Barack Obama’s karmic contract is to be a leader for the world, not just a leader for the U.S. His legal contract is to lead the U.S, but his karmic contract is to be a leader for the world. His karmic contract is to be a catalyst for enlightening change in the world.
A catalyst is a substance or an object that facilitates change. It does not make the change occur – instead, it initiates and enhances a process and that is precisely what his role is to be. In fact, his contract to be a catalyst for a certain process has already been accomplished. His initial contract was fulfilled during and just after his election campaign. The changes he was meant to facilitate occurred in the hearts and minds of people across the world.
With his initial karmic contract fulfilled, he is now working to support the changes that are only possible if they are created and upheld by the citizens of the world. A catalyst is a substance that causes or accelerates a chemical reaction, or a person that inspires an event or change to take place. A catalyst can signal a process to begin and it can enhance or speed up a process that is already underway.
Barack Obama is doing both. He helped initiate a process and he is also helping to enhance or make more efficient a process that is already under way. The process is human empowerment, which is both a result of and the driving force for healing of the human family.
Barack Obama is not the only catalyst and he is not the only leader involved in this work. There are many other world leaders, both official and non-official, who do this work. The catalyst that he provides is unique. This role can be seen most clearly in what was fulfilled during his election campaign, where most of his karmic contract was fulfilled.
The speeches that he gave and the particular way that he ran his campaign catalyzed a process inside millions of people across the world. The messages and actions that took place during his campaign initiated and activated a process within millions of individuals, and a process across many societies, by which human beings are becoming empowered enough to dismantle oppressive forces and create more light and love, effectually making the world a better place. (As you might imagine, this is the dramatically short version.)
In a sense, Barack Obama’s karmic contract was to be a catalyst for hope. Hope only works in the individuals who choose to carry it or act on it. The effects of his catalytic process were most outwardly apparent in the ways that people were activated to vote or to make changes in their communities. But the greatest actual effects occurred within people’s minds and hearts.
The massive shift toward hope and empowerment cannot be measured but rest assured, the world is a more peaceful place and more people have moved forward in enlightenment based on the role he has played. Now, the work and the way forward are yours to determine.
Once Barack Obama entered the presidency, his role as a catalyst has been somewhat diminished because people have a tendency to cease their own empowerment when they turn to a powerful leader. This occurs because people, through the dynamics of oppression, have learned to turn their own authority over to their leaders. People in nearly every culture on the planet have learned to wait for their leaders to take decisive action, and in waiting each individual forfeits their own power to affect change.
Citizens in the U.S. have exhibited a tendency to imagine that once Barack Obama was in an official leadership position that he would take care of things. When you wait for your leaders to instruct you, or you sit back and blame others for their missteps, you lose track of your own power, and it becomes easy to lose faith in your own ability to create positive change in the world around you.
Remember that all of you have been oppressed in one way or another. It is not your fault that you have been oppressed, but it is your responsibility to actively choose to reassign your personal authority to yourself, to re-determine and revitalize yourselves to make positive changes in the world around you.
This reclaiming of your personal power, and it’s collective potential, ultimately is the process that Barack Obama was meant to catalyze. His calling is to inspire all the citizens in the world into action. He will not make the world a better place through his actions; instead, he inspires all of you to make the world a better place.
As long as each of you is taking responsibility and doing what you can to improve the world within your sphere of influence, then you are using him positively as a catalyst. If people do not use his leadership role to further inspire and empower themselves into action, then the usefulness of his role will expire. It will no longer be useful for him to be in the role of a world leader officially if the role of catalyst is not being fulfilled.
It is vitally important that all of you continue to remember that he is not here to make change, he is here to inspire you to make change. That is the role he came here to perform, that is the karmic contract that he signed up for. Most of this has been accomplished on his end of the contract. Of course as a president he has legal and societal contracts to fulfill, but outcome of his karmic contract now depends upon you. (January 2010)
Will the Keepers comment on the New World Order and what it means to personal freedoms?
The term ‘New World Order’ was coined in the service of a political agenda. Its evolution, its use, and all of the energy people carry about it is infused with that political agenda. The term was coined in order to cultivate fear. For the most part, the New World Order as it was initially foreseen has already occurred. The word for it from here with hindsight, as you have seen it occur, is globalization. Globalization has already occurred and the new world order is emerging. The term as it was originally coined is no longer an accurate representation of what globalization has come to be.
Instead, what is emerging is a new set of values, ethics, practices, communication styles and power dynamics based on the inevitable fact of globalization. You are seeing this now. So many of the diplomatic engagements occurring between countries are occurring in ways that have never occurred before.
Take for example World War I or World War II, it was possible and even natural that two sides of an argument could each be intriguing enough that if a group of countries would take one side or the other so that you would have a world war that involved one group against another group.
What you will find now is more consensus in regard to values, ethics, and practices amongst countries so that instead of having groups of countries truly divided, instead of having those kind of ally relationships, what you will have is a kind of general consensus as modeled by the new united nations and what you might call rogue countries or countries, governments or groups who deviate from the ethics, values and the practices that have emerged as part of globalization.
A great example of this is North Korea. What you are finding now is that different countries are deciding whether to join the consensus or whether to operate in a rogue fashion. The new world order, all those things you were taught to fear in regard to losing your personal freedoms are not really accurate any more. That sense that there will be guiding principles and even governments that oversee the entire world is accurate. That has been in place for a long time. The United Nations was an early version of that. It will continue to grow.
What the idea of the new world order and the fear it engendered did not take into account is that through globalization, all the individual people would be moving around and becoming connected to one another. Millions of individuals migrating from one country to another, billions of individuals coming to recognize the value of diversity, the importance of personal freedom, the value of every human life.
As so many of you have adopted those values and let yourselves open up to people who are different from you, you have developed more empathy and understanding for one another and for the connections between you. It becomes impossible for your personal freedoms to be as severely limited as they would have been in the past. While it is not perfect, for those of you who are concerned about the new world order, you might consider laying that chapter to rest and asking yourself instead what do I see in globalization and what actions are there for me to take in regard to globalization. You will find more and more that there is no way you can just move to a more comfortable place.
It has become so important that you make the place where you are as comfortable as you can. Meaning that it is so important that you fight for the rights for those around you that are oppressed rather than trying to corner yourselves in a so-called safe place with those who are similar to you. It is important that you connect with those who are different and fight just as hard for their personal freedoms as you would for your own.
As you do that, the new world order that will continue to emerge will be based on a system of values and ethics that supports personal freedom in a way that is even greater than what was initially idealized by the founders of the United States. It all depends on you as individuals. No government at this point is as powerful as you as individuals when you collect yourselves. This is only beginning to be understood, so watch for the story to unfold. (July 2009)
