Update

I’ve been around the great state of Arizona this week. I have had the privilege of meeting and auditing a number of very high quality folk from the mountains to the desert. 

I was hosted by none other than the Cowboy Poet. It turns out he really is a cowboy, in addition to alot of other interesting things. Dean Thomas is an OT and man’s man (definition: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Man’s+man). He has done a lot of good things for Scientology over the years in his own intelligent and big think ways. Not the flash-in-the-pan antics that garner phony IAS videos and trinkets.  It is a godsend to have Dean on our team.

Chillin' with the Cowboy Poet

Dean took me staight to LRH’s historic 1952-1954 home by Camel Back Mountain.  He arranged for the CMO PAC LRH PPRO tour guide to give me a personal tour.  It was a wonderful experience to occupy the space where LRH first worked with exteriorization processes among many other tech milestones.

LRH's Phoenix home

Meanwhile back in Texas, DM repeated his pattern of stepping up harassment directly upon Mosey exclusively when I am out of town.  In addition to anonymous hang up phone calls, she received an anonymous email beseaching her to seperate from me. The email cited a number of suppressive traits quotes from LRH writings. Fortunately Mosey is so well versed in LRH that she immediately recognized the entire thing as a description of DM and a study in the criminal mind. Here is the real kicker. The email contained clues which Mosey and I pieced together to identify yet another spy DM has attempted to send in on our lives.  DM’s cowardice and stupidity are bccoming more evident by the day, which is a great inverse-ratio indicator of just how effective we have been of late.

With Dean riding shotgun independence is secure in Arizona; and will soon likely be throughout the southwest in my estimation. Dean will be weighing in here shortly with his view of things.

    Yeeeeeeeeeee Haaaaaa!!

    Cowboy Poet rides again!!

    Marty that is too funny having the CMO give you a tour of LRH’s house near Camelback! DM must be having convulsions!!

    ARC,
    Alex

  2. The tour of LRH’s house by CMO sounds like insouciance to me!

    Welcome, Dean! Or, that is, welcome as Dean, you’re not new to us as Cowboy Poet. It’s great to have a name and a picture and more of your story to go with the talent we already know about.

    Mosey is certainly too smart and educated to go PTS to DM’s suppressive tactics. Imagine that she was never inside the church, yet is more a Scientologist than most who are inside and who bow to “command intention,” including instructions to cut ARC lines and pervert LRH tech.

    But it still makes me seethe to to hear about such suppression from one who tries to position himself as the pope of Scientology. It DM is a Scientologist, then we’re all on Arcuras. 🙂

  3. Howdy Pardners! Marty and Dean, you are *radiant*!

    These photos exude joy and clean power and theta.

    It’s WAY COOL to see LRH’s Phoenix home. Is that where he lived when he did the Phoenix Lectures?

    The LRHPRO should be honored to give a tour to real friends of LRH. I am juts loving this, I will be smiling about this all night and through tomorrow:) You guys are great.

    And Hooray about piecing together the 1.1 source harassing Mosey with “pretended help”. If it weren’t a violation of privacy and travesty against decency, it’s hysterically funny.

    The ™Co$ brand is unmistakable: creepy and tacky.

    This is so very well put and accurate, Marty: “DM’s cowardice and stupidity are becoming more evident by the day, which is a great inverse-ratio indicator of just how effective we have been of late.”

  4. Amazing!

    Phoenix is where Scientology all began!

    The HASI was registered just a few miles from Ron’s place at the State Capital and the original Office of LRH was on North Central and the City Office was on North 3rd.

    Dean welcome aboard!!!

    What did Ron’s Personal PRO say when you guys asked for a tour?

    I bet that was a “Kodak Moment” 🙂

    Any way you guys can drop by the State House and renew the HASI?

  5. Wow it gets better and better. Recently an OSA moron tried to persuade one of my contacts to disconnect from me for being suppressive, in the reply to him it was pointed out that I’ve never uttered any bad news about Scientology nor LRH! He failed miserably….. just like any of his brand.

  6. Marty,

    I enjoy you having such a ball and I am so glad to see you so successfull in your lead across “the board”.

    ML, Fidelio

  7. Cowboy Poet, Howdy! I am an old cowboy too.
    We share a love for beautiful places. Arizona
    is by far my favorite state. I have a big selection
    of ‘Arizona Highways’ I have been all over that state many many times. My favorite place is
    Sadona, also Jerome, Pason, Strawberry and
    Pine, etc . Love the high lonely places. So glad
    you are a part of this wonderful group. Looking
    forward to your post.

