  1. There are a few of his quotes that I like. If I had to choose one. I would choose “I have no limits. I can not be contained, because I am the container. ”

    Thank you for what you do my friend.

  2. If i have a chance for an hour to sit and talk with Jim Carrey … Looks like whole my life i was looking for a human like you. Peace

  3. Incredible and utterly inspiring. Thank you for handing a map to the many lost souls in our universe. Most people are trapped in the dense forest of their minds and cannot escape the vines of fear that tie them to the underbrush. You can cut that vegetation off my limbs and left me liberated and free from my fearful constraints. God bless your heart.
