Metaphysical meaning of Zelek (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Zelek (mbd)
Zelek, ze'–lek (Heb.)--cleaving; splitting; rending; rent; fissure; chasm.

An Ammonite, one of David's guard of mighty men (II Sam. 23 :37).

Meta. A breaking up, taking place in the outer consciousness (cleaving, splitting, rending, fissure, chasm, an Ammonite who was one of David's guard of mighty men). This breaking up results when the effects of the rule of divine love (David) in the individual reach the outer man (the Ammonites belong to man's outer, sense thoughts).

When any phase of Truth begins to work in the outer phase of man's being, an upheaval, a division of thought, an inharmony and unrest, takes place before the harmony and peace of Spirit are finally established. This is what Jesus meant when He said, "Think not that I came to send peace on the earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." Zelek represents this breaking up in the outer consciousness that is a result of the activity of the word of love and Truth.
