Sometimes it seems as if everything in life is conspiring against our having peace. The dog is barking, the kids are fighting, you're stuck in traffic and you just had an argument with your spouse. In the midst of all of this unrest, how is peace possible?

The answer to this question depends in part on how you define peace. One way to define peace is simply the absence of conflict. If you can resolve whatever conflict you are facing, then you can have peace. But when conflict rears its head, peace runs out the door, and it won't return until the conflict is settled. This notion of peace is a good start, but it is also fragile, because it is totally dependent on your circumstances.

A stronger definition of peace is one that allows you to rise above your circumstances and remain calm despite the storm raging around you. It is a sense of assurance that no matter what happens, things will eventually get better, and that somewhere, someone trustworthy is in control.
 
This sort of peace is not dependent on circumstances. Rather, it allows you to see beyond your surroundings and fix your eyes on a point in the distance that allows you to hold steady on your course and ride out the storm.

But still, that Jeremy Kyle though. The man is a self satisfied, smirking, sanctimonious little toad. His 'researchers' must trawl the most disenfranchised pockets of every town and city, then dig deeper still till they uncover the most needy, the most neglected, the most ratings worthy amongst them. They then hi-jack them, lured with promises of a wee bit of cashand two nights in a hotel in London. They parachute them in, let them out on the town and then bring them on the show the next day when they're feeling rough as guts -and looking hungover too! Then, the lovely researchers who have catered to their every need with fawning haste, hand them over to the monster who is Kyle. He sits at their feet, his open honest face glowing with all the 'British Goodness' of a regular Daily Mail reader. His concurrent themes of 'get a job man', 'step up to the mark and be a dad', 'madam, you are a tramp' and 'the DNA test results say that you Johnno...' drive me berserk as his victims look astonished at their first taste of 'nasty' since they were targeted as potential shock material. Scape goat syndrome, trailer trash syndrome, call it what you will, but there's always someone worse off than yourself isn't there? Makes you feel a whole lot better about your life doesn't it? And of course, there's always the offer of counselling or other advice from oor 'Graham' after the show. I need counselling myself after just five minutes of this man's posturing and manipulating. He's the worst kind of media shark - capitalising on people's misery, holding them up to public ridicule and destroying the lives of many innocent people who are conected to the unfortunate 'star for a day'. Can you imagine, sitting down with your toast and marmalade to watch, and someone you once had a brief fing with ensconced in 'the chair; surrounded by bouncers whose only qualification seems to be baldness and ready to spill not only his beans, but yours as well. Whoa, nope, no way, as you choke on your toast, but it's too late. In 25 seconds he's claimed paternity of two of your kids, accused you of sleeping with a random stream of strangers and is telling the nation you owe him 25k. They must be raking it in this lot - and when the 'star for the day' gets sent home, home to the same unaltered life, they feel cheated and embittered. Get this man off our telly - he is an insult to anyone with half a brain!  Not that I tune in of course...

More fool the people that go on it i say he's been on long enough for them to know how it's gonni go, i like his approach though he's direct and stern when needbe.These shows are mostly scripted anyway are they not? Jeniffer Saunders.. mind she did the spin off comedy on chat shows a few months back said they discovered this in their research for the series. Of course i agree that people who go on shouldn't be minipulated beforehand in any way that's very wrong, this guy though has done a heck of a lot unrelated to the show as a voice for fathers who undeservedly aren't allowed access to their children, Graham too has helped a very good few with all sorts of problems well away from the cameras and i don't think he's a bad bone in his body, if so then he's a heck of a good actor!  .........should i duck noo councillor?

One realizes the full importance of time only when there is little left of it. Every man's greatest capital asset is his unexpired years of productive life.

A MOTHERS   LOVE   

 By unknown Author

 

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00
For going to the store for you: $.50
Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25
Taking out the garbage: $1.00
For getting a good report card: $5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00
Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he'd written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me:
No Charge


For all the nights that I've sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you:
No Charge

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you've caused through the years:
No Charge

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead:
No Charge

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose:
No Charge

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is:
No Charge.

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said,
"Mom, I sure do love you." And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: "PAID IN FULL

A sense of a goose

Next Autumn, when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in a "V" formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily, because they are travelling on the thrust of one another.

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.
If we have the sense of a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are heading the same way we are.

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.
It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether with people or with geese flying south.

Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
What message do we give when we honk from behind?

Finally - and this is important - when a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out of the formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies; and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their own group.
If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.
