Return Path to Eden
A message from the Sounds of Silence
(Honest people may comprehend this)
The following discourse is based on a 30-year study of the Aquarian Gospel.

A subjective report (and book review) by Michael F. O’Keeffe
The following report describes:
How we may travel the Return Path to Eden,
and how God punishes terrorists (and all perpetrators of evil)
and eventually forgives them.
A summary of many revelations,
now available to readers of
the Aquarian Gospel (the Newest Testament).
During these horrific times (as we approach the end of an Age), the Aquarian Gospel has been given to us to help us prepare. Judgement Day is near.
This newest testament reveals God to the world, and explains our relationship with Him. The poetic text clearly explains our Father’s plan of salvation, and tells us how to prepare for the Day of Judgement. Read carefully.
Christ was recognized as a son of God by only a few 2,000 years ago, and likewise, during present times, the book that reveals the mystery of Christ is recognized and understood by only a few. But soon all will comprehend. The last shall be first, and the first shall be last. The Christ-Return announcement is close. Who has ears to hear, let him hear.
The great mystery of life: it’s all about maturation of souls.
We, as children of God (all of us), are destined to eventually become mature divine offspring, like Jesus. He had attained soul-maturity before our Father sent him to Judea. He came with an assigned task: to give a message to the world. The story of his life is the message. And now the most comprehensive account of his life is presented to us. Previously unavailable, precious new information about the life of Christ is now revealed. (We live in the time of “Revelations.”)
Regarding a mature soul: think about it. What does a mature (male) offspring of God look like, and act like? If he has been a dutiful, loyal and studious child, he can speak and act like his father (and for his father). In strength and in character, he is like his father.
Jesus, a fully mature child of God, became like our Father. He was able to speak for our Father, and act for our Father; all because (through maturity of soul) his mind and thought patterns had become unified with the divine mind, and his will became attuned with our Father’s. Furthermore, his heart became all-loving, like our Father’s. Therefore, as a mature child of God, Jesus’ abilities and character became indistinguishable from our Father. This is son of God.
The Aquarian Gospel describes Jesus life, and it depicts portions of the life of a mature female soul.
We all are Jesus’ youthful brothers and sisters (quite immature), because we all (like Jesus) are children of God; yet he came here as a much older and wiser soul. He came to Earth as a fully mature child of God – capable of speaking and behaving as if he were our Father. All because, in mind and in spirit, he had become one with God. This is Christ.
Our Father sends us super-mature souls very rarely. Indeed, He sent us two supremely mature souls (a Son of God, and a Daughter of God) 2,000 years ago (along with other advanced souls) so that we may learn from them, emulate them, and see what we will be like when we have attained soul-maturity. (Maturation of soul is a long, arduous process.)
Three wise men of the East (beyond the Euphrates) were advanced souls, and they were so endowed with wisdom that they knew how to view human souls (seeing them as points of light). They could see these “stars” coming and going to and from Earth (as people were born and as they departed).
They also knew how to decipher the meaning of the swirling rotation of stars. Thus, they knew what time it was on “the dial plate of heaven”. They discerned that the time of Messiah was very near, and so they looked to the sky for indication that a rare, unusually bright soul was arriving.
As vigilant watchers, they saw the brilliance of Jesus’ soul as it descended to Earth, toward Judea. Because of the extreme brilliance of this descending soul, they knew a mighty master soul had arrived; and they could see that he would be born in the vicinity of Jerusalem. They were certain that the long-prophesied time of Christ was at hand.
They also knew that this brilliant soul would bring wisdom to men – revealing many mysteries about the relationship between God and Man.
They traveled in search of this divine-like child (freshly incarnated). They sought for him in order to honor him. They found him in Bethlehem. And they brought him gold, frankincense, and myrrh – symbols of high office, wisdom and power.
Jesus, our elder brother, came to Earth and lived a divine-like life, to show us The Way; and we can learn from him. We can follow his example and his advice. We can now know how to attain soul-maturity.
The full story of Jesus’ life is a brilliant beacon light within the darkness. The Aquarian Gospel (quite recently given to us) was transcribed by Levi, a wise man – who learned how to view past events. His transcript displays the full story of Jesus’ life. Much information (missing from the four traditional Christian gospels) is now revealed.!.!
After all, these truly are the times of Revelations (Reveal-ations).
The Aquarian Gospel is the book that is sweet within the mouth, but bitter in the stomach. The sweetness is the good news that we all truly are divine offspring, destined to become mature children of our Father (and become like Him, just as Jesus became like Him).
The bitterness is the realization that we are quite immature, and we attain maturity only through monumental effort, over a very long period of time; so very long that we cannot learn all our required lessons during one brief lifetime. Our maturation process requires many lifetimes (many incarnations); and our great struggle is very difficult at times, as it ultimately includes overcoming gratification of all the physical appetites, passions and desires. We must overcome ourselves!!
This victory over self is the straightest and narrowest path, and Jesus (our elder brother) went this way, saying, “You may follow me.” He never deviated.
He dedicated his life to leading us to wisdom, understanding and enlightenment. He did all this so that all souls (willing to listen) might develop important features of soul-maturity, and therefore become prepared for Judgment Day – an event scheduled (by our Father) to happen some 2,000+ years after Jesus’ lifetime.
When Jesus was sent here to Earth, he had already experienced many more fruitful incarnations than we. He was a very ancient soul – so very ancient, that he developed maturity while experiencing numerous incarnations on worlds that existed before this universe even formed. (This is true.) And thus, his maturity of soul was far, far greater than ours. He had often tread the straight and narrow path, more flawlessly each time (during many ancient incarnations). So, when he was born here on this Earth, he was prepared to live “the perfect life.” He was born knowing The Way.
Yet, after he turned twelve years old, Jesus spent another 18 years attending to various studies of philosophy and mysticism, enabling him to reach the very zenith of human potential – to become Christ,… the Messiah… (Immanuel)… (to become the Way, the Truth, the Life and the Light.!.!.!)
The Aquarian Gospel describes these eighteen years, and provides much more information – facts not included in the four New Testament gospels. These newly revealed truths do not detract from traditional Christian scripture; they augment and expand. (The human race is now ready to learn deeper concepts, regarding the nature of God and Man.)
Many people find all this difficult to believe, and some just shake their heads and laugh, and ridicule, as they enter a state of. denial. They do so at their own peril, for Judgment Day truly is near; and the Aquarian Gospel is given to us to help us prepare.
I have spent more than three decades studying this Newest Testament, and I can attest that the wisdom contained within is true. Furthermore, I am confident that any sincere and honest soul who reads Levi’s transcription (carefully and comprehensively) will sense the authenticity, with certainty.
and the Christ Consciousness
Until we have weaned ourselves from all the physical desires (as Jesus did), the divine powers that are within each of us are locked up. Jesus unlocked the divine powers within himself. He invited all of us to strive do the same (by following him… traveling the straight and narrow way). Only a few at a time achieve this; yet eventually (within eternity), everyone conquers all the physical and mental appetites of the lower self. We have no place else to go.
And so, many of us (who are not yet prepared to achieve this) must simply do our best; such as frequent fasting, avoiding such things as comfort foods, flavor intensive food and beverages, very cold food and beverages and carbonated beverages… to cite a few examples.
The avoidance of tobacco, alcohol and pleasure-drugs is essential, and minimization (or abstinence) of libido gratification is very beneficial.
Furthermore, Jesus indicated, we must combine this austere lifestyle with long periods of deep meditation – he taught many of his followers to meditate many hours each night… and thereby use the power of thought to discover a heavenly state within – to find the kingdom – always at hand.
Once one finds this peaceful domain, no thief nor robber (nor any evil person) can ever take it away.
…all because, as divine offspring, we possess the power of creation, and thought is the power of creation. However, we cannot find the kingdom if we engage in a lifestyle of sensuality and pleasure-seeking. (We cannot serve two masters.) Furthermore, he who harbors thoughts of maltreatment and insincerity is headed for catastrophe and destruction.
This is why all real mystics and true prophets maintained lonesome, austere lifestyles – often reclusive – fasting and meditating. Some were known as hermits.
We don’t all need to become hermits, but frequent fasting and spending some quiet alone-time each day (studying one’s self) can help bring one closer to the consciousness of the one-ness of all human beings. This is the Christ Consciousness.
Environment of Earth
We (who fell from grace during “the fall of man”) have resided (ever since then) in the physical realm, where evil thoughts abound (fueled by emotions of selfishness, anger, envy, suspicion, hatred, avarice, lust and revenge); and so, these evil thoughts constitute the environment of the physical realm in which we find ourselves. They swirl about, easily entering the minds of unsuspecting souls (especially when we allow unbridled gratification of our physical appetites, passions and desires).
People who conquer (or minimize) gratification of the physical desires (and live a life of compassion and prayer) can curtail the invasion of such evil thoughts, and thereby can be “saved”… saved from that awful experience called “death.” (Such souls merely depart the physical body in due time; and the wretched, miserable experience called death does not happen.) These fortunate ones have attained eternal life. They reside within the Kingdom.
Those who don’t restrain themselves have almost no chance of rescue. Jesus alluded to this problem when he said, “Woe to the rich is gold and lands; they have temptations multiform,” and when he said, “it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a man with hoarded wealth to find the way of life.”
Perpetrators of evil do not lose the power of creation just because they are evil. They use the power to twist holy thoughts into monstrous belief-systems designed to make their evil ways seem holy and justified. This is the essence of hypocrisy.
Now, near Judgement Day, hypocrisy abounds… and not only in the Middle East; nearly every culture is infested with various forms of this awful scourge.
Human souls, and good and evil
A seemingly normal man or woman may wish to commit a wicked crime, thinking or fantasizing about it (intensely and repetitively over a long period of time). This is very dangerous. Thought is very powerful, and so, eventually and unexpectedly (because of the creative power of thought) an opportunity to perform the malicious act presents itself, and then a decision must be made.
Some decide against following through. Others decide to commit the act, and suddenly the evil deed is done. Unmindful of the power of thought, the perpetrator’s mind actually (and certainly) created the opportunity!... requiring him (or her) to make the crucial decision.
This is one way a normally good person sometimes chooses evil and crime, transforming the soul into evil. (Most of us tend to be unaware of the power of thought.) Just by giving energy to evil thoughts, one can turn the soul’s development toward corruption and wickedness.
[A word of advice: Do not be ashamed or fearful because evil thoughts float into your consciousness. Just use your power to choose. Practice filling your mind with kind and loving thoughts, and eventually, evil thoughts will find no home in your mind. Practice, practice, practice.]
