"And behold, angels of G-d were ascending and descending" (Genesis 28:12).
Why in Yaakov's inspiring vision were the angels ascending from below. Do angels not originate in Heaven?
G-d has plenty of angels in Heavens. Our primary mission in life is to create angels here on Earth and each one of our actions creates a spiritual force below (Pirkei Avot 4:11). Robert Louis Stevenson once said: "Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences." At our banquet let's hope we all meet the type of angels in Yaakov's vision.
