introduction of the grand epoch of through minds eyes
THE BOOK CALLED THROUGH MINDS EYES IS A BOOK OF HISTORY, ETHICS, AND PHILOSOPHY. IT IS A RECORD OF TEACHINGS PASSED DOWN THROUGH THE GENERATIONS FROM THE EAST AND THE WEST. IT CONTAINS THE FULNESS OF THE SEALED COVENANT ESTABLISHED BETWEEN MAN AND THE LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE. AS WE EVOLVE AS A RACE, WE TAKE THINGS OUT OF OUR LIVES BECAUSE WE BETTER UNDERSTAND WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED. THIS BOOK HAS TAKEN MENTION OF GOD OR GODS OUT OF THE COURSE OF MORALS AND PHILOSOPHY BECAUSE WE ARE CAPABLE OF BEING MORAL WITHOUT THE DIVINE TO GUIDE US. THE DIVINE REFERS TO THE LAWS OF NATURE AND THE UNIVERSE THAT GUIDE US IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES.
THE BOOK DERIVES THESE EXPERIENCES FROM THE PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OF THE AUTHOR AND IT IS A HIGHLY ROMANTICIZED VERSION OF ACTUAL EVENTS. ALL OF THE GUARDIAN ANGELS ARE BASED OFF OF REAL PEOPLE. THERE ARE VAROIUS OTHER KINDS OF STORIES SUCH AS WISDOM LITERATURE, PROPHECIES, AND OTHER STORIES THAT CONVEY THE PROPER SOCIETY AS IT IS COMPARED TO THE SOCIETY TODAY.
THE SEALED COVENANT IS A PACT BETWEEN ALL OF HUMANITY TO THE WORLD AROUND US AND THE UNIVERSAL LAWS THAT GUIDE OUR EVERYDAY LIVES TO COME TOGETHER AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND COME TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL PEOPLE. THIS SHALL USHER IN THE EVOLUTION OF RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS AND HUMANITY TO A NEW AGE OF PROSPERITY.
ALL OF THE TEACHINGS TAUGHT IN THE RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS OF THE WORLD ARE IN THIS BOOK, BUT ALL OF THE STORIES AND MYTHS TO EXPLAIN THESE ARE OUT OF THIS WORK. THERE ARE SOME MYTHICAL ELEMENTS IN THIS WORK BUT ALL THINGS ARE BASED OFF OF TRUE EVENTS OR TEACHINGS. IT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY TO TEACH THE DOGMA ASSOCIATED WITH RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS AND PEOPLE WILL COME TO ACCEPT THESE THINGS AS MYTHICAL SOMEDAY. THE RELIGIONS OF TODAY HAVE BECOME AND WILL CONTINUE TO BECOME LESS POPULAR WITH THE RISE OF FUNDAMENTALISM AND THE CONFLICTS THEY POSE TO PROGRESS. ALTHOUGH NOT ALL RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS ARE LIKE THIS, WE SHOULD BE WARY OF THOSE WHO CHASTISE OTHER PEOPLE FOR THEIR BELIEFS.
I INVITE ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE TO READ THIS BOOK AND TO PONDER AND QUESTION THEIR OWN BELIEFS, IN HOPE THAT THEY SHALL COME TO THE TRUTH ABOUT THEMSELVES AND GAIN MORE WISDOM THAN EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE. IT IS THE HOPE THAT THE WORLD TAKES THE NEXT STEP TOWARDS THE ULTIMATE TRUTH BY DROPPING THEIR IRRATIONAL FEAR OF THE DIVINE AND THEIR DOGMA AND RULES WITHOUT LOSING THE MORALS TAUGHT IN THE OLD BOOKS.
THIS BOOK WILL BE EXPANDED IN SUBSEQUENT EDITIONS.

