    pisduck, congratulations! this is something I have wanted - coming from someone with similiar thoughts for a long long time. Because life just got to go on, we may forget or have extra time to plan any other thing.

    The time you started wearing reading glasses is the time you that you may have thoughts of regrets for not having done what should be done.

    Here I have some questions for people who have the sing along notions that contentment is one way to leading a more meaningful, joyful life. To them contentment is living well and fully to the glory of their Gods or Belief Systems.

    1. Does it mean you are free from worry?

    2. Does it mean you are taking all of the "nonese" of life just by sitting down?

    3. Have you discover the most valuable part of contentment?

    4. To certain people contentment is aligning their dreams and aspirations with their realities. True or False?

    5. Have you come to the point that you know what have to be done in life and you have done what needs to be done to be the person that the Almighty originally intended you to be?

    6. The last question, however not the least:
    Did you have the feeling that you know exactly where you are heading for; and that you are quietly working sensibly towards your real aspirations and you are happy that you'll succeed?

    How do you make sure your loved ones don't go through pains?
    Maybe can elaborate a bit more on the type of pains you are referring to.

    1. Do you protect your loved ones by buying them insurance?
    2. Do you protect your loves ones from falling sick, worry, stressed and so on?
    3. Do you shoulder them with spoken words, gifts, money or needs to make them happy?
    4. Do you give them what they want even if it almost impossible from your point of view
    in order to make them happy?
    5. Do you go to the point of sacrifice in order to make your loved ones happy?

    Well, this discussion can be beneficial for the young and growing mind as well if the more
    elderly and experienced folks here want to share their happiness with others.

    Well, like, protect them when they need it, comfort them when they need it, be there for them when they need it. I may even die for them, people may call me foolish, but i think, a death of reason is the most respected death.

    Do we really need so many questions to live well?

    To many people, they don't need the awakening for they
    don't want to.

    These minorities seem not to be able to enjoy socially and
    finding meaning in relationships.

    They can bear cruelty and its consequences and are always ready
    for the onslaught of violence, never care about justice or
    encourages others to enrich their lives.

    Some of these awakenings (questions, so to say) are
    clear indications that there are those who are committed to
    diversity and respect for those with different humane views.
    All they are aiming for is to uphold the equal enjoyment
    of a more secular society, diversity with integrity.

    In fact in the aspired vision humans have the responsibility
    for their lives and the kind of world in which they want to
    live are their and theirs alone.

    That's is fantastic buddy!
    That's also a possible working benefit for society whose
    aims are to maximize joy and individual happiness.

    Your support could be spread so that more human
    efforts working towards this direction could engaged
    in the possibilities of enjoying a good life.

    Congratulations Zaren!

    I think it's to make the world feel like a better place for people and yourselves, everyday. (although I don't always do... )

    The best things in life are always simple. Live a simple life and I am sure you can be happy. Come to CS Kopitiam only when you need to and I am sure you will be even happier. LOL!

    This is not true
    Money is not everything, money does not solve everything, money does not give happiness.
    UNLESS.. we r in a materialistic society..

    Money in itself is neutral
    We need money to live and survive
    But the excessive love of money is the root of evil

    If u spend ur whole life obsessing about accumulating wealth,
    at the end of the day, when we (let's face it, all of us will) r in our deathbed,
    can we bring all our money with us?
    Did we actually take the time to enjoy life in itself, rather than obsessing with money all the time?
    We noe that we don't need to be extremely rich to enjoy life
    We can't enjoy life without any money, true, but having excessive riches will not make people any happier, it's just an illusion

    Let's say u have all the money in the world
    But ur family is messed up
    Ur health is worsening
    Will money have any meaning then?

    The men think that money will give them status,
    and the women will flock to them
    Well, if those money-obsessed women (a lot of them are, in this society) flock to u because of ur money,
    so what happens if ur money is gone one day?
    She gone also
    No offence here, dont mean to be sexist or anything

    I agree that contentment has a lot to do with living a happy life
    Whenever we look at other people who have bigger cars, bigger houses, bigger salaries,
    think about those who have smaller cars, smaller houses, smaller salaries,
    or even worse, no cars, no houses, no salaries

    If we keep comparing upwards, it is endless
    Have a look downwards

    Sorry for the long post,
    just thought to share my 2 cents

    err... all he said is "financial freedom".... nobody said moneyis everything.

    I do agree that financial freedom is the prerequisite. It is nice not to worry about money and be able to do what you want to do.

    interesting topic..
    money is impt. i love money.
    it is the only means to creating a peaceful world.
    if everyone wants more money they will create employment for everyone.
    diff countries depend on money coming in to support their industries and people.
    look at north korea, they shut out the world from coming in.
    they are now suffering for it and can only depend on their nuclear weapons to make demands on the world.

    what is evil is greed.
    so do not fall to it. its what causing the crisis now.

    oh yeah . to live well and fully, know what you want to do and do well, do good.
    never be content with what you have and learn more, see more, create more and give more.

    be content only of the fact that you can do that and many more everyday of your life when compared to less fortunate souls.
