Question: You say that we live in a system of absolute connection with one another, so does everyone determine the fate of the other?
Answer: It is not a system that we created ourselves. It is a system of nature that holds us together.
Question: And in the system we live in, do we have the freedom to determine the fate of each other because of our interconnection?
Answer: We do not choose our nature, we exist in it. There is nothing we can do about it. We have to take it as a given.
Today we are approaching a state that shows us that we are absolutely not free because we grew out of those frameworks, those laws, those social contracts that we existed before when it seemed to us that we were free.
Today we demand a different kind of freedom: spiritual freedom. Therefore, humanity is now beginning a new stage of its development—above the ego. We begin to feel that egoism is our slave master.
Freedom from the point of view of Kabbalah is for us to realize that we do not have freedom and that we want to acquire some new qualities, that is, to attain freedom in the absolute sense of the word: freedom over our nature.
