Parshat Tazriya – תזריע


Masculine and Feminine Waters

The triangular form or vector pointing upward represents what is called by the kabbalah the “feminine waters”, the movement or aspiration from below to reach a spiritual height, such as in prayer.

Turning the painting upside down


With the triangular form or vector pointing downward transforms it to the “masculine waters”, the vector of bringing spiritual energy
into the “vessels” of the mundane world.

אִשָּׁה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ וְיָלְדָה זָכָר

As hinted in the beginning of the Parsha:

If the conceiving begins with the “feminine waters” this stimulates a greater arousal from above resulting in the birth of a male child “זכר” something “remembered” and steadfast.
