Answer: We don’t accelerate the process. At best, we approach it.
Through our inner efforts, we have an impact on new relationships that reveal positive states in the nation of Israel and in the world. We sweeten and soften many states, but it isn’t hastening yet (the state of “I shall hasten it”).
The state of “I shall hasten it” is when the world begins to move by a new force that pulls it forward by going through us. This isn’t happening yet.
On the whole, we are a major part of the general system, the active part that influences what is happening and that brings goodness, but it isn’t enough to hasten the process.
I do hope that we will be able to become that missing part, the link between the upper and the lower, and that we will truly be Light unto the nations, the link to the world of Light, and even if people will not feel this Light, it will not matter. Its force will draw them to the good and they will begin to make the right decisions, will start to come closer to us in thought, and will be able to hear our message, to understand, internalize, and accept it. “Even if we don’t fully understand it, we already see and feel that it is true.”
Then, we will attain the state of “I shall hasten it” and not just “I shall hasten it” but even what is called “The Messiah’s Shofar,” a level on which the message of unity spreads throughout the world.
The most important means to achieve this is integral education since the more we connect with the world, the stronger is our deficiency to turn upward for help.
