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.

Experienced, Not Explained
The truth of our reality as spiritual beings having earthly
experiences can only be experienced.
It cannot be described and in cannot be explained, even tho I keep trying to do
that in these blogs and elsewhere. The ego’s world, even with the best of
everything—health, wealth and happiness can add nothing to who we really are already
– without further effort - children of God. But the ego’s world can blind us to
spirit when we identify with it.
It is not possible to identify with the ego world and know
our reality. Only one is true. Our experience of our reality as spirit--grace,
unconditional love, deep calm, certainty and knowingness saves us, not from
ourSelves but from our illusions of ourSelves. Our joy in the ego’s world, even
with the best of everything—health, wealth and happiness is fleeting, leaving
us with an ‘is that all there is?’ feeling, because nothing but the realization
of our reality is worthy of us.
This is not to suggest we renounce life and go live in a
monetary. We believe we are here in the ego’s world and will go on seeking the
best of it for ourselves and everyone and everything else. But it is to suggest
that we seek our truth and reality first,
understanding that the whole power of ourSelves lies in all of us and not
in anyone of us alone. Our function as spiritual beings first, is to work
together, because apart from each other we cannot function at all.
Just as the truth of our reality as spiritual beings having
earthly experiences can only be experienced,
not described nor explained, so our reality as one child of one father/mother
must be experienced to be known. We’ve all had a taste of this in group
activities and teams when somehow, miraculously, it all comes together and we
accomplish something grand, something none of us could have accomplished alone.
