Respecting the Law of Attraction

Living on the Spiritual Basis requires respect for all, regardless of station or whether we like or agree with them. This does not mean we open ourselves to being harmed with a Polly Anna simplistic view, since there are people with bad intentions in the world,a few minutes of today’s news will readily confirm this.

But we must focus on the positive to maintain our freedom from the bondage of self. As a wise man said, “there is a little bit of bad in the best of us and a little bit of good in the worst” and we must recognize, and even salute the spiritual heart, the good, in all. So, we never place ourselves knowingly in a position to be hurt, and if we are, we pray for the actor while condemning the action. Though many have good intentions, often their actions are lacking and in truth we are all measured by the things we do and say, for good or ill, such is the Law of Attraction.

So be quick to salute and acknowledge accomplishment and just as quick in prayer for those stumbling, always seeking the higher road of raised consciousness, avoiding the pitfall of spiritual pride, condemning the act, not the actor. In this simple way we respect all, while affirming this cosmic truth: we all reap as we sow. Miracles Of Recovery.

Silk sheets or city streets, Park Avenue or park bench, addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer of lives. My name is Vincent Lee Jones and I have been in recovery since September 1985. My professional career began when I was nearly 20 years in recovery and was asked to work pro bono with at risk students at Huntington Beach High School. At the time I had developed a reputation within the at large recovery community as an effective communicator and was known to some of the faculty. After the death of two students from prescription drugs I was asked to start working with at risk students, which I did for nearly 5 years. Word of mouth lead to offers of compensated freelance Facilitator and Director positions with numerous local treatment facilities in the ensuing years. As a retired Building Contractor/Designer, working in conjunction with a treatment facility, I created a construction program utilizing a workforce comprised almost exclusively of people new or returning to recovery, helping them to not only learn a trade and start making a living but since many of them had relapsed numerous times, to begin truly building a foundation with real aftercare to live free of active addiction. This program changed many lives. In my 30+ years in recovery I have worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, teenagers to the retired, famous to infamous, prosperous to those living hand to mouth, adamant atheists to those embracing strong Religious beliefs; suffering from all manner of intoxicant and behavior-based addictions as well as those who love and care about them, both as a member in recovery Fellowships and as a treatment professional. I can be contacted at 714-366-1725. I write and publish daily a recovery based nondenominational spiritually based blog at with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
