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.

Thru, Not In
Mind, which is who and what I am as a spiritual being,
transcends the body. Mind works through
the body but not in it. Mind cannot
be made physical, but it can be made
manifest through the physical. So the New Testament idea that ‘the word (or
thought) was made flesh’ is a mistake.
If the mind believes the body is its goal, it will distort
its perception of the body, block its own extension beyond it to communicate
with itself in other seemingly separated bodies, which is its function and natural
tendency, and induce illness by fostering separation.
The purpose of learning is to lead beyond the body to the
re-establishment of the power of the mind in and thru it. This can be
accomplished only if the mind extends to other minds and does not arrest itself
in its extension. Allowing the mind to use the body only for its extension
through communication, becomes a beautiful lesson in communion, which has value
until communion is. This is spirit’s
way of making unlimited what I have made limited.
In the body of another, I can see the use to which I have
put mine. Seeing others as only bodies, belittles them and me. Spirit
interprets the body only as a means of communication, a link between Itself,
Its children and Its children with one another, enabling each seemingly
separate part of It to join with every other seemingly separated part of it to
make contributions to a world that works for everyone and everything in it.
