Guest Post: Fabeku Fatunmise
This post is actually a comment-reply to a post I made the other day, and it was so friggin’ fantastic that I thought it should be a post of it’s own, so I asked the lovely and amazing Fabeku if he would be opposed to this, and good news!.. He wasn’t.
So to fully appreciate the context of this post, YOU’LL NEED TO READ THIS FIRST »
(it’s short, I promise, and it’ll add extra ka-pow to this post, as fabeku would say )
AND NOW FOR THE AWESOMENESS:
“A thousand yeses to this.
I swing from singing kirtan, to swearing my face off. Dropping more f-bombs than seems reasonable.
I love business + marketing as much as I love painting + playing drums.
I listen to Krishna Das + the Sex Pistols back to back, without whiplash or apology.
My favorite color is black. I drink mojitos. I pray every day. I read the Gita + comic books with equal enthusiasm.
I tuck my Tulsi mala under my CBGB t-shirt + walk past my pile of vegan cookbooks on the way to eat steak.
I am not unplugged from being human. I laugh constantly + cry all the time. Sometimes I can feel someone’s pain to the point I swear my bones will break. I value connection more than coolness. Even when its messy or scary or painful.
Spiritual vs non-spiritual is a bullshit argument. It just points out where we hold
ourselves separate from our own bigness.
We are beautifully complex creatures. Bigger (and better) than the boxes we try to stuff ourselves into.
I am most at home with people who own + love + celebrate their complexity. Those are the people who seem the most alive + most loving to me.
I am forever fascinated with facets.
Mine. Yours. Ours. All of it. At once.“
