Wanting To Be Independent

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What can we wish for the people of Israel on their Independence Day holiday?

Answer: I wish for the people of Israel to be independent. There is nothing more important to a person than a feeling of independence. Independence means that we have all of the necessities: power, knowledge, and means, everything we need, and we know how to use it and for what purpose. We are confident about the goal and how to attain it, meaning that we are independent in this as well.

All of this feeling, this collection of conditions, is called “independence.” Independence is not just a lack of external pressure and freedom from everything. Something like this cannot be, and the world is advancing to a state where none of us can be independent, all of us depend upon each other and hold each with a vice.

Being independent means that we know what we want to attain and how to attain it, and we have all the means for this. It is possible to wish this for the people of Israel. But to have all of this requires a higher wisdom.
