Question: Do I understand correctly that in our world the most free are children before we start raising them? They do not care about how to dress or how to eat. Do I understand correctly that we need to take an example from them and study the highest of sciences, Kabbalah, and love one another, dance, sing, and rejoice like children?
Answer: Children are absolutely dependent on their desires and intentions. And the freedom they feel is imaginary. In fact, they do not know that they are not free and that they blindly obey their desires and instincts.
As soon as you begin to limit them or say that they need to restrict themselves, immediately they strongly resist and cry. Children are not an example.
