People for thousands of years have tried to crack the code of reaching spiritual bliss. For some, it lies in working as hard as one possibly could. While others felt the love of family could only fulfill real spiritual happiness. However, the insightful Will Smith belongs to neither of the two categories. Will shared what he feels is true is key to being happy in his one-hour-long interview.
He also shared his journey of how he reached such a great start of awareness. So let us take a look at how Will Smith had a journey to a state of peace.
Will Smith gives an insight into his Ayahuasca Journey
We literally learned hundreds of things about Will Smith in under an hour, thanks to David Letterman and his questions. One of the rather surreal segments of Will’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction episode was how his father’s death and other scenarios led him to Peru, where he was introduced to Ayahuasca.
While discussing Ayahuasca with David Letterman, Smith explains that it is not a hallucinogenic drug but a psychotropic, meaning things aren’t going inside your head. Or how Smith explains it better, saying it isn’t “superimposed on reality.”
Instead, the King Richard actor says they are two different realities that you perceive at the same time. He also explains how one is in full focus of what is happening and even has complete sight.
To which David follows up with a question, “Could you get up and go to dinner?” and Will, even though agreeing, says that one can but wouldn’t want to as it is a private experience saying, “You want to be in a private scenario.”
The Bright star then informs David how a single dosage of Ayahuasca lasts for eight hours. And after commencing the journey, one has no control over it but to let it pass.
David then curiously asks how many journeys Will has been on, to which Will replies 14 sitting over the course of two years.
