    Things that people want most out of life

    Real happiness, contentment, security, and true love. I want to add: A close relationship with God as well.

    Life in itself is just an amazing adventure. So really I just want to experience what it has to offer. Part of that is my relationship with my Gods, also my family/friends, and just the beautiful experiences of being alive. 

    Beyond that, I would hope to contribute something to help other people appreciate this journey as much as I do. I hope I can make an impact on someone, whether it would be to offer them compassion or kindness in a dark moment or to make them smile or to help them with a burden.

    Security is important of course, it makes things easier, but overall it's not the material things I'm into, it's the experiences.

      Once again you have responded in a very positive up building way. Thank you. Much of what you say is Bible based when it comes to not being materialistic and showing compassion and kindness to others. Are you a Bible reader as well?

      I have studied the Bible, as I've studied the texts of many different religions. It doesn't play any role in my religion, other than the fact that, like all religions, it offers some pearls of wisdom & good advice. But I've read it.

    I want to do the will of God the most out of my life. When I see God in Heaven, I want Him to commend me by say "Well done my good and faithful servant."

      I too  want to continue doing God's will and to please Him in all my endeavors. You and I have different hopes and destination goals. You wish to be in heaven and my hope is to live forever on a beautiful peaceful  paradise earth (Psalms 37:29)

    It is the other way around for we are in fact enspirited beings. Suffering comes because we feed the body and not the Soul.

    But yes, to be practical, we are all looking for the above, not knowing that we are unconsciously searching for God and will not be happy until we merge and become one.
