Not infallible is this book, but to teach people to hear the Creator's voice and to see the heavens in full consciousness, while still living on the earth and to know what awaits them after death.
In the late 1800's mystics from around the world brought forth enlightened perspectives and sacred texts that have set the path for our modern mystical traditions, including the Theosophical Society, the Spiritualists movement, Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy, Christian Science and the Unity Church to name a few. OAHSPE was also written in the late 1800's, and it shares many of the same perspectives.
EOIH'S VOICE IN THE WIND illuminates the teachings of OAHSPE and the deeper meaning inherent in the original writings.
It teaches us how to develop our higher consciousness, how to understand our interrelationship with the spiritual dimensions, how to deepen our relationship to the Creator and it explains the many phases of our journey into life after death.
EOIN'S VOICE IN THE WIND presents universal wisdom that transcends contemporary perspectives, and it speaks of multidimensional realities co-existing with life on earth through an interactive hierarchy of angelic beings.

Describing the Eras of Mankind's Evolution
The first section of the original Oahspe Bible is titled Oahspe. It is an overview of the eras of Man's evolution from the creation of Man to the present day. It begins with the creation of Man and continues through six eras to the seventh era of the present day, which is called the "Age of Kosmon." This history of Man is a rich and varied account of the evolution of consciousness through the cycles of light and dark that all planets such as our earth experience.
The appearance of Man on earth occurred approximately seventy-two thousand years ago. The sinking of the continent of Pan, which caused the great flood, occurred approximately twenty-four thousand years ago. Approximately nine thousand years ago, the first religion that anchored spiritual wisdom permanently on earth was given to Man.
Man: 72,000 years ago
The Great Flood: 24,000 years ago
The Great Prophets: Zarathustra of Persia about 9,000 years ago, Abraham, Brahma, Eawatah and Po about 6,000 years ago, Moses Capilya and Chine about 3,000 years ago. Ka-Yu (Confucius) and Sakaya (Buddha) about 2,500 years ago and Joshu about 2,000 years ago.
The First Era
In the First Era, Man was created and they were created differently from the animal kingdom:
That you will know you are the work of My hand, I have given you capacity for knowledge, power, and dominion.
When the earth had reached a state of evolution in which all the elements were in place to create and sustain Man, the Creator "drove" the elements together in order to create Man. Throughout this book there are references to vortexia, they explain how the power of a vortex is used to drive elements together to create celestial bodies and different forms of matter. It was the power of vortexia that was used to drive the elements together to form the earth and all life, including Man. Esoteric physiology maintains the existence of a vortexian field around every person and all forms of matter.
The Second Era
In the Second Era, Man was lacking in intelligence. Man could not take care of themselves. The Creator called for volunteers from the angelic beings of other worlds to come and help uplift Man:
But Man was helpless; he understood not the voice of the Almighty; neither did he stand upright. And Creator called His angels, who were older than the earth, and He said to them: Go and raise Man upright and teach him to understand.
Where did we come from? Science is still seeking the answer to explain how we evolved from the animal kingdom.
The Creator called out to a multitude of angels, who were once mortals on other worlds like the earth, and invited them to come and help with the beginnings of this world. The angels who came were those whose previous mortal lives had been cut short and lacked the wisdom of a mortal life. It was an opportunity for them to experience the feelings and challenges of being mortal. These angels cohabitated with Man and created a new race of immortal beings.
More of this event is explained in the Book of Jehovih, Chapter VI, and the Book of Inspiration, Chapter VI.
The Third Era
During the Third Era, Man was taught by the angels to live together in towns and cities:
Creator said to the angels that were with Man: Behold, Man has multiplied on the earth. Bring them together and teach them to dwell in cities and nations.
As Man developed and organized, his sense of self increased. Man's consciousness had developed enough to become selfish. He began to separate himself and desire things for himself. This change brought on the fourth era.
The Fourth Era
During the Fourth Era, conditions changed, and mankind began to listen to the "beast," which refers to the small, self-centered, greedy part of Man. Mankind began to fear, hate, and destroy each other. Because of their lack of knowledge, the selfish part of Man rose up and took control:
And in that same time the Beast rose up before Man, and spoke to him saying: Possess whatever you want, for all things are yours and are good for you. And Man obeyed the Beast, and war came into the world. This was the fourth era.
The Fifth Era
In the Fifth Era, mankind realized that the beast had tricked him and he began to reach out to find peace, but it was not to be found:
But the beast said: Think not I am come to send peace on the earth; I come not to send peace, but a sword. I come to set man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother. Whatever you find to eat, be it fish or flesh, eat it, taking no thought of tomorrow.
