Real intelligence requires the study of history. Why? Because everything happening today has happened before; and will happen again if nothing changes. Studying history enables us to see the pattern in today’s events in their proper perspective and provides the opportunity to choose a different path. The wheel of time is constantly turning; good times turn bad, bad times good. Wars start, wars end, trouble comes, and trouble goes. When we view our lives and the world through a spiritual lens our perspective and understanding of truth alters, for now we see that no situation, whether good or ill lasts forever. Living on the Spiritual Basis we now understand this flesh we travel in is finite, its time on the wheel clearly marked by creation and dissolution, but the spark of the Divine, the “I AM” which is the true self, does not merely travel on the wheel, but is immanent, an actual part of the wheel. When we employ our intelligence to practice the Presence of God in every facet of our lives not only do we improve, but all humanity. The wheel will only follow a different path when we finally and forever truly put into practice the words on the back of every American dollar bill: “In God We Trust” “so let it begin with me.”
An avalanche can begin with a single snowflake, a great blaze with a single spark, so never underestimate your place or importance in the Universe, for you are a child of the Miraculous, God’s love incarnate.

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.
