Spiritual Cafeteria

Spiritual Cafeteria

“The universe is run exactly on the lines of a cafeteria.” Emmet Fox. And just as the food at the self-serve cafeteria, all the gifts Grace provides are laid out before us, but it is up to us to take the action to claim them, for just as the self-serve cafeteria where we can sit waiting, watching others eating all around us, we will remain hungry until we act. To be filled Spiritually we must claim our nourishment, “paying” for it by truly embracing Divine Love, forgiving all, refusing to embrace resentment or condemnation of anyone or anything for any reason, putting into action and demonstration the truths we have come to hold in our heart, while resisting the alluring spiritual shortcuts arrayed before us which ultimately lead only to frustration and morbid reflection. These shortcuts or seemingly “easier softer ways” are like trying to live on cafeteria Jell-O and desserts alone. Though colorful, tasty, and satisfying in the moment, trying to live solely on them leads only to ill health and problems, while Spiritually these shortcuts are deadly. Spiritual Jell-O, you heard it here first.

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.
