The world has never been under so much lachatz (pressure). Lachatz is like the slavery of Mitzrayim (Egypt). Freedom is when we feel nothing extraneous forcing us to act differently than we want to. Serving our bad traits is also called slavery. The freedom festival of Pesach is in the first month, since something 'first' is not “enslaved” to anything preceding it. The seamless and white garment of the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kippur expresses the absence of any barrier to closeness to Hashem.
