When you got into Scientology, what did you want to do with it? What did you want to accomplish?
Was it helping people? Did you envision helping others with Scientology?
Was it increased abilities, powers? Did you picture yourself dashing through life with ease and confidence?
Was it flourishing and prospering? Were your dreams of a good life, where you could live as you wished, where you had the life you’d dreamed of? Did you see yourself free from debt and financial troubles?
Was it freedom? Did you desire to be free from guilt and pressure; free to do as you deemed right; free to live the life you chose?
Was it “OT”? Did you want to uncover the upper level mysteries? Did you want to know how to regain OT abilities? Did you want unlimited potential?
So, how’s it going with your original goals? Are you there yet? Are you making progress? Are your goals completely different now?
I can imagine your life is considerably different, now that you’re a Scientologist, but is it better? Are you, personally, doing better now?
Or are you deeply in debt, far beyond what your better judgment would have allowed?
Are you under tons of pressure and guilt to do more, give more, dedicate more? Do you cringe when the phone rings? Do you get into long conversations about your private finances with Scientology staff members, IAS registrars, desperately trying to justify not going even deeper into debt?
Are you scared? Are you afraid that you will be prevented from moving up the bridge because you just haven’t given enough money to the IAS, the Ideal Org. campaign, CCHR? Have you already been stopped? Do you feel threatened by what the Scientology powers-that-be may do to you if you don’t do what you’re told?
Have your results from Scientology been a disappointment? I know you can’t admit it aloud, but have the bright, wonderful promised results not been so bright, not so wonderful? Do you feel just about like you used to feel, many years ago? Are you still hoping your future services will give you the bright, wonderful results you’d wanted?
Do you feel constrained, corralled, herded, controlled by the Church of Scientology? Do you get tired of constantly monitoring what you see, what you hear, what you read to make sure you don’t stray from the “allowed areas”? Does the church have a list of things you should be doing? Does this feel like “freedom” to you? When you’re around non-Scientologists, do you ever relax, or do you constantly watch what you say, what they say?
Do you miss your friends and family? Do friends and family tense up when you show up, because they know you’ll just pressure them to “try Scientology”? Do any of them still want to be around you? Have you been forced to “disconnect” from all of them? Do you ever have any conversations that are not about Scientology? Don’t you miss just hanging out?
When was the last time you laughed, really laughed, long and loud? When was the last time you really relaxed?
Do you feel that the Church of Scientology helps you or does it only demand help from you? And is that demand for help pretty much just a demand for lots more money?
Is your future “bright with promise”, or is it now “heavy with guilt and responsibilities”?
Do you think the Church of Scientology would consider these questions “unacceptable”? Why would just asking questions be forbidden by any honest organization?
