The Will Smith Fiasco & What It Can Teach Us About Ourselves: Episode 273 with Guy & Ilan Ferdman

In this week's episode of the Old Souls & Seekers podcast, we're happy to share our thoughts and takes on the controversy that happened between Will Smith and Chris Rock from a spiritual and personal development perspective that puts this incident in a different light than what you've already heard.

The trauma behind what lead up to this hit is what I feel is the most interesting

Guy Ferdman

In today's episode, we're diving into a subject that we usually don't cover, and that is the Oscars and celebrities.

In case you've been living under a rock (or simply don't follow the mainstream media) you probably haven't missed the controversial incident between action Will Smith and comedian Chris Rock at this year's Oscars ceremony.

Now, if celebrities fighting with each other makes you cringe and feels quite irrelevant, we are with you. But there is something very important that we can all learn from this incident.

For those of you who don't know, Chris Rock made a joke about Will Smith's wife and Will Smith reacted by jumping up on stage and slapping Chris Rock in the face.

“Every single one of us have had this moment where we regret it instantly but you could not stop the train from going down that track”

Ilan Ferdman

We want to give a different take on this incident. And dig a bit deeper into why this happened and what we can learn from it.

Both Guy and Ilan have read Will Smith's autobiography and it's been a stunning read with honest insights into his childhood, his insecurities, and what drove him towards success.

In today's episode, we want to uncover the spiritual aspect of this and give you a deeper understanding of what might have triggered this event, to begin with. There are some unusual patterns and parts that have been triggered for this even to have occurred and we want to give you the insights that can also help you in your life.
