We have to know the structure of reality in order to understand the meaning of Selichot. We are all connected in one system, but this system is shattered.We have to fix the network between us since it will not be corrected by itself and will only reveal more and more how torn it is. The right forgiveness is an outcome of the recognition of evil in us, in our attitude to love and mutuality, which should be in the corrected system. We ask for forgiveness for not having set a good example for others. It isn’t just lip service but an examination of where we have neglected the correction of the connection between us. There is no point starting a new year, a new change, before conducting serious soul searching and examining whether we have tuned ourselves correctly.
