I'm referring to an article by Mark Morford that appeared on June 6 in the San Francisco Chronicle. In a column entitled, "Is Obama an Enlightened Being?", Morford offers, "Barack Obama isn't really one of us. Not in the normal way, anyway." Morford opines that Obama is one of those rare people who come along once in an age who have the power to change the world by their mere presence. He continues:
No, it's not merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric. It is not fresh ideas or cool charisma or the fact that a black president will be historic and revolutionary in about a thousand different ways. It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn't have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity.
Obama is not merely a politician from
Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.
I guess by the "coweringly religious," Morford means those of us who believe in the God of the Bible who rules the universe by His just and righteous laws. Obviously, the "deeply spiritual" are those who reject such biblical claptrap for that which is truly spiritual, i.e., eastern mysticism that has no right and wrong and little frame of reference. It is cafeteria-style religion; believe what you like and it will be right for you. Excuse me for the digression, the Christian pastor in me is coming out.
So, Obama is a "lightworker" who can help us evolve. Many of us think he is out of his league just running for President. Add to that the responsibility of leading the world to the next evolutionary step. Seems heavy for me.
According to these "spiritual" persons, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King were similar Lightworkers. These enlightened persons say that JFK was not assassinated for the normal reasons given.
Those attuned to energies beyond the literal meanings of things, these people say JFK wasn't assassinated for any typical reason you can name. It's because he was just this kind of high-vibration being, a peacemaker, at odds with the war machine, the CIA, the dark side. And it killed him.
Now, Obama. The next step. Another try. And perhaps, as Bush laid waste to the land and embarrassed the country and pummeled our national spirit into disenchanted pulp and yet ironically, in so doing has helped set the stage for an even larger and more fascinating evolutionary burp, we are finally truly ready for another Lightworker to step up.
Honestly folks, you cannot make this up. That none of it matches up with the historical record of JFK is not important to these enlightened ones. If you are truly adventurous (and have a strong stomach), you can follow the link and read the entire article for yourself. I find it fascinating that a serious newspaper would print such new age tripe, even in
I'm actually glad for Morford's article. The best thing for John McCain's campaign would be for the public to see the train of flakes, nuts, and radicals that follow in Obama's wake. It would extend the gap between him and mainstream
Given the choice between the next leap in evolution and a sane and patriotic public policy, I'll take the latter any day.
