Maharishi University of Management (http://www.mum.edu) granted degrees to 285 students representing 54 countries. Jim Carrey gave the commencement address to Maharishi University of Management’s class of 2014.
Actor Jim Carrey wishes more people could realize “all their dreams and wealth and fame,” just so they “could see that it’s not where they’re gonna find their sense of completion.”
Carrey told this to graduates at the commencement ceremony for Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. All students at the school practice Transcendental Meditation, something Carrey does as well.
“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,” Carrey said. ” My soul is not contained within the limits of my body, my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.”
The University Board of Trustees also presented Mr. Carrey with the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Causa, in recognition of his significant lifetime achievements as a world-renowned comedian and actor, artist, author and philanthropist.
