Christmas and Castles Made of Sand

What of all the lobbying, litigating, intimidating, and enforcing of the Corporation?  In my view, so much building castles out of sand.

Jesus said, per the King James Bible:

And He said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

Luke 11:46

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.

Matthew 19:24

From the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran:

Then a lawyer said, But what of our Laws, master?

And he answered:

You delight in laying down laws,

Yet you delight more in breaking them.

Like children playing by the ocean who build sand-towers with constancy and then destroy them with laughter.  But while you build your sand-towers the ocean brings more sand to the shore, 

And when you destroy them the ocean laughs with you.  Verily the ocean laughs always with the innocent.

But what of those to whom life is not an ocean, and man-made laws are not sand-towers, But to whom life is a rock, and the law a chisel with which they would carve it in their own likeness?  

What of the cripple who hates dancers?

What of the ox who loves his yoke and deems the elk and deer of the forest stray and vagrant things?

What of the old serpent who cannot shed his skin, and calls all others naked and shameless?

And of him who comes early to the wedding-feast, and when over-fed and tired goes his way saying that all feasts are violation and all feasters lawbreakers?

What shall I say of these save that they too stand in the sunlight, but with their backs to the sun?

They see only their shadows, and their shadows are the laws.

And what is the sun to them but a caster of shadows?

And what is it to acknowledge the laws but to stoop down and trace their shadows upon the earth?

But you who walk facing the sun, what images drawn on the earth can hold you?

You who travel with the wind, what weather-vane shall direct your course?

What man’s law shall bind you if you break your yoke but upon no man’s prison door?

What laws shall you fear if you dance but stumble against no man’s iron chains?

And who is he that shall bring you to judgment if you tear off your garmet yet leave it in no man’s path?

People of Orphalese, you can muffle the drum, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing?

L Ron Hubbard from The Creation of Human Ability:


By this it is meant that an idea or opinion is, fundamentally, superior to space, energy and time or organizations of form, since it is conceived that space, energy and time are themselves broadly agreed-upon considerations.  That so many minds agree brings about reality in the form of space, energy and time. These mechanics, then, of space, energy and time, are the product of agreed-upon considerations mutually agreed upon by life…

The freedom of an individual depends upon that individual’s freedom to alter his considerations of space, energy, time and forms of life, and his roles in it.  If he cannot change his mind about these, he is then fixed and enslaved amidst barriers such as those of the physical universe and barriers of his own creation.  Man thus is seen to be enslaved by barriers of his own creation.  He creates these barriers himself or by agreeing with things which hold these barriers to be actual. 

And on an aesthetic note, Jimi Hendrix:

Have A Merry Christmas

  1. Awesome Marty, you and Mosey and Chiquita and Tinkerbelle Have a very Merry Christmas also!

  2. just love Jimi…
    Just had a perculiar thought – what if we didn’t care about the RCS and its members & just got on with the business of going free.
    When push comes to shove and those sandcastles tumble into the sea I know who would regret that we had that viewpoint – responsibilty seems to be a strange and perculiar thing to apply to this universe, yet it is the way out.
    Jeeze some people make it hard.
    Merry Christmas.

  3. Just a stray thought from an interested bystander: growing up I was told that in Jesus’s day there was a gate called “The eye of the needle” because it was so narrow. The only way a merchant could get his camels through it was take everything off the animal, and then make them crawl through on their knees.

    An apt image, given the subject at hand IMHO.

  4. Thank you Marty and wishing you, Mosey and family a very Merry Christmas! I must say that I feel blessedand honored to have you both as friends. Thanks for all you do 🙂 Shannon & Hiro

  5. Merry Christmas to you and yours Mr. Rathbun. And the truth has set you free, methinks.

    “That so many minds agree brings about reality in the form of space, energy and time. These mechanics, then, of space, energy and time, are the product of agreed-upon considerations mutually agreed upon by life…”

    From the Factors: “…and admiration is so strong its absense alone permits persistance.”

    More and more people disagree with the lying, heartless money-grubbing, beating, slapping, belittling, trapping, altering, starving, sleep-depriving, conniving, mestifying and aborting.

    More and more people agree with encouraging, helping, charitable actions, compassion, competence, granting of beingness and living with the truth.

    One can admire an “enemy” yet still remain pan determined over his own role in the game of life. It is my christmas wish that one david miscavige will come to admire his own folly ( thereby as-ising its persistance) and alter his consciousness and role accordingly.

    It is also my Christmas wish that those trapped in david’s cult begin to look.
    And that Independents everywhere have a happy Christmas and a very successful 2012.

  6. it has been another great year away from the suppressive RCS and this is the year i came out on Marty’s site-I have made alot of friends, done alot of auditing and just had fun.Merry X-mas. Love you all.

  7. Castles made of sand never stand.

    Truth does.

    Castles made of sand never stand.

    Truth does.

  8. Li'll bit of stuff

    Sherb , What you are saying, is undeniably true and it also
    happens to be “difficult to have”

    Were it plausible (given one’s pecuniary situation, as an
    example) to dispense with the harsh realities of tending
    to ever increasing demands of balancing an “ethical
    existence” with its “counter effort” wholesale man made
    landslide into the abject poverty of orchestrated slavery,
    itself, seemingly countered by adopting an “unethical”
    set of purposes, shortcuts and values, which we know, leads to yet deeper traps and degradation …….

    .Ultimately…we’re still faced with the daunting task of
    having to have ‘eventual’ interaction with the source of
    said slavery This of course is the stomping ground of
    THE Ruler/s of MEST (Heavily aberrated beings,of the
    TRACK reference) some old, some new.

    Although I have not ( yet ) travelled the route which you
    and Marty apparently have, I never the less have connected an enormous number of dots (lying around)
    which have restored me to KNOWINGNESS

    Marty, like you, I can also understand the OBVIOUS AWE with which RON regarded KAHLIL GIBRAN. I truly believe his boundless vision, has contributed enormously, to MANY, including me,becoming aware enough to
    grasp the naked truth of one’s own IMMORTALITY
    ” THE PROPHET ” truly frees ” the Soul ” AMEN

    Thanks for the COMM with you wonderful Guys

  9. martyrathbun09

    Beautiful Les. Merry Christmas to you, Anita, and the rest of your comrades.

  10. martyrathbun09

    Shannon and Hiro, the feelings are mutual. Have a great holiday.

  11. Thank you for these great words of wisdom. Truly an appropriate text.
    Merry Christmas to you all.

  12. I love you folks……………

  13. Beautiful!
    It does just takes changing your mind.
    The truth of this blog has helped me change my mind many times. I’ve been walking toward the sunshine stripping away so many falsities. It’s so good to be able to look without those fixed barriers.
    Marty, Mosey, Mike…Thanks for helping me get my life back!
    Merry Christmas and much Love, Laura

  14. My favorite quote from Jimi, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace”.

    More Jimi:

    Merry Christmas everybody!

