Baal HaSulam writes in “The Last Generation”: “People don’t understand how to be careful and to look at everything to see if it is fully cooked. And even though the thing is useful and true according to plan, there is more deepening that can be done in the matter, if it is fully cooked, if the receivers have matured to a sufficient degree already, so that they can digest it in the bowels, and when they lack the time for development, indeed the truth and the benefit transforms into false and damaging.
This is clearly seen from experience, how much we don’t agree with the stages of our advancement. We are inside the soup: We are being cooked and as we are being cooked, we don’t agree with this process. Suddenly all kinds of emotions disappear from us, and this is how we go on for a few months. After some time we wake up again and again we fall.
The problem is that we live within our emotions and are not ready to see advancement as long as only half of the matter is done. And here the main thing is to surrender ourselves and continue patiently. We need to give ourselves time to be cooked completely, for we are in a slow and gradual developmental process.
