Metaphysical meaning of Gihon (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Gihon (mbd)
Gihon, gl'-hon (Heb.)--determining impulse; formative movement; a bursting forth; whirlpool; rapid stream.

a A river of Eden (Gen. 2:13). b The name of a fountain, or a pool with springs, just outside the city of Jerusalem. David had Solomon taken there to be anointed king over Israel by Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet (I Kings 1:33, 45; II Chron. 32:30).

Meta. Gihon means formative movement. It represents the deific breath of God inspiring man and purifying his blood in the lungs. It flows through the darkened consciousness (Cush).

The Gihon that was a fountain, or pool, with springs, just outside Jerusalem, indicates a bursting forth of joyous life and Truth. Substance and discrimination are also suggested by the "digestive system." Thus peace (Solomon) becomes the ruling factor of the heart and mind when abundant life, substance, and wisdom (discrimination) are realized.
