How we respond to conflicts in our lives is an indication of our Spiritual condition. The usual ways most respond is to either square up and meet force with force (usually verbally) or to withdraw as rapidly as possible, the often remarked on fight or flight reaction. Living on the Spiritual Basis provides another path, a third way. As soon as we become aware of a troubling situation, directly or indirectly touching us, we immediately turn to silent prayer, seeing the situation and all involved in Divine Presence, bathing them and the situation in Divine Love, trusting in prayer and spiritual enlightenment for resolution. You will be amazed how often seemingly explosive situations will deflate rapidly by a simple heartfelt application of Divine Love. If, however, any direct action is required it will be made abundantly clear in an intuitive thought and though these times are exceedingly rare, we must not shrink if called to act.
Approaching conflict this way we tap into unlimited power and potential, rejecting human limitation and fear-based thinking and reacting, raising the consciousness and Spiritual condition of all involved for “When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.”

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.
