MYRA ESTELLE

 

author, teacher, and life coach

The spiritual aspect of life has rarely been explored or expressed so clearly as it is in this enlightening book by Myra Estelle. Awakening Love: A Spiritual Quest Into Judaism looks beneath the surface of our separate, individual lives, and shows that deep inside every one of us is an invisible source of wisdom that is beyond our usual awareness. When we learn more about the wise, loving power we each have within us, we can better understand how to enrich our lives with its nurturance, and enhance all of our relationships.

These are the teachings of the Kabbalah, given in a way that’s very easy to understand.

This enlightening aspect of Judaism’s teachings hasn’t always been completely understood, even by some who were born into it, until now. Myra’s quest to explore the ancient guidance of her ancestors has uncovered this wonderful, empowering and uplifting wisdom to show us how we can each elevate our consciousness and awaken deep love from within. In Awakening Love: A Spiritual Quest Into Judaism, she invites people of every religion to discover the loving guidance that can be found in these teachings, and to learn how we’re all destined, when we’re ready, to ultimately create and experience a world at peace.

"So many individuals have no idea of the spiritual treasures at the heart of Jewish tradition. But Awakening Love: A Spiritual Quest Into Judaism by Myra Estelle is a cause for celebration. This beautifully written book reveals the truth: Judaism is a deep, profound, and nourishing spiritual path. I highly recommend this uplifting and inspiring new gateway to the Divine."

ARTHUR KURZWEIL

   author of On the Road with Rabbi Steinsaltz (Jossey-Bass)

"Awakening Love: A Spiritual Quest Into Judaism by Myra Estelle is an intriguing presentation of the meditative spiritual aspect of Judaism. The author develops the topic in a sequentially articulate fashion, continuously maintaining a discernible connection to the masorah! This book can be a useful addition to the serious scholar as well as to the general public."

—RABBI MORDECAI TENDLER

Introduction

I used to study with a famous rabbi who would occasionally pause from his teachings, take a deep sigh, and say, “What do we know?” He was a brilliant scholar who could make the Torah come alive for us, so I knew he wasn’t questioning any rabbinic knowledge or any validity in the observance of halachic laws. I knew that he was talking about the underlying flow of life that sometimes takes us in directions we don’t always understand, and leads us to challenges that we have to learn to overcome. He was questioning what we know of the ways of God.

Life is so unpredictable. The greatest of plans can go awry, or unfold in ways we could never have foreseen. Even with the best of intentions, problems can arise. And yet there can be so much joy too; wonderful experiences can occur when we least expect them.

It’s often been said that the more we know, the more we realize we don’t know, but I’m still convinced that we need to know more than we do at the present time! Now, more than ever, we need reassurance that we are here on this planet for a reason. The world appears to be broken up into so many disparate, conflicting parts since September 11th that many of us have paused to wonder what life is really about. It seems impossible to piece it all together into a cohesive whole. How are we supposed to make sense of these challenges? What can we do to make life more understandable? How can we find a way to live in the world that will support and reassure us?

For thousands of years ancient teachings have told us that there is a way to rise above all of life’s complexities. This is a way that takes us beyond what we usually believe to be known, and gives us insight into an infinite support system of consciousness that can sustain every one of us all at the same time. Even if we don’t notice its presence, we all tune in to this system because it exists within and around us, creating an invisible, synchronistic harmony that can only eventually be realized through our own personal experience.

Gradually it can become very clear that every single life on earth is precious, including our own. The term "holy" means "precious," in the way that a priceless jewel is precious, so when the Torah says: "You shall be holy, because I am holy" (Leviticus 11:45), it is really saying: "You shall realize your preciousness, because the brilliant consciousness of the whole universe is precious, and you are part of it."

Awakening Love

A Spiritual Quest Into Judaism

Awakening Love Excerpt

According to Judaism we are all here for a very powerful reason:

we are here to create a physical space for the consciousness of the universe to flow into humanity and express its own harmony throughout the physical world. When we each discover what we love to do, we experience within us the supportive flow of this harmony, which is continuously in existence in the oneness. By transmitting this harmony into the world through our lives and our work,

we can cooperate with each other more productively, and experience joy and a sense of satisfaction that can be exhilarating.
