Video Shiur: Working on Self to help others | Strategies for Successful Teshuva (Repentance) | Likutey Moharan 38 #6
Doing repending (teshuva) to help others to do teshuva. You got to confess and turn around to help others to seek the Creator. They need to see you fearing Hashem to help them to fear Him too. Repentance comes by prayer, hitbodedut, speaking to Hashem in your prayer time. Asking Hashem to help you to turn away from your sins (averot). By doing hitbodedut (personal prayer) we discover our faults, and are able to be strengthened to do true repentance.
It is never too late. As Rabbi Yisrael Salanter was known to say: "As long as the flame is burning, we can still make amends."
For successful teshuva, we have to realize that God loves us – even in light of all the mistakes we've made. Realize that God understands you, that He's "cheering you on," and wants to help. Don't feel guilty; any mistakes you've made are part of a growth process to get where you are today. Growth is what God created us for, and even the hardships are the best thing for us. God is not the "big bully in the sky"; He's on your side.
The Talmud states that if you do teshuva out of love, you can even transform your mistakes into mitzvahs (Yoma 86b). Sort of like "dry cleaning for the soul."
