Bereshit 12:3 spreaks about: 'va.a.var.cha m'va.ra.chey.cha u.me.ka.lel.cha a.or' While in Devarim 30:19 it states: 'ha.be.ra.cha v'hak.la.la'.
Are kalal and arar the same thing? As both seem to be the opposite of bracha (blessing).
I once learned that in the case of tov v'rah (good and wrong/bad) rah could be understand as the absence of HaShem, while in the case of what seems to be understand as 'good' His presence/will is felt.
Could one understand blessing (barach) en curse (arar/kalal) the same way? Because in the cases of blessing 'good seems to befall upon those who are blessed' while in the cases of cursings 'bad or evil seems to befall/come upon those who are cursed', With HaShem (if one heeds His voice; Devarim 28) one befalls good, while without HaShem (if one don't heed His voice) one befalls bad? (life and death to put it in a extreem way; are good and bad things that could befall us).
HaShem is presenting to Am Yirael two approaches - the derech hatov and the derech ha'rah. If one chooses the good approach, then he will receive a lot of reward (blessing)... and the same seems to apply to a bad approach, then one will receive some form of punishment in the form of curses will come upon him. So a live with HaShem, with His presence in it, is good and a blessing.
Presence v.s. absence?
