Today, we’re talking about Jim Carrey…
He’s been in the media a lot recently with some outlandish things he’s saying. I have some quotes for you and we’re going to talk about how these things can help you stay sober.
What many people are seeing is that up here on a certain plane, this is the plane that most people live on where they’re dealing with life as it comes – at them acting as if life is happening to them, wondering who they are.
How do these things keep us stuck?
Down here, there’s something else. We have to listen for what people are not saying.
What are they not saying?
Up here – he says stuff and people say this seems crazy!
Why is he talking about who I am and everything? This is a successful man!
He’s reached the pinnacle of culture! What gives? What’s going on?
We got to listen for what’s not being said.
How is this going to help keep us sober?
We’re going to look at a few quotes that I took from his recent interviews
I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so that they can see that it’s not the answer.
What’s going on here? What is the deal?
We have Jim Carrey talking about these crazy things – saying What’s going on? Who am I? This is coming from someone who has attained the success so many people think is going to make their life happy. He says I wish everyone would get that, so they could see that it’s not the answer.
So many things you’re looking at that you think are the answer.
We have all this stuff here, and he boils it down to one big thing.
That is the ego or the eye.
You see the ego. The eye is all about what you want to happen. You’ve heard in many things, he says that suffering is a result of the desire and want.
- What do I want?
- What do I desire?
These are all ego things.
Now, there’s two planes that people can live on. You can live from a place of – I want; I desire; what is my status in life? What are the things that are important around me?
It’s all materialistic. it’s all junk. it’s all going to fade.
That brings us to another quote…
Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart.
The only thing you’ll be left with is what’s in your heart.
Is this a madman at the end of a pitiful rope?
Or is it someone who has attained something?
He may see something different and what he’s seeing here is consciousness.
We can be conscious of several things. Your mind is like a lens and you get what you focus on. You could be conscious of what you want, what you desire, what you need and what you lack.
Are we being conscious…
…Of what we need?
…What we desire?
…What we want?
…What we lack?
Or is there something bigger going on?
What is my consciousness?
Right now, you can focus your consciousness on what you don’t want or what you do want or what you feel you need. That is the root of suffering – desire, want, thought attached to the eye.
Another thing that he says is that, if you don’t attack yourself to this. if you start to look at the world as things just happening, not happening to me – because the ego or the eye says “that earthquake ruined my house. That happened to me.” instead of “hey there was just an event and that’s what happened.”
These people are the way they are.
Everything is as it is.
Our ego wants to get involved in everything.
Your ego is going to keep you drunk.
Your ego is going to keep you from being who you are meant to be.
This has nothing to do with your name, your status – the things you you are.
Many people get hung up on the idea of being an alcoholic.
I am an alcoholic and I don’t like this term because I have shown alcoholism. I have participated. The things I’ve done are alcoholism but i, myself am not the sum of the things I do. I am not labeled.
That’s what he’s trying to tell us. I believe that through what he’s saying
is this something that we can learn from?
is there more to life? is there more to what’s going on?
Another quote he says is…
I used to believe that who I was ended at the edge of my skin – that I had been given this little vehicle called a body from which to experience creation.
From the time we’re born, we are taught to believe that our life are existent ends with what we are. Our body or physical sense. The fact of the matter is they are much more. This is why so many people feel like if they didn’t look a certain way, they might as well die. if I didn’t feel a certain way or if I was overweight or whatever. These are not things that are you.
Your body is merely a container for something bigger.
These things aren’t happening to you. it’s just happening in existence.
I discovered a new thing in the lord’s prayer that kind of hit me.
On earth, as it is in heaven.
To me, it means that whatever you take out into the world is what you’re going to draw out – like those days when you’re all yang and no yin. You’re fighting with people inside and you can’t calm yourself down. Suddenly you’re pulled over by the cops, everything goes wrong in the same day because you created it.
if you get heaven within you, it’ll be all around you.
if hell is within you, it’ll be all around you.
IT’S ALL CREATED HERE.
What does he mean by this?
He means his consciousness. I believe he’s speaking about being conscious of heavenly things – I like to think of it as the way everything is meant to be.
Living out of love. if you start from a place of love, your day is gonna go different.
if you start with hell in your mind, you’re gonna have hell in your life.
if you start by thinking everything’s bad, everything’s against me,
everything’s happening to me, then your life is going to go that way.
if you look at things as success or failure on your self, your ego, your person
That is the culture created – then, you’re going to have a hard time.
However, if you stop focusing on desire, all these things you are going to be free to do.
Whatever you want to do!
Free to not drink!
Because for so many years, for me, personally, I drank to escape my life because I thought life was happening to me. I thought I was the ego and I had a crisis of consciousness. I had a crisis of identity that said
“WHO AM I?”
Who am i? I felt like a fraud. I felt like a failure. I felt like a no-one.
Then, I realized who is it that’s doing the feeling?
I have all these thoughts in my head but who is doing the thinking? Then, I stopped and I paused and I said “I don’t need to drink any more.”
I realized that the eye that wants a drink is nothing more than physical. it’s nothing more than the ego and the desire. I don’t have to drink anymore. I don’t have to stew about who I am anymore.
I could simply be free to live.
When I start from a place of heaven and love, instead of hate and hell, life opens up a whole new world of possibilities. I’d like to thank Jim Carrey for putting these things out there and saying them in a way that works. You look at it and you say
“Why does he say it in such a crazy way?”
because it’s stuff that sounds crazy and goes against the mainstream.
Sometimes, when you have a person who feels this way, they need to be a little crazy to get their point across. I hope that the point comes across to you. I hope that you understand that you are so much more than who you think you are.
How much money you have…
The thoughts you think…
The things you do…
The things that have been done to you and everything…
…You are more.
I want you to start to learn to wake up every day and live from a place of love and caring. Stop worrying about the materialistic junk that the world wants to push upon you. This is what it’s talking about in the bible that so many people miss. This is what religion and spirituality is talking about – that so many people miss.
They’re looking at it from a term of living in life. They’re living in the ego of the world and Jesus says you can be in the world but not of the world.
What does that mean?
“of the world” means that you’re caught in the trap.
You’re caught in the trap and that trap is going to lead to alcoholism. it’s gonna lead to narcissism. it’s gonna lead to mental illness. it’s going to lead to junk. All of these things are made up by a society that says…
ego is what matters; money is what matters; government is what matters
All these things matter…
But what really matters is you being part of everything and you are part of everything. You don’t need to worry about these other things anymore.

When you look at this,
We are drunk because we desire life to be other than it is.
We are drunk because we want to escape, we want a different consciousness.
Drinking is all about changing your consciousness or not being conscious at all. We look at this and that’s what we’re trying to do.
Why not change it for the better?
Why not learn and understand that life is so much more…
Than your drinking
Than your status,
Than your money
I’ll close again with that quote and put some more up, where he said
“I think everyone should get rich and famous and do everything they were dreamed so that they can see it’s not the answer.”
Whatever it is you’re running from.
Whatever it is you’re running to,
Whatever it is you deserve,
Whatever it is you want,
Whatever you think life is,
Whoever you think you are,
DOES NOT MATTER.
What matters is so much more and
if you can see that, there is more
And that is not the answer…
I think you can live a sober life.
