“The primary role of t’shuvah (repentance), which at once sheds light on the darkened zone, is for the person to return to herself, to the root of her soul.  Then she will at once return to God, to the Soul of all souls….It is only through the great truth of returning to oneself that the person and the people, the world and all the worlds, the whole of existence, will return to their Creator, to be illumined by the light of life.” (Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook)