  15. Merry Christmas Ingrid! Much love to you and yours from the Campbells.

  16. Merry Christmas to you Marty, to Mosey and your beloved Chiquita and Tinkerbelle.

    It’s been a wonderful year for me, in large part thanks to this community. I reconnected with two old Sea Org friends who had “disappeared” from my life over 30 years ago, strengthened ties I’ve made here with other SO friends, made brand new friends I never knew of that’s to connections here on “Moving Up” and developed understandings of LRH due to shared perspectives by others far more knowledgeable than I am of LRHs fundamental axioms and factors.

    It is my heartfelt wish that all of us enjoy great happiness, free from suffering, embracing a spirit of equanimity, free from bias and may our goodwill, like a ripple on a pond, expand throughout the universe.

    With love,

  17. The holiday season is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate and give thanks for our many blessings.
    I wish my Indie friends and those that read and post on this blog many blessings at this Christmas Season

  18. Very true, Les.

    Reality is the sum of our agreements.

    And to illustrate the truth if what you say, and since Marty quoted the Bible, I would like to point out that the ongoing game on this planet is: “Make the clock run true”. That is to say, that since about 60% of the planet’s human inhabitants identify themselves as either Christian, Islamic or Judaic, we already know how that story is supposed to end. And by the way, if you’ve noticed, the clock on that story is pretty much running true right now:

    With that in mind, what you guys are doing, what Marty and Mosey are doing, what all of the people delivering standard LRH tech on the planet are doing and what all of the people that are contributing to the motion of Clearing the planet are doing is our best chance at creating a pro-survival reality and future.

    Thank you and Merry Christmas Les – and keep up the good work. Mankind shall owe you and your fellows a debt of eternal gratitude.

  19. Thank you LDW for saying this so beautifully.
    Love and Peace to all this holiday. Thank you all for being here…

  20. Christmas Eve as a boy I went to Midnight Mass. It always seemed to me, with my body jittering from being up late and with too much excitement in the air, that that time was the most spiritual. An agreement that life could be on a higher plane.

    Thank you for all who participate and move all of life to a higher plane. I am rich with your creation.

    (Marty, Mike, Shannon, Jackson, Sinar, JB, Chris, all those beings I worked with there, those of you who lurk, those I’ve forgotten, Merry Christmas. Peace, joy, struggle and accomplishment and the demonstration of competence are you…and so much more.)

  21. I have come a long way these past two years.
    While Miscavige and his sheeple have been building their castles in the sand, I have been building a cathedral in my soul. It’s a beautiful thing and eternally mine.
    Thank you M & M and all of my friends for this spiritual melting pot. It has helped me to cross many bridges that were difficult to cross.
    Have a very Merry and free Christmas with as many loved ones as possible dear friends.

  22. I had the same thought.
    The church is already dead – it took me a long time to get that but now it’s true for me.
    The ocean will sweep away the rest of the debris – it’s only MEST.

  23. I wrote this Christmas Song many years ago (with my ex-husband). I wanted to post it as a message to you all. Enjoy 🙂

  24. Good to know where that came from, cJ.

  25. It’s hard to realize it’s only been since last February that we came out on Marty’s site! So much has happened that the time seems longer. Merry everything to everybody!

  26. We = hubby and I.

  27. Hey Li’ll bit,
    I believe whether we like or it or not or even aware of it or not, mankind is at a turning point or more appropriately stated, is facing a reckoning of his own behavior; he truly doesn’t need anymore whole track incidents.. LRH made it pretty obvious I reckon that mankind in his travels has bought himself by technological magic a little bit of breathing space in amoungst the rigors of survival in this universe. The past is well summerised in the History of Man at a base level, it’s what we do with this window of opportunity that is important, re KSW1.
    8,200 years ago the basic data of the Scientology philosophy was introduced in the upper highlands of India (ref. The Perception of Truth tapes, Tape 1 Introduction of the Qs) those that had that data booby trapped it even then by giving procedures which if followed deny abilities. Mysticism is rich in materials but the procedures in it need to be very carefully handled and evaluated. Scientology as a standard unaltered set of procedures will do what is says but with people like DM and others who have influenced it have also booby trapped it.
    There is only route, and by the sound of it, you are already on it.
    There is only one set of finite data regarding Scientology – Q’s, Logics & two sets of axioms plus a list of scales in Scn 0-8. All the rest is extrapolated from those bascis. No other science I’m aware of comes even close to reducing its data to simplicities like Scientology does.
    My personal evaluation after 25 years being involved with the stuff was to look at what data LRH said was standard when he wrote KSW1 in 1965. That was where the subject was doing really well with Saint Hill stats to back it up. I treat the terms, ‘breakthough’ and ‘streamlined’ with extreme caution as they are buzzed up marketing buttons.
    From 1965 to 1978 the Bridge was pretty well kept the same – how come it needed changing and changing again and again.Bit fishy hey?
    However, there are two sides to the Bridge and both must be walked in unison – best of luck to you.

    To Marty, Mosey and all who attend here,
    Joy, Sky and I wish you the most joyous of holidays, and that the coming years be filled with peace, health and prosperity as we travel our individual paths to freedom.

  29. Wow Sammy, what a fantastic piece of music. Do you still write songs?

  30. Wow Sam! That is very touching.
    Thank you for that gift. 🙂

  31. Hey Marty, Mosey and Chiquita,

    Merry, Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!

    In 2005 when I “self checked” myself into Qual at Flag on OT V saying: “It’s not that hard to do this.” referring to not getting an F/N indicated when I completed a process…

    Well, all the staff in Flag’s Qual scattered (they knew what the problem was. I was not the first person to complain about over-run.) and then I sat in a giant room by myself reading some references, that I knew very well. But, nothing explained the over-run.

    I just couldn’t understand what was going on. I had 35 years a fabulous auditing and then it all went down hill. This was 2005.

    So, I gave up.

    Then, in January 2010 I learned from you of the existence of the arbitrary 3 swing F/N that DM forced into Division IV and V.

    Thanks so much for the help. This has been REAL help, because it is help out of the reverse Scientology that is practiced today.

    I can’t thank you enough. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year!


  32. martyrathbun09

    Our pleasure. Have a wonderful holiday and New Year!

  33. martyrathbun09

    Have great holiday and rewarding New Year.

  34. martyrathbun09

    Beautiful. Thank you Sam.

