I'll take this one, the best word to describe Rawl is "coy".
I'm the "heavy hitter". I make baseball analogy's because I was a player.

I've been for the most part available 24/7 from the join date on the left, maybe before. I took off from work for my 77 yo Dad who is hanging in with a brain tumor. [TY, we're ok] However, I should be packing boxes right now for a move.

I saw something funny. Somewhere it was saying when a Sea Org drops this meat body, there is a time lag. It was substantial too. Like 20 years maybe? Surely not 20 days?

But what got me to laugh was I pictured the Master Con dealing with his first batch of Sea Org suffering "burn-out".

"C'mon Commodore, ...give us a break!"

So Hubbard thought about it, cause he didn't want any dayum entheta skuttlebutt going around. So that night in his Captain's Suite, nibbling on his salad and jumbo shrimp waiting for the porterhouse to show up, oogling his little CMO's in their little hot short shorts and halter tops, it came to him, just like all his other crap. A way to further abuse human beings for his own purpose, and make them like it.

So Hubbard issues whatever policy, or however he laid down the law about the "down" time between body's.
So from then on, a Sea Org member knew they had some dayum good vacation time coming...

...just soon as they dropped dead.

Ball of fluff, it wouldn't seem at first that the big soul in a little body was a problem, until you consider why someone would say this. What would the purpose be of telling someone that a child is just a big thetan in a little body, considering that scientologists believe that the thetan is where all thought takes place, and since all thought must take place their, therefore their mind must be as old as the next adult. Now I'm not saying their aren't some very mature children out there, I'm just saying they shouldn't be all treated as if they're adults, they don't have the reasoning capabilities, nor the experiance, to deal with the issues of everyday life.
I fart in your general direction!

Understood.

But that's why I pointed out other things he said about kids.

I'm not sure "coy" is the best word to describe me, but I'll accept it. You're right about "big hitter", it wasn't meant to be insulting, I was likening the folks who post "a lot" to the star baseballer player with the terrific batting averages - it's not about volume of posts (not the "me too" posters) but the high-volume, high-quality-output folks. Of course my posts are "quality" ;) just I have a walk-on part here up til now and I'm not an A-List or B-List OCMB celebrity. ;)

AH, I'm glad to hear your father is doing better, and I'm touched by the character inherent in your decision to step up to the plate on that. I can bet it isn't easy. Do well.

Here's a little story for you. When I was on the Flagship in 1971 for FEBC training,I was one of the few OT111X's aboard. For that reason, I acted as Examiner for others aboard who were OT111X. Those few included Quentin and Stella King. Stella King was the Ship's Captain. She was more than 50 yrs old, and was heavy, and sort of florid, but I had known her before ( Phoenix or D.C.) and I knew that she was a real person and had a great sense of humor. Anyways, Stella died. lrh was furious that Stella had died without replacing herself and without his permission to leave her post. lrh assigned the deceased Stella the condition of Doubt, and consigned her to 16 years before she could rejoin the group. Howszat for love and compassion?

ladayla,

Woa! That is amazing! Thank you for sharing your experiences. You really help one to sift through the good, the bad and the ugly pieces of Scientology/Co$.

*shameless, self-aggrandizing bump*

There is really no great reason for this bump, outside of the fact that a few newcomers will inevitably appreciate it. Alert, Kusanagi's Ghost, I'm looking your way.

Weren't we told that mankind has no better friend ? :-k [-X


Thank you for your post Ladalya, another great example of how insane

Oh, yes I'm the great pretender.
Pretending that I'm doing well.
My needs are such, I pretend too much.
I'm lonely, but no one can tell.

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender
adrift in a world of my own
I play the game but to my real shame
you've left me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
too real to feel what my heart can't conceal

friendly nature, is it beyond your comprehension that someone might be engaged in Scientology of their own free will and that, by their own reckoning, it helps them?

Rawl,

I'd say your pretending you're getting something out of being a $cientologist. You have to have heard it all by now and your still towing the company line. It doesn't make sense.

Yes it is.
Maybe if you tell us how exactly $cientology helps you? We will understand.
