You have probably heard these bad luck superstitions,
maybe even repeated them yourself: step on a crack and break your mama’s back,
three on a match, a dead man’s shoes, breaking a mirror brings 7 years of woe,
a black cat crossing your path, spilled salt, anything 13, walking under a
ladder and so many more. Many unfortunately believe that this life can be
influenced by seemingly random occurrences like these. When we begin to Live
on the Spiritual Basis it becomes clear that life is filled with
uncontrollable and unavoidable moments of broken mirrors, sidewalk cracks,
13’s, black cats, spilled salt, etc. and the only power they possess is that
which we choose to give them. Living on the Spiritual Basis we now
know that the universe really is on our side, that our true inheritance as
children of the Miraculous is to be happy, joyous, and free. Believing in
superstitions denies the beauty and the power of this relationship. All
superstitions are curious self-imposed impediments keeping us from living to
our fullest, choosing to remain in the bondage of self rather than breathe
free. So, the next time you spill the salt, walk under a ladder or step on a
crack, laugh and thank God as you understand Him for being set free. And
besides, everybody knows black cats are cool, right?

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.
