Read Aquarian Gospel 129 here.

Transfiguration. It is one of those unique stories that some have alluded to, almost like Clark Kent changing into Superman. But then that removes the mystical aspect. For it is a transformation.

Perhaps there is more for us to uncover than simply changing clothes.

What if it was more akin to when the Incredible Hulk becomes Bruce Banner. When the ego run rampant, that which separates us from the Holy Mystery is stripped away to truly live into our vocational calling of brilliance. For, the Hulk was the protector. In life coaching, we coin the term saboteur or gremlin. That which allows us to survive in life, but holds us back from truly thriving. It is once we have released the monster truly from our being, and lived into our true self that we are at peace, content, whole in Holy Love…

Transfigured.

Like Brother Jesus:

  1. And as he prayed a brilliant light appeared; his form became as radiant as a precious stone;
    13. His face shone like the sun; his garments seemed as white as snow; the son of man became the son of God.
    14. He was transfigured that the men of earth might see the possibilities of man.

-129:12-14

Peter, James and John play the role of showing what has allowed survival…but the next step into thriving they show letting go of the past in the manifestations of Moses and Elijah to live into the Cosmic Christ.

First acknowledge and give voice to that holding you back.

Draw it out.

Prepare your self for release.

Thank the Gremlin for allowing you to survive up until now, while acknowledging it is time to move forward in your new life.

Destroy/discard the image when truly ready to step out of the past, this is the monument left on the mountain.

  1. The veil that separates the worlds is but an ether veil. For those who purify their hearts by faith the veil is rolled aside, and they can see and know that death is an illusive thing.

                        –129:19

For the old must die, for the new to be born, like a fire releasing the seed of life within the pine cone.

  1. And all symbolic of the path that every man must tread; symbolic of the way the sons of men become the sons of God.

                        –129:24

The symbolism of release, the stepping into your new reality connecting with the Cosmic Christ-Holy Mystery within. Letting your love light shine brightly within your own transfiguration. Each moment of each day.

The question is, are you willing to leave the gremlins on the mountain top and descend with the Holy Mystery into true life?


One of the beauties of the Aquarian Gospel is the imagining of Brother Jesus’ missing years not touched upon within the Christian Testament’s canonical gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).  It is a journey in the early chapters that take an adolescent (think 18-30-year-old) on a journey of self-discovery into the interior castle. A journey of connecting with elders, shamans, magi, and yogi of the world before he would settle back into sharing his teaching and life within the heart of Empire to be transformed.

These are the foreign masters he charges in chapter 123 that Brother Jesus’ charges to go out and be apostles to the world.

  1. So he has called you from the seven centres of the world, and he has breathed the breath of wisdom and of power into your souls, and now he sends you forth as bearers of the light of life, apostles of the human race.
    7.Go on your way, and as you go proclaim the gospel of the Christ.
    8. And then he breathed upon the masters and he said, Receive the Holy Breath; and then he gave to each the Word of power.
    9. And each went on his way, and every land was blest.

-Aquarian Gospel 123:6-9

Showing the true universalism of the message and the medium. The barriers and walls created were of the world’s principalities and powers. They had nothing to do with the ancient and eternal wisdom that the Cosmic Christ transferred through.  It also allows for a simple digression on defining terms of offices with spiritual Christian traditions:

  • Prophets- these are not about future occurrences, prophets was a way of diving into the community with what appeared as radical teaching, but truly was about getting the community back into alignment with the soul/heart of the Holy Mystery.
  • Pastor/Preacher- the one in an already established community gifted to care for that community, and aid each member in growing within their own spiritual gifts.
  • Teachers- yes traditionally preachers and teachers are linked, but let’s be honest they are a different skill set.
  • Finally, what is the speciality of this calling? It is those entering into the unknown, truly living there lives of words and actions us of the Cosmic/Holy Love to begin breaking ground on the new community. This was the charge given to the foreign masters to go out into the world and the charge given to Brother Jesus’ interior circle within their own communities.

