    Dear Sister Connie,

    I hope you will feel better after your upcoming surgery.
    You have all my postulates for a speedy recovery.
    Now, if you don't make it go right to recover and
    end up dropping your body, please remember next life
    that I tried to warn you
    about being PTS and how Ron
    states that in order
    to go PTS you have to have out ethics
    to the SP. So, it all comes back to what I said, when
    I kept warning you that I was picking up overts in your

    space. So stop Q & A'ing and write up your fucking overts,
    but if you're dead I don't know how you are going to write

    anything, so you'll just have to make it go right somehow.
    Actually, I'm getting a lot of BPC that you even pulled me
    into your cycle. I mean you are totally becoming a fucking
    DevT particle on my lines and I'm just validating your downstat
    by putting so much attention on it. I know you are not a declared SP, so I can't really disconnect from you, but I just cognited that I can apply Ron's Code of Honor and not receive or send communication that I don't want. So this is that last time I am sending these stupid cards that my Ethics Officer made me send to you as "good roads fair weather". So just keep your shit off my lines because I not into having PTS people enturbulating my space. And that part about "Get Well Soon"--well I just wrote that because I got routed to ethics and needed to do a handling on you with "ARC" and other bullshit.

    ML,

    Your Sister Darlene

    Disconnection is bullshit and actually not possible, what these grandparents have
    done is to deny what can't be denied blood kin.

    Don't call it disconnection call it what it is "denial" of affection of love and support
    and don't let these grandparents and parents off the hook by giving even the slightest
    nod that what their doing is anything other than mean and selfish and self centered.

    There is no excuse under the sun moon or stars that can justify such incredible denial
    and lying to themselves, no crusade no ology or ism that holds any respect for truth
    would even attempt it.

    Simple advice to this poor deluded couple, be who you are Parents and Grandparents
    who give unconditional love and support, there is nothing more Grand than that :heartflower:


    Roots matter, blood matters, love matters, truth matters and no amount of meaness
    and hurtful words can change that, truth is you can't disconnect not possible, all you can do
    is deny which leaves you with a lie, and many broken hearts.

    No amount of sessions or squirts of seratonin to the brain can replace the love and respect
    of your children and grandchildren, what good is an eternity that lacks those things ?

    it's as simple as changing your mind giving respect and love to your family no matter
    if their choices agree or disagree with yours:thumbsup:

    Good luck to you folks and your family :thumbsup::coolwink:

    You are the tree they are the fruit and seed that came from you

    I wonder is anyone actually sent a family member a copy of that cassette tape "can we ever be friends..."?

    Geesh.....that was AWFUL....LOL...what a horrible tape that was.

    Heya TruBelle :hug:

    It's taken hours for me to think of what to say to you. Your pain and the pain other parents and family members have been put through is despicable.
    :angry:

    There is a point when children are no longer children, when they are old enough to stop blaming their parents for every little thing wrong in their lives and recognize and cherish them for all they've done to bring them into the world, protect them, love them and raise them as best they knew how. It's maturity, it is accepting your parents or kids for who they are in their entirety, faults and all.

    Yours is no longer a child. Elronius is right, at this point, we are talking about a selfish, self-centered, weak-willed adult.

    Who knows what personality changes yours has been through, what parts of his/her character good and bad, have been strengthened or weakened in that time. The child is a memory. The adult a stranger.

    I know an adult man in his 50s who criticized his mother right up to the week she died. He was as immature as they come. Never accepted the fact that his life was his own and his happiness and the happiness of his family his responsibility. Whatever was wrong with him was her fault. What a jerk.

    Your kid is a jerk. Some kids are. That may or may not ever change. I'm sure if it did, you'd be open to it, but maybe, if it did, instead of thinking about how wonderful it would be to have that person back, you might think of honestly telling your child how ruthless, cold and relentlessly vicious it has been to put you through that and that you did not deserve it, because you didn't.

    Some kids might not talk much to their parents for a year or two if they're angry. That's overboard and immature. What has happened to you and others is so far beyond overboard, it borders on psychotic, malicious cruelty.

