Some believe praying for oneself is somehow selfish, but this is at best a half truth and it is never selfish when we speak honestly from the heart. Every conversation; whether aloud or in our mind’s eye, with God is a prayer and Living on the Spiritual Basis we do not filter our conversations with the Miraculous, for if we do we are relying on our limited consciousness to manage our relationship with the Infinite, a text book example of limitation fear-tinged thinking. In truth, God already knows the issues of our heart, the conversation/prayer demonstrating our willingness, to step out in faith to taste Spiritual freedom, raising our consciousness as well as our fellows since all are connected in Spirit.
When our “eye is single” we understand what holds our attention manifests in our lives, changes our perceptions, our consciousness raised when our focus is Divinely inspired. God will not, cannot bring anything into our lives which will harm us or others, for good and God are synonymous, so never hesitate to speak to God on any subject, for in so doing our attention is focused on what truly matters, our relationship with “Our Father” from which everything else in life flows and in so doing we will comprehend serenity, find our true place and know peace. So, praying for ourselves is not only unselfish, it is required for our growth.

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.
