    Which one will you choose and why?

    a) A life striving for the downtrodden people
    b) A life to realize yourself and divinity, simply a spiritual life
    c) A life to live every second happily with your beloved ones
    d) A life to prove your talents, making ng money, going around the world...
    e) A life without caring for anything and living happily

    Wanna know people's minds

    This is quite a question and will probably change over time.  When young we want to change the world.  With age comes the realization that the only thing we can change with any certainty is ourself.   You have listed options, e.g. a) b) et cetera.   But if you go for b) and you keep it up long enough, the chances are this 'spiritual life' will lead you into some sort of 'service.'  That is, you will feel inclined to help the world by helping others.  It seems to be a natural correlations to 'spiritual awakening.'

    I think the last option: e) is almost impossible.   Not caring for anything means not caring for yourself either.   But I'm thinking you mean a self-centred, ego-centric life where you care not for the opionions, let alone the welfare of others.   If this is the case, the outcome will probably be bitterness and disillusionment in later life.   

    If you go for option b) the chances are you will find yourself embracing a) b) c) and d)   You'll love people.  You'll love and appreciate your family.  You'll develop your talents and skills so you can use them to greater effect.  And that might even include making plenty of money so you can help more people.

    So, as I said, the choices are likely to change over the years.  But there's really nothing to stop you grabbing and holding and using all the options, including occassional periods enjoyment simply for yourself.    The occassional changes of focus will make for a more all-rounded person.
