Metaphysical meaning of Chesil (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Chesil (mbd)
Chesil, che'-sll (Heb.)--loin; fleshy; fat; fleshly; carnal; fool; foolish; impious; ungodly.

A city of Judah, "toward the border of Edom in the South" (Josh. 15:30).

Meta. The unwise, ungodly thoughts and activities that hold sway in man when he lives purely in the sense mind. (Edom--red--refers to the outer or physical, sensate organism of man.) The whole man is to be redeemed, however, and this ungodly state of consciousness (Chesil), having been allotted to Judah, will be transformed into spiritual expression by means of prayer and praise, the Judah consciousness. Then it will become truly fat, rich with the abundance of spiritual thought.
