“She shall be unclean seven days,” is the properties that cannot be turned into bestowal or love during the childbirth process are called “seven days” or “seven Sefirot.” For this period of time, one has to detach from one’s work and one’s prior conditions because there is a part inside the desire that is shaped to bestow and another part that turns into waste.
But it is not just waste; rather, they are the properties that cannot be used for the sake of bestowal. However, they can be corrected at the next level.
It is similar to the digestion of kosher animals when they swallow and regurgitate over and over again. This is an example of how one’s nature can be used for spiritual purposes.
Question: During the childbirth process on this material plane, a woman first releases water, then a baby is born, and afterward the placenta is separated and then blood comes out. Are all of them just “waste” that wasn’t utilized by the child?
Answer: This is a special type of connection between the upper and lower organisms, between the higher and lower levels.
In this world, the placenta is removed from the mother’s body and then they either throw it away or use it for medical purposes. Conversely, in spirituality these things worked to turn into lower level systems. All intermediary systems that worked between the mother’s body and the child, as well as everything that ever formed or worked for the child’s sake, leaves the mother’s body and descends to lower systems since the child doesn’t need them anymore. At this point, the baby obtains additional desires and receives a spiritual gene; thus, the child elevates.
Nothing is ever wasted in spirituality. It is a clean ecology! It just cannot be any other way. If the Creator made a desire that is absolutely equal to the Light, but qualitatively is completely opposite to It; they need each other to fully implement. Therefore, nothing ever vanishes in spirituality; everything is fully recyclable.
In materiality, the entire bodily waste that is produced by our organism can be either recycled or buried. Really nothing needs to be buried. Kabbalah explains what waste is. Particularly, Baal HaSulam wrote several articles that are yet unpublished and that describe the nature of the waste that is produced by our bodies and determines the way they should be re-used in the life circle. The most interesting thing is that there are numerous kinds of “waste”, such as sweat, hair, saliva, tears, etc. They form a special “sphere” around our bodies.
