I think you refer to God the Father.  Who is God the father?? 
Peace seems to have several meanings.  Certainly real peacefulness is desirable.   However the peace that is of deep enlightenment is more than ordinary peace; it is described as light in scriptural texts.

 Meditation helps with reflection of aphorisms. One must come to  discern truth and wisdom for oneself. Scriptures of many traditions point the way, but that is different than one's own realization.

 Yea Richard, LIfe is not such an easy journey.  Understanding oneself is helpful, as well as studying what life is about.  You can if you want to bridge that gap, get back in touch with a person after the anger has escalated. It takes a lot of understanding and it takes surrender.

 for sure anger builds up. anyone can see that.  reflection on a situation without selfish intent can lead to discriminative thinking about a situation, and this can regulate type of appropriate response.

It surely takes time to attain 'full freedom."   Scriptures state and experience confirms that it is progressive.  Certain things lead like virtuous intentions and activities-- in the direction of freedom of mind.  Criticism and some other modes of mind lead in the other direction.  Study of the mind is helped by understanding the three energetics of light, action and inertia / sattva, rajas, tamas Gunas of nature.  They exist in the microsm and the macrocosm, and we can change according to their rules of natural operation.

 Breath practices especially Pranayama from Raja Yoga for managing the prana in the body-mind is an intervention that helps allay the effects of drug addiction.
Research states that Hatha Yoga helps remove stress, but does not bring sound sleep. On the other hand Pranayama meditation brought sound sleep to PTSD patients.

New Atoms Doing the Same Dance, by Richard Feynman

FaceBook  On May 14, 2011 Pratibha wrote:

New Atoms Doing A Dance.........    I think that the atoms and molecules are the evolutes of nature and they go on and on without a purpose except that there is always change in the world, in ourselves, in everything.  Everything comes and everything goes. Purpose? Yes and No.   Purpose is in fact the expression of the phenomenal world in all its many facets.  Humans being the last of the created creatures can direct its purpose more than any other creature.  It can transcend, transform, and know its consciousness as well as direct one's life toward this end.

Hmm, it would be interesting to know what Lopsang actually said to the child.  I agree that the communication as described was surely significant between the two, but the actual words to answer her question would be important too. 

What happens when people die--would we like to have that discussion?  I think it could be very  interesting.
