A question I received: In our world, an embryo has to grow day by day at the right speed in order to be born on time. If it comes out earlier or later than it is supposed to, it’s harmful for it. How can we know that our point in the heart is growing at the correct speed and will arrive at its spiritual birth on time?
My Answer: The right speed means to constantly aim at one goal. The goal is to grow and mature in order to be born in spirituality and to continue evolving until you become completely equivalent to the Creator like Aba ve Ima, Hochma and Bina.
You are evolving at the correct speed if you keep at this singular objective, align all your intentions and desires solely with it, and use them as the means to draw closer to it. However, if you withdraw from the goal, you bring your evolution to a standstill. In spirituality, time is the quantity of actions you have taken; it is not a mechanical meter.
