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.

Hostage or Host?
Would I, and you, be hostage to the ego or host to spirit?
Spirit’s spark is already in us. Inviting a greater
awareness of it, thinking with spirit ever so slightly, causes the spark to ignite
and become an ever brighter light illuminating the ego’s darkness.
My willingness, and yours, to allow the spark to ignite need
not be perfect. If we offer just a little willingness, the spark will ignite
and grow ever brighter. But our willingness is essential. Spirit shares, It
will not thrust Itself upon us. Real freedom depends on welcoming reality, on
remembering ourSelves and allowing the spark to ignite.
Every healing thought I give and receive, every situation I
perceive as an opportunity to affirm my, and your, identity as spirit fans the
spark into flame. But remember, allow this to be the gradual process it is. We
will not burst into flames of divine perfection all at once. But each time you
and I nurture the spark and heed the still small voice, we become better and
more like ourSelves.