Regarding those who have turned toward evil:
one, shocked and repulsed by his own inhumane and shameful conduct, may become remorseful, and seek forgiveness and re-formation.
Another may cast aside revulsion, and chooses to enjoy a peculiar thrill from evil behavior, becoming addicted. And so, we witness the emergence of a truly evil person (and a serial offender).
He who chooses this dreadful path actually causes his own soul to transform into an evil monster, and he is miserably unaware. (And so, a serial offender finds it nearly impossible to change his ways.) And he is shocked when, after passing on, he is cast into God’s purifying fires, where every evil branch of his soul must be burned away; before he can be allowed to reincarnate, and go forth… and receive opportunities to make right every wrong he (or she) ever committed (facing again and again every situation where he chose wrongly, so that he may have chances to chose rightly).
Some souls have become so immersed in evil ways that they must be almost totally consumed in our Father’s fearsome furnace, save for the tiny inner core – made in the image and likeness of God.
This sacred kernel actually came directly from God; and, like a seed that came from a tree, it contains all the potential attributes of God. And this is the only part of a human soul that can never be transformed into evil, nor can it be consumed in the fires. It can never be destroyed. (This mysterious sacred truth is why we are called “children of God,” and because of this sacred lineage, we are eternal beings.)
The near-complete consummation of a soul is known as “loss of soul.” Jesus once asked the ultimate rhetorical question: “Where is your profit if you gain the world and lose your soul?”
Wages of sin, celebrity-worshipers,
and the attainment of Eternal Life
Jesus also said that each person is himself a field... and that our deeds are seeds that we plant (within ourselves), and we must reap whatever we sow; and so, he advised those willing to listen: “…pay heed to how you cultivate your fields.”
Now we can understand how habitual selfishness and unbridled indulgence can easily impel one’s mind to create wickedness, transforming one’s soul into evil.
Some indulgent people may manage to avoid transforming into evil (by good decision-making and by the sheer force of will), but they are nevertheless sure to experience various kinds of devastation… through disease, accidents and many other forms of distress; all because self-indulgence is sin, and the wages of sin are misery, wretchedness, anxiety and death. (The suffering is proportional to the degree of indulgence.)
This is why so many celebrities experience awful, tragic deaths. Their access to extreme wealth brings them alluring opportunities to engage in excessive self-indulgence, which is self-destructive, foolish behavior.
It’s not wise to worship celebrities and other public figures, as they often act as fools and idiots (over-indulging), and thus experience awful, tragic and frightful departure from this world. (Jesus emphatically advised that men and women “become what they worship.”) Let’s not become idiots and fools.
Instead, let us worship our all-loving, all merciful Father, who is our God.
Men and women who overcome self-indulgence (and live a quiet, self-disciplined, compassionate and prayerful life) never experience affliction, anxiety nor distress, and they do not experience the purifying fires after passing on. Instead, they experience new and beautiful learning situations in the afterlife (in the realm of souls), preparing them to become brighter lights during their next incarnation. This is eternal life. And in future incarnations, they are sure to become prophets and seers, who teach the lost to come to the light, and become the light.
These blessed ones alternate many times between teaching lost souls here (in the physical realm), and learning additional powerful lessons beyond; until they eventually become perfect, and live a perfect life (somewhere on a world in God’s unbounded universe.) as Jesus did, on this earth, 2000 years ago. Now we can understand the full meaning Christ’s words, “you may follow me.”
We must use our minds to create kindness, goodness and compassion, as we strive to overcome our carnal desires. This is why fasting (combined with meditation and a forgiving heart) is good practice.
Jesus’ book teaches: Parents and elders who continuously spoil children with delicious foods (and other lavish things) are teaching the habit of self-indulgence (where thoughts of evil and dishonesty gestate.) This is why many youth of affluent nations end up becoming evil, and commit monstrous crimes. An evil generation can emerge. Thus, successful nations often tend to degenerate and become evil. A nation can become victim of its own success.
God does not allow an evil civilization to endure indefinitely. And this is why so many “lost” civilizations of History have vanished.
Our Father allows disasters, strife and disintegration to happen to an evil civilization, and if opportunities to wake up and reform are ignored, soon that nation is no more.
(saving Western Civilization)
We have made ourselves vulnerable to disintegration, by adopting several evil practices. If Western Civilization is to survive the onslaught of brutal, barbaric warriors (and other threats), we must reform, and begin living as true believers in the culture of Christ. We must reform.
There are seven significant signs that a civilization is turning toward evil.
Two quintessential signs are widespread hedonism and human sacrifice. Western economies are largely based on feeding hedonistic (sensual, selfishl) appetites. And the practice of killing infants upon the altar of convenience is a form of human sacrifice.
There are five other common indicators. They are: the shameful mistreatment of women and girls, enslavement, child-soldiering, honor killings, and yes, the veneration and encouragement of homosexuality and libido deviation (as opposed to simple tolerance of such misguided souls).
The Western world’s widespread practice of displaying female attractiveness (to promote products and services) constitutes one form of shameful mistreatment of women and girls. And this fosters a culture of disrespect. This is also an insult to men, because men who are dedicated to living reverently and righteously find such practice to be distracting and disturbing.
Any nation which exhibits any of the seven signs is in danger of vanishing from History. My beloved nation certainly exhibits four or five of the seven signs.
Hey cable news outlets and product promoters: it certainly would be well if you would halt the common practice of robustly displaying the female form in provocative, suggestive ways while engaging in news reporting, journalism and advertising.
Reformation can save US.
There are three signs that a nation is on the brink of banishment from existence. They are:
1. recurrent harmful attacks and intrusions by brutal, barbaric peoples,
2. the disintegration of internal social, economic and political processes,
3. an increase in frequency and intensity of natural and man-made disasters.
We need to reform. God bless US.
Successful nations should strive to find a way to teach reverence and self-discipline to their youth (without being cruel). The word of God tells us how. However, evil people vehemently resist allowing such social values to flourish. This will not continue indefinitely, however. Our Father has a solution to this problem. It’s not far away… it’s called Judgement Day.
Can the U.S. (and Western Civilization) endure until the announcement of Christ’s return (and Judgment Day)? I have serious doubts.
None can know the hour nor the day.
Forgiveness and Salvation
Human souls (who have not yet learned to live perfectly while on earth) experience the unpleasant purification process (in proportion to their deviation from perfectness). Then they reincarnate, and go forth; and they are assigned the task of making right every evil thought or deed they ever committed – by enduring every mistreatment they ever dished out (as their karma returns to them), and they must forgive their abusers; if they can. If they can’t, they must re-experience the purifying fires again, and again, until finally (after many reincarnations) they develop forgiving hearts, and thereby un-create whatever evil they previously created. (Each person on Earth has a karmic loop, which always revolves, returning to us every good and evil deed we ever committed. This is how we reap what we sow.)
Jesus described karma (“the law of recompense”) many times. Sometimes he described it by saying, “He who wields the sword shall perish by the sword.” Once he described it this way:
“Man is himself a field; his deeds are seeds, and what he does to others grows apace; the harvest time is sure. Behold the yield! If he has sown the wind, he reaps the wind; if he has sown the noxious seeds of scandal, theft and hate; of sensuality and crime, the harvest is assured and he must reap what he has sown; yea, more; the seeds produce an hundred fold.” (chapter 100, vs. 8-10)
He gave an even more comprehensive description of this law when a lawyer (after a deadly storm) asked him why God allows such awful tragedies to happen. This man’s question and Christ’s response can be found in chapter 114, vs. 19-51.
Our Father’s plan allows souls to experience hundreds (or thousands) of incarnations, and during each one of them, He provides opportunities for each one of us to choose good instead of evil… to choose forgiveness instead of retribution.
These voluminous incarnations of every human soul occur, because God owns eternity.
Therefore, eventually, we all get it right.!.!.. and we all start living righteous, compassionate, forgiving lives (more flawlessly each time); and thus each one of us (in due time) begins traveling the Return Path to Eden. And eventually, we all become perfect… just as Jesus demonstrated.
And so, this is how all perpetrators of evil are eventually forgiven. It’s a long, arduous process.
This is the plan of Salvation.
In the final analysis, Our Father’s plan is all about decision-making. Every child of God eventually learns to make all the right decisions, all because our Father owns eternity. Jesus (an ancident, mature soul) made all the right decisions, and encouraged us to follow him. It’s that simple.
loops and Forgiveness,
Now we can understand why good people sometimes experience tragic, horrific events. Good people among us often have evil karma lurking in their distant past, which must be undone.… evil that must be experienced, forgiven, and thereby erased. (Evil karmic events usually return to a soul quite unexpectedly.)
Each one of us has a mystical karmic loop (containing all of one’s past – good and evil deeds). And we must experience all of it.
We all are ancient beings; and so, we all have an ancient past (that few of us can recall), and a recent past, which most of us can recall. (Our karmic loops contain all of our past.) We need to realize that each of us continually receives all the acts and deeds imprinted in each one’s personal karmic loop; and we experience them as we go about our daily lives.
We need to pray that we have the strength to receive our karma with grace, forgiveness and gratitude. Once we have developed such strength, we are forgiven by God, and we may advance toward our destiny of Salvation. This is why Jesus preached forgiveness.
Some have asked about Jesus’ execution: was it karma? No, he had no evil karma in his past. This is why many attempts on his life failed. Yet, to prove Christ’s power over death, he (at the proper time) willingly handed his life over to evil men (who were insanely jealous of Christ’s power), and they swiftly took his life in a most brutal way. However, by the use of the divine power within himself, he experienced no pain. Then, on the third day, he self-resurrected.
Jesus advised the apostles that eleven of them would follow him (painlessly) through the gates of a brutal death.
By living a somber (non-sensual) lifestyle, any person can open a secret floodgate, allowing the inflow of kind, loving and beautiful thoughts, while minimizing the invasion of ugly evil thoughts, emotions and beliefs. Jesus advised a man (whom he had just healed) that he had fallen into affliction because of his thought-patterns. “Just fill your mind with thoughts of blessedness and holiness,” he advised.
Jesus, our elder brother (an ancient soul), usually ate just one bland meal a day (and he sometimes fasted for days). He often meditated (and prayed) from dusk ‘til dawn. Once when a very beautiful woman stirred his soul (as she fell for him), he (after many days of soul searching) respectfully rejected her companionship. (And both shed tears.) He knew that his Messiah-mission was not compatible with libido gratification.
