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.

The Never-Ending Process
I definitely wish and want the identity shift away from ego
to spirit to be done already! God knows, and She knows everything, that I’ve
been working on it consciously for a quarter of a century, so it’s time
already! But no, it’s a process, a seemingly never ending process. From an ego
perspective, this seems like punishment, like failure and inadequacy. Why can’t
I—the ego, get this done!Well, fact is,
the ego will never get it done, because that would mean its demise. So like the
old Playboy philosophy of ‘look but don’t touch’, the ego makes spiritual
noises, but will never be spiritual.
What moves me forward with the process of shifting is my
intention to move forward, my realization that I am spirit first, and my
compassionate understanding of how the ego works. Something else that helps
with the forward motion are my experiences of being light—of being pure,
fearless, limitless, creative energy.
Light is energy and energy is, like consciousness, ever present
in and thru all that is. Since there is no beginning or end to energy, so there
is no beginning or end to ‘me’—the non-ego me. Thus, when I awake from the ego
nightmare of life and get my bloated nothingness out of the way of the divine
circuits, all that’s left is my light--the natural joy, fearlessness,
compassion and creativity of spirit. It’s my intention to experience that light
more and more, to shift from ego to spirit and to keep on keeping on, even tho
the ego panics, yells, screams and berates me for wasting my time.