  35. Scott
    Placi always wrote the music and I wrote the lyrics. The collaboration ended when our FRIENDSHIP was ended by the church. It’s a poignant time for us as our girls are only just learning that this song exists and was written for them at a time when the future looked so beautiful. There has been a lot of pain since that time. But now we are all on the path to fully healing from the damage that was done to our family and becoming strong again. Perhaps the songs will return also. We shall see 🙂

  36. That was fun!
    Merry Christmas Snow Queen

  37. Midnight mass!
    What a lovely idea!
    That’s where I’m headed Christmas Eve!
    Merry Christmas Tigger and Lana x

  38. Dear M&M,
    You have touched many lives with your love, the application of standard tech, truth and with creating a wonderful space here where we can all come together and enjoy the true friendship. Thank you for all you have done and still doing. We love you and wish you a very healthy, joyous and prosperous Xmas & 2012.
    With Love,

  39. Happy Christmas to you all.
    Thank you to Marty for this Blog and all the people participating here.
    I learned a lot in the past two months just by reading the posts and comments from you all.
    Thanks for Moving On Up a Little Higher…

    Climb up over the top.
    Survey the state of the soul.
    You’ve got to find out for yourself
    whether or not you’re truly trying.
    Why not give it a shot?
    Shake it, take control
    and inevitably wind up
    Find out for yourself
    all the strengths you have inside of you.
    – Jason Mraz from “Song for a Friend”

  40. Merry Xmas Marty and Mosey and all you other trouble-makers!! From Linda and I we wish you all of your dreams to come true for this Xmas.

    My tradition is the attached Xmas card. Its mainly for your gals. But we guys can learn from it too (how to be ultra cool).

    ML Tom and Linda

  41. Tony Dephillips

    Merry Christmas Marty and Mosey!
    And happy holidays to all my friends around the world. I wish you all the best year ever.
    Tony and Marie-joe

  42. I would like to also express my fond wishes for wonderful Christmases, or however else you may celebrate love and friendship, in a sphere of spiritual kinship.

    I have no way to adequately express my feelings for the astounding joy and theta that is this community sustains. This community, and all of its contributors, has/have created something truly special and uplifting.

    I would like to also thank L.Ron Hubbard for providing tools and insights that have been the basis that bonds this group of beings together.

    Thank you Mosey and Marty for simply being you, and for all those you have touched and have somehow eased the process of “moving on up a little higher.”

    This Christmas is extra special because of you all.

    Eric S

  43. Karen,
    I wish you could have gotten it to snow here! My first chance for a white Christmas and the weatherman blew it! Oh, well, God Jul to everyone!

  44. Li'll bit of stuff

    Super aware, art thou, my friend and thou sharest of
    thine own cup as a sage doth from the heart. I doth
    thanketh thee, for these gems of further wisdom which
    further do shineth THE WAY

    JEEZ, Sherb, I could EASILY get addicted to “this stuff”
    it sounds so “HOITY-TOITY”, lots’a luv & fun Li’ll bit

  45. Recently I have been re-reading “a New Slant on Life” by LRH and some words of wisdom in the book caught my attention, as follows.

    “Romantic novels teach us that the hero always wins and that good always triumphs. Now, it so happens that the hero doesn’t always win and that good does not always triumph. On a shorter view we can see villainy triumphing all about us. The truth of the matter is that the villainy is sooner or later going to lose in an entirely different way that the villain expects. One cannot go through life victimizing one’s fellow beings and wind up anything but a trap —- the victim himself. However, one doesn’t observe this in the common course of life. One sees the villains succeeding everywhere, evidently amassing money, cutting their brother’s throat, receiving the fruits of the courts and coming to rule over men. Without looking at the final consequence of this, which is there just as certainly as the sun rises and sets, one begins to believe that evil triumphs whereas one has been taught that only good triumphs. This causes the person himself to have a failure and actually causes his downfall. The safe way to intend life to go on happening is the way life goes on happening. A much healthier attitude is to change life where one can change it and not be heartbroken because one has not changed it further. In other words, one can intend to change life for the better and can succeed” —- from The Anatomy of Failure, A New Slant on Life.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season to all of you.

  46. Li'll bit of stuff

    Marty, Mosey, Chichita, Tinkerbell & Oscar(?) as well as
    MR, WW, Carcha, Sherb and in fact ALL who have accepted
    my open appreciation of your Beingness and even those who
    haven’t (that IS your right), this message is simply to convey
    that YOU are ALL REALLY SPECIAL and deserve the warmth
    and sincere and collective LOVE, coursing through this period
    I do sincerely appreciate ALL your wonderful efforts and posts
    which,after all, if not always positive,or THETA, yet, ( by default) STILL, enable us, hopefully, to “move on up a little higher” Non?

    Time now, for windin’ down and just Chillin’ out with those we LOVE & CHERISH, HEY ?


  47. And Merry Christmas Sam 🙂

  48. I wanna wish all Indies, including those who will soon join us, a merry and delicious Xmas!

  49. And of course, there’s William Shakespeare. “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”

    Merry Christmas!!

  50. Have a great Christmas to everyone at Movin on Up!!!!!!!!!

    “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who builds his house on the rock.
    The rains came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against the house; Yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
    But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who build his house on the sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

  51. Happy Christmas to all and a Very properous and safe New Year

  52. Beautiful!!


  53. George M. White

    Yes, castles out of sand. Mr. Moth-cavige please take heed of

    “Soon, when angry tempests lash,
    Wild and high the billows dash.
    Thus if Nature’s changing face
    Holds not still a moment’s space,
    Fleeting deem man’s fortunes; deem
    Bliss as transient as a dream.
    One law only standeth fast:
    Things created may not last.”



  54. George M. White

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all Indies all over the planet!

    Much loving-kindness
    and Metta ( Ancient Pali word for loving-kindness)


  55. George M. White

    Wow, great message.
    Much Metta,

  56. George M. White

    Marty and Mosey,
    Happy Holidays! Hope to meet you in the coming year.
    Both of you were “beyond impressive” during the ‘seige of Texas”.
    This blog is priceless – great contributions by many talented thetans.
    I learned enough to fill an ocean.

    Much loving-kindness to Marty , Mosey, “Indies”, LRH, Mr. Moth-cavige,
    OSA, and all corporate scientologists.


  57. Sam, what a beautiful talent you have. Awesome song, thank you. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
    Love Carol

  58. I really hope so. It is a beautiful tribute to your children. You both have had many awakenings this year…no more koolaid in the house! Your best revenge against the pain the church inflicted on you all, is to flourish and prosper on ALL of your dynamics, living that hope for a brighter future.

    Your courage, honest, strength and tenacity have been one of my favorite parts of this blog. Keep doing what you’re doing…only bigger! 🙂

  59. I hope so – that’s an awesome song. Thanks for your Xmas message – very cool.

    A very Merry and Peaceful Christmas to Marty and Mosey, and all truth-seekers on this blog and elsewhere. 2011 has been a hell of a year. Got a feeling 2012 will be even more of an adventure!

  60. Great post, great comments, great “sounds!” These tend to recharge the batteries. Happy holidays! L, Rachel

  61. I don’t know if you folks know that Chapter 3 “Consideration and Mechanics” that included that quote above was removed from the new Scientology 0-8.

    The second paragraph above was my favorite. I read it while at a graduation at flag after my L-11, people came up and hugged me with tears in their eyes.

    I was totally surprised when I got my new copy and it wasn’t there. I even called to complain. The answer “They probably put it somewhere else.”

    I still wonder why???

    And of course “I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!”

