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.”
Carrey is best known as a comedic actor starring in everything from “In Living Color,” “Ace Ventura” and “Dumb & Dumber” to more recent films like “Bruce Almighty” and “Kick Ass 2.”
