What is Love (music video parody)
I made this video with the intention to help others in a motivational/inspirational form. The clips and music I have used I do not own in most cases. My understanding is that it is in correlation to Fair Right Use, however given that it is open to interpretation, if any owners of the content clips would like me to remove the video I have no problem and will do as fast as possible, please Email me if you have any concerns at Navidbakhsayesh@gmail.com.
These videos are transformative in a positive sense, I take clips from various sources to help create an atmospheric feeling that will help people in hard situations in their life.
I also do not wish to use the heart of any peice of the work that would perhaps decrease the market value of the original content, if anything I hope to promote the content so that people can reach out and subsequently increase the market value.
Lastly these videos are to educate people in an entertaining fashion. Given these are very short videos the short parts I use within them act as a catalyst to further reading.
Help us caption & translate this video!
I want to give a little perspective to people who are skeptical of this video. There are many people that comment saying this is BS or just some new age nonsense. I can respect your perspective and how subjectively you have come to that conclusion. But here are the facts, I was 19 years old when I did this edit, I was editing for fun and Absolute was in its early stages with not that much of a following. I watched the commencement speech and I was incredibly inspired by it. So by using the power of editing I wanted to create something that would help bring out the emotion even more. I have no intention to sell an ideology or to make you believe something. This is just an edit I did nearly 1 and a half ago for fun. If you take good from it, great, if you don't please leave constructive feedback as to how I can improve in the future. While the majority is positive, I just wanted to address the very few that have issues with the edit.
+maryann Hope I can't seem to find my comment. If you happen to know how to find it i would appreciate if you would reply to it or send me it as i haven't seen it since i wrote it haha.

I enjoyed this video & love how you put it together. This is the first of many I Hope! Believe in yourself, you are doing a good job not only by making it but also because your "words to Eleanor" & many more like myself who are looking forward to more young people as yourself...Absolutely Well done! Glad you're following your passion!
Peace & Blessings sent from R.I. Gods Speed young man. Hugs!!
Sister, please take care of yourself & stop hurting. You wrote this 2 yrs. ago & it touched my heart. I wish you blessings, peace & love. I also Hope that you're doing much better than when you wrote this comment. What you were facing then, I pray has gotten better. Self hurt/pain is something I know a great deal about. If you ever need a ( sister ) just contact me. Sometimes when your " in hell " talking/texting can help; especially when there's genuine concern for you in an absolute stranger.

Your need for acceptance? That why I clicked on this... I accept me... I'm good... I run towards good daily... The one who know me best know that... The ones who don't... Well..,
I have no need for acceptance by people... I try to help... Be as good as possible and cast out evil... Fly to heaven with my chosen wings... And if people don't accept me for that? I care not... I accept me... I love me... And I know... That's what God wants and that's what I want... The ones who do accept me I cherish... The ones who don't... That does not affect me... I'm too strong for that... Embrace me if you will or cast me out... Cast me out? Then you cast me out of a world that is not that so I kindly leave... Embrace me because your world is like this? I embrace you too...
Having said all that... Even the ones that cast me out... I still care about them... Just not their opinion... I never give up on people or myself...
Be it as it may... Embrace me for trying to help... Or cast me out for trying to help... But one thing I will never stop doing is loving people... Even the ones that cast me out and trying to help...
I don't take it personally... Because that casting out is not my problem but yours because you cast out a helping hand.
This does something to me. I'm fucking up relation after relation, even while I'm writing this.. cause of fear. I'm so desperately looking for acceptance and approval, that it completely numbs me. In stead of taking action, letting go and giving and sharing and growing; I shrink and hide away. I know no one can save me. But one video like this triggers something inside. I have to chose love over everything else.. otherwise, what's the point of it all anyway.
Everyone go do yourselves a favor and go read the Bible. 80% of Hollywood is uneducated morons who live and breathe hypocrisy. "Your need for acceptance can make you invisible?" Really? How profound! You mean getting validation from other people's opinions of you is.. not good for my self confidence?! Tell me more, Jim the wise Jabber.
Seriously, even if you aren't Christian, go read the Bible. Just about every life lesson you need is in that text. People just recycle the lessons and doll it up, then call it their own. Amazing that something that old is still so relatable to so many things today.
He is a very good actor n human being. He had faced many prblms in his life but still he overcome all that. I hav watched his all movies, ace ventura is my fav film. He always motivates me. God bless u sir. i respect u alot. ♥♥♥♥♥
Time is the most precious thing in the world that is my wealth and I spend it with family and friends I just wish I had not spent it on so many people that did not deserve my time so choose wisely on who you spend it on
Thanks Jim Carrey. I'm in life trying to find myself & find my happiness through my course of my life., but I know I gotta stay strong & move forward, no matter the things you go through. Because life is like a chess game sometimes you win & sometimes you loose. It's just the matter of handling the right way.
- God bless.
The effect we have on others is the most valuable currency there is. We are not the pictures on the film stock, we are the light that shines through. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors. Risk being seen in all your glory.
I've been feeling.... Less than what i truly am. Im working hard. Making money. Its just not enough.. Because i know thats not what fuels me. I just want to be worth something to my son and girlfriend. And with this need... I consistently convince myself that i am not doing enough to be enough. I need to shake that feeling. I feel walked on.. Trampled. Worthless to those around me.. Not my girlfriend nor my son... But everyone else. I feel like im looked at as a machine, not a human. And the only thought in there heads the ones who push me to burn out is that: "Well, when he breaks down, we can fill his place, kick him aside and move on... We got what we wanted."
Jim Carrey is an amazing human being there will be a huge emptiness in my heart in my life i grew uo watching his movies and stand up comedy i even saw him live on stage back in the day !!! We love you jim Carrey
Man oh man! I hope your name is in that long list of Pedophile, Jim Carrey, because you'll receive no mercy no compassion.
Till then I'm looking and waiting.
Oh Almost forgot, you made me vomit.