  62. I joined this blog a couple of years ago, mostly interested in ensuring that REAL Scientology would be able to stay the course of destruction the church set upon it. Through the efforts of a few souls the truth was disseminated…people heard it, they listened…and thought (sometimes quietly, sometimes long) and eventually found their own truth and their own voice. I no longer feel any concern about Scientology’s future. It is here and now with the Independant Scientologist and it will continue to grow as it has been proven time and again that it cannot be killed off by any amount of SP activity presented to it.

    This blog, that has established a place to communicate freely and an opportunity to share ideas, expand and/or change viewpoints has been very helpful to me. The freedom to inspect, choose to accept or waste as I determine has unfixed so many uncertainties of what is okay or not okay to do in life. The thought stopping keeps peeling off, layer by layer. It is a joy to have my own viewpoint without being concerned of its acceptability. As more and more people communicate, another begins to listen and there is hope that they too will one day experience those layers coming off. To all those who post or lurk on this blog…thank you for being there…and communicating. Happy Holidays!

  63. Thanks Sinar, beutiful song. Feliz navidad, prospero año y felicidad indeed and merry christmas to Marty, mosey and all the decent persons of this blog.

  64. on a lighter note

    DM the shortman, is a real nightmare they say,
    he created the hole and the few who know
    how he came to life one day.
    There must have been blackmagic in
    that wholetrack that they found,
    for when they viewed it entirely,
    he began to flail around.


    DM the shortman,

  65. Joe — It’s in COHA. As for why, presumably because it isnt a Code or Scale. It’s not lost! 🙂

  66. Very cool. I admire your strength in making it through this ordeal. It has always been my experience that highly creative beings suffer more from traumatic losses in life because their affinity for life is so much higher in the first place.

    Thank you for blessing us with your talent. Your girls are lucky to have a mom like you. Let us know if you write any more songs!

  70. Another stray thought, from another bystander;

    Re: the quote from Jesus, “And He said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers”, wherein the word lawyers is more accurately translated in other versions as “religious scholars”, or “scribes”.

    This brings a different interpretation to Jesus’ words; that the supposed experts on religion are not genuinely in service of their putative goals.

    Perfect quote for all of us who took at loss at not “saving the planet”. Lets focus on helping whom we can, where we can. Its very rewarding and a game we can truly control. Let your concience be your guide. Be brave. Be giving. Karma will take care of the rest. Those here I admire are too numerous to list. Thank you for all you do. Merry Xmas.

  77. You’re welcometh.
    The basic tech and philosophy of Scientology is there for the taking by anyone. DM & some others have gone to great lengths to muddy it and deny it to the people of earth. Their goals are somewhat easily exposed by application of the tech (that is what is missing in the Orgs – application!) and the criminal fears one thing above all others – open exposure of their crimes, especially to their victims & if they ever attain equal status, well they really blow a fuse or two.
    Ron Hubbard made it quite plain in the legacy of the tech to make it your own. It’s not all that easy as you have to rise above group agreement to some degree but The Code of Honor and the Creed of a Scientologist help in this regard.
    The reactive mind is a powerful thing but it follows certain patterns exactly so it can known about and it can be erased, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
    If you are new to the philosophy I ask of you one thing – be aware of the (often hidden) demand for perfection in others, absolutes are unobtainable and mental ridges are such sticky things. Understanding is a wonderful thing.

  78. I told you so (haha). “Religious Monoply” is such a contradiction in terms on so many levels. And monopoly in anything only creates a no-game situation, which weighs on everyone including those who own it. Playing tennis with oneself isn’t much fun. Just as we beings like to have a datum of comparable magnitude, we also like to have a choice.

    The principal source of money for the Co$ is no longer tech. It’s just charitable gifts, and Miscavige is doing a very creditable job as fund-raiser (but he’s lying, the Bridge no longer exists, and the Co$ is just treasonous to the society and the people in it, a stop).

    But the resolution of the Co$ isn’t so easy, because there is a standard of technology to be maintained. I would like to see some consensus on an “end game” develop. IFA has a loose system of accreditation, so one has some notion of who one’s auditor is, who one’s course sup and C/S are, etc., and it is free-market. But of course Indies (later arrivals outside the Co$) want their thing. I’d suggest that now is not the time to start another fight. What is appropriate now is intelligent coordination to provide access to Scientology.

  79. All of you here on this blog have my very best wishes for a wonderful Christmas, Happy New Year and a joyous Holiday Season! I am happily reunited with my son; we are in great communication, and we went to the movies together last night! Our entire family is getting together for our Christmas Eve celebration, Austrian style, for the first time in years! We will miss my mother, the author of this wonderful celebration, who passed away the day after Thanksgiving; but I think she’ll be there, in spirit, happy to see her family together again! She died knowing that my son and I are reunited. DISCONNECTION IS CANCELLED IN MY FAMILY!!!

    I have worked long and hard to bring this about, but the courage, information, and support I needed to do this, came from the members of this community, on this blog, and from the standard tech I received as a result. And of course, from L. Ron Hubbard, upon whose technology was based every move that I made, to bring about this happy state of affairs. For this, I will be eternally grateful to all of you! So thank you, Marty and Mosey, for giving us our virtual “meeting place” to all come together, and share ideas and support for one another. And, for any of you still suffering from not being able to communicate with loved ones, you have my Tone 40* Postulate, that in this coming year and by next holiday season, you will be reunited with your loved ones and friends, also. I have a campaign planned for helping this along, as i want others to share in the happiness of being together with loved ones again!


    All my love,
    Catherine von Ach

    Thank you for a wonderful year of Moving on Up a Little Higher. Have a Wonderful Christmas.

  82. Les, in keeping with your intention of admiring Miscavige, he’s done a great job of destroying the Co$. We all still have a real fight on our hands, and we all have egg on our faces. But he may have done us a favor (a hard one). It is a living practical demonstration of how easily irresponsibie use of a science can creep in, and what happens when it does. It also has shown how “Religious Monopoly” doesn’t work. We should have learned that from the Spanish Inquisition days, but life has its gambles.

  83. This happened earlier this month, and best I know hasn’t been reported here.

    10th Annual International Freezone convention- Los Vegas

    This has been to the best of my knowledge the largest FZ conference ever, some
    70-90 people, including 30-40 Rons Orgs members from Russia and Europe. The host was the genial Rey Robles, who also gave two talks, one on how to find your soulmate, the other how to find your purpose in life.

    Two awards were presented by Rey, one to Trey Lotz for his 40 year plus span of
    continuous field auditing, and the other to Tatiana who has done so much for the Freezone, putting up websites for many auditors, interviewing many old timers on video and recording on video FZ conferences. She also at the last minute had the hat thrust upon her of simultaneously translating all talks into Russian which she kept up for two days!

    The first person introduced was Mark Bunker, a long time “old guard” critic. I was very happy to see this joining of critics and the FZ who both abhor the abuses of CO$. Mark was intertested in finding more people to interview for his upcoming movie project
    ” Knowledge Report”.

    The theme of the conference was ” Para-Scientology”. This theme was kicked off
    by Mary Freeman who relayed some of her unusual experiences, such as the cleared theta clear ability to move objects by thought alone. On postulating and discovering that despite having studied all there was to be studied at the time, she was invited to do the new class VIII course, was so overjoyed that she inadvertantly moved a pencil across the desk!

