Organic vs Inorganic Meaning, Part 2

Here is the text of this conversation:

“There may be two paths or more to a conclusion of meaning and the meaning is the same but one may be derivative and the other initial. Chuck had an initial meaning of Mach One plus, and there were others who speculated on it and thought it so, but they approached it from the side of not more than Mach One.

“Ok, I will try another analogy. Someone who knows her herbs makes up a sauce based on their knowledge of herbs and their cultural traditions. Another person just tastes and cooks.

Wintergreen. Would you eat a wintergreen candy? If you were a Brit, you would consider it a disinfectant scent. So if you were a Brit, you would never use it in cooking, but if you simply tasted it, you might.

“So you could reach a point of meaning based solely on external understanding that was the same as experiential, but one would be derivative and inorganic and the other original and organic.

“Now, conflict can arise when people talk about the reason why something is meaningful and the disagreement usually is based on whether the understood meaning has its own origin or is dependent on other systems of thought.

“ ‘People are basically good.’ For someone who bases this on their own experience to be told it is true because of the infinite goodness of the Creator creates a conflict. Both may say the same thing, but ascribe it differently. ‘Don't tell me it's not about my experience, but about your God.’ ‘Don't tell me, you think your experience is better than my God.’ Slap, slap… guns drawn… 100 Years War. [And they agreed as to the conclusions, but it does make a difference in your experience] Because organic is radical and inorganic is traditional. [So from inorganic, you can't go anywhere. It can't lead to anything else or develop into anything else.] Stuck."

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.