  8. “Any way you guys can drop by the State House and renew the HASI?”

    If it’s possible that would be a win.

  9. Glad you had a great trip Marty. Nice photos.

    Is there a link where Cowboy Poet has his writings? I look forward to reading more.

  10. Watching Eyes

    It doesn’t get any funnier than this.

    I guess the Dwarf will now recall the LRH PRO and put her in the hole or beans & rice, sec checks, whatever. Will the Dwarf now humiliate & degrade this person to the point where he gets his jollies?

    Note to Dwarf: Leave the LRH PRO alone. People will be checking to see if she’s still there.
    You can’t stop this. People have had it. Remember the “tipping point”. It’s bigger than you.

  11. Some cowboy wisdom in honor of the two of you:

    * Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction.
    * Don’t squat with your spurs on.
    * Don’t judge people by their relatives.
    * Behind every successful rancher is a wife who works in town.
    * When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
    * Talk slowly, think quickly.
    * Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
    * Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second time.
    * Don’t interfere with something that ain’t botherin’ you none.
    * Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
    * It’s better to be a has-been that a never-was.
    * The easiest way to eat crow is while it’s still warm.
    The colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller.
    * If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
    * If it don’t seem like it’s worth the effort, it probably ain’t.
    * It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
    * Sometimes you get and sometimes you get got.
    * The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning.
    * Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.
    * If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.
    * Don’t worry about bitin’ off more’n you can chew; your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger’n you think.
    * Always drink upstream from the herd.
    * Generally, you ain’t learnin’ nothing when your mouth’s a-jawin’.
    * Tellin’ a man to git lost and makin’ himdo it are two entirely different propositions.
    * If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there with ya.
    * Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
    * When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don’t be surprised if they learn their lesson.
    * When you’re throwin’ your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.
    * Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back.
    * Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important to know what it is, but it’s sure crucial to know what it was.
    * The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back into your pocket.
    * You can’t tell how good a man or a watermelon is ’til they get thumped.(Character shows up best when tested.)
    * Never miss a good chance to shut up.
    * If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen are defrocked, shouldn’t it follow that cowboys would be deranged?
    * There never was a horse that couldn’t be rode;
    Never was a cowboy who couldn’t be throwed.

  12. Cowboy Poet reminds me of Curly from “City Slickers.”

    If he brings up the “one thing” thing then it’s a dead give-away that Curly had TWO twin brothers.

    And that he understands the Scientology doctrine of the “stable datum.”

  13. Nice words of wisdom Sam! LOL!!

    🙂
    Alex

  14. Welcome to the roundup Dean — it’s a real good time here.

    While the little girls in my city neighborhood were playing with dolls, I was pretending to ride horses and round em up with my friends. Always in my fav Hopalong Cassidy t-shirt.

    When I was old enough, I spent Easters at my aunt’s dude ranch in Wilson, WY. And really learned to ride. And think like a rangler … although she never did hire me!! Beg though I did.

    Love those sayings from Sam — real grit truth!!

    WH

  15. Good note. I’d like to add a reminder (for you DM) that the post title is the LRH PPRO not the DM PPRO

  16. Another bard, Robbie Burns, from his A Man’s a Man For A’ That:

    ‘Wha struts, an’ stares, an’ a’ that?
    Tho’ hundreds worship at his word,
    He’s but a cuif for a’ that.
    For a’ that, an’ a’ that,
    His ribband, star, an’ a’ that,
    The man o’ independent mind,
    He looks an’ laughs at a’ that. ‘

    The above is in the Scots dialect. A’ that is an expression, ‘all that’ that holds in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, and is tagged on the end of a phrase, such as ‘it’s a large day, an’ a’ that’ meaning it’s a beautiful day, and all that’. Below is the more familiar to English translation of the above stanza.

    ‘You see yonder fellow called ‘a lord,’
    Who struts, and stares, and all that?
    Though hundreds worship at his word,
    He is but a dolt for all that.
    For all that, and all that,
    His ribboned, star, and all that,
    The man of independent mind,
    He looks and laughs at all that.’

    Cowboy Poet, our very own Robbie Burns.

