Clear Announcement





That which I have wanted since starting in Scn in 1976, I have just attained. Last Friday evening, my auditor and I acknowledged the state. Nothing  could have been easier, cleaner or more the way that LRH intended as it was right then.


Though I could certainly rail against terminals and circumstance that kept me from this state for so long, I choose instead to be thankful.


To LRH whose brilliance and responsibility startles me as much today as it did the day I read my first book.


To my auditor, the amazingly cool Haydn James, whose expertise and dedication to task got us through. No Q&A, no bullshit, just standard application. I know it was standard because it was just that easy.


To the firm of Rathbun, Rinder and Hall (I couldn’t help myself) whose willingness to spread the word and take the heat for our movement remains unbending.


To everyone in the movement, every Indie everywhere who has the nerve to stand up and say “NO” to the little man.


And last though certainly not least, my wife Yolanda, who kept me going no matter what.


A little something Id like to share with you guys. It is a favorite show of mine and reflects what I’m feeling right this minute. Look and listen and try to ignore the credits 🙂





God, I miss the stars.

    What a wonderful way to begin this week!

    David St Lawrence

  24. Byron, what a wonderful success story! The state is a milestone and more stars await you. It was so good to hear of the success to those that move on up a little higher with the proper application of tech. Your picture shows the world the truth of it and the song is perfect. Thanks!

  25. Jean-François Genest

    Welcome aboard! My best wishes for a smooth, fast climb through the OT Levels.

    Congratulations, Byron! I was all teary-eyed when I saw your news. Tears of joy.

    My personal appreciation to Hadyn as well. Thank you for being there and keeping the real tech of Scn available for those with the courage and wisdom to have it.

    Thank you to both of your for the demonstration of flourishing and prospering. Indies will not be suppressed.

    This starts my week off beautifully. ml, Yvonne

  32. Byron, Congratulations and thank you for the beautiful success story! I know it has been a long held goal and you had disappointments and upsets – the story you didn’t tell – but like a true Scientologist, you never gave up and achieved your postulatel!!! Kudos to you!! And many thanks to Haydn, the auditor, who is delivering despite any reason he should not! Clear is a milestone on the way to OT, and the one that marks a very definite new life! Enjoy that new life, as we all bask in the glory of your win!
    Much love to you and Yolanda,
    Catherine Von Ach

    P.P.S. And thank you for all your acknowledgments to LRH and your auditor and all the people who say “NO” to those who would stop such accomplishments – that was great! Yes, we are standing up, one by one, and saying “NO” to suppression, and it is making a difference! Your State of Clear is proof of that! VERY, VERY WELL DONE!!!!


  33. Yvonne Schick

    ps. Loved the musical selection. Perfect!!

  34. Wonderful news Byron. Shedding tears of joy for you my friend. You made it!

  35. Congratulations Byron. Your song selection was just perfect.

  36. George M. White

    Advice to Mr. Miscavige, originator of the Texas war seige:
    ‘Suing for peace is an act by a warring nation to initiate a peace process in which the peace terms are more favorable than an unconditional surrender. Suing for peace is usually initiated by the losing party in an attempt to stave off an unconditional surrender”

    Sue for peace,
    Mr. Miscavige you have lost. I Highly recommend that you now orient yourself on the subject of religion as I have previously advised.

    Much loving-kindness,

  37. Fantastic for you. Congratulations.

  38. Hey Byron! Well done and thanks for communicating.

    Only thing is…you sure don’t look very pissed in that pic. Might want to change to “not so pissed anymore wizard.”

    Well done Hayden. The tech is alive and well in your hands.

    Les Warren

  39. Byron, congratulations! Well done on clear. Now the OT sections and then the stars await you.

    Haydn, you the man. Great job!

    ML Tom

  40. Congratulations, Byron! Your persistence speaks volumes as to how capable you are. And thank you Haydn, we are all proud of you.

  41. Byron: Wonderful news! Hearty congratulations and God Speed on your continued journey up the Bridge.
    Haydn: Fabulous work my friend. Keep up the great work!

