Hebrew translation:

וְכַמָּה גִלְגּוּלִים יָבֹאוּ לָאָדָם עַל הַחֲטָאִים הַלָּלוּ, וְאִם לֹא חוֹזֵר הָאָדָם בִּתְשׁוּבָה בַּגִּלְגּוּלִים הַלָּלוּ, אוֹתוֹ הַגּוּף יוֹרֵד לַאֲבַדּוֹן, הַגִּלְגּוּל הָרִאשׁוֹן נִצְבָּע בְּצֶבַע לָבָן, וְרוֹכֶבֶת הַנֶּפֶשׁ עַל סוּס לָבָן שֶׁהִיא הַגּוּף, וְאִם חוֹזֵר בִּתְשׁוּבָה, נֶאֱמַר בּוֹ אִם יִהְיוּ חֲטָאֵיכֶם כַּשָּׁנִים כַּשֶּׁלֶג יַלְבִּינוּ, וְאִם לֹא, יָבֹא בְגִלְגּוּל שֵׁנִי, וְרוֹכֵב עַל סוּס אָדֹם, וְאִם חוֹזֵר בִּתְשׁוּבָה נֶאֱמַר עַל חֶטְאוֹ אִם יַאְדִּימוּ כַתּוֹלָע כַּצֶּמֶר יִהְיוּ, וְאִם לֹא, חוֹזֵר וּמִתְגַּלְגֵּל בְּגִלְגּוּל שְׁלִישִׁי, וְרוֹכֵב עַל סוּס יָרֹק, וְזֶה הַגּוּף.

וְהֵם מַזַּל אַרְיֵה, מַזַּל שׁוֹר, מַזַּל נֶשֶׁר, שֶׁעֲלֵיהֶם נֶאֱמַר הֶן כָּל אֵלֶּה יִפְעַל אֵ”ל פַּעֲמַיִם שָׁלֹשׁ עִם גָּבֶר, וְאִם שְׁלָשׁ אֵלֶּה לֹא יַעֲשֶׂה לָּהּ, לַנֶּפֶשׁ, בִּשְׁלֹשָׁה גִלְגּוּלִים, שֶׁעוֹשֶׂה לָהּ שְׁאֵר כְּסוּת וְעוֹנָה, וְיָצְאָה חִנָּם אֵין כָּסֶף, וְעַל שְׁלֹשָׁה פִּשְׁעֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְעַל אַרְבָּעָה לֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנּוּ, וְעַל אַרְבָּעָה, שֶׁהוּא מַזַּל אָדָם, לֹא אֲשִׁיבֶנּוּ, שֶׁלֹּא יְקַלְקְלוּ אוֹתוֹ.


Tikkun 32 – 3

Reincarnations give the soul opportunities to correct itself through actions while it’s in the corporeal body.

If a person misses on his correction he loses his body and the soul is dressed with a different garment, meaning different tikkun process for the next life time. Uncorrected body will not resurrect in the Final redemption.

Exodus 21:11
“וְאִם-שְׁלָשׁ-אֵלֶּה–לֹא יַעֲשֶׂה, לָהּ: וְיָצְאָה חִנָּם, אֵין כָּסֶף ”
“And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out for nothing, without money”

The soul must go through the aspects of the three column system of the Tree of Life to achieve completion and purity. It adds to the quality of the soul’s garments.

Job 33:29,30
הֶן-כָּל-אֵלֶּה, יִפְעַל-אֵל– פַּעֲמַיִם שָׁלוֹשׁ עִם-גָּבֶר
“לְהָשִׁיב נַפְשׁוֹ, מִנִּי-שָׁחַת– לֵאוֹר, בְּאוֹר הַחַיִּים ”
“Lo, all these things in God’s work, twice, thrice, with a man”
“To bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be enlightened with the light of the Life”

Job that went through a harsh Tikkun process understood the process and accepted it. The only fear in life should be not recognizing and not working on our tikkun process because this process will determine our future life.

The Tikkun process is the work in the ‘weekdays’ (current lifetime). When we work harder we get better ‘paycheck’ (garments of the soul) on Friday and greater enjoyment on Shabbat (Final Redemption). The harder Tikkun we have, the greater is the expression of the love of the Creator for us. When we accept the work, we actually invite more process on us. It’s not easy but it’s like working over time and getting double rewards. The harder we work on our Tikkun in this lifetime, the better life we’ll have next time. The Tikkun will get easier until the Final redemption.

Like Job said, the whole process is to bring the soul back to the Tree of Life. If your life is considered to be easy, you should look for the correction. It’s either you finished with your Tikkun or you are avoiding it.
