The Lightworker

I try not to write anything too gushy about somebody I like or too mean about somebody I don't, especially if they're realatively new on the scene. Unfolding events might illustrate the error of my thinking, and I wouldn't want to be too embarrassed about something I've put out there on the record. I wonder if Mark Medford ot the Huffington Post is a little bit embarrassed by what he wrote in 2008 about Barack Obama:

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.

Dismiss it all you like, but I’ve heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who’ve been intuitively blown away by Obama’s presence — not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence — to say it’s just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord.

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.

Wow. A "Lightworker" who will show us "a new way of being on the planet" and help us "evolve" by speaking to our very souls. In retrospect, it's tempting to think we have exaggerated how much some in the media practically deified Obama. But we have not. The idiots actually did go on like that. Talk about an empty suit that people could make into anything they imagined.
