The Real Current Church Situation
While in the Church, all of 44 years, I heard of OSA attacks on “non-believers” from time to time. Underhand and often devious but apparently effective to stunt the growth of the “squirrels” – so it looked!
Having come into Scientology in 1970, LRH having personally C/sed my OT3 and L10 at the first Land Base at Daytona Beach Florida, been on staff for 5 years and experienced huge wins from Standard LRH Tech and revelled in being part of a group with compassion, caring and excitement, It sure looked like the Church was the only custodian of Standard LRH Tech.
Over the years, as all of the Senior Management of the Church disappeared, the IAS became more demanding and the Ideal Org Programme upright and vertical – the compassion disappeared and so did the caring. The Church became a business.
I kept donating and going up the Bridge to OT8 – on completion I was disillusioned and disappointed. I felt introverted and harassed – something was very wrong – but it was Standard Tech being applied – or was it?
As the top Execs and Tech Terminals left, or were removed, especially those personally trained by LRH, the wins from the OT Levels became less apparent and more and more OT8’s got ill and did poorly in business. OSA’s attacks against the “independents” continued unabated.
Then one day I began to look and not listen and to my utter amazement I found there were more practising Scientologists out of the church than in, that tech prior to 1982 was the only Standard LRH Tech on the planet and that the bridge outside of the Church has results and wins not dreamed of by the church management and its parishioners.
Then I had the cog – current SO staff are young – none ever knew LRH and the early golden years of LRH’s bridge – all they knew was “command intention” and that Miscavige, and he alone, was Source and that it was ok that the Founder’s Tech had twice been changed by Miscavige.
The next cog was that OSA was losing the battle of killing off the independent field, as it has grown exponentially since all LRH tech prior to 1982 was put on the internet for all to access freely or apply freely. No more copyright controls and paying out exchange prices for services.
So I now understand OSA’s new game – keep parishioners subdued and terrified to look for fear of being declared with the horrendous aftermath of church enforced disconnection of family and friends. Most times unacceptable consequences. Gone is the compassion, freedom and power of choice. In is submission control and PTSness of parishioners.
