Just figured id answer this from a non-enlightened perspective. You can do anything or whatever you want with life, that isn't the point.. the point of life is being alive itself in each moment, that's the whole of and the entire point.

That's right, and Buddhas know these things by turning their attention to them (going there somehow). You are just going to have face the fact that, according to Buddhist criteria, you are not fully enlightened. It is that simple. Mybe according to your criteria you are, but this is a "Buddhist discussion forum on Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism" so your criteria take a back seat to the criteria of the Arya Sangha.

a buddha is you simple. you said buddha are beyond satisfaction/non satisfaction dualism, so let me ask you a question: what do you want from your life, being something you will never know or being content?
Being enlightened.

I have no idea what you are asking for here. This is a Buddhist forum.

http://www.dhammawheel.com is an exclusively Theravada forum, but you are not likely to get much of a welcome there if you go off proclaiming to be enlightened. Theravadin Buddhist believe there can only be one Buddha in each age, and this age already has its Buddha: Shakyamuni Buddha
