Each of us have “two masters” and we always serve one
or the other: our carnal often fear driven human mind or our Spiritual Heart.
Understanding spiritual principles is important, the filling of our mind with
spiritual knowledge the first step. The curious thing about spiritual knowledge
though is many believe acquiring it is the goal, application situational.
Consider: having a great deal of medical knowledge doesn’t make one a doctor,
to truly become a doctor we must first acquire knowledge and then under careful
experienced supervision put this knowledge into action, turning learning into
experience, moving from the theoretical to the real; in Spiritual terms, from
head to heart.
This maxim holds true in every area of life, but no area more important than
our spiritual life, yet many fail to walk the way they talk. In pursuit of
material and secular success individuals often go too tremendous lengths; while
willingly ignoring the Spiritual imperative, “life” success measured in
material possessions and accolades; their actions demonstrating their true
heart’s desire while living at odds with the Spiritual imperative. A head full
of spiritual knowledge without the corresponding demonstration amounts to a
half measure, and spiritually half measures avail us nothing. Only we know if
“we walk the way we talk”, only we know in our heart of hearts which master we
serve. Choose wisely.

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.
