How to rise above the angels? (Maybe you must)

In Babylon Esther (easter) the genius asked for all Jews associated to Mordecai to fast for her for three days.  On the second day the King was ready to give her everything "on the spot" and very wisely again she asked for a similar day.
Between the two days Jews celebrate Purim and Non-Jews celebrate "Easter".  Well that's how I see it.
Ester and Mordecai "fathered" the nation: "holy, holy, holy" since the three day fast completed the raising of the Jews above all the charnal lusts of money, sex, food, which are handicaps for fulfilling priestly obligations and tasks.
Inspite of the genius of Moses and Ester which Gd duely rewarded; the nation as a whole did get purged of these lusts, but not on their own merit.  Furthermore angels can say that Jews do not really have more rights than they do.
This is why Pirkey Avot says that the highest trait is a good heart.  Angels follow orders. Jews do not, they must make the right choices throughout their lives and not abuse of their "advantage".

A humble person who fulfills the will of Gd will eventually deserve a good heart and will then be "good, good, good" which is to say....way above the angels.

The Petek is "good, good, good" and is the source of "Ebay ha Nachal" which also is a plot of Holy Land mentioned in the song of songs.  Connecting to all three of these will make you good good good.