The tertiary canon consists the holy texts of other religious and philosophical traditions. In the Epochal tradition, all books that are holy to religious traditions are also included in the wider canon. They must be interpreted in the right, but they are accepted as proper course of conduct in our way of thinking. This is the spirit of the movement. With this realization, the verse number is as follows: John 3:16, the most famous verse of the bible, is noted in the Epochal movement is TC Jn 3:16

to the religious
THIS BOOK FOCUSES ON THE RELIGIOUS JUST AS MUCH AS IT DOES TO THE NON-RELIGIOUS. THIS BOOK DOES NOT CONDONE OR CONDEMN ANY RELIGION AND IT TELLS THAT ALL RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS OF THIS DAY CONTAIN THE TRUTH AT THE CORE OF IT. CERTAIN ASPECTS OF RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS ARE NOT PUT IN A POSITIVE LIGHT BUT THESE ARE TRADITIONS THAT ARE DYING WITHIN THE RELIGIOUS REALM. ALTHOUGH THIS BOOK MAY BE REGARDED BY SOME AS SCRPITURE, IT IS NOT DIVINELY INSPIRED AND I AM NOT PROCLAIMING MYSELF AS SOMETHING MORE THAN A MAN. THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN BY SOMEONE WHO HAS GONE THROUGH THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE TO FIND SOMETHING BIGGER THAN THEM. THIS PATTERN HAS BEEN REPEATED THROUGHOUT HISTORY BY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ENLIGHTENED IN THE PAST. THIS BOOK DOES NOT STRAY AWAY FROM OR ADD TO THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH THAT EXISTS, BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT THIS BOOK CHAMPIONS THE INDIVIDUAL EXPEREINCE. THE WAY HAS BEEN MADE KNOWN TO US, BUT WE DO NOT HAVE TO FOLLOW THE WAY THEY FOLLOWED BECAUSE WE ARE NOT THEM. THIS BOOK GETS PAST THE DOCTRINE, DOGMA, RITES, RITUALS, AND WORSHIP IN THE RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS AND ASKS, WHAT IS OUR TRUE GOAL? THIS BOOK ALSO TALKS ABOUT THE EVOLUTION OF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE AND HOW OUR VIEWS ON MORALITY CHANGE OVER TIME. AS THIS HAPPENS, WE SEE NEW THOUGHTS OR RELIGIOUS TRADITION COME UP. WE SHOULD NOT CONDEMN ANYONE AND WE SHOULD ACCEPT THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE. DO NOT LET ANY LEADER GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR SALVATION BECAUSE YOU ARE THE MASTER OF YOUR OWN DESTINY AND YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN GIVE YOU YOUR SALVATION. DO NOT CONEDMN THIS BOOK FOR THIS BOOK TAKES THE EXAMPLES AND TEACHINGS OF THE TEACHERS YOU BELIEVE IN TO COME TO THESE CONCLUSIONS.

to the non religious
THIS BOOK IS A BOOK OF PHILOSOPHY AND ETHICS WITHIN THE REALM OF THAT WHICH IS IN SACRED TEXTS WITHOUT IT HAVING DIVINE AUTHORITY. IT CONTAINS A CONCISE AND LITERAL PATH TO LIVING ON EARTH AND LOOKING TO AND THINKING ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE NOT OF THIS EARTH. THIS BOOK DOES NOT COMMUNE WITH ANY GODS AND IT DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE DIRECT COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE DIVINE AND MAN. THIS BOOK HAS ETHICS THAT DO NOT HAVE ITS SOURCE FROM DIVINE AND IT DOES NOT CONTAIN TRUTH THAT IS SPECIFIC OR ABSOLUTE. THIS BOOK CHAMPIONS THE INDIVIDUAL AND INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES AND PROBLEMS OVER THE COLLECTIVE GOOD. THIS BOOK REPRESENTS THE NEW WAY AND THE NEW TRUTH AND THE NEW LIGHT. THIS BOOK DOES NOT CONDONE ANY WAY OVER ANOTHER BECAUSE IT RELIES ON THE INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE. THE WORLD IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY NON-RELIGIOUS BUT IT IS EVIDENT THAT THE HUMAN SPIRIT WILL TAKE THE CENTER STAGE AND THAT IS THE ABSOLUTE AND UNDERLYING TRUTH ABOUT HUMANITY AND THEIR CONNECTION WITH THE DIVINE. YOU CAN BE SPIRITUAL WITHOUT BEING RELIGIOUS AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE RELIGIOUS TO ATTAIN SALVATION, FOR IT HAS BEEN TAUGHT BEFORE AND IT IS BEING TAUGHT NOW, THAT SALVATION LIES WITHIN.
