Tag: Alanzo’s Scientology Biography
During all 3 Seasons of Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath, Leah and Mike have sought to make anyone who criticizes their show out to be a Scientologist. Because who could possibly criticize the holy work that they are doing but a Scientologist?Read More
Alanzo was a Scientologist for 16yrs. He left in the late 90’s & got fairgamed: fired from his job, followed by PIs & endured attempts by Scientology to destroy his business and his family. After all that, he believes getting out of a cult isn’t something that you recover from, it’s something you’re strengthened by.Read More
I used to think that as long as I was not in the cult of Scientology any more, I would never fall into the unquestioning, partisan mindset that I had adopted when I was a Scientologist.Read More
Adopting the beliefs of the anti-cult movement dramatically changes the views and attitudes of those who experience a loss of faith. Those changes have a profound effect on how Exes make sense of their own past. So we must ask: How helpful is the ideology of the anti cult movement in making sense of your life?Read More
What if being a Scientologist was never a really a disease in the first place that you needed to “recover from”? What if it was just one part of your own much longer spiritual journey that taught you many important lessons, and from which you emerged stronger and wiser than ever?
How would you know?Read More
I recorded my thoughts on the treatment I observed Aaron Smith-Levin getting from his Anti-Scientologist friends. From the ideologue Chris Shelton, to Tony Ortega’s demagoguery, to Leah Remini’s need to create a moral panic around Scientology – can Aaron’s intellectual honesty survive?Read More
To dismiss that part of your life, to wall it off under labels of “delusional Scientologist” or “weak” or “crazy loon” is to remain in a dissociative state – to continue living a fractured life with some of the best parts of you buried underneath a wall of self-hatred and shame.Read More
A Post-Ex has integrated the arguments, and “truths”, he made as a Scientologist with the arguments, and “truths”, he made as an Ex/Anti-Scientologist. He has seen the disconnects and the contradictions there, and repaired them. He no longer walks around with an opposite self inside him, with which he is at war.Read More
Consider that this is a trick that L Ron Hubbard pulled on Scientologists. Think about the terror a Scientologist experiences, and the ways their inner thoughts and environment are controlled by this trick. It’s a very vicious and uncaring one. It was a trick Hubbard used without regard to a Scientologists interests at all – but only to enrich himself off of their own inner terror.Read More
Your assumptions can be quite insidious. You must study the actual subjects that Hubbard “spun” for you – from sources completely independent from L Ron Hubbard – so as to challenge your own assumptions, separate out Hubbard’s installed ones, and inspect them for their weaknesses.Read More
Demonstrations to get Putin's political rival, Alexei Navalny, released from jail.
Navalny was poisoned a few months ago and has recovered. So now Trump's boss put him in jail.
Democracy has very clear enemies around the world. What are we going to do about them?
Great example of the dumbass arrogance of reductive materialists currently dominating the modern #scientific paradigm.
Given the amount that pop star Brian does not know about the natural world, "not yet discovered" is a more accurate statement.
The arrogance of #atheists! https://t.co/Bme4dgPhtV
My favorite book on #Buddhism: Simple, precise & profound.
The process of death is detailed, as well as what 'ordinary mind' looks like.
Jeffrey Hopkins is vigilant in Tibetan & in English.
The Dalai Lama's experience is clearly articulated.
A highly skilled introduction. https://t.co/KSjgzknRxo
My senator from #Illinois, once again, expresses an anti-political party opinion in the interests of our country.
Maybe you people will someday realize that Illinois produces Americans who continually work to save our country.
Let's see some of you other MFers step up, as well. https://t.co/kJ5YcppKuO