By living this way, he kept at bay all evil thoughts; and he was filled with inspiration from the Holy Spirt, and he created a perfect life, and thus he became a Christ, a Messiah and a Savior.
We all are children of our Father in heaven (eternal spirits), yet we are juvenile. And we all must grow up. We must learn to use our power of creation (through fasting, meditation and prayer) to create a life based on kindness, love, forgiveness and compassion. By so doing, we gradually restore the heavenly realm from which we fell… so…so long ago. This is how we begin traveling the Return Path to Eden.!
We must strive to follow Jesus, because, as divine offspring, we never really die – we simply pass on, and come back (over and over again – many times, learning and developing) until we finally live a perfect life – with the strength to give our lives in willing sacrifice to save the lost, as Jesus, our elder brother, demonstrated.
As we do so, we can pass the baton of holy consciousness… to souls not yet aware… to fellow divine offspring who have reached the stage of willingness to learn. We can become lights upon a lampstand, leading the way, by word and by example… dedicating our lives to save the lost. (And if we are strong enough, giving our lives to save the lost.)
Judgement Day and Destiny of Souls
Judgement Day (not far away) will be a time of separation – men and women who have cultivated kind and loving thoughts (and equivalent behavior) will be separated from those who chose to nurture thoughts (and behavior) of selfishness, sensuality, deception, intrigue and brutality – the core of evil.
The lord advised that, as the Christ-Return announcement approaches, evil men and women will generate a worldwide spasm of appalling violence and bloodshed. Yet we must forgive them… “they are children at play. They know not what they do.” Furthermore, our Lord stated, “he who seeks to save his life will lose his life.”
When we hear of awful abuse and murder, we can be sure we witness two things: someone receiving awful personal karma, and someone creating awful personal karma.
The awful karma one creates (by behaving this way) travels along each one’s uninterruptable, mystic karmic loop, and eventually returns to its source. Thus, evil men and women always reap the awfulness they have sown. Yet they seem to know nothing about karma; and when told of it, they usually laugh and scoff.
The story of Jesus’ life on Earth 2,000 years ago is our example of a mature soul – an ancient soul who had erased all his evil karma long ago, then incarnated here on Earth, to tell us how to erase, and attain maturity. He overcame all the appetites and desires of his lower self, and he banned all evil thoughts from his mind. He thereby became his higher self – a perfect man. A son of god.
A tiny divine kernel had sprouted long, long ago…became a soul that grew over many millennia, and eventually became perfect, like God (our Father); all by proper decision-making. This is Christ.
His life is our example of the life each one of us will eventually live.! …somewhere in our Father’s unbounded universe.
Each man will do and say everything Jesus said and did. Each woman will live a life like Miriam’s. (What else could be the destiny of divine offspring?) (Note: there are two Miriams mentioned in the Aquarian Gospel; the first is Jesus’ aunt – sister of Mary, and the other is the woman who once stirred his soul, and later, aided Jesus in his ministries.)
Before being sent here, Jesus had attained maturity of soul. He had reached full development (becoming a mature child of God, our Father – a soul who had won the victory over sensuality and lavishness). Anc became son of God. And because he had once been an ordinary man (before achieving this transformation), he is also known as Son of man.
Jesus’ assigned duty was to become a savior, to be a brilliant beacon on a hill, within the darkness of human unawareness.
Our Lord knew about The Greatest Paradox: He who restrains himself is free. Furthermore, he knew that heaven is not a place; it’s a state of mind – requiring extensive, constant effort to achieve (and maintain). And he knew that one who achieves this can learn to heal the sick, raise the dead, command storms to cease their fury – and more. What else could be the inheritance of a Son of God?
In chapter 40 of the Aquarian Gospel, Jesus reveals the true nature of the Ark of the Covenant. This mystical vessel can be located and opened by anyone who lives the holy life (as described in his book ). This breathtaking revelation certainly makes it clear that the Ark of the Covenant of Jewish History is God’s symbolic physical representation of the real sacred container.
“You can do anything you believe you can do.”
“He who believes in this gospel of the Son of Man shall never die.”
End of introduction
We knew much of the information presented here before we were born, but we forgot.
(Archeology is the study of ourselves, because our ancestors are us.)

The Good News
Traditional Christian doctrine teaches that God became a man (by incarnating) as the person known as Jesus of Nazareth. Actually, Jesus (a man who had achieved soul-maturity) could speak our Father’s mind, and do His works, because of his maturity; and he could rightfully be called Son of God. Thus, he received his natural inheritance… he was given full access to the three foremost divine attributes: power, wisdom and love.
Because Jesus achieved soul-maturity, he received all this (and more), and all of us (children of God) can achieve this, yet our maturation process is long, gradual, and difficult, and we’re not sure how to attain this kind of maturity. Jesus said, “I am your brother-man, just come to show the way.”
He taught that we truly are eternal spirit-beings (divine offspring); and, in order to achieve divine maturity, we all experience many, many incarnations – all filled with learning opportunities (and opportunities to make decisions). When we make immature decisions, our Father gives us opportunities to choose again (and again and yet again – requiring us to face similar situations over and over) until we finally make the right decision. (Sometimes we notice an exact replica of a past experience, and this seems strange, and we call it déjà vu.)
The repetitive nature of our experiences is part of our Father’s plan; so that our decision-making may become mature, and worthy of a growing child of God. (And this is how our Father brings us to soul-maturity, without infringing on our free will.)
After certain decisions are correctly made, we advance to higher levels that require more difficult decisions, and then on to still higher levels, and so on. There are millions of decisions that we must learn to make correctly (and many levels), before we can rightfully be called Sons and Daughters of God (and inherit his power, wisdom and love). All this learning requires many re-incarnations.
At the end of each span of earth-life, every soul receives a life review – an evaluation of one’s advancement (or retreat) upon his or her level of learning.
Jesus was born – a soul who had previously attained the highest level of decision-making and learning (during ancient times, very ancient times.) Upon this apex of learning and achievement, he incarnated here, and he made every decision correctly during his life on Earth. Thus He lived a perfect, holy life. His life is our example of a life every man will eventually live, as the ages roll through eternity. (His co-laborer, Miriam, gave us an example of a perfect woman.)
All human beings are therefore destined (as the ages pass) to learn and grow, and finally achieve soul-maturity, and become Christ-like, to inherit all divine powers. We have no place else to go.!
Jesus clearly taught that each one of us always receives a continuous stream of opportunities to make decisions and to learn, and advance on the path to maturity. But as children, we resist growth; we like the carefreeness of immaturity. We tend to avoid making unselfish, mature decisions. We dodge the hard choices.
Growth of soul requires difficult, unselfish decision-making (regarding self-control, responsibility, forgiveness and service). However, we don’t want to make the difficult choices. We usually choose the easy way (the selfish, emotional way), and thus we tend to remain immature, retaining the ignorant bliss of youthful souls – free of adult divine responsibility – free to indulge in juvenile fun, diversions and pleasure-seeking.
The problem with this is: tranquility, happiness and joy soon depart, and tragedies and conflicts abound. We often experience frustration, insufficiency of daily needs and periods of deep depression, along with sadness, disease, catastrophes and all kinds of wretchedness – accompanied by misunderstandings, envy, hatred and suspicions. This is “where there is weeping and the gnashing of teeth.” This is an awful state of mind, and this is hell… hell-on-earth.
This dreadful condition can easily degenerate into violence, murder and war – the depths of hell.!.! Those who have slid into this deep abyss must face the rule of karma (God’s law of perfect justice) which states, “he who wields the sword shall perish by the sword.” Indeed, by this law, whatever someone does to any other person will eventually be done to him. This law never fails, and this dynamic is the true meaning of the word, “karma.”
Jesus called this “the law of recompense.” Furthermore, he revealed that this law is also the true meaning of the ancient Jewish saying, “eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth.”
This law is the strongest argument against any mistreatment of other human beings. It is even a strong argument against abortion. One who participates in the abortion of a human fetus is sure to find out (in eternity) what is like to be a fetus aborted (a very unpleasant experience.) And the sense of remorse often experienced by a woman who has willfully interrupted a pregnancy is reflective of the fact that her spirit is subconsciously aware that she has etched abortion fate into the karmic circle of her soul – a very sad and depressing situation.
Why it’s a bad idea to join ISIS and become a terrorist
The secret law of Karma is the best argument against participating in any hatred, violence, murder, war or mass killings. By the power of this law (revealed by the prophets) a murderer or mass killer must eventually be a murder victim (at least as many times as the number of people he killed). And such a person’s time spent between incarnations is quite unpleasant. (Jesus explains all this in his book, The Aquarian Gospel, now available to anyone who wishes to know the wisdom of Christ.)
Whenever a person (or an ethnic group) suffers awful abuse and violence at the hands of others, the sufferers tend to harbor huge resentments toward their abusers, and they wonder why God allows such violations. However, our Father sees the power of his law of karma unfolding. He sees the real cause of horrible mistreatment: the bullied child once bullied others; the murder victim once committed murder; the enslaved ethnic group once enslaved others, and so on. This is the truth that victims of exploitation and cruelty find so hard to accept. Yet, it is the Truth. By the law of karma, people often become victims of themselves.
Jesus, who revealed this hidden truth to his followers, experienced no pain during his cruel execution… all because he had already paid all karmic debts ages ago, and, in more recent incarnations, he had mistreated no one. He was therefore born 2000 years ago – a soul consisting of pure love (like our Father), and he retained the knowledge of how to remain pure while manifesting in the physical world, where evil thoughts and evil behavior abound. Thus he had no abuse-karma etched into the karmic loop of his soul. Furthermore, he could have easily prevented his arrest, trial and execution, but he knew it was time to demonstrate the greatest power of Christ – the ability to endure the cruelest kind of death, and self-resurrect.
The beauty of karmic law is that it works both ways. Those who continuously practice kindness, compassion and decency experience the same. They experience heaven-on-earth.
And so, when any individual (man or woman) advances toward divine maturity, by consistently being kind to all living things, and by making difficult, venerable decisions (especially regarding control of the appetites, desires and emotions), this blessed person begins to experience inner tranquility and peace of mind, and finds profound joy in devoting one’s self to one’s daily tasks. He or she advances toward soul-maturity. When well established, this way of life (this state of mind) becomes heaven – in this world, and eternal life hereafter. Within this wonderful state, all of one’s daily needs are always naturally at hand. “Behold, a man found in a certain field the croppings of a wondrous mine of gold, and he went forth and sold his home and all he had and bought the field; then he rejoiced in wealth.” (AG: 142-15)
On the other hand, he who makes continuous bad decisions retreats from maturity, and if he makes a long stream of evil choices, he descends into an awful inferno (a state of mind that is hell), and many incarnations may be required to climb out of this broiling abyss, by gradually learning to make honest, kind and righteous decisions (unselfish, venerable choices), and thereby become a person of peace and tranquility, and begin climbing the high mountain of perfectness (following the path of enlightened souls who have gone before). Jesus often said, “I am the way, the truth, the life and the light….you may follow me.”
