Our last two articles received great response & attention from readers. We were pleased to see the number of folk enthusiastically engaging with each other despite wide and varied viewpoints on the issues at hand. It was encouraging to see people granting others the right to communicate their viewpoints – with very little moderation needed.
The common viewpoint of most folk following this blog is that DM has all but performed a hostile takeover of the church, engaging in a reign of terror and securing his position as “the Pope of Scientology” by getting rid of top church management and anyone who questions “Command Intention” including former top Church execs, OT8’s and other church OL’s.
Furthermore, he has repeatedly altered, re-packaged and re-sold the bridge whilst having successfully changed the focus of the church from delivering the tech into a money-hungry cult engaged mainly in amassing huge slush funds through the IAS and other campaigns including acquiring a fortune in real-estate paid for by the parishioners of the church. This has been a long-term carefully orchestrated PR caper aided by an army of lawyers permanently employed to protect & defend DM whilst he continues to make mincemeat from everything that was once good in the church.
A number of people who have left want nothing further to do with SCN and no longer consider themselves Scientologists. Some have taken a more extreme view and are very anti SCN, LRH and anything to do with the subject.
Many are still making their way through the labyrinth as they disentangle themselves from the church’s tentacles. Some have quietly slipped out the back door, others have publicly announced their departure and many brave folk have put themselves at great risk by continuing to whistle-blow by shining the spotlight of truth on DM & RCS.
And then there are those people who, having discovered the horrible truth, are disillusioned and feeling a great sense of loss. Although they still believe in and want to continue their SCN journey, they realise the church is no longer a safe space to do so. They are asking “what now?”.
This article is aimed at such people.
We have covered this topic previously, but we feel it bears repeating in view of the ongoing numbers of people leaving the church and the growing number of inquiries we are receiving from people seeking alternatives. Our South African readership has doubled since this blog started – this alone speaks for itself.
The good news is that the tech is alive and prospering outside the Church. Not only have many Scientologists fixed up their stalled cases and out-tech in very quick order, but they are now happily progressing up the bridge in a safe environment, free from crush-regging, incessant events and fundraisers.
BIC is pleased to announce that the full bridge is available and being delivered in South Africa. Below are two success stories – the one is from someone brand new to the subject (they have never been in an org) and the other is from someone who recently attested to Advanced Level 1 (Yes, the Advanced Levels levels are being delivered right here in South Africa!).
Success Story 1
“When I arrived in the course-room I was completely withdrawn and very, very low emotionally and physically.
I had been dumped by my girlfriend and I thought the entire world had come to an end. I could not understand how this course could help me.
After the first session and learning about the two golden rules to happiness, I immediately woke up to the fact that these guys are onto something.
Working through all the different understandings of integrity, ethics and the Code of Honour, I have discovered that I was failing in many aspects of my relationship. I have discovered that I was always blaming the other person for all the wrong-doings without actually looking at my own integrity.
Writing up my overts and discovering where I went wrong in the relationship and then taking the responsibility to acknowledge that the relationship failed, was a very sorry thought until I took ownership of my own misdoings.
Confronting my overts has freed me from guilt and shame. I now hold my head up high in the knowing and understanding that those faults were my own, and I am convinced that I shall never repeat the same mistakes again.
My ethics, morals and integrity now shine brightly. I am proud to own them, proud to put them out there and now wear them on my chest”.
Success Story 2
“What a remarkably simple yet powerful level. Such beauty in simplicity. I had an amazing time really!
My viewpoint shifted from singular body inflow perception to multiple viewpoint reality. That’s quite a change of perspective. We have been VERY conditioned to be a meat body – everything in society is so well crafted to keep us in it.
Advanced Level 1 helps to break all that. I feel more me, less restrained, have much more space. Space and the ability to mock it up and permeate it is a vital ability. Also a new fresh viewpoint on bodies and a high havingness in them without fixation is a wonderful bonus too!
LRH, you are a genius. To the staff, thank you for all your support – it’s well and truly appreciated so thanks a million”.
And finally, from further afield, our friends at Dror Centre in Israel continue to deliver miracles on a daily basis.
Below is an article and video they recently posted on their blog:
Moving UP the Bridge… from Flag to Dror Center » Free to do Scientology
In the short video below, Aviv Bershadsky, the Advanced Org I/C of Dror Center, presents Alexander Dantser, who is currently doing the Advanced Levels at Dror.
Alexander Dantser is the owner of a Russian cable communications company.He started doing Scientology seven years ago at the Moscow Org and later went to the Saint Petersburg Org.
Alexander attested to the state of Clear at AOSH EU in 2011 and was ready to start his OT Levels. However, instead of going up the Bridge, he was returned to the bottom of the Bridge for TWO years of various “flattenings”. And still he was not allowed to embark on the OT Levels.
In desperation, Alexander went to Flag to do the L Rundowns. However, even there the Church succeeded to upset him to such a degree, that he would never consider doing another auditing action within the Church.
After some research, Alexander found Dror Center and went there for a short visit to do his “Doubt Formula”. He liked what he saw and shortly came back for a much longer stay.
And guess what? He is now rolling on the Advanced Levels with great wins.
Here is what he has to say:
