I am very attached to my Jewish identity. It is very important to me. As I have this attachment, i am letting go of nationalism, or, more simply put for me, an attachment to a nation. The latter is easier than the former. I have heard it said that giving up national identity goes hand in hand with giving up religious identity; that you cannot do away with one and not the other.
I muse over the lyrics of a song most of us have heard before:
Imagine there's no countries/It isn't hard to do/Nothing to kill or die for/And no religion too.
I struggle with this. I'm not ready to let go of it. Does anyone out there struggle with this issue?
