Admitting a Mistake

February 9, 2009

This is another post in our continuing series “How Barack Obama Exemplifies Spirituality”.  Today we look at the spiritual aspects of how he admitted a mistake regarding his recent cabinet nominees.

 

Welcome back

First, I want to welcome everyone back from the weekend.  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  In this part of the northeastern US we finally had a warm and sunny weekend.  My toes are warm for the first time in weeks!

 

Maturity admits mistakes

Over the years I have noticed a correlation between emotional maturity and spirituality.  For many of us the more we mature emotionally the deeper our spirituality becomes.

 

My opinion is that the more emotionally mature we become the more we look at others rather than our selves.  When we are entirely focused on ourselves it is very difficult to admit a mistake.  To admit a mistake requires us to be vulnerable and to trust that others will not attack that vulnerability.

 

The cabinet nominees

When Barack Obama admitted that he had made a mistake in appointing two of his cabinet nominees he was making himself vulnerable.  He mitigated some of that vulnerability by being proactive and sitting for the round of interviews with the TV networks.  However, in the end he still had to trust that he would not be attacked while he was vulnerable.

 

In my humble opinion this admission of a mistake continues to show that Barack Obama attempts to operate in a spiritual manner.  Like all of us, I am sure that there are times that he falls short of his objectives.  However, there is plenty of evidence that he is adamant about his spirituality in the face of the pitfalls that currently constitute American politics.

 

Admitting a mistake may seem like a small thing.  However, contrast this admission with the previous administration that could never make such an admission so frankly.

 

Barack Obama clearly followed his internal guidance and admitted a mistake despite the conventional wisdom that cowers from any hint of vulnerability.  Let’s hope that our president continues to listen to and then follow his internal guidance.  It has worked for him so far and we hope that it will continue to work for him.

 

Until tomorrow –

We the People

January 22, 2009

In previous posts we have looked at how Barack Obama exemplifies spirituality.  As I was watching his inauguration yesterday I was once again struck by the language that he uses.  Today we will look at how he is continuing to urge us towards a pragmatic spirituality.

 

It’s not about him

As I was listening to the inaugural speech yesterday I began to notice the pronouns Barack Obama was using.  I was intrigued that he was using the words “we” and “us” almost exclusively.  He rarely used the words “I” or “me”.

 

Upon reflection, I have attributed this to the fact that President Obama is urging us towards his vision of inclusiveness.  He wants us to learn to work together in harmony and for the greater good of all.

 

To achieve this vision he realizes that he cannot “tell” us to do so.  He knows that he must be working towards that goal himself.  To show that he is working with us he includes everyone by using the words “we” and “us”.  Rather than standing separately and commanding us to work together he is joining with us and inviting us to work together.

 

This makes his vision about us – not him.  He sees that we, the people are the most important force in the country.  His plan is to appeal to our better nature.  He knows that when you appeal to someone’s better nature you show that you value them as a person.  When you place this kind of value on people they readily trust you because you have trusted them first.

 

It is this trust of each other that we have lost in recent years.  Our leaders have attempted to fill us with fear.  They have then used that fear to motivate us into destructive situations.  We have found ourselves a nation of fearful and distrustful people.

 

President Obama says that we do not have to live this way.  He recognized that we, the people can be trusted.  That we do not want to fight with each other.  That we can find our better nature and use it to help, not hurt, each other.

 

As we have mentioned before about President Obama, he lives the change that he wants to see.  By trusting we the people he is showing us how to trust each other.

 

Each of us needs to do our part and start learning to trust each other.  After all, we the people are the government of this country.  Ultimately the country becomes what we want it to be.

 

Until tomorrow –

Is Barack Obama a Crystal Child?

December 30, 2008

I have seen a lot of discussion on the internet speculating about Barack Obama being a crystal child.  My opinion is that he exhibits the spiritual characteristics of someone who is part of the mission.  Read the rest of the post for my reasons.

 

The mission

We started this blog with a three part post which described the differences between the crystal children, the indigo children, and the star children.  Without going into a great deal of detail in this post, Barack Obama would technically fit into the category of star child.  Please read this series of posts if you want to know the details.

 

Barack Obama would be a star child only because of his age.  The other factor we would have to look at is how he exemplifies spirituality.

