Heathens In Our Head

Heathens In Our Head

Everything we say, do or observe is recorded. Everything. Not by God, or some heavenly scribe watching our every move, but by each of us. It is written upon our heart, in our hand, recorded in our subconscious. Every questionable or negative thing we have ever said or done (as well as the good, but the good is never the problem) is still with us and it often seems the Devil himself unleashes these “heathens in our head”into the forefront of our thinking in an attempt to destroy our peace of mind and heart and fill us with fear, shame and all manner of negativity.

To be clear, we have no control over the negative memories that float up from our subconscious, driven by the heathens of morbid reflection, but we have complete control over the action we take when we become aware of these berserkers attempting to destroy our serenity.Our course is simple, we turn from the lower to the higher in prayer and meditation as soon as we become aware of the assault. We turn the sunlight of the spirit upon the discordant thoughts and assert the truth of Being: that we have been forgiven, restored, completely and forever, that Our Father’s love is unconditional, with us, in us now; negative thoughts phantoms, insubstantial,powerless in the face of His love and guidance.

The heathens are patient and cunning so we must remain vigilant in order to address negativity and morbid reflection as soon as the assault begins. The truth will set you free and the truth is we are now living on a different basis, the basis of trusting and relying upon God. Upon this basis the record, all the record, of our lives becomes our greatest asset in helping others to freedom from the bondage of self, it’s value inestimable, heathens be damned.

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 https://livinginspirit.blogspot.com with accompanying videos that can be found as well on YouTube and LinkedIn at Vincent Lee Jones.