    You may have already thought these things. I'm not saying you haven't. You've got a big heart though and there's no reason for anyone, no matter who they are, to get you to close it or limit the love you have to give and the love you deserve to receive because of their psychotic behavior.

    Not sure if I came across right, here, ITYIWT, but I am finding more and more that knowing I am worthy of both giving and receiving love and opening up my heart to those things is far more beneficial than damaging. It's worth the risk a thousand times over for the benefits to yourself and others.

    Love ya g/f. :bighug:

    Sheila

    "Are you crying yet you old bat?"

    This line had me laughing out loud!

    Regarding grandparenthood and parenthood for that matter, there are all styles of it. When my own children were born, they had two very different sets of grandparents. One set was involved and loving and spent a lot of time with them throughout their childhoods. (Mine) The other set, not so much. They were distant and very, very involved in their own lives. Being grandparents was just not high on their to-do list, shall we say. And it was not just my kids, they ignored their other grandchildren equally.

    So, sadly, I think there is the possibility that some grandparents (or parents) may have an easier time in disconnecting than others would.

    I wonder if Karen Downing will live to regret this disconnection. One day she will be old and need the care and support of all her family members. Taking care of sick or aging parents is no easy chore.

    SCIENTOLOGY PARADOX #497:

    --The highest ethics condition a Scientologist can attain is "POWER".

    --Ron's first law of Power is: "Don't Disconnect"

    --Therefore Scientologists wishing to remain in Power never disconnect! Unless someone
    disagrees with Ron, in which case the Scientologist is promptly ordered to Disconnect (in
    order to remain in Power
    ).


    Scientologists see nothing even slightly unusual about this because of Hubbard's Law of Commotion[SUP]*[/SUP].





    [SUP]*[/SUP] Hubbard's Law of Commotion: A curious cultic corollary of Newton's 3rd Law of Motion, stating that: For each and every Scientology policy, code or piece of tech--there is an equal and opposite policy, code or piece of tech.

    Re: Scientology member Karen Downing has Disconnected from her children and grandchil


    Thank you for taking the time and putting the thought into posting that Sheila (made me cry) but the simple truth (for me) is that I made the initial mistake. I married and had children with someone who was already married ... to a cult.

    I really should have known better, but I was young and was in the cult myself at that time.

    My beautiful children were caught in the middle of the usual BS that can occur when a couple separate but multiplied by 1000 due to the scientology element, they were not jerks, they were confused and by the time they hit adulthood completely fed up with trying to work out what was going on and whether I was really a scientologist or not ... and already trapped themselves in the cult (or thought they were, just as we all once did).

    Had I been in Katie Holmes's position (and believe me when I tell you, I wasn't) I would have done what she did when we split and made the rules crystal clear regarding indoctrination of the children ... instead I tried to appease my ex and the cult while keeping the kids as safe as I could from it all and trying to remain under the radar myself. I was certain that if I could just get them to adulthood they would see that scientology was for losers, refuse to be a part of it and we could leave ... Tom Cruise was very popular at that time though and for a brief moment it was almost cool to be a scientologist, my kids thought so anyway.

    I should have just been honest and told the lot of them to fuck off and then raised my kids with my integrity intact, coped with the resultant spite that I would have had slung at me and used the police if and when needed ... as it happens it would have been a lot easier, a lot less stressful and my kids may be cult free today ... they may not have had a Father though because he would have had to disconnect from us, not an ideal situation for the children.

    My siggy line says it all for me.

    Thanks again for caring.

    The power to deceive is not Power, it's the abuse of power that is given in trust.

    It's not assumed except by the arrogant and then can only be held by force of will upon
    another human being and rapidly descends into slavery.

    Hubbard knew jack shit about power and even less about humanity, he abused his gift as writer
    and made it into something extremely ugly and extremely harmful for those who fell into the wake
    of his insatiable lust for money and power.

    Underlying that lust and insatiable greed was his own personal truth, no matter how much
    he had of either, he had none except by deception and gathering it from others as he shook them
    down on the way across his "Bridge to total Fleecedom"

    Hops off the soapbox and wishes you all a fine day :hattip:
