Metaphysical meaning of Zer (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Zer (mbd)
Zer, zer (Heb.)--strait; narrow; pent up; compressed; cleavage; fissure; straits; distress; affliction; tribulation; perplexity; rock; stone pebble; flint.

A fortified city of Naphtali (Josh. 19: 35).

Meta. A group of thoughts of a very strong, established character (rock, a fortified city of Naphtali, Naphtali representing the strength faculty in individual consciousness). This consciousness of great strength lacks the spiritual quality as yet. It is narrow, hard, and unyielding (flint), and has not learned to express in union with love and true understanding, because it is more physical and personal than spiritual. Therefore it leads to confusion, limitation, anxiety, and conflict (perplexity, pent up, compressed, straits, tribulation).
