The Water Of Life

The Water Of Life

Closer is He than breathing; nearer than hands and feet. -Tennyson. In truth, we are always in contact with Source, because we are of Source, not human beings in search of a spiritual connection, we are spiritual beings experiencing the human condition, the connection always there, if we are willing.

High in the mountains around the world small streams start when fed by rain and melting snow made up of infinitesimally small water molecules. These streams flow down their mountains, connecting with other streams, finally becoming rivers, rivers flowing perhaps thousands of miles before eventually merging with the ocean, the water molecules eventually traveling around the world, to the deepest recesses of the oceans, only to rise again to the surface and evaporate, returning to the clouds to fall as snow or rain once more, a journey repeated countless times over billions of years, source constantly renewed. Consider: these billions of year-old molecules are coursing through us at this moment, sustaining us, molecules which once fell as snow on the highest peaks, flowed down mighty rivers in every corner of the world and were frozen in glaciers for millennia in ice ages long past.

We are surrounded by wonder, the amazing complexity and interconnectedness of life in even the simplest things evident, if we will only take the time to consider. Though separated from one another by flesh, in truth, Spirit is the water of life, transcending all limitation or earthly constraints. So, when reaching out for Source, for God in prayer and meditation remember, look inward, for Closer is He than breathing; nearer than hands and feet, so drink deeply, for the Miraculous is most near indeed.

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.
