Eckhart Tolle tutors Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey in Time

In last week’s issue of Time, Jim Carrey quoted Eckhart Tolle and revealed he’d visited the spiritual teacher at his home in Vancouver, B.C. “Has Jim Carrey Flipped Out?”

Carrey emerges as a very confused man who seems to have two countervailing forces at war within him, vying for hegemony. In his interview with Time, Carrey got downright metaphysical on their ass:

Then he talks about his meditation practices. And the moment of his enlightenment. And how trying to fill a hole in yourself is pointless, since we don’t have holes. And how time, man, time doesn’t even exist.

We may not know much but we do know this: as soon as you start talking about It, you’re no longer experiencing It. The portal is closed.

Carrey should take a cue from his spiritual mentor and stop doing interviews. Here he was again last week in the San Bernardino Sun:

A friend gave me a book about the 23rd Psalm and I thought, “That’s a great way to look at my life and career. To make choices without fear. To know that I’m taken care of, that I’m all right. And I can choose boldly.”

We had no idea that Carrey needed so much reassurance — that he had been finding his life such a challenge to live, with hardships like deferential treatment when he goes out in public, personal attendants, multimillion-dollar paychecks and keeping the company of girlfriend Jenny McCarthy.

But if we’re to believe an expose in the new issue of Radar, Tolle still has his work cut out for him when it comes to Carrey’s self-centered, exhibitionism:

Reports of his on-set tantrums and quirky behavior have long been circulaiting through the industry, and rose to a fever pitch during production of his latest film, 23, when Carrey, caught up in his role, suddenly unzipped his fly and began urinating against a wall on camera—a flourish not called for in the script.

If this spoke to you, here are five similar articles.

  1. [...] Hollywood’s favorite mystic, and it seems he’s giving some love in return. Back in February we quoted Jim Carrey quoting Tolle in Time magazine. The actor even made a pilgrimmage in person to see Tolle in Vancouver, B.C., [...]

  2. [...] Eckhart Tolle’s rare lecture, Living the Liberated Life and Dealing with the Pain Body, is both a brilliant exposition on this phenomenon — and an induction into an meditative and expansive state. It’s encapsulated in this seminal line about loss: “The winds of grace blow through that hole.” [...]

  3. I came here thinking this was a spiritual based website. Then I found this article and realized the telling sign that this is a commercialized online publication, with no spiritual meat.

    I dont know much about Jim Carrey, but I do read heavy criticism of another... that's not too spiritual.

    Then I read this in the article, "We had no idea that Carrey needed so much reassurance -- that he had been finding his life such a challenge to live, with hardships like deferential treatment when he goes out in public, personal attendants, multimillion-dollar paychecks and keeping the company of girlfriend Jenny McCarthy."

    Seriously, the author of this article has spent how many days studying the mind? If you spend more then 10 days, you know that EVERYONE has issues. Money doesn't buy happiness. Jenny McCarthy doesn't make you happy. True Happiness is on the spiritual path. The fact this article is written the way it is, is a very big indicator, that this site is not about spirituality, but about pushing yellow journalism content.

    too sad.

  4. Yeah, Carrey is the typical needy, dysfunctional entertainer.

    Tolle is the typical money-grubbing plagiarist.

    The poster Brian is the typical excuse-making supposed 'seeker.'
