Jim Carrey gave an awesome commencement speech in Iowa

I don’t pay too much attention to Jim Carrey one way or the other, but this was a great story – he stopped by Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa on Saturday to give the commencement speech to the school’s 2014 graduates. He also received an honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Causa, so not too bad a weekend for ol’ Jim.

The speech itself can be watched in full below, but I thought this was a great part:

“The decisions we make in this moment are based in either love or fear. So many of us chose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never ask the universe for it. I’m saying I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it. And if it doesn’t happen for you right away, it’s only because the universe is so busy fulfilling my order.”

Love it.
