    Let's see... I have a few options...

    1. Filthy rich and surrounded by beautiful women who worship the ground I walk on

    2. Dirt poor, but surrounded by beautiful women who worship the ground I walk on

    3. Moderatly well off... and surrounded by beautiful women who worship the ground I walk on

    4. Doing what I love for the rest of my life, but never having it become routine to me... being respected for what I do and for my experience and skill, while also finding true serenity and inner-peace, to the point that the money (whether good or bad) doesn't even matter... Living my life My Way and never ever having to sell out (or losing my morals to the point that I sell out)... and of course..... still surrounded by beautiful women who worship the ground I walk on

    True happiness for me is being independent, following my own drummer, being creative, no matter how. To make it complete there is my husband whom I cherish beyond words. Laughing and looking at the world with all its foolishness and not getting upset. Having a comfortable life without expecting too much, being content with the way I live -- Datura

    It means living a passionate life with all the pain and joy involved. In the end, living a hedonistic life is not what life is about.

    Which religion we talking about... the one with the crusaders and the templars??...

    BUT I'm going to follow the recent advice of a freind of mine on SitePoint and shut the hell up now, because there's no point starting this debate up.

    Have a nice day

    No, those guys were simply responding to a war they did not start. A war that was forced upon them.

    It was kinda like, was the United States justified in attacking Japan after Pearl Harbor?

    The crusaders and the templars were doing what the US did after being attacked. It was a justified war, that had they not fought the civilized world would have fallen.

    Kinda like what's going on today.

    Oh, but in the end this religion in question will cease to exist.
    So, all ends very well for those that love freedom

    If you enjoy freedom in this life...you're going to have to fight for it because there's always those that want to put everyone into bondage.

    It's the classic age old struggle between good and evil.

    1. To start my own business in the field that i love. (no more stupid bosses telling you what to do)
    2. To have a healthy and happy family.
    3. Trust-worthy friends.
    4. Financially stable (not wealthy nor poor).
    5. Be respected for the person i am and the knowledge i possess (in the future), not for my money or whatever else.
    6. Help correct the misunderstandings of some ignorant (and arrogant) patriotic people from some country about my religion, which happens to be the fastest growing religion (or at least second fastest).
