“Identifying damaging patterns and personal bias is an essential step on a journey to freedom from our personal bondage.

 

In one way or another, we’re all enslaved [by our inward psyche or our outside circumstances].

 

Learning how to be free is what is called in the Torah ‘leaving Egypt’.

 

The Hebrew word for Egypt is Mitzrayim, which literally means ‘narrow’ and which represents all forms of enslavement…

 

To be free, you must leave your personal Mitzrayim. But freedom is not enough. You can be free for a while and then be enslaved again.

 

…the Divine Torah blueprint…tells you how to access your soul, how to achieve and maintain freedom in every part of your life…”
