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 ego, myself,
always speaks first and is wrong. It says things like: “When the pain stops,
you’ll feel better,” or “when you get the new house, you’ll be happy,” or “if
it doesn’t rain, then it’ll be a great day.” All conditional, all based on the
outside-in thinking and believing, all middle men, as if my experience depends
on them. I don’t need these or any other middle men. I can go directly to
awareness of mySelf.
I can go. Do I?
Not often enough. I get bogged down in addressing the middle men – taking care
of the pain, getting the new house, hoping and praying it won’t rain. My
attention is drawn away from mySelf which is the ego’s goal. If I’m busy fing
around with the ego’s middle men, feeling alone and victimized, I’m not with
mySelf and my reality as a spiritual being having an earthly experience.
I want to eliminate the middle men. I’m sick and tired of
buying retail. I want to go direct to the supplier, the manufacturer, the
Source. And I can! How cool is that? I can and you can! We can know we’re
dealing with middle men, but not alone and not as victims.
When we hear the ego and experience its middle men, we can
understand what’s happening, agree that I’ll feel better when the pain stops,
or whatever, breath into it, give it over to spirit and with spirit, take
whatever action spirit—that deep inner knowing and intuition, suggest. Often no
action other than releasing and giving over is needed. Trusting the Source, releasing
the blocks—the middle men, giving them over and experiencing mySelf instead of
myself is so good and works so well! I want to do it more often!
