There's still so much to consider.
I've gone from leaving the church proper in the last 6 weeks and still thinking some of the tech was okay, to doing more reading and now thinking the tech was all crap. Or at least mostly crap. Drug induced, crazy, paranoid, schizophrenic crap. Plagiarized from others and cobbled together with manic and/or depressed images and ideas from Hubbard's own freaky, creepy imagination.
Maybe there was/is workable technology in there plagiarized from others, but then buggered up by Hubbard into some mumbo-jumbo Magick whacky Voodo shit.
I know there are folks that still believe in the tech and use it. After reading L. Ron Hubbard: Messiah or Madman and some other things I can't remember the name of right now, I'm not willing to use anything from LRH right now. In fact, I've just packed up everything Scientology or Dianetics that I had in the house that I could see and put it all in storage.
In your opinion, is there ANY tech from this ...philosophy....that you consider worth keeping and using?? If so, please tell me what it is. Or, do you think it is all crap from a greedy, money-hungry, mind controlling cult.
Right now, I'm of the mind that it's all crap and needs to be all thrown out, along with any organized religion. It's a weird feeling because when I encountered Scientology 35 years ago, I was looking for a higher purpose and was studying other things, too. So, now being repulsed by what I consider having been involved in a cult all these years and now repulsed by the thought of involvement in any other organized religion, and not being willing to trust any other "technology", it all leaves kind of an emptiness that I'm trying to resolve.
What do you think?
