    Congratulations!!! Mr. & Mrs. Rathbun! I am smiling ear to ear!

    From: YES “And you and I”

    And you and I climb, crossing the shapes of the morning.
    And you and I reach over the sun for the river.
    And you and I climb, clearer, towards the movement.
    And you and I called over valleys of endless seas.

  66. CONGRATULATIONS! That is exciting news indeed.

  67. Wind Walker

    Congratulations Marty and Mosey!

    Here is a poem that I wrote for my love that we would like to share with you.


    I have a goal;
    to live with you,
    as young and old,
    and see our worlds unfold as one.
    And should, in death, we part
    I’ll look for you,
    and maybe,
    some day hence,
    I’ll hold you gently in my arms,
    as lover,
    or as kin,
    and we shall spend another life
    as mortal, loving friends.

    We send our love,

  68. Well wishes from ASGARD

    Congratulations, Marty and Mosey. I wish you abundant joy!

    A Wedding Toast

    May your love be firm,
    and may your dream of life together
    be a river between two shores–
    by day bathed in sunlight, and by night
    illuminated from within. May the heron
    carry news of you to the heavens, and the salmon bring the sea’s blue grace.
    May your twin thoughts spiral upward
    like leafy vines, like fiddle strings in the wind,
    and be as noble as the Douglas fir.
    May you never find yourselves back to back
    without love pulling you around
    into each other’s arms.

    By James Bertolino

  94. Mosey – quit it with the Mr. & Mrs. Rathbun thing will ya until I can get myself under control. It’s still making me cry. 🙂

  95. It was a beautiful wedding.
    There was so many there that could have been selected as Best Man. In order to not let anyone be left out, the ring was passed from Guest to Guest….it gave so much participation.

    Congratulations poured in from around the world, but Mark and Claire Headley’s poem and message took the cake.

    The re-union of old friends itself was quite something.

    Marty and Mosey ~~ Bright Blessings and all good postulates and wishes. The future shines bright.

  96. Christie and Mike
    Thankyou for an eternity worth of pleasure moment material. You are both beyond amazing.

  97. An afterthought !
    If you would like to send Marty something for his wedding, there is a donate button on top of the page ~ it takes you to Paypal.

    Most folk want to contribute to a New Life, hence the suggestion.

    What wonderful news!

    Congratulations to the two of you!!

    You look beautiful, all of you!

  129. Mosey,

    Recently, I read a story about a guy who had crawled to death’s door. He was right there, about to reach over, but resting because he was so weak. The burdens he carried were crushing him, making it hard to breath: all those overwhelming feelings of betrayal, failure and uncertainty. If he could only get past that door, he would be free. Maybe not free forever, but temporarily.

    Willing himself onward, he started to reach across the threshold, but paused. A presence behind him beckoned. Over his shoulder, he saw the eyes of an angel. She smiled, and spoke. “What do you think you’ll find over there, big guy?”

    “Peace,” he sighed.

    “Ah, peace.” She nodded. “Ever think, maybe, you could find just as much on this side? Maybe more?”

    Speaking taxed his last bit of energy, but he had to explain. “I can’t carry these burdens any more.”

    She looked next to him, at the heavy bags he had packed and dragged across the floor. “Those burdens?”

    He glanced sideways, moaned, and shrugged. “Can’t carry them any further.”

    “So, you going to leave them here for me to clean up?”

    His knuckles were white on the handles. “They’re mine. Don’t worry about it.”

    She smiled. “Okay. But, before you go, I just baked an apple pie.”

    The aroma of apples, crust and spices wafted from the kitchen. He did enjoy her apple pie. Maybe he could put the bags aside for a bit–right next to death’s door. In case he needed them.

    She helped him to his feet, his arm draped around her shoulder as she helped him to the kitchen. After she guided him into the chair, she kissed his cheek and brushed the damp hair from his forehead. In the presence of her radiant smile, his lips curved upwards.

    “Want some ice cream on that pie?”


    And they ate in silence. At times holding hands. At times immersed in awareness of each other. Until the pie was gone and she cleaned up the plates, the clink of silverware a musical note against the running water.

    “Getting late, hon’; better get to bed.”

    He took a deep breath, wondering about how delicious the spices were that she put in the pie, wondering what the spices were, glad that she was there and that his strength was returning.

