No matter what your external circumstances, you can take charge of your internal landscape. You can take charge of your response to outer stimuli. You can be liberated in prison (like my mindful stress management students were) or you can be imprisoned in your everyday life.

UK Terror Threat - Gunfire Detectors in 'Soft Targets' Could Save Lives

The introduction of gunfire detectors will help to save lives. Cutting the response time of armed officers, alongside providing them with accurate information about the location of an armed individual, will ensure incidents are dealt with as quickly as possible. During a time of tight financial constraints, the use of such technology offers a smart solution that is relatively low cost when taken in the context of the billions spent annually on anti-terror activities.

Decide not to fume and vent against the world, the window cleaner, your boss or the kids. Just be. Be still. Allow life to arise around you, and if you invest yourself in anything, let it only be things that bring love to the surface of your heart and soul.

At first it might sound evil, but when ISIS started their terrible massacres I felt hope. I was hoping that this time we would not mess it up and would finally stop ignoring this abnormal violence, that we would get enough bravery to fight the real problem, which is not today's murderers, like ISIS, but the ideology that will keep bringing us new killers tomorrow.

Let Us Not Overlook the Humanitarian Crisis in Iraq

Mike Adamson | Posted 19.09.2014 | UK
Mike Adamson

It is not our role to discuss how best to bring peace, but it is up to us to address the impact of the conflict on civilians and their humanitarian needs. The need to scale up assistance is great and urgent. Access will become increasingly difficult in some areas - already aid agencies have to negotiate to reach people in need on a daily basis. More supplies are desperately needed in order to support ever-growing numbers of displaced people. Iraqi Red Crescent and ICRC volunteers and staff must be able to deliver assistance safely. Let there be no doubt that the crisis in Iraq has developed into a humanitarian one - and that addressing it is what the term humanitarian means.

The reality is, whatever we are scared of and whatever the solution might be, we shouldn't force ourselves to do it and carry on regardless. Sometimes we need to look for alternatives or a way to discuss our fears and find somebody that is willing to help you resolve them.
