Answer: We were created of the will to enjoy and all the actions of correcting this desire are done by the Light. The Light corrects the Kelim or desires, orders them, and gives them the sensation of the abyss between the desires and the Lights, the gap between the levels, the sensation of lack of fulfillment. The Light awakens and shakes up the Kli or desire.
It turns out that I must only cause the Light to come forth and work on me. This is my only action and means to accelerate my development.
One way or another the Lights works, influencing Reshimot (informational data) more and more. Then the Reshimot come out of concealment and are realized at a specific rate called “Beito” (in due time).
When I make special actions in the group, the study, my inner work, and my search, I thereby awaken the Lights, causing them to influence me with greater force and speed. But I don’t do anything more than that.
In any case everything comes from the Light. I can only speed up its influence on the Reshimot that are inside me. Then my development is called Ahishena (accelerating time). And doing this is our entire work.
However, this can only happen on the condition that instead of advancing by the lengthy and difficult path where the Light influences me by bringing me all kinds of suffering that I have to flee, gradually realizing the purpose of the suffering, instead of that, I can awaken the Light so it will influence me more strongly, provided that I agree with all the unpleasant and horrible things it brings me.
Let the Light bring me all of that; all I want is to ascend above it by the force of the environment. From the environment I receive the strength to be above the suffering. Then, if I prepare in this way, the Upper Light can influence me and cause me to advance and develop.
