Everything Is Preordained
By the very thought to create the souls, His thought completed everything for He does not need an act, as do we. Instantaneously, all the souls and worlds that were destined to be created, emerged filled with all the delight and pleasure and the gentleness He had planned for them in the final perfection that the souls were intended to receive at the end of correction, after the will to receive in the souls has been fully corrected and was turned into pure bestowal, in complete equivalence of form with the Emanator.
This is so because in His Eternalness, past, present, and future are as one. Hence, there was never an issue of a corrupted will to receive separated from the Creator. On the contrary, that equivalence of form, destined to be revealed at the end of correction, appeared instantly in the eternity of the Creator.
