It not so much about what one of the three is 'most important' but how you accept and adapt to changes within each of the three...

To me, freedom is the most important. You can go long stretches without love or if you are in poor health, and still lead a half-decent life. Freedom is paramount. Because it goes to the very core of one's humanity and perception of oneself.

Freedom is just an illusion, Googs.

Hope your health improves.

Thanks Shads, I just try to go about my daily life the way I am used to. You know, some say love is also just an illusion, not sure about that, but the only one of the three options that is unequivocal, and definitely not an illusion, is good health. Still, the notion of freedom is most important to me, even if it just relative freedom.

Well said. Nail on the head, etc.
