    Unless, objects attached to me were made invisible at will as well as me being invisible at will, I would rather be able to fly than be invisible, because me being able to fly would enable me to be so much more mobile. I'd also be able to have so much fun soaring above traffic and raining down upon people I did not like.

    Turning invisible would be very convenient if I forgot the toilet paper or forgot a towel. I just slip past unnoticed.

    How about just being invisible to technology? That would be cool, too; except when I was trying to get my drivers license. Then it would be very inconvenient.

    Flying is great but watch out for bugs, birds, bats, planes, sudden winds and drones. Yikes!

    I would fly. I would like to feel the wind upon my face while moving through clouds and watching the ground far below, and enjoy the feeling of being free.

    You do realize, I hope, that if you had the ability to be invisible you would not have to be invisible 100% of the time. Unless you're assuming that you would have to run around naked, in which case I would advise you not go out at all. You wouldn't want to accidentally step on a piece of broken glass or into some animal feces when you're not wearing protective footwear.

    That's the problem with siddhis, powers. You can easily get into trouble if you start using them.

    I suspect flying would more likely impress the ladies. :D

    Turning invisible would likely creep them out.

    Invisibility, since humans aren't generally found free-flying around in the sky and it would likely attract a lot of undesired attention.

    I don't know to be sure, but based on the story of Milarepa there can be motives such as revenge. According to what I read, he used powers to get revenge on relatives for their acts. He repented of his dark deeds and became known as "Tibet's greatest yogi". So there can be all kinds of motives including the desire to show off:

    There's a short sufi story about the attitude to such things:

    One day Hasan AlBasri saw Rabia near a lake. He threw his prayer rug on top of the water and said: "Rabia come! Let us pray two rakat here."

    She replied:"Hasan, when you are showing off your spiritual goods in the worldly market, it should be things which your fellow men cannot display."

    She then threw her prayer rug into the air and flew up onto it saying: "Come up here, Hasan, where people can see us." Then she said:

    "Hasan, what you did, fish can do, and what I did, flies can do. But the real business is outside these tricks. One must apply oneself to the real business."

    I've already flown (technically, I fell really, really fast). I'm not sure I need or would want to do that all the time.

    If I'm invisible and cut myself, how would I know where to put the band-aid? I mean, I could bleed out without I or anyone else being able to figure out from where. So I don't want that, either.

    What other abilities are you peddling?

    I think if I could fly I might use that power to attract people to my message then try to convince them that living lives of harmony and growing compassion would be good. I would get them in with the wow aspect but then we could use it to help make the world a better place. In terms of going invisible I think that might be a fun tool for people watching and seeing what they are up to. The temptation to steal would be there but I think I could just use that to make me a better person by proving I could resist the temptation. Would be fun for playing tricks sometimes though but that seems like an inappropriate use of my wonderful powers lol.

    I'd want to fly up into a tree and piddle down on people so they'd think it was raining on a cloudless day. Guess that makes me a bad person.

    Yes. I'd think a bird had a lot of creek water at first.
