thanks for the response. Yes, I have read to Steve's articles and listened to the podcasts on Subjective Reality and understood them. I happen to think they are excellent, and almost all of the conclusions they point to are extremely resourceful beliefs to have. I've taken much from them. My question is not an attack. I myself have nothing to reconcile - I was asking people who believe in both SR and spirits how THEY reconcile these beliefs.
There is a universe of form, and the infinite beyond form. I'm typing this at my computer in the physical realm, and yet I am somehow connected to the All-That-Is pure consciousness beyond - Indeed, I am pure consciousness. As are you, and everyone else. Meditation puts one in touch with the Source.
But according to psychics, there seems to be an in-between realm in which spirits, souls of the dead and other entities reside. If a psychic can commune with the spirit of the deceased, surely that is an indicator to the psychic, that other human beings have an individual consciousness. Something that goes against the very central tenet that SR is built on.
I understand where you are coming from though, and sure, that could be just another interaction within the psychic's own consciousness. But in my limited experience, when one transcends the ego there is awareness, stillness and the experience is that of oneness with the infinite - meaning connection with pure consciousness - yours, mine, at that level, we are all one - no "individual separate consciousness" left...
Don't get me wrong, as I've said SR is an extremely resourceful model which I utilize to great effect every day. I was just curious how Steve and Erin reconcile this.
