Show Notes

Shiloh and Riley talk on various themes of peace. What part does myth play in both forming our identities and in bringing about peace? Riley and Shiloh use this discussion of myth to dive deeper into an understanding of how the Garden of Eden story is an example of the human journey, as it defines and develops our human experiences that lead us back to experiencing peace through partaking of the love of God. The Savior taught that we must empty ourselves of our natural man through being "poor in spirit," and it is through that experience of "emptying" ourselves that we experience our interaction with Cherubim and a flaming sword as spoken of in the Garden myth. Shiloh and Riley also discuss contemplative ways to read scripture in how to bring daily peace, as Riley leads us through a meditative reading of John 14:27. They conclude with talking about how expectations can lead us into living false realities that rob us of our peace.

A Contemplation Prayer on Peace:
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you...
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give...
Peace I leave with you, my peace...
Peace I leave with you...
Peace I leave with...
Peace I leave...
Peace.