He who follows Christ (by walking the straight and narrow path) travels the Return Path to Eden.
Only a few at a time walk this way, yet eventually everyone does; because our Father owns eternity.
Jesus described this path in chapter 101, vs 11–22, and he commented regarding those who travel this way, and those who do not.
The kingdom of heaven is always at hand (by habitual good decision-making). Hell is likewise always at hand (by continuous bad decision-making). Those who reside in heaven stand aside and silently pray for the lost, and by setting good example, they become the light, and help lost ones see the light, and come to the light. Yet some of the lost are so steeped in evil ways that they are blinded in the presence of the light, and thus cannot recognize the light; and, in their ignorance, they often ridicule and abuse men and women of the light. The lord advised his followers, however, to “just pray for those who trample on your rights.”
Beware: venerable decisions (that foster
soul-maturity) are not those that bring on the selfish accumulation of worldly
wealth and power. Worthy decisions
reflect dedication to kindness, helpfulness, forgiveness and compassion, as
well as strict control of the appetites, combined with dedication to doing one’s
daily tasks honestly and diligently. He
who lives this way is never short of the necessities of life, and need not
worry. He who knows this precious truth
is blessed with the gift of faith. “Again,
the kingdom of the soul is like a treasure hidden in a field which one has
found, and straightaway goes his way and sells all that he has and buys the
field.” (AG: 116-24)
Most of us desperately want peace, security and serenity, but we resist making the difficult, unselfish decisions that bring us this state of mind (which some spiritual teachers call “nirvana”). Jesus taught his disciples how to make the important, unselfish, difficult decisions, including overcoming the appetites and desires of the body – through fasting, meditation and prayer. Thus, he taught them how to reside in The Silence. (And thereby become the light.)
He also taught that: when evil men abuse you, you must make the difficult decision to forgive them. Instead of seeking retribution (or bringing them into court), he said, “Just pray for those who trample on your rights… they are children at play. They know not what they do.” Many followed his advice, and many attained nirvana, finding peace of mind in The Silence.
Jesus, a mature soul, experienced total inner peace, and no physical suffering – not even during his cruel execution. Because of his access to the divine mind, he experienced none of the pain and agony that evil men attempted to inflict (with whip and nails). Furthermore, his foes (immature, irresponsible souls) could not take his life (or harm him in any way) until he handed his life over to them. Then he demonstrated that physical life is transitory: that a completely mature human soul has access to divine power, and can experience the brutalist kind of physical death (fearlessly and painlessly), and can self-resurrect.
He could do all this, because death is an illusion! Indeed, all the physical senses (including the appetites, passions and desires) are illusions, and he who overcomes them becomes one with God, and lives forevermore in Christ; and our Father can speak through such men and women. And these blessed souls can teach immature souls how to overcome our addiction to the physical pleasures and emotions, and thereby find peace, liberty and tranquility.
This is how the word of God comes to lost souls… through ordinary men and women who have overcome. These maturing souls have understood and accepted the Word, and have begun following the path of self-restraint and compassion (the way of the Lord).
Some of the lost hear the word and embrace the precious knowledge, and strive to overcome (advancing toward maturity and heavenly tranquility), while others hear the word and scoff, heaping ridicule upon the messengers of truth, and still others become enraged, and seek to kill our Father’s emissaries. Some hear the message, but try to turn it to selfish advantage by becoming fake minsters and preachers (false prophets). They seem to be good people (on the outside), while inside they live selfish, hypocritical lives – wolves in sheep’s clothing. They often loudly condemn sincere followers of the lord.
Even these angry evil ones eventually realize, however, that they must change their ways, because we all reside in eternity, and within eternity, each one is given an unlimited number of incarnations, until he finally makes The Decision (to become a kind, sincere soul)…. thereby embarking on the long, straight and narrow path that leads to Redemption; to heaven, and perfection.
The plan of Salvation is revealed!
Our Father rarely sends us souls capable of demonstrating soul-maturity and human perfection – he sends a Christ to Earth approximately once every 2,000 years (at the beginning of each new age). A new age is about to commence. We must prepare.
Sometimes the visitation of such highly advanced soul(s) is for the purpose of judgment. The Age of Aquarius is about to commence, and Judgement Day looms. Soon after the Judgement, those who will have been judged worthy will experience what some have called “the rapture.” …they will be sent to a school of Christ, where soul-maturity is accelerated. The rest must remain here and reap what they have sown.
During these times of Reveal-ations, The Aquarian Gospel discloses these truths, and much more. Jesus was a very extraordinary man – so dedicated to love, kindness, honesty, and personal responsibility that his mind and his will became fully synchronized with God’s mind and will. Thus, his soul mingled with the divine spirit. He became one with God. This is soul-maturity. This is son of God. This is Christ.!!
And Christ is granted access to all divine powers, and so Jesus was able to instantly cure disease and injury, calm violent storms, and even raise the dead. He became virtually indistinguishable from God. And he taught that we too (by following his instructions) can learn to live a holy life, and eventually become adult sons and daughters of God. (His vocation in life was to guide and teach us, his younger brothers and sisters.)
He advised that attaining Christhood is difficult, yet all human beings are capable of this, and indeed, we all (without exception) will eventually achieve this, because of who we are.
We are divine offspring. We all experience continuous opportunities to achieve divine maturation. Eventually we all respond appropriately. Neglect of these opportunities constitutes sin. And the wages of sin are distress, discord, disease… and death. When we stop sinning, we continuously mature, and we gradually enter a very peaceful state of existence, and death is no more. Thus, the lord said, “He who believes this gospel of the son of man shall never die.”
To summarize, in The Aquarian Gospel, Messiah reveals (to all who can comprehend) this fundamental truth: Within eternity, God is not limited – He can provide each and every divine offspring with an unlimited number of incarnations – until each one finally makes the decision that leads to adulthood of soul – the decision to become kind, honest, gentle, and compassionate (and self-controlled); and to become forgiving of those who are not yet aware that they must make this fundamental decision.
This is the essence of our Father’s plan. Thus,…. maturation happens! All of us are eventually saved.
Even the cruelest, evilest, most disgusting brute eventually realizes he has been traveling in the wrong direction, and he (or she) makes the all-important, essential decision, and thereby begins the long, difficult process of turning around. How can this be?...
Jesus clearly stated that our Father never created a heaven or hell for us, but we create our own. We always reap what we have sown: whatever one person does to another always rebounds, and eventually the same is done to him. In this way, we create our own heaven or hell (or a mixture of the two). This law of karma never fails.
They who are always honest, kind and compassionate (creating blessed karma) will find their life filled with these pleasant experiences; and, if they refrain from selfishness and indulgence, and perform their daily tasks honestly and diligently, they experience heaven – peace and joy abound; and eventually, they are granted access to information that significantly accelerates soul-development.
Conversely, evil brutes who steal, harm, kill and make war (creating evil karma) will find their life filled with these awful things. And this is hell. And such torment can continue for many incarnations. And so, “He who takes up the sword shall perish by the sword,” (many times.!!) before he finally makes the decision to turn around. Thus, ancient spiritual teachers described hell as: like being tortured in an everlasting fire. (These teachers were also aware of the unpleasant purifying fires that selfish souls experience between incarnations.) Yes, “war is hell,” and he who decides to enter the awful inferno is stuck there for a long, long time.
Jesus explained, however, that there is a way out of hell. When we forgive mistreatment and wickedness, we make amends for wrongs we once committed (before we learned to become kind, compassionate and forgiving). On the way to maturity, we must make amends for all the wrongs we ever committed. Thus, forgiveness must become a habit; and this is how one may find his way out of hell. (Mystics have taught, “Blest are the merciful.”)
It’s no longer a mystery… now we can understand why good people sometimes experience painful, tragic and brutal circumstances. Karma always comes home. Some karma travels a short loop and thus may return in only a few months or years. Some karma is ancient, and has been traveling a great loop for thousands of years.
When evil karma returns to its source, this is that person’s opportunity to make amends – through forgiveness. However, a person’s free will is never abrogated; and so, one is always free to choose unforgiveness (to retaliate and seek retribution). One who makes this unfortunate choice has merely dug himself deeper into hell; and he (or she) must wait for new opportunities to make amends (through forgiveness), and thereby begin climbing out of the awful nightmare.
And this is why it is wise to worship our Father. God extends his mercy to each one of us (in the form of opportunities to make amends) over and over, and over again (eternally.!!)… until we finally choose to follow the advice of wise teachers (to forgive all evil deeds). This is how we make amends. This is how we are forgiven. By forgiving those who deliver us our karma, we forgive ourselves! (And God cannot forgive us until we have forgiven ourselves. This is His law.)
[When we see an evil brute decapitate a living prisoner in the desert, we need to be aware that we witness one soul receiving old karma – as he receives an opportunity to make amends - through forgiveness, and we simultaneously observe a foolish man create his own evil karma.] (Here are some FAQs regarding Karma.)
When evil foes seek to abuse and slay maturing souls (Christ’s ambassadors), the blessed teachers are protected by the law of karma and divine power, and not one of them can be killed; unless, like Jesus, one of them hands over his (or her) life to the emissaries of evil. Such are the dynamics of God’s plan of Salvation. All the world truly is a stage, and the grand drama (of good vs evil) ultimately results (within eternity) in the salvation and deification of every human spirit.
But woe to those who have chosen to be evil – and play roles of Evil – in the grand playhouse. They are condemned to experience an extensive conflagration of unbearable karma (groping about in the darkness of unawareness of karmic dynamics) before they eventually conclude (when their sense of compassion finally emerges) that they must make the essential decision which enables them to eventually work their way out of the inferno, and become good – and play roles of Good (within our Father’s never-ending, eternal dramatic story – His story… History).
And now, we can know why some cultures experience constant episodes of warfare and some are more peaceful. Souls which reside within a karmic hell (of violence, murder and warfare) are often born into the same culture together, and they experience their karma together (as co-combatants, or opposed to one another – on opposite sides of a conflict).
Peaceful people need to be vigilant. Misery loves company: warlike cultures often try to convince peaceful people to join them in hell. [These emissaries of Evil try various devious ways to convince peaceful men and women to adopt force and violence (the sword) as a way to resolve differences.]
