Според източниците, Levi H. Dowling работи дълго (40 години медитация, изучаване на етерните вибрации и др.), за да стигне до духовното съзнание, позволяващо му да разчита Акашовите записи и да може да опише пътя и събитията от живота на Исус. (Eva S. Dowling)
Даулинг няма претенции това да е "думата на Бога", нито иска да го представят като пратеник от Бог или пророк - той видял и казал за видяното, а читателя преценява сам за себе си.. (Swami Nirmalananda Giri)
Организацията Aquarian Gospel Society претендира, че публикуваната от тях онлайн цяла книга на Даулинг (Второто изданеие от 1911г.) строго съответства (символ по символ проверявана) на оригиналната книга, издадена през 1908г., като има възможност да се видят и сканирани страници във вид на изображение от оригинала.

6. The Aquarian Gospel for Yogis-Commentary by Abbot George Burke (Swami Nirmalananda Giri)
Jesus passes the third brotherhood test, and receives the third degree, FAITH.
THE Logos waited seven days, and then was taken to the Hall of Fame, a chamber rich in furnishings, and lighted up with gold and silver lamps.
2The colors of its ceilings, decorations, furnishings and walls were blue and gold.
3Its shelves were filled with books of master minds; the paintings and the statues were the works of highest art.
4And Jesus was entranced with all this elegance and these manifests of thought. He read the sacred books, and sought the meanings of the symbols and the hieroglyphs.
5And when he was absorbed in deepest thought, a priest approached and said,
6Behold the glory of this place! my brother you are highly blest. Few men of earth, so young, have reached such heights of fame.
7Now, if you do not waste your life in search for hidden things that men can never comprehend, you may be founder of a school of thought that will insure you endless fame;
8For your philosophy is deeper far than that of Plato, and your teachings please the common people more than those of Socrates.
9Why seek for mystic light within these antiquated dens? Go forth and walk with men, and think with men, and they will honor you.
10And, after all, these weird initiations may be myths, and your Messiah hopes but base illusions of the hour.
11I would advise you to renounce uncertain things and choose the course that leads to certain fame.
12And thus the priest, a demon in disguise, sung syren songs of unbelief; and Jesus meditated long and well on what he said.
13The conflict was a bitter one, for king Ambition is a sturdy foe to fight.
14For forty days the higher wrestled with the lower self, and then the fight was won.
15Faith rose triumphant; unbelief was not. Ambition covered up his face and fled away, and Jesus said,
16The wealth, the honor, and the fame of earth are but the baubles of an hour.
17When this short span of earthly life has all been measured out, man’s bursting baubles will be buried with his bones.
18Yea, what a man does for his selfish self will make no markings on the credit side of life.
19The good that men for other men shall do becomes a ladder strong on which the soul may climb to wealth, and power and fame of God’s own kind, that cannot pass away,
20Give me the poverty of men, the consciousness of duty done in love, the approbation of my God, and I will be content.
21And then he lifted up his eyes to heaven and said,
22My Father-God, I thank thee for this hour. I ask not for the glory of thyself; I fain would be a keeper of thy temple gates, and serve my brother man.
23Again was Jesus called to stand before the hierophant; again no word was said, but in his hands the master placed a scroll on which was written FAITH.
24And Jesus bowed his head in humble thanks; then went his way.
Jesus becomes a private pupil of the hierophant and is taught the mysteries of Egypt. In passing the seventh test, he works in the Chamber of the Dead.
THE senior course of study now was opened up and Jesus entered and became a pupil of the hierophant.
2He learned the secrets of the mystic lore of Egypt land; the mysteries of life and death and of the worlds beyond the circle of the sun.
3When he had finished all the studies of the senior course, he went into the Chamber of the Dead, that he might learn the ancient methods of preserving from decay the bodies of the dead; and here he wrought.
4And carriers brought the body of a widow’s only son to be embalmed; the weeping mother followed close; her grief was great.
5And Jesus said,
Good woman, dry your tears; you follow but an empty house; your son is in it not.
6You weep because your son is dead. Death is a cruel word; your son can never die.
7He had a task assigned to do in garb of flesh; he came; he did his work, and then he laid the flesh aside; he did not need it more.
8Beyond your human sight he has another work to do, and he will do it well, and then pass on to other tasks, and, by and by, he will attain the crown of perfect life.
9And what your son has done, and what he yet must do, we all must do.
10Now, if you harbor grief, and give your sorrows vent they will grow greater every day. They will absorb your very life until at last you will be naught but grief, wet down with bitter tears.
11Instead of helping him you grieve your son by your deep grief. He seeks your solace now as he has ever done; is glad when you are glad; is saddened when you grieve.
12Go bury deep your woes, and smile at grief, and lose yourself in helping others dry their tears.
13With duty done comes happiness and joy; and gladness cheers the hearts of those who have passed on.
14The weeping woman turned, and went her way to find a happiness in helpfulness; to bury deep her sorrows in a ministry of joy.
15Then other carriers came and brought the body of a mother to the Chamber of the Dead; and just one mourner followed; she a girl of tender years.
16And as the cortege neared the door, the child observed a wounded bird in sore distress; a cruel hunter’s dart had pierced its breast.
17And she left following the dead, and went to help the living bird.
18With tenderness and love she folded to her breast the wounded bird; then hurried to her place.
19And Jesus said to her,
Why did you leave your dead to save a wounded bird?
20The maiden said,
This lifeless body needs no help from me; but I can help while yet life is; my mother taught me this.
21My mother taught that grief and selfish love, and hopes and fears are but reflexes from the lower self;
22That what we sense are but small waves upon the rolling billows of a life.
23These all will pass away; they are unreal.
24Tears flow from hearts of flesh; the spirit never weeps; and I am longing for the day when I will walk in light, where tears are wiped away.
25My mother taught that all emotions are the sprays that rise from human loves, and hopes, and fears; that perfect bliss cannot be ours till we have conquered these.
26And in the presence of that child did Jesus bow his head in reverence. He said,
27For days and months and years I’ve sought to learn this highest truth that man can learn on earth, and here a child, fresh brought to earth, has told it all in one short breath.
28No wonder David said, O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
29Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength.
30And then he laid his hand upon the maiden’s head, and said,
I’m sure the blessings of my Father-God will rest upon you, child, forevermore.
