Jim Carrey‘s dad would have been a great comedian. As he is a well know actor and comedian, known for being highly energetic, known for roles such as Mask and Man on the Moon is Dad would been just as funny. He presented an emotional speech over the weekend to students at the Iowa Maharishi University of Management. He was giving encouragement to them to follow their dreams and nor to take the ”safe” option in life. He said:
”So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality.
”My father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an account. ”When I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job, and our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you could fail at what you don’t love, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
The fifth old had received an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Caus degree at the ceremonywas also explaining money and fame is not also the answer to people’s problems, and how Transcendental Meditation has helped him focus on what really matters in life.
According to www.TM.org, he added:
”I’ve often said that I wish people could realise all their dreams and wealth and fame, so that they could see that it’s not where they’re gonna find their sense of completion. ”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 realise that there is nothing bigger than myself. My soul is not contained within the limits of my body, my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.”
