The Timetable

The Timetable

When we first begin our spiritual journey in earnest, embracing definite and consistent spiritual practices is an important fundamental. By choosing set times and forms this provides the foundation and the necessary discipline on which we build. In good time, as we become more adept, seasoned if you will, many of the simple guidelines and structure we began with will naturally fall away. Most importantly this happens with no thought or conscious effort on our part, when it is time for change it will happen organically. Think of it this way: when we plant a garden would we expect the plants to grow and mature to our timetable? Of course not, nor would we foolishly attempt to harvest our crop before it was ready. The application of water, sunlight, nutrients; coupled with our diligence in the quick removal of impediments to growth, all affect the health and stability of our garden and the size of its bounty.

Our spiritual growth is just like all other natural growth in that it is affected by numerous factors. So, we tend our spiritual garden diligently while refusing to concern ourselves with timing, focusing instead on the work before us this day. In time the fruits will present themselves at exactly the perfect moment of awakening.

What sets our Spiritual garden apart is it is eternal and will continue to give forth nourishment unabated as long as we keep our eyes on the Miraculous, the true source, avoiding the fear based temptation to pull our crop up prematurely to check the roots for signs of progress. Remaining diligent, but patient, soon we will find that our understanding and demonstration has reached new heights, our Spiritual garden blossoming as we cultivate still greater awakenings and paths of service, becoming closer, day by day in thought and deed to truly practicing Divine Love toward all, the true demonstration of our coming of age spiritually.

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.