We can now understand why (after a nation has experienced multiple brutal invasions) certain areas, towns and households were untouched by the devastating violence, while others bore the brunt of it. It all depends on where souls who carry war-karma reside.
And we can now fully understand why Jesus said (after ignorant brutes drove nails into his wrists and feet), “Father, forgive these men; they know not what they do.” He knew these men were creating terrible karma for themselves, while the priests, scribes, Pharisees and vicious mob (who, together, orchestrated the awful event) created excruciating karma for the Jewish nation (a curse spanning from Masada to Warsaw and Auschwitz, and only recently seems to be finally dissipating).
[Rejection and murderous abuse of a Messiah creates the harshest kind of karma that can be created. A Christ is sent into the world only once each 20 centuries. We can expect to see his return in the flesh sometime this century. But beware, Jesus warned that near the time of the Christ-announcement, many false prophets and fake christs will appear in many lands, and some will display astounding works, and thus many people (both wise and unwise) will be deceived. Before the genuine Christ-announcement happens, intense violence and warfare will be rampant. Yet this sudden, unexpected announcement will mark the end of warfare on Earth, and soon thereafter, Judgment Day will occur. Prepare.]
[Those judged worthy (those who strove to be honest, kind and compassionate) will be whisked away to a sacred, heavenly school – to learn all about how to accelerate their soul development (and become Christ-like)…. Two man may be asleep; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women may be at work; one will be snatched away, and the other left.]
Thus, Judgment Day will be a cleaving of the human race. Half will be taken up to the school of Christ, and half left in the abyss, not admitted. The unfortunate ones must wait for the next Judgment Day – which will not occur until the ages roll again, and after approximately 14 billion years have elapsed.
During that vast elapsing of time, those who have studied in the school of Christ will be servants of the lost – as prophets, seers, teachers – and they will often give their lives, so that lost souls may awaken unto this sacred Truth of God: We are all children of God, and we all eventually (in eternity) mature to become like our Father.
Every child of God (even the evilest) eventually recognizes the wisdom in forgiveness, and thus begins climbing out of misery, but these children of darkness must be taught by children of the light.
Forgiveness is much more valuable than revenge; and this is why an ancient prophet advised us not to pursue punishment of evil men, uttering these words, “Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord,” (advising us to just pray for unenlightened perpetrators of evil, and let God’s law of karma provide perfect justice.) (…and “rejoice not over these fallen foes.”)
After a lost soul has finally extricated himself from hell, he can begin climbing the ladder that leads to adulthood of soul (by living a kind and compassionate life and by teaching others “the way”). Eventually he can be called Son of Man, for he has evolved to perfection – becoming a Son of God (and a perfected woman becomes a Daughter of God).
As God’s very own Children (residing in eternity) what else could be our destiny?
Jesus also explained that human perfection is normal, not strange; and we who have not yet achieved soul-maturity are in an abnormal condition (as a result of the fall of man), and the process of regaining our lost estate (and re-establishing perfection) is long and difficult. Yet we must achieve this salvation. We have no place else to go.
[He also challenged the thinking of racial bigotry, and then told a parable designed to explain why God allows human souls to manifest in different colors; and he went on to affirm the equality of all human beings. See chapters 24 and 25.]
Yes, "Just pray for those who trample on your rights," is the advice Jesus gave to those who would follow him. And we must "rejoice not over fallen foes," but remember them in our prayers, for they are sure to be given opportunities (as they reap what they have sown) to make better choices (again and again and yet again – eternally) until they finally choose to become kind, forgiving and compassionate – in their long, long trek to perfection (within unbounded eternity).
Meanwhile, in our own long trek, we must be vigilant not to fall into selfish, sinful ways ourselves, and we can now read the new book of scripture – the sacred text that reveals many secrets which help us along the way.
Jesus entered this world with a clean karmic slate. His life is our example of human perfection. He leads the way. He is our example what all men and women are capable of becoming (and indeed, will become), when each has completed his own long voyage to perfectness. Miriam (Jesus’ co-laborer) is our example of female perfection.
The Aquarian Gospel contains a very comprehensive account of Jesus’ life (and part of Miriam’s), and this new scripture includes the instructions and commands Jesus gave his disciples (those men and women who recognized his oneness with our Father-God).
One can achieve soul-maturity by following the path Jesus walked, and if you comprehend this, you may be ready to walk the
Path to Eden
hear the quiet, silent, still, small voice,
look beyond the misty veil,
walk through, if able.
survey unwavering slender luminous trail,
(path so narrow, straight as an arrow),
stride on, come upon mystery
clasp golden cup,
Drink from the Holy Grail
the information presented here is more valuable than a vast goldmine, and if you comprehend this, you have been blessed, for you now
sip from the cup of wisdom. most people(of the world) are oblivious to this priceless understanding, and most do not care to know.
who was Jesus the Christ? He was man, a child of God (as are we), and He had achieved full maturity ---- (adulthood of soul).
He had grown, to become like our Father, all wise, all loving and all powerful, after a great many incarnations of learning.
our Lord said he is simply our elder brother, and by following Him, we too are capable of attaining soul-maturity.
leading the way, Jesus, our Lord and Savior, showed us how we may save ourselves, by overcoming.
we must conquer our addiction to all carnal pleasures and sensuality, as he overcame.
by winning this important victory, we walk the straight and narrow path,
faithfully following the Lord, setting good example.
he who begins walking this mystic trail
soon comes upon a secluded field
and discovers hidden croppings
of a wondrous mine of gold,
and he quickly goes,
sells all he has,
acquisition of this awesome meadow symbolizes
perseverance – adherence to the straight and narrow path.
perseverance is essential to attaining the victory; and therefore,
perseverance is the price of profound, unlimited, hidden treasure.
Are you Prepared to walk the Return Path to Eden ? .
Preparation requires much fasting! And long hours of meditation and prayer. Practice,
Begin your journey well prepared, and don’t look back !!
Unwavering resolve is what we must give in order to obtain the prized quarry – also known as the pearl of greatest price.
What are the benefits of attaining this Victory? As one draws close, he or she can become aware that the entire physical universe we perceive
is an illusion (a false perception of reality) residing in the human and animal collective consciousness. Jesus won the victory, and by so doing, he
escaped the curse (the energy-field) that binds our minds to the illusion, so that he could perceive true reality – where life is eternal and where there
are no conflicts! He often said, “You may follow me.” However, he also advised that following him is like climbing the highest mountain, and one must
well prepare. He gave this solemn advice to his apostles and other followers “Count well the cost before you start to follow me…and don’t look back.”
And this is how we recover from The Fall of Man; each individual must redeem himself. Christ is a man
who, long ago, redeemed himself, and his task (during his final incarnation 2,000 years ago) was to show us The Way.

A Review of the Aquarian Gospel
by Michael F. O’Keeffe
And the Day of Transition
(The simple dynamics of mysterious “dark energy” – also revealed)
The Aquarian Gospel reveals many of the mysteries of God and our relationship to Him. Our association with our Father is simple, yet profound, and as youthful offspring, most of us find it difficult to comprehend. Yet, we can acquire an understanding by grasping the concept called “God’s Magnificent Garden.”
Here is an explanation:
When small cuttings are taken from common flora and inserted into moist soil, they sprout roots and grow, and become perfect reproductions of the parent plant. Many types of vegetation can replicate this way, and scientists call this kind of transplantation “total regeneration.” Some plants, under lab conditions, can reproduce simply by the removal of individual cells, and insertion into rich soil.
God is Spirit, and we are God’s children, and He reproduces through "total regeneration." As His offspring, we are Divine Spirit Cells, which God removed from Himself, and inserted into fertile soil (called the physical universe). In this soil, we are expected to learn, grow and develop, and eventually become mature, adult descendants of the divine – perfect offspring of our parent – God.
Jesus achieved this! And he said we must do the same.
We require many incarnations in the soil of physicality before we can achieve this. As we learn and grow, our souls periodically call for new containers and refreshment of soil. Thus, each reincarnation is like a new transplantation. And between each incarnation our Father burns away all wayward growth of soul, so that we may begin each lifetime with new opportunities to become God-like, instead of selfish (evil, brutal and sinful). In this way, after many incarnations, each spirit-cell eventually becomes a perfect soul (like Jesus, and like Miriam, his lesser known female co-laborer).
Thus, during many lifetimes of learning, all human spirits eventually attain full growth and maturity. Each of us is destined to eventually develop the ability to instantly heal disease and injury with mental power, and furthermore, we will finally learn how to conquer death itself. Immortality is everyone’s destiny. The Aquarian Gospel (Jesus’ own book) shows us The Way!
The divine descendant who incarnated on Earth over 2,000 years ago (known as Jesus, the Christ) was initially inserted into the soil of physicality during very ancient times (many, many ages before our original transplantation). Therefore, when he incarnated here, he was an extremely ancient soul, who had previously experienced countless incarnations; and thus, his soul had already attained maturity.
God, our Father, rarely sends an extremely ancient, fully mature soul to earth – He sends us a Christ at the beginning of each age – and an age consists of a little more than 2,000 years. The Age of Aquarius is about to commence! The return of Christ is very near! And Judgment Day looms.
Those who are found worthy (those who strove to be kind, just, honest and decent) will be admitted to the Aquarian Age – a sacred school of Christ, where all who attend will be taught many of the precepts of Christhood, on a world filled with advanced spiritual teachers. The unworthy will pass on, and soon reincarnate into primitive civilizations, on other worlds.
Students of the school of Christ, after much spiritual learning, will pass on (without experiencing death) and will eventually reincarnate (as prophets, seers and teachers) into worlds that have not yet formed….(just as Jesus, a long, long time ago, attended a similar sacred school of Christ, on a world that no longer exists, and after passing from that world, he eventually reincarnated multiple times as a spiritual teacher, achieving greater perfection; until he finally incarnated here, into this world – as the greatest prophet and teacher – Christ, our Lord and Savior!).
This is the process of creation (God’s plan revealed!) and it goes on and on…..eternally. The number of God’s children is unlimited, and newly released divine offspring are often strewn about into the soil of physicality. And this is why God’s domain (manifesting as the universe) continuously expands. And this eternal expansion is the force behind mysterious “dark energy.” [Jesus explained to Barata Arabo (a Buddhist monk) how the physical universe came into existence.]
As God’s offspring, we eventually mature and become gods, inheriting all of our Father’s powers. Jesus’ life demonstrates this profound truth.
