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.

It’s not what you pray for, it’s where you pray from. It’s
not what you work towards, wish for or dream of that holds the power. It’s who
and what you identify with and think you are as you pray, work, wish and dream,
that holds the power. “Of myself I can do nothing,” the famous rabbi said. “It
is my father who doeth the work.”
It’s inside-out. When I identify with myself instead of
mySelf, I can work hard, struggle and do everything right and still not get the
results I seek. But when I identify with mySelf, instead of myself, I can be
free of struggle and hard work, do almost nothing and have the results fall
into my life like a ripe fruit falling from a tree.
It’s inside-out. It’s inside-out first. It’s not like it’s either
inside or outside. It’s both inside and outside. Results can be achieved either way, but inside out first gets the most accomplished with
the least amount of effort. Inside out first
is the most effective and efficient way to be. It’s about being a human being, instead of a human doing.
It’s accepting my oneness with the Source of all, in all and
through all – including myself as mySelf, and allowing It to flow through me.
It’s about removing the blocks to this flow; about getting my bloated
nothingness out of the way of the divine circuits. It’s about intuition, gut,
hope, wishes dreams and passion - the inside stuff - first, then rationality,
analysis, planning, structure and organization for support. It’s inside-out first. Not either inside or outside,
but both inside and outside.
