Esau And Jacob Are Twins

Part 5 of 5

Intellectual analysis of life and struggle is a two-edged sword that can lead one to good conclusions or evil ones, or both. This
is simply the dual nature of intellect when it is detached from spiritual awareness that's received from and is connected
to a higher source of knowing.

Humanity was originally designed to think intuitively and intellectually simultaneously. When we lost contact with our intuitive edge, we also lost our ability to properly perceive the depths of the realities that face us. We pass through life in a relative state of blindness, all because we do not have the spiritual eyes and the sensitivity to avoid danger.

The hands of Esau, represent human endeavors that follow what we call the natural course. These are never enough to guide us in the paths of righteousness. Therefore, Esau represents all those who approach life without hearing the voice of Jacob.

Yet, curious human beings that we are, we had to find out the truth. This cost us dearly and we are still paying the price. Every day we eat of the forbidden fruit of intellectualism and fall under the dominion of Esau/Satan. Every day we use the hands of Esau instead of the voice of Jacob. Every day we fail to recognize that Esau's descendants are not his bloodline, but rather those who walk in his footsteps.

The voice of Jacob is what defines the righteous. Therefore, righteousness is not defined exclusively by one's actions; for even evil people can perform proper or righteous actions. Righteousness is actually a state of mind that leads to a state of being.

Distinguishing between Esau and Jacob has always been difficult. Since their birth, they have been twins and ever since then many have confused the two. Yet, never has there
been such dire consequences from such an apparently minor mistake. It is imperative for us to learn to speak with the voice of
Jacob. Learn to distinguish between good and evil, between Jacob and Esau, between the Voice that ascends and the hand that destroys.

Esau And Jacob Are Twins

Part 4 of 5

Although God created evil and bad things, He allows them to exist and warns us to stay away from them; and still, like Jacob and
Esau, sometimes the evil and bad things are not so clearly discerned. We often have a hard time recognizing the evil from the good. We often mistake Esau for Jacob. When this happens and we embrace Esau instead of Jacob, thinking all along that we are embracing Jacob, we are in for one very rude awakening. We often forget to pay attention to Esau's metaphorical hairiness, which is a metaphor for harshness and severity.

Isaac, blind as he was, taught for posterity how to recognize the difference between Esau and Jacob while our eyes are blind to see. When Jacob came to him in Esau's garments, Isaac said, "The hands are the hands of Esau while the voice is the voice of Jacob." From this, our Sages understood the prophetic tone in Isaac's words. The way of hands is the way of Esau and the way of voice is the way of Jacob. Although Jacob can turn to the ways of Esau's hands, his true power is in his own voice.

Torah teaches that the Adamic race became entangled and trapped in this physical dimension through what is called the eating of the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, Good and Evil. By the "eating" of this forbidden fruit humanity lost its intuitive edge and moral compass and instead had to rely
completely upon our rational intellectual faculties to guide our way through life in this world. Intellectual faculty alone, without morals cannot guide us safely through all of life's intricacies. Knowledge by itself, unguided by the heart can be both good and evil. Intellect alone, without any inner sense of intuitive awareness and moral guidance can lead one to embrace what appears to be entirely logical conclusions which at the same time are evil and destructive - embracing Satan while believing that one is embracing the Angel of Light.

Esau & Jacob
part 2
Long ago, the great Sages commented in the Zohar that if we only understood the Torah at its surface level, it would be easy to write an even better one. Yet being that there are sublime secrets hanging on every word and letter, the surface superficiality must be penetrated in order to understand Torah's true meaning and message. Not only is this true with regards to the written word of Torah, but this same profundity also pertains to the stories told long ago by the Sages. Although they were not prophets they were the children of the prophets and thus walked in their path and made full use of their techniques.
Without this fundamental understanding the works of the Sages will never be properly understood.
The story is told that when Jacob died and was being taken to Machpelah cave to be buried alongside his father and mother, Esau arrived with an army to contest and prevent the burial. Esau claimed the cave as his own and a great argument broke out between the sons of Esau and the sons of Jacob. Husham the son of Dan was allegedly deaf and did not understand what was happening. His father motioned in sign language to him what was happening and Husham, simple man that he was, took matters in his own hands, drew out a sword and decapitated Esau. Needless to say, this led to an all out war between the sons of Esau and the sons of Jacob.
In the end the sons of Jacob won the day but they also allowed a compromise and permitted the severed head of Esau to be buried in the lap of his father Isaac inside the Machpelah Cave. Thus Jacob was laid to rest in his place and Esau was split, with his head being alongside his father and brother and his body removed to be buried elsewhere.
Now, this is a nice story; whether or not it is historical fact cannot be ascertained. However to this day in the Machpelah Cave building, one can find alongside the caves of all the Patriarchs and Matriarchs the Cave of the Head of Esau. Correct or not, this legend dates back to ancient times, so let us delve beneath the surface of metaphor to understand the sublime truths being taught here.

Esau And Jacob

Part 3 of 5

Let us remember that it was God who ordained that Rebekah be impregnated with the twin souls of Esau and Jacob. The Creator himself called down both souls from Heaven and placed them together to be born as twins.

We might very well ask why would God send the soul of the archetypal evil Esau to be born as a brother to the archetypal righteous Jacob? What is He telling us by this mating? As
different as Esau and Jacob grew to become, in the end they were still brothers, bound by common parents and common blood. What is this telling us about the relationship of good and evil?
This apparently bizarre relationship between good and evil did not begin with Esau and Jacob, nor did it end here. In Kabbalistic writings, we read something even more profound. "Do not be surprised that you find written in the Zohar regarding the Tree of Knowledge that the Good therein is Metatron, and the Evil therein is Samael".
Just as Esau and Jacob were brothers below so is the Angel of God uniquely related with the evil angel commonly known as the Satan. This follows the ancient Torah adage, "as it is below so it is above." Yet, just what this is telling us is a profound revelation about the nature of the universe and how the Creator operates within it and with us.
Good and evil are both agents of God and serve Heaven to accomplish the Divine purpose. Torah however commands us to
choose good and to avoid evil. This is for our own benefit. Just because God creates a thing, allows its existence and even in a way nurtures its existence does not necessarily mean that such a thing is a benefit for us. God created all types of poisonous plants and allows them to flourish, yet nowhere does He suggest that we ingest their poison. Why then does He allow them to exist, this is a question that only God can answer, an answer unknown to us.

Esau And Jacob Are Twins
Part 1 of 5
The relationship between Esau and Jacob is an archetypal expression of the relationship between good and evil. While many believe the false assumption that good and evil are diametrically opposed and glaringly visible as opposites, the message of Torah is clear, Esau and Jacob are twins.
Good and evil can appear identical and like with people, unless one delves beneath appearances it is impossible to discern the good from evil. Appearances are almost always confusing and many times they are the opposite of what they truly represent.
Esau and Jacob were twin, however different they still shared a lot in common. The only real difference that Torah distinguishes
between their appearances is the nature of their skin. Esau was hairy and Jacob was smooth. Such images also have become
archetypes in their own right. Hairiness has become a symbol of man associated with the physical side of his humanity; whereas
smoothness has come to symbolize the more intellectual properties. Indeed, Torah embraces these same archetypes in the unfolding saga of Esau and Jacob, not only in their lifetime but also in the continuing centuries that outline the history of their descendants.
Thus even as Esau and Jacob were twin brothers, the Torah message implies that the physical side and the intellectual spiritual side of humanity are equally twin brothers. This message seems to be foundational to Torah, although the Torah's understanding of it, needs to be understood beneath the
apparent surface of the thing.
