A few months ago I packed up all my Scientology materials and put them in the back barn with the rats and bugs. All 13 boxes of them !!! It was such a relief to have all of that out of my space so I could start my new life. Suddenly I found I had tonnes of storage space - for the few non- scio objects that I had managed to purchase over the years ! Yesterday as I was re organising my bookcase I found a little gem that I had overlooked in my initial clean out ! The official Scientology : "PASSPORT Up The Bridge to Freedom" Do you remember this ? It made me laugh so much I thought I'd share it with you. Firstly, it is small and shaped like an actual passport but many more pages. Mine has AOANZO 6054 cut out in little dots across the top. On the inside cover it states : This passport does not displace a national passport where required - really !!! It has spaces for me to fill in my details including my clear number & my IAS number. It states that it entitles the bearer to Standard Tech - perhaps that is what went wrong - I forgot to present my passport whilst at Flag On the next pages it has a WARNING : Only officially appointed Regs or authorised officials are permitted to write in or make entries or stamp this passport - it becomes invalid if unauthorized entries are made Any entry in it is not effective until it is properly validated by a qualified and official Org Examiner ( gosh I thought did anyone do any of this ??? - I wonder if the examiners stats were down and this was a handling ??? ) You then have place for a photo ( yep thats right a photo ! WTF ? ) Then on the next page it has a notice explaining : That no one else but you can use the passport but that it is valid for an unlimited number of lifetimes !!! ( Oh ... I get it - so you don't have to do the same services over and over !!! ) Then it lists all the LRH books - you are supposed to get these officially stamped once you have read them. Has anyone ever heard of the book "Control & Mechanics of SCS" ?:confused2: There is space for all the tech volumes (including some lines for additional new volumes ... as they are released I suppose ) There is also the Organisational series, LRH EDs, Chronological Policy Volumes and one hundred and two R&D volumes !!! As well as another 22 lines for additional LRH books ( yet to be written ??? ) Next is the lectures - there is a quote "they are the ONLY record of all advances which made possible the handling of the human mind". Well there are heaps and heaps of these that I had never heard of - but then again I was never a big lecture fan .But some of the titles are interesting enough. Included in the list of Classic lectures, Ron's Journals, ACCs, Congresses, Technical Training Series, there is strangely enough only one music album "The Road to Freedom" I think there is some lost tech right there - I know for a fact that there was more than one music album recorded - which evil SP left the others off this list !!! Next are the films here the quote says ; " films are a gold mine of technical data and in the case of public films a magic wand to create public interest and revitalisation" So what is going on here :confused2: Public are not flooding in because these masterpieces are not being shown ! ( I can clearly remember being so embarassed when it was time for my selectees to view an LRH public film ) Once again there are heaps and heaps that I have never seen nor heard for example :Birth, Raising the Baby, and The Child ( all of which you might of thought I would of been invited to watch since I was pregnant twice whilst on OTVII ) Or what about ; Advice to Persons Being Audited, Operating Thetan, or Influencing the Planet ( since I was on the upper most levels trying to achieve these lofty states of an all influencing OT ) The next section is the Basic services - once again loads of little courses that I have never heard of, but then we get to the actual Bridge Grade Chart. Now of great interest to me was page for Solo Nots ... it only has 5 lines for Bi annual checks whilst on New OTVII - that means it is supposed to be finished in 2.5 years !!! Fuck it Why didn't some "official" at Flag point this out and tell me to bring my passport - so that I could be signed off - I was left on it for nearly 12 years !!! Stupid me letting my passport get lost on the bookshelf like that !!! And by the way in the whole 12 years on the level I never once heard of the 6 month check or the "refresher" refered to as a Bi annual check - very odd me thinks ! Anyway the passport goes all the way up to OTXV - interestingly after OTVIII there are no more eligibility check spaces - so I guess the EP of OTVIII is the end of elig sec checks ??? Then is the training section from student hat up to Class XII C/S and Flag Dean of Technology. It states that these higher levels are available to Sea Org members only - but fails to mention this involves signing a billion year enslavement contact where you get to work 80 + hours a week for virtually no pay ! Finally you get to the 3rd and 4th Dynamic participation section. Here you get signed off for all the public you selected for their first service, all the staff posts you have held and the ultimate - the date you joined the Sea Org. Of some use are the few pages for you to record your commendations and awards ( could come in handy when routed to the ethics officer ) and a few more pages to record which Orgs you have been to so your folders can be traced. On the closing pages are this IMPORTANT INFORMATION Duration of Validity Of Passport This passport is valid for the duration of this universe. Loss or Damage of Passport Basically it says a new one can be issued for a validation fee yep ... that is right if you damage or loose this passport any time in the duration of this universe the Church will happily replace it for a "small fee" If Travelling In Enturbulated Spaces A bit of travel advice here ... If travelling in enturbulated spaces or in the company of Suppressives it is important to keep in good comm with your HAS, EO or MAA . The final LRH quote a classic : " You won't always be here. But before you go, Whisper this to your sons And their sons - 'The work was free. Keep it so' ". UMMMmmm - excuse me but did some one say FREE ??? :confused2: So as I was laughing my way through this I mentioned to hubbie who would honestly have gone and got this all filled in - he told me sadly that one of our previously close friends a class VIII , OTVIII expanded ( for the 3rd time ) got his passport all filled out when he was last at Flag. Seems that status, not results, is more important to some. Hope you had a giggle too !