    Now I’ve always happened to have an eye for the ladies, and this convention was remarkable for how beautiful and youthful some of these highly trained and audited tech gals are. I don’t know Mary’s exact age, but she started doing Scn in 1962 she said. 49 years ago, and was about to start college I believe. You do the math. She looks like a movie star at the peak of her career! Then there is my dear friend Candy Swanson [ aka Purple Haze] who I happen to know is the exact same age to the day as myself, and I’m well retired. Candy still looks like the young surfer/rock chick she is. Then there is Erica Hauri, looking younger and more beautiful than when I last saw her 6 years ago, and is now a grandmother. All these ladies are class VIII and at or near the top of several bridges. You’ll be able to see them all on video soon.

    Hank Levin gave a talk on his various meters and on the second day a talk of how
    he and his wife used them to contact those departed.

    During one of the breaks I saw a meter dial, some 12 inches in width, displayed on a laptop. Went to investigate and there was a sign saying ” Free Stress Test” 🙂 Had a demo of this meter which was quite sophisticated. There were 3 or 4 different dial displays, the usual bells and whistles of FZ meters, and then some I believe, and a place to display the C/S for the session. This was called the ” Theta- Meter”.

    Max and Erica Hauri then spoke about Rons Org and the CBR bridge. One very interesting item, and new to me was that they refuted the idea, possibly OSA black PR, that Captain Bill got his tech telepathically. Max did in fact say the political materials, Sector 9 bulletins for example, were delivered telepathically, but not tech. This should be considered definitive in that Max and Erica worked with CBR and were with him till he passed on.

    Trey Lotz gave a very elegant talk on how to find a partner, using the ” Sanity Scale” from ” Org Series 19″.

    As an example he compared the ” Hiring step” to dating. Here one recruits a temporary secretary, or implied one may do this several times, and when one finds one
    suitable she becomes a very valued Chief Executive Officer, with full board voting rights,
    a chauffeur driven limo, access to the company jet and checking accounts, and apartments in New york, LA and the Hamptons. In other words a wife. She then gets into the training step as everyone knows thats what men need at this stage. 🙂

    Incidentally I got the chance to briefly chat with Charise Mongiolla of “Scientology Muster” fame. Lovely girl, as cute as a full spec Lamborghini. Dunno if she’s fixed up yet and if not I advise any young fellow to quickly get into the hiring phase before she’s snapped up and off the market. 🙂

    John Rafanello aka ” The Magic Thetan” gave a couple of talks, one on his incredible OT experiences, many with cars, and how his early experiences in scientology took him from being a twenty five year old virgin who couldn’t easily talk to girls to one that girls
    started asking him for dates. Not sure if this counts as paranormal, but the girl he was with is many many years younger and looks like she walked off the the cover of “Vogue”. His second talk was on how to make contact with ETs. This was billed as a workshop, but was more of a talk as there was no time for a full exposition, but we were given a few group processes to get some idea. I found this quite interesting. John is a great entertainer!

    There was a second talk by Max Hauri on problems with CO$ harrassment and the very effective steps taken to combat that, and which will be expanded upon. In earlier days
    at least one group was shuddered into silence and vanished. Now a server has been set up in the Netherlands where religious freedom trumps copyright. This built upon the many legal actions of CO$ v Karin Spaink and Zenon Parnousis. The last of which CO$ withdrew from as it was about to lose. The Dutch courts then initiated actions I can’t recall full details of but the result was CO$ can no longer sue Karin and Zenon re copyright, or go to the European court and this appears to cover all similar situations. The CO$ has not been able to take this server down, and if I understand correctly one can mail this web entity and request copies of materials for study purposes.

    Next we had some entertainment, Clive Baldwin gave us some songs popularized by
    Al Jolson. Clive is blessed by a voice almost exactly like Al’s.

    Then Candy Swanson told us some of her history of using tone 40 8C. I often refer to her affectionately as a “dumb blonde”. I can get away with that as we’re friends. However apart from being class VIII she has a couple of university degrees. This is NOT the stuff of “dumb blondes”. She just looks the part. 🙂 She told of some of her experiences using tone 40, especially re getting passports returned in around 1968 when
    foreign nationals were not allowed to study in the UK when St Hill was” Flag”. She was on the Apollo with LRH and some time later when the AO had been moved to Edinburgh, she
    was the only review auditor, and had to handle the very long back log of stalled cases etc, and just kept on auditing, kept on auditing until all were handled. She was then told by the Chief Executive that she could have anything she wanted, she need only ask. So she asked for her then husband Ira Chaleff to be taken out of the RPF or whatever at St Hill and to join her in Edinburgh. Candy relayed some of her good experiences with Captain Bill, who always created a high ARC environment. Candy was instrumental in the creation of the original Celebrity Centre, and was the only auditor initially and just audited everyone
    who arrived. I was very happy to meet her again and invited her back to my wonderful
    hostess” The Oracle” and her family’s place for dinner, along with ” Lakey” who I met for the first time after some years of sharing a forum.

    Then we had the highlight of the convention, a panel of 5 class VIIIs who answered singly or severally any question the audience had. There was Mary Freeman, Trey Lotz,
    John Rafanello, Max Hauri and Candy Swanson. No punches pulled, totally free
    communication from all concerned. And then for me the most inspirational moment of the whole convention was the comments into the microphone of another class VIII, Erica Hauri, on the subject of love. All these have been videoed, and I look forward especially to posting around the video of Erica. 🙂

  84. Robert,

    Rey Robles (Class VIII) has studied and documented changes made to the original Bridge of the mid 1970’s. There have been changes other than just the infamous F/N alteration. The F/N is only one of several indicators for an EP: Cognition, very good indicators, and an F/N. If I had a PC chattering happily away about how now he sees toothbrushes in the light of human kindness and now he can love his parents who made him brush his teeth … did I tell you about the time hahah I tried to brush the dog’s teeth … I call that an EP. If the PC brightens up on the indication, then that’s it. One audits the PC, not the darn meter – it’s just a tiny battery with a dial, a tool, not a master.

    I join you in wishing a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Marty & Mosey, with thanks for their work, and best wishes to all. May a New Year bring new love, realized hopes, and new vistas to us all.


  85. Merry Christmas Marty and Mosey and everyone else who visits this blog for a regular dose of sanity. Lots of love from a sunny, warm Australia. This time of year always has me thinking of my wonderful friends, the ARC, the spirit, the bond that we share. I wish you all the best for the New Year!

  86. FCDC Class of 1974

    It has been a better year since I found your blog Marty. The ARC stood as a beacon. It is wonderful to find Ron’s tech as a common denominator again. Unfortunetly or fortunetly I recognized the truth decay that dentists could not remove and I blew. I see what you and your wife go through and I want everything to be fixed. I will be there where and when I can. I will watch, and I wish you and all the other bloggers a joyus holiday, may there be more holidays in the future.

