Tomorrow will be my last day here, for a while. A couple of people here do know who I am and can get a hold of me to let me know when I should revisit the site, which I shall do occasionally. I guess if enough of you shouted then I'd get the word.
I do want to clear up something someone mentioned. I said the tech doesn't work. But I said I got wins. Both are true.
I learned how to communicate better in Scn. I learned how to study well. I frequently came out of session feeling better, after having talked about whatever might be bothering me. I had realizations that made me feel good.
However, each of the levels have abilities you're supposed to gain, as well everybody knows. Other than the lowest levels, I didn't see anyone ever, even temporarily, reach those points.
I have been to church with friends. In various churches, I've had some realizations listening to pastors. I've smiled and felt good.
I've been to Asia many times and talked to Budhist monks. They have helped me cognite on certain things.
So, asking whether Scn works is not the same as asking has it ever produced wins. The fundamental tech basics, although logical, when accepted and then acted on.... releasing engrams, BTs, etc, simply doesn't achieve the promoted end results. Not on Hubbard or anyone else I ever met.
But it would be wrong of me to say that no one has ever had a win, or felt good (although usually temporarily) from Scn. It would not be wrong of me to say that I've never seen or heard of an actual Power release, OT, Clear etc.
I could likewise make certain analogues to the admin tech. Though there are good ideas, it is largely contrived hogwash. Again, that's not to say there aren't equivalents even in the outside world to precepts of admin tech, that can be effective. But all of it? Errrr. Baloney.
Just cause you say something and people believe it doesn't make it real.
you see i only have CLIV org experience. grades life repair to GrIII seem to bite pretty good on people who are (1) basically OK and (2) interested
it's GrIV that tended to be observably less effective. makewrongs are forever...
