The Past Lives Podcast Ep83 – Dr Mark Pitstick

This week I am talking to Dr Mark Pitstick about his book ‘Greater Reality Living, Integrating the Evidence for Eternal Consciousness’.

Much evidence strongly indicates that bodily death is not the end of your life, but rather an entry point into the next phase of life. This evidence, combined with a highly probable emergence of spirit communication technology as early as 2018, will very likely create a major shift in the human experience.

Our goal is to provide an evidence-based integrative foundation for expanding your awareness of the greater reality, the vast portion of life that cannot be perceived by your five senses. We hope to prepare you and as many people as possible to realize that life continues after physical death. From that perspective, you can best choose how to live, treat others and yourself, and enjoy greater reality living.

The greater reality is all that actually exists. The vast majority of it cannot be perceived by your five senses, but is nonetheless very real. Because so much of reality escapes the senses, you likely have viewed life on earth as though through a tiny pinhole and then wondered why things don’t make sense.

Our perspectives are based on contemporary knowledge and understandings from scientific, clinical, and empirical evidence. A greater reality perspective indicates, with varying degrees of certainty, that you:a. continue living after physical death.b. do not really lose loved ones after their bodies end; you can reunite with them when you change worlds.c. can enjoy a continuing, although different, relationship with ‘departed’ loved ones. d. encounter not just one but many life experiences.e. are one with the One and an integral part of Sourcef. receive assistance and guidance from sources described as angels, guides, master teachers, higher energies, and the Light.g. create how heavenly or hellish your life feels, whether on earth or elsewhere, by your predominant thoughts, words and deeds.h. are interconnected with other people, animals, nature, and all of life.i. have special purposes for experiencing being on this planet now.

None of the above is apparent when you rely on just your five senses per se. All of the above can assist having a more joyful, peaceful, and meaningful human experience.

What is greater reality living? This term describes how you might choose to live as you expand your awareness of reality. How would you live and treat others if you deeply knew that, for the list above, statements (a – c) have a very high degree of certainty for being true, and the others are quite probably true?

Five keys to greater reality living – Learn, Internalize, Vitalize, Enjoy, Serve – can be remembered by the acronym LIVES: 1. Learn the evidence that your life continues after physical death. 2. Internalize the comforting and inspiring news that death is not an end.3. Vitalize and balance yourself holistically.4. Enjoy the many benefits of greater reality living. 5. Serve others to help them – and yourself – and make the world a better place.

We offer insights, resources and hope for those who are searching and suffering, particularly if you are:- grieving loved ones after their bodily death- fearing the end of your body.- struggling with the suicide of a loved one. – experiencing your physical body dying.- suffering with difficulties such as failed relationships, physical or mental illness, broken dreams, financial loss, lack of purpose, or addicted family / friends. – thinking of suicide.- mourning the bodily death of a beloved pet.- wrestling with religious teachings that don’t make sense to you now.- searching for sensible answers to your biggest questions / challenges. – desiring to enjoy the greatest life you have envisioned. – wanting to transform yourself and our planet for the better.

Our understandings and the strategies described in this book, when applied consistently over time, can greatly assist these and other challenges.
