Kabbalists explain that there is no such thing as “time” or “space” in the spiritual reality. So where does our sensation of time come from? “Spiritual time” is a series of spiritual states. Kabbalist Rabbi Yehuda Ashlag explains that “spiritual time is a number of changes of form, resulting from one another: before and after, cause and consequence.”

More simply, we experience a series of states regardless of time, and we can decide whether we will experience them quickly and joyfully or slowly and painfully. In this way, we can control time, as it is written, “Israel rushes the times.”
