The True Path: Attraction, not Promotion

The True Path: Attraction, not Promotion

Part of the progression in our spiritual growth is the rise in our natural or soul “luminescence” as we demonstrate over the issues of life. As we begin to Live on the Spiritual Basis, day by day, people will naturally become attracted. As our inner light shines ever brighter even complete strangers will be take notice, seeking something they cannot name but subconsciously know they need, feeling it, seeing it with their Spiritual inner sight.  
They won’t know exactly why they are attracted (and under no circumstance should we try to explain the attraction), but they have questions and you appeal to their higher consciousness as someone with answers. Share openly and honestly your path with them, your struggles and successes, but under no circumstance evangelize or talk down to them from a “spiritual hilltop.” Answer the asked questions only and resist the urge to steer the conversation. Remember: real growth and understanding must begin within and though you have naturally grown into a guiding light, we must let them grow and learn at their own rate just as you did. So, speak from the heart, for when the heart speaks, hearts listen.

Now the rub: many have become attractions from walking the path, only to then lose themselves in spiritual pride. This terrible trap has snared untold numbers over time. Remember: just as the light bulb is the focal point of the light, the demonstration, it is the invisible power, the electricity, that lights it. So always remember, we are the messenger, the shining light, and Divine Love; God as we understand Him; is the message, the true source that powers this inner light. So, to avoid the deadly trap of spiritual pride we keep this in the forefront of our minds: in the eyes of the Miraculous, no one stands above another, all equally loved and honored, each responsible for their demonstration, their path, for we all reap as we have sown.

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.
