This is indeed a question that everyone asks. Our lives are filled with myriad things, and at every moment different things appear more or less important to us.
For instance, if we get tired, then it becomes important to rest or to sleep. If we are hungry, then eating becomes important. If we get bored, then it becomes important to somehow entertain ourselves, and we could continue this list ad nauseam.
How, then, can we find the most important thing in life?
The most important thing in life is to feel something unconditional, eternal and perfect, that we can see through our world—and all the worlds—with no boundaries between life and death, and that we fulfill our every desire, including those that we are still unfamiliar with, namely the desire to acquire the same attitude of love and bestowal as the source force of nature.
There is nothing more important in life. It is the very peak of where everything in existence heads.
How, then, do we reach that state?
We do so by learning how nature—including human nature—works, how our process of development unfolds through the still, vegetative, animate and human levels of nature, what is the final destination to this developmental process, where is our free choice, and how we can realize our choice in order to impact a shift from our transient and limited perception to the eternal and perfect one.
If we gain the wisdom to access such knowledge and a method to implement our fateful transition to attain eternity and perfection, then that wisdom and method becomes more important than anything else.
