Description: Life is messy and imperfect. Living in this world is anything but simple. Facing disasters, betrayals, and family problems, we yearn for answers clear paths, comfortable...easy solutions. And we shouldn't. That's the message at the heart of Irwin Kula s remarkable first bookYearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life . In fact, Kula says, the messiness is the sacred stuff that keeps us growing. And our ever present yearnings for meaning and purpose, for love and happiness to make sense of it all define our spiritual path and lead to wonderful opportunities and discoveries. After all if you've never had dirty dishes in the sink, you've probably never had a home cooked meal.