I've listened to this speech a few times now and it has to be the most nonsensical, poorly written, and expressed speech I've ever heard. It has a lot of sayings which sound deep and profound but actually make zero sense. If you want an actual good commencement speech about who and what is truly important in life, I suggest you listen to David Foster Wallace's speech "This Is Water." I feel like Jim Carrey has a lot of wisdom to share but he's just not great at articulating them, which makes sense since he is an actor and not a writer/author.
Jim (et al), I am a unique man on this shithole planet and have decided I can no longer just stand by and watch your suffering. I'm the only one who can say what follows, and it comes from nothing but Love, and it's "impossible", but I love "impossible". Even if you never read this, I have to write it, coz there have to be many in your situation who might read it and miraculously get it. I first have to justify WHY I'm telling you this that I'm even in tears over. There are billions of trash subhuman beings on Earth who are just not worth it. You're not one of them -- you're worth this "crazy" message, and all my Love, coz you're "one of my own", a love angel who's paying the price for his life in a gigantic shithole. Now you're telling little lady interviewers (and everyone else) that they don't exist -- it's true and I get it. But such little ladies and billions of other mental dwarves can never get it. Like me, you have a Soul of Love that'll never quit and disregards all the bullshit. There are love angels and death angels, with the latter in the majority. I came to know the angels 8 years ago, and it's no crap. You're a typical love angel with a Soul of Love who NEVER gives up on love, and is NOT all sweetness and light, but an abrasive and fearless fighter against injustice, ignorance and "universal stupidity". I'm a master of Qualitative Number (re birthdate and names) but I'm not just laying that on you coz I sense you'd be skeptical and regard it as shit. No matter. This is advice going to your Soul, dear man. Step away from your environment coz the evil rubbish in it is affecting you more than ever and, take it from me, you cannot win. Love yourself by moving to another place away from all the soul-sucking tiny minded stupid death or virtual death angels you are fearless enough to face. Don't even make eye contact with them, or speak one word to them, if that's possible. Your peace of mind at all cost is all that matters, and you're one of the few real human beings I know (through your performances and Number). Believe me, love angels whose minds begin to expand through suffering are VERY rare and the most precious beings on Earth. You MUST look after yourself if you are ever to find some measure of peace. An effort to love yourself more might bring an amazing development in the personal love department. "Brother to brother" -- and I'm the only one who can tell you this shit -- if you don't strive I'm gonna figuratively and verbally "kick your ass", which is really what I'm doing right now, but as nicely as I can, coz I have no real diplomacy being a straight shooting speaker of the truth that -- if real truth and not lies or unconscious confusion -- generally disconcerts or elicits scorn from its hearer, as if they heard someone tell them, "There's a blue whale in your back yard!". No one knows the depth of my mind except my incredible wife, who knows of it but can't fathom it. There's no one on Earth who gets me; that's just part of being me. I'm a solitary all knowing bastard who wouldn't have it any other way, and amongst much else I write so much now to preserve my sanity. By the way, I supported you in the Jerry Brown "vaccine Nazi" fiasco. Come on, Jim. It's time for you to respect what you effing are and really wordlessly demonstrate that so-called "people" don't deserve a fart out of your ass. Yours, Daorley Downy. PS Jim, "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing". Is your latest stuff, "rarefied self-depreciation"? It seems it is tragicomic entertainment of shallow rubbish who aren't worth it. Take care not to mock your Self, your greatest treasure that deserves some careful consideration. You have the power to make yourself a show, but some could compare you to Marilyn Monroe, who said she was a joke, and figuratively "painted herself into a corner" by being a puppet of exploitive sex maniacs. Better to have folks laugh with you, not laugh at (and secretly scorn) you as a tragic clown. Nature "abhors" complacency of ANY kind, Jim. Get your act together. It's time for Self-respect and control of The Word. You seemingly understand Self or The True Self. Sacred things not regarded with quiet respect can bite our ass big time. "Fear God", the Bible says.
I think jim carrey is genius comedian .his acting skills in comedy very unique when I try to compare him to jerry lewis I find jim carrey more skilled with his rubber face and chaplin moves. when I try to compare him to Robin william or jonathan winter I see jim more flexible with his unique style .stand up impersonation ,slapstick,black comedy , you name it .
hollywood neglected jim carrey because he is talented canadian who does not have connections .otherwise how you explain hollywood overexposing untalented actors such as adam sandler,jonah hill ,why do i have to watch will ferrell everywhere ,every channel every interview a lots of not funny movies ? what so special about seth rogen ?"horsey laugh"....big deal .
Sometimes you don't have the chance to choose love in life sometimes you will just be able to say maybe tomorrow will be better sometimes you won't have the choice to be in wealth and you wi be poor, in sadness and lost for a few years I think
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
