If you were to rank the following in importance to you, how would you prioritize them?
In order from most important to least---happiness, love, money, fame, compassion
Compassion (I'm not sure what you mean by that)
Explanation: I think if you're truly happy, nothing else really matters, though it would be nice to have someone to share that happiness with. Money is just nice to have to support yourself and the people you love and to do the things you've always wanted to do. Compassion, I don't know, but I know I don't really care about fame at all, for whatever reason.
Because you are happy then you can achieve love in your life and in happy life you can achieve your goals so you can earn money and fame is not important for me whether I am famous or not it doesn't matter me.
Me,my friends and my family is happy with me it's everything for me.
Opens me up to give and receive
Creating a karma where
Flows to me, that might bring
Which is not necessary, but icing on the cake!
I agree. You have expressed it so well!!
compassion, happiness, love, money, fame
Although some of these are a direct result of others - for example compassion and love.
Happiness, love, money, compassion, fame. To be honest, I don't know why fame is in that group. It wouldn't have entered my mind.
Love comes in at No1. Why? Because if you have love - and I'm talking about Self-love - then all the rest will be there almost automatically. For when you are loving of yourself you are loving of other people as well. It will then follow that you will be loved in return. You will be love, loved and lovable.
This would create in you happiness which you'd radiate to others engendering in them at least some happiness. Loving, you'd also be compassionate. Love, compassion and joy are part of the 'essential package' of who you are once all the dross is no longer there.
In loving yourself you'd be accepting of the best so you likely always have enough money. Loving yourself you'd never say, "I don't deserve it," and so you would obtain what you wanted.
And being this sort of person you'd surely attain to fame, for there are so few people like this around...so... My priority: love. Then happiness. The rest can line up as they will.
Love, happiness, compassion, money, and fame.
The reason being is when you have love you have the other 4 fall into place. As far as fame, not interested.
i would say -- love, compassion, happiness, money, fame! although if we are loving and compassionate people happiness should follow so those three are together in some ways.
Love, compassion, happiness, money and lastly fame as I have no desire for fame.
Happiness, love, compassion, money, fame. Happiness being the ultimate goal in life, one has to be happy to love and be compassionate. As for money, having some is nice but it doesn't necessarily contribute to happiness. And fame, thanks, but no thanks!
Happiness and compassion come from love, and I'm not referring to just a romantic kind of love. I mean love for your fellow human beings.
Money and fame don't make my list at all.
My order of importance:
Most important to least:
My take on the the level of importance of these are 1.Happiness 2. Compassion 3. Love 4. Money 5. Fame
When you love, you will feel great joy and happiness. It will make you compassionate to everybody around you and thus if you have money coupled with your compassionate nature then naturally you will gain fame ( like those funding charitable institutions).
The last two I listed could have been left off entirely...to me the compassion is redundant because it is covered by 'love' and fame I care nothing about.
Okay, I would say that for happiness to take place a person should have
5. Fame (not significant)
Compassion opens one's heart to love.
Love brings happiness.
Happiness is not bought by money.
Money gives one a sense of security.
Fame is overrated.
I would say love followed by compassion, then comes happiness a dash of money and a tip of fame.
Love is the most important, without love in your heart for yourself, and others there is no happiness.
Compassion, for our fellow man is my second and I would hope this is returned.
Happiness, however I am learning this is largely dependent on me and my outlook on things.
Money above fame, because I am not going to lie, it's a necessity to comfortable living, eating, internet connection etc...
Fame, really I could do without this, even if my hubs go off tap (haha) and I my writing is popular, I would want them to stand for themselves, and for me to continue my quiet unassuming existence, with the people who I care about and want in my world, not have to bow to the pressures of fame.
Love, happiness (these are the same to me)
I think love is the most important thing in life...But, love generates happiness as well. Money is a must have in our society, and for me fame is irrelevant.
Love, Money, Compassion and lastly fame. I don't care about fame or image or reputation. My love for my kids are important and money could make the world go round, round and round.
1. Love (not just for other's but for yourself)
Fame and money aren't really important. They are intangible things that have no real impact on life... unless of course you let them. There are people with nothing that still fulfilled. Money can't by you anything accept for stuff, and more stuff. As nice as fame would be, living a happy peaceful private life is much better for the soul.
Happiness - You can be happy without love, compassion, money, or fame. Being happy about life is key to enjoying it. Limiting yourself to only being happy once you have one of the four other things only hinders you.
Compassion - Next, we have kindness and generosity towards other things. Give these things your affection and understanding and you will not only feel better for helping them, but your happiness will be boosted as will theirs.
Love - A piece of life that is simply the two former concepts combined and supported. Learning to love and appreciate something or someone to the extent of never wanting to leave them is a big leap and can increase your happiness ten-fold. However, if this relationship goes awry, it can inversely affect your happiness and compassion, and can technically ruin you. Self-love is key and we shouldn't be too altruistic as it can ruin us psychologically.
Money - Unfortunately, having money is a big piece of how we function as a society. It is only needed as a mean of obtaining goods and/or needs. It can contribute positively to the above, but can also be immensely negative depending on the situation.
Fame - This is more of a bonus than anything else. Being famous can be wonderful if it's positive. Since we aren't using infamy, then I assume all fame is positive. Not really important, but more of a bonus and a boost to the above!
Pragmatically speaking our needs are generally guided by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Lowest tier is addressed by money (physiological and safety) followed by happiness, love & compassion (belongingness and love needs) and lastly fame (esteem needs).
Higher level of needs can be fulfilled only once lower level needs are satisfied.
Their order for me is as follows; Love, Compassion, Happiness, Money, Fame. And I have to say I'm not interested in fame whatsoever and money only because our society creates a situation where you need it.
Love, happiness, money, compassion and fame.....this will be the order of fom most important to least for me. Thank you.

I want to share certain things with you. You (most of you) are antagonistic towards established and organized religions of the world.I must say that, factually, we are (every animal & every human being) 'spirits'. And spirituality is a very practical issue, and not some romantic notion that is...