 

Barack Obama exemplifies spirituality

We also published a series of post that showed how Barack Obama exemplifies spirituality.  Based on that series of posts, it is quite clear that he does exemplify spirituality.  His spirituality is apparent in almost every speech that he gives.  Certainly it is a major part of every formal speech that he gives.

 

So far we have the fact that Barack Obama would qualify as a star child because of his age.  Next we have the fact that he is very clearly exemplifying his spirituality.  Is this enough to say that he is part of the mission?  Let’s take a look.

 

Is Obama part of the mission?

Back in October we published a post entitled “Who Is in the Mission Now?”  The primary message in that post is that those who were trained specifically as a part of the mission have pretty much lost their way.  Whether you are a crystal, indigo, or star child is no longer important.

 

What is important is that you are exemplifying spirituality and working towards being your true self.  If you were trained as a part of the mission – great!  If you weren’t part of the formal training – no problem!

 

The important thing is that you have learned the importance of living a spiritual life.  In living that spiritual life you are also helping those around you to do the same.  Once we truly begin to live a spiritual life we cannot help but exemplify what we understand.

 

Is Barack Obama a Crystal Child?

The exact answer to that would be no – he is too old to be a crystal child.  Is he a star child and part of the mission?  I think that he most likely is.  I have no proof that he was trained prior to this lifetime as a part of the mission.  But, as we have said several times, that is unimportant.  What is important is that he is exemplifying his spirituality and encouraging the rest of the planet to do the same.

 

Until tomorrow –

More Barack Obama and Spirituality – The Cabinet

December 10, 2008

Shortly after the presidential election we spent a week looking at how Barack Obama exemplifies spirituality.  Today we continue that discussion by analyzing how he is choosing his cabinet.

 

Accept those who disagree with you

An important aspect of spirituality is to accept those who disagree with you.  For many years our presidential politics have been characterized by the demonization of our opponents.  The idea was that if you did not agree with the people in power you were ridiculed, personally attacked, and marginalized.

 

A spiritual person recognizes that there are many valid viewpoints on most matters.  Just because we disagree does not mean that we cannot work together.  A spiritual person validates those who disagree with them by listening to and acknowledging the validity of opposing perspectives.

 

This does not meant that you have to act on the opposing viewpoints.  We validate the viewpoint by considering it.  We then choose our course of action and explain it as best we can to those who gave their input regarding why we did not follow their suggestions.

 

Most reasonable people realize that their suggestions will not always be followed.  By seriously considering those suggestions we are saying that we value their input and want to continue to hear opposing viewpoints in the future.

 

He has chosen former opponents

Barack Obama has chosen several former opponents from the presidential primary races.  Hillary Clinton was his most formidable opponent from that series of elections.  By choosing her as his Secretary of State he saying that the previous disagreements are over.  Going forward they will work together in the unified spirit that Barack Obama wants to be the new spirit of our country.

 

Another way that Barack Obama is accepting his opponents is by keeping Robert Gates as Secretary of Defense.  There has been too much partisan fighting between Republicans and Democrats.  Most of the American people want to find a way to get past this destructive struggle.

 

By keeping the Republican Gates on as Secretary, Barack Obama is reaching out his hand to Republican partisans.  He is saying that he does not think that everything that is Republican is bad.  This will show that he is not demonizing his opponents like so many other politicians have done in recent years.

 

The only problem with this strategy is that Barack Obama can open the door, but his opponents have to walk through it.  He can stop demonizing his opponents, but he cannot make his opponents stop demonizing him.  All he can do is not respond in kind, which is what he has done so far.  Let’s hope the he has the self control to continue to do so.

 

That is all for today.

 

Until tomorrow –

How Barack Obama Exemplifies Spirituality (part 4)

November 13, 2008

Today we will continue our look at a few spiritual concepts that Barack Obama seems to be exemplifying.  His main message is about change.  Today we will look at some of the spiritual aspects of change.

 

Tomorrow we will finish this series by summarizing the posts from this week.  We will also add a few last words on this subject in an attempt to put everything into the appropriate perspective.

 

Be the change you want to see

The primary message that Barack Obama espoused throughout his campaign was the idea of change.  Unlike most other politicians he appeared to be a “do as I do” person.  Many politicians are “do as I say” and then do not “do” as they have said.  In other words they talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.  Let’s take a look at a few ways in which Barack Obama both talked the talk and walked the walk.

