Spiritual Time, Months of Gestation
What is "time" and what is "months of gestation" in spirituality?
Time in spirituality is not about time according to a clock or according to some external factor that changes. It is about how much I change, which is called that I went through this time and that time.
Thus when we learn about the spiritual "months of gestation," we, in total, learn about the changes that take place in the desire to receive. And according to the number of these changes we count Tet (ninth letter in the Hebrew alphabet), Zayin (seventh letter in the alphabet), or Yod Bet (numeric value of twelve) renewals that are called "months."
"Gestation" is from the word, "go through," which passes from state to state. Thus the concept of "months of gestation," means a number of changes that I need to go through in order to develop within the Upper until the state where I pass over to external developments.