  17. In case it isn’t apparent, the stanza’s ‘lord’ is, you know who, the li’l fella, the ‘cuif’.

  18. Sam, You are a hoot!

  19. Dang, missed the first line of the Scots dialect version:
    ‘Ye see yon birkie ca’d ‘a lord,’

    There, my personal editor is out fishin’ an’ a’ that.

  20. Freedom Fighter

    Very cool!!! LOVE the insouciance! Welcome, Cowboy Poet and well done, Mosey, for spotting the truth!

    Heh, heh. The criminal always leaves clues . . .

  21. Jim,

    This poem is so appropriate to distinguish between DM (the lord with his “stars”) and Independent Scientologists. Thank you.

    Just Me

  22. Lol. I guess they didn’t get the memo out there….

    I’d love to see that e-mail. Might make for some fun reading.

    And welcome Dean! I look forward to hearing how things look from your perspective.

  23. veritas asked: “Is that where he lived when he did the Phoenix Lectures?”

    In addition to the Phoenix Lectures, LRH gave hundreds of other lectures in Phoenix. Phoenix is second only to Saint Hill as the location where LRH gave the most number of lectures!

    Phoenix was also the site of the first HASI in 1952 before the Church of Scientology was incorporated in 1954.

  24. I lived in beautiful Sedona for many years, and now my daughters are in Tempe. I have been wondering a lot if there was a field out there I could send them to!
    I love that desert too Sarge.

  25. Thanks for the chuckle, Sam. Wisdom couched in dry humor. Gotta love cowboys.

    And it’s nice to meet you, Cowboy Poet. I always enjoy your humor and wisdom, too.

  26. That dm even still tries to third party Marty to you, Mosey, is an expression of his inability to really believe in and love someone. He cannot conceive of the strength of your bond with your husband because he cannot feel that himself for another, nor can he himself have the return flow.

    Each time he tries something like this, he exposes his own ignorance and his own pathetic condition. If he could get a glimpse for just a moment of how pitiful and ridiculous he looks when trying this kind of deceit and manipulation, he would be appalled infuriated, and would probably rpf who ever was standing near him at the time.

  27. Marty,

    You have to watch for OSA operative infiltration. Infiltration and identity confusion are one of OSA’s main MO’s. Of course, along with black PR.

    My guess is they are going to try to get someone on the inside to get something on you.

    You have to let’s OSA’s punishment be your reward. When OSA is trying to punish you it is a clear indication that you are having an effect.

    Alex,
    I’ll just take some cut-zies here by acting like I’m replying to you, okay.
    It’s not often I get any limelight from anyone but my kids or my wife and she can sometimes dish it out a bit sparingly… so I want to take advantage of it.
    🙂
    While I have never been in the Sea Org, I have firsthand experience of the Stockholm Syndrome and the Stanford Experiment; I know the cruelty that one can experience at the hands of a monster as well as the circumstances that can lead one to be just as cruel to others. Perhaps it was that but it was also my observations of the shortcomings of my fellows that kept me from joining staff; it was just an experience I didn’t need. Needless to say, when I was introduced as a young man to Scientology I knew I was in need of some improvement so I trained and co-audited up through Dianetics and the grades in the mid-seventies and subsequent to that, I was in that first wave of people who received NOTs when it came out in the late 70s. My recognition of how Scientology has enriched my life has been consistent through the years that have passed since then; one only has to live a bit of life to come to such an obvious conclusion.
    Over the years, I have had personal experiences and made observations, like most of us have, that there were indications that things were not in keeping with the fundamentals of the philosophy that I believed Scientology should aspire to. When disillusioned I always went back to my roots which are of a western heritage. Those are simple things such as a man stands by his word and to treat others with common decency. After all, there is no such thing as “elite decency” is there?
    Over the last months I came to recognize that there very well might be a form of judicious governance emerging from Marty Rathbun so I extended an invitation to him to come to my home and that I’d take him either team roping (Google images: “team roping” for a visual explanation) or horseback riding out in the middle of nowhere with me for a day or so. (We both wisely decided that team roping would be a bit out gradient and besides, I didn’t want him banged up on my watch—but ya gotta love him; he’s a trooper; he was game!) First I wanted to air his head out by changing his environment because he’s been a lightning rod lately and secondly, I wanted to evaluate the man and possibly wipe the bugs off his windshield with the “Invisible Hand” so to speak. My motivation was knowing that many independent movements throughout history don’t make it by the very nature of the group members’ independence so I knew it would take an inspiring and well grounded person to pull it off.

    Surprisingly and to my delight, he took me up on my offer!

