Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow
I was receiving Dianetic auditing at ASHO in 1980 from my boss, who was doing her internship. Well, I was having a grand old time until one day I show up for session and get pulled into an office with some tech terminal who tells me that I can't continue with the auditing.We even used to believe that, fish did indeed swim.
On a more serious note, I always thought that the purif was only for those who had done drugs?
Unless they've changed that one too to open the doors for more potential income.
I balked and told the guy I didn't need to do it. I even remind him of the policy that says you never interrupt a student or pc who's in the middle of a major action. No go. He produces an HCOB that says everyone must do the Purif. He points to the word "everyone" and says, "You see that? It says EVERYONE, which means you!"
I was so upset that I walked out of the org and didn't go back for a solid year.
No, there's no forbearance for those without drug histories. The organization compels all of their members to do that rundown.
One last bit to my story. I eventually succumbed and returned to LAFDN to do the Purif. After thirty days of no change, I realized I'd already 'run out' the residual drugs in my system while working on a loading dock. The C/S writes me back, "I'd like to indicate that you ran the drugs out of your system in life."
So I was right all along. I knew I didn't need to do the Purif.
I could have smacked somebody.
