AN OPEN LETTER TO THE XSO FORUM
It is an eye opener to see people who have just recently posed as my friends
busily claiming to be impartial in "judging me" yet happily labelling me
"delusional" and someone possessed with hallucinatory visions of grandeurs,
merely because I happen to disagree with their views, especially after I
had, in good faith made an open invitation only 5 weeks ago, to all XSO to
use the Ranch I am in the process of acquiring either as a Sanctuary or Safe
Harbour, away from all Scientology activities or Hubbard ideas if they so
desire. I had even forgiven the same individual at his own begging for making
statements that earlier had ridiculed me on this board.
Worse, they push the insult further and twist of my words, by falsely stating
that I gleefully and mouth agape fiercefully forward the ideals of an organization
I have been publicly denouncing as enslaving people for decades, and directly
invite that those with an axe to grind with the Church to put me in he same
bag of rotten apples and treat me in the same heinous fashion...
The only thing XSO hasn't done yet is calling me "FAIR GAME".
My experience with XSO, ESMB and a number of other boards, is that they are
largely populated by the disgruntled who view it as an avenue to ridicule,
slander or otherwise malign those that happen to have different views than
their own, while falsely parading as defenders of Freedom of Speech.
Worse, extremely poor research, and apparently prejudice, lead them to repeatedly
attribute me a fanatic fervor, obtuseness, all kind of ideas and even a self-elected
ignorance, all of which appear to only exist in their feverish imagination.
They claim to have renounced to the Church of Scientology, but still practice
very much some of its ways, including using the very same brand of pernicious
black PR the Church propagates against "dissenters". (In this case those
who happen to disagree with XSO or the board mainstream ideas)"
An now because I state that some principles written by Hubbard have some
validity, individuals again completely equate me with Hubbard and each and
everyone of the statements he made that they happen to dislike.
In the real world, professionals with decades of succesful experience and
who truly understand their craft, can produce truly superior products than
a neophyte. Those with decades of experience in applying a craft will do
it succesfully and happy customers are the results of competently executed
tangible products, whether or not "scientific proof" exist to explain how
those came about. This is the message that is stated in the bulletin "C/S
95 Failed Cases".
Therefore the unavoidable conclusion is that in the World of those who see
the above bulletin as a monstruosity, that unprofessionalism, incompetence
and the belief that high quality products are unattainable are perceived
as unavoidable facts of life.
I happen to disagree with those views, though, contrarily to my critics,
I elect to not sink to their level by ridiculing and spouting venom about
those who hold diferent views that I.
I have read enough on XSO and ESMB to know that if someone discovered that
Hubbard validated the discovery of the Law of Gravity by Newton or that the
sky is blue, it would be reason enough for some people to start to challenge
Hubbard on it.
Every single principle I apply is amply explained by dozens of authors and
philosophers independent of Hubbard, and better yet my direct experience
with over 5000 cases and 30000 hours in the Chair, has clearly shown me what
works and what doesnt.
Yet like an endless litany comes statements accusing me of being no better
than a lobotomized imbecile who is in a perpetual trance about Hubbard's
writing and is utterly helpless in separating the wheat from the chaff.
Contrarily to the assertions made by some individuals on the XSO board,
I am not a third rate moron...
Perhaps people should do some research about what I truly believe in and
actually do, instead of judging everything through the filter of the unpleasant
experiences they had with an organization that neither they nor I believe
in any longer. Yet they keep acting as if they believed themselves to be
possessed by some wondrous Telepathic Superpowers making them able to read
my mind and most inner thoughts without even bothering questioning me.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE GOAL OF SCIENTOLOGY
AS THE GAINING OF STRANGE OR FANTASTIC SUPERPOWERS.
Quite on the contrary, it has been amply demonstrated that those fixated
on that notion, would frequently end up as failed cases until they could
"get a hold of reality", much like the quadraplegic whose main dream is to
"become a ballerina" will not obtain tangible results in any form of theraphy
until she starts to come to term with he truth of her condition.
Perhaps this is why those who have such a grudge on the subject keep bickering
without end about it, instead of turning the leaf, like I did, many years
ago. Perhaps they never understood what this was all about to begin with,
having gullibly swallowed hype, false data or the delirious statements printed
on a promotional leaflet.
Therefore perhaps,it would appear sensible in most circles that people might
be open to the view that someone who has hundreds of time their experience
applying a subject and read thousands of pages more than they did, perhaps
stands a chance to understand the subject better than they do (whether or
not it works or one agrees with it).
At least the above views are held valid in Academia, in Science and in the
Corporate and Professional Worlds.
Scientologists and ex-Scientologists appear to be the only kind of individuals
I have met in life who share the singular view that Knowledge, research and
experience have no bearing on the ability to make an "informed judgement".
I have always viewed Scientology as " a set of applied principles
based on observation, confirmed by tangible experience and results, whose
goal is to help attain a higher level of self-realization and gaining one's
If XSO and its activists, decide the goal mentioned just above is Evil, it
is certainly their prerogative and right, but I strongly believe that those
who do so will continue to remain a small minority of the population in the
And for each disgrunted individual those who slander me can bring forward,
I can bring ten people who say they have been helped.
I will not bother to respond any further to the disinformation spread on
XSO about what I do and what I believe in.
At the end of the day, who has a more satisfactory and fullfilling existence?
The one who is busy assisting people become more successful in life, their
job and their interpersonal relationship? Someone who has become far more
succesful in life both materially and in his daily interpersonal relashionships
than any of his critics. Someone who is being thanked daily for deeds done
years or DECADES earlier by the thousands of people he worked with?
Or the one who bitterly keeps moaning about Sour grapes with his own
kind with no solution in sight except the supression or ridicule of those
who "dissent" with his views?