    “Better get you to bed.”

    He yawned.

    “And brush your teeth. We don’t want them rotting.”

    He smiled, “No, I guess I’ll be needing them for a while.” He stole a look at the door. “What should I do with the bags?”

    “Ah, leave ’em there. We’ll go through them later. Maybe give some of it to charity. Maybe throw some of it away.”

    “I don’t need any of it.”

    “Oh, don’t be so sure. We might find some valuable stuff there. You were taking it for a reason. Maybe some lessons. Something to share with others. Make their lives a little easier.”

    His yawn grew wider. “Yeah, a lot of lessons in there. And a plan. A good plan.”

    She kissed his forehead. “Tomorrow, big guy. Tomorrow.”

    And as she snuggled next to him, he thought, “Cherchez la femme. Non, j’ai trouve la femme.”

    And he heard the sounds of an angel’s wings settling in for the night.

    Much love,


    ps: not that this story is verbatim, not exactly, maybe a bit of license. But, what fun is life without a little license?

    Have fun guys.

  130. I feel very lucky to have been able to partecipate to this very special moment!
    Mosey is like the “first lady”. Her care, sweetness and effectiveness is beyond belief!
    All my best wishes. You guys are a power team!!

  140. Congratulations to you both! You deserve all the hapiness in the world. Love, Naomi

  141. Congrats to you both and I presume the Rev Rinder performed the ceremony, yes?

    There’s a certain vertically (and sanity) challenged person I’d love to have been watching when He received the news. 🙂 Wicked of me, I admit.

    But, even better, I’m sooooo glad for you two to have taken this step and I wish you all the happiness for your future – you DESERVE it.

  142. Congratulations, Marty and Mosey. May you live happily ever after.

    There’s nothing like seeing true happiness, well earned and boy you’ve both earned it!
    I’ll take this over the glitzy,hyped, false PR of the church anyday.

  147. Martin Gibson

    I just had the cog regarding DM and the 2D. He has no children, right? He has ordered the murder of others, I dont think thats too strong a description when abortion is enforced. He splits up marriages, and deprives couples of pleasure. Secondly he has ensured CLO staff, through low income of orgs are fed pig slop. Only money bringers are rewarded. LRH had kids, children bring sanity to people, they just do… So much theta. If you are inclined to having the first indie baby from an indie wedding would be awesome! Although I guess you’ve been practising lol, anyway – that would drive DM berserk. Cant haves on other re food and babies is classic SP, abberative personality trait. So , again if you are so inclined, it would be cool to see a little “Marty” or “Mosey” in the future. (I just laughed imagining a response like – “OK, working on it”. Have a wonderful and happy marriage!

  148. One of my posts the other day that went missing said this; Mosey, you have turned Marty’s dark edges into silver linings.
    And in the deal, you got yourself a really interesting and wonderful man.

    I suspect the two of you have been nothing short of a miracle for eachother.

    No more shacking up ,eh? Haha.

    I’m so happy to see this news.

    Wishing you both good roads and fair weather, poetic faith and rock solid TR’s…

    Much Love, Victoria

  149. all the best ! yous look alive and vibrant great stuff.

  166. Wow! Marty and Mosey, best wishes for lives full of ARC and U.

    My dear spouse and I made a bargain when we married to work on smoothing out each other’s rough edges, and she got the tougher job. However, she also got my undying loyalty and commitment to improve.

    The wind may howl and the wolf rage at one’s door but a stable 2D is a constant comfort.

    (LOL: I mis-typed that last word as “confront” before correcting it!)

    Thanks to all of you who expressed congratulations and good wishes, and songs, and poems, and even short stories. You all are amazing. We’re off to do more ceremonies with family then disappearing for a couple days. Hopefully, with a little help from our friends we’ll have an informative and interesting post on Independents Day weekend up tomorrow.

  175. Marty and Mosey,

    My most sincere congratulations! You are a beautiful couple!
    This blog is THETA CENTRAL!
    I am thrilled for both of you!

    Finally got in session after 5 years and my smile has returned big time.
    Thank you Trey and thank you Marty for being there and doing what you do!

  176. I loved your story. What an absolutely beautiful work of art.

    Two incredible theta beings have united. Perfect!