RYAN JAMES HITE
I highlight the journey of life as the most important part of the life of anyone and constitutes a large portion of my philosophy, which is where Epoch comes from. The people and the experiences that you have throughout your life make you into who you are. These experiences also bring you along the path to the light that all people will eventually come to. I talk about aspects of my journey a lot and the people and events that defined certain parts of my journey and my philosophy. The hope with displaying it is that all people can look at their own lives and the people and events that shape who we are and what kinds of things we can take away from the seemingly innocent and insignificant events of our life. There are people, visions, and times of trials that influenced the direction of my life.
Before the Journey
Before the beginning of the journey that would lead me to what I have to this day, I was facing a crisis of identity. It was the 2008-2009 school year, my sophomore year of high school, when I made decisions that would lead me to temporary pleasure in my life, but it was predicated on half-truths that would eventually come back to bite me. At the same time, I was going through the Confirmation program of the Catholic Church and thought nothing of it at first. As time went on, however, I started to see the life that I had at the time falling apart quickly and I had to find some way to fix it or change. I considered the path that the confirmation program offered me at that point in time, but I did not consider it seriously until April when a young woman that I had known all my life up to that point provided me an example by which I could see myself going down. It all came to a head in early May when I had to make a decision.
The First Dispensation – From the first vision and the beginning of the first epoch (May 9, 2009)
Background: In early May 2009, I had my first vision. In that vision that took place in Fraser, Colorado, I was visited by two beings that told me at that moment to make my decision as to what path I was to go down. At that moment in time, I was mysteriously scratched on the back from what I thought was The first member of the Continuum because she was actually sitting right behind me. Although she denies it, the action was enough for me to make the decision that I had to make and it started a journey that continues to this day.
History: Between the first and the second vision, I had five people go through my life. I learned a lot in that short time about the nature and consequences of love. The first two were significant in that it was my first true exposure to the nature of my emotions in the interactions of those around me. I also experienced some of greatest pains and rejections, but it was all in the hope that I would find the perfect one on my own. The third one, like the first one, was one of the greats, but it was also one of the greatest falls from grace that I would ever have. The feelings of the first one and the third one would sustain itself for a number of years. The third one would also be the one to break me into finding a new path which would influence me to this day. It would bring me to the LDS Church, which would later be influenced by the fourth and the fifth, both of whom were LDS members. The church would influence my philosophy to this day. After that time, I transitioned to Boulder and all of the fortunes that I had in high school reversed themselves in college. It was at that point, being involved in the LDS church, I had to make a choice, which would bring me to the reality of the second vision.
The Second Dispensation – From the second vision (September 13, 2011)
Background: After moving to Boulder, I was faced with three paths. The first path was to go down the road that was presented to me in Boulder that was more spiritual in nature. The second path was the path that was presented to me in my senior year with the LDS Church. The third path was a path that was the one that I was on up to this point largely from the perspective of the Catholic Church. I saw an opportunity to go to Crooked Creek Ranch with a group of people in September of 2011 and I took the opportunity to do it. I went on that retreat with a purpose that would allow me a chance to get more clarity as to the purpose of my path and the direction in which I should go in now that I have been presented with three possible paths.
