Once again, it's a good story. The connection with Scientology is kind of a suprise, but can you honestly say there is anything truly enlightening in
the OP's post? I'm not dissing it nor in any way saying it is incorrect. In fact, I believe it IS largely correct, perhaps even entirely correct in
its particulars. I say that because I've heard it all before. The first time I heard "the story" was in the Seth Books, by Jane Roberts, vintage 1972,
pushing a half century ago. Seth tells essentially the same story. Oh, he's not into the CIA/paranormal connection; he's much more historically
focused, but when you render down the essential elements, it's the same thing.
What haven't you heard before? We survive bodily death. We have (or ARE) a soul. We can do OBEs once we learn how. we actually create our own reality.
That and throw in a bit of CIA conspiracy stuff and we're there. It's pretty basic stuff approved by the New Age(tm). So far OP hasn't really pushed
the envelope. He's in relatively safe territory.
The really interesting thing here, though, is the reaction of OP's Bulldogs. It reminds me how Michael Horn defends Billy Meier, this in-your-face,
brook-no-opposition frontal attack against anyone who DARES bring up the slightest little thing in contradiction to the OP. You guys don't want a
conversation here. You don't want a back and forth dialogue. You want everyone to say, "Tell me more, Oh, Great Master!" or to leave. You've stated as
So why so defensive? We're not listening to a sermon here. It's not wrong to interrupt the priest and ask for clarification. It's not bad form to
point out an inconsistency or, Heaven forbid, a mistake.
To people who are demanding anyone with issues should leave I say. No, YOU leave. If you really want to listen interrupted to the Master, create a
Church, scrutinize new members, and let no one in of which you disapprove. But ATS here is a public forum. You do not get to choose only the answers
or only the participants you want . If you are going to have this discussion HERE, then you are obligated to admit alternative points of view. This is
NOT a closed system whereby you can expect to meditate at the feet of the Master. If you think so, it's time to get over it. You cannot dictate what
the rest of us say.