  177. Dear Marty and Mosey,

    “Look at the stars,
    look how they shine for you
    and all the things that you do.
    Yeah, they were all yellow…”

    (like the roses at this wonderful wedding, that were all yellow…!)

    I love seeing this photo! It does capture at least a little bit of your glow but I will say that live, wow, lightbulbs in the room were secondary.

    Mosey, you are one of the most beautiful brides I’ve seen and, Marty, you were twinkling star sparks!

    You are both ever radiant, and a sanctuary for each other as you’ve created a sanctuary for thousands around the world, me, and for LRH’s gift to this world.

    The 8th Dynamic … see how it shines for, with, around, by, and of YOU…and everything that you do ☼


  178. The LRH marriage ceremony is beautiful! and Mike Rinder ministered it in the elegant, graceful sensibility that is his soul.
    I was moved and inspired by the poetry and sanctity of responsibility of the ceremony. And Christie was beautiful, so steady in her creation and management of a large event, making a behemoth amount of work look effortless.

    Congratulations, love and respect.

  179. Damn that’s awesome! Congrats to you both. Now let’s see some babies! One at a time is OK. 🙂

  180. Self A Ware

    Congrats you two!!!

  181. Cat Daddy—
    I *love* that song! What a perfect serenade! 🙂

    Could you tag the hyperlink to those photos on, please?
    I tried searching for them but failed. (Perhaps there are others who read this blog who would like to see them too.) It’s just easier.

  183. Congratulations to the lucky couple!!!!

  184. one of those who see

    It’s really late. Just reading
    All the theta comments congratulating
    Marty & Mosey. Last comment
    Is from Penny Kreiger”Finally got in
    session after 5 years and my
    smile has returned big time.”

    Well done!! That was the icing
    On the (wedding)cake!

  185. Best wishes and postulates for a lifetime of happiness. Congratulations!

  186. MissedGarbage Watcher

    Congratulations, Marty and Mosey!

  187. Best Wishes from all of us here. Enjoy your honeymoon. We look forward to your getting back and filling us in.

  188. Every noble knight deserves a beautiful maiden and you certainly got yours Marty. Congrats to you both!

  189. Marty, Monique, this wedding,


    If any higher on the scale, I think the whole place would have as-ised. Piece by piece, disappeared.

    All that would have been left was the Independent Scientologist banner, suspended by itself, with a gentle flutter, to let others know we were there.

  190. Wow. That is exactly it. I couldn’t agree more.

  191. becomingAware

    Such a beautiful theta picture of the four of you. Every time I see it I smile.

    Enjoy each others companionship and have a wonderful life.

  192. one of those who see

    Hi Jim,

    Got it. Wow!

  193. One good Diana Krall song deserves another:

  194. Sarge, I asked for you…I wanted to give you a hug, and I’m guessing you got it anyway because we felt you there.

  195. Jim, You are a living poet, Life is your medium. Wow. I loved that description … you sure can make the ephemeral visible. beautiful revisiting

  196. Pirate and Pirate's wife

    Congratulation! You guys are so bright. Bless you all.

  197. Bob Peterson

    Congrats on your happy condition! Blessings upon you and confusion to you enemies. -Bob Peterson.

  198. Mr & Mrs Mark “Marty” Rathbun….

    Félicitations pour le mariage
    Congratulazioni a tutti e due sul tuo matrimonio
    Felicitaciones a usted tanto en su matrimonio
    поздравляю Вас, как на ваш брак
    Herzlichen Glückwunsch an euch beide auf Ihre Ehe
    מזל טוב לך גם על הנישואים שלך

    In other words, Congratulations to you both on your marriage. This is resonating around the world and it seemed appropriate to add the international flavor here… XOXO

    Love, Eileen

  199. Another Layer

    More! More stories! More beautiful weddings! More, I say! 😀 😀 😀

  200. Larissa & Yakov

    Wedding Bells!

    Поздравляю вас, и желаю здоробя, по вечное дружество и конешно, непреривной лыбви!

    Dear Marty, Congratulations! We wish the new married couple happiness, health, friendship and everlasting love.

    It’s really wonderful to hear of Independent Scientologists living wholesome lives outside of of Co$.

    Best of luck to bride and groom!
