This latter Mishael was one of the three who were cast alive into the fiery furnace and came out without harm (Dan. 3:12-30).
Meta. Love, Godlikeness, that which is greatly desired and is prayed earnestly for by all persons who have in any degree been awakened to the Christ Truth. The inner self of every person, whether he recognizes it or not, ever seeks and longs to have the individual come into conscious oneness with his Source and into the full expression of his innate Godlikeness. This is the cause of all the unrest, dissatisfaction, and vain outer longings and seekings of man; he will never find peace and satisfaction until he returns to his Father's house, whence he has gone out to "a far country," even to sense consciousness.
