Rita’s World, Volume II continues the conversation between the author, still in the body, and his long-time friend Rita Warren, now in the non-physical world. In 3D life, Rita had engaged in weekly sessions in which she asked Frank, in an altered state of consciousness, far-ranging questions about the nature and meaning of life. Transcriptions of those sessions were made into a book, The Sphere and the Hologram, after she died in 2008. Now, seven years after she made her transition out of the physical life (3D), she returns to the same subjects with a different perspective . . . from her world now.
Is life meaningful? Are we somehow important to the world? Is there a way for us in 3D to visualize and understand the non-3D world? The six months of conversations comprising the two books of Rita’s World answers these questions. Flowing as simply and easily as a conversation between friends, it offers the reader a new way to see the world. It puts the center of life back where it belongs, after centuries of incomplete and misleading answers. What’s more, it shows people by example how to find out for themselves what their life really is, and what it really amounts to.
Those who were fascinated by Seth or Edgar Cayce will like this book.
Frank DeMarco is the author of nine books rooted in 25 years of psychic exploration, including The Cosmic Internet, Afterlife Conversations with Hemingway, and The Sphere and the Hologram. Since 2005, he has been actively engaged in an on-going series of conversations with various non-physical beings, including historical individuals, "past lives," aspects of personal guidance, and a generalized group he calls "the guys upstairs."

This is the second volume of a series of conversations I had with my old friend Rita Warren after she had left the body. In these conversations, Rita and I were continuing a task we had set ourselves while she was still alive, looking for answers about life, and the meaning of life, and the afterlife, and the meaning of that.
We were a generation apart in age (she was 26 years my senior) and were very different in many ways. For one thing, she had had a distinguished academic career, as opposed to my background in journalism and book publishing. But we had had similar experiences with TMI residential programs, and we shared an intense interest in the hidden nature of things. Rita, while in the body, had been trying to satisfy her curiosity. Now, she was setting out to answer those same questions, with the benefit of her new vantage point. Direct communication with the other side of life, the nonphysical side, is as close to first-hand information as we can get.
Of course, anyone exploring the question of life on “the other side” is soon presented with difficulties. It is difficult to envision. How do beings there spend their time? What is it they do, and why do they do it? What if anything is their relationship to us? What light, if any, does their existence shed on our life here? Can such questions be answered?
Of course they can. The world’s scriptures have been answering them for centuries. But that doesn’t mean we understand what’s written. New ears can be dead to old words, and so sometimes old truths have to be restated to be heard. What’s more, sometimes new perspectives make old words more understandable. In our time, neither science nor religion—neither believers nor materialists— provide us with a credible picture of the meaning and nature of life. So Rita and I set out to provide a new picture of interaction between the physical and the non-physical aspects of the world.
In the summer of 2001, as I explained in the introduction to volume one, she and I began several months’ worth of weekly sessions at her house, she asking the questions and examining the answers, I doing my best to let the information flow through me. Session by session, “the guys,” as we called our interlocutors, introduced and built upon certain themes, and as we absorbed the picture they were painting, our lives changed.
Rita died March 19, 2008, while I was still trying to get our transcripts into publishable form, and I assumed our work together was over. But one night in December, 2014, I dreamed of her saying she was ready for us to work together again. The next morning, I sat down with my journal and announced myself ready. That turned out to be the first of six months of sessions, usually every day, with the exception of one two-week hiatus. When we seemed to reach a natural place to pause, in mid-May, that was all right with me: We had accumulated quite enough material to change anybody’s life.
Of course I am aware that common sense would argue that we and the deceased cannot communicate. The trouble is, “common sense” depends upon two unstated assumptions. The first says the past is gone and the future is not yet created and the present is all that exists. The second says the dead either cease to exist or exist beyond our range. Understandable assumptions, but neither one is true. Centuries of recorded experience testifies to people seeing the future and communicating with the dead. Souls live on after life in the 3D universe, as alive as when they were here, but outside of time and space. Being outside of time and space, all times and all spaces are available to them, which is why we can communicate with them about things in our life that happened long after they were gone.
That doesn’t mean that we can know for sure that we aren’t just making it up, nor that we know just who we are interacting with, nor that the information we receive is true. But those are the wrong questions. A message has to stand on its own, to resonate with you or not, rather than lean on someone’s presumed authority. The only thing we can know, and the only thing we need to know, is: does the material resonate? In other words, is it useful to think that way? Explorers by definition move into poorly mapped or unmapped territory. They cannot be required to always know what they are doing, or where they are going.
A few concepts carried over from volume one that you should keep in mind. “Sometimes, to understand A, you have to understand B, but to understand B, you have to understand A.” One of the most enlightening concepts I have come across, it explains why some things can’t be said directly, but must be hinted at until other changes in your viewpoint allow you to see it more clearly.
“The 3D world and the non-3D world are not two things, but one.” Divisions in the universe are never absolute, only relative. The implications of this one just keep expanding as you mull it.
“We are not so much individual units, as committees learning to function as individuals.” This very important concept explains a lot about life and relationships. We are more like bundles of threads, connected in all directions to others, than we are like the images that the word “individual” summons.
“As above, so below.” As said from ancient times, different levels of the world are scaled differently, but structured similarly.
And that should be enough to get you started.
