The Zombies Of Morbid Reflection

The Zombies Of Morbid Reflection

Resentments are persistent things, a lot like zombies. When we reflect morbidly on the past we are engaging in mental grave robbing. Now, no matter what else we do, until a zombie is dealt with, typically by shooting them in the head if the movies are accurate, they will keep coming back inflicting more havoc and much like zombies resentments move slowly but steadily. Morbid reflection usually starts when we begin rehashing an old hurt, infusing it with new life, often without even remembering how we started down this path of thought in the first place. This mental grave robbing happens when we backtrack on forgiveness. Now Zombies never have our best interests in mind, in fact they just want to eat our brains. Morbid reflection does exactly the same thing, except it is from the inside out.

To be free of morbid reflection we must forgive, in thought and deed, those who have transgressed against us. Additionally, we must forgive ourselves for all our transgressions, real and imagined. As the Great Carpenter taught… let the dead bury the dead (Matthew 8:22), leave resentments and old hurts in the peaceful ground of forgiveness, lest we unearth a morbid reflection zombie and we all know how hard they are to evict once they take up residence.

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.
