Product Of The Environment

Question: What in life made you the person you are today?

Answer: As Rav Yehuda Ashlag explains in his landmark article “The Freedom”, we are comprised of 4 factors: our genetic inheritance, our upbringing, the education we received and finally the influence of the environment we actually exist in.

From this we can see that after we have finished our education the only remaining factor that still shapes, influences us – and gives us the opportunity, free choice to upgrade, even fundamentally “reprogram” ourselves is the environment.

And since we are all the [product of our environment, we can say that in truth the only real free choice we have in life is choosing the environment that will “make us”.