Mankind became carnivorous and lost the ability to hear the Creator's voice, because his being had become dense and unreceptive like there was a stone lying upon his soul. Man could no longer hear the Creator nor believe in Him. And that was the fifth era.
The following is not a statement against the wisdom held within religions.
It is an indictment against religious organizations for going against their original doctrines, which commanded them not to kill, to treat their neighbor as themselves, and to live lives of kindness and compassion.
And then mankind divided itself into four main divisions called the heads of the Beast. They were the major religions of that time:
And the names of the heads of the Beast were Brahmin, Buddhist, Christian, and Mohammedan.
And they divided the earth, and apportioned it between themselves, choosing soldiers and standing armies for the maintenance of their earthly aggrandizement.
The Sixth Era
In the Sixth Era, mankind descended into the darkness of war and selfishness and fear:
And Man, in service of the Beast, gave one-sixth of his life and his labor to war and standing armies; and one-third of his life he gave to dissipation and drunkenness. This was the sixth era.
This was a big turning point for Man, and for the angels who were helping with Man's evolution. The four major religions that had been brought to the earth to uplift Man had turned their backs on the original teachings from the Creator. They chose power and destruction instead of peace and prosperity for everyone. These religions followed fear and selfishness in order to maintain dominion over the people. They set man against man and created armies to destroy their brothers and sisters.
The Seventh Era
In the Seventh Era, the call has gone forth from the Creator demanding that we cease fighting and stop destroying life:
Your Creator commands you to change from a carnivorous Man of contention to a herbivorous man of peace. The four heads of the Beast will be put away, and war will be no more on the earth.
Changes reflecting the fulfillment of this demand from the Creator can be seen all around the earth. People are becoming more and more health conscious. People are standing up for the right to resist going to war:
The armies will be disbanded. And, from this time forward, whoever desires not to go to war, you will not force them, for it is the commandment of Your Creator.
Demonstrations are happening around the world against war, unjust governments, greed, and the pollution of our environment. We are in a time of great change and upheaval. Yes, we still have war, but many people no longer march to the war cries of their governments.
The major religions of the world are changing. Some are losing power and members. New groups for worship and study outside of the traditional organizations are forming all over the world. The traditional religions are becoming more liberal and reaching out to relate to each other. The Creator asks us to stop living in separation and to embrace the oneness of divine presence within us all and around us all. The time of separate religions is over:
Neither will you have any God, or Lord, or Savior, but only the Creator! Him only will you worship henceforth forever. I Am sufficient to My own creations.
In order for humanity to have the clarity and strength to rise above fear and selfishness we must be able to step away from selfishness and fear and decide that we will live in a new light of understanding. Throughout Eoih's Voice in the Wind we are shown how to step away and create a world of peace and prosperity for everyone. The people who choose this path are called Faithest because their faith is in the Creator:
And to as many as separated them from the dominion of the Beast, making these covenants to Me, have I given the foundation of My kingdom on earth.]
And all such people will be My chosen. By their covenants and by their works will they be known henceforth on the earth as Mine, and they will be called Faithists.
But to as many as will not make these covenants, have I given the numbers of the Beast, and they will be called Uzians, signifying destroyers. And these will be henceforth the two kinds of people on earth, Faithists and Uzians.
An Uzian is someone who has faith in the Beast, which could also be defined as "materialist reality and a self-centered perspective." They might not believe in a spiritual existence, or they might believe in spirit, but their trust is in the war machine and their own desire and ability to succeed in the materialistic world:
But to as many as will not make these covenants, have I given the numbers of the Beast, and they will be called Uzians, signifying destroyers.
This division of humanity is not about religion, or any particular faith being better than another, or any race being superior to another. It's about the difference between builders and destroyers, and the growth and evolution of humanity away from fear, greed, and destruction. In the Seventh Era, we must learn to embrace and create a world of peace, happiness, and respect for the beauty and sacredness of all people and all life.
The seventh era began in the 1850s. It is called the Kosmon Era:
Because this light is comprehensive, embracing corporeal and spiritual things, it is called the beginning of the Kosmon Era. And because it relates to earth, sky and spirit, it is called Oahspe.
The beginning of this era is the beginning of a new time of light upon the earth and the angels come to earth to teach mankind a higher way of life:
And the angels of heaven descended to the earth to Man and appeared before him, face to face, hundreds of thousands of them, speaking as Man speaks, and writing as Man writes, teaching these things of Creator and His works.
The Creator tells us that books and philosophy and science are never the ultimate truth. These forms of learning are just that and they help us along the way, but only the presence of the divine in this moment holds truth:
Not infallible is this book, Oahspe, but to teach mortals how to attain to hear the Creator's voice and to see His heavens, in full consciousness, while still living on the earth, and to know of a truth the place and condition awaiting them after death.
