Our past sins need not be seen as devilish and fundamentally dirty, as the proverbially demons which we forever chase. To the contrary, authentic teshuvah is an art of reframing, recasting uncomfortable failure as a welcome opportunity for personal growth. We do not castigate any aspects of ourselves, but rather redirect wayward passions of the past in new positive directions. All aspects of self are essentially beautiful, and able to find healthy, holy expression.