As a mature master-soul, Jesus was granted his inheritance – divine power, divine wisdom, and divine love – the trinity-bequest. And so, as an adult child of God, Jesus had become identical to our Father. He had become a full-fledged Son of God – living an incarnate life. Therefore, he came to Earth as our elder brother – much elder. His mission (his assigned task) was to live a perfect incarnate life, while guiding less mature souls (teaching us to follow him) so that we may make significant progress in our long trek to become like him – (in our long trek to become like he who had become like our Father). This would be his final incarnation.
Thus, our Lord was sent here to teach (to teach us – his youthful brothers and sisters). And, by so doing, he delivered a message to the whole world (to all human souls mature enough to listen and comprehend). The message Jesus brought clearly states that every one of us is destined to eventually achieve his level of maturity, and become exactly like him (and like Miriam), and they came to show us the way. Their lives are our example of what all men and women are capable of becoming (and will become). We have no place else to go.!!
What other destiny could exist for God’s own children, other than to eventually attain full maturity, and acquire all the wisdom and power of our Father, and become exactly like Him? (As Jesus did, and as Miriam did.) Jesus and Miriam are our example of two human souls who finally attained full maturity, and became identical to our Father-Mother-God (the ultimate destiny of every human being)! - The ultimate destiny of every pair of souls.
And this is why ancient scripture strongly discouraged divorce, homosexuality and sodomy. During each incarnation, pairs of souls usually meet, and if they are blessed, they recognize one another as their “other half,” and they marry. Remaining faithfully wedded ‘til death augments their progress toward eventually attaining complete soul-maturity and perfection – (like Jesus and Miriam).
Make no mistake: our maturation process is very long and difficult, and those who are totally oblivious to the knowledge described herein are destined to endure many, many incarnations before they are prepared to accept and comprehend these profound truths. Furthermore, those of us who now accept and comprehend this precious knowledge are not far ahead of the ignorant ones. We too have much learning to achieve, requiring multiple incarnations. And during each earth-life we must strive to walk the straight and narrow path more perfectly, until finally, each of us lives a perfect incarnate life (as Jesus and Miriam demonstrated). But beware: an enlightened person may fall, and take a giant step backwards – like Judas.
And so, now, during these decisive times, we can finally know what it means to be God’s children. We are learning how to become like our Father!! We certainly have no place else to go! Indeed, our souls have no place else to grow. Growth in any other direction always leads to misery, sadness, sickness, strife and death.
As God’s offspring, we have the power to direct our souls’ growth. By choosing to harbor certain kinds of thoughts, a soul grows in certain directions. The person who cultivates thoughts of selfishness (envy, hatred, dishonesty and sensuality) causes his soul (and personality) to grow in that direction, and if he ignores natural warning signs (that he is “headed for trouble – going the wrong way”), he will continue this wayward growth, and thus will become increasingly selfish and dishonest, and eventually, he will find himself (or herself) living an evil life. This is how God’s own offspring are capable of becoming criminals and hypocrites of the worst kind.
Christ, who said, “Follow me,” harbored only noble, unselfish, honest thoughts. Whenever selfish, envious or dishonest thoughts occurred, he chose not to harbor them. He gave them no energy; he simply refused to cultivate them, and he proactively filled his mind with thoughts of blessedness, kindness, helpfulness and love. In this way, he was always vigilant – on guard against all selfishness and evil, and he combined this way of life with daily fasting and prayer; and thus, his soul continuously grew toward kindness and love – toward Godliness; and this is how he lived a perfect incarnate life (free of sadness, scarcity, sickness and accidents), and this is how he achieved the pinnacle of human maturity – Christhood.
Souls that grow in selfish directions become sick (mentally, physically and psychologically), and soon the physical body (in which the soul temporarily resides) experience sadness, stress, ailments and pain; and the intensity of this misery is always directly proportional to the extent of the selfishness (and deviant soul-growth).
Jesus, who lived a perfect, selfish-free (sinless) life, never experienced sickness, injury, poverty or pain; and after allowing selfish, evil (jealously enraged) men to kill his mortal flesh, he demonstrated his power over death – he resurrected; and he triumphantly showed his risen self to many who had followed him (and also to the foolish, jealous rulers who had orchestrated his execution).
His mission was to teach us, so that we may learn to conquer death. Thus, he taught that we must learn to think like our Father!!, as he had learned (because thought is the power of creation). He taught that thinking selfishly is sin, and that the person who thinks selfishly soon behaves selfishly, because behavior is the child of thought. He taught that banishing all selfish thoughts from one’s mind is a monumental task, and the only way one can learn to accomplish this is by following the instructions of one who has learned; and his book, The Aquarian Gospel, shows us the way, and helps us prepare for Christ’s return. Thus, he said, “You may follow me.”
For ages, we (youthful souls) have been unaware that the cultivation of selfish thoughts is the source of all unhappiness (and irregular soul-development), and so we have continued in our ways (during each incarnation) and our souls have continued to experience wayward growth (during each incarnation); yet all of our ignorant foolishness has helped us learn – because we are always learning, especially by our mistakes.
As our incarnations pass by, we eventually realize that harboring selfish thoughts creates selfish (sinful) behavior, and produces the following unpleasant consequences: pain, incapacity, sorrow, irregular soul development and finally, death. These are the wages of sin.
Thus, sin is simply selfish thinking (and the behavior that selfish thinking creates). And selfish thinking, unchecked, begets more selfish thinking and soon this wayward path leads to monstrous sins and inequities.
Furthermore, human groups (such as cities, nations, religious associations and commercial enterprises), which encourage a culture of selfish thinking, soon degenerate into all kinds of self indulgence and sin. Their awful crimes eventually become exposed, and they become sick in spirit, and if they do not reform, eventually, they fail and pass away.
Our Divine Father’s plan calls upon us to learn how to conduct our lives in a way that promotes perfect, healthy growth of soul. He requires that we learn how to live a sinless, unselfish life (the life of Christ), as Jesus and Miriam demonstrated. However, we (human souls) must achieve a certain level of maturity before we can understand (and accept) this requirement. Only then are we prepared to make the decision to engage in The Struggle – the struggle to attain a sinless, unselfish, holy life (the life of self control and victory over carnal pleasure) – the way of the Lord.
In order to achieve the required threshold of maturity (and develop understanding, and become willing to strive for the victory) our souls undergo a very long, gradual process of learning.
For example, during each lifetime in the physical realm, we carry subconscious memories of our past lives, including memories of unpleasant, fearsome consequences we have suffered due to selfish living; and therefore, we experience a sense of fear and trepidation when faced with opportunities to repeat previous modes of selfishness, sensuality and transgression, and we gradually learn to make better choices, And thus, we learn to live less selfishly (less sinfully) as our incarnations pass by… one after another. This is how our souls slowly attain the required threshold of consciousness, maturity and understanding that is required. (We finally become aware that we must engage in The Struggle.)
Furthermore, because the distasteful consequences of deviant soul-development are so unpleasant for us (and so unsightly unto God), He mercifully grants us opportunities to recover. He accomplishes this by burning away all wayward soul-growth (between incarnations). This purification process is not pleasant, and the duration and intensity of this procedure is proportional to the degree of deviant growth. Our subconscious memories include recollection of these unpleasant cleansing experiences. (Many childish nightmares are flashbacks.)
After human souls are cleansed of delinquent, unwholesome growth, each one moves on – to one’s next incarnation, and then, on to the next (each re-incarnation being like a day in the long life of a soul); and by divine plan, each person eventually re-experiences every situation in which he or she had previously chosen selfish paths (so that we may have opportunities to properly re-create ourselves, by making better choices – by choosing to think like our Father).
By this process, all infants enter the world “cleansed,” and so, Jesus advised: “Woe to the man who leads a child astray. It were better for him if he had gone and drowned himself.”
Thus, during each reincarnation, a soul has been given precious opportunities to choose differently – to make less selfish (less sinful) choices, enabling more suitable, healthier growth of soul. (We often need to re-experience a situation many times before we finally decide to make the right choice, and we are sometimes strangely aware that we have previously faced certain situations, and we call this peculiar awareness déjà vu.)
God’s plan calls upon all his children to eventually attain full, wholesome and complete perfection (maturity of soul) – by finally achieving a totally sinless incarnate life – as Jesus demonstrated. Indeed, our Father requires this of every one of us. Because He requires this, and because he burns away deviant soul-growth between incarnations (and because He owns Eternity), the sinless life of Christ is everyone’s eventual destiny. We truly have no place else to go.
When a person wanders extremely far astray (deep into selfish, sensuous ways and dreadful crimes, resulting in extreme distress and misery), this soul’s colossal, unsightly, errant growth becomes utterly ugly in God’s eyes. If He deems such a soul to be irredeemable, this unwise person, after passing on, must linger in the purifying fires until nothing remains except the original Divine Cell; and then, this indestructible, eternal sacred seed must begin anew. Thus, the soul, like a bush cut back to its root, sprouts again.
And so, a person may lose his or her soul, yet deep within the root of every soul there is a part that can never be destroyed, because we are God’s offspring. (Each soul’s original divine cell is eternal). Loss of soul (our “worst nightmare”) is so fearsome and unpleasant; prophets and masters have called it “the second death.”
Fortunate (more mature) souls gradually awaken to the fact that God truly is our Father, and that He requires us to become mature (sinless) descendants. Souls who are aware of this (who have ears to hear) become devout, earnest and prayerful; and consequently, they receive a great blessing: they experience a pruning process during their incarnate lives. That is, they are given learning experiences, which impel them to give up selfishness. They have advanced beyond the maturity threshold, and can recognize (and follow) The Way. Thus, they avoid the purifying fires between incarnations. Their time in the realm of souls (between incarnations) is pleasant and rewarding. (This is heaven, in a measure. After a soul achieves Christhood, heaven in full measure is attained.)
In the Aquarian Gospel, Jesus explains how we can achieve the life of Christ, by learning to continuously grow in the “right” direction – traveling the path of unselfishness and self-sacrifice – the path that is totally free of the awful snares and pitfalls (known as disease, injury, poverty, warfare, stress, grief and death).
Our Lord’s life-story demonstrates The Way – the way of life that fosters perfect soul-development, and thus precludes the need for both pruning and purification – the way of life that leads to perpetual tranquility and eternal life. He explains that anyone can follow this Way – by conquering the strong human tendency to revere sensuality and live selfishly.
Thus, the Lord teaches us how to overcome all the voluminous and various forms of selfishness – a very difficult accomplishment. Few souls (at a time) achieve this, yet eventually everyone does, and after one has finally achieved this, sadness and pain no longer exist. Life is full of tranquility and peace; and there is no death!
