Actually these are two questions I will explain a bit further.
I am inspired to ask these question since a couple of minutes ago, I have made my personal, ground-breaking shall I call it as such, realization of understanding some of foundations I have built my life on. Namely - TIME.
I have made a lot of choices in my physical reality (life) which were based on a certain belief of meaning of time which caused lot of problems to me (Of course I realize that problems are only creation of one's perspective and as such do not exist, but for the sake of understanding I will keep them in equation).
For example, I seem to be always late all the time (which is a paradox really, since everything in the universe is at the right time and at the right place as it is here and now, so I can't really be late). Or I prioritize saving time for many easy activities rather than a lengthy one. Which might mean, speaking in terms of our reality as created and viewed by our society, that I do not do work assignments I should.
And I tried to explore why it is so. After digging deep into my "core" I have found out that it is in fact my core belief that "The time is the most important thing in life" all these situations spring from. And the reason I believed the time to be the most important thing in life was my definition of life, which due to my limited understanding back at days was that "we are here only for a limited period of time and so it would only make sense to experience as much as we can, before it runs out".
And the reason I'm asking you these two question is simple. I want to accelerate the experience of, lets say, transition from state that I am in to the one I want to be at. In order to experience things of my desire and joy. Of course again, I realize I am not really accelerating anything, as I am merely taking another logical and natural step in my own development at my own pace.
And to this very moment my understanding is also such, that it is not only me developing, but it is us. Since what I experience you in a way experience as well, as we are one. Even though in our physical reality we are different and seemingly separate so that we can experience "ourselves" in endless amount of ways.
Therefore, be so kind and answer following two questions.
Q1: What do you BELIEVE to be the most important thing in life from your perspective?
Q2: What definition of WHAT is supporting the existence of this BELIEF?
Hi CalonLan, Life is the most important thing in life and therefore survival is of parmount importance. Whatever it takes moraly for your physical, evolutionary and spiritual survival is important in any life. One could argue that even when physicaly dead one is still alive in spirit for life cannot die. Yes that is true but I'm talking about your conscious life lived in the now here on planet earth in this moment in time. If one ensures ones own survival than everything else will follow suit if we learn and grow. We cannot learn and grow and evolve here on earth unless we survive long enough to do so.
How do I know this? Without life we wouldnt be here asking this question. Life is all there is was and ever will be. If you believe in God than you can say God is Life.

Interesting questions CalonLan :)
The most important thing in life can be summed up using this equation:
Being Happy <> Feeling Good <> Well-Being <> Now.
In my view, that's the only state of being worth aiming for, because absent that state of everything else is a moot point. There's not much purpose to anything if you're not happy and you're not feeling good; because absent that state of well-being, everything else is really just pointless things and stuff! :)
Ahh, as always, it comes back to the fact, the truth and the reality of the existence of the one eternal moment of NOW. This is no longer a belief for me, it's what I call advanced reason and logic. Let's say that there's only the one moment, there is... And that within that one moment, and due to its eternal nature, and the fact that we do exist... then it logically follows that we've always existed, we have...
Sure, within the one eternal moment, we do create the idea of time in which to experience certain other states, such as pain and suffering, but these states are transitory and they simply show us that we created them through our own negative thoughts and beliefs, right? We willingly drifted out of the NOW and into the not now of psychological time, which only exists within our mind, but not independent of it, for our own reasons...
Use this mantra: whenever I get there, it is the right time...
By knowing that the basic fundamental of our life is to exist NOW and if being happy and feeling good feels good to you, then aiming for that state of being is always worthwhile. In a sense, being happy and feeling good Now is who we really are.
I am the most important thing in life. Just as you are the most important thing in your own personal life experience. Even simply saying "I Am" and feeling the resonance of that two word statement is of great importance. To simply exist with a life is the most important thing that there could ever be.
Since we are our own personal individual universe, having an experience in these holographic suits of flesh blood and bone, then it would be safe to say that I am the most important thing in life. We experience this Earth with other individuals, but they are only different variations of the reflection of ourselves.
Without the I or the Me, there is nothingness. To have appreciation and gratitude for that fact that we exist is of great value to the emotional state of being.
Paulina put in very nicely by saying that "Life is the most important thing in life." We can go down the next route of all the variations of beliefs and feelings, but without the ever loving gift of life, none of that other stuff would even exist.
What do the majority of humans fear the most? It would be safe to say that most humans fear death. They fear non-existence because they aren't sure what will happen after they lose the all important thing called life.
So for me it is easy to say that simply being and existing as a human, and more importantly an eternal loving soul, is without a doubt the most important thing in the definition that I call life. All the other details that help create my life experience come in a close second.
from my perspective life is a test that you have choose to take to experience and better your self to become more perfect. when time will stop and you will only be what you are eternally in the light of truth what will you do? will you like what you are? or will you regret your choice? will you have use those stone to better your self and drop them in their proper place or will you have cast them at other people? if you have cast them at other people that fire will burn you. then you will decide to return in this world to try this test again. the holy father(i am the way the truth and the life) is patient and will offer you another chance to better your self. when you start back in this world with a clean slate what will you do? you have free will after all like all your brother and sister taking this test do you not? will you respect the first and second commandement to not fail your test? or will you fall in your ego and care only about your self and not care about other people? it is always a question of choice is it not? what ever you have created or accommulated in this world for your self is only illusion and will pass away in the end. experience and enjoy.
that i have yet more to understand
it rings right with me
