Gosh, there are some fascinating whisper (or not so quiet) campaigns ongoing. It never ceases to amaze me how an isolated few individuals can righteously and indignantly natter about myself, about Jim Logan or about others we know or work with.
The accusations and mud that gets flung around is fascinating to me. And that people take the 3rd hand, false and twisted information and accept it, is also interesting.
To satisfy the rumours – here is the real scoop:
Yes, we practice LRH’s Scientology and we have no qualms about stating that we do not support Captain Bill, Excalibur or other squirrel practices. If we are asked to send PC folders or information to squirrels, we won’t do it. It should be obvious why not. We have no problems with providing folders to bonafide Scientology auditors and have, many times, provided all worksheets, pc folders and information to such auditors. We are always willing to receive a cram or an instruct – however to date no such crams or instructs have been received from auditors we have sent folders to. If you want us to send your folders to a Captain Bill auditor, the answer is no.
Next — when persons we know and call friends turn out to be engaged in criminal and illegal financial activities, we don’t just close our eyes, but point out that in the face of out-ethics you cannot get case gain. Just because others have known of or been engaged in similar irregularities and have turned a “blind eye” to the situation does not mean that we will. And no, we can’t be bought off to say nothing and do nothing. If there is an ethics situation ongoing that is not being dealt with and becomes our own responsibility to do something about — we do. If you are a friend then you can expect us to care enough about you to say something. Heck — we would not be a friend or a real Scientologist if we let someone we cared for continue to engage in activity that is illegal and will see them get into trouble and a mess. And I would certainly expect that if I was engaged in some significant criminal activity (not that I am) then a friend would pull me aside and rub my face in it and get me to confront and deal with the situation before I did myself and my dynamics real damage. If you hear natter from anyone claiming that we engage in harsh or heavy ethics then you can know that behind the critical statements and motivating, is a situation that is still brewing and is not handled. And I did get a chuckle out of being called a “churchie” because I said NO! to someone who had ripped off friends, family and others to the tune of over half a million dollars. A churchie? Nope. It has been over 10 years since I was part of the Church of Scientology. But I certainly am a Scientologist and you are welcome to call me that.
One of the natter lines is that Jim Logan is a bad influence on me, controls me, has me in his pocket, and adversely impacts on my friends and networks. Jim and I have been in a bonafide defacto relationship now for 5 years. When my earlier marriage ended in 2010, I wanted to find a 2D with someone who is a dedicated Scientologist and wants to move up The Bridge and actually does. I wanted to find someone with a common reality and purpose, and who takes the time to read and apply LRH materials. I wanted a 2D with a person who is not caught up in middle-class PTSness or pretentious crap, but instead would work to know and apply Scientology — and that is Jim to a T. If that does not align with your own 2D goals, your own aspirations or your own attitudes, that is OK, because he is my 2D, not yours. But holy moly — to consider Jim an outpoint in my life is about as absurd as you can get. No, he is not a bad influence on me and no, I am not getting rid of him anytime soon (sorry to disappoint some). He keeps me entertained, is as funny as hell, does wonders with my two youngsters and he is sure handy around the place (not to mention he has my back and when someone starts to natter about me). He can be formidable and if you find him a bit scary in that regard, then that proves even further that I chose well.
I am not Jim and he is not me. Any one who knows me is aware that I am certainly able to stand on my own two feet, do not need to rely on someone as a crutch, and I am not effect of those around me. I make my own decisions and create and complete projects that I choose to engage in. So — that’s that.
There are a number of people who are scheduled to receive auditing here over coming months – several of them dear friends who we are looking forward to seeing again. I am also assisting Merrell Vannier to form up a standard tech committee consisting of Class VIIIs, Class IXs and Class XIIs for the First Independent Church of Scientology. And no, I won’t be on such a committee, as I am not a Class VIII (yet).
So… there you go! That’s the real scoop. No need to rely on the rumours or natter. There is the real deal – straight from the horses mouth.
PS. sorry for it being so quiet on the blog recently. Our new short-stay accommodation project here in Gundaroo (called The Nest) is a screaming success and we have had to hire staff to deal with the large number of bookings we are receiving.
