    What do we do with all this information and awareness

    There are many seemingl contradictions,  and back and forths on what I'm hearing. Difficult to totally grasp all the meanings. How to get more straight on what you're saying? I'm feeling this is so huge and significant for a truly successful life for everyone, but having a hard time in my own head  understanding,  let alone to explain to  someone else.

    Question for Rabbi YY

    Land was created for man? If man was created like a mermaid (merman?) Then we could have lived under water. When land was created man had not yet been created and it was then unclear whether we would live on land or in water. Gashmius has a higher source than ruchnious? Next you'll tell me than Esav had a higher source than Yakov!

      Not sure exactly about whether Esav had a higher source than Yaakov, but pretty sure I've heard shiurs from Rabbi YY that Esav did have something in him that could have made him greater than yaakov

        Yes, Chassidus teaches that, in fact, Esav's  neshamah does come from a much, much higher source than that of Yaakov. I'll try to find the source for you.

    mondays

    I've often heard it be said, and sometimes feel it myself that monday is the worst day of the week for many people. lots of reasons are given, but now I'm wondering if it's because of the dichotomy that Gd created on monday

    Question for Rabbi YY

    Why blame gevurah for creating machlokis? It's only because it came second. Anything that would have come second would be the trigger for an opposition to whatever came first. If gevurah was first and chesed second would chesed be charged with creating machlokis?
