I am so excited that I just got corrected and informed by a friend, Sephardi Sephari so I am rewritting this post a bit. Although God has no gender, when we pray we usually refer to Him as a He. In certain kabbalah prayers, God is referred to as Ima (which means "mother").
Why is He mostly referred to as male?
I can't answer for all religions, but from various tidbit facts that I know I suspect this: Male is usually connected to provider, giver, kindness. (Sort of like the traditional picture of the man providing for his family). Female is usually connected to receiver, defender, judge. Most times we don't want to appeal to the "judge" part of God, but rather the "provider" side.
Arousal from Below to Arousal from Above.
This is an interesting concept of praying -also known as the 'female waters' in kabbalah and getting a response: i.e. the masculine waters from Above.
Kind of like a girl who either cries (tears), kisses, or arouses other waters of appealing and the man responding. At times, the women is so beautiful (in deeds) that just her very presence 'arouses' the man to give.
Alot of kabbalah, I notice, have a lot of association to sexuality. I think that's what makes it not to proper for those who can't keep their pants up. lol
(Question to all readers: should I not post interesting stuff about Judaism? Does it make you uncomfortable? If so, please let me know and I'll leave it over at my other blog. Thanks.)
