Freedom may be defined as the right to ask questions.
This is where it all began, when a family of tribes became a nation of people, when a body of slaves became a soul of freedom. Some people have an exit strategy; we have an exodus strategy. Freedom requires the removal of all ego (no bread, crumbs, crusts, morsels). Then, you can sit down to the Seder, eat the matzo, drink the four cups of wine, and tell the story of your journey. Questions are everything, as are children. We are all children and we all ask questions. There is a Seder plate and there are fifteen steps to the journey. These steps aren’t measured by their number but by their infinity. This is what it means to be a free people.
After leaving Egypt the people had to traverse the desert for 49 days until they were ready to reach the purpose of their Exodus – receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai. This 49-day process is the key to true freedom.Read More
