We all say that life precious. In fact many people think that human life is very precious. Do you think your life is precious? If so why do consider it precious? I think my life is precious because I love to love people around me. I love music. I love humor. I love to be helpful to my sons. I still want to enjoy life to the fullest.Till the last minute of my precious life. How about you?

I do not know whether my life is a precious one or not. If my life is of little use to someone then I consider it a precious one but if it is not at all useful to anyone then i consider it a waste and I am unworth to live

This question is hard to answer. You might think why I say so, Vijayanth. If you look around and also read the news, not just the local news but the world news as well, you will realise how little value has been placed on life and living. If life was precious, not just human life but life in general, then there would be LESS WARS, LESS POLLUTION, LESS CORRUPTION, NO MURDERS, NO HUNTING AS SPORT, NO RAPES, NO INCEST, NO ABUSE OR VICTIMISATION. Corruption and manipulation are rampant among politicians and administrators. Victimisation and abuse goes on within the four walls of the home. Natural cycles and nature which we are dependent on is slowly but surely being eroded and polluted until many important living organisms are extinct and finally humans are going to be extinct as well. From this we can definitely say that life is NOT CONSIDERED PRECIOUS.

No shobha that is not the way to look at it.all these things are happening very rarely. people are living happily most of the time. We just need to realize it acknowledge it that is all. take a casual walk along the seashore with your hubby, visit a place of natural beauty, enjoy a soothing music(I have just posted a music blog, just visit my blog if you have time) A baby's smile, the sound of birds, a good humor, a delicious food, lovely children, their success, recognition.......so many thing can make us happy. You are intelligent. You are very good and kind. Your English is flawless.I enjoyed your responses. Every response for that matter. I do have lots of problems, I have not got what I deserved in life, but my fight continues.... I will never give up. I will at the same time try to enjoy every moment of my life. One man was so worried that he did not have good shoes until he saw a man who had no legs....cheer up shobha.

Yes, I do go into depression at times when I begin to think of the unfairness and mistreatment going on in the world today. Probably I am an idealist wishing for an ideal world. Probably you are right about looking at life from a better perspective. My daughter is doing pretty well in school and God has been extremely kind to me and my family. Maybe I should just look at life from my angle more often and forget what is happening around me which happens to be outside my control. Thanks for dragging me out of the dumps, friend.

Ya, sure life is soo precious. Everyone in this world has a job to be delivered. Its the pain of parents to get us into this beautiful world. The sole in us is never ours. Till we grow up, to a matured man or women, or till we get married, belongs to our parents. Then it belongs to our life partner who lend their life to us for this life time. Thus our life is never ours. Its the belonging of our loved ones. Thus life is always precious. Taking care of our life is very very important. Not for the sake of us, but for our loved ones.

My dear brother, Life is precious becoz we only live once here on earth,the second life is our choice where it is to be(heaven or hell). I consider life as a precious gift from God,becoz i was given the chance to experience the life that i am enjoying now. Maybe the kind of life that i am having is not the kind of life that is perfect for other people.Yet,i am still thankful to have been given a chance to live. Happy living my dear brother

My life is precious to me for one certain reason.If anything is given to me by anyone then it is definitely precious because the giver has done it on his/her own it is a gift.Similarly God has made me the way I am and given me countless Blessings. So, this life given to me by God is definitely precious.

Life is so precious because there will never be another one like you or me. God never created two alike. That is why my life is precious. There will only be me in this world and there will never be another me. That is why I celebrate life.

LIfe is precious for me because i still have a family. My body is useful. I have friends. I still have job, I meet different people. Problems motivate me and someone makes me inspire to live. Life is precious, our family love us. we live for the reason that God want us to experience life with freedom. God wants us to share the beauty of his creation, the sea, the land, mountains, trees, plants, the sky, the moon, the stars, our brains and knowledge. We create things by our knowledge. God created animals and its kind to be our pets and source of foods. There are so many things we should do while living and we should make most of it. When you are feeling boredom, just look everywhere you will understand why life is so precious. all things and humans on earth now is useful for each other that is why life is precious.

hi vijayanths, definitly life is very precious for us..now a days everybody in our life.. Our society today places particular value on people who can contribute. People are valued if they make money and spend it. People are valued if they have no special limitations to slow them or others down. Anyone that falls outside the bounds of what our society defines as “normal” is often looked upon, not as a blessing, but a liability. To enjoy our life to consider it precious without any worries, be happy always.

yes neelima the world respects only the people who have money-not the people who have good hearts.Still we need to enjoy every second of our lives as life is too precious to ignore.

