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.

So, the ‘outside’ is feedback about the ‘inside.’ Literally.
Feedback: info, neutral information about a state or condition. Not judgment or
opinion simply information that can be used to decide if I’m on course or off
course. If the feedback indicates I’m on course, then I keep doing what I’m
doing. If it indicates I’m off course, then I choose actions that will put me
back on course. Either way, on or off course, the feedback is useful.
‘Inside’ and ‘outside’ are in single quotes to suggest the
lack of distinction between them. Given what the earlier posts have said, all meaning, decision making and
experience start on the inside. This suggests that only the ‘inside’ is real,
and further, that what we label ‘inside’ reality is only a temporary condition
that will pass as do the clouds obscuring the sun of our reality as spirit:
peaceful, joyous, fearless, creative and loving. When I get the clouds of my
bloated nothingness out of the way, the sun of divine reality are revealed.
So I want to use my experience, inner and outer, to learn
not to take things, both inner and outer, too seriously because they have no
effect on my inner peace as spirit. This does not mean I deny my pain,
sickness, fear or anxiety, only that I accept that the problem is not what I
think it is. The problem is not what I think is happening inside or outside,
but that I identified with the ego instead of spirit. My experience is not a
problem to be overcome, but only feedback, telling me I’m on course with spirit
or off course with the ego.
As long as my most fundamental beliefs about the world and
living are basedon original sin,
dog-eat-dog, scarcity, lack, duality and the separation of matter and spirit,
then I will see these reflected in my daily experiences. And by the same
principle, when I am able to not take the ego so seriously and am able to shift
from myself to mySelf and am open to spirit’s compassion, joy, creativity,
fearlessness, inclusion and abundance, I see these reflected in my daily
