To expand our intuition we must ask ourselves two vital questions:
1. What is my purpose?
2. How can I serve?
If you find answering these questions difficult, do the internal work and allow an inner dialogue with your intuition to unfold. When you know this, you will find yourself feeling less like your life involves climbing a mountain and more aligned with the effortless flow of your life journey. Pulling back the layers of your consciousness and revealing the panoramic view of your life plan will result in a profound healing effect on the collective consciousness for your family, your community and ultimately the world. We need people who are willing to express their energy at the highest level.
These are five men who I feel lived with positive energy that is still being felt today:
1. Albert Einstein
2. Martin Luther King, Jr.
3. W.E.B. Du Bois
4. Max Planck
5. Leonardo Da Vinci
W.E. B. Du Bois is the one whose illustrious life I will focus on today. He was the first African-American to earn a Ph.D in History at Harvard in 1896. Later, he became a professor of history and economics at Atlanta University. As head of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1910, he was founder and editor of the NAACP’s journal, The Crisis. During his long turbulent career, W. E. B. Du Bois attempted virtually every possible solution to address the problems of the twentieth-century: racism, propaganda, integration, national self-determination, human rights, cultural and economic separatism, and politics. All of these issues are still ones that we face today.
From the time he was born until his death, Dr. Du Bois embraced education as a way to raise the consciousness of the planet. Each of us has that same ability to expand ourselves and to change the world around us. To fully grasp the opportunity for us to create in our own lives, it starts with your ability to know your purpose and how can you serve. This will help you to know the truth for your own life. It is always best to start with the truth and to end with the truth. Your truth will depend on what you are doing with your life and where you intend to go. Each of us has a profound potential to change the world. Love your abilities, your cleverness, your splendid ability to connect with your intuition. We have forgotten to connect with this flow of energy. Wherever you are today there are still valuable lessons to be learned and the opportunity for you to contribute to life. Each of us has the power to determine our future but we must open ourselves to the same flow of energy available to great thinkers such as W.E.B. Du Bois to expand our journey.
