Baal HaSulam, “The Peace“: It is said in Masechet Avot (Chapter 3, Item 16): “He (Rabbi Akiva) would say, ‘All is in deposit, and a fortress spreads over all of life. The store is open and the shopkeeper sells by deferred payment; the book is open and the hand writes. And all who wish to borrow may come and borrow, and the collectors return regularly, day-by-day, and collect from a person knowingly and unknowingly. And they have what to rely on, and the judgment is true, and all is ready for the feast.’” …From the beginning of Creation, all people have reservations, and the Thought of the Creator necessitates them to come to the feast, knowingly or unknowingly.
“The feast” is the end of the correction of Malchut of the world of Infinity, which has to become filled with the Light of Infinity. This state is predesigned; it exists. We are in it and only lack the instruments, the vessels, to feel it. This is what we are talking about: their correction and tuning.
Thus, “all is ready for the feast.” It is ready, and the Creator is waiting for the “guests,” meaning our corrected desires, which is what we should care about. Everything is a derivative of this feast: the Lights of NRNHY and the vessels of KHB-ZON that descend from Malchut of Infinity by the ladder of spiritual worlds. The initial and the final forms, that is, the first and the third states, beget the second state in which we exist. They define our path in between them, all our corrections.
Hence, we should concern ourselves not with the initial and the final forms, but only with our contribution, our participation in the process. We should try, in the most effective way possible, to enter the sequence of these actions and hasten our development, making it maximally productive, intensive, and focused.
