Metaphysical meaning of Gittaim (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Gittaim (mbd)
Gittaim, ,lt'-ta-im (Heb.)--two wine presses; two vats; double fortune. See GATH, of which Gittaim is the dual number.

A place that the Beerothites fled to and remained at; both Beeroth and Gittaim were cities of Benjamin (II Sam. 4:3). Gittaim was one of the places in which the Benjamites who returned from the Babylonian captivity lived (Neh. 11:33).

Meta. Trial doubled by a great influx of thoughts of life and increase (Beerothites) into consciousness, while one is still being governed to a great extent by the limited views of the personal man. Our sense consciousness sees and magnifies the seeming evil and the suffering phase of our experiences in unfoldment instead of understanding and rejoicing in Truth.
