Metaphysical meaning of Jeshanah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Jeshanah (mbd)
Jeshanah, jesh'-a-nah (Heb.)--sleeping; slumbering; inactive; dry; listless; old, i. e., not new.

A place in Palestine whose cities were taken from Jeroboam by Abijah (II Chron. 13:19).

Meta. Inactivity; thoughts that are not open to new ideas, to the activity of spiritual life and youth, but cling to the old ways and old ideas. Such thoughts are at the root of old-age manifestations; the sleeping youth in each individual needs resurrecting, even as Jesus raised Lazarus, that true wakefulness, receptivity, and activity may be brought about.
