We need to find someone who can reprove us in such a way that our souls become more fragrant rather than more repugnant.
We need to find someone who can strengthen our belief in God and in ourselves. We have to ask God to allow us to find such an individual whose teachings will open our eyes to see the beauty and power of the soul and how totally foreign sin is to us.
When we understand this lesson we will be able to retrieve much of the kedushah (holiness) that we have lost over the years.
