The Value of Life is calculated in various spheres of life like economics, philosophy, science, and others in order to determine the person’s span of living and prevention of death. For example, in economics, the value of life is determined by the cost of living, the average span of living of a person, his earning potential, and the cost involved in the prevention of his death.
From a philosophical or spiritualistic perspective, the value of life is priceless. Yes, you read it right! Your life is invaluable and does not come with a price tag for you and no one. You may think that you are poor or rich or middle-class or upper-middle-class but these are societal categorizations to group people and understand their lifestyles. You are a consumer for a market or various organizations and in order to understand your preferences better so that they can sell you their products or services, they categorize you and you blindly believe in their groupism and spend your life in a thinking pattern.
But spirituality says that life cannot be measured by anyone except the Supreme Power. Life is just life and your value if you want to know then ask the one who loves you the most. Oh, if you don’t have that loved one yet or you think that people around you like your family members or friends don’t consider your value then take a break from them for some days like avoid their calls and do not meet them and see your value in their eyes and behavior when you meet after the break, I am sure you will understand the importance of your life for them.
Now in order to you understanding the value of your life, consider reading the story of a father and a son with a stone. A father gives a stone to a son and tells him to visit various places to understand its value. For some people, it was just a stone, while for some it was a thing, and there is only one person in the museum who understood the real value of the stone and offered him lakhs of rupees in exchange for the same. The son understood the lesson from his father that the real value of a stone was understood only by the one who needed it the most and knew how to put it to utilization to the maximum potential.
Same way, the value of your life you will get to know when you meet the right person who doesn’t measure or calculate your abilities and weaknesses but knows your importance as it fulfills their needs or requirements.
