Jim Carrey – Meaning in Life (Transcript)
I watched the affect of my fathers love and humor and how it altered the world around me, and I thought, that’s something to do. That’s something worth my time.
When I was about 28, after a decade as a comedian, I realized one night in LA that the purpose of my life has always been to free people from concern, just like my Dad. I did something that made people present their best selves to me wherever I go.
How will you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide? That’s all you have to figure out.
I can tell you from experience, the affect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.
Because ultimately, we are not the avatars we create. We are not the pictures on the film
stock. We are the light that shines thru. All else is just smoke and mirrors, distracting but not truly compelling.
That piece that we are after, lies somewhere beyond personality, beyond the perception of others, beyond invention of the skies, even beyond effort itself.
You can join the game, fight the wars, play with form all you want… but to find real peace you have to live beyond your ability.
Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world. Don’t let anything stand in the way of the light that shines thru the form. Risk being seen in all of your glory.
I have often said that I wish people could realize all their dreams, wealth and fame so they can see it is not where you are going to find your 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 realize that there is nothing bigger than myself.
Our eye are not viewers, they are also projectors, that are running a second story over the picture that we see in front of us all of the time. Fear is writing that script. The working title is “I’ll Never Be Enough.”
It’s just a matter of making a choice of perceiving challenges as something beneficial, so that I can deal with them in the most productive way.
You will come up with your own style, that’s part of the fun.
“Life doesn’t happen to you, life happens for you.”
“You only ever have two choices, Love or fear, choose Love, and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart. All what will be left of you is what was in your heart.”
“My soul is not contained within the limit of my body, my body is contained within the limitless of my soul.”
“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance at doing what you do love.”
“Relax and dream up a good life.”
You can spend a whole life imagining ghost, worrying about the pathway to the future, but all there will ever be is what is happening here and the decisions that we make in this moment which are based on either Love or fear.
So many of us choose our lives 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 am saying, I am the proof that you can ask the Universe for it.
