“The longest 18 inches in the world
lies between our head and our heart.” So many speak of The Miraculous and
spiritual principles with intellectual assent, many even believing speaking
about the Presence of God is akin to practicing it. This is akin to believing
looking at a meal, discussing it, dissecting it intellectually is the same as
consuming it. Clearly no stomach has ever been filled looking at or talking
about food, just as an intellectual understanding of God has never truly
quieted a single troubled heart. “When the heart speaks the heart listens.” No
one can eat a meal for another. No one can practice the Presence of God
in our life for us. God is not a concept, an aspect to be discussed politely
with little or no feeling or personal commitment. To “Claim our daily bread”
God cannot be simply intellectual in nature but must be expressed, outpictured
daily in our lives. In this way we “claim” the bread of spiritual enlightenment
and are filled, serenity manifest.

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.
