LETTER TO THE FIRST GUARDIAN ANGEL OF PHILADELPHIA
The arrival of First Philadelphia in Ryan’s life was a spiritual challenge for him that eventually caused one of the greatest resurgences of his spirituality in his life. When he left Littleton for Boulder in August of 2011, he was challenged by the pull that he had between the LDS Church and the Catholic Church. First Philadelphia would not only provide insight, but she would also provide a third path for Ryan that he would eventually lead down.
First Philadelphia was one of those people that, up to that point in his life, Ryan would have shunned away as nobody, but there was something different about the pull of her on Ryan’s life and that allowed her to exert such powerful influence.
The influence on the life of one another in this relationship went both ways. Ryan tried to gain influence over First Philadelphia and tried to get her to come to his side, seeing the authenticity of her character shining through, but he eventually gave in and accepted her for who she truly was. The love that Ryan had for First Philadelphia is expressed in this conflict that he had in his own heart.
The group of letters is rich in explaining the nature of the relationship that he had with First Philadelphia on a powerful level of human expression. In it, he lists his hopes and fears involving her and the future that he faces, which was uncertain for a long time. By the end of the letters, however, he had complete confidence that he was doing the right thing and had opened his mind and heart to a different kind of person that provided him with more happiness than he could have ever hoped for.
Correspondence given to First Philadelphia by Ryan in November of 2011 concerning the difference between tradition and fellowship, The biggest challenge that Ryan faced with his interaction with First Philadelphia was the challenging of the status quo that Ryan had up to that point. He saw many good things from First Philadelphia, but he also saw many things that he once cast off. He did not understand what was right and what was wrong and he approached it the wrong way the first time. Through his interactions with First Philadelphia, however, he was able to better understand what he was going through.
Dear First Philadelphia,
I have now seen you and am now writing this letter to you to share with the world. Your unmatched beauty has been embodied in four beings, the four by which the temple will rise out of the ashes and usher in the new dispensation. You will one day take upon yourself the new name of the son of the gods throughout all ages and embody the mystery of the new covenant. You will come together with the other three bodies and build a new temple, these three which you have not known until very recently. You are all now as one flesh and has come together in spirit with me and your spirit will be within me forever.
May the glory of the world be with you forever. May you teach the world the new and everlasting truth upon all the men of the world. The current ones are good but mostly outdated and filled with myth and they will all bow to the purity of all truth which I will have established upon man. This is not just the gospel by men, it is the gospel created upon the revelations of the greatest thinkers of the world and has now come together into the volume. For through this, all religions shall be expanded upon which all the myth will be taken out and thrown in favor of reason and the teachings and this will be what constitutes the new and everlasting covenant.
All of mankind must abandon all the useless rituals and dogma of the old ways and embrace the teachings and the new covenant which has been established because it is the evolution of man. You must embrace the new path and come to your own conclusions. After this reasoning, you will realize that this is the only logical path to real happiness and salvation. It was through you that I was able to see the error of my ways. Although you wanted to come with me to see my ways, you were really giving me reason to come to your way.
I have seen and done all of these rituals. I now find them to not matter because it is not necessary to our salvation. You may think that is different, but I have been on an extraordinary journey through these rituals. I have seen the churches and creeds and they will not matter under the new and everlasting truth. It was through your conversations with me that I was able to realize the errors of my ways.
I have not preached to you anything of human origin, but I received these things through revelation, like the one I had while I was with you. I have been and will continue to be persecuted for the beliefs that I hold with the world. I shall achieve my destiny and bring this work forth to the new age. I have been set apart as the one to bring forth this new covenant. You changed my life and you shall take your place as the rightful guardian angel of Philadelphia I hold so dear.
I am presenting the old ideas in new ways and that is the extent. I have added nor taken away nothing from what was taught before by the great teachers of the world. You shall be a pillar of the new temple to be built in the new Zion that is this covenant. It was through you and your guidance that helped me to see and understand this reality that could only come through your experience. I never had anyone like you and the love that you have towards me was something that I could not have anyone replicate.
All nations will be blessed through this one covenant for the entire world through their reasoning and abandonment of blind faith. The laws and prophecies will be fulfilled with the coming of the new covenant. For there will be no war, but instead there will be peace to bring about the unity of humanity for a greater cause. It is your cause and your life that inspired me to want to strive for better. For all the bad that you have been through and the image that you put in front of you, I want the people to see through that.