Life is precious like a time that you cannot turn back once it already passed by. Life is very precious to waste it for nothing. We should live life to the fullest, meaning that we should not let any opportunities to pass us by. Love the life we had right now, and learn to appreciate every moment of it. Because life is so precious to waste, I value every seconds of my life. I enjoy every achievements that I have; I keep my self interested in everything as if it was my last day to live; I nurture my spirit with strength from our God above; and I never hesitate to try new things that could enhance more my skills and talents.

its only thirst that can tell the real significance of water .ask a dying person what life means to him/her.its precious as every moment counts.each moment which passes by cannot be recovered with any amount of money and riches.good or bad life is life only...precious at any cost.

My life is precious because God has given a human birth to me in this birth. I can do good deeds, spend my precious time on the thought of Almighty, get rid of my demerits of past births and finally go and join God's county without further births. This I can do only in human birth. Hence my life is precious.
• India
22 Dec 09
Hello buchi my best wishes to join God's county. But We need your presence in this world for a very looong time. I will take more births to join God's county I think. be there to invite me when I come after several births.

I do believe my life is precious... Everybody's life is precious. This is only once chance we get to live and learn. And life is the greatest teacher, and we all can learn from our experiences in life so many lessons. But how many of us think that it' precious and make an effort? That's the question. We must love everything in life. That's right... I go with you, I love everything. I love spiritualism, I love God, I love music, I love art, reading books, I love theatre, and sure, I love going out with friends and love being helpful to anybody who needs help. Life is precious for all, and we must try to save another life, and help others live also. We must grow as many trees as possible and not disturb animals and birds also. Live and let live.... That's my motto.

Yes cobra that is a great response from you as usual. I admire your knowledge friend.First let us be kind to the humans. Then the next step is love towards animals and plants.... that way your soul matures and develops into a matured soul. May be when it attains full maturity then there will be no need for another birth. The soul can start living with the supreme power, God Universe whatever.

Hi. I believe that my life is precious because I have touched the lives of the many around me in my own simple ways. I am able to continuously provide financial and moral support to my parents and younger brother and sisters. I was able to contribute/impart my knowledge and abilities to my former bosses, workmates and colleagues. My life has been borrowed from the Creator - making it extra special and precious. I shall put it into good use while I can...

Hi! If you meet someone to share it with, Yes, the life is precious, but if you didn't it is not. I can say for me, life is not precious, just because I have the feeling, that nobody understands me and cares about me. Yes, I have family and girlfriend, but sometimes I feel very alone, sitting at home at think about the things I love to do, and about that, that nobody wants to now how I feel or what I want. Maybe it sounds a little bit selfishly, but for me it isn't. So that's why I don't think life is so precious! There is also pain in it!

dear nautilus, remember there are millions and millions of people who don't have food to eat, place to sleep, dresses to wear and people to care for them. But still they are living. They are hoping that things will change and get happiness. I bet your life is precious, just realize it and start living every second of it usefully and happily.

You know I didn't used to think my life was really precious until I went through this amazing seminar and it really showed me that I am precious. Why? Because there is no one else like me. Yes, there are people who like the same things I do such as morals, hobbies, etc. There will be people who have personalities like mine. But in the end I am the only me there is. And here is an interesting thought. Most people find young children about the age of 3 or 4 at the prime age of innocence. And most people find that child very, very precious. But what we all tend it forget is we were there once. We were once the 'precious' child. We didn't lose that we just misplaced that part of us. I am a 'precious child' even if I am 20 years old. And my life is precious because I know I am teh best I can be. I love and care about those around me and I am slowly learning that its okay be myself.

All life is precious to the person who has it. After all, each person's life is one of a kind and can't be replaced. Life was a gift from God, and it hurts me when I hear of people who take away this gift from someone else. We all need to hang onto every minute we've been given and appreciate this precious gift from God.
