Yearnings: Embracing The Sacred Messiness of Lifeby Irwin Kula, Linda Loewenthal
The Biblical authors wrote about
Rabbi Irwin Kula explores desire in spiritual life. Rather than leading us astray, our longings are gateways to self-discovery. Our yearnings, once understood, can lead us to discover an expansive vision of God or a wider reality. And when we embrace even our most painful or taboo desires, we can love more deeply and live more fully.
The Biblical authors wrote about characters who, rather than leading perfect lives, actually struggled with their longings for success, love, sex, and happiness. Through interpreting those stories and other spiritual traditions, as well as exploring his own desires and those of regular people, Rabbi Kula shows that "The more we allow ourselves to unfold, the less likely we are to unravel. The more we dive into our desires, the more exquisite life becomes."
