Q: How can I accelerate my spiritual progress and thus spare myself agony?
A: You can do this in the following ways:
Read the books of Baal HaSulam, Rabash and my own.
Join a group that aims to discover the objective of creation. Be active and do things for the members of the group and the spiritual leader.
Begin to write everything you know about spirituality. That way, you can correct your current spiritual degree more quickly and create a need to attain the next degree.
The most effective means of all is to take an active part in circulating the wisdom of the Kabbalah.