  42. Congrats Byron! (Heck, I’m still trying to get my Life Repair in.)

  43. Awesome news! Congrats!

    “Rathbun, Rinder, & Hall”. Love it. Amazing things happen when you leave the firm of Dewey, Cheatham & Howe.

    Ad Astra, Byron!

  44. Tom Gallagher

    Bryon and Haydn,

    I found myself humming that ole song, Oh What a Beautiful Morning.


  45. Michael Fairman

    Welcome to the fresh air and sunshine. You smile makes the day that much brighter.

  46. Congratulations to the new Pre-OT and VWD Haydn & CS!

  47. Well done Byron!

  48. Nicely done Wizard!

    And you may not have to miss the stars much longer. Mass UFO sightings reported by legitimate news agencies (if there is such a thing as a legitimate news agency), are growing exponentially over the last two years…

  49. Byron-I am so happy for you-As an audiitor, I have helped people achieve Clear or restore their Clear state and boy it is wonderful. I am an LRH gal and standard tech is the way to go-as you said you know standard when it is so easy !!!
    Loved the song.

  50. Wow! That’s great Byron. Amazing persistence. And the ride only gets better.

    And congratulations to Haydn for this product.

  51. Congratulations! Thanks for sharing the great news. It was such a pleasure to meet you & your wife at the July 4th party. Big hugs to both of you. Marie-Joe

  52. Bravo!!!!!!! 🙂

  53. Byron,
    Congratulation!!! Beautiful success story. Your photo speaks volumes for yourself and standard tech being applied standardly.


  54. Tony DePhillips

    Way to go Byron and Hadyn!!
    Byron you have got two things forsure, persisitence and integrity and that’s an unbeatable combination.

  55. Congratulations to you, Byron, and to your auditor Haydn! I’m so happy that you are able to practice your religion outside of the dark influence of the CoS.

    Here’s hoping that about 40,000 more souls join you on the Outside. 🙂

  56. one of those who see

    Just beautiful Byron! Tears in my eyes. Well done to both you and Haydn. I loved this line you wrote “To LRH whose brilliance and responsibility startles me as much today as it did the day I read my first book.”

    Another Clear who brightens the world!

  57. Congratulations Byron. Love your Success Story.

  58. Very Well done!

    To the auditing team of Bryon and Haydn!

  59. Wonderful news.

    The best news is always news of a Clear or OT level completion.

    That is why we are here.

  60. Byron,
    you didn’t give up – and finally you made it – very well done !!!

  61. Byron Dawson,

    Congratulations!!!! Keep moving up a bit higher every day my friend!

  62. Congratulations Byron! Very happy for you… Well done Haydn, your PC’s happiness is tangible 🙂

  63. Fantastic, Byron!!

    Such stories as yours actually have this 25-years-lapsed scientologist sort of considering getting some pro auditing again.

  64. Another Layer

    Congratulations to you and your auditor! What great news to start this great Monday!

  65. Defender of Theta


    Going free is what it is all about.

    Many of us remember pre-Miscavige times, when there was not just case gain, but sometimes MAGICAL gains, in part because there was broad, group agreement on THETA, rather than (to quote LRH) “the rapacious gathering of MEST.”

  66. Defender of Theta

    Well Done!

  67. Defender of Theta

    Mr. Miscavige:

    Ethical leaders, when personally besieged, step down for the good of their group, even if innocent, to allow someone surrounded by less controversy to take over.

    That is the test before you today, Mr. Miscavige: if you reconstitute the seven boards (of CST, RTC, and CSI) and step down, you will demonstrate that you are a social personality.

    If you don’t, you will confirm to all that you place your own interests about the good of the group. In that case, you will be brought to justice. That is not a threat, it is a promise.

  68. Defender of Theta

    To those reading, who might be from OSA, and to other DM supporters, or those of you who are trying to sort things out:

    The world is moving forward and dictatorship is out-PR in today’s world. Dictators are falling left and right — earlier, in Yugoslavia, and now in Egypt and Lybia.

