Stay Out Of The Pnimiyus Of Seir

Today is Rav Hutner's Yahrtzeit. 

Why does the Torah say ארצה שעיר - To the land of Seir, placing the ה meaning "to" at the end of the word ארץ and not at the end of the word Seir as it does later in the parsha when Yaakov tells Esav that they will meet in Seir - עד אבוא אל אדוני שעירה. 

Here is Rav Hutner's answer:

We can learn great mussar from this. We can be in a place without entering into into its pnimiyus. BIG LESSON!
