“The Talmud teaches something very profound: When somebody repents out of awe, out of fear- their sins are absolved. When someone repents out of love, their sins become mitzvot.

 

When somebody makes mistakes or experiences a tremendous downfall in life but they manage to get up and to re-create their life there is something in the depth of the new life that exists only because of the mistake…

 

Because it’s the negative experience that when you convert it into a positive energy – gives the positive energy a depth that it never had on its own.”
