Cause And Manifestation

Cause And Manifestation

Ever watch a music video? Whether it is a classical pianist, violinist or someone shredding on an electric guitar or drum kit, where does the camera typically focus? On the instrument. Sure, there will be shots of their face and other musicians interspersed, but most of the time the camera will be focused on the instrument. Why? Well, that is where the action is. But in truth, the hands playing the instrument are merely the physical manifestation of the music being created, the cause of the music is within the musician, unseen. 

The Miraculous, God, is cause. We are manifestation. But unlike the musical instrument, we have free will and can choose to reject the music we know in our heart of hearts will set us free. Faith without works is dead. Intending to act honorably, be of selfless service to others, to forgive are all wonderful thoughts to hold, but if we fail to act in a righteous manner, though the cause, our thoughts righteous; the manifestation, our actions are not which leads to suffering in Spirit since we have decided to reject freedom for the fear directed voice of self.  

Living on the Spiritual Basis we have come to understand the Miraculous works through us, it is the cause and we are the manifestation of Divine will and Love. Our job, our only real task in this life is to prepare ourselves to be the best possible instrument of His will. We accomplish this by employing daily prayer and meditation, embracing forgiveness for all, performing a daily constructive inventory of our actions coupled with selfless service to those struggling. And just as the camera focuses mainly on the instrument, so the world sees us, but we know the truth: we are manifestations of Divine Love, messengers of freedom from the bondage of self, true cause on display.

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.