    Before I tell you what I think of Marty Rathbun, I have to tell you, I’ve done business with thugs in Southeast Asia, closed 8 figure deals with Fortune 100 companies and been a working cowboy on large cattle ranches as well as owning them. My life has been blessed and it has also been extremely varied. One thing I can assure you of, I can read people and I know what it takes to lead one’s fellows—in life when they can opt out, not when they sign on to a lifetime of commitment and their faith is manipulated through suppression to keep them there. All that being said, I can unequivocally say that Marty Rathbun is one of the finest people I have ever had the pleasure to spend time with. He is an inspiring and gracious person who emulates the best of mankind. He’s a no bullshit, straight-up man. While we were riding, we spent time talking about a myriad of subjects. His grasp of Scientology and other works of notable men as well as life itself has a depth and breadth that is truely enjoyable and I feel priviledged for the time I spent with him. The man is at a standard of living life that few attain and most aspire to.

    I am fiercely independent. You might as well try to rope the wind as to put me in lock step with anybody’s notion of what they think I should be or do. That’s why this is not a Declaration of Independence. What would be the point of that? Instead, this is my Declaration of Support for the salvation of a body of knowledge so that people can freely avail themselves of it without interference from those who do not have their best interests in mind.

    Thanks and when the pen is slipped into my hand and I feel so inspired, I’ll wordsmith some more fun together for those who will give me an audience.

    Thanks very much.

    Sarge,
    Then you’ll appreciate this.
    I told Marty when he was trying to fit the trip in his schedule not to take too much more time because the rattlesnakes come out in the warm spring days after being holed up all winter to get some sun. That, and they’re damned cranky cause they’re hungry.
    I said if he delayed it much longer that they’d be dropping out of the trees on us but if that was okay with him, we could make that fun.
    So we’re riding along down this very steep hill. Me in first for obvious reasons–so I can watch for snakes as I figure if there’s gonna be any “four legged hopscotch” I’m the one who can experience it easier than him.
    Down a hill as steep as we were on, a horse has to extend his neck and head down while he picks his way with his front hooves and let’s the back end sortta slide.
    So about 36 inches away from my horse’s head this rattler springs into a coil and bursts into warning rattles.
    My horse, and God bless him for his innate atheletic ability, is four feet back up the hill and completely turned around—he defied physics out of his necessity level.
    So you know what Marty says, “Hey, should we move that snake with a stick?”
    Talk about gamey or….!!!!!!
    To which I replied as I surveyed a new path down, “No, Marty, we’re gonna let him have that bush–I don’t want to experience 1200 pounds of out Int in-between my legs.”
    We had a great time–enriching for both of us!

  30. Cowboy Poet

    I’ll have to do that some day. I’ll let you know.

  31. Cowboy Poet

    Yes, Curly was an inspiration for the correct estimation of effort:
    I shit bigger than DM.

  32. Cowboy Poet

    Watching Eyes,
    He’s a fine young man.
    We both felt bad that now he might be hammered but as Marty pointed out accurately and pragmaticly: It’s just as well. He’ll never get up the Bridge being a slave so in the long run, he’ll be better off.
    There was nothing wrong in the performance of his post or anything that he did. He was a gracious host and we both thanked him for it.

    DM: Go tie someone else to the whipping post.

  33. Marty & Dean,

    That is the way to go! Insouciance!!!!! 🙂

    Marty, you look great! You are setting a great example for all of us to follow.

    Thank you for being true to yourself, LRH and the Independents.

    Mosey, I love you to pieces for your high integrity and being an strong lady next to your man (Marty).

    Welcome to the group Dean!!! 🙂

  34. What a delight. The poetry and the truth. Also enjoyed the romp into vernacular. Thank you, Jim Logan!

    Aye, for lack substance, them fancy fellows self inflate with hot air an’ a’ that.

    “The man of independent mind,
    He looks and laughs at all that.’”

    ★!

  35. The cost of a trip to Arizona from Texas, about $170.

    The cost of a trip to the LRH house from the airport,,,about $50 in cab fare.

    The cost of DM seeing a pic of Marty in front of LRH’s house in Phoenix?

    PRICELESS!!!!!!

    Centurion

  36. OK. I’ve read now a couple of people got goon emails. How did ™ C o$ OSA get the emails? Was it from when they hacked the blog?

