The judging of others is a greatly
misunderstood Spiritual principle. We not only should judge the behavior of others
but Living on the Spiritual Basis makes it a
requirement. The difficulty arises when we confuse righteous judgment with
When we condemn it places us in a position to be harmed, for we have assumed a
morally elevated position, an attitude of “better than” if you will,
which of course is false. No one is above or below another in the sight
of God. Though our paths may be very different, our challenges and lessons in
life diverse, no one is beyond grace and forgiveness in Spirit which always manifests if we truly mean
business, desiring change. This does not mean crimes and transgressions are
forgotten or ignored, but we must be willing to go to any lengths for
salvation, for the ultimate freedom from the bondage of self. So, we condemn
the act, not the actor.
All reap as they have sown, and unfortunately some will never seek
enlightenment, choosing fear over freedom. However we are mistaken if we condemn them or wish (or worse desire) harm
to anyone. Hate does not cease with hate. Anger is never assuaged with more
anger. Condemnation never builds character or leads to freedom.
So judge righteously and the whole world improves, condemn and we all suffer for
we are all connected in Spirit, all children of the Divine Presence.

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.
