I'm a Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Jew, Buddhist, Taoist said the immortal holy man Gandhi, and it is as true in this century as when he said it. There's quite a lot of turmoil in this world of ours, and I'd say that at least a good 65%+ is religiously motivated. So, following this quote, we should--and I try to--live like this quote says.
I am mostly Shinto with a little Taoism thrown in, I am still a student, I can play the guitar, I can juggle, I can solve a Rubik's cube, and most of all, I am a seeker. I seek out wisdom wherever it could be found. Be it in Hinduism or Islam, it's there, along with the Supreme Being that most religious peoples call "god."
People who inspire me were revolutionaries in their day, and may or may not be remembered today. People like Karl Marx, Ho Chi Minh, Henry David Thoueau, and countless others who gave their lives. Gave them to be receved by us as a world. People like Tenzin Gyatso (the Dalai Lama), Gandhi, and that guy who stood in front of all those tanks in Tiananmen Square inspire me and give me hope for the world.
If genius is to be able to grasp the knowable even when no one else reconizes that it is present, then I suspect I'm one of those as well, but I haven't been able to convince the scientific community.
All of these things define me as a person, as a follower, and also as a leader. All of these things are who I am, but I don't worry to much about defining myself, for "Todo saldra en al colada," all will come out in the washing.
