A Sea of Laurels

A Sea of Laurels

Living on the Spiritual Basis provides unlimited horizons for growth and expanding our consciousness, but we must take the action. Think of it this way: Our consciousness floats in a infinite sea, this sea connecting everyone and everything, Divine Love surrounding us. When we made the decision to live on a different basis, the basis of trusting and relying upon a Power Greater Than Ourselves we choose to move away from the islands of fear, selfish and self-centered pursuits and toward increased awareness and purpose, our consciousness, our relationship/connection with true source improving as we progress. This however requires steadfast and consistent effort on our part.

Now, no one spends all their time in the sea. We all climb out from time to time for a variety of reasons and rest on our laurels along the shore, the laurels (think peace of mind and heart) generated from the spiritual work we have done, the truths we have embraced. The problems begin if we attempt to set up camp, believing we have arrived, losing sight of the reality that our continued growth rests in our willingness to continue moving forward, exploring, since our spiritual awakening is an ongoing process. But take heart, we have all done it; perhaps you are doing it now. Whenever I have it does not take long for the leaves to dry out, becoming hard and stiff, resulting in restlessness and a vague sense of discontentment, encouraging action.So, when the leaves begin to stiffen, take note, and get back in the sea, for something wonderful lies just beyond the horizon.

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.
