There are very few people who do not know this guy-Jim Carrey. One the most inspirational person of our generation. A man with a thousand faces. An extraordinary actor, phenomenal performer, an amazing painter and heart touching person. He is everything that we can think of, and maybe he is just better than that.
But the best part of him, according to me, is this quote. He has everything, fame, money nice looks, and extraordinary skills and what not, yet he says this quote. There is something that makes him feel empty from the inside, and the good part is that he realizes it, most of the people do not even realize it.
Why do I like this quote? It is because this is something that I wish for all of my dear ones. It sounds like a curse, but it is a blessing in disguise.
Let me explain, I have had a very simple and easy life, I had best of friends, best parents, best brother, good schooling and everything came easily to me. Everyone loved me, yet, I felt something is missing, something essential, something which completes all this that I have. Luckily for me, the spiritual background that I had in my home, helped me find my way through spirituality and boy what an amazing treasure this is.
Why do I wish this for all my dear ones?
It is simply because I love them. All I want is for them to experience the same joy, realize the ultimate purpose of this life that they have, and I wish they work to realize it. I know it is not easy to let go our desires, but I want them to achieve all that they want, just to find out how underwhelming it all is. They’ll realize the fame, the money, the people the love was not worth the sacrifice that they had given, the price they had paid for it. Once people have it all, and yet when they feel incomplete, that makes them sure and clear of the fact that money, fame or sex just cannot satisfy us. We are spirit souls, material happiness is just meagre for us. I want them to realize this, and go for a service that is high.
And from that feeling, I wish they search something higher, something true, something spiritual, something within, which makes them complete. Jim Carrey had everything and yet he says, that’s not the answer. That shows how unsatisfying are the pleasures of this world, the promises of people here are written on water. And from this realization, comes a thirst to realize something true…
That what I wish for my dear ones, go have it all, just to be disappointed, and then come back to real self, find the peace for your soul. I know that all that I left behind is in good and able hands of God, and I pray every day, that they too turn back to him.
