Jim Carrey delivers inspirational speech at Maharishi Unversity of Management

June 15, 2014 Jim Carrey

While Jim Carrey is widely known for his comedic antics, few know about how profound and inspirational he can be. Jim Carrey was recently invited to the Maharishi University of Management to deliver the commencement speech to the graduating class of 2014. He delivers an amazingly inspirational speech reminding the students to follow their hearts and that the most important currency each of us have is the ability to influence the lives of others.

Some of the best quotes of his speech are as follows:

"I used to think Jim Carrey is all that I was. Just a flicking light, a dancing shadow, the great nothing masquerading as something you can name. Seeking shelter in caves and fox holes dug out hastily. An archer searching for his target in the mirror, wounded only by my own arrows, begging to be enslaved, pleading for my chains, blinded by longing and tripping over paradise."

"There is a huge difference between a dog that is going to eat you in your mind, and an actual dog that is going to eat you. That seems like no big deal, but many never learn that distinction..."

"Now fear is going to be a player in your life. You get to decide how much. You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about the pathway to the future. But all there will ever be is what is happening here and the decisions we make in this moment, which is based in either love or fear. So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dared to ask the universe for it. I'm saying that I'm the proof that you can ask the universe for it. Please ask. And if it doesn't happen for you right away, it's only because the universe is so busy fulfilling my order."

"You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love."

"As someone who has done what you are about to go and do, I can tell you from experience, the effect you have on others is the most valuable current there is."

The University Board of Trustees also present Jim Carrey with the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Causa, in recognition of his significant lifetime achievements as a world-renowned comedian, actor, artist, author and philanthropist.
