The Descent of Mankind, the Birth of Christ, Mankind made Perfect.
from the Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ
"When all the essences of carnal things have been transmuted into soul, and all the essences of soul have been returned to Holy Breath, and man is made a perfect God, the drama of Creation will conclude."

All things are thought; all life is thought activity. The multitude of beings are but phases of the one great thought made manifest. Lo, God is Thought, and Thought is God.
Eternal Thought is one; in essence it is two–Intelligence and Force; and when they breathe a child is born; this child is Love.
And thus the Triune God stands forth, whom men call Father-Mother-Child.
This Triune God is one; but like the one of light, in essence he is seven.
And when the Triune God breathes forth, lo, seven Spirits stand before his face; these are creative attributes.
Men call them lesser gods, and in their image they made man.
Man was a thought of God, formed in the image of the Septonate, clothed in the substances of soul. And his desires were strong; he sought to manifest on every plane of life, and for himself he made a body of the ethers of the earthly forms, and so descended to the plane of earth.
In this descent he lost his birthright; lost his harmony with God, and made discordant all the notes of life.
Inharmony and evil are the same; so evil is the handiwork of man.
Seeds do not germinate in light; they do not grow until they find the soil, and hide themselves away from light.
Man was evolved a seed of everlasting life; but in the ethers of the Triune God the light was far too great for seeds to grow;
And so man sought the soil of carnal life, and in the darksomeness of earth he found a place where he could germinate and grow.
The seed has taken root and grown full well.
The tree of human life is rising from the soil of earthy things, and, under natural law, is reaching up to perfect form.
There are no supernatural acts of God to lift a man from carnal life to spirit blessedness; he grows as grows the plant, and in due time is perfected.
The quality of soul that makes it possible for man to rise to spirit life is purity.
The soul is drawn to perfect light by four white steeds, and these are Will, and Faith, and Helpfulness and Love.
That which one wills to do, he has the power to do.
A knowledge of that power is faith; and when faith moves, the soul begins its flight.
A selfish faith leads not to light. There is no lonely pilgrim on the way to light. Men only gain the heights by helping others gain the heights. The steed that leads the way to spirit life is Love; is pure unselfish Love.
The universal Love of which is spoken is child of Wisdom and of Will divine, and God has sent it forth to earth in flesh that man may know.
The universal Love of which the sages speak is Christ.
The greatest mystery of all times lies in the way that Christ lives in the heart.
Christ cannot live in clammy dens of carnal things. The seven battles must be fought, the seven victories won before the carnal things, like fear, and self, emotions and desire, are put away.
When this is done the Christ will take possession of the soul; the work is done, and man and God are one.
A perfect man! To bring before the Triune God a being such as this was nature made.
This consummation is the highest revelation of the mystery of life.
When all the essences of carnal things have been transmuted into soul, and all the essences of soul have been returned to Holy Breath, and man is made a perfect God, the drama of Creation will conclude. And this is all.
