"Not Going To Make It"
Right On, HH, Right On!
I’m not gonna go into all the gory details here but “back in the old days” when I was the ED of a Service Org Flag, “Management” sent a Telex ordering me to do something that I wasn’t about to F’n do, no way, no how. I Telex queried the order and ignored it. The Orders Query was denied so I wrote a very long, detailed Query with relevant El Ron quotes from books, tapes and Policy and ignored the order.
While my dispatch was on its way to Flag, the Orgs Flag Rep got a Telex from the issuer of the idiotic and insane order to tell me that if I didn’t immediately comply with the order they were going to see to it that I was Declared, Expelled and Debarred from the Advance Courses Forever.
I said, “Fine. Go for it. If my eternity depends upon and includes complying to insane, idiotic and destructive orders like this then I don’t want to be in it.”
The FR went ballistic and stormed out of my office.
At that time the org had all Major GDS’s in 4-6 week affluence and 2 days later finished the week with a 2nd Highest ever GI,,,the Highest Ever having been 4 weeks previous. Needless to say, the order was forgotten about, the FR got a new uniform and a bonus because of the Orgs up-stats.
Honestly, I was surprised at how I responded to what was, in my mind at the time, a credible threat. I had responded out of pure instinct, from my heart. I have never forgotten that moment to this day. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, I had drawn my line in the sand re: Scn. A line that I would spend some more years living next to, never stepped over and, eventually, stepped back and walked away from…for ever.
Scn seduces you into living a delusion about your “Future” and your “Eternity”…who and what you’re gonna be, what you’re gonna do, what you’re gonna be “able” to do, the places you’re gonna be and see. It’s all so deliriously a grand time of a future. Some folks come to the point that they will do ANYTHING, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE to protect that future---a time and a future that never will be.
