Practicing the Yoga Of Love

The converse of Love is fear and fear is the mind killer, the destroyer of souls, the true death. Anger, spite, condemnation, resentment, ill will, all such things are just so many alternate expressions of fear, all constrictions upon the free flow of Life, is it any wonder the world is filled with hatred, sickness, and death? —that we grow old, and tired, and worn?—that the earth is desolated by wars, famine, and pestilence? Until we build up within our own soul a real and practical Love-consciousness, our other activities will be futile. When we truly embrace the Love-consciousness sufficiently, allowing for no exceptions, everything else will follow.

The Pathway of Love is open to everyone in all circumstances, and upon which we may step at any moment—at this moment if you like—requires no formal introduction, has no entrance examination. It calls for no expensive laboratory in which to work, because your own daily life and your ordinary daily surroundings and activities are your laboratory. 

The ONLY requirement to begin is to steadfastly expel from our mentality every thought of condemnation (to be clear: we must condemn wrong action, but never the actor), of resentment, and of everything which is contrary to the law of Love. We must not allow ourselves to hate—for any reason: any person, group, or nation for when we do, we are living in fear, not Love.

We must build up by faithful daily exercise a true Love-consciousness, upon which all the rest of our spiritual development will follow. Love will heal you. Love will comfort you. Love will guide you. Love will illumine you. Love will redeem us from fear, sickness, even death, and lead us into the promised land, the place that is altogether lovely. By choosing to follow the road less traveled, the path of Love, since all are truly connected in Spirit, not only do we raise our consciousness, but the whole world as well. So, our mantra needs to be: Let there be change, let there be Love, and let it begin with me.

This is the Yoga of Love.

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.
