“My soul is not contained within the limits of my body. My body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.”
Most of us probably have a picture of Jim Carrey as the mega successful comedian and movie star that’s been in some of the biggest comedies of the last 25 years. And while his performances in “Dumb and Dumber,” “The Mask,” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” are not to be undermined, it’s an inspiring outlook on life and success that fuels Jim Carrey’s purpose on this planet.
Jim Carrey knows that the wealth and fame he’s been afforded makes life easier in many ways, but it’s nothing compared to importance of one’s effect on others. It’s a simple but world-changing message that Jim Carrey wants to share with his fans: how you treat and interact with others is all that matters in life. For Jim Carrey this also means asking the universe for what he wants in life without fear that he might not deserve it and working towards that goal. It’s about having faith in yourself to do what you don’t think is possible.
“Hope walks through the fire and faith leaps over it.”
The inspiring words are part of Jim Carrey’s speech to the 2014 graduating class of Maharishi University of Management. Whether you’re right where you want to be in life at the beginning of 2015 or not even close, the simple advice of choosing love over fear has the power to change one’s perspective and ultimate path in life.
