Question: If the time required for the attainment of the spiritual world is presently being hastened, then how is justice achieved if everybody is doing the same amount of work regarding his own soul?
Answer: This is precisely why everybody awakens to spirituality in their own time, not all at once. Each soul awakens when it is necessary for that particular soul since all of us have previously undergone transformations and have acquired the “past merits” described as “merit of the forefathers.”
The forefathers are our past incarnations that we have already completed and have given us an accumulation of “merits,” an inclination for spirituality that we are able to cultivate further. But it has no relationship to my grandfather leaving me his spiritual wealth. Inheritance can be passed on only in the corporeal world, but spiritual assets do not have a corporeal lineage. “The merit of the forefathers” are my own achievements that I made in the previous incarnations (Gilgulim), which I can now use to continue the evolution of my soul.
We are unable to make common conclusions about the spiritual process that is occurring right now because we do not view the incarnations of all the soul as one collective incarnation, but when it all becomes revealed to you, then you will see that everything is absolutely just. As for now, it is necessary to see the work and the spiritual goal that lie ahead of us with the desired intention in the correct place. Let’s not waste our breath on philosophy.
