Kabbalah: Free us of freedom borders. In the course of the story we have seen as one country after another, one culture after another, enzarzaban in wars, battles, and all of them in the name of freedom. Nothing more abhors human nature to feel oppressed by a force that escapes its control and to put limits to the freedom of the individual. But what is the origin of this need for freedom? How we got to be free or how to be really sure that what we are? The same concept of freedom entails the need to feel freed from something. It is accurate that there is an us and them a: the good and the bad. And what do we do then? We began to draw lines and to create borders, which probably began as territories: it brings up an imaginary line on the ground and all that is within it is mine or my tribe, while all that remains outside it is the alien.

The years pass and eventually reach the cities, States and Nations. All of them with their borders, imaginary, but well drawn. Also the religions evolved, and also them aficionaron to lift barriers. Barriers grounded on beliefs. If you believe in this or that, if you Corne of such or such a way, then, you’ll be within the confines of our religion. And if you’ll not, run out.

So many religions and all of them were creating their own space where none proved particularly tolerant of others. Within those borders that we have invented, there is one widely accepted by all and which, however, rarely consider imaginary. I am all that lies within the confines of my skin; everything that is outside it is not part of me. This is a widespread idea, and we would be in trouble if we had to find someone on the street who thought otherwise.
