“Ego will not let you rest until you make an indelible mark on the Earth – until you have achieved immortality. How tricky is this ego that it would tempt you with something you already possess?”
Jim Carrey’s Commencement Speech
As students graduate from high schools and colleges at this time of year, it is a good time to keep our ambitions in perspective. Often, we chase after badges of personal achievement, accomplishing many things other than happiness. The only true path to happiness is to turn the search inward and achieve comfort in the knowledge that infinite possibilities and joy are not external. They emanate from inside, and we already possess everything we need to achieve them if we are comfortable with our true selves.
