Jim Carrey's Commencement Speech

This was such an inspiration. If you know anything about Ayurveda, you'll get the references about waking up during Pitta. Hahahaha

Favourite quotes:
Life doesn't happen to you, it happens for you.  

Sometimes I think that's the only important thing, really. Just letting each other know we're here; reminding each other that we're part of a larger self.

You can spend your whole life worrying about ghosts, worrying about the pathway to the future, but all there will ever be is what's happening here, and 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 ask the universe for it. I'm saying I'm proof that you can ask the universe for it . . . . You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.

Beware the unloved because they will eventually hurt themselves or me.

It can be rough out there, but that's okay because there's soft serve ice cream, with sprinkles.

How will you serve the world? What do they need that your talent can provide? That's all you have to figure out . . . the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is. Because everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart.

I did something that made people present their best selves to me.

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 in this form. Risk being seen in all of your glory.

Our eyes are not just viewers, they're projectors and they're running a second story over the picture that we see in front of us all the time. Fear is writing that script. And the working title is "I'll never be enough."

[Let] the universe know what you want and work toward it while letting go of how it comes to pass.