  87. Agreed 🙂

  88. Exactly Ingrid.
    Thank you for the perfect duplication – you would have totally failed the Golden Age of TRs (Trained Robots).
    Merry Christmas – you’re one hell of an auditor. xxx

  89. beautiful. Thank you.

  90. Lady Min
    Well done on getting your son back. Enjoy your first Christmas together in freedom.

  91. Congratulations and Merry Christmas Catherine.

    Well it looks like “Commando Girl” beat the enemies of love once and for all. Well done on putting your family back together.

    Have a wonderful and prosperous new year!

  92. Big Thanks and Season’s Blessing to you Marty. Mosey and all you fine Thetans who post here. And a Happy New Year!

  93. Sam – A very Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year to you and all your family and friends. – Carcha.

  94. Wow, Sam. I would love to read the lyrics. When you have a moment.
    Merry Christmas to you and to everyone reading this.

  95. Great post Marty! Thank you for the holiday inspiration! Came at a very convenient moment! Hey everybody, In Chinese Astrology 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. The Year of the Dragon will start on 23 January 2012 and end on 09 February 2013.

    The Dragon is the fifth sign in the Chinese Horoscope and signifies luck.

    Hubbard says luck is a high volume of theta.

    So, this next year will be great for the likes of us very lucky beings!

    Happy Holidays and my very best and warmest regards and luck channeling
    to all!

  96. Sherb,

    My perceptions as regards the Bridge are as yours, and the workability all but ceased. Maybe you are able to phrase this up accurately: it seems to me that a dilution took place, a dwindling spiral within Scn, and most became concerned with control, and many became stuck. Stuck in dead-end orgs, stuck on the Bridge, stuck in their own universes, (‘stuck’ financially), and controlled BY the tech and Scn, instead of controlling it. There is a big difference between control OF and control BY. The data and tech were designed to be used as a science to enable an individual to not just seek, but to actually find for himself, his spiritual awareness, establish his own ethics, assume responsibility, and live. Today I see people satisfied (or disappointed) with achievements which are utterly mediocre compared to the original.

    The data was so hard to get, so very slipppery and elusive it makes the proverbial mercury seem like epoxy, yet once found, is so surprisingly simple (as well as astoundingly profound), it seems to be almost as elusive to really understand its depth. “Man is a spirit”, for example: many just say, “Oh, yeah, well … I knew that. Hey! Did you see the Yankees?!” Auditing is not complicated, but it does require duplication of the PC, care, smarts. A tool (or a science) only belongs to the individual who can master it.

  97. I am so glad that you are reunited with your son, Lady Min! What a wonderful thing to read on Xmas Eve.

    Marty and Mosey: Thank you for this platform and all your many efforts. We are all in your debt. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Everyone: Thanks for your posts, which have provided much support and information. A day that passes without checking this blog seems empty now.
    Theta transcends time and space here.

  98. Marty & Mosey.

    Merry Christmas to you two and everyone else here.

    “The term ignorance means the absence of enlightment, which is to say delusion.” Takuan Soho from The Unfettered Mind.

  99. Merry Christmas, you guys. I’m thankful for what you all are doing here.

  100. Marty,

    You’re a daily part of my life. Perhaps only five minutes here, twenty there, but it’s just awesome, what you, Mosey, Mike and many others are doing.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  101. On a cold mid-winters night
    Through the darkness shines a light
    On a frosty Christmas night
    There’s a love that’s burning bright.

    In each corner of the world
    Children’s voices can be heard
    Asking God to make things right
    In a prayer for peace tonight.

    For every tear there is a smile
    If we can love for just a while
    If we can take away the rage
    If we can turn another page

    For every man who dies in pain
    A child of hope is born again
    And if the world is up-side-down
    Then we can turn it back around.

    Lighted candles on a tree
    Shine for hope and liberty
    Christmas choirs across the land
    Sing together hand in hand

    For each child from East to West
    Lay our burdens down to rest
    If our hearts should go astray
    Christmas stars will light the way

    For every tear there is a smile
    If we can love for just a while
    If we can take away the rage
    If we can turn another page

    For every man who dies in pain
    A child of hope is born again
    And if the world is up-side-down
    Then we can turn it back around.

    For the children of Christmas
    We can make the fighting cease
    For the children of Christmas
    Let us turn war into peace.

    We can make a new start
    With love in our hearts
    For the children of Christmas
    For the children of peace.

  102. Merry Christmas to you too

  103. Li'll bit of stuff

    ………….So then . who? I mean …seriously….WHO ?
    actually needs….Shamology, Madmanology.or ANY
    other version of “Religious Monopoly” that this little
    dwarf can conjure up with his perverted “fixations” ??

    Very nicely, eloquently summarised, Carcha………
    there’ll be much MORE of this sociopath’s antics to
    keep us amused, in the year ahead, so………….

    Topple….topple …. little star…. how we…..wonder.

    JUST HOW FAR ???????

    Xmas Day is here!! Time for Giving & Lots of CHEER

    REAL luv, ARC,popcorn & nice “goodies” to You–Li’ll bit

  104. Likewise Jim, longtime no hear.

  105. Gorgeous song and music, Sam. You are one of my favorite posters. Merry Christmas and the best New Year ever to you and yours.

  106. Hey Carcha, I agree with you too. The Bridge is right there, hiding in plain sight.
    LRH beat the drum on workability all his working existence. Many I have known see the tech as something hard to understand or seem to require a lot of explantion just to see a simplicity. I cannot phrase it better even to myself no matter how much I try without evaluating bordering on invalidation. I sup’d for years and one outstanding observation was so few actually pushed through to become auditors. Yet at Saint Hill in the 60’s even the Execs were chomping at the bit to get trained. What was different then? LRH was on lines and what tech his C/Sd with and what checksheets were available then seem to be a far cry from what followed after he went off lines. Plus, per study tape 1, better than 50% of the subject is how you do it, not the data. Get rid of the experienced and you get rid of the workability.
    It seems to me the full enlightenment available with Scientology is not available via other determinism. The Saint Hill Org must have been really something. Probably a unique group phenomenon very hard to duplicate, even though one hell of a lot of Policy was written so it could be duplicated – Policy/Admin needs to be applied as well – dilution is a good term you used.
    I agree it was diluted, time and time again the results were more and more morphed into finance and control orientation rather than tech results. Gradient scales use is a double edged sword, it works for the negative as well.
    My data evaluation made me look at where the subject was last doing well and I made my own observations at what tech was dropped off/out.
    I briefly had the help of few wonderful terminals, unfortuantely both have died recently but were around in those heady days of Saint Hill.
    I don’t happen to believe the alternate route to Clear is alternate at all. I wont go into it here but it presented a reality of the Bridge which is unshakeable – R6EW properly done is a wild ride for which you are never the same again, you just can’t be.
    The Bridge is walked from where YOU have a reality on it – for God’s sake don’t buy somebodies elses’!

