Welcome... May all your dreams come true!
Hello, great to have you with us!
I know exactly how weird and confusing the first months out of scientology can be, especially for a 2nd or 3rd generation scientologist. Speaking from experience: Its worth it, hang in there. In my case after the first 6 month or so everything became smooth sailing.
Great to see you are enjoying the real world. Feel free to say as much or as little about your experiences inside scientology as you like. Keep in mind people from the church might be reading the forum.
Having said that, its exciting to see someone who left recently and if you are willing to speak about your experiences, I'd be thrilled to hear how things change changed inside CoS recently.
I'd say you are on the right path once you stop thinking of leaving scientology as "a cycle"
Oh wow (I feel for you, I really do) and of course you need time ... anyone would.
I hope you know that you have friends here and will talk to us about any issues as they come up so we can hopefully try to lessen the load.
One day you must tell us how you found ESMB, I have never asked anyone that before but would love to know.
That's a nice toughtful post.Hi Raphael and welcome!!!
On the bright side, do you remember being told that if you leave Scientology you will die a horrible death, get run over suddenly by a bus, be doomed spiritually for eternity, or other such scare tactics? Or that the wog world is full of horrible DBs and evil suppressives, and you will be doomed to a life as a DB if you ever leave? Well, many on this board have been out for DECADES, and posting about their experiences. They did not get run over by a bus, are not all flipping burgers in MacDonald's, and did not cave in and die of pneumonia when they read OTIII on the internet. So don't worry.
Thanks.Sure ask me, I don't care anymore about what the "Church" wants... I'm free now.
Nowdays the church is a full time fundraising activity. Fundraising events every week. Churches are empty, ideal orgs too. The people that are going there are pretty much the same, very few people are new. I've been in the Sea Org in italy and Denmark, staff member in Rome.
I can hazard a guess at this one:Thanks.
1. Has the RPF really been abolished, or was that just some PR stunt and there is still somethink like an RPF (maybe under a diff name now?)
Following Steven Mango on you tube (and Leah Remini) has led me here and I have only been interested in Learning about the extreme criminal abuses of Scientology for one year and a half. I am not an ex-Scientologist but I feel like I can get something from this blog because I was in a 22 year marriage with a mental, Financial, and Legal abuser. Scientology Has to be taken down! It preys on innocent people. Also, the idea that young people and children who need and deserve support and protection are being hurt terribly -is particularly horrifying. They are naturally trusting of adults. How evil!! I know I have trouble with trust, because of the hurt I have, but I have gained tremendous knowledge about how Manipulation works. In the beginning I believed I would never heal and it did take time. Be good to yourself
The good thing is that now I really understand what freedom is and I enjoy it.
Scientology's bonafides as to being a religion are in good orderUnfortunately, most abuse of the cult ARE criminal, but their "pseudo religions status" protect them from any prosecution related to their mafia criminal conduct.
But, COS have yet been convicted in the past, in different countries, and L Ron Hubbard, the disgusting ballless fucker throw Her wife under the bus to serve sentence in place of him.
Aftermath show had a lot of testimonies providing records of criminal behaviors of Ron Hubbard, Misscavitch and the COS and it's many entities.
