The occasion of Passover is a good time to explore our ideas of liberation. The very language of liberation can collude with or can be coopted by our ongoing unconscious dynamics of self-hate. Our own divisions preexisting in ourselves in which we hated our own vulnerability, dependency, mortality, in a sense all of these internal splits become recast into the language of spirituality. As if now a spiritual practice would be enlisted in the pursuit of the elimination of a hated part of ourselves by a valorized part of ourselves and we would call that enlightenment and liberation. We should ask ourselves what we need freedom from and what exactly we need freedom for.
