Inspiration: This makes a lot of sense

Being realistic is the most common road to mediocrity — Will Smith

I stumbled upon this video quite randomly. I don’t even know why I decided to watch it, but I’m glad I did.

This video is about life. This video is about the power of “decision” and Will Smith makes a lot of sense. I hope you enjoy it.

Douglas –

I have always admired Will Smith – back from his days as “Fresh Prince of Bel AIr”. He is so real, so commanding, such a wonderful person – thank you for sharing this! I hope man, many people view this blog!

What a powerful video to show during the month of October, which ends with Halloween?Samhain – the thinning of the veil. Amazing! Thank you!

Thank you for posting this, Douglas. I have pretty much dismissed Will Smith but this video was a pleasant surprise. He’s one deep cat.

I love Will Smith. I bought the DVD of “Pursuit of Happyness” when it came out but I can’t bring myself to watch it because I know it will make me cry. I will watch it one day when I’m on my own and I know I’ll be glad that I did.

Dear Doug,

Thank you so much for this post. I have always liked Will Smith but I never knew that this inspiration and fire we see in his movies are exactly what he is in real life, what he is about. I really needed this uplifting message in my life today and you and Will brought it to me. Thank You!

This is a man who knows his mission and visions his life into being. “Magic”

Will Smith is so right…we must be willing to die to what we love in life, otherwise we are already dead. As is the lesson in Tarot, when we pass through “Death” we are reborn to life.

He is tuned to the spiritual wisdom and “universal flow” that also drives the Tarot.

Thanks for sharing!!

Hi Katrina,

It’s interesting how Death, and our attitudes towards it, can aligns us to the “Universal flow”.

Like you, I was most taken with the view that we must be willing to die for what we love (whatever that may be).
