Metaphysical meaning of Kelita (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Kelita (mbd)
Kelita, kel'-i-ta (Heb.)--take into oneself- selfishness; shrink; contract; shrunken; dwarfed; insignificant; littleness; poverty; condensing; hardening.

Another name for Kelaiah, a Levite who had taken a foreign wife (Ezra 10:23). He was one of those who helped the people to understand the law (Neh. 8:7), and he also joined Nehemiah in sealing the covenant (Neh. 10:10).

Meta. Kelita shows the result of using the power of the I AM, the lightness and swiftness of Jehovah, which Kelaiah signifies, to bring about the fulfillment of selfish, sense desires (taking a foreign wife). This result is a lessening of one's good in mind, body, and affairs. Kelita also shows how wonderfully the divine intelligence and power works, through the thoughts that give it place, to enlighten our thought people and to unify them with Spirit. (Kelita helped the people to understand the law, and he joined Nehemiah in sealing the covenant.) Even when we give the light of Spirit only a small place in our consciousness, even when we restrict it by our poor, little, personal ideas (poverty, dwarfed, shrunken), the result for good is marvelous. What will it be, then, when we become perfect, open channels for expression of the one Mind.
