Quarantining Morbid Reflection

Quarantining Morbid Reflection

You have probably heard the admonition “we reap as we sow” often, but what does reaping and sowing in our consciousness really mean? Simply: The things we dwell upon, think about, will be out pictured in our lives. We reap the harvest of self-centered fear, self-imposed limitation, lack and failure when we entertain thoughts of violence, “getting even”, resentment in all its guises or condemnation of anyone or anything for any reason “for who would so unwise as to drink from a cup of poison expecting it to harm another.” All these crops are the fodder of Morbid Reflection, and reflecting morbidly, as spiritual teachers throughout history have taught, is an impenetrable barrier to that which we truly desire: peace, freedom, true place, happiness, in a word, Serenity.

Fortunately, though not easy, the way out is simplicity itself. When we find ourselves drifting into morbid (negative) thinking we stop immediately and “quarantine” the trouble by refusing to consider it and invoke, through prayer, the Presence of God, substituting God for the trouble in our minds eye. By doing this consistently we break the habit of focusing on the trouble (sowing negativity) and replace it with the habit of recognizing God (sowing truth) where the trouble seems to be. By refocusing we reap peace of mind instead of fear, serenity over confusion. Remember, everything we consider becomes imbued with power in our life, for good or ill, so get out the mental caution tape and immediately tape off destructive thinking, quarantining it with prayer, placing it in God’s hands.

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.