Our Father selects His greatest prophets (and other holy teachers) from those who have achieved this – from men and women who have won The Victory – the victory over the carnal self.
We are eternal spirit-beings, and we have been growing for many ages, yet most of us are still immature and selfish, and thus, we still experience incidents of pain, misery, sadness and gloom, as well as death. Mature (unselfish) souls never experience these. They know that death is merely an illusion, and they know how to overcome it.
Messiah’s strongest desire is to teach us (his younger brothers and sisters) so we may learn to conquer the source of all human sadness and demise. He works diligently to convince us to give up all carnal gratification and indulgence – the cause of all human melancholy, and the cause of mortality! When a Messiah comes to Earth, he teaches by word and by example. He leads the way, and we must follow.
God sends us a fully mature soul very rarely – at the beginning of every age, and an age consists a little more than 2,000 years. When he comes, he is an elder who can be called Christ or Messiah. He instructs all (who are willing to listen) how to put away selfish tendencies, and thus attain a peaceful, heavenly state of mind.
Any person who achieves this never lacks for anything, because he or she has found (and acquired) a field of buried treasure! Many less mature souls, who are unaware of this, constantly indulge in sensual and selfish ways, and thus, these unenlightened brethren often experience shortages of the necessities of life, and their lives include countless episodes of strife, intrigue, sadness, sickness, and misery (often including warfare and various forms of violent death).
Another way of stating the situation is this: Men and women who engage in a life of self-indulgence (the party lifestyle) experience some fun and enjoyment (for a time), but this is foolishness, and if they persist (without reforming and developing a much more mature, responsible way of life), they soon experience many devastating consequences, such as ailments, poverty, gloom, rage, anxiety and death.
Some people (while wise enough to refrain from the party lifestyle) often make a different kind of dreadful mistake: they utilizing their superior vitality and intellect to engage in a different kind of selfishness. They pursue psychological gratification. That is, they seek to attain worldly wealth, power, lofty social status and fame; and in quest of these goals, they often exploit the weaknesses of others, and trample on their rights.
This lifestyle is also utter foolishness, and these exploiters soon suffer fearsome consequences, because God’s Law of Righteousness requires that his offspring utilize their talents to promote love, unselfishness, kindness and peace – in service to Mankind. (And so, by our Father’s law of karma, the exploiters soon become the exploited.)
Christ came to convince us to live a noble, forgiving, self-disciplined life, and thereby follow him in The Way of life that brings us tranquility instead of wretchedness and anxiety, yet the essence of this precious message was somehow lost, and is almost entirely missing from official Christian Scripture. The Aquarian Gospel (only recently given to us) restores the essence of Messiah’s message, and enables us to prepare for his return.
Unfortunately, most of the messages (we see and hear in modern media) promote self indulgence and excessive gratification, and the party lifestyle. These messages (along with many “entertainment” shows) deceive us, and they attempt to convince us to live “the foolish life” of immature souls. These messages encourage us to remain weak. Thus, most media shows and messages glorify indulgence, deception, stupidity, aggression and hypocrisy.
These messages are the complete opposite of Christ’s message; and they can therefore rightfully be called “anti-Christ.” Many of these communications pretend to promote products, but in reality, they subtly (and sometimes unashamedly) encourage malevolent attitudes – by portraying foolish, sinful lifestyles as acceptable, normal and preferable. Beware of anti-Christ messages.
Deception is the primary tool of the evil one. Ridicule is his secondary tool; ignorance is his third, and fear is his fourth. Thus, Evil does everything in his power to convince us to venerate sensuality and irresponsible lifestyles, and he steers people away from precious Truth by heaping ridicule upon those who know, understand (and teach) the essence of Christ’s message, and he works tirelessly to ensure that common people are unaware of the Lord’s precious book (The Aquarian Gospel) – by making it seem fearful – labeling it as “occult”. (And by ignoring it.)
Thus, most religious leaders and modern media have ignored (or denounced) Messiah’s publication; and many spiritually inquisitive people have opted not to examine this sacred book, because of the fearsome “occult” label. They have fallen victim to Evil’s four primary weapons – deception, ridicule, ignorance and fear.
The Aquarian Gospel contains Jesus’ instructions, and this sacred book has been given to us to help us prepare for that extremely rare event – the appearance, on Earth, of a fully mature soul – the return of Messiah!
All who diligently follow our Lord’s instructions will make the transition from immaturity of soul, past adolescence, to young adulthood; and after we have made this transition, we will have learned to abandon most forms of selfishness and self indulgence, and thus, our days of experiencing severe episodes of sadness, disputes, grief and misery will come to an end. We will have learned to put aside all our petty differences. Each of us will finally understand that all other human beings are part of one’s self.
We will comprehend universal oneness, and we will no longer quarrel. There will be no more war on Earth! These marvelous, promised times are not far away. They will occur soon after the Age of Aquarius commences.
Prophecy clearly indicates that current world violence, greed and turmoil and massive disasters, and mysterious, perplexing occurrences in the skies and on the earth (along with an abundance of self-appointed, deluded prophets) – all, signal the conclusion of the current age, and the impending commencement of that new age. We now experience the “end times.”
There will be a day of transition, marked by a momentous event – a Messianic announcement, which will bring world peace – followed by a sorting of souls, and Judgment Day. A close inspection of every human soul on that Day will determine who can attend the coming new age – an age of peace, and an age of magnificent, advanced spiritual learning.
Thus, Judgment Day will be like a major rearrangement of souls – many (those who are prepared) will be guided into broader, more fertile fields. Souls displaying significant selfish growth will be uprooted.*
Then, guided by the wisdom of Christ, we will re-establish clear telepathic communication, not only among ourselves, but also between us and the animals; and we will thereby re-establish dominion over all earthly creatures (great and small). We will guide them, and convince them to abandon aggression – to adopt love, gentleness and peace – and finally, “the lion will lay down with the lamb,” as the meek receive their inheritance!
That wonderful time is not far away. The day of transition is near. Yet, “none can tell the hour nor the day when man shall be revealed.”
In summary, we are God’s seeds, planted in a soil of His own design, and whenever we incarnate in the physical realm, we have been given opportunity to grow and develop into mature children of the divine. However, when we chose to live selfish, scandalous lives, we are merely utilizing the divine powers within us to grow awkwardly – to send shoots in ungainly, gnarled directions; and thus we become more deeply embedded in the soil, instead of growing tall and straight, into the light.
Those who keep the Ten Commandments naturally tend to grow strong, straight and tall – into the light of understanding, knowledge and wisdom; and after many incarnations (developing within this nurturing radiance) these blessed ones eventually achieve divine maturity (like Jesus). Every God-seed finally achieves this. None are lost in eternity.
We possessed telepathic abilities and dominion over the animals prior to “the fall of man.” However, like an infant who could not maintain a grasp, we lost our precious abilities (many ages ago) because of selfishness. Judgment Day will separate those of us who are finally prepared to maintain a grasp on our inherited God-given abilities, from those who are not.
Jesus’ instructions are now presented to us, in Levi’s marvelous transcript of Messiah’s life and teachings. His transcription is published as The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ – a new book of scripture (only recently given to us) to help us prepare. This book is the most precious publication in History!
This concludes the prologue of my review of the Aquarian Gospel. Here is the main section of the review.
Be advised that if you comprehend (and sincerely strive to live the holy life Jesus describes),
you must prepare yourself to be regarded, at best, as strange (or even insane) and worse, you may be spurned (by friends and family alike),
considered a fool, a failure, and even a criminal. Yet this isolation will not cause loneliness, for you will hear the still, small voice.
And you will see the face of God.
“Behold, a man found in a certain field the croppings of a wondrous mine of gold,
and he went forth and sold his home and all he had and bought the field; then he rejoiced in wealth.”
The Victory – The Pearl of Greatest Price
In this astounding sacred text, Jesus reveals that death is simply an illusion. He teaches that we, as God’s children, are eternal spirit-beings, and we never really die. We are always alive. However, each of us periodically “wears” a physical body, which is prone to injury, disease and aging, and must soon pass away.
Our bodies (the physical forms in which we temporarily reside) are filled with many selfish and sensuous desires (and egocentric impulses), and we must overcome every one of them. No one ever enters Heaven (a state of mind) until he or she has won this Victory. It’s so simple: anyone, who overcomes all the physical appetites, passions and desires (and does not look back), experiences a life filled with peace and joy, followed by greater happiness hereafter.
Conquering all our carnal cravings is a monumental task, and we must always do our best. Yet, the Lord advised caution; one may attempt total victory prematurely, or too strenuously. (One who decides to climb the tallest mountain must prepare carefully.) Thus, he said, “take stock of yourself before you start to follow me… and don’t look back. Remember Lot’s wife.”
Now we know why Messiah said, “the Kingdom is at hand.” Each person controls his own fate, and anyone who faithfully follows Christ (by completely vanquishing the selfish self) begins to experience a serene and cheerful state of consciousness (called Paradise!). All sadness and grief gradually disappear.
And if one steadfastly adheres to this precious path (without EVER looking back), the joyous serenity grows strong and pervasive (filling one’s life), because he or she has won The Victory. He or she has acquired “the Pearl of Greatest Price.”
The Lord also described winning The Victory as like discovering “a wondrous mine of gold.”
Conquering one’s carnal self is indeed a treasure, which belongs to all
who (by exercising will power) become strong enough to take possession of it !
Conversely, the Lord explained, when we travel in the opposite direction, by flagrantly and habitually indulging in sensuous pleasures, selfishness and egocentric desires, we are (knowingly or unknowingly) violating God’s Law of Righteousness, and thus we are busy sowing the wind, because we cultivate illusions! When we foolishly do this (by perusing status, affluence and sensual gratification) we eventually experience many awful consequences, which bring restlessness, wretchedness and grief, as we reap what we have sown.
Unenlightened souls are unaware that when devastation comes, like disease and poverty (and all types of misery), we have brought these upon ourselves. We become victims of our own self-indulgence. When we live sensual and selfish lives (with little self restraint), we soon suffer shocking repercussions, because we have chosen to reside “where there is weeping and the gnashing of teeth.”
When we choose to reside there (by allowing carnal, selfish impulses to predominate) we soon experience (by law of nature) the pain and misery of accidents and injuries, as well as physical and mental diseases, misunderstandings, disputes, scarcity and wars, and all kinds of social upheavals, and many kinds of “natural” disasters; and if we fail to reform (fail to conquer our carnal passions and desires) we eventually experience the most unpleasant repercussion of all – the illusion called death.
