Jim Carrey’s 2014 Commencement Speech At Maharishi University
Jim Carrey is easily the funniest guy in the world, as far as I’m concerned, but he’s also an incredibly inspirational man for thousands of people, and an extremely intelligent man as well. Maharishi University asked Jim Carrey to give an honorary commencement speech for this very reason, and the words he had to say are amazing, and will definitely inspire me to be better in all paths of life… while simultaneously laughing and having a wonderful time being me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do when I watch it.
Even the parts meant to be a joke have incredible insight into life. Granted, it’s more obvious within his serious moments, but his speech is filled with amazing goodies for you.

The university really exemplifies who Carrey is as a person, and the values of the school aligns with Jim’s philosophy so much, that he’s even donated a wonderful painting to the school, which he explains took him “thousands of hours to complete” The story behind the painting is just as breathtaking as the rest of the speech.
