To be meek spiritually means we
have abandoned our old ways of thinking and living and have placed our feet
solidly on the path of enlightenment, no price too high to be free, embracing
Living on the Spiritual Basis with all our heart. Now, having grown up with
classic movies when I think of Moses I see Charlton Heston standing with arms
raised, staff in hand, robes flowing, hair and beard blowing in the wind
exhorting the Red Sea to part or staring down Pharaoh (Yul Brynner at his best)
exhorting him to “let my people go!” Not exactly the secular definition of meek.
Yet the biblical Moses was the epitome of Meek, spiritually, he was willing to
go to any lengths, face any challenge to be about the work of the Miraculous
and be free. In this light, to be “as meek as Moses” is a goal to strive for,
and though we may stumble for fear in its many guises and faces is an unremitting
foe, a day at a time we stand in the light, demonstrating faith over fear,
parting our “red sea” to freedom from the bondage of self.

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.
