    I think love is important because love includes self, family, friends, forgiveness, and self-control to the point where if things start to get too uncontrollable, loves brings it back together.

    Love, friendship, and self-acceptance. It is important to surround yourself with people that encourage one another to succeed and to be yourself. It is important to accept yourself - flaws and all.

      You can also look at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, which covers physiological, safety, social, esteem, and self-actualization needs.

    There are only 5 things one "needs"  to sustain life on this planet.
    1. Air 2.Water 3. Food 4.Shelter 5. Clothing
    Everything else is a (want/desire) or would be "nice to have".
    Once we have our basic needs met that is when we focus on dreams, goals, having enough money to live a certain lifestyle, finding love, having a family, traveling, and doing a certain amount of introspective thinking while acknowledging a spiritual connection to the universe.
    Having said that the most important "need" in life on this planet is (air). Without it you will surly perish within minutes!

    God. Everything else is an illusion and will someday disappear. The Spirit is already invisible. So nothing happens to Spirit. That is the only eternal thing.

    The Beatles had it right...All You Need Is Love! A life filled with riches and the trappings of material success is ultimately a sad and lonely one if it lacks love. A person can make it through the worst of living conditions if they are loved. I could go on forever on this topic, but I won't. In short...LOVE.

    Love, family and friends. Also, "learning to love yourself", as the song goes. I mean really, im not talking about self love or self righteousness, but simply loving yourself - thinking about YOU too, your own wants and needs, eliminating negative thoughts and even negative people in your life! But most importantly, God. Welcome Him in your life, or re-embrace Him, again (this is my current endeavor).

    My freedom and my family, both my blood relatives and my husband, and my in-laws. With these two things (freedom and family) I am most happy, therefore I need them/ it

    God is love. The highest law is that we love one another as ourselves.

    Kabbalah also teaches this. In fact, Kabbalists wrote the Bible, hiding their wisdom therein for over 3,000 years. In 1995, this secret wisdom was released to the general public.

    Aspiration is the beginning and end of the journey. When the child is hungry, it cries and the mother comes running. So too, we cannot knock at God's door without seeking; longing, earnestness, knocking. There must be an intense inner flame or cry for the Divine.

    Ambition is needed for the businessman to succeed. Without this, he will not do well. Desire is very necessary from the most basic idea to get the river or water flowing; to prevent stagnancy, or to make some one rich. To find God a higher form of this same or similar process is called Aspiration, and it is this inner longing that will eventually set us free.
