Rabbi Irwin Kula: Embracing the "Messiness" (Rebroadcast) As much as we might like it to be, life isn't orderly, it's messy. And, although most people yearn for things we believe will bring order - a better paying job, the love of a lifetime, a big house in the suburbs - most of our lives are lived in the space before and after the fulfillment of our deepest desires - and that space is messy. In fact, Rabbi Irwin Kula says that we should embrace the messiness of life, for that is what makes life worth living. Order, he says, can be profane and life-diminishing. Then again, he says the messiness of our lives is an indication of who we are: imperfect beings. Rabbi Kula joins us to explain this philosophy of living.