    The time has arrived to choose between 1.) LRH’s clearly stated intention for the end of one-man-rule after his death and the governance of Scientology by the seven boards (of CST, RTC, and CSI) vs. (2) the support of Mr. Miscavige’s continuance of one-man rule, in defiance of LRH.

    This can be a hard test, depending on your circumstances. I can only say, that as far as my eternity is concerned, I would want to be on LRH’s side.

  69. Thanks, glad you liked it.

  70. Thank you deirdresm!

  71. Thanks, it was a blast doing this with Haydn.

  72. thank you heather 🙂

  74. VWD Byron and Haydn.

  77. Congratulations!!!! 😀

  78. Thank you Mike, yea the old man was really onto something 🙂
    As for the little one I think the right passage would be:
    … blind, alone, and in pain…

  79. Thanks Moneca, Ill keep going, Im just too damn stubborn to quit.

  80. Yep, whose got a line on I to III?

  81. Thanks Jack! Im working on it.

  84. Thank you Steve.

    BTW I sent you something for the Indie 500 list, but it doesnt seem to be up yet, what gives?

    You persisted, my friend. Good for you!!
    Hugs to you and Yolanda, it was so good to see you both again after so long. Keep going!!!

    Haydn, nice product…very well done.

    This sure made my day… 🙂

    Oh, what a beautiful morning….

  141. Greetings and very well done to both Byron and Haydn!

    More good news, marking forward progress.

  142. Alex Castillo

    Hello Byron,
    From an old timer who has been there, congratulations. I can feel how you feel.
    There is a lesson I learned after many years of studying, learning practising and experiencing LRH’s Scientology
    It is a lesson that cn only be learned if you have an inclination towards the well being of the Human Race. and I hope DM and his followers will eventually learn:

    DM, think about this when you are sober. DM followers/employees: Think about this when you are collecting your “blood” money or when you are hoping Miscavology will turn you into a Super Human Being!

    With Love

  143. Alex Castillo

    And the above is a lesson that Marty, Mike, Mosey, Steve and many others, including me are working on passing on with the help of LRH’s work.
    Hasta luego mis amigos.


  144. Alex Castillo

    Dear old friend Roy,
    Remember what you learned from the old FEBC, Dianetics and the Tech you are so good at. I am sure there is a lot more you can say to help enlighten the people who are actually working against LRH’s Scientology instead of forwarding it. Your neck is safe:))

  145. Thanks GL! I dont have a match but how about a hydroxyl torch, it cuts titainium?

  146. Thank you very much, its all been such a blast!

  147. Carol,

    Thank you so much, you guys are so much fun on this blog.


  148. Eileen,
    Thanks! It was great to see you again too, we’ll have to make the next get together, hopefully NOT in Texas on the 4th. Thought I was going to melt.

  149. Alex Castillo

    I just want to add that I am NOT one of those described by LRH in the quotes below:

    THEETIE-WEETIE CASE, 1. he operates in a totally psychotic way while being totally serene. The valence is all the way up at tone 40 and the pc is all the way down at minus eight. (SH Spec 2, 6105C12) 2 . a “sweetness and light” case at the extreme top of the graph who will go to graph bottom before the case starts up again as though the profile were a cylinder which when it goes off the top, then appears on the bottom when people are in “serene” valences (meaning they are wholly overwhelmed as a thetan). (HCOB 5 Jun 61) 3 . is high on the OCA/APA yet makes no progress. This is because such case6 believe you ought to know what they are thinking about, so every moment around them you are missing withholds. (BTB 12 Jul 62)

    — L. Ron Hubbard
    Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary

    THEETIE-WEETIE, 1. Slang. it’s from England, means “sweetness and light” (but they can’t face mest or any outness). Cannot go deeper into the bank than a thought. (LRH Def Notes) 2 . a person with a terribly high OCA who is absolutely for the birds. The Chart of Human Evaluation will tell you the truth. (7203C30)

    — L. Ron Hubbard
    Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary

    But those who are in that particular valence for reasons of their own, ought to stop and think, think, evaluate their actions and act accordingly.

