Complete Forgiveness

Complete Forgiveness

One of the keys of freedom in life is when we finally accept most of our troubles are rooted in selfish deceitfulness, born of the thinking we can show the world one face while hiding our true feelings and motives. This error compounded if we believe our thoughts are somehow separate from God, that the Miraculous does not know what we are thinking and feeling. Considering the truth about the Presence of God: that He is immanent, permanently pervading and sustaining all the universe; this type of thinking is weak at best and downright delusional at its worst. The natural outcome of this spurious belief is to shut us off from the sunlight of the spirit as surely as burying our head in the sand cuts us off from sunlight and air.

When this realization hit me years ago it sent me into a tail spin. All the secret thoughts I believed I had so neatly hidden from God, in truth had been always open to Him. As the significance of this rolled over me I found myself on my knees, asking God to remove from me my illusions there is anything about me He does not know or is separate from Him.

This marked the point in my life when “forgive us our trespasses” from the Lord’s Prayer became truly known to me, becoming a working part of my life. I began to accept His forgiveness that day and the process of understanding how important it is to truly and completely forgive others began in earnest and though this happened many years ago, the lesson is as fresh today as then.

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.
