Lechem Oni

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.

Henry David Thoreau

What is true freedom? When you don't NEED anything more that the basics. That is why we eat matza [lechem oni - the bread of poverty] to celebrate our freedom. All we need to be satisfied is the most basic of foods - flour and water. Then everything else we have will be viewed as a tremendous bracha. If we continue to receive, we will be eternally grateful but if we don't that will be OK, too.
