No amount of money, resources,
exercise or just plain old “good living” will alter the reality we all have a
sell by date. The truth is simply this: Being human is a terminal condition
which raises an eternal question, are we this body or something more? Living on
the Spiritual Basis the answer is clear: We are Spiritual beings
experiencing the human condition, not Human beings in search of the spiritual for
the spark of consciousness unique to us is timeless, was never born and will
never die; has always been and will always be.
We raise our consciousness through prayer, meditation and selfless service, in
so doing we effect permanent change beyond the vagaries of the flesh, secular
living and thinking. So our job, the only real task in this life, is too
practice the Presence of God every day in every area, with everyone, to fully
forgive all who have trespassed against us, holding fast to the truth we are
not mere flesh but children of The Miraculous in every sense, our raised
consciousness transcending the strictures of time, the only true measurement of
our time here being: how much love did we give away, unconditionally.

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.
