Pesach: The Sale Of Leavened Bread

laitman_527_01Question: What does the sale of leavened bread before Passover mean? Today, it is possible to complete a form on the Internet and sell one’s leaven in two seconds.

Answer: The sale of leavened bread means that I sell it only for a time and bring it back. I do it just to exit my ego, my “evil inclination,” which I use for the detriment of others.

Then, I will use it for the good of others. Thus, this is selling it only for some time, for seven days, to break away from the old paradigm, to get rid of my bad attitude to the world, but only my attitude, and when I get rid of it, I use all of my desires for a good attitude to the world. Therefore, I return this leaven after seven days.

First of all, we need to get rid of the old, from previous relationships. Let’s together make a decision to become “good kids.” We are in the world that is threatening our existence, like in the story of the exodus from Egypt, but we can rise above our ego and reach the genuine land of Israel, a completely good state.

Question: Are you an optimist?

Answer: Yes, this undoubtedly is going to happen. The only question is how much we must pay for it. We can achieve this in a fast and beautiful way, or in a long way, full of suffering. However, in any case, we will come to it.