 

Inclusive

The first example of this is what we mentioned in Tuesday’s post about being inclusive.  Barack Obama constantly pointed out that there are no red states and no blue states – only the United States.  He walked that walk by building a fifty state campaign organization.

 

This organization said to each state that they were important and helped to solidify the campaign as a unified national organization.  Other politicians have mouthed the words of national unity and then waged their campaigns primarily in the swing states.  By being inclusive of all states Barack Obama was the change that he wanted to see.

 

End divisive politics

In Tuesday’s post we also talked about the “energize the base” campaign strategy.  We showed how this is a very divisive method of winning an election.  To compliment his idea of inclusiveness, Barack Obama talked extensively about bringing an end to divisive politics.

 

He walked that walk by identifying the entire country as his base.  He did not actively energize any one group at the expense of another.  His message was that we are one people.  He repeatedly attempted to find ways to unify us rather than splinter us into factions.

 

This was heard in his constant message about all of us working together.  By his being willing to work with all of us, Barack Obama was being the change he wanted to see – all of us working together.

 

Fear

Barack Obama also talked about not being afraid.  He was not as explicit as Franklin Roosevelt who talked much more directly about fear.  Barack Obama dealt with fear by emphasizing positive and progressive ideas.

 

When his opponents resorted to tactics designed to make the electorate fearful of him, Barack Obama did not respond in kind.  By not continuing the downward spiral of fear based tactics Barack Obama exemplified the change he wanted to see.  He showed us that fear does not have to be used in order to gain an objective.

 

He is not the change – we are

Another spiritual principle demonstrated by Barack Obama was not taking credit for things done by other people.  A spiritual person knows that when someone changes themself, the primary credit goes to the one who has changed.  That individual has gathered up their courage, seen a better way to live, and then made the change for a happier life.

 

An enlightened person may have guided the way or said a few helpful things that assisted in the change.  But the enlightened person also knows that by giving credit to the person who made the change they will help the person feel empowered.  Once we know that we have the power to change ourself in a positive manner we can go out and change anything we want to change.

 

This is a very important spiritual principle.  The enlightened spiritual person recognizes that the most powerful force is a person who has changed their life for the better and knows that they made that change.  This person has realized their own true power – possibly the single most important spiritual understanding.

 

By constantly telling us that he was not the change Barack Obama was showing extreme strength.  Politicians tend to be false self (ego) driven people.  This is frequently mistaken for strength.  In reality it is only a very strong false self.

 

True self does not need to take credit for the changes other people make.  True self only cares that other people learn to change for the better.  Also, true self knows the journey required in making those changes.  True self knows that the really difficult work was done by the person who made the positive change.  The credit goes to those who do the work, not the one who points out the work that needs to be done.

 

Here is one more variation on this idea of showing us that we are the change.  He constantly gave credit for his successes and victories to those who did the work.  Many politicians mouth these words.  With Barack Obama one has the feeling that he really understands what he is saying and means it sincerely.

 

Change from the bottom up

Finally let’s look at the idea of change happening from the bottom up.  This was another frequent theme of the campaign that Barack Obama ran.  This idea of change coming from the bottom closely matches his supporting those that are actually doing the work of that change.

 

Many politicians talk about change.  They talk about what they are going to change.  They are telling us that they are going to make the decisions and that we are going to have to accept those decisions.  That is change from the top down.  We the people can only accept or resist that kind of change.  This becomes a confrontational situation, not one of empowerment.

 

By telling us that the change starts with we the people and then showing us how to empower ourselves, Barack Obama is showing us how to take control of our country.  He is walking the walk of telling us we are the change, empowering us to be the change, and then telling us that the change comes from us at the bottom.  How much more could he exemplify these ideas?

 

That is all for today.  We have talked about spirituality in the last few days.  Here is the link in case anyone would like to read our article “What Is Spirituality?”  Come back tomorrow for a few last thoughts on this subject.

 

Until tomorrow –

How Barack Obama Exemplifies Spirituality (part 3)

November 12, 2008

Today we continue our series about how Barack Obama may be exemplifying spirituality.  Today we will look at how he could possibly be taking a spiritual approach to fear.

 

He shows no fear

I cannot ever remember seeing Barack Obama being afraid of anything.  Many politicians are very good actors.  They talk about not being afraid ad nauseam.  However, when the chips are down, the vast majority of them exhibit fear.

 

Most of the time they do not even recognize that they are afraid.  They talk about fear so much that when they become afraid they usually go into denial of their fear.  The fear oozes out in ways they do not recognize.

