  1. is for Tariq
    A path to walk upon

    cf. Tariq and derex, a path to follow
    eretz, artz, earth

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22the+path+%28derech+eretz%29+to+the+Tree+of+Life%22

    From the commentary on the portion of Noach:
    The Midrash comments on the phrase, “the path (derech eretz) to the Tree of Life,” that derech eretz is middos, proper character traits. Middos are the paths that lead to the Tree of Life, the Torah. Hence, “Derech eretz precedes Torah.” First one refines his middos, and only then can the Torah dwell within him. The Torah cannot reside in one who does not possess good middos “where there is no derech eretz there is no Torah” (see Rabbeinu Yonah to Pirkei Avos 3:22). Even though only Torah can bring one’s middos to ultimate perfection, where there is no foundation of proper middos, the acquisition of Torah is impossible.
