Hi, I haven't been on much, so this is a delayed post. Sometime last year, I was contacted by a Scientologist while doing some shopping. Unfortunately, I didn't find out the full situation as I asked him to call me later and he never did. It was an odd call. From what I gathered, he was no longer involved with his local Scientology branch, but he wanted to continue to practice Scientology. By 'practice' I don't mean that he just wanted to continue to do his own thing, but he was asking for interactions that could re-create his experience with the Scientology corporation. Specifically, he had offered that I might be able to take on the role of a staff member - a personal ethics officer - and to help him from that angle. I was really unsure what to say or do. I'm asking for opinions to figure out what might have been the best approach, if he did stay in touch with me. On one hand, I could have done what he wanted and taken that role, assigning first dynamic conditions and such to hopefully help him to live his life without being under the direct influence of the corporation. On the other hand, would that not make me just as bad as the corporation? If I 'took the reigns' and kept him in the paradigm, making him continue to think like a Scientologist instead of thinking for himself, what good would that have done? It seems to me like a tough choice: bluntly refuse and risk him going back to the corporation for more mind control, or to play along and do what he thinks will help him in his life away from the org?
