Not sure to start new thread or not - think this is pertinent here, though.
Curious about clarification on Obama's spiritual state and his life path/work. It would seem his position in the world is (these days) more typical of consensus folks - however, he's spiritual. So, clearly he is choosing this particular path of service, which seems pretty brutal - very hard - to be surrounded by consensus & expectations and the difficulty/intricacy of national & international relations, etc. I'm wondering if this is specific to Obama (these choices to serve this way) and/or if this is something specific to a 'soul type' that is attracted to this type of service - ?
Hope this makes sense. Very tired right now! Thanks for your insights....
One of the core natural principles/ laws within the spiritual state, and indeed generally for all of us, is to give, share, and include. This is the very essence of where Obama's soul 'comes from'. Remember his message during the '08 campaign about 'change you can believe in'. The essence of that message was to bring all peoples, political parties, together in order to negotiate with one another relative to the common good. His natal chart is testimony to this fact.
So this is a desire within his Soul to serve the larger interests defined by the common good. The problem he ran into of course, it seems to me anyway looking at it from afar, is that the Republican party was / is not defined by the common good. It seems to be defined for what it perceives to be in it's own self interest, and of course the limited interests of the wealthy and the corporations. Thus, they determined to block Obama from the very first day he was in office. The record number of 'filibusters' in the U.S Senate is testimony itself to this fact.
The change he promised, it seems to me, is also the sure fact that America elected a African American for the very first time in it's history. Actually Obama is half Caucasian, and half African American. If we put this in the context of Obama having been Abraham Lincoln who of course stopped the enslavement of African American during the Civil War it becomes even more interesting relative to Obama being elected as the first African American to be the president of the USA: "Change we can believe in", indeed.
