Who are you? I watched this video and so much became clear.

We can spend our lives trying to be something, someone. We can waste so much energy attempting to develop this image of ourselves that isn't really who we are.

Who are you? Are you, you, or are you a collection of things other people want you to be, of whats expected of you?

This simple and short video, opens a doorway to questions we so seldom ask ourselves.

Who am I really?

If I let go of the fear, and control. Who is it that is left behind?

Don't accept the world as it is by Peter Tatchell

An interview with People of London

“Don’t accept the world as it is. Dream of what the world could be - and then help make it happen.”
 — Peter Tatchell

Make a space
For my body
Dead or whole
Push this side apart
This is what I'm controlling
It's a mold, the inside that I cart

Are you awake?

Video compilation by By Tim Shieff

I'm just a person shuffling through life, I am not really any different from when I was a little kid.

All I wanted really was, that I didnt want that feeling in my stomach that people are being, treated badly. I don't want the feeling that people are being exploited.

People need to live spiritual lives, all of us. I'm a person, and it's good to have access to the infinite consciousness that's available to all people but through the five senses is delineated, keeping us trapped on a material plain.
We think reality is what we can appropriate through the limited instruments of the senses, but reality is of course far beyond that.

Spiritual data is that we don't have the correct instruments to receive it and live primarily in the realm of the senses.

Anything that we're describing through science, we're describing through the prism of the five limited senses. Our eyes can only see between infrared light and ultraviolet light.

Your life is a glass of water.

Think of your life like a glass of water, at the bottom of the glass is mud or sand. The sand or mud is all your hurts, fears, rejections, pains and worries.
When we chant nam myoho renge kyo, we begin to stir the glass of water by chanting, all the stuff at the bottom (which we have been sitting on top of, repressing for years) begins to swirl to the top, a storm appears often.
When we do this we have to face our inner demons, fears and negative self beliefs. It has taken you your whole life to collect all these things, it will take some time to let them go.
The more you chant, the clearer the water will become, but it will take time.
Facing your negative self beliefs by chanting with the Gohonzon, it is like facing a cloudy mirror, the more we chant, the clearer the mirror becomes, becuase we introspect each day and focusing on these fears, working each day to be free of them.
What happens when we polish the mirror every single day? The mirror becomes clearer.
And what do we see in that mirror when it is clear?
Ourselves as we truly are.

Like a bird in a cage. The story of Zay, from boy to girl.

Zay Crawford felt trapped in a boy’s body at a young age. With puberty fast approaching, she got an implant that suppressed the puberty process. This is the story of one family’s journey to acceptance and understanding of their 12 year-old daughter.The Enquirer/Meg Vogel

Do you know any transgender people? What do you know about them and their transformations? 

Most people know very little. When people hear the word transgender images of badly dressed men in women clothes appear in many peoples minds. 

But what many people do not know or understand is that you can be born to appear male or female, but your brain contains the functions and structure of the opposing gender.

Diversity & Inclusion – Love Has No Labels

While the vast majority of Americans consider themselves unprejudiced, many of us unintentionally make snap judgments about people based on what we see—whether it’s race, age, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability. This may be a significant reason many people in the U.S. report they feel discriminated against. Subconscious prejudice—called “implicit bias”—has profound implications for how we view and interact with others who are different from us. It can hinder a person’s ability to find a job, secure a loan, rent an apartment, or get a fair trial, perpetuating disparities in American society. 

The Love Has No Labels campaign challenges us to open our eyes to our bias and prejudice and work to stop it in ourselves, our friends, our families, and our colleagues. Rethink your bias at

What is love?

What is Love by Daisaku Ikeda 
The agonies of love are many and varied. Each person has their own character and personality; they have different backgrounds and circumstances. So there is no set rule that applies equally to everyone.
Whom a person dates is also a matter of personal choice. No one has any right to meddle in your private affairs.
However, I would like to stress at the outset how important it is not to lose sight of pursuing your own personal development.
Love should be a force that helps you expand your life and bring forth your innate potential with fresh and dynamic vitality. That is the ideal but, as the saying "Love is blind" illustrates, people often lose all objectivity when they fall in love.
If the relationship you're in is causing your parents to worry, or making you neglect your studies or engage in destructive behavior, then you and the person you're seeing are only being a negative influence and hindrance to each other. Neither of you will be happy if you both just end up hurting each other.
