It is written: “I labored and found.” If I don’t invest my efforts, I do not receive the force of correction from Above. I myself cannot create this correcting force; I cannot correct myself, but I need to sweat to still try to do it. And then, according to my effort, this force comes from within—and corrects me.
Sometimes we feel that we don’t understand or know anything, and suddenly an insight comes. This is what I have to look forward to. It is written about it: “It is not for you to complete this work (it is not you who completes it), but you are not free to reject it.” You have to exert yourself because the effort you put in invites and draws the force of correction.
