Metaphysics and Metallurgy

Metaphysics and Metallurgy

“God doesn’t choose the prepared, He prepares the Chosen” and in truth, all are Chosen, if they chose to be, but it requires work. Consider: tempering a piece of steel with heat improves not only the hardness but the elasticity of the metal and it has been said that God tempers His strongest instruments in the hottest fires. So, how does this spiritual tempering process work in our lives? Trouble comes, sometimes called by our actions, often however appearing at our door uninvited. Regardless, how we react is paramount. We all have known individuals who are or have been broken in spirit, perhaps you have seen their reflection in your mirror. To become one of the Chosen we must choose to walk the path of forgiveness over resentment and condemnation, condemning the transgression, not the transgressor, embracing Divine Love over the true adversary: Fear in all its many guises; placing ourselves in the forge of redemption.

In the hands of the master metallurgist all iron-based alloys can be tempered. It may require great effort, skill and much energy, but it can be done. Metaphysics is the metallurgy of the soul. No matter how weak or emotionally brittle we may feel, The Master Soul Metallurgist can transform anyone, regardless of past mistakes and transgressions. There is a requirement however that steel does not have to meet: willingness, for willingness is the key to freedom, and to be Chosen, first we must be willing to go to any lengths for our Spiritual awakening. 
Unlike steel where the process has an ending, Spiritual tempering continues throughout our lives. Often our heart will feel heavy, weighed down by the seeming inequities of the world, other times we will feel as though we have wings, as light as a feather, but this matters not. The Spiritual elasticity and strength we have gained allows us to bend, but not break, meeting calamity with serenity, weathering the storms about us with an even mind and quiet heart. A beacon to all who long to be free of the fear driven life.

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.
