SF Chron Writer's Vision Of Obama As God
FIle under: The Siddhi of PR
We keep looking for the tongue stuck in his cheek, because otherwise, San Francisco Chronicle columnist Mark Morford has whipped up a batch of sweet, sweet Kool-Aid for U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama, who he appears to seriously consider as a contender for the lead role in the second coming of Christ:
Here's where it gets gooey. 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."Spiritually advanced people." That's something like being a theater director for a community playhouse with only one person in the audience, the same director. Morford would appear to be waylaid in some kind of New Age™ Babylon, sounding much more like a Benjamin Creme-influenced neo-Theosophist than someone actually capable of valid insight into these matters. If he's not having us all off, that is.
