"The rest will follow. Right?"

No. That implies this is a just world where all be need is faith, and that is not true.

What matters is that you’re living healthy n’ peaceful and that you have enough food to eat ...

That's living for the "now". Gotta consider the future too.

I think everything matters!!

Just take a look at "what mattered" from the cave men days – to the 20th century. If humanity only cared about food, shelter and clothing.. then we would still be in caves..

the difference is that it *matters* and therefore is!!

wow, that's my philosophy exactly. what's the point of living for the future or the past when you will only ever live in the present?

I appreciate the sentiment, but it seems to me that if you smoke, are "too fat", and have bad teeth and a hangover you're not living so very "healthy and peaceful."

I put "too fat" in quotes because I strongly believe that while that point exists it is much further out than most people seem to believe... you are too fat when you are at risk of heart failure, not when you can no longer see the entirety of your spine through your skin...

I think Wyclef and The Rock have already discussed what matters in the following video:

"Whether you believe in God or not does not matter so much, whether you believe in Buddha or not does not matter so much; as a Buddhist, whether you believe in reincarnation or not does not matter so much. You must lead a good life. And a good life does not mean just good food, good clothes, good shelter. These are not sufficient. A good motivation is what is needed: compassion, without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy; just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters and respecting their rights and human dignity. That we humans can help each other is one of our unique human capacities. We must share in other peoples' suffering; even if you cannot help with money, to show concern, to give moral support and express sympathy are themselves valuable. This is what should be the basis of activities; whether one calls it religion or not does not matter."
-- The Dalai Lama

Also see: Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

*Because* I have food in my belly and a place to sleep tonight, I have the luxury of worrying about how sexy I am and whether I kick enough bootay to keep up with the Joneses.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs doesn't take into account that in India very poor people go on spiritual searches...
anyhow – great post.
