Of our lives’ development, the Kabbalists have revealed that, eventually, we will all get to the Gemar HaTikun. We will all come to the Final Correction. The question is – how long it will take? Will we be expanding the time or contracting the time? It is the choice that we make every single moment. And it’s also true in the positive way. When we choose to push ourselves in uncomfortable ways to do an action of sharing, we contract time.
So, this is an important understanding: when we fall, when we do actions of Desire to Receive for the Self Alone, when we do actions of ego, we eat up time that was given to us to make our corrections.
This [would be] part of the work of our generation, the generation of the Gemar HaTikun, to retract time, to remove the element of time. We can view it as two doors that we can enter. And next time you have the opportunity to do an action of Desire to Receive for the Self Alone, to do an act of ego, to do an action that harms your soul or somebody else, stop for a second and realize it’s not just that if you do this action you are going to have some sort of negativity come into your life… No, you are now going through a door that will take up a certain amount of your lifetime that was actually needed to make your correction.