There is no need to give to the heavenly beings for they will not hear or see what you have done. You will be justified living your life to the fullest and dying with a good name. Do not fear death, for there is nothing anyone can do ever to stop it. Live your life for today and do good always and look out for yourself and fellow humans. We will come together to achieve what is today impossible for the hope of a better tomorrow.
The promises made to you will not be nullified by the law. You are all descendants of the same race and the promise is sent to all of you. The covenant will not be nulled until the new covenant comes and then nullifies them. I am the mediator that will break the old laws of the covenant. I shall put a new covenant in the place and I will not break any promises to you or to the world. All of this will be sworn to you as you will be remembered in this way for the rest of eternity.
Correspondence given to First Philadelphia by Ryan in November of 2011 at a time when Ryan was undergoing many changes in his life and wondered about what he would do regarding his dying relationship with Alaina that was occurring at the time, Ryan was confused about what he would need to do to forge ahead into the future. He needed to get clear instructions and inquired about it.
Dear First Philadelphia,
I am going through a lot of things right now in this transition from one world and one standard to another standard. You are perhaps greater in treating me than anyone before me, but you are not the kind of person that I would normally fall for. You have helped me to see the light and the errors of my ways. Although I have been against you at first and stood against everything that you stood for, you have taught me to see the light. Although you are not what I expected to be on the outside, you exceeded my expectations on the inside, and that is very meaningful to my life.
You shall live in my memories forever. Through all the faults that you and I have had in our lives and despite all the things that I have done to hurt you, you still consider me to be a friend and you still care deeply for me. I do not want you to change who you are. Keep on doing what you think is right because the things that I thought were right and good were actually wrong. Cherish the freedom that you have now because I do not want you to lose it at all.
We are guided in our lives through the spirits and the ultimate authority that will lead us into the lives of people that we least expect. You will have a fulfilling life in the world if you cherish all the things that you have. Do not have other people tell you what you think is right and wrong. I do not want the things I say affect you negatively. I want to give this to you so that you can warn the world of the people that think that they have all the answers of the world.
I thought that I knew what was best for you and I thought that I was the authority of right and wrong in the world. I was wrong in this and you still stick by my side. I see all the people in my life leaving that I thought were good and became bad. The things that I saw that were bad had become good people in my life. By the fruits of the spirit that dwells within you, I can see who you truly are on the inside and that is the heart of gold that you possess, despite what you have projected to me. I realize that, through you, I need to find a way to be a better person in this life and you helped me to find a path to those ends.
Correspondence given to First Philadelphia by Ryan in December of 2011 concerning the role of the spirit in the life of the individual, it was something that was also a major topic of discussion between the two. The role of the spirit in Ryan’s life became much stronger through the strong will and spirit of First Philadelphia. The role of the spirit was expanded and the difference between truthfulness and falsity was further expounded.
Dear First Philadelphia,
You have held the strongest to my word and held to my name and have not rejected it. You are the truest friend I ever had in body and spirit. You’re a strong willed person and will hold to what you have. You will stand your ground the most with me against the forces of the world trying to stop the new and everlasting covenant. It was all through your spirit that my spirit became stronger.
You shall have faith only in the things that are without a shadow of a doubt. If you have faith in gaining wisdom, you must work at that. If you have faith that the sun will come up, it will happen because of the laws of the universe. Do not have faith in things that have not already been proven. You are all one with the creator and it has been proven that these things will happen because of our nature.
Do not be afraid to leave, but come to the new light where there are no rules bestowed upon you and you will not have to do all sorts of complicated rituals for the new covenant. We must not be under many laws of the universe, but enough to guide our lives forever and to live in peace and harmony. Do not be constrained under laws, but come to the new covenant where free will and reason reign supreme. The only thing asked is to love yourself and to love your neighbor. The laws that are taught to you will be the things that are given through the universe.
You will be persecuted from the false religions and they will say that you are condemned. Remember that their reality is fake and their threats are based on false and empty threats. There is no such hellfire or demons in the world. When one dies, there is a state of eternity that all go to that is unknown. The ones who do not love will be sent to endless deaths in this life and for eternity.
