    Health.  Without that, you can't do much else.

    To live and enjoy life is the most important thing.

    Some would say health, but we are not all born with that.
    Some would say a purpose, but some will never discover that.
    Some would say to ponder the universe and god, but some never question that.
    Some would say happiness, but some never achieve that.
    Some would say love, but there are those that can never love anything.

    So live your life as a gift, it is all you have. Enjoy your life, it is all you can do.

    Self knowledge. When you understand yourself, you understand all of consciousness and all of humanity. And you are free and you care and you live. Everything that is our world comes from us. Without self knowledge we destroy ourselves. Which is actually happening in the world now. That's self-knowledge, by the way.

    I think that is a personal answer; unique to every individual.  For me, it is my family; my wife and my children.  More than my career or any personal item I can own, my family.  I chose a career where I could work for myself and from home.  I raised my 3 children (now 17, 14 and 10) from diapers to where they are now.  I will never regret putting my wife and my children first.  I have been fortunate that I have been able to spend as much time with them as I have.  My wife and children are the most important thingS in my life.

    Death. More specifically when death happens. Avoiding Death is key.

      Use your fear to the world's advantage.  Make a career learning how to defeat death.

      I am not afraid of death. I realize it may come as quite a shock. Unafraid none-the-less. A cure for death would be illogical, as we will learn the greatest question to life. Without that answer, we wonder aimlessly, concocting new outlandish stories

      My apologies.  I assumed you feared death.  I disagree w/u about learning. My philosophy preaches death as an end to u as what u r now. Elements return 2 the earth & reform. So an answer 2 death is logical & rational if u want 2 survive as u.

    Having a personal relationship with God. Everything else will fall into place after that. Family, friends, love, health, prosperity, etc.

    For me, a relationship with God is the most important thing in life. After that, there is nothing else to think about.

      I mean no offense; your words are from your heart no doubt.  But your parents, siblings, children, loved ones - are second to a god you have never met?

      My young daughter once said to me that I should love God more than anything else including my family. I had a very hard time accepting that! Since, I have grown in my relationship w/ Him & see the wisdom that all our blessings come through Him.

      But, RealityTalk, I am offended, nevertheless.

    I think that loving one another is the most important thing. This is God's commandment to us.

    For us to live a full and productive life, (1) we must have the love and support of  our family; (2) we must have a belief system undergirded by man's inate truth and dignity; (3) we must have the audacity not only to dream but also to reach out for our destiny, not only as individuals, but most importantly as a specie.

    To create.  We only get to alter this reality while we're here - take advantage and make something - anything - that wasn't here before.  Everyday smile

    This question is subjective with as many answers as people answering it.

    The key elements according to Maslow's hierarchy of motivational needs are as follows: biological, physiological, safety, social, esteem, personal growth and fulfillment needs. In order to even have a life you must have these and everything else is subjective.

    My personal subjective matter of importance in life is to create and be creative, which is something I have just done with this answer.

    What it means is I have a mind to think freely and make thoughts or ideas into something tangible.

    Love is one of the most important things in Life, Gratitude is another.  Being grateful for all we have, to see the beauty in everything.

    The joy and happiness of Self, the rest falls into place as it should. If my internal peace and joy is off balance, I have learned the ways in which that has a domino effect.

    To me, good health and love. Without good health and having loved ones around you, life can be very lonely and scary.

    Life itself is the most important thing. Everything is important if we are alive. After we are dead, nothing here is important for us.
