My son, Nick, sent me the link to this wonderful, insightful address given by Jim Carrey to the 2014 graduating class of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, IA. It’s heartwarming indeed to be given a glimpse of the remarkable spirit shining through the smile so many of us have enjoyed over the many years of his acting career.

I salute the light within your eyes, Mr. Carrey, aka “The whole pig.”

“Ultimately, we’re not the avatars we create. We’re not the pictures on the filmstock. We’re the light that shines through. All else is just smoke and mirrors, distracting, but not truly compelling. 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 there is nothing bigger than myself.”

“That peace that we’re after lies somewhere beyond personality, beyond the perception of others, beyond invention and disguise, even beyond effort itself. You can join the game, fight the wars, play with form all you want, but to find real peace, you have to let the armor go.”

 “You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world, and after you walk through those doors today, you will only ever have two choices: love or fear. Choose love and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.”
