97. I think obama
Edited on Fri Jun-06-08 03:06 PM by undergroundpanther
knows what an abuse of power is,and it's toxic effects on society culture and individual lives..

I think he knows colonization process is painful and wrong.

I think he has really good social skills.

I think he knows exactly what he is up against.

I think he also has a plan to stop the abuses.

He has a vision based in his understanding of how the world IS,and how it shouldn't be.

To some they might call that"light-work" or say Obama is an "enlightened being".

To me it says he sees the problem knows what is behind it's"mask" of sanity and he isn't going to let the abuses go un-accounted for. He is a person with an INNER locus of control,(a rare thing these days )He has a sense of what integrity MEANS to his own understanding and how it may effect the world,and he has a grasp of the meaning of CONTEXT when it concerns bad or good things for the country.He knows his limits. .He is a person who IS in touch with the suffering inside himself and all around himself,and he doesn't seem to hide in fantasy land or cynic land.Obama does not have the just world hypothesis operating in his mind or his actions(like many "light-workers" do without realizing it and how dangerous such beliefs can be when it comes to issues of justice) Obama isn't afraid to STAND UP ,speak out loud the pain he sees in others and feels for ,and say it skillfully against the colonialists,corporatist and bully thugs in this world and say no YOU don't..DO that ,it is wrong,abusive..

In other words he is intelligent so he THINKS,and he seems to have a empathy so he FEELS at the same time he experiences and he tries to understand it without cutting off one or the other or going into denial..

This makes him appear "enlightened"to some I guess.
But it's not enlightened, it is a deep awareness, of ones inner landscape,inner locus of control, will,passion,all coupled with the realistic assessment of the way the world is.

He isn't "enlightened" per se,he found his own inner locus of control and learned how to balance it. Obama knows deeply what his own intention and will is.It is important he use his intentions and will skillfully when he acts with power , to do it without abusing power,He becomes an anti colonization force through his own self awareness ,experiences and awareness of how the world is,and how it hurts.This way he can become a catalyst of change for the positive if he stays true to his will, and is magnified in the public sphere.It will be as is any trait can be magnified in a candidate who is in politics and using media to get his messages out there..Obama from what I see is wisely moving his will in a self aware way within a distrusting,cynical,hurting abused society living on a fractured dying planet.I think Obama can do alot of good changes if he keeps his inner locus of control tight with his will. I for one welcome these changes..
