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.

Experience & Now
Spirit can only be experienced
and experience can only happen now. We can re-experience
spirit and other things now, but that is merely a memory of the past not an experience. We can know and experience our
spiritual reality, quietly and effortlessly, only now, in this moment.If we are experiencing fear, worry or
urgency, we are not in the now, not with spirit, but with ego thinking about
Now is an empty space, a blank page, a clean slate—a place
to be open and receptive to the still small voice of spirit within, an
opportunity for new beginnings. Often, the emptiness is frightening and our ego
selves rush to fill it with hopes, dreams, fears and worries.
But if we—Republicans and Democrats, men and women, can have
faith in our reality as spirit, stay with the emptiness and let our bloated
nothingness go, we are blessed with the experience of grace; rewarded with the
experience of effortless, quiet wholeness – the quiet knowing that we need not
worry, rush or suffer; that if we get out of the way, get our ego selves out of
the way, our Self, will come thru with exactly what we need, when we need it.
