Why do we ask G-d on Yom Kippur to forgive us “for the sin we committed with the evil inclination”? Aren’t all sins committed with the evil inclination?
Chasidus explains that this means the specific sin of not properly channeling the energy of the evil inclination and using it as a force for good. Many people, particularly our youth, who often seem to be rebelling are in truth spiritually seeking. Their energy only needs to be directed.