  150. Byron & Haydn, THIS is what it’s all about! Congrats to you both!!

  151. Thanks Magnolia (great name!)

  152. Awesome news Byron, congratulations and very well done! Every time I hear that someone has moved on up a little higher I can’t help but feel a huge sense of gratitude to all who fight to preserve LRHs tech. Clear is an amazing state! I am so happy for you! Beautiful song, so fitting of your declare.

  153. Wizard, I am happy for you! Great job on persisting to Clear.

    A bit off topic, but The Boston Globe has a review of Hugh Urban’s new book about the Church of Scientology.

  154. Happy for you Byron

  155. Congratulations!! There is nothing quite like the feeling of going clear and having that acknowledged by ones auditor.


  156. And here’s a real “scoop” from Tony Ortega of The Village Voice:

    “Having stated publicly that disconnection does not exist, Scientology’s missing PR person Tommy Davis is caught on tape trying to get one of Marc Headley’s employees, Shane Clark, to quit his job or be declared an SP and cut off from his family and friends. Davis audio taped the conversation to potentially use against Clark in the future. What Davis didn’t know is that Clark was
    taping the exchange as well.”

  157. Sam, isn’t that unreal? A person goes into the church and “goes Clear” but “Oh, oops! It looks like this week you’re not after all. OH! You have a $500,000 donation? Well guess what? You’re Clear again! {church staff laughing and applauding}. For God’s sake Sam can you imagine going through an experience like that. HOW can a person deny to themselves that he or she has gone Clear? That church is really beginning get on the wrong side of a lot of people! 🙂

  158. Erwin, is there an English version of your web site or is it only in Dutch? I was looking at you vitamin invention but I could not make heads or tails of it too much because it was all written in Dutch. I didn’t know of any other way to ask you except on the blog so maybe Marty will realize too that the whole web site is written in Dutch but US American Independents 🙂 would happen to like to read it in English, per se! 🙂 No offense.

  159. I think Tommy is having some domestic issues of his own right now. Really, Mike Rinder is logically the best terminal for him right now. He gave it his best effort but who can he relate to if not Mike? He came in from nowhere and tried to walk in someone’s shoes who already walked that road , for decades, thinking he was going to build a better road. He just didn’t think about the little troll under the bridge.

  160. And I hope he knows when he jumps, someone over here will there to catch him. With love and understanding.

  161. Thanks so much Karen, I really like the song too.

  162. Scott Campbell

    Regroup… What an absolutely appropriate term.

  163. DM blows 400,000 unable to complete a project.

    Where your donations go.

  164. Clearly unable to function at a simple desk job.

  165. DM’s weekly report:

    400,000 wasted via penalties for non production from WOGS.

    Out PR harrassing a teenager and a celebrity.

    Marty lost him in the shuffle.

    PTS underlings in a car wreck in a parking lot.

    Villiage Voice conducting a noisy investigation and exposing witholds.

    Aren’t you the royal upstat? Will YOU announce to the staff you are downstat?

  166. By the way, does DM have a graph or stats he shares?

  167. Bryan U,

    Thanks for the link. Shiver. Spent a bit of time viewing all the You Tube videos on sightings.

  168. WOW… Very good news!
    Bravo to you and your auditor!

  169. Thanks wh, I totally agree, it was just fantastic.

  170. Thanks! We had a great time and its so good to get acknowledged by everyone here.

  171. That is so awesome! I too am getting closer and hopefully by years end it will happen. I’m glad that there are so many of us still
    “moving on up a little higher” each day…:)

    Great job Byron

  172. You Harbour a nice snmile under that mustache 😉

  173. Byron (aka PW);

    Such an incredibly wonderful accomplishment. Thanks for allowing us to share in the win of you reaching your goal. 1976 was when I re-began my journey as well. I’m so very happy for you. You made my day. VWD to you, your auditor, the C/S and the team supporting this win of freedom. All the best in the coming days as you continue your journey.

    Chris Black