    Invasive, illegal, rude, epic ignorance (lack of reality), insane (i.e., inability to distinguish differences and similarities) and just plain… creepy.

  37. “Dean took me staight to LRH’s historic 1952-1954 home by Camel Back Mountain. He arranged for the CMO PAC LRH PPRO tour guide to give me a personal tour.”

    Not only is Dean an amazing poet, he gets an A+ for arranging this tour! How’d you do that???

  38. These are great! LOL

  39. Practicing my Yodel! here’s a how-to video with Wylie. Let’s saddle up and RIDE, Arizona! 🙂

  40. So cool. Thanks, Jonathon Barbera.

  41. Maxim Zbitnoff

    The inner imp is alive and well. This almost has the makings of a reality TV show: Where Is Marty Now? One camera crew following Marty and one on DM.

    If not that then perhaps George Lucas could do a movie version of the saga: Raiders of the Lost Tech.

  42. LOL!

  43. Dear Cowboy,

    Thanks for those eloquent words.

    I really liked the part where you said: ” When disillusioned I always went back to my roots which are of a western heritage. Those are simple things such as a man stands by his word and to treat others with common decency. After all, there is no such thing as “elite decency” is there?” Your words have a big impact on me and I think others will be moved by them also.

    I too have felt that Marty is a man of character.

    Despite the black PR on him from the church coming my way, I felt I could see past that and “see” the real Marty. The one they wanted to unmock. I have been in Scientology for over 30 years and I gave it up because I could not sit back and say “this has nothing to do with me.”

    I will be following suit with you, as soon as I take care of a few things.

    Look forward to hearing more from you.

    I go to Arizona now and then, I would love to come by for a visit sometime if you are so inclined.

    ARC,
    Alex

    Thank you very much for your post. It’s always nice to discover another kindred spirit. I hope to meet you one day.

  45. LOL!!

  46. Wow CP! That’s an incredible story with the Diamondback.

    Horses I’ve been on would have bucked me right onto the snake. Great horse and rider!

  47. I thoroughly enjoyed this post and learning more about you.

  48. Freedom Fighter

    Absolute insouciance! I totally love the grin on your face, Marty!

  49. Theo Sismanides

    I love this cowboy spirit! And I love horses. That must have been beautiful!

    Phoenix must be the place, cowboy poet! It exudes all that theta and spirit of freedom. No wonder LRH did all that he did there!

    It’s good to see you both guys on that picture!

  50. one of those who see

    Hi Marty & Dean,

    Sounds like you are having a blast. Love the pic. 2 very handsome cowboys, if I may say so myself.
    Enjoy!

  51. Dean,
    I am hysterical!!! That is so Marty. Always an adventure. Thank you for keeping that rattlesnake safe from Marty 😉

  52. Cowboy Poet,

    How cool of you to give Marty a break and give him your full support. You’re a good, good man.

    Just Me

  53. Love you both too!!!

  54. Luna,
    EXACTLY!

  55. War and Peace

    Thanks Dean for an absolute wonderful write-up so well received on this blog.

  56. Dean, you are such a hoot. God, I love ya. You make it all fun again and that is as it should be. I laughed so hard and the picture of 1200 lbs, of”Out-Int between your legs”. kept me laughting for hours.

    Love ya Dean
    NCT/ Carol

  57. Marty & Dean,
    This is just so “in your face”. If the lil man was apoplectic yesterday he must be really over the edge now. Truly brilliant. I was literally crying I laughed so hard. I do hope that poor LRH PPRO doesn’t get hurt too bad. Wonder where Marlise is?

    And, it is so good to know that there is such a field in AZ, close to us in NV, and there for those who will be looking for friends outside the noose.

    Glad you had such a good time, Marty. You earned it. And, Mosey, you be the best! I sure do want to meet you some day.

    Eileen

  58. Thanks for all your words, Cowboy Poet. I thought I’d…hey, what is that noise? Oh, I know–it’s the sound of DM gnashing his teeth to powder at the sight of that photo of smilin’ Marty at Camelback!

    I hope it doesn’t go too badly for the CMO PAC LRH PPRO tour guide. If so, I rest assured the world will quickly know about it!

  59. Cowboy Poet

    There wasn’t much planning for the day–we just followed our noses and enjoyed ourselves.

  60. Wow, this post made me laugh. This shows that Marty has so much presence and ARC that he probaly could simply walk into any org without protest from the staff.

