God Doesn’t Play Favorites

God Doesn’t Play Favorites

Though a self-actualizing agnostic with an “attitude” into my 30’s, the truth was I had always been a seeker, more often than not looking in all the wrong places. One of the questions which had always troubled me was the idea that God would suspend the laws He created to assist one but not another, that some form of pecking order or spiritual hierarchy existed, this thinking borne out by the seeming perceived unfairness in life. How could this be?

God must be consistent. If not, we would live in a chaos, not a universe. Would any sane loving Father throw one child to the wolves so another may prosper? Of course not. Today I understand this truth: “God is a God of love and rules by principle.” Because of His nature He cannot break the Divine Laws governing all creation.
God does not, will not play favorites. God wants each of us to be happy, joyous and free, demonstrating His love through us, for us, but He never intercedes if it stunts or hampers our spiritual awakening, as painful as the circumstances and consequences may be. Remember, the only instrument sharp enough to cut away the excess of self, is pain.This flesh, our body is finite, but our Spirit eternal, the lessons of enlightenment taking innumerable forms.

Seeing the world with the new pair of glasses this truth provides it becomes abundantly clear that God can do anything, but only within Divine Law and Principle, no one favored above another, each of us growing based on our actions and willingness, reaping the results our actions have sown, the Law of Attraction demonstrated. We can only live our life; walk the steps of our eternal path of enlightenment and though we all travel together, are connected in Spirit, our paths are like our fingerprints, though constructed of exactly the same materials, each is unique in execution.

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.
