Tikkun 21 – 143
אמר רבי יוחנן משום רשב”י: אלמלי ישראל משמרים שתי שבתות כהלכתן מיד נגאלים
The sages of the Talmud, quoted Rabbi Shimon quoting the earlier sages saying that if the Israelites observe one Shabbat perfectly then they will be redeemed immediately. (on another hand written version of the Zohar it is said two Shabbats.)
Explanation: Israelites are the channel of the light to the world. If they won’t corrupt the flow of the light of Binah that comes on Shabbat the world will be filled with the light that will break all negativity. The result is constant flow of light to the world.
This is a true statement but also good in theory. Like Adam didn’t have a chance to win the Snake, so we have to go through the whole process and earn the light now and in the Final Redemption. We are in the state of ‘lost in darkness’ (Genesis 3:9) אַיֶּכָּה.
When the time comes, YHVH will come down to remove the negativity and allow the flow of the light to continue uninterrupted.
We can reach a personal Redemption/Mashiach when we focus on the light that will gradually remove the negativity from our lives as we complete our Tikkun. When we achieve that we come closer to enjoy worry free life as we understand that we are with the light and everything is part of him/the system. The next level is a point where there is no fear of death, not because you are desperate to leave the chaos in your life, but because you feel closer to the light and death is just a jump over the wall to be closer to the light and to see the king.
