164. There Is a Difference between Corporeality and Spirituality

I heard on Av 3, August 8, 1948

There is a difference between corporeality and spirituality: in corporeality, the force precedes the act, as it is written, “before they call, I will answer,” arranged according to the end of correction, where nothing is done before they have the strength to do it. In spirituality, however, where it is still not arranged according to the end of correction, but by the order of scrutinies, the work must begin before the attainment of the strength, as it is written, “that fulfill His word, hearkening unto the voice of His word.”
