“Opening to the power of intention, you begin knowing that conception, birth and death are all natural aspects of the energy field of creation.” Wayne Dyer
Everything is comprised of energy, everything. When dieting, people will often count calories to manage their weight. But how many know what a “calorie”really is? Well, it is a measurement of energy. A calorie is the amount of heat(energy) released by food as it is digested by the body as needed to raise the temperature of 1,000 grams (2.2 pounds) of water by one degree Celsius. See, now that you know, losing weight will be so much easier! OK, maybe not, but that is not the point. The point being energy is all around us, we are comprised of it, it is what propels everything and everyone and takes many forms we often take for granted or never bothered to consider.
The amount of energy required to burn off that pepperoni pizza from last night is one thing, of infinitely more importance is the amount of spiritual energy we will require today to handle the inevitable trials and tribulations of life. The good news is it’s all around us, available, and by opening ourselves to it with prayer, meditation and being of service to others, we tap an unlimited reservoir of intention, remembering this field of energy is the Great Creative Life Force itself, of which we are a part and parcel of.
So, if shedding a few pounds going into the New Year is the goal, maybe skip apiece of pizza or two, but never miss an opportunity to pray, meditate and be of service, for spiritual calories are never a bad thing and they always look good on you.

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.