Then we enter a curious story of human moments and pride if you will:

  1. Then Jesus went alone across the hills of Galilee and after certain days he reached the coast of Tyre, and in the home of Rachel he abode.
    11.He did not advertise his coming for he did not come to teach; he would commune with God where he could see the waters of the Mighty Sea.
    12. But Rachel told the news and multitudes of people thronged her home to see the Lord.
    13. A Grecian woman of Phenecia came; her daughter was obsessed. She said,
    14. O Lord, have mercy on my home! My daughter is obsessed; but this I know, if you will speak the Word she will be free. Thou son of David, hear my prayer!
    15. But Rachel said, Good woman, trouble not the Lord. He did not come to Tyre to heal; he came to talk with God beside the sea.
    16. And Jesus said, Lo, I was sent not to the Greek, nor to Syro-phenicians; I come just to my people, Israel.
    17. And then the woman fell down at his feet and said, Lord, Jesus, I implore that you will save my child.
    18. And Jesus said, You know the common proverb well: It is not meet that one should give the children’s bread to dogs.
    19. And then the woman said, Yea, Jesus, this I know, but dogs may eat the crumbs that fall down from their master’s board.
    20. And Jesus said, Such faith I have not seen, no, not among the Jews; she is not serf, nor dog.
    21. And then he said to her, According to your faith so let it be.
    22. The woman went her way and when she came unto her child, lo, she was healed

-Aquarian Gospel 123:10-22

At first blush, Jesus is a jack ass. Not even just a jerk, but could be a fundamentalist racial purist which goes against everything his life journey and teaching had brought up to this point. Yet, within the story the mother stands her ground and argues point to point to bring Jesus’ around to healing her daughter, and seeing her as worthy of his mission same as the Israelites.

So, what do we do with this?

Was Jesus really this much of a jerk? Was he an Israeli-supremacist in his mission? Or look to the setting where he is with a friend, and many are coming around, and he saw this as once more a time to challenge outdated and wrong-dated belief systems (B.S.) of the Empire crafter religious oppression?

For it becomes a living parable of the role a religious man was expected to play, yet in a truly Socratic method of teaching and living drama, a change happens that shows the interconnectedness of humanity, the equality of genders and the justice of a just society.

For the mother is the apostle to the gathered, and Brother Jesus plays here straight man to allow the teaching to unfold with the most power.

It goes deeper for it shows that any question can be called out. Any leader can and should be challenged, questioned for it is in the questioning that learning and transformation happen. Taken one step more though it shows that the labels were nothing more than imposed to create an us and them dynamic that was false.

So, take this passage. Take pen to paper, write the parable within specifically from the perspective of Rachel.

What does Rachel reveal about your inner observer?

Within this revelation what labels need to be eliminated from your journey for a true new community to grow?

Are you ready to step out of the realm of the labels?

Are you ready for your call to being an apostle of change?


The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus Christ is a new age text that reimagines the Jesus narrative as a universal spiritual journey that ties together eternal truths. It is not a reimagining in false, but touches into intuitive pieces of the story, mystery pieces that gnostic/mystic writers have been answering in “non-canonical” writings for centuries.

It is a story of living into and out of the love of the Holy Mystery. It is the story of how this attunement removes the ego of individualism that destroys self. The journey from birth to death…the reasons behind the assassination of the peasant labourer become travelling mystic rabbi can be found in the Sermon on the Mount/Plains.  This is a journey reflection for the sojourner on these passages as channeled by Levi H. Dowling (1920) in his work:

Prayer is the deep communion of the soul with God;

-Aquarian Gospel 94:2

Meister Eckhart said if the only prayer you said was thank you that would be sufficient. It is true, for it is in these moments of deep oneness that words become irrelevant, for we empty ourselves of the ego that allows for injustice to reign.

Deception is hypocrisy, and you shall not assume to be what you are not.

-Aquarian Gospel 94:18

Yet it is Ignatius of Loyola that gifted us with the Lectio Divina the sacred reading of hearing the sacred words three times to see what the Holy was saying to us.

This is a bit more than hearing of three times, for it is taking time to become contemplative, to enter the story. To rest within that which gave us life, and learn what it means to live out of and through that love.

Take a moment to reflect on the continuing Sermon on the Mount in

Chapter 95:

The Sermon on the Mount, continued. Jesus pronounces the eight beatitudes and the eight woes. Speaks words of encouragement. Emphasises the exalted character of the apostolic work.

