Being considered a professional is important. But most of us are 'old' professionals, not old in age, but old in thinking style and approach to living. Old professionals separate science and spirit and think in terms of either/or - 'you're either for me, or against me.' New professionals connect science and spirit and think in both/and terms.

God as It
“God does not forgive because He has never condemned”—The Course in Miracles
And ‘He’ has never condemned because as I posted last time,
‘He’ is an ‘It,’ not a ‘He’—a neutral power like gravity or electricity, but
greater and all encompassing. The gravity is not responsible when a building
collapses. The gravity does not keep score, judge, punish, nor reward, it is
just there, a force we can use or misuse.When a building collapses it’s probably because we misused the
gravity—bad design, construction, etc. So it is with God.
People dislike this view of ‘God’ because it makes them
responsible for what happens in their lives. It’s very stark, very
clear—there’s no one or no thing to blame, just ourselves. Much easier to be
the innocent victims of a nasty, vengeanful God—I mean, after all, I’m just
doing the best I can, right; shit happens! Aren’t there “Acts of God” in all
our insurance policies?
Bull shit! There’s no one and no thing to blame but
ourselves! But hey, why blame at all? Why not just finally learn how the world
works and take responsibility for doing things differently, for using the power
correctly? It’s a little difficult at first, growing up always is, but my, what
a difference, what a positive difference being responsible and in-charge makes
in our experience of living!
