Jim Carrey: The meaning
Jim Carrey delivered the commencement address at the Maharishi University of Management in 2014. The above video uses parts of that speech plus footage from movies he appears in, to deliver a powerful message about how to serve the world. How doing something that lights you up provides that which the world needs.
"To find real peace, you have to let the armor go. Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world. Don't let anything stand in the way of the light that shines through this form. Risk being seen in all of your glory."
Watch the full speech and read the transcript of this amazing message.
There are some truly enlightened lines of wisdom. I had no idea Jim Carrey was such a spiritual guy.
"Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart, and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart. My choosing to free people from concern got me to the top of a mountain. Look where I am — look what I get to do! Everywhere I go – and I’m going to get emotional because when I tap into this, it really is extraordinary to me — I did something that makes people present their best selves to me wherever I go. I am at the top of the mountain and the only one I hadn’t freed was myself and that’s when my search for identity deepened."
He's also a pretty wild and amazing painter.