  61. martyrathbun09

    Hey Cowboy. Back in Texas. Thanks for everything, especially for introducing me to some incredible peeps, particularly Kim, the three progeny, and that wonderful mile high couple.

  62. Cowboy you are the best. I also share in the views you expressed about Marty. He is truly a beautiful being. his grasp of the technology is all present. Cowboy and Marty it was great spending time with you both.

    Love Carol

  63. I wondered where exactly it was, since I used to buy my stained glass supplies in Phoenix.

    It’s listed on google maps as LRH’S house in Phoenix.

    Anyone down that way ought to stop by for a tour. It’s sounds awesome.

    And I like the idea of the CMO PAC LRH PPRO tour guide getting the chance to show off the goods.

    Modest little ranch house though, that would never qualify as an idle org.

  64. “That’s why this is not a Declaration of Independence. What would be the point of that? Instead, this is my Declaration of Support for the salvation of a body of knowledge so that people can freely avail themselves of it without interference from those who do not have their best interests in mind. ”

    Simply amazing, for some reason those are the very words I have been waiting to read.

    The whole space of the situation here seems very much expanded since it touched your lines, big sky cowboy stuff that!

  65. You make me smile old man!

    ((RAISES ONE BENT FINGER))

  66. Redneck Thetan

    I really enjoyed hearing about the cowboy stuff you’ve been doing and how living like that has affected how you look at life and your experiences in Scientology. I grew up on a farm with an extended family of horsey people who taught me to ride and took me to rodeos. They also taught me a lot about how to look at life in a wider and more independent way. It’s been helpful, and what you say resonates.

    Glad you’re getting the chance to reconnect out on the range. And seeing LRH’s old house was very cool, I’m sure. 🙂

  67. Redneck Thetan

    Agreed. Especially on Mosey. She sounds like a helluva woman who knows the meaning of “Stand By Your Man.”

  68. Haha. Marty that is cool. Yes, he can walk in any org without being stopped.

    One reason is his presence and his ARC.

    Second, run of the mill staff don’t know what he is up to. I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone started running around because the IG RTC just showed up at their org.

    I was at Flag when the shit started hitting the fan last summer. I knew what was happening at the outside exactly due to my post and my need to know as required by my post.

    Other staff, FSO, FC except HCO’s, however, only knew what was happening thru the Freedom Mag mostly. Kingpin, blah, blah. I gave at least 5 staff interviews b/c they were asking around who these characters were.

  69. Dear Mr. Thomas,

    Thanks for taking care of our Marty! Everybody needs to get some space once in a while. Mighty thoughtful of you. Made me smile. Can’t even imagine what it made Miscavige do. Y’all take care now, ya hear! 🙂

  70. This is one of those times when I apply that old SO drill of permeating some place and getting the picture of what is happening.

    I think about those poor schlubs in OSA who monitor this blog, sitting in their windowless offices, wearing their polyester pants and white shirts with the ring around the collar and black ties with the food stains. They’re under pressure to read what’s here and write their Intel summary and they need to have it done before the next product conference or muster or all hands muster.

    They actually have plenty of time to do this but they take a look at those two damn pictures, the one of Marty and Dean and then Marty in front of LRH’s house and their minds begin to drift . . . wonder what it feels like to just up and go to another state for a few days . . . to go horseback riding and gaze at the Arizona desert in bloom . . . . to get more space than the 16″ between my nose and the computer screen . . . to pull up this blog and read it whenever you feel like, not because you have to but because you simply feel like it . . . I wish . . . Oops! BANG! Another withhold. Another overt of failing to meet the standard of the tough, no-other-fish-to-fry Tone 40 SO member. Damn, I hope this doesn’t read on my weekly O/W check.

    These frickin’ SPs are out to destroy Scientology. If I have to make sacrifices to save the Church, I will! It’s Command Intention!!!

    Anyway, that’s what I see when I do the drill.
    OSA guys, how accurate am I here?

    I’m not trying to hijack this thread, but you won’t believe what happened to me today. When I got my mail out of my UPS post office box (I got that so the cult of M doesn’t know my whereabouts), I got something from the IAS. Guess what, they now have their own “Idle Org” strategy! I guess giving honor statuses wasn’t enough for these darn vultures. The plan is to have IAS “Idle Orgs” in every major city on the planet. I only have one problem with that: THE IAS PROVIDES ABSOLUTELY NO EXCHANGE FOR ALL THE MONEY THEY FLEECE OUT OF YOU!!!

