Evicting a Negative Roommate

Evicting a Negative Roommate

Having embarked on the path of Living on the Spiritual Basis we have learned the value of surrender to positively change behaviors we, though we have tried, have been unable to change on our own. As a result, some obviously destructive behaviors: addiction, unfaithfulness, dishonesty (cash register variety) fall from us in due course. To be clear: we are not “cured” of the thinking which empowers these behaviors, but we have been restored to sanity in that we now know the cause: self-centered fear. As our path continues to unfold more subtle variations of destructive behaviors will come into view. The causes behind failed or broken relationships, estranged children and family, unsatisfying career choices, selfish and inconsiderate actions, etc. now evident: our fear-based thinking. Additionally, we have come to know that without our true commitment to grow and change, these truths, often uncomfortable to face but face we must, nothing truly lasting can be gained until we get down to causes and conditions.   

Living with raised consciousness today when we find ourselves in disharmony the path is clear, we stop focusing on the perceived problem or difficulty and turn to the Miraculous. We speak to God, as we understand God, in prayer specifically on the issue at hand and ask to be shown the correct course of action, then thank Him for knowing Him better and refuse to consider the issue again in anything other than positive spiritual light. When the issue attempts to drag us back, and it will, into disharmony, i.e. morbid reflection, we stop and turn back to God affirming the issue is now in His hands and is no longer our concern. This will feel uncomfortable, perhaps even silly and rather pointless when we first begin employing this new strategy for living, this is natural, for trusting and relying upon the Miraculous runs contrary to secular thinking and takes consistent work and dedication on our part to realize its fruits, but to succeed we must persevere. In time this will become second nature, with disharmony becoming an occasional visitor, no longer a roommate.

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.