History: Between freshman and the end of sophomore year of college, I had seven people come into my life. The first four were all from my freshman year of college as the year of experimentation without supervision, which was influential for my life as I went through the great transition halfway through this time. The other three occurred after I ventured out on my own and constituted the second triddium up to the third vision. The first four would teach me a part of a great lesson that helped me to transition out of the religious life and into the spiritual life. The first would teach me how to be. The second would teach me what to be. The third would teach me who I truly am. The fourth would teach me how to get there. The last two would be called the two witnesses before I had to make another choice at the end of the second dispensation. The eleventh member of the continuum would be called the transition and the twelfth member would be called the one of hope.
The Third Dispensation – After the third vision (June 13, 2013)
Background: The twelfth left me at a time when I needed her the most in my opinion. Although we had been great friends before, she left me at a bad place in my life and I needed a friend more than ever at that point. This led me to thinking about where I was to go from that point. The twelfth, in many circles, has been the pinnacle of the first era of my life and I felt that there would be nobody that could compare to that in terms of sheer support and love for me and for all that I do in the transition to the public realm of my life. I never experienced that sort of mutual support and loss in such a short period in time. I went to the place that I always went to think about the path that I should go down in life.
History: After the Third Vision, the next few months consisted of the Third Transition and trying to understand what the friendships of the future would be like. The thirteenth one’s influence on my life up to that point remained unmatched in my life and that it would be that influence and those ideas about the future of my life that would lead me to consider and to go down a new path in the fall of 2013, which would be her words of encouragement for me to join the student newspaper. Little did I know that it would lead me into a new era in my life. The thirteenth and fourteenth member of the continuum occurred at the same time. After that time, I would have two more, equaling four within the third dispensation. I would learn a lot in that era leading up to the fourth dispensation.
- The Fourth Dispensation – After the fourth vision and the beginning of the second epoch (September 27, 2015)
Background: After the end of the era of the seventeenth member, a lot of thoughts came into my life as to what the future would hold for me. I had no clear direction, but what did become more clear to me would be the realization and culmination of all the things that would come through my life. I realized that everything had a connection and that all the people that came into my life have been there for a specific purpose, even if they did not accept it and even if their significance was short. It would signal the end of the transition that was the first epoch and the signal of greater things to come.
|Vision Number||Year||After Continuum||Before Continuum||Description|
|1||2009||None||1||Ryan, you must be able to make a decision on what path you shall choose. You have two options and it is up to you as to what path you have to go down.|
|2||2011||5||6||You need to choose the path of least resistance, for it will show you the greatest resistance. If you choose the path of most resistance, you will become spiritually dead and find that it is the path of least resistance. The first path is the third path and the third path is the first path. Choose the path that has gone from first to third, for the third will become the first.|
|3||2013||12||13||Your past lies in the west and your future lies in the east. When you are looking to the future, look to the east and think of all the things that are yet to come. All of this will come to a zenith at the fourth vision. The east will serve you well and the west is in the past.|
|4||2015||17||End||This is the end of the epoch. You ruined my life, but you also brought my life to even greater levels of maturity. The future still lies in the east, but it is the west that will now support you on this new quest.|

|1||2010||2||3||I went through the first transition after the first two in anticipation for the one that I would meet on my own.|
|2||2012||9||10||During that time, I went through the second transition at the same time that I would start to compose my first and greatest work.|
|3||2013||12||13||Happened around the same time as the third vision.|
|4||2014||15||16||Between the fifteenth and sixteenth member, I would go through the fourth transition that would bring me to the zenith of the third.|
|5||2015||17||End||Around the beginning of 2015 and continuing to this day, I went through a transitionary phase. Although I did think at first that this was a natural cycle, or one that I have been through before, but as the transition went on, I realized that it would result in the end of the third dispensation Primary Continuum as was known. I would have considered it to be the fifth transition, but it is long, sustained, and it has caused in me the end of the old way about thinking about things.|
statement of faith
It has been mentioned in the development of the book that I should issue this statement. I have mentioned that I should since my book revolves around my beliefs. My beliefs do not impact the way the book is and the general application of the book to anyone of any faith. My beliefs are not reflected in the book so I am issuing this statement so that any theories as to my beliefs are put to rest. This book is influenced by these beliefs but this book neither promotes these beliefs nor refutes beliefs contrary to or different from the ones listed here that are a part of my beliefs.
