Would not the most important things in life be integrally connected to the following two questions: what is the meaning of life and what is the purpose of life?
These are very important questions that demand an answer, for without an answer to these questions, all else holds little value.
You are born naked and are buried with one suit on. How long will be the space between the points of birth and death is undetermined and incalculable. It is what it is! It comes as it comes!
What is paramount, is to find the real important things in life and be consumedin that.
So, what are the real important things in life?
If you ask that question to people in general, they would invariably respond, among other things: God, family, love, friends, money, health, power, fame.
While many things are important, the most important would be: is there a God? Who is God? Can we get to know him? Why did he create us? Can we communicate with him? Does he communicate with us? Does he care about us? Does he care about me?
If we cannot answer these questions to our satisfaction, then we must continue our search until these questions are answered.
Is this a boring, tedious search?
Related to our search for God, are the questions: what is the meaning of life and what is the purpose of life? These three important things are intertwined and we usually discover the answers all together and at the same time.
While there are many other important things in life like money, power, love, fame, family, friends, health, in the end these are not as important as the first three.
How does one go about finding the important things in life?
Each person is endowed with what it takes to find the answers: reason, logic, commons sense, questions, observation.
So, find out what the important things (God, meaning of life, purpose of life) in life are and you will live a happy and satisfied life, now and for eternity, and all other important things (love, family, friends, health) will be added as a bonus.
