Thanks for joining me!
Welcome to the Won-Of-A–Kind web journal, a virtual space promoting the movement from sheeple to people.
Greetings. My name is Aboyade. I am a unique weave of diverse threads of interests and explorations ranging from Anarchy to Zen.
And while I’m somewhat of a ‘busy intersection’, my purpose is singular: I’m here to contribute to the deliberate effort to transform ourselves into better, higher functioning versions capable of sustaining peace and harmony on this tiny spaceship otherwise known as Mother Earth.
For me, peace and harmony are just as much political goals as they are spiritual goals.
Even though spirituality is often expressed through emphasis on personal growth and development, I will be articulating a path which also insists on using our collective social, political and ecological conditions for assessing our spiritual progress.
With this approach, the world is rendered more sacred (think: heaven on earth) as we evolve through the different levels of Being from spiritual immaturity to divinity. A self-realized person in addition to embodying all the personal attributes of divinity (inner peace, wisdom and so on) is an exemplary engaged citizen and/or community member as well as steward of the environment.
This is in stark contrast to the notion which trivializes physical existence, condemning it as eternally profane. The Sacred is considered to be another realm of existence entirely, accessible only through death.
Or the notion which regards spirituality as the means to attain the trappings of material success without hardly a care for making a positive transformative impact in the world.
Consider the title – W.O.A.K. Obviously, there is some wordplay at work: the acronym is meant to be synonymous with the popular slang ‘woke’ suggestive of socio-political awareness.
There is also a slight rewording of the popular idiom, ‘one-of-a-kind’, (changing one to won) to emphasize the idea of victory …victory along the path less taken…the unique path from sheeple to people.
I invite you to journey with me as we gain clarity on how to bring about improved conditions in our being, in the family in the community in the world…and beyond.
Peace & Blessings,
