It is said in the Zohar that the Final Redemption will come when we have reached a critical mass. But reaching this critical mass, however, does not depend on a specific number of people; rather, it depends on whether each person on the spiritual path is performing the specific spiritual work that he or she was put on this Earth to do.
Today, take a few moments to reflect on your own spiritual progress. Are you working each day to be better than you were yesterday? Are you trying to expand your level of caring? Are you opening your heart to loving and to being loved by others?
Life is busy and full of distractions and complications. It is important that we make sure to check that our consciousness is in the right place.
