Metaphysical meaning of Darius (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Darius (mbd)
Darius, da-rl'-us (Gk. from Pers.)--one who conserves; one who restrains; (old Pers.) upholding the good.

The name of three different Median-Persian kings that are mentioned in the Bible (Ezra 4:5; Neh. 12:22; Dan. 5:31)

Meta. The will, or the central ruling ego of the sense consciousness. However, it recognizes the value of, and gives a high place in government to, spiritual judgment (symbolized by Daniel). So that which Darius signifies becomes a conserver of true substance in the consciousness and organism, a restrainer of error, and an upholder of good (one who conserves, one who restrains, upholding the good).
