Jim Carrey – Inspiring Commencement Speech Maharishi University



Jim Carrey – Inspiring Commencement Speech Maharishi University.

Actor Jim Carrey wishes more people could realize “all their dreams and wealth and fame,” just so they “could see that it’s not where they’re gonna find their sense of completion.”

Carrey told this to graduates last weekend at the commencement ceremony for Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. All students at the school practice Transcendental Meditation, something Carrey does as well.

“Like many of you, I was concerned about going out into the world and doing something bigger than myself, until someone smarter than myself made me realize that there is nothing bigger than myself,” Carrey said. ” My soul is not contained within the limits of my body, my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.”

    How can anyone clap at the statement "Made me realize that there's nothing bigger than myself". This has a very pagan vibe to it and people are just getting swept into the general goodness of the speech.

    Who else is watching this clip thinking about the "lifeline exercise" from Donnie Darko? Where the teacher named Kitty Farmer says, "Fear and love are the deepest of human emotions".

    His words are matching with the concept of Zeitgeist documentary. Interesting and significant speech.

    Nicely put together but not anywhere near as impactful as watching the full speech. I needed a cigarette and a snickers after the full speech (guess that's funny if you live in the UK), basically I got emotional.

    LIAR LIAR!!!!
    I'm not talking about the famous comedy of Jim Carrey, but about the Cardinal Jaime Ortega who to testify that in Cuba there are no political prisoners, is overlooking that: six things God hates and yet a seventh detestable to him: haughty eyes, LIAR tongue, hands that sheds innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, FALSE WITNESS THAT SPEAKS LIES, and he that soweth discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:19)It is not true what has long been said, because as Cuban he knows that the government do what suits him in the inmate's file. They have people convicted of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, contempt for authority and even embezzlement, which only explains how opponents of the regime end with the status of prisoners communes; It is the shameless chain that binds  dissidents with links insufferable.So I have no doubt that if the international community and the Cubans did not something ten years later, if you do not insist on a hunger strike, activists continue in prisons by any of the crimes charged in the tangled autocracy who have the upper hand, where the Freedom of Speech and Press are a utopia, even as usual to wait long months or years to see if people forget what happened, and then condemn them … and  the next I know it by heart.
    .Hopefully that does not happen with Zaqueo Báez Guerrero, Ismael Boris Reni, or with Maria Josefa Acon Sardinas; and Jaime Ortega, finally open his  Bible in Proverbs 6:19, for his interpretation of the role LIAR, LIAR, provokes outrage, but does not is funny.

    I rarely post comments, but it's a must for Jim Carrey's speech. This one ROCKS. He is absolutely right in what he is saying. It's a truism of the soul. It's not only very sage advice, it's inspiring. Follow your path leading with love…and let the Universe provide. Thanks Jim, you are AWESOME.

    "We choose our path based on fear disguised as practicality"

    Dude. Take your own advice and quit doing JUST that.

     “College life can be downright detrimental. Sleep deprivation, a bad diet, and binge drinking can lead you to memory loss, alcoholism, and even Alzheimer’s.” from: “The Perils of Higher Ed.” , article in Psychology Today, 2005. Maharishi University of Management has a different approach, however. mum.edu
