THE OBAMA INITIATIVE - PART ONE
It is with immense joy that I join those who share the Synthetist Vision to bring to you, from my lovely island home Sri Lanka, this message of hope today. It has taken us so long to prepare these words because they bring you thoughts that are not our own; thoughts that come to you through us from the very heart of this eternal process which we are all a part of. It has taken us a long time and a great deal of effort to access these thoughts and write them down so that we can read them out to you tonight.

Nobody likes the kind of people who kill other people. Nobody likes the kind of people who adopt killing as a policy of governance. Nobody likes the kind of people who make people disappear, who torture people and assassinate them. Nobody likes people who kidnap others and hold them for ransom. Nobody likes people who bomb thousands of people to death. Nobody likes people who intimidate and terrorize them. Nobody likes people who subvert due legal and democratic processes. Nobody likes people who have closed and static minds and who therefore refuse to allow change. Nobody likes those who stir up public disaffection against their opponents. Nobody likes people who fear to be loved but love to be feared. Nobody likes people who turn humans into killers instead of into lovers. Nobody likes such people regardless of their ethnicity, gender, sexuality, belief, or other elements of their identity.

Such people are disliked because they prevent and seek to crush the free expression of what it can be to be human - and this shows especially clearly in the areas of identity, gender, sexuality and belief.

If in order to be patriotic, if in order to be saved and go to heaven, if in order to be normal, if in order to be good one has to support such Authoritarian, Intolerant, Exclusive, Gender biased, Violent, Murderous, Sadistic, Lawless Killers, then naturally we and our communities and our nation states will come to be identified with these characteristics.

Since all Religions, all Communities and all Nations not only encourage but indeed do demand that we be saved and go to heaven, demand that we be normal, demand that we be good and demand that we be patriotic the world seems doomed to become a dark and gloomy place enshrouded in a pall of suffering, death and destruction. It is time that those of us who do not wish to contribute to this situation, made our position very clear.

We are gathered here today to send our sincere greetings to all those of you, who in the midst of this situation of seeming despair, have voted to "go forth in faith with hope".

In doing so you have made it possible for change to happen. You have built a platform for those who have entered and those who are entering a whole new perceptual paradigm that generates a different kind of person with a different kind of character - a kind of person and character that has always been the model though never yet the norm – to come forward and help the world change direction.

These are people who adopt broadly humanitarian values, who are inclusive in their thinking, who accept the concept of Human Rights and who accept due democratic and legal processes. These are people who do not agree that states or other institutions have the right to use violence and coercion in the implementation of its policies. These are people who do not agree that the police, the armed forces and other agents of the state can use violence and torture. These are people who accept the right of every person to lead a life of their choice as long as they do not cause physical and spiritual harm to others or to their environment. These are people who perceive reality as being dynamic rather than static, relative rather than absolute and stochastic rather than deterministic..

We invite all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to join us in extending to you our congratulations on having successfully identified and elected a person who is willing to take the helm and steer the developmental process along the pathways to change that more and more of us are able to perceive.

We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to offer you our solidarity and support as you continue along the path that leads from the violent authoritarian intolerant gender biased structures through which we currently govern ourselves, towards new systems of governance  based on tolerance, inclusiveness, widespread participation non violence and gender neutrality.

We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to offer you our solidarity and support towards the momentous task of beating swords into ploughshares - that is to say the task of turning funds that would be used to build weapons to buy food, to feed the hungry, clothes to cloth the naked, to build homes to house the homeless, to buy medicine for those who are sick, to set up systems of teaching and training for those who want to learn and to build and maintain massive communication networks that will make it possible for us to talk together and jointly decide the future of the world.


We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to offer you our solidarity as you struggle with the emerging and unavoidable task of de linking access to food, clothes, shelter, medicine, learning and communicating with one another, from access to wages within a context where less and less work is required to meet the requirements of all of humanity and where creating work simply in order to pay people for time on the job becomes meaningless.

We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to stand with you in solidarity as you dismantle your gruesome chambers of torture, bring your men and women of war back home and retrain them to become missionaries of hope and experts equipped to build a new world.

We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to stand with you as you transform your police force into a network of deeply committed spiritual guides entrusted with the task of guiding people through the intricacies of daily life in the complex global economy.

We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to stand by you as you transform those who man your medical services into healers who have the freedom to administer all required procedures without financial constraints.

We join all those throughout the world who share these characteristics to stand by as you transform your teachers into mentors, masters and sages, your leaders into missionaries and ministers as you energize them all towards a shift from the Dominant Dualistic Perceptual Paradigm to the emerging holistic and unitive one that we call The Synthetist Vision that brings with it a new way to live, a new life for each one of us and a new world for us all.

And to you who has been identified, chosen and called and who has heeded that call of awakening humanity we extend our goodwill and our best wishes and upon you we bestow our blessings.  We salute the courage you have displayed in coming forward to take the helm and steer this great process of change.

We charge you never to forget that the hope of the world is focused upon you. The gaze of six billion people is fixed upon you. We call upon you to listen and to meditate deeply upon what you hear and to speak sparingly with considered words designed to inspire, to guide and to heal. We ask you to spend the early hours of every day in the silence that lies deep within your heart where you may hear the voice of the world speak to you of what must be done if humans are to realize what they may give back to the source of all that is has been and ever can be.

Most of all we give you our love for in you we see ourselves with all our best intentions. Go forth then with faith and in joy and know that we are with you for now.

We end this message with our special salutations to Dazza Greenwood of the media Lab at MIT whose ongoing efforts to build a global mind that will enable tens of thousands of us from all over the world to link up and think together has inspired us to begin this process using available technologies on the internet to do so.
