You guys are kidding right?
I don't know what the subculture is like here, but I'll assume there's open mindedness and humor allowed.
Someone please tell me it's sarcasm and dry humor.
I haven't been around enough to know.
If it's not, then I must throw out what will probably be an unpopular observation.
Not that I mind being a stick in the mud
Some of the posts as so "spiritually" oriented.
And by "spiritually" I mean self oriented. Still absorbed by your own internal state. Both the feeling and meaning of it.
What's the big deal about "feeling at one" or any of that equivalent mumbo. It sounds like some of the posters are going for some sort of "EP", makes one practically expect the next poster to say, "thank you, your needle is floating". Come to think of it, probably should have just wisecracked that and waited to see if it was seen as being amusing or sarcastic and invalidating.
One poster did comment on trying to become a spiritual leader os something similar here. That's similar to my point.
"Though the human condition can never be erased, it CAN be observed. And to the degree in which you do this honestly and accurately, you will rise above the effects of unconscious thought."
Uhh.. "..effects of unconscious thought" Sounds a little reactive mind-ish to me.
I thought this was a place for ex scientologists.
Scientology is so much about your internal state, levels abilities etc.
Still trying to give yourself a psychic fix of sorts, or find answers. As though despite being an Ex scn the quest can't be given a rest.
This isn't a news site, but it seems like a continuation of trying to find the answers. At least it's free.
And don't get me wrong, this isn't said in a mean spirited way, but just a observation. Good news is that it'll will be a funny and ironic bonus if some here calls me invalidating or uses a some scn term translated out in to regular human English.
And incidentally, I can't believe I'm not on the SP list. How disappointing.
I'm happy for all you guys though, you got out.
No! No! Nooooooooooooooooo!
You're wrong! And stupid! I hate you! How dare you! Don't you know who I am?! I'll show you! You'll be sorry! This isn't over! Just try that again and see what happens! I invented the ex-scientologist! I'm like a god here! I'll teach you how to show respect! You stole that line from someone else! You're fake! You could never be as cool as me! Go back to WWP! Eat shit! Die!
I no longer suffer for lack of anyone's approval. That is the primary function of the ego -- to seek approval. And thus, it is the mission of the entire human race. See for yourself.
