132. Obama is an enlightened being. The rub is in parsing what that means.
I believe there are beings more enlightened than most, and that they do have some connection to the cosmos that many lack or have undeveloped. They're not magic and they don't have superpowers. They have highly attuned ordinary traits and characteristics.

It's not a stretch to believe Obama is such a person. It's also not a stretch to believe he is more spiritual than the religious figures who make a living pretending to be leaders, like the Pope or the Dalai Lama. Whatever Obama is, he's not a old man who was picked by other old men to head a fascist, feudal organization which treats him as spiritually transcendent.
