hmmmmm. It changes daily how important it is to me. We dont have all the answers but I would rather die trying to gain more insight then die blindly and be doomed.
It is important when I think of the ultimate purpose to life and where I am going. Throughout my life I have gone through times of feeling like I truly understand what I believe and times when I question everything- so much that I give up on religion - that its a madeup thought. But then there are moments when I get chills because I FEEL God. Like the day my grandfather passed away. On his deathbed he looked straight up and had peace and died with a smile across his face. Moments like that I KNOW there is something beyond this life.
