Obama the Lightworker Watch

While some have wondered if Presidential candidate Barack Obama is the Messiah, others have speculated a less Christian-centric role for the charismatic politician. Back in June, columnist Mark Morford said that several “spiritually advanced” people are claiming Obama is a Lightworker.”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.”Now, Obama has caused a minor stir, and given “Obama as pan-religious enlightened being” watchers something to chew on by giving a press conference in Jordan at the Temple of Hercules. Obama at the Temple of Hercules”Barack Obama strode onto the world stage on Tuesday with trademark audacity, or as his political enemies would have it, a dearth of humility, in the symbolic shadow of Jordan’s Temple of Hercules.
