Positive Mitzvah 72: The Guilt-offering adjustable to financial status
Leviticus 5:1 "And if a person sins... he shall bring his guilt offering... but if he cannot afford..."

A person who is impure (see Positive Mitzvah 74) is forbidden to enter the Beit HaMikdash or eat from sacrifices. Breaking an oath or taking a false oath are also forbidden. If a person commits any of these sins, he is commanded to bring a guilt offering.

The Torah considers his financial status. A person who cannot afford an expensive offering is allowed to bring one which costs less.

We are imprisoned because we have exiled our G-d. As long as we search for G-d by abandoning the world He has made, we can never truly find Him. As long as we believe there is a place to be escaped, there is no true liberation. The ultimate liberation will be when we open our eyes to see that everything is here now.
