Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What is freedom?“
Freedom is a state where we rise above our restrictive limits and give everything we can for society’s benefit. Doing so gives us the opportunity to feel absolutely free from every restraint.
How does it work that we become free when we give everything possible for society’s benefit? It is because we then feel no limits from our egoistic nature—the desire to enjoy at the expense of others and nature—because we use it with an intention to bestow, i.e. a desire to benefit others and nature.
Acquiring an intention to bestow upon our egoistic nature, which can be achieved through exercising giving and positive connection in society, is our life’s purpose. When we acquire the new intention to bestow upon our inborn desire to receive, we gain access to a state of eternity and perfection: unlimited fulfillment, complete perception and total connection with others and nature.