  107. That was a LOT of what Jesus was about (if one focuses on the outer aspects of his ministry and not the inner, spiritual, esoteric I-am-the-son-of-God stuff. I believe in most of that stuff, so I am kind of biased)

    Most of his interactions with his own religion was chastisement or out and out anger with their practices. The only time he ever became anything close to violent was when he threw the merchant lenders and money changers out of the Jerusalem temple. To paraphrase the incident, “you have made it a den of thieves.”

    He didn’t want to start a new religion. He wanted the old one to work right. For the widows and orphans, not the bankers and religious experts.

  108. Merry Christmas to the entire family of Indies around the world. This is the holiday to celebrate with family and I consider all of you family. One of the results of this family gathering – this blog – is the wins and gains of Scientology.

    “The only things created about Scientology are the actual books and works in which Scientology is presented. The phenomena of Scientology are discovered and are held in common by all men and all life forms. There is no effort in Scientology to out-create each and every thetan that comes along. It is, of course, possible to conceive Scientology as a creation and to conceive that it is overwhelming. It should be viewed otherwise. For it is intended as an assistance to life at large, to enable life to make a better civilization and a better game.” LRH – FOT

    I thank all of you for your help in creating this a better civilization and a better game. Thank you. Enjoy my friends and family.

  109. “And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?” – Dr. Seuss

  110. Lovely, thank you

  111. Tony DePhillips

    Here are some Russian Scientologists visiting the Int base recently.

  112. Merry Christmas Sherb!

    Thank you for your reply. Helps me fit pieces together. There’s a lot you’ve said there! The study tapes were the 1st ones I went for. I’ve found auditing someone is really a piece of cake – all that charge is just begging for a terminal to flow to, and the processes take the lynch pins out so fast you have to stand back or the laughter bowls you over. Moral is a big factor, gradiently getting bigger results, doing “lower Bridge” in full, finding, watching the bowling pins go “Poof!” – domino effect on mental mass, PC looking at you like you’re the first person they’ve ever seen.
    As you have said, auditing with intent to full EP (R6EW – Clear) and not compromising with OT is “hiding in plain sight”. Like thetans in bodies, really OTs hiding in plain sight. I hate to sound naive, but I’m going to have to ask you – I’d never heard of an “alternate route to Clear”??
    Thanks for the Christmas gift – makes me smile!

  113. Hi Li’ll bit of stuff!

    Spot on! It amazes me the dupes hang up in the Co$ when they could get much better quality – and I mean GET it, not just dream about it “someday .. someday”. I see these supposedly smart guys gifting $10,000,000 at a time when they could have the genuine line up for affordable prices outside … it’s just mind boggling. And the slaves getting paid nothing.
    My day is made already, reading what Sherb wrote above. Have yourself a Merry Christmas, too!

  114. Thanks to y’all on this blog. You have given me back Scientology that is kind, compassionate and enlightening. My wish for the new year is more and more will find their way to the truth.

  115. The Sea Org leaders should be Class 12 Case Supervisors, able to competently service FSO and FSSO public as C/Ses and auditors and act as excellent repair auditors (CMO crackerjack unit, the RTC tech sidechecking people, all failed, but that doesn’t mean this shouldn’t be still done if one’s gonna fix the official movement). Flag Ship Order “Command Intention” of the late 1960s or early 1970s said this in principle.

    Miscavige hobbyhorses the GO era defense/legal/finance mindset.

    A non expert practitioner shouldn’t be running a spiritual therapy practice movement.

    One major difference between LRH and Miscavige, is that most human beings would go “in session” were LRH to sit down with them and do the Scientology spiritual practice. Miscavige’s auditor beingness causes patient/preclear fear.

    Heber at least could present a suitable auditor beingness, and not instill fear in those he spoke with. Me, I’d let Heber, as ‘bad off” as he is, just take over ALL master of ceremonies jobs for all Scientology events.

    Can’t have a terror instilling leader of a therapy spiritual practice movement that is supposed to succor people spiritually.

    Miscavige is Mr. “Swinish suspicion” who constantly permanently breaks the auditor’s code by instilling fear in the patient/preclears. He’s bullied all from correcting him on any tech or admin mistakes he’s made in decades.

    Miscavige would be hard pressed to pass legitimately his TRs video, due to his swinish suspicion auditor’s code additive beingness, his brusque dismissive attitude would take considerable Mood TRs to drill out of him, but no one dares cram or correct him.

    Compared to LRH’s speaking voice in LRH’s final Ron’s Journals, that’s what the movement has lost.

  116. Li'll bit of stuff

    Sherb, ( & Carcha! ) First off, Happy Christmas!!

    Thank You both for the simple, yet concise detail by which you actually DO manage to accomplish ” some ” amount of Duplication, ( at least with me, anyway. )

    Indeed — ” how we perplexeth, to bringest to those in need, just how bountiful,would be their wisdom, were they, to but casteth their eyes,upon the treasures of life & the soul, which YOU offereth, through the fruits of vast labour & love, for them to share, but, alas, sadly, they duplicateth not ”

    Not having personally, had the “broadening” of LRH
    Tech, Auditor, C/S or Sup. training, with it’s esteemed
    VFP, certified and highly qualified practitioners of the
    “Tech ” I never the less, had the privilege of supporting
    encouraging and celebrating the life changing wins,
    that were my dear wife’s as she trained her way up to

    Certain debilitating illnesses and difficulties, have made
    our own progress up ” the bridge,” all but non existent,
    although my wife still does an enormous amount of
    voluntary work, involving the broad use of LRH Tech, where she has literally hundreds of persons reliant
    on her “services”

    Having said the above, I have hardly waivered in my
    personal study & application of “THE” philosophy of
    LRH and constant reference to the ORIGINAL basic
    books and Wonderful TR’s as daily LIFE TOOLS!!

    The BEST thing to have happened to me, though,
    this (almost finished) year, was the discovery of
    our wonderful new facilitator of ” Oh so refreshing
    and reinvigorating FREE,OPEN communication,”
    MARTY RATHBUN’s powerhouse blog and it’s
    DYNAMIC by product;- “The Independents” (Amen)

    You both, for me, are Shining Examples of the
    POWER of LRH TECH, & Philosophy, as you continue
    ‘walking the talk” with obvious care,love & ARC, which
    are synonymous with the original goals & purposes
    of LRH.

    Thank YOU, and also for being my friends! Luv, Li’ll bit

  117. Bravo! My heart soars!

  118. Marty, Mosey, Mike, Steve and the Mighty Indepenedents, it has been a hard year but, as the old Apollo Troupe used to sing when things were going right, when Scientology was actually helping many people, when people who had been helped were helping many other people, when it was safe to go into a mission or an org expecting to get what you had been promised,

    “We are going up while the world is going down”

    The world going down in this case is Corporate Scientology (far removed from the work and efforts of L Ron Hubbard), and the Independendents are going up Today.

    Scientology in it’s pure form will obliterate it’s cheap copies every time.

    Selling altered Scientology is as stupid as selling water in a bottle and calling it the best Gin in the world!

