Answer to Question 7

7 An internal compass seems to guide me
when faced with important decisions.

In the summer of 1963, when Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr. spoke to thousands from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in
Washington, D.C., he had prepared a text invoking the Declaration
of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bible to call America to
repentance for its unequal treatment of its black citizens. He later said,
as he gazed upon the sea of faces, he sensed
“something in the audience”.


That’s when he set aside his text and
began to improvise. “I still have a dream,” his
voice boomed across the mall. “It is a dream
deeply rooted in the American dream.”

Hundreds have analyzed his speech, and
the fact remains that what makes King’s rhetoric that day memorable
is the power of intuition, a charismatic capacity to speak with the inner
voice to the inner voice in others. This is the core of inspiration that
arises from the direct grasp of Truth.

Whenever we are faced with decisions in life, when we reach
a fork in the road, our intuition is always there, always reading the
situation, always trying to steer us the right way. It is the amalgam
of our understandings of Truth, of the intrinsic elements that support
life in every form. When these moments arise in our lives, we owe it
to ourselves to turn inward. To heed the inner calling. To listen to its

listen to their
inner voice.
