We humans are very intelligent creatures on earth. The essential thing that discriminates between human and animals is our capacity to think, to understand things. We measure our life by comparing ourselves with some other human, who has a weak capacity, who is slave.
Human life is very important. The lives are measured by human spirit. Humans have some responsibilities towards this nature. We humans are capable to do anything, we are powerful and we have the potential.
Many religions believe that human life’s importance is based on a person’s service to higher power. Life has no significance beyond what someone can accomplish within one’s span of lifetime.
Some humans determine importance of their life based on social status, wealth, while others use age. How to define the importance of life is based on core values.
But when the people think that the individual species is more important than other species then it’s wrong.
A human being can do anything. The determination, courage and self-confidence are important sources of victory for humans. If we don’t have the courage and will power we cannot do anything. Determination is very important thing.
This can be developed from our own inner strength based on our clear realization of the value of human beings.
Human being is more than just material, much more than money. We can feel the importance of life.

There are some of the reasons why human life is important
We are responsible
Humans have responsibilities towards this nature, towards the society where they are living. We have the dominion over the earth. We have the ability either to preserve or destroy the life on earth.
We are the species who can claim to earth’s resources. And thus we have the ability to transform the earth’s resources. Humans have transformed the materials into machines and complex structures.
We can enhance our own existence as well as existence of other creatures.
We can manipulate things and can fly higher. Humans have instinct behavior which makes them important. Also humans have capacity to understand. Other creatures may behave out of the order, they have no awareness and they cannot articulate themselves but humans can.
We have humanity
Just being a good human being defines you. To be a good human being we need to help each other at the time of need.
Humanity means caring and helping each other. It means forgetting selfishness at the times when other needs help. It means extending love to each and every living being on the planet.
Animals can do eating and having fun but we have to do more than that. Even helping a disabled one is humanity.
As soon as we will understand why humanity is needed we will automatically fulfill our purpose in life.
We have the moral values
There are no common criteria about moral values, no orientation. Enormous values are given to material prosperity to man but not to his moral values. Moral values are losing their significance, what we want to know is personal prosperity and bank balance.
We depend on our material welfares. But our source of happiness is our moral values. With moral values we can reach heights. But nowadays we are changing social situation.
We have power
Responsibility and power go and in hand. We create government, without government the stronger one will oppress the weak one. And this is morally wrong.
But animals don’t have that power to think or to recreate anything.
If one knows how to fulfill the birth of humans, then he can achieve liberation. The only thing that binds human being is his/her karma. According to old people it is said that this human body is acquired with great difficulty. Our soul has spent many births to acquire this body.
There is birth after death and death after birth. The law of nature is such that no one can be taken away from this universe.
To make our life important it is needed to be a good human being. There are various ways by which someone can be an ideal person:
- Stay disciplined
- Be punctual
- Respect elders
- Be passionate
- Be friendly
- Complete the task on time

The life which humans have a very special purpose and meaning, sometimes people ruin their life by hat red, by killing themselves and others. Many people think that they will become popular if they have money and a good job. In today’s position of people is determined by their standard, how much people are earning.