 

They are afraid of not getting elected so they make deals that are either shady or illegal.  Then they become afraid for their conduct to be investigated.  They are afraid to be called names by their opponents so they strike back out of fear to protect their image.  They are afraid of not having enough money after they leave office so they get involved in questionable schemes and bribery.

 

It is very clear that Barack Obama wanted to win this election.  I do not know for sure, but I do not think he was personally afraid of losing it.  He concentrated on doing what he needed to do to win the election.  He did things to win – not to prevent a loss.  This is a slight but important subtlety.

 

The mind set to win is different than the mind set to prevent loss.  When you are attempting to prevent a loss you are operating from fear of that loss.  When we set our minds to win we harness positive energy – not the negative energy that comes from the fear of losing something.

 

He does not attempt to make others fearful

Barack Obama had several opponents that attempted to make others fearful if he won the election.  He faced these opponents in both the primary and presidential elections.  His opponents attempted to warn the electorate of how bad everything would be if Barack Obama won the election.

 

Barack Obama responded to this direct fear mongering from his opponents in what has been an unconventional manner.  He did not attempt to instill a similar fear in the electorate.

 

Yes – he did ask if you were better off now than you were four years, four months, or four weeks ago.  But that does not directly generate fear.  Someone can look at their life and answer without fear that they were better off four months ago.  Another person can answer the question and become fearful of the future because they were much better off four months ago.

 

Barack Obama did not tell anyone to be fearful – but people could have chosen to be fearful.  Sometimes no matter what you say people decide to be fearful.

 

This is quite different than telling people to be fearful.  During the presidential campaign the electorate was told many things about which to be fearful of Barack Obama.  We do not know enough about him, he is a socialist, he wants to raise your taxes, he is a friend of domestic (and possibly foreign) terrorists, he is a secret Muslim, and on and on and on.

 

It was almost as if because the last fear was no longer effective they had to find a new fear.  Because Barack Obama reacted by neither showing fear nor attempting to make others fearful they kept trying to instill new fears into the electorate.

 

It is possible that this reaction by Barack Obama resonated with the electorate.  They unconsciously saw these attacks that blatantly used fear in an attempt to manipulate them.  They saw the calm and positive reaction from Barack Obama.  I think the case can be made that this example showed the electorate that they did not need to be fearful and that neutralized the fear based attacks.

 

Vulnerability

Vulnerability is a very powerful spiritual example.  I think that Barack Obama was at his most vulnerable during his response to a very hostile fear based attack.  When we are vulnerable, most people recognize that we are being our true self and they respond positively.

 

Barack Obama was at his most vulnerable during the speech that he gave in Philadelphia regarding racial issues.  This speech was in response to the fear based attacks he was receiving because of his pastor, Reverend Wright.

 

From all accounts, his aides did not want Barack Obama to make this speech.  They were afraid of opening a can of worms that would become the race issue.  They thought that there was no upside that could come from taking this action.  The aides and advisors were very uncomfortable about the decision to make this speech.

 

Barack Obama made the speech and made himself vulnerable.  He put all the cards on the table about his life and his experiences about racial differences.  He showed no fear and allowed himself to be wide open for vicious attacks from his opponents.

 

There were a few talking heads in the media that took a few swipes at him for the content of this speech.  For the most part, especially from his opponents, there was no criticism.  His speech was so open, so honest, and so vulnerable.

 

Anyone responding negatively to this speech would have shown themselves as insensitive and boorish.  Any negative response would have shown up his opponents – not Barack Obama.  That is the essence of the spiritual power of vulnerability.

 

That is all for today.  Come back again tomorrow for a few more things that I think exemplify the spirituality of Barack Obama.

 

Until tomorrow –

How Barack Obama Exemplifies Spirituality (part 2)

November 11, 2008

Yesterday we began our series of articles that take a look at how Barack Obama is exemplifying spirituality.  Yesterday we heard about how he appears to stay in the moment most of the time.  We also got a feeling for his nonviolent approach to his campaign.  Today we will look at a few more aspects of what appears to be the spirituality that Barack Obama lives in his public life.

 

Housekeeping – email distribution

FeedBurner did not distribute yesterday’s post.  This happens on occasion.  FeedBurner is a free service and at times a distribution gets missed.  When this happens the next distribution delivers both posts.  Hopefully our email subscribers received two updates in the same distribution today.

