Jim Carrey’s witty and brilliant Graduation speech

Here’s the graduation speech everyone is raving about. Jim Carrey in all his glory with the next generation of graduates at Maharishi University of Management. He runs us through finding his passion and how he’s gotten to where he is now. A few of my favorite moments from the video (aside from when he tells us it’s okay to eat our feelings with soft-serve ice cream) are:

“So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality.”

“To find real peace, you have to let the armor go. Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world.”

“The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.”

What If Money Was No Object – Alan Watts

“What If Money Was No Object” is a famous speech recorded by Alan Watts before his passing. Watts was a British philosopher known for his written works and audio recordings. I came across this video years ago and forgot to save it. I’d been searching for it a few years later and to my despair came up with nothing. Turns out, after this video hit 2,000,000 hits it was taken down by Youtube. They have remastered and re-uploaded it.

If you know someone who’s losing sight of their passions hit share and send it their way.
