Obama, Anatomy of a World Leader
by Alex Grey

“After hearing Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin, and noting the degree of excitement and hope that he generated throughout many countries besides the US, I started to see him as one of the first true “world leaders.” This may be partly because of his extraordinary childhood and political life that has bridged many cultures. Obama’s restraint and intelligence, exhibited as foes were bating him throughout the campaign, his heartful clarity coming through in his talks are all qualities of a highly evolved person. We need to consider our planetary citizenship, because solving the world’s ecological and economic problems, and creating a culture of peace and reconciliation will require the co-operation of all nations. Perhaps you can use this symbol of Barack Obama to send him a prayer of support, to send all the loving hopeful healing and creative energy that we can focus on him so that he can perform the task of leadership in the most effective and powerful way for the greatest good, for the greatest number.”

The above statement is Alex Grey’s interpretation of his Obama painting. How can an artist like Alex Grey, one who has supposedly superseded this physical realm, idolize Obama as some sort of spiritual leader? Most of Alex’s art reflects the true essence of our beings by displaying consciousness as a universal energy that we and all living things on this planet share, breaking down the physical reality of our perception of self and body. But the sitting president’s existence in the current political arena serves to bolster a physical illusion that divides the people and cloaks the real power that we humans have within.
