Count me in as someone who never thought you were OSA. As you say, you are a person who loves to look at both sides, and I will admit this is good, but can also be annoying. Especially when a thread is humming along. I don't want to diss you on your thread, I just want to be honest because there has been head-butting between us, too.

But, honestly, I am sure it's quite a revelation to wake up one day and realize your beliefs have changed.

Good luck to you on your journey.


I'm having fun, though, I must admit, I felt rather discombobulated at first. I think I'm over the worst of that now.

Seems like other things are kinda opening up for me lately. Life's good and Christmas is coming!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

A response and a conclusion drawn

Postby Ball of Fluff » Sun Nov 29, 2009 3:55 pm

Thanks, Ethercat-- and my apologies to I'mglib and to J Swift for my delay in responding to them...

My husband hasn't said anything about it. I've mentioned it a few times and he kind of just nods. But he didn't get ranty or anything and life continues to go just fine around here. I just don't want to be a label and I don't want to be forced into some identity or mindset that I truly don't have any more. Interestingly enough, I only garnered one very slightly less than positive post from anyone in the FZ...the rest of my friends there have been very supportive in every way.

So here's my conclusion:

SPs are really awesome people. 8)

Oh, thanks. You know I wasn't terribly "standard" before. Pretty squirrelly, right, but still, I feel I've now moved beyond Scn. I still feel that I've learned some things I liked but it's just not the same anymore. It's really really not.

WonderHusband taking it awfully well, which is kewl. I believe he still considers himself to be a Scn'ist, of sorts.

The cats do not care. :wink:

Been doing a lot of meditation- doing it my own way. Been having fun with that and bought some more books on Buddhism.

I'm a mod on Geir Isene's new board. That's also kind of fun. They put up with me ok as a contributor, too, which is nice given the fact that my perspective's changed.

I know it seems silly Fluff, but this makes me very very happy!

Well, I'd not call it silly. But - well, not to be mean or anything, but I'm still the same Ball of Fluff as I was. Contentious, persnickety, interested in various things. But hey, as I said on the other thread, maybe there are other changes, too, after all. (I've just contradicted myself, I guess).

Hopefully sorting this out will be a fun journey.

Hubbard gave scienos many things to be contentious and
persnickety about.

The scieno sludge overlay tends to obscure a person's true
loving intelligent self.

Of course, there are many things that distort the true self,
which is why wogs can be contentious and persnickety as
well...

but, those are topics best left for another day on other boards.

IMHO, Scientology is all about the ego...

In many respects, on many occasions, that is quite true.

What's the difference Fluff what anyone says?

I can only share my own experience about the changing of a heart, the changing of a mind. And likely it doesn't relate to you, just saying this was mine.

I had things pretty worked out. I'm not talking teen years here, I'm talking well into my 30's. Religion was a man-made construct to placate the fear of the unknown - and Christ was a nice little story to give the masses hope. And I could go on about that for hours, and often did.

When my heart turned to the Lord, no "I told you so" could have hurt me. Bring it on! I couldn't wait to say "Yes! .. and you were right!" Now, I really didn't get any I told you so's, but that was how I felt about it.

I found that in my repentance, there was only Glory. Getting it rubbed in was inconsequential, as was applause - The angels in Heaven were rejoicing, that was enough.

And I find that when I'm afraid, I try to intellectually convince people and am ready to pounce on anyone who says I told you so - for me repentance is simple and freeing, fear is a mountain of intellectual claptrap. Best of luck with your situation.