 

He is inclusive

In today’s post we will look at how Barack Obama espouses an inclusiveness that appears to be spiritual in origin.  The first aspect of this is his determination to run a campaign in all fifty states.

 

The prevailing wisdom in the last three or four presidential elections has been to energize your base and then concentrate your campaign in the “swing” states.  We will talk about what energizing the base means shortly.  For now we will look at the fifty state strategy that Barack Obama ran.

 

The fifty state strategy

As we mentioned in the last paragraph, the recent method of campaigning has been to concentrate your efforts in the swing states.  During the 1990s the political strategists running the campaigns began dividing the country into red and blue states.  The red states were Republican and the blue states were Democratic.

 

The strategy was to put some effort into the states that were solidly on your side, but the focus was on the large states that were neither red nor blue.  These were the swing states.  This is why there was so much concentration on states like Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

 

The solid red and blues states were mostly balanced with their electoral vote.  By winning the swing states you could win the entire election.  With this strategy much of the country was discounted as to their importance.  It was as if the presidential candidates said “You are inconsequential to our strategy so we will not even visit your state.”

 

Barack Obama broke this supposed wisdom wide open.  From the beginning he said that there were no red states or blue states only the United States.  He rolled out his fifty state campaign during the primary election season.  By building an organization in each of the fifty states he was able to win the nomination of his party.

 

He then went on to use that same organization to run another fifty state campaign during the presidential election.  He said that each state is important.  He saw that by getting everyone to work together across the entire country that we would all feel included.  We all have a stake in the outcome of the election.  This strategy was so successful that towards the end of the campaign Barack Obama was gaining tremendous support in states that had been red for forty or more years.

 

Energize the base

The fifty state strategy was not the only way that Barack Obama showed a spiritual inclusiveness in his campaign.  He eschewed the recent trend towards energizing a small base of loyal supporters from which to gain strength.

 

The “energize the base strategy” works like this.  You identify a small and extremely loyal group of supporters.  These are the supporters that will literally blindly follow you no matter what.

 

From a spiritual standpoint this is a pure appeal to the false self of those supporters.  The false self of the supporters is basically manipulated so that they stay loyal to the candidate.  These supporters will believe anything you say and fight any battle you tell them to fight.

 

The energized base does not make up a majority of your party, much less a majority of the electorate.  In order for the energized base to prevail in an election you have to deal with those that do not agree with you.

 

To neutralize your opponents you find wedge issues that will split them from your base and from each other.  Typical wedge issues have been gay rights, abortion, and the aggression and occupation of Iraq.

 

The strategy is to split the opposition – both from your party and the other party – into small groups.  These small groups wind up fighting with each other and cannot muster enough strength to challenge the numerically smaller but politically stronger energized base.

 

This is the type of politics that Barack Obama talked about when he called for ending the politics of divisiveness.  Barack Obama appears to have a vision of a unified America (and world) where people work together but are able to respectfully disagree with each other.  By rejecting the divisive “energize the base” strategy Barack Obama is attempting to show us that working together is much more important than demonizing our opponents.

 

One last note on the “energizing the base” strategy.  Although this has been the primary strategy of the Republican Party, Barack Obama faced this kind of strategy from some of his opponents in the Democratic Party primary elections.

 

We are one nation

One theme that was mentioned in nearly every speech that Barack Obama gave was that we are one nation, one people.  He continually talked more about what unifies us.  He spent little if no time on our differences.  Besides being a spiritual principal of inclusiveness, I see this as a spiritual healing.

 

We have spent many years being divided into angry factions by our “leaders”.  Those same “leaders” spent many years telling us to be afraid of those who are not like us.  Nothing saps the spiritual will of an individual or nation like being told to be afraid of everyone and everything.

 

It appears to me that Barack Obama may have seen this disconsolate mood in the country.  Somehow he realized that we needed a spiritual healing.  He appealed to our better nature and it should be no surprise that we responded.

 

A spiritual person knows that when you appeal to someone’s better nature they will agree with you the vast majority of the time.  By appealing to our sense of unity as a nation Barack Obama was able to get us to agree with his vision for a more civil place to live.

 

That is all for today.  We will continue this theme again tomorrow.  Please help start the national discussion of this subject by sharing your comments with your brothers and sisters around the world who are reading this blog.

 

Until tomorrow –
