Great question. Pure Spiritual is "surrender." All the professions you mentioned are "battle grounds." Fight and surrender... they are opposites. (with the exception of crusaders, who oddly enough have been struggling to find a way to combine the two!)

Well I think this is a generalization made by most people...my sister is a lawyer(prosecutor). She is very compassionate outside of the courtroom, she is highly spiritual. I'd have to say not only is that a high powered job but also that people aren't always like that in places of power.

For some of those jobs, the reason would be that they are highly competitive. Immoral people that are willing to do nasty things to achieve those positions probably have a better chance of ending up in those positions. This would explain the politicians, judges, corporate presidents, etc... More
