Introduction

Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה‎, lit. "receiving") is a discipline and school of thought discussing the mystical aspect of Judaism. It is a set of esoteric teachings that is meant to explain the relationship between an infinite, eternal and essentially unknowable Creator with the finite and mortal universe of His creation. In solving this paradox, Kabbalah seeks to define the nature of the universe and the human being, the nature and purpose of existence, and various other ontological questions.

It also presents methods to aid understanding of these concepts and to thereby attain spiritual realization. Kabbalah originally developed entirely within the milieu of Jewish thought and constantly uses classical Jewish sources to explain, demonstrate, or prove its esoteric teachings. These teachings are thus held by kabbalists to define the inner meaning of both the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and traditional Rabbinic literature, as well as to explain the significance of Jewish religious observances.

Devils Advocate

Devils Advocate has a purpose. Stimulation, awakening from torpor, awakening to your own Truths, bringing you to formulate, and organize your own thoughts /beliefs, open you to possibilities not thought of before, teaching you that each individual comes in with different perceptions of what Truth is. Realization that some   touch your Heart and some your Jupiter center. Realization that The Work is all yours to do and that any perceived “other” is your lesson and that there is so much to learn. Realization that balance and balance only will get you through.

Most of all, realization that  Devils Advocate is you. You called on S/he. There is something there that needs to be learned. When one man makes it, all do. Devils Advocate really wants you to make it. You can do it when you reconcile S/he,  for the Force for All is in the Dark side. Reconciliation is the Key .

Devils Advocates wild or wily presentations can crack your mind. Good!!! That is when a Force of Blessing  can come in through the Self-Conscious Barrier that was up before that crack!!!

Shechinah - Wisdom, is God's Female side.

On the Tree of life 'She' resides both above and below. for 'Her' you spell 'Spirit' with a capital.

Lichtkind> "so spirit is passive?"

An explanation was offered of "Gender" as a representation of duality/polarity (active/passive, etc.).  Polarity is a principle which is recognized by all Western Mystery traditions, including the structure of "Kabbalah."

The word "spirit" was not used in the explanation.  The above question, then, is attempting to introduce (and argue) an unrelated idea.  Perhaps the questioner is fixated upon a given definition, or perhaps is a little unfocused in the attempt to stimulate thought.


In regards to the origin of the conversation stream:

Being> "Invite Wisdom, . . . She is Spirit!"

... this appears to be an emotive declaration of an indefinite intuitive impression.  It may be generally correct, but lacking more definition (and possibly technical details), it is not something which can be discussed or debated to any benefit.
Might have just as well said, "Quiet the egostic, rationalizing mind activity."  But, then, there's the distinction between bhakti and jnana yogas.

spirit is passive as female but aslso bringet of life and death

if we examine tarot for example
the king of wands is typically seen as the Fire of fire
fire is typically male. Fire is composed or made of air, fire, water, earth. we can see this, the suit of wands has four court cards to reprrsent the four elements. thus male is female, fenale is male