    With these positive and encouraging words I say to you all: Merry Christmas and a Happy, full of of success and genuine Scientology 2012 Year



  119. Merry Christmas, Marty and Mosey. I personally appreciate all you are doing. Here’s to a great New Year!

  120. Thank you 🙂
    Have a beautiful Christmas!

  121. unbelievable! DM you lose big time. Yeah for the rooskies!!!!! …..they don’t back down. Merry Christmas to all!

  122. Absolutely Beautiful thank you for sharing.

  123. Really nice work!

  124. Sam,
    That is so heartfelt and wonderfully clean of thought. Thank you for being just who you are – a good and well intentioned being playing this game. Enjoy your family through the holidays.

  125. Merry Christmas Carcha & Li’ll bit.
    If you do a bit of research in the Red Vols look for the Bridge as LRH set it out in 1965. Later that route to Clear was called “alternate” for those who didn’t go clear on NED.
    I won’t say much more than that except to say a whole bunch of tech just sort of slipped away and the Solo route with the group of processes encompassing R6EW dropped off the Bridge. Also Power processes and the auditor training necessary also slipped out of the upper orgs. It’s becoming a lost tech especially the expertise to supervise & C/S it.
    I really don’t like the executive C/Sing that has crept in, it really is suppressive and messes cases up.
    It seems a lot of people have trouble with GPM technology. With the way the Briefing Course has been altered I don’t doubt it but the wonderment of that technology is as expansive as an OT can postulate.
    All I did was stick with it as that is what is real to me and communicates as the Bridge. I did a couple of years of Solo NOTS but that route in DMs Church never made much sense to me, I couldn’t stomach someone elses idea of how and what I’m meant to cognite on. As I’ve said before you walk the Bridge from where you have a reality of it.
    The best advice I reckon is get your fundamentals squared away, that is study tech plus TRs and if you can arrange a co-audit, all the better. The Bridge must be kept open. Marty & co have done a great job at holding their space but everything the indies do that is standard sure helps.
    Have a happy New Year too…

  126. Thank you too 🙂

  127. Great song Sam,
    I hope you will be able to get back to that kind of creation!
    Thank you.

  128. Thank you M+M+M and all contributors to this blog!
    With that wonderful quote of “CONSIDERATIONS AND MECHANICS” as a rock of truth we can only win from here on out. It is the BEST Christmas in a very long time! And we will still be here when the sand castles have washed away.

    Since I left the S.O, for years I felt like a ‘leaf in the wind’, and the only phone comm from the Co$ was to ‘come to an event’ or ‘requests for donations.’
    This blog, apart from all of the information, education, increased awareness has helped me get back on purpose. Life feels GREAT!:)

  129. Li'll bit of stuff

    AAAAAHH! Carcha!

    Yes, yes,yes,yes, YES!! ——– I Gotcha!Thanks!

    Let me say, though, that the sheer, unimaginably uplifting magic of seeing true DUPLICATION, unfolding ” right before one’s eye’s, ” is just SOOO special !!

    I feel privileged to have witnessed the beautiful
    “connection” between two beings, establishing
    top end ARC and it’s companion, resulting JOY !

    We’re due for a great year ahead, Luv, Li’ll bit

    Chuck, Hello and nice to “meet” you “blogwise”

    All so TRUE, so REAL amongst All that post their comments
    here. I can tell you’ve really felt this INSANITY first hand!

    This MONSTER is just so far “out of touch” with the TENETS
    of the object of his conquest ——-“REAL” SCIENTOLOGY,
    that he might just as well be from another planet,

    If, in fact he is, then let’s all collectively help him out, by
    arranging a ONE WAY ticket, to F— OFF back to from “whence ever” he came!! Hey ? guys ? Whaddaya say ?

    Let’s give him his JUST DESSERTS, Hmmm ??

  131. Li'll bit of stuff

    Sam, what a beautiful creation and tribute to
    your beingness and strength within you and
    I believe these qualities are already lifting you
    back up to heights that will perhaps even
    SURPASS the wonderful, heady days passed

    Sharing the selfless “caring” which is abundant
    in this virtual universe, can go a long ways in
    healing the cruel pain inflicted by this “Church
    of MADNESS ” and it’s sociopathic ‘founder’
    bent on his goal of mass spiritual destruction,
    for the selfish lust of greed and enslaving all

    I respect your need for ‘space to heal from
    this pain’ and that you certainly DON’T need
    any ‘restimulators,’
    In this regard, BUTTON pushing, is just sooo
    irresponsible and deserving of ‘contempt’
    for the ‘pusher,” in this case, ME and I need
    and hereby DO, take FULL responsibility for having thoughtlessly added to this (pain!)

    As this BLOG is essentially about being able
    to DECOMPRESS from and HEAL from pain
    inflicted upon us, I believe it is incumbent
    UPON each and every one of us ‘ INDIES ‘
    to convert ‘entheta’ to THETA, amongst all
    people of GOODWILL, so as to again to :-

    Move on UP a little HIGHER ! What say ?

    Sincere ARC, space & best wishes for 2012

    Luv, Li’ll bit

  132. Li'll bit of stuff

    Marty, isn’t this spontaneous outpouring just sooo very
    uplifting stuff??

    And in you, Mosey, I’m reminded of movie / muscle man, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous saying : ” What doesn’t
    kill us, makes us stronger ” I believe you have had the
    supreme test of this, so far, in standing by your man and in a unique way, have benefited in seeing the power of
    the man you love, in melding with your own, grow into
    something so far reaching and in so doing, showing THE
    WAY, in overcoming one of mankind’s most detestable
    little erstwhile dictators, ever, to betray mankind.

    Wonderful to see you coming through the ranks of REAL
    auditors, and doing your share of restoring sanity to an
    ever growing number of deserving beings.

    Marty can feel especially proud of you and I’m sure that
    he does

    Here , Here to M & M , we’re ALL here to support and
    grow with YOU

    My sincere Luv and appreciation , Li’ll bit

  133. George M. White

    Agree – the voice is the key in this situation.

  134. I truly wish we had an organization in place…

    It could have been so easy… bottom up…

    I am going to have lunch with an old friend still in the org .. it will be fun to see how brainwashed he is… I know he hasn’t gone anywhere on the bridge for years..

    He refinanced his house for the new org.. Hmmm I suppose sticking with it is now based on avoiding
    being wrong.

  135. Li'll bit of stuff

    Karen B, That is such a lovely, heartfelt, but simple
    tapestry of thoughts, which puts into words, what I think
    MANY of us have realised, or begun to / yet to realize.

    And looking ahead, there’s sure to be HUNDREDS
    more, streaming onto this wonderful THETA blog,
    ( courtesy of Marty,) as word spreads to the
    “suddenly homeless” “compressees” of the soon to
    be defunct CO$ –It WON’T be long in coming, either!

    Anyway you want to look at it — BUSY TIMES AHEAD!

    VIVA! the INDEPENDENTS –“Real Scientology-Again”

    Much luv, ARC & success to you in 2012 !!

  136. Beautiful…just beautiful.
