Just recently my daughter (mid 20's) came to visit me from abroad, I cant say where as I dont want to put her in any danger, but we had not seem eachother for over 10 years and it was a fabulous time together.
She never actually grew up with me, but we always had contact.
Her mother was a $cientologist, born into it, but officially left in 2002.
I only recently found that out when I sent her mother an email with a link about protests going on in London, that was last year.
I was relieved to hear she had woken up too.
Shortly before my daughter turned up I asked her mother about our mutual daughter, in order to prepare myself for the coming visit.
All i all I must admit it was a really nice experience, as we had some serious conversations about $cientology and she said she had profited in recenty yrs from some basic courses and had had some sort of 1 to 1 talk with an OT 5 when she was feeling a bit down a couple of yrs ago, which seems to have really impressed her.
I had some difficulty biting my tongue, as I really wanted to get accross what I had discovered etc on my way to 'waking up'. (AFTER 30 YRS)
I refrained from saying anything about OT 3 as I found it was not the right sort of info to give her, and I didnt want to deliberately mess something up for her.
We did talk about OT powers and a bit about past lives, and somewhere along I did mention that I had read all of the OT levels up to OT 8 on the internet.
I also said that it was there that you supposed learn that your past -lives were just 'mocked up'.
She went on to say that she remembered a past life and she new some others who also did, and how trustworthy these people are etc.
I noticed she seemed quite concerned about what I was saying, but we didnt pursue it further.
I realized that our time together was too prescious to be only talking about that subject all the time, but it did sometimes come up, as she definately has the $cn way of explaining things wth the usually jargon etc.
We briefly discussed Anonymous, with whom I have often protested, and she said
"Oh yeah that group of cowards who have to wear masks"
My sign and mask were actually in the room next to where she was sleeping.
Little did she know.
I could write loads about our meeting, but dont quite know where to start.
She is a lovely, beautiful young lady who is working in a responsible full time job and geting on in life.
We keep in touch on one of the networking sites, and I get to see all her adventures documented with photos.
My family were very impressed with her and found her a loving, bouncy, confident person.
She didnt once mention $cientology to them by the way.
I do get the feeling she is not 'on course' as often as she thinks she should be, but she definately doesnt seem as though she is wasting her life in the cult.
While she was here I briefly had contact to the mother per email, where she laughingly told me that her sister back home had been to one of the Anonymous protests.
I get the feeling it is only a matter of time for before my daughter recognizes in her own time that $cientology is a scam, and that OT's and 'clears' do not exist, but she may hang on to that dream just a litle bit longer.
By the way I gelled with her instantly and realized that I truly do love her whatever she decides anyway.
