I'd have alot more freedom to accomplish alot more things... I'd be able to acquire real estate at much more convenience, open up businesses for animals and other services I feel strongly for, travel to Europe to reunite with my old friends in Holland. Most likely I'd end up retiring in the olde beauty of Europe, and enjoying Life and creating forms of beauty and such.

But I can still do most of that as of now, although with a lot more work or time involved, or lack thereof. :wink:

Care to elaborate? Sounds interesting...

I'd buy a life's supply of KOOL cigs! I'm rich, BIOTCH! :lol:

Actually I'd just buy a cozy house in the countryside so I could be left alone to grow my favorite herbs and spices....

Well, winning the lottery would be equivalent to gaining the physical strength of the World's strongest man; I would have more energy to do more things. That is essentially what money symbolizes: energy. It is an energy tool, it can be used to build and create, or it can be used for demolition and destruction - it is neutral. With more energy, I would be able to accomplish high-energy movements and achievements like building/acquiring world-class hotels/apartments, or fulfilling a business/service to the public that is lacking in whatever areas.

If you?re asking why I?d choose real estate and animal-businesses; the answer: Real estate is fun, secure and highly rewarding and satisfying with a lot of freedom for creativity [interior design] and animals because I am a huge animal lover.

i think this is probably what i would do as well... although i know after spending a few years just "relaxing", i would be eager for some sort of "action" in my life... so then i would probably start doing work for the World Social Forums...

Yes if a person wins that much money and did not give to the service of others they would end up poisoned and corrupt by the cash.

Power misdirected is a killer of the soul.

K how much money? The lotto is weak sometimes, what if you had to split 3 mil 6 ways? By the time you finished paying taxes you'd only have like 300k, a nice nest egg, but not any huge wealth. Just comfort. Fuck that, if I ever win like 10 mil I'm gonna spend like half of it on bullshit. I would never give anything to any stupid rip-off fucking charity either, I'd hand out cash in the park before I did that. :grin:

Definitely. I wouldn't just be relaxing in my cozy country home, growing some herbs, smoking some herbs, and what-not. I would undoubtedly devote much of my time to bettering society, trying to make right some of the hainus injustices made in the name of liberty.
Taking a quote from Dave:

"...and slowly by we float and I wonder, how long it will be. And maybe then was when I opened up and realized, the most I can do while I'm here now is not if they leave it as I found you...."

I'd donate half of it to organizations, some like NORML, others (most of the half) for environmental purposes, and maybe a couple for the good of humankind. Then I would get a modest house, buy lots of forest land, and do lots of drugs

it would currupt me further. and destroy how far ive come spiritually. read  Siddhartha . by Norman Hesh (i think) the love of money is the root of all evil.  being content with little now, will ensure having more in the future. wealth is not limited to money.... would winning all that money make you a better person??? happier??? NO,NO.    what can you take with you in death? 1,000,000$ nope. but i bet that 1,000,000$ would buy alot of bad karma which does go with you.

and you all dissapoint me. :frown: what good is $$$$ if you dont have the wisdom to spend it....? :ooo:

Sadly, it would probably reinforce my lazy selfish ways. Which is something i want and don't want at the same time. So I don't know.

- purchase small south pacific island (~$400k US)
- grow fuits/vegetables, herbs, marijuana, ect.
- donate most of remaining money to charities or random people of my choice
- invite others with similar spiritual goals to my island
- live there, practicing meditation, spiritual practices contantly (~5 years)
- come back to society and attempt positive global change
- if that fails, return to island - attempt transcendance, die.

:smile:

Basically, it would allow me to dedicate a lot more time to spirituality :laugh:
