Jim Carrey’s Commencement Address

In 2014, actor Jim Carrey delivered the commencement speech at the Maharishi University of Management. Given the performer’s reputation in comedy, the speech was no doubt hilarious and entertaining. But Jim Carrey is also deeply spiritual, and he delivers great lines of encouragement and inspiration. He has three main points in the foundation of his speech: self, fear, and choice.

“The decisions we make in this moment are 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 ask the universe for it.”
