2014 MUM Graduation Jim Carrey (B-roll)

I am elated and truly truly truly excited to be present and fully
connected to you at this important moment in your journey.
I want to thank the Trustee’s the Administrators, the Faculty of M.U.M. for creating an institution worthy of
Maharishi’s ideals of education. As well as enabling the
students through Transcendental Meditation. and ancient Vedic knowledge to slack off
twice a day for an hour and a half And to the Graduating class of 2017 Minus Three… Ya didn’t let me finish Congratulations Yes give yourself a round of applause please You are the vanguard of knowledge and consciousness. A
new wave in a vast ocean of possibilities on the
other side that door there’s a world starving for new ideas new leadership
I’ve been out there for thirty years, she’s a wild cat! She’ll rub up against a leg in power until
you pick her up and start petting her and then out of nowhere she’ll swat you in the face you could spend your whole life
imagining ghosts worrying about the pathway to the future
but all there will ever be is what’s happening here in the
decisions we make in this moment which are based in either love or fear
so many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality what we really want seems impossibly
out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never dare to
ask the universe for it I’m saying I’m the proof that you can ask the
universe for it. please and if it doesn’t happen for you right
away it’s only because the universe is so busy fulfilling my order my father could have been a great comedian
but he didn’t believe that was possible for him so he made a conservative choice instead he got a safe job as an accountant and 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 can
fail at what you don’t want so you might as well take a
chance doing what you Love I can tell you from experience the
effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is And that’s when my search for identity deepened. I wondered who I’d be without my fame who would I be
if I said things that people didn’t want to hear or if I defied their expectations of me what I showed up to the party without my
Mardi Gras bat mask and refused to flash my breasts for a handful of beads I’ll give you a moment to wipe that
image out of your mind But you guys are so ahead of the game you already
know who you are in that piece that piece that were after lies somewhere beyond personality. Your
need for acceptance can make you invisible this world don’t let anything stand in the way of
the light that shines through this form risk being seen in all of your glory this painting is big for a reason it’s
called high-visibility it’s about picking up the light and
daring to be seen I was I worked on this for so long weeks weeks like a madman alone on a
scaffolding and when I was finished one of my friends
said this would be a cool black light painting. So I started over WOOO As far as I can tell it’s just about
letting the universe know what you want and working toward it while letting go of how it
comes to pass when I say life doesn’t happen to you it happens for you, I really don’t know
if that’s true I’m just making a conscious choice to perceive challenges as something
beneficial so that I can deal with them the most productive way. You’ll come up
with your own style that’s part of the fun. Like many have 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 you are ready and able to do beautiful
things in this world and after you walk through
those doors today you will only ever have two choices: Love or Fear choose love and don’t ever let
fear turn you against your playful heart.
Thank you so much. Jai Guru Dev. I’m so honored. The board of trustees of Maharishi University
of Management has with a great sense of honor and a great joy conferred upon Mr. Jim Carrey the degree of doctor of fine arts. thank you again so much Bevan and M.U.M. Everybody I’m overwhelmed I’m astounded at this honor
You really truly seem full and open and alive and I I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to be in the same room. Thank you
so much! I love you all so much.
