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.

A Universal Experience of Love
My intention is to have experiences
of spirit more often; to allow these to undo my ego’s sense of separation,
alienation and specialness.Beliefs
about how to do this vary, and so it’s not possible to have a universal belief
system. Yet such differences are meaningless, for all can serve the single
purpose of moving us beyond the form to the universal experience of love.
I don’t have to agree with everyone and can’t. But I can
experience differences as an opportunity to learn, to see the ego world as a
classroom in which to learn that though we may differ on the level of form, our
content—either an expression of love or a call for love, remains the same. Form
is irrelevant, content is all.
Many religions seem to have forgotten this, substituting the
rituals of love for the experience of love. Love alone is constant. Once put
into form, theology or belief, uncertainty is introduced because not everyone
will agree. Brains differ, but the mind is one—both the wrong minded ego—the
call for love, and the right mind of spirit—an expression of love. That’s why
the experience of spirit’s love is so important. A universal theology is
impossible but a unitary experience of spirit is not.
