Patience On The Spiritual Path

565.02Question: Is it important for a person walking on the spiritual path to be able to wait?

Answer: Yes and no. Waiting, patience, is, of course, a useful property. But at the same time, I must set clear goals for myself and try to achieve them, and not hang around between heaven and earth for an unknown period of time.

Question: What does it mean to be patient, in the right way?

Answer: If a teacher tells me or I read in Kabbalistic books that we should go this way and constantly try to rise above ourselves in this way, then I must do it, even if I fail. Because failures are also part of the image of searching and finding.

Question: Sometimes it happens that in the process of patient work, a person develops a feeling of anticipation. How important is this feeling: “I endure, but I look forward to achieving the goal”?

Answer: This is given to a person from above on purpose in certain cases. I would not think that it is so important.

There are many different properties and sensations when a person receives some signs. But I do not think that it is necessary to be guided by them and to pay attention to them. Just look at it as incidental definitions.