The story of Sodom and Zeboim (Gomorrah) is the chronicle of a natural disaster that was brought about by one culture’s frequent, flagrant violations of the Law of Righteousness. Many other cities and “lost” civilizations disappeared due to similar repercussions. (And now, during these end-times, we daily witness the awful sufferings of individuals and groups – cities, businesses and states – who pay the awful price for living selfish, indulgent lives.)
The severity of a person’s (or a civilization’s) death-experience is directly proportional to the intensity of the self-indulgent practices. A self-indulgent nation’s demise arrives either by some “natural” disaster(s) or at the hands of another culture’s superior weaponry or simply by mass migration or government corruption, or by a combination of these. (Much of ancient Jewish Scripture describes these kinds of events.) And, of course, the axiom, “whoever wields the sword shall perish by the sword,” is always a factor.
My own cherished nation (and culture) is in danger of perishing. If we do not soon turn away from selfish, indulgent, wicked ways, we will quickly become nothing but a memory – a mere paragraph in other nations’ history books. Wake up America! Devastation and destruction are knocking upon our very door. All nations, wake up! Learn how to reform by studying Messiah’s Book!
Messiah taught that self-indulgence of any kind is sin; and “he who sins is slave to sin.” Furthermore, the person who understands this Truth, and adjusts his life accordingly, by winning The Victory, is no longer slave, but is free. The Truth has set him free. (He has recovered from the fall of man.) And he who attains this freedom is truly free, even from death. He (or she) will simply exit the physical body at the proper time, without experiencing that awful trauma we call death.
Not even execution by crucifixion (or some other gruesome torture) can change this, because the person who has obtained this Liberty does not experience the pain that selfish, evil men (in jealous rage) may attempt to inflict. Furthermore, a master soul who willingly endures such abuse (with forgiveness in his heart) has the power to self-resurrect – because he (or she) has become a fully mature child of God, and is therefore given full access to Divine Power.
The Lord advised the apostles that he would demonstrate this. Furthermore, most of them would soon follow him, by forgiving their ignorant, brutal murderers (and many other disciples would also follow this holy but difficult path).
Jesus (the Christ) revealed these simple hidden truths to multitudes. He explained these “secrets of the masters” to anyone (and to all) who were humble enough (and willing) to sit at his feet and listen. Many bowed their heads, sat at this carpenter’s son’s feet, and listened. Many were saved – set free by the Truth.
They sat near Messiah around campfires, and in synagogues, and they sat on grassy places and on floors in farmers’ and shepherds’ homes. Those who understood (and believed) followed him. They strove to overcome the carnal self – because they knew they had found the awesome “treasure hidden a field!” They listened. They followed. They were blessed; and those who persevered bought the precious field, and became free.
Scores of Jesus’ disciples accomplished what is necessary to buy the precious field of “buried treasure” – they won The Victory. They overcame all the passions and desires of the carnal self, and by winning this vital struggle, they traveled the return path to Eden! They experienced no poverty or sickness (or any other misery), for they had re-entered the Kingdom, from which we all were expelled (when the fall of man occurred – many ages ago).
These Victorious followers of the Lord taught others, and they, in turn, taught still others; and indeed, to this very day, new believers continue to learn The Way, and win The Victory (a few at a time). Thus, the mighty vine of Christ has been continuously growing for 20 centuries, and many people (all who are willing to listen) even now, become new disciples, and choose the straight and narrow path. They follow the Lord by overcoming the selfish self. They return to Eden!
During a period of time (the years between winning The Victory and the time of passing on) these victorious souls reside simultaneously in two domains – in the 4-dimensional world we all know, and in a peaceful, serene realm (of dimensions beyond) called Paradise. Jesus found this place of eternal peace and joy while yet a boy, and he spent the remainder of his earthly life teaching others to follow – as Messiah always does.
All triumphant followers of the Lord have entered the joyous realm. These blessed men and women do not experience poverty, accidents, disease or disasters (nor even death!). When earthly work is done, they easily and painlessly discard the human physical body (casting it off, like a worn out jacket).
Then, they continue residing in a serene and peaceful region of the great beyond, called Eden – The Garden of Paradise. This is a tranquil transition. There, peace and joy are magnified; and they go on, to learn greater lessons.
Souls who have returned to Eden no longer require their roots to be embedded in the soil of physicality.
They are able to obtain perpetual nourishment directly from the mystic energies of God.
Yet, God requires these holy ones to sometimes return to the physical realm, to
teach others (lost souls) to follow them. These are great prophets.
And, as an age commences, one is called Christ, the Messiah.
The life of Christ brings “Eternal Life,” which belongs to all who faithfully follow Messiah. And we follow him by following his example of love and forgiveness, and by following his advice to overcome the strong human tendency of self-indulgence. And when a holy one finally lives the life of Christ perfectly (from his first breath, til his last), he is called a Messiah, and he can conquer death – can self resurrect. Once this is accomplished, Immortality has been achieved. No more incarnations are required!
Here is a brief review of how Eternal Life leads to Immortality:
Those who have attained Eternal Life are given important, sacred duties. After a period of learning in the realm beyond, these victorious souls re-enter the physical world (by re-incarnating), and their assigned responsibilities include teaching others: guiding “lost souls” to the sacred walkway – the return path to Eden – the trail blazed by our Savior. These teachers are “the laborers in the field,” and there are always a few of them among us. (“The harvest is great, but the laborers are few.”)
These gifted teachers eventually pass on, yet they return to earthly life again, and again, always teaching; and this cyclical process continues for numerous incarnations, until each triumphant soul becomes a very skilled and proficient servant of the human race, and a superior teacher, and is recognized as a sage and master, and sometimes, as a prophet (or prophetess). For example, Jesus declared that Elijah (also known as Elias) reincarnated on Earth, and he was Messiah’s harbinger – called John the Baptist.
Finally, each master-soul goes on… to several incarnations of highly advanced learning – to eventually become a perfect teacher (with extensive access to divine power), like Jesus, and like Miriam.
Yes, this is true. Every child of God eventually becomes just like our Father, and attains access to all the powers of God – because God and Man are One (just as seedlings and cutting-sprouts are one with the parent-plant).
Jesus and Miriam are examples of what we – all – will eventually become!
When a Messiah comes to Earth, God (our Father) sends him to us, to demonstrate (to all who are willing to take notice) the oneness of God and Man. He sends a Messiah (a unified pair of fully mature souls) periodically – at the commencement of every age. An age consists of about 2,010 to 2,050 years. Thus, a new age is very near. This truly is “the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.”
Jesus explained to his disciples that both he and Miriam were (and still are) examples of everything all of us will eventually become, because they are our elder brother and sister, and they achieved perfection – showing us The Way. And this is how all men and women eventually become One with God (and this is the Christ – our destiny).
Furthermore, everyone who has succeeded, and is living the holy life (the life of Christ) eventually (after many blessed incarnations) incarnates into a world (selected by God, our Father), and becomes not only a Christ, but also Messiah – a public demonstration of Christ; and Messiah can demonstrate man’s ability to conquer death.
When this is accomplished, ”It is Finished.” A Perfect Man stands before God, and no more incarnations are required. Immortality is achieved.
Notice that there is a difference between Eternal Life and Immortality. After Eternal Life is achieved, Immortality becomes the goal.
Whenever a superior master-soul has reached the stage where he is prepared to become a Messiah, God (our Father) can always find a world for him (in unbounded space) that is due to receive Imannuel; and there, he (and she – his female complement) incarnate. Together, they live “the perfect life,” and achieve Immortality. (Every couple’s destiny!)
God selected this world (2,000 years ago) for Jesus and Miriam – two superior master-souls – spiritually bound together, as one.
This is the plan of Salvation! (Now revealed, during these times of Revelations – Reveal-ations.) And this revelation of our Father’s plan (described in the little book – the Aquarian Gospel) is indeed sweet as honey in the mouth, but bitter to digest – just as the book of Revelation describes.
By this awesome plan, all of God’s Children eventually attain immortality. What else can become of God’s offspring, other than to eventually attain full maturity, and become exactly like our Father (as Jesus did, and as Miriam did)? Full maturity, perfection and immortality are the goal of every one of our Father’s descendants – the destiny of every human being!
Even the most selfish, depraved and vicious criminals (convicted or not), after experiencing death, soon incarnate again, and gradually learn better ways. After many arduous and difficult incarnations (reaping what they have sown), they eventually learn to live virtuously and become blessed and holy, and follow the path of Christ, because God, our Father, never abandons a single one of His children (and He owns Eternity).
Each earthly life is brief, and is much like a day – in the long life of a human soul. And if we diligently make good use of our talents every “day,” we make steady progress on the souls’ long, arduous trek to perfection.
The life-story of Jesus and Miriam is a pattern and example, for us youthful souls to emulate. They are elders, who have attained full human maturity. And, to this day, they (and other mature souls) continually watch over us, guiding us (their younger brothers and sisters) to the ways of true human adulthood (the Way home, to God – our Father).
Furthermore, once in a great while, all people (who have achieved a certain level of soul-maturity) are invited to attend a magnificent, sacred school – an era of accelerated spiritual learning – in a heavenly, joyous environment, right here (in the earthly realm). The coming Age of Aquarius is that school; and Judgment Day will determine who can attend.
Jesus’ mission was to reveal these truths (and much more) to all who would listen.
He clearly stated:
“He who believes this Gospel of the Son of man shall never die.”
Through the Aquarian Gospel, the still, small voice has spoken – a mighty trumpet has sounded a mighty blast, silent.
Who have ears to hear, let them hear:
Judgment Day is truly Near.
It’s coming fast,
How soon is imminent? None of us can know. We must always do our best to be prepared. The unprepared will suffer the grief of banishment from Heaven (the Aquarian Age). How prepared must one be? Jesus advised: “To whom much has been given, much is required; and to whom a little has been given, a little only is required.” Each must do his best.
However, winning The Victory is extremely difficult, requiring extraordinary dedication and perseverance, and thus our Lord said, “take stock of yourself before you start to follow me….and don’t look back,…remember Lot’s wife.”
He also advised: "None can know the hour nor the day…keep watch at every season of the year,... let not your hearts be overcharged with sensuous things, nor with the cares of life, lest that day come and find you unprepared...and pray (each day) that you may meet the Lord with joy, and not with grief." (ch. 112 vs. 16, and ch. 157 vs. 38, 39)
(Part III of this review includes “signs” that Messiah’s return is near.)
