Will Smith Gets Spiritual on Instagram, Shares Powerful Message About Faith and Overcoming Fear

Will Smith’s charm and down-to-earth character has helped him gain more than 15 million followers on Instagram just four months after joining the social platform.

And ever since his first post, he’s been inspiring people around the world with messages of hope, love, resilience and positivity. The actor showed his spiritual side in a recent post, sharing a powerful message about faith and overcoming fear while recalling a skydiving experience in Dubai.

"You realize that the point of maximum danger is the point of minimum fear," wrote Smith in his #ThrowbackThursday post, where he shared the life-changing moment he experienced while skydiving. While free-falling from 14,000 feet in the air, despite the sheer terror before the jump, he found “the most blissful” experience in life.

God placed the best things in life on the other side of fear.

Smith spoke about his skydiving experience before, relaying the fear and second-guessing he felt the entire night before the epic experience – a fear that disappeared while flying through the air. “There’s no reason to be scared. It only ruins your day. The best things in life are on the other side of terror.”

While Smith does not often speak of his faith, in a 2015 interview with the Christian Post, he mentioned that his faith helped him accurately depict forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu, a devout Christian, in Concussion.

The movie was about forensic pathologist Omalu’s journey after discovering the destructive effects traumatic brain injuries have on the lives of football players, which led to a massive backlash by the NFL. Smith revealed that his faith was instilled by his grandmother: “My grandmother was really my connection to God. She was my spiritual teacher.”
