The Power of Teshuva
Teshuva – תשובה
L”N Dovid Ben Shalom A”H
דוד בן שלום ע״ה
Doing Teshuva sounds extremely daunting!To change everything about myself and stop doing the things that I’m so accustomed to doing? That sounds way too difficult to even consider.
In a foundational and life altering teaching Rav Kook teaches that we have it all wrong.
The Yetzer hara does everything in his power to get us to believe this. It’s exactly what he wants. Once we think like that he’s already won.
The actual truth is that Teshuva predates the world and it is easy! Our belief must be that Hashem is there every step of the way. He calls for us every day as He is constantly encouraging us and leading us back to Him.
Recognize that His single desire for us is to let our neshama shine bright, to just take the first step towards Him, to make a single ever so slight movement in His direction, and you will have the strength to take that leap back to your true self and back to Him.
That is the true power of Teshuva!
