All are equal in God’s eyes, what determines our peace
of heart and mind is how we practice the within, without. When our actions run contrary
to the truth we have come to know and embrace, to believe in the word but fail
to live by the word leads to our suffering. When we fail to stand for what’s in
our Heart, the truth as we have come to know it, we reap spiritual unease. Our
fear of possibly offending someone or being perceived as some kind of “Holy
Roller” is typically at the heart of it. But this discomfort is always self-inflicted, a reminder of Fear’s
power in our lives, for in fact, truth is what sets us free. So, just for
today, by His Love and guidance, choose to stand for the truth, serve it up
with tact and joy, never attacking or belittling another and if we find they
are not receptive, we leave them with a silent prayer of peace and a blessing,
standing ready to be of service, if asked. And in those times when we have feet
of clay, for it happens to all of us, His Love, guidance and unconditional
forgiveness will set our feet back on the path, removing our discomfort, for we
are all truly blessed, loved beyond measure.

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.
