Every day we are getting communication from people who are seeking the right path to spiritual enlightenment. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. We have been badly backlogged but it is always nice to hear from you.
I want to thank you for all the info on your blog. It really has gotten me closer to confronting my own dynamics and wanting to go OT. I am going to continue reading your blog and frankly feel safe doing so knowing you have done so much and have a lot of experience with the tech. I have a ton of questions. I would be honoured if you would be a terminal for me in my quest for the truth. I have been a Scientologist since the late 60s.
I have followed your blog over the past year, having been affiliated with the church. It has been helpful and enlightening in many ways. I am a successful executive in Europe. I also work in the US and South America from time to time. I advanced in my auditing, and couple of years ago I desisted in my auditing as I had clear differences with the church. I underwent endless ethics sessions trying to fix the matter, saw many things in session, and yet, the situation did not change, reason for which I decided to go on with my life as the Way to Happiness preaches, rather than being forced to be something that I feel I should not. However, this radical disconnection from source is difficult as my spiritual goals remain stagnant for the time being. I am hesitating whether or not to go back to auditing in the church. I thank you for your efforts to heighten the values of this spiritual path. It has been soothing and helpful in understanding many points of confusion.
Dear Mr. Ethier,
[Introduction]…..I became aware of Scientology in the 90-es and had life-changing win right away. Since then it has been over two decades of unsuccessful trying to achieve any progress or win despite my efforts, involvement and resources spent. In the last couple of years, as I could see within Scientology organizations I visited for help increasing outpoints which were in direct conflict with my purposes to achieve positive changes to my life. I felt indoctrinated and started to look for alternatives and data to explain what I saw in the Church. That is how I found your videos and your blog and that is how I decided to contact you. I don’t want to waste your time by writing long stories about my experience nor I would expect any technical opinions based on e-mail communication. To be perfectly honest, I don’t know really, what to do, it seems, after all I did and tried, I would need some expert handling that I believe I can get in the Church. Would it be possible to get some help and guidance from you?
A few years back, I hit a point where I was in need of some answers and became willing to communicate with anyone or anything to come up with some answers. I’ve found plenty of answer. I never knew how deep the rabbit hole went.
I’ve enjoyed your Web site, I enjoy your blog.
….Thank you for the link to Pierre’s blog !!! I see weeks worth of reading and enlightenment and catching up .. After all these years. …..I am very encouraged after decades of hopelessness. And I look forward to seeing Pierre again. It is so comforting to know that there is hope again for spiritual progress … and by such a friend and high caliber auditor as you Pierre!!!
……Please let me take this opportunity to offer my sincere validation for what you have done in Scientology, the expertise you developed, and the courage and toughness you’ve displayed by your long term involvement in Scientology and your decision to leave the formal organization, and publish your reasons for leaving and presenting your findings for the world to see.
With kindest regards,
Many months ago I have contacted you because I just got mad by loosing hope how to go up on the bridge without Cos…..
Also I was not in the best shape in my life, may be you remember….
Since than I have signed contract with a college in business management. I just wanted a new community in my life and also to start “using”my mind again. And got a job too..
I am always following your blog and today in the morning a “miracle ” happened…
One thought has been crawling in my mind….. what is my purpose in my life ???
WHAT IS THAT. ??????????????? I NEVER GOT ANSWER FOR IT…..
I understand if you do not know what you want to achieve in your life you are not going anyway and without purpose you are screwed…..
So . Yesterday I got 7 e mail by you and I started to read them……
I finished to read in middle of the ” winning on the L 11 expanded ” article and I went to sleep with a thought… what should I do in my life… Today in the morning I got to a local mall to have a breakfast and a nice coffee, I continued reading that article….. And my mind blow….. your PC gave me an answer by his gains…. he said it does not matter what was the purpose earlier… what is important that what he want to set in the present time. Here & NOW!
When I read it again …. I just wanted to hit the concrete wall with my head like a bull. How could I be so nuts to decade not to realize this???????
So thank you and to your PC and of course to Ron to make my day and maybe my future… :):)
For sure I want to be your PC soon as possible.
My husband and I are catching up on the history of the church. We learned so much from your website and especially your YouTube videos. Thanks for making them.
We stopped participating after I received extremely vicious and destructive auditing. This was after seeing out point after out point for years. We only recently learned of the mass defections. Right now it looks like very few public are participating in services, since Leah Remini departed.
I would like to get that terrible cycle repaired sometime.
Thank you for your great website.
I started in Scientology just after the GAT release. As years went by, we noticed more and more that things were not being done right and corrections were not being made. The events got stranger and stranger. The quality of public got worse and worse (status/power seekers, people looking for customers for their business). We got busy with our lives and did not continue, which we are thankful for.
I trained to Class IV and audited many hours on that and have read most of the NED and Grad V material. I loved auditing but the crazy cramming cycles and f’d up auditing I got myself ended it all. I am enjoying reading your technical criticism and those of other defectors.
I am afraid of a declare order. I’ve already been harassed with nutty orders. Even the IJC told me to get a Board of Review on an order that contained an opinion and generality and not one specific. Also, the org never sent me the order – I learned about it when friends saw it posted.
Truthfully, I’d prefer to write them a letter and tell them I’m disconnecting from David Miscavige & Co., but we have our lives to think about, you know? So many Scientologists in our area and it would be hard on everyone.
After getting spiritually raped in auditing as my last action, I decided I would NEVER get auditing again.
Thanks for your informative site and for having the courage to stand up to Miscavige so long ago.
When I was in my teens I decided that I would find the “meaning of life”. I have always known that I was a spiritual being. When I took biology in high school I remember getting angry when the teacher insisted that life was the result of evolution. I just knew that couldn’t be true. I opened my mind and read many books – every topic from reincarnation to witchcraft. I even read the Bible and parts of the Koran. I also read many psychology and self-help books. And in college I devoured philosophy and religion classes.
But after so much searching I was rather disappointed. Occasionally, I found bits of information that I knew were true, but mostly I found theories that just didn’t make sense or that painted a very pessimistic picture of the human race.
One day I picked up a copy of Dianetics. I tore through it in a matter of days and I couldn’t put it down! It explained the real reason why people are unhappy and why they don’t get what they want in life. With my progressing up the spiritual path , I became so much happier, had more energy and enthusiasm for life, and my memory improved. It was a life changing experience.
I have a marriage many people would envy. I learned the tools of communication and how to make relationships work. My marriage NEVER would have happened otherwise. Best of all, I know that my life will continue to get better.
A friend of mine gave me your name & I had your number. I want to thank your for that beautiful page of yours. I loved it, the music & all the things on your page. You have incredible affinity, even towards those who are not good towards you. You are a very theta being. I will like to be always in a theta situation & beingness, as you. When I leave this body too.. I will like to go through the upper bridge. I am postulating we can find all the unaltered versions of LRH tech. 🙂