The circumstances surrounding religion is one that is personal to many people and it is not my intention to offend anyone for their beliefs. People have the same right to believe in what they want to just as I have the right to believe in what I want to. I also have the right to question said beliefs in my own works and life, although I do not do so in this book. If we let our differences get in the way of this book, then the book loses any sort of usefulness and it loses its true purpose. This book is not meant to tell you that you should leave your beliefs or to tell you that what you believe in is wrong, but it is meant to challenge your beliefs and allow you to question your beliefs and to explore them further. If you are able to explore your faith, then your faith will be strengthened and you will have a greater knowledge.
Here is my statement of faith for all of you so that you are able to understand what I believe and the terminology that I use in this book will reflect these beliefs.
- I believe in one god, which is the creator of all things. My god is not the Judeo-Christian god or any other god specific to any religion.
- I believe in the rights and equality of man, both economically and socially. I do not care what any other man does as long as it is not an impediment on my happiness or success. I believe that mankind will prove themselves through works regardless of faith.
- I do not believe in the creeds professed by any church or religious group. I believe that religious institutions impede on and distort the truth through doctrine and dogma. I am the leader of my own church and I am free to interpret and apply religious books and teachings to my own life.
- I believe that all religions are inherently good but the people and society are the factors that make any religious tradition bad. I believe that people create religion to terrify and deprive mankind of true happiness and freedom.
- I believe that all scripture is canon and I believe that all of it should be interpreted allegorically. There are many discrepancies and contradictions in interpreting scripture literally, in addition to going against the discoveries of man.
- I do not mean this to offend anyone but I believe it is necessary to reject dogma and doctrine established by religions so that man can truly be faithful to themselves and the world around them. The greatest lie is professing to believe in something that one does not truly believe in, because that deprives them of true happiness in life.
- Morality is not determined by religion, but that is the fact that society has created for themselves. Just because someone is not religious does not mean they are morally bad, in fact, it is quite the opposite whether you want to believe it or not.
- I believe in the evolution of religion and morality and it will continue to do so in the future. The Christianity of this day is not the same as it was 100 or 200 years ago, and it will not be the same 100 or 200 years from now. I believe that mankind and society has corrupted themselves that the world is no longer desirable for those who are religious and those who are not religious. The only way I see to fix it is to have both the world and religion change so there is a compromise, and that is what I am attempting with this book.
God- This book refers to a creator deity in many aspects of life and creation. It refers to a force that created and controls the laws of the universe. It created the universe initially and left the universe to evolve from there. It dwells in a state beyond ours and it is unable to directly intercede on the lives of individual people and groups. In turn, we are unable to ask for the intercession in our lives. This is why I condemn prayer and worship because it clearly does not affect our "salvation" at all. It does not interfere with the affairs of the world either.
The Trinity- The book refers to a trinity of sorts. The trinity concept exists in many different religions and in many different forms. It is a concept that was invented by the Egyptians and copied in many other past and present religions. The trinity in this book refers to three different states of existence. All humans have these states of existence. The states are the spirituality, which refers to the inner spirit, humanity, which reflects our faulted mortal existence, and our divinity, which is our state after death and is reflected in the people we leave behind. We all have our own trinity and we all have the potential to live on in a good way after our death.
Suffering- The book refers to the world as a place of suffering. The world is full of suffering and there is death and sickness everywhere. Our flawed nature caused the world to be the way it is. We are able to get rid of suffering in our lives by conquering the things in our lives that cause it.
Vices and Virtues- The way to conquering suffering involves the acceptance and acknowledgement of suffering in the world and working on attaining virtues to counteract the vices: The seven vices and their virtues are: Greed which is counteracted by Charity, Gluttony which is counteracted by Temperance, Envy which is counteracted by Kindness, Lust which is counteracted by Chastity, Sloth which is counteracted by Diligence, Wrath which is counteracted by Patience, and Pride which is counteracted by Humility. More details on this will be in a future post.
