Meaning in the Connections and not the Connected Elements

here is the text of this conversation:

“Ok, let’s talk combining into more complex entities. Does that mean your spiritual entity connects with other entities? How physical! Think about it in more sharing terms. All that you are spiritually is open and available to the other elements of the greater complexity, not individually but collectively. It’s not like a frat mixer, it’s like an anthology. And the identity of the new entity is only real within itself. So the elements can sense and know the totality of the other elements but only within the reality of the greater complexity. If any entity were to step outside… and I don’t mean that literally… they would cease to have connection to all that.

“I give you a flawed analogy—flawed not in being wrong, but in being incomplete. A group of people decide to dine. Each person decides on their own. They arrive at this little ristorante on a side street in Firenze. Si si. And they find themselves at a big shared table with a common meal and magic happens. Communications cross languages, lives mingle. There develops a common and familiar story. The new unit has its own identity. But if anyone were to step outside or even go to the WC, the new entity would no longer be and while they might remember being there they would no longer be part of that new whole. The new combination exists as meaningful only within itself and as others observe it, but not as qualities that can be separated.

“The model I have used is of molecules but that is both too simple and wrong. Too physical. It is the knowing connection of being, not the being itself! Unpack that.”

About the Podcast

Live from the Afterlife
The Spiritual Persistence Conversations
You can be there when we "speak" with the afterlife!

In 1995, we began our spiritual conversations with the afterlife, contacting the spirit of Rikkity. Since then we have had thousands of such conversations. We have found these messages to be extremely insightful and helpful.

Over the years we have shared some of the transcripts of our communications but they felt second-hand in a way.

So, here are these "Live from the Afterlife" podcasts - live recordings of actual sessions.

Randy & Elissa Bishop-Becker

We are the team, Elissa and Randy, who engage in afterlife communication with Rikkity and her friends.

This 25+ year journey is in addition to Elissa's as Licensed Professional Counselor and Randy's as Unitarian Universalist Minister, both now retired. Residents of the Conch Republic (Key West), we are lovers of books, music, travel, beaches, and life.

Ericka (known as Rikkity in spirit) is our beloved daughter. She died in an automobile collision with a drunk driver on August 20, 1995. She was 20 years old, and going into her junior year at Yale.

8 days after Ericka’s death, we began communicating with her.

Spiritual Persistence is Rikkity’s name for the wisdom she shares in the form of Points to Ponder. It is a vision of the nature of spiritual and physical existence, of the continuity between life and death, of connection, and of our place in the universe. And it is guidance we follow that has helped us to learn, to heal from grief, and to live better lives.

We are here to share this wisdom and to explore what it means to you personally, as we learn from one another on this journey.
