This video encapsulates my growing and learning for Elul 5779, preparing for Rosh Hashana 5780. It describes hitbodedut, or speaking out loud to God and asking for help, to do teshuva (returning to goodness) for wherever we missed the mark and fell short this year.
And it describes this process of hitbodedut as judging ourselves. When we speak out loud before our Almighty God and we ask for help to return to HIS idea of what is good, not our own idea of it, then we have determined that we need improvement. I have judged myself and found myself lacking.
That is the first main point in the video.
The second main point in the video is this - double jeopardy. Similar to a court of law in this world, we cannot be judged twice for the same crime (or failure to hit the mark) and therefore we are not subject to another trial. Double jeopardy is not allowed in this world and it is not allowed in the next world either.
These two main points are very, very interesting and food for my prayers during these last days of Elul.