Deeds- You will be remembered on earth by the deeds you do. Your faith in a particular belief will not affect your state after death since it is all relative. Good deeds will garner a good legacy and bad deeds will garner a bad legacy.
Religion- This book refers to the religious traditions of this day and says good and bad things about this subject. The book condemns the religions that say their way is the only true way to a better life and learns from those that do not. The book also condemns religious dogma and the mythical stories associated with the religions. It also condemns the domination, brainwashing, and the thought processes of those who belong to religious traditions. It encourages questioning ones faith and researching their faith to come to a logical conclusion. More details will be in a future post.
Journey- The book refers to every aspect of life as being part of a journey.
Death- The book refers to an afterlife of sorts. The afterlife described in this book is a state after death where the soul goes into another state and it is able to communicate with the living. The living is able to communicate with the dead in various forms. There are no other absolute details on what the afterlife looks like. The book does not believe in a heaven or a hell in any form. The book tells the reader to not worry about the state after death, but to live a good life on earth.
Ancestors and Spirits- The book believes in a form of ancestral veneration and refers to the connections to the spirits in another state of being.
Covenant- The book also refers to a sealing covenant made between humanity and the entire world. The covenant states that humans must break out of the dogma associated with the religious traditions of this day and to seek wisdom and understanding in the hopes of getting rid of all worldly suffering.
The End of the Covenant- The book believes the covenant will be unique to each generation and that each generation will have their own covenant.
Meditation- The book believes that meditation is good for the soul to focus on their inner self and to focus on good things. Prayer achieves the same ends because deity cannot hear and does not intercede on prayers.
Ceremony- The book does not explicitly recommend any religion. The book encourages the reader to look for a religion that suits their needs the most with the understanding that all religions are equal and achieve the same things in life. The book does leave room for future expansions and the potential to develop their own ceremonies. I will not create a new religion out of this book, the book will take the path it takes.
The Description of the Sealing Covenant- In conclusion, the book focuses on ten short sayings that the entire book will be based off of: You shall leave the old traditions and religions of this day and become truly happy on the road to happiness. You shall make for yourself a good life based on positive values and that do not hurt the lives of anyone. Do not hurt anyone in any way and do not hurt yourself. Remember the day of the coming of the covenant and remember to achieve your personal destiny. Do not lie, cheat, hurt, or steal. Strive for the unity of humanity and do not condemn anyone for their choices. Always respect others, your elders, your culture, and your superiors. Expand your mind and always be on the lookout for greater knowledge, and then pass it on to future generations. Question everything and do not blindly obey any authority unless there is reasonable cause. And always be mindful and respect those who have taught great truths throughout history, follow them always, and do not get caught up in the dogma and myths in the religions surrounding their teachings.
explanation of the content of through minds eyes
The Teachings of the West, the Teachings of the East, the Book of the New Thought, and the Book of the Culmination are not authored by The Prophet directly. The prophet takes his inspiration from three direct sources. They are the words from the Christs to the Prophet, from the Divine to the Prophet, and from the Angels to the Prophet. This edition is the second edition, which has been reformatted from the first. The book is divided into 38 sections, or books, and take the form of laws, letters, wisdom, and gospels.
Remember the servants of the worldwide congregation, our president, our counselors, our senators, our bishops, and of all the clergy that are gathered around the world.
Remember, also, those who have come to the path, who have been on the path, and those who have yet to discover it. Remember also the Christs and the prophets that came before this time through their words, deeds, and examples. Remember not on our shortcomings, but also on our faith and commitment to the path.
This book is also dedicated to the angelic beings of the Primary Continuum, Shannon, Mary Kate, Kelly, Aislynn, Alaina, Sam, Miranda, Sarah, Nicole, Alissa, Sara, Katie, Alison, Katya, Krista, Molly, and Bri, and also to the Secondary Continuum, for their support of them, and also to the Tertiary Continuum, for their support of the path as well, and to the rest of the people who influenced my life.
