Teshuvah is rooted in the heart


"Teshuvah always resides in the heart; even at the moment of sin, the impulse for teshuvah is hidden in the soul, radiating influence which will be revealed later, with the arrival of the regret that calls for teshuvah. Teshuvah resides in the depths of existential life, for it preceded the universe, and before sin arrives its teshuvah is already prepared.

"Therefore, nothing in this universe is as certain as teshuvah, and, ultimately, all will be repaired."

(Rav Avraham Yitzchak haKohen Kook, Orot haTeshuvah 6:2)

Have a great day,