    OK, now that I got that out my system, I decided to design my own honor status since I can’t make case gain:

    DORKUS MAXIMUS DUCKBILL PLATYPUS TRIPLE DIAMOND PATRON MERITORIUS WITH HONORS AND EXTRA CHEESE

    Hip Hip!

    (btw, I’m not joking about the IAS Idle Org strategy; I guess selling Dianetics books while the church’s PR is at an all-time low is just not working)

  72. If you see a rattlesnake in the road ahead, it’s time to aberrate! 🙂

    I think we all know the answer to that last question of yours Dan. Very accurate – right on the money. We’ve all been there to greater or lesser degree. Graeme, if you’re reading this – YOU KNOW. I know you know. You have safe sanctuary any time you want it, just say the word.

  74. Joe,
    In the beginning and forever is the decision and the decision is TO BE. Right along with that is the first action of beingness, assuming a viewpoint and with that the second, creating something to view from that viewpoint. Then you’ve got dimension from the viewpoint to the dimension points. Stipple it in and you’ve got lots to look at and lots to be.

    That IS beingness, otherwise it’s just the Static. One, two, three-beingness.

    Being those polyester pants, the ring-around-the-collar white shirt and food stained coffee and a computer screen, the chair, maybe out to the 8 corners of the room and some points in between is being that.

    How much more being is extending points out to another state, occupying that space and being that large? With more of the one, two, three of beingness how much more can one perceive differences, similarities and identities?

    What happens if you can be all that you see? Can you do more? Postion terminals in that space, hold them apart and get energy between them? Have what you’ve created? Share it with others and bring about new reality?

    Life happens. Change happens. Scientology is all about changing conditions. Those poor saps in OSA peering at this on their computers are in an induced shrunken space. That’s how you get matter. Matter doesn’t live much, it’s effect. It’s done to. It’s not doing.

    Hey OSA guys, you can change that condition. It’s not what LRH postulated, it’s not my postulate, it ISN’T the Sea Org unless you agree to it. It can be different. Go ahead, put out some points, extend to them, BE.

  75. I thought this quote by HH Dalai Lama especially fitting after seeing these 2 handsome, fit and happy cowboys:

    “An affectionate disposition not only makes the mind more peaceful and calm, but it affects our body in a positive way too.

    On the other hand, hatred, jealousy and fear upset our peace of mind, make us agitated and affect our body adversely.

    Even our body needs peace of mind and is not suited to agitation. This shows that an appreciation for peace of mind is in our blood.” ~ The Dalai Lama

    Look how happy Marty and Dave are. Genuinely cheerful and relaxed.

    Now — remember the pained, pinched and rather pathetic faces of Norman and Guillaume.

    Time to truly WISH (postulate) the same peace, happiness, space and AFFECTIONATE disposition for all those imprisoned at Hemet – and thus break free, figuratively and literally!

  76. Welcome Cowboy Poet. Have enjoyed your many poems.

    Got my start this life in Prescott, AZ then rode my own horse at my grand parents ranch somewhere in Paradise Valley in the early 40’s.

    Used to visit Prescott in the 50’s in July for the famous rodeo, “Frontier Days”.

    Thank you for hosting Marty and giving him a taste of my birth state.

    Hope to meet you some day. Hell we may be related.

  77. Cowboy Poet, I’d a got throwed and bit. Didn’t
    say I was a good cowboy. Me and snakes don’t
    get along. I’m surprised Marty didn’t stare that
    snake down with his best TR0 and with a good
    tone 40 say’now git!’.

  78. Virgil Samms

    Cowboy –

    Nice post. I’ll be an audience for your writing any time. I like your writing and your no bullshit attitude. I’d ride into hell with you any day.

  79. Since “toughness is high on the Tone Scale”, it just makes sense that toughness would be more often associated with having a “flippant good time.” Marty and the Cowboy Poet gave us a pretty good demo of Toughness.

    Jack, Remind me tell you about Prescott when we meet real soon.

  81. toughness is often cconfused with violence.

    I got an e-mail this week about the creation of “Ideal Continents”. They’re just making this stuff up as they go along! So, much for what LRH says.

    I think we should start mailing packages of nuts to these squirrels.

  83. After last weeks media storm, I find a sort of poetic irony in the fact that he is out learning to AVOID rattlesnakes.

    A good lesson to learn CP.

    Long may you ride.

  84. LOL…great visual!
