From memory, the legendary Jim Carrey has always been one of the funniest comedian, a little weird and over the top, but very funny, all the time.

But there is another side to this man, his true human spiritual side, which he revealed and inspired the young graduates, in the most entertaining way, with his generous choice of words, voice and context references, at the commencement address at the 2014 MUM Graduation.

How I wish I could hear such words of wisdom on my university graduation. But it is not late to hear about them now and learn about the power of love and how this could trump fear, and transform your life and those you interact with too.

Share with you some quotes that received the most applause and if you find them resonating with you, take a look at the video too:

“Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in 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.”

“Your job is not to figure out how it’s going to happen for you, but to open the door in your head and when the doors open in real life, just walk through it. Don’t worry if you miss your cue. There will always be another door opening. They keep opening.”

“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.”

 

Remarks: Video length is about 26 mins, but feels like 5 mins
