Metaphysical meaning of En-rimmon (mbd)
En-rimmon, en-rm'-lon (Heb.)--fountain of Rimmon; fount of the pomegranates; fount of substance.

A place in Palestine where some of the Israelites lived after their return from the Babylonian captivity (Neh. 11:29). It is thought to be the same place as Ain and Rimmon, of Joshua 15:32, 19:7, and I Chronicles 4:32.

Meta. The springing up in consciousness of new, abundant life and substance after a period of seeming dearth and inactivity. En-rimmon is mentioned as being reinhabited by some of the Jews who returned from the Captivity; this indicates that praise and prayer, Judah, again become active in the aggregation of thoughts and of nerve cells that are indicated by this city; thus a renewing, a revitalizing, and a fruitful substance-state of mind is established.
