Little Blue Pills, Pit Stops, Hot Dogs and God

Little Blue Pills, Pit Stops, Hot Dogs and God

The secular world clamors with solutions for all our problems and concerns. Call this number and all your financial difficulties will vanish or take this or that pill for whatever ill, never mind all those pesky side effects. There is even a pill to cut down on bathroom trips and it seems that all middle-aged men need to take a little something in order to be intimate, if the number and frequency of ads is any indication. Do not misunderstand, all these things, probably, have their place, it is the order of approach that is at question. When we began living on the Spiritual Basis, we altered our approach to life. We accomplished this by stepping out in faith; realizing the Presence of God was our first step, in so doing then whatever action we take is embedded with Divine Love.

To Live on the Spiritual Basis means we have turned our will and our lives over to the care of God, it doesn’t mean that we withdraw from life or eschew the secular, since the Miraculous provides answers and solutions in all manner of ways, ordinary and extra ordinary alike. Remember, the power we have tapped into is not limited by human perspectives or understanding; it routinely performs the seemingly impossible, even miraculous if we, though perhaps trembling, remain open and willing. To borrow from an old Hebrew National hotdog commercial: today “We answer to a higher authority” and that authority wants all His children to be at peace; happy, joyous and free. Oh, and your trips to the bathroom will vary.

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.
