. MESSIAH More and more people at work are referencing our President, Barack Hussein Obama, as The Messiah. I am not quite ready to make this leap, Ill wait until he addresses EFCA; The Employee Free Choice Act before I start thinking about using that epithet. The Messiah, the New Messiah? Who would have guessed that a President, Americas first black President, could garner such spiritual association? Although, when I think about it, our world doesnt enamor kings of countries anymore. We have Presidents and such. In this respect, Barack Obama is The King of Kings The President of Presidents, so I think I can nod to that reference. Barack Hussein Obama has brought the world the emotion of Hope for a huge amount of people in the world, and in this respect emotions are spiritual. In a world that finds religious people as the ones who are constantly warring with each other of different factions. I find most people who are religious, no matter what religion to be, for the most part rude, arrogant, filled with the outer convictions that reveal little of the inner currency that fosters a character of inner confidence in a other world, a better world after their death. Where is that strength? Who has it? Somewhere, in the back recesses of my mind somewhere I remember the essence, the first concept of soul being reveled, I think, by the Greeks. Thumos meant fire within. We have derived the word thermos from this term that merged an inner emotion, an inner conviction, to an, at that time, undefined spirit. Some people refer to the 43ed & 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama as The Black Messiah. For decades I have pointed out to people, that the Christians Jesus was black. Jesus Christ is considered the worlds first black messiah. For those who are unable to shake their Hollywood associations I point out the fact that Egypt is located in the African Continent. Jesus Christ was African. When the Hollywood impaired persist in their convictions of a white Jesus, I now just settle back, smile and say, Oh yeah, good point, and let it go. Perhaps my coworkers are right and their, casual references to The Messiah or The New Messiah are amplified in my mind because of something deep inside me. We can we make the spiritual association to our President of the United States. All we need is the emotion, a newly defined spirit, all we need is The Audacity of Hope. .