You are free to live your life the way you want to. Although I have told you so, I was blind at first and now I can see because of you. You have helped me to see the light. This is why you have changed my life. You have completed the second cycle and you shall live in my memories forever.
I have done nothing wrong, yet you think I am ill. You have lied to me and told me that you were my friend, but you have betrayed me somewhat. You have come and gone and you have thought you could leave me forever. I almost took you to be the future queen and you have abused my kindness. You are forgiven, but I may be more forgiving than the one who knows all things.
Respect those who are above you in the stages of enlightenment or power. They have worked hard to be in this position and will continue to lead unless they do it ineffectively. They should, in turn, respect you too and not deny you of the path to greater glory and enlightenment. We are all entitled to achieve this path. We are also required to seek this path always and to act and walk as such.
Listen to your spirit, for it will save you always. Your spirit is what comprises your common sense and your gut feeling. By the fruits of the spirit of the men will you know of the true nature of man, earth, and of the creator. You seemed to be someone who was not good, but you were better to me than those I have encountered in the past. I have had connections with you that I would have not had with any of the people before me of a religious sense.
Do not be tempted to do harm to other people. Bear your own burdens and make things right for yourself. You are humans and humanity is nothing alone. Humanity can be anything together in unity. You are responsible for your own actions so you must take control of your life. Find out who you are before it is too late. Do the good things throughout your life and live your life according to what your conscience and spirit tells you. We are all humanity, so we must make life better for humanity.
This is the final appeal to you, guardian angel of Philadelphia. I love you with all my heart, soul, and strength. I know who you are and you are bigger than what you think you are. Look into yourself and look at who you are and what your place in the earth is. I know you do not get along with your kindred and your father is dead. I know you abuse your mind and body for temporary pleasure. You are miserable on the inside, but you shall rise above that and you will no longer suffer. For although I say this letter to the first manifestation I have met of the angel of Philadelphia, I say this to the entire world. May glory be with you forever.
A correspondence given to First Philadelphia by Ryan in January of 2012 concerning a question that she once had told Ryan and one that he was unable to answer at the time, It also concerns her appointment as one of the greatest of all time.
Dear First Philadelphia,
I will answer your question now. In the world, there are four elements and they are of earth, water, fire, and air. Each of the elements are represented in the greatest of religions in the world and it is no different when we all go through the initiations of life. The earth is where you start and it will lead you to the water, thence to the fire, and thence to the air, and it will bring you back again. The four represent the cycles of life and of the cycles of many things. All of us will understand the importance of the cyclical nature of these elements and of the earth. It is you that will start this cyclical process for me and help me to understand this process as I am going through this year and interacting with these people.
Correspondence given to First Philadelphia by Ryan in November of 2011 concerning the topic of freedom when it comes to morality, It talks about the power of the individual and the flexibility of what morality is. She challenged everything that Ryan knew about this topic and it was up to him to make sense of what he was experiencing through her. He remained patient and stopped attacking. Ryan inquired and made this statement as a response and as a submission to say that he cannot change who she is and that he will accept her for who she is.
Dear First Philadelphia,
You have always had freedom in this life to do what you want to do. You need to do what is best for you because your life is short. You have a destiny that will be fulfilled when your time of death comes. You will be of no benefit to mankind if you go after the false things of life. You will not be justified and you will know what is right and wrong only in your heart. You will know what your destiny is one day and you will know how to fulfill it before you die.
You should go out and discover the world around you and you will discover the great things in life. You will gain more knowledge and wisdom as time goes on and you will see the way that is right. All of the things in your life will come and go, name for a very few things. All of the fears and frustrations in your life will come to you and you cannot escape that, but they are only temporary things and that you will have to move forward in your own life.
Correspondence given to First Philadelphia from Ryan in December of 2011, for the purpose of explaining the true difference between that of the flesh and that of the spirit
Dear First Philadelphia,
You are on this earth to fulfill something of a greater purpose. You will not die in vain, but you will die when your purpose is fulfilled and the great destiny of your life is realized. Live by your spirit and do what your spirit tells you to do. Do not go what the people around you want you to do, but take by my example and do what you think is right. Live with the gifts that you have and the life that you are living in the moment. You can and you will do much to teach this as an example to many people because you have done so with me. I will not be the same without you and that is what you must do for others.
