The Time of Preparation

Q: It is promised that within one life cycle, a person can go through all the stages, beginning with the first desire for spirituality and ending in the completion of correction. In case the cycle is not completed, wouldn’t it better to just “kill the time”? After all, this life was given for the sole purpose of correction!

A: In his Introduction to The Study of the Ten Sefirot, Baal HaSulam says that within three to five years a person can reach the Upper World and begin to climb the ladder. But that is only ideally. In real life it takes twice or even three times as long to succeed.

What I am saying now refers to souls of the 1990’s, but things should take less time in the 21st century because the souls that descend today are a lot closer to spirituality to begin with.
