Podcast 70: Mending the Divides with Jer Swigart

Reboot (3)

A modern-day peacemaker, Jer Swigart has found himself contending for restoration in beautifully bizarre corners of our global village. Whether in the tribes of northern Pakistan, the slums of India, the red-light districts of Southeast Asia, the violence of Israel and Palestine, or the racial injustice of his own neighborhood, Jer loves people in a way that disarms violence and dismantles divides.

He joins us in episode 70 at Let The Music Play Podcast as we discuss his book Mending the Divides: Creative Love in a Conflicted World.

Don’t forget to pack these.

Intentions – They will be your map.

Set your intentions to create and acquire, to give and to receive, and to enjoy and to be. If you’re only intent is to get a job or obtain a college degree, expect frustration when that intention comes to fruition.

Values = They will be your compass.

We all need a North Star….A song to know and claim in the midst of the noise…Mantras to engage when the headwinds hit us. Align these values with the grain of love. This won’t fail you.

Wisdom = She will be your companion.

Never walk away from Wisdom—she guards your life;
    love her—she keeps her eye on you.
Above all and before all, do this: Get Wisdom!
    Write this at the top of your list: Get Understanding!
Throw your arms around her—believe me, you won’t regret it;
    never let her go—she’ll make your life glorious.
She’ll garland your life with grace,
    she’ll festoon your days with beauty. Proverbs 4:6-9

Transformation

Before you label it good or bad…

…before you critique it as right or wrong…

…before you define ‘them’ and ‘those’ as in or out…

…or before you grant yourself the freedom to judge – give yourself the opportunity to just be.

Now you can be with the moment.

Now you can be in the moment.

Let the moment work on you before you work on it.

This is the art of allowing.

This is how one becomes available to what life is ushering forth on your behalf.

Life just happens to be woven and composed with the purposes of transformation. We see it everywhere if we will only stop, look, and acknowledge.

Just ask the trees or the person(s) you most admire.

You’ll see their branches, but they’ll tell you stories about their leaves.
