By going through such spiritual states like the “New Year,” each time, a person reaches some part of the final corrected state. We cannot reach the Final Correction at once; rather, we attain it in portions, time after time. Thus each year the state of the beginning – the beginning of the year – returns. This continues until the corrections accumulate and the common and final End of Correction occurs.
Like a spinning wheel, we return to seemingly the same corrections again and again until they accumulate and we reach the final corrected state. It happens precisely as in a bicycle when its wheel seems to be spinning around its axis in the same place. Yet in reality, due to this spinning, the bicycle is moving forward because the outside conditions change.