1. And Jesus and the twelve went to the mountain top, and Jesus said,
2. Twelve pillars of the church, apostles of the Christ; light-bearers of the sun of life and ministers of God to men:
3. In just a little while you must go forth alone, and preach the gospel of the king, first to the Jews and then to all the world.
4. And you shall go, not with a scourge of cords to drive; you cannot drive men to the king;
5. But you shall go in love and helpfulness and lead the way to right and light.
6. Go forth and say, The kingdom is at hand.
7. Worthy are the strong in spirit; theirs the kingdom is.
8. Worthy are the meek; they shall possess the land.
9. Worthy they who hunger and thirst for right; they shall be satisfied.
10. Worthy are the merciful; and mercy shall be shown to them.
11. Worthy they who gain the mastery of self; they have the key of power.
12. Worthy are the pure in heart; and they shall see the king.
13. Worthy they who are maligned and wronged because they do the right; their persecutors they shall bless.
14. Worthy is the trustful child of faith; he shall sit in the throne of power.
15. Be not discouraged when the world shall persecute and call you curst; but rather be exceeding glad.
16. The prophets and the seers, and all the good of earth, have been maligned.
17. If you are worthy of the crown of life you will be slandered, vilified and curst on earth.
18. Rejoice when evil men shall drive you from their ways and cause your name to be a hiss and by-word in the street.
19. I say, rejoice; but deal in mercy with the doers of the wrong; they are but children at their play; they know not what they do.
20. Rejoice not over fallen foes. As you help men rise from the depth of sin, so God will help you on to greater heights.
21. Woe to the rich is gold and lands; they have temptations multiforms.
22. Woe unto men who walk at will in pleasure’s paths; their ways are full of snares and dangerous pits.
23. Woe to the proud; they stand upon a precipice; destruction waits for them.
24. Woe to the man of greed; for what he has is not his own; and lo, another comes; wealth is gone.
25. Woe to the hypocrite; his form is fair to look upon; his heart is filled with carcasses and dead men’s bones.
26. Woe to the cruel and relentless man; he is himself the victim of his deeds.
27. The evil he would do to other men rebounds; the scourger is the scourged.
28. Woe to the libertine who preys upon the virtues of the weak. The hour comes when he will be the weak, the victim of a libertine of greater power.
29. Woe unto you when all the world shall speak in praise of you. The world speaks not in praise of men who live within the Holy Breath; It speaks in praise of prophets false, and of illusions base.
30. You men who walk in Holy Breath are salt, the salt of earth; but if you lose your virtue you are salt in name alone, worth nothing more than dust.
31. And you are light; are called to light the world.
32. A city on a hill cannot be hid; its lights are seen afar; and while you stand upon the hills of life men see your light and imitate your works and honour God.
33. Men do not light a lamp and hide it in a cask; they put it on a stand that it may light the house.
34. You are the lamps of God; must not stand in the shade of earth illusions, but in the open, high upon the stand.
35. I am not come to nullify the law, nor to destroy; but to fulfil.
36. The Law, the Prophets and the Psalms were written in the wisdom of the Holy breath and cannot fail.
37. The heavens and earth that are will change and pass away; the word of God is sure; it cannot pass until it shall accomplish that where unto it hath been sent.
38. Whoever disregards the law of God and teaches men to do the same, becomes a debtor unto God and cannot see his face until he has returned and paid his debt by sacrifice of life.
39. But he who hearkens unto God and keeps his law and does his will on earth, shall rule with Christ.
40. The scribes and Pharisees regard the letter of the law; they cannot comprehend the spirit of the law;
41. And if your righteousness does not exceed the righteousness of scribe and Pharisee you cannot come into the kingdom of the soul.
42. It is not what man does that gives him right to enter through the gates; his pass word is his character and desire is his character.
43. The letter of the law deals with the acts of man; the spirit of the law takes note of his desires.

Which 3-5 verses resonate with your soul this day? Take those 3-5 verses as your Lection Divina contemplation today.

Rest comfortably into your chair, slowly begin a rhythmic deep breathing. Slowly feeling your surroundings slip away. Replaced by the sounds of the gathering on the mount. Sounds of children playing, animals bleating, dust blowing. Feel the grass and sand. The strong baritone voice of the rabbi you have come to hear, that others are talking of, resonates throughout the gathering of multitudes.

Upon your first reading of the verses. Sit with them. What words stick with you. Take that phrase or word and spend time with it.

Slowly enter the second reading with that word still there, what image leaps from the page? Spend time with this image?  How does this image tie to the word/phrase that came before?

Prepare your heart for the finally hearing. The word/image have set the stage. In this third hearing, what walls have broken down? Pieces of ego removed? The words of the sermon on the mount so shook society…how has it shook you? What step of faith are you going to take to live out this teaching: Today? This week? This Month?

 The seventh is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God; remember it and keep it wholly set apart for works of holiness; that is, for works not for the selfish self, but for the universal self.
 Men may do work for self upon the six days of the week; but on the Sabbath of the Lord they must do naught for self.
This day is consecrated unto God; but man serves God by serving man.

-Aquarian Gospel 96:25-27
