“If you have no time for prayer and
meditation, you will have lots of time for sickness and trouble.” Emmet Fox. Pretty much sums it up. Having placed our feet on the path
of Living on the Spiritual Basis our duty is to fit ourselves to be of maximum
service to God and the people about us, everything else secondary. We accomplish
this by wholeheartedly out picturing our belief in God’s perfect love and
guidance in every area of our existence, holding to the bedrock truth that God
will not, cannot, ask us to do anything beyond our present reach or would sacrifice
our integrity, stunt our spiritual growth or cause us pain and suffering of any
kind. “We are sure God wants us to be happy, joyous and free. We cannot
subscribe to the belief that this life is a vale of tears, though it once was
just that for many of us. But it is clear that we made our own misery. God
didn’t do it.” So, we hold to God’s love, and though often trembling,
stand; demonstrating the Truth of Being in prayer, meditation and service,
fulfilling our duty, not perfect but free at last.

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.
