Metaphysical meaning of maiden (mbd)

Meta. The "little maiden" who had been captured by the Syrians from the Israelites (II Kings 5:1-14) typifies an offshoot of intuition, which may be designated as spiritual perception. It reveals that the prophet in Israel can heal Naaman, and impresses this on the king until he sends a letter to Israel's king about the matter. This is a symbolical description of the manner in which we transfer the perceptions of Truth to the various departments of the consciousness, and of how they are received. Israel's king is not conscious of spiritual power, although ruling in a realm where power is unlimited. The orthodox religious world is in the place of this king, who "rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive?" Ostensibly the orthodox religious world rules in Israel, but when asked to demonstrate the privileges promised to all who believe in the power of God, it makes excuses and attributes evil intentions, as did Israel's king, to those who think such things possible.