Neither are, nor were, the revelations within this Oahspe wholly new to mortals. The same things have been revealed at the same time to many, who live at remote distances from one another, but who were not in correspondence till afterward.CHAPTER 2
The Voice of Man
An Apology and a Plea for the Creator to Help and to Speak
The Voice of Man
Man apologizes for humanities lack of ability to rise above the lower desires of the earth, and our inability to hold onto goodness and purity in the face of the lures of the world. The great lures of worldly experience often overwhelm our physical being so that we cannot hear our spirit. The simplicity of creation and the subtle presence of the divine can be missed in the presence of the things that offer us excitement, novelty, and instant gratification. We are born with the capacity to have all these experiences and sensations, but we often miss the deeper, more subtle and enriching experiences that await us when we look beyond the obvious things of the material world:
What is my weakness that I cannot overcome it? Or what is my strength that I succumb to the desires of the earth? I build up my belief and courage in You, but I do not know the way of my weakness; I stumble and fall. Am I made that I will be forever a reproof to myself and a censure to my own behavior?
Man explains how war has turned people away from spirit. How war has accursed humanity by bringing hunger, suffering, and separation to the world and how selfishness has lured humanity away from spirit with glory, honor, riches, and power, which eventually leads to war. People have learned to be proud of fighting and killing. We have been taught to live from conflict. We fight in our families; we fight in business. We set schools against each other, races against each other, and countries against each other. We have learned to fear and distrust one another. Life on earth has become what we have made it:
Why have I vainly set up myself as the highest of Your works? My failures are worse than any other living creature under the sun. I cannot build my house in perfection like a bird's; my ingenuity cannot fashion a spider's net; I cannot sail up in the air like a bird, nor live in the water like the fish, nor dwell in harmony like the bee.
Half of my offspring die in infancy; the multitudes of my household are quarrelers, fighters, drunkards, and beggars; the best of my sons and daughters are less faithful than a dog! I go forth to war, to slay my brother, even while Your wide earth has room for all. Yes, I accurse the earth with starvation and sin and untimely death.
Mankind progressed into believing that building kingdoms and taking over other countries to make bigger kingdoms was a good thing to do. Aggression and domination became more important than kindness and compassion and freedom:
I made great pretensions in a kingdom. I called out to my people, saying: We must have a kingdom. I showed them no reason for it, but I asked them take up arms and follow me for patriotism's sake. And yet what was patriotism? Behold, I made it as something greater than You and Your commandment: You shall not kill.
Now war is commonplace. It has become so normal that many people do not believe the earth will ever be without it as long as Man lives on earth:
They built me forts and castles and arsenals without number. I called to my people, saying: Come, behold the glory of my defenses which I built for you! And they gave me money and garrisons, and ships of war, and torpedoes, shouting: Hurrah for our country! We have faith in these things, but not in You our Creator.
Man was not designed to remain barbaric. We are divine beings in the process of awakening to our higher potential and this awakening of consciousness will require awareness and trust. We have to learn to trust each other again, and to trust the Creator. Awareness and trust are essential for humanity to evolve beyond war and suffering.
People do not want war, but how can we possibly live in peace? Thou shalt not kill is relegated to when it is convenient. Believing in the concept of "an eye for an eye" is used to justify aggression and destruction:
O that I had remained faithful with You, Creator! But I invented Gods for the glory of the evil one.
In one place I called out to my sons and daughters, saying: "Be you Brahmins? Brahma saves whoever professes his name." In another place I said: Be you Buddhists? Buddha saves whoever calls on his name." In another place I said: "Be you Christians? Christ saves whoever calls on his name." In another place I said: "Be you Mohammedans? Whoever says: "There is but one God and Mohammed is his prophet," will have indulgence without sin.
This last quote is about how Man has changed the religions to gain the support and control of the people and to set Man against Man. As a result, we have forgotten that war is not a necessity. Peace is a necessity and a requirement for the earth at this time in its evolution.
In order for us to live in peace, we need to know that our longing for peace and a life of higher purpose is not only possible, but it is our soul's destiny as divine beings. We must trust that we have the capacity to understand how to live in peace and harmony.
Toward the end of The Voice of Man is a summary of our world's great faults:
In vain I have searched for a plan of redemption, a plan that would make the earth a paradise, and the life of Man a glory to You, and a joy to him.
But alas, the two extremes, riches and poverty, have made the prospect of a millennium a thing of mockery. For one person that is rich there are a thousand poor, and their interests are an interminable conflict with one another.
