HE DOES NOT CARE FOR WHAT OTHERS SAY, HOW THEY WANT TO BE PART OF THE MUNDANE, THE COLLECTIVE INSANITY. PEOPLE FLOCK TO EACH OTHER BECAUSE THEY ARE INSECURE. A MAN OF INTEGRITY WHO TRUSTS IN HIMSELF IS RARE, AND IT IS THIS PERSON YOU WILL NOT FIND BELONGING TO A GROUP, ORGANIZATION, CLUB OR SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT. 
 
     HE STANDS ALONE ON HIS OWN, AND HE LOOKS FOR OTHERS WHO ARE LIKE THAT WITH WHOM HE CAN CONNECT.
 
     HE IS NOT INTERESTED IN THEIR GAMES, THEIR RITUALS, THEIR ROUTINES, THEIR BELIEFS, THEIR FOOLISH PURSUITS FOR EXTERNAL STIMULATION.
 
     WHAT THEY DO IS NOT APPEALING TO HIM. THEY WANT YOU TO PAY THE TAXES SO THEY CAN GO TO WAR, TO KILL PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES YOU HAVE NOT EVER MET.
 
     THEY WANT YOU TO AGREE THAT THEIR AGENDA FOR YOU IS GOOD, AND IF THEY CAN CONVINCE YOU THEY KNOW HOW TO KEEP YOU SAFE, THEN THEY CAN SELL YOU ANYTHING.
 
     THEY WILL EVEN TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE IN DANGER, AND THAT THEY HAVE THE SOLUTION AS TO HOW TO KEEP YOU SAFE. AND YOU WILL BE A SLAVE AND SUBSERVIENT TO THEIR SYSTEM OF DOGMA, BELIEF AND INSANE LAWS.
 
     BUT A MAN WHO HAS TRUST IN HIMSELF CANNOT BE BOUGHT. HE HAS HIS OWN VOICE. AND THAT VOICE WILL BE APPEALING TO ALL BEINGS BECAUSE ALL BEINGS HAVE THIS TRUTH, THIS INTEGRITY WITHIN THEM. BUT WE MUST OPEN THE MIND TO THIS TRUTH.
 
     HE DOES NOT CARE WHAT THEY THINK, SAY, DO OR KNOW. HE KNOWS IN HIS HEART AND MIND THAT WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS TRUST IN HIMSELF.
 
     HE HAS A PART TO PLAY ON THE EARTH AND WHEN HE DISCOVERS HIS INNER VOICE IT IS THIS AND ONLY THIS HE INTRODUCES TO ANYONE WHO MAY BE REMOTELY INTERESTED IN HEARING WHAT HIS HEART HAS TO SAY.
 
So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters
 
     AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. 
 

 
     Today my study reveals,
 
You cannot distort reality and know what it is. And if you do distort reality, you will experience anxiety, depression and ultimately panic, because you are trying to make yourself unreal. When you feel these things, do not try to look beyond yourself for truth, for truth can only be within you. Say, therefore, ‘The truth is in me, and where truth is Life/Love must be, for truth is part of Life/Love’.”
 
     Another way to say this is,
 
     “Trust is in me, for where trust is Life must be, for trust is part of Life”.
 
     This you can see easily and live according to this principle.
 
     If you look at a squirrel, it goes about the day looking for its daily meal. It is not full of anxiety, depression or panic. It goes about finding what it seeks. It is sure it will find it.
 
     A bird knows it will find the worm to feed her new born.
 
     A butterfly knows it will find the sweet nectar that it needs so that the flower will be pollinated.
 
     Nature holds the key to your earthly journey. Nature is life in action. Look to nature for ANY ANSWER TO ANY PROBLEM YOU HAVE. It is there if you are open-minded enough to see it. 
 
     Nature is an expression of life.
     Nature demonstrates TRUST IN LIFE.
 
     A butterfly therefore knows this truth – “Trust is in me, for what trust is Life must be, for trust is part of Life. I trust life to provide to me all that I need. For I am part of Life, and as a part of Life on this earth I have a function to fulfill.”
 
     When you can say these words and MEAN THEM, and LIVE THEM, then you are awake.
 
     “All these words I don’t just say, and nothing else matters”.
 
     When nothing else matters to you expect fulfilling your part on the earth, then you will know an inner peace the world cannot give you. Until then, you will sleep, seeking outside yourself for what you think you want or need.
 
     As I said to you many times, “That which seeks is That Which we seek”.
