This is actually true. It is not possible to advance without errors, without falls, without problems. It is through them that a person learns. It is impossible to achieve anything otherwise, as it is said: “One cannot carry out a Mitzvah (commandment) unless one breaks it first.”
A commandment is an action of bestowal. It is impossible to achieve bestowal without first revealing how opposite you are to it. Gradually, we will begin to integrate into this system. We do not just learn the material; we absorb it, and it builds us up. The internal systems: the brain and the heart, feelings and mind, take the form of those thoughts that we absorb from the articles and they build our soul.
It turns out that the broken will to receive begins to connect its atoms and molecules into all sorts of new forms. All its parts are getting connected together, building a system that operates not according to the laws of egoism, but according to the laws of bestowal. This means that we are beginning to enter a new, opposite world, a spiritual space.
