Message from exSCNist turned into Bodhi
By Todde Salén. Sweden
Purpose clearing from DUGA
Quote from LRH. "Living is having and following a Basic Purpose".
For a thetan it is absolutely necessary to have and follow a goal. The
better his goals are the more alive he is if he also follows through
towards attaining them.
If he fails to attain or approach his goals he winds up in trouble. In
other words he ends up in a mass of problems. This is the idea behind
Goals Problem Masses, i.e. GPMs.
So when you want to straighten a thetan out who has become messed up
by his GPMs your first task is to give him the goal of straightening
out his messy situation.
Everybody who ever got "turned on" by LRH in the organization called
Scientology knows how it feels to get a goal and make progress towards
The goals of Scientology for the thetan were really basic goals. So
they made the being come alive.
Hubbard was successful in awakening thetans to try to get straightened
out. He also had some success in getting us moving in that direction.
I hope we can agree on the above. If so, we have done step one in the
Now we will face step two:
What kills the thetan more than anything else is a "failed purpose".
Knowledge about Goals and Purposes and what they do to a thetan is
very valuable knowledge indeed. A thetan who knows about these things
is much better equipped to handle problems in life. Real problems in
life are purposes and counterpurposes. When you have a mass of
purposes and counterpurposes opposing each other, you have a problems
The only reason a thetan fails in achieving his purposes is because he
winds up in counter-purposes.
Now just take a look at what you did with your own purposes to get
disentangled from the mess (Goals Problem Mass) you wound up in. Do
you have a failed purpose in the area? If you do, it is only because
you did not have a way to achieve those purposes that was workable for
Now next question: "Who is to blame for your failure to achieve the
If you blame Hubbard or your Scn Auditor or the Cof$ or somebody else,
you are really doing all you can to get stuck in a failed purpose on
the subject. Whenever you create somebody else than yourself as source
for your failures, you are successfully creating a mass of problems
that prevents you to attain your goal.
Congratulations! You have done it again.
It could be said that LRH did not successfully create a bridge that
took you all the way to OT.
It could be said that he claimed to create a bridge to take you all
the way to full OT.
The Road to truth
What he did, however, is that he got you started on the road to truth.
And if you are any kind of being, you should be able to not fall into
the trap of blaming anybody else than yourself for not arriving where
you wanted to go.
It could be said that it is suppressive to give somebody a goal
without also giving him a way to walk towards that goal.
I do not want to make excuses for Hubbard. I seriously doubt that he
would like me to make excuses for him.
I also do not want to allow you to be excused. After all you are
already an OT in many ways. You are OT in the ability to create GPMs
that mess you up. You are OT in blaming other entities for your
failures. You are OT in creating yourself as something less than an
You have managed to create yourself as a human being who only lives
one short lifetime on planet Earth. And you have possibly been very
much OT in making yourself believe that you are "only human".
Road to truth
If you have exteriorized and remember it, you have attained the dream
of the Bodhi. You have become aware of not being human. You have
connected up with your beingness as a spiritual being - a thetan.
That is a big step on the road to truth. The road to truth leads
towards your own true self. Your own true self does not need anybody
to blame for your failures.
Your own true ethics not blame Hubbard for having given "too little
help". Your own true self will be very grateful, indeed, for the help
you have received from LRH and his technology. Your own true self will
look at the Cof$ and recognize that you can no longer get any help
from that organization, as it is today an "out-ethics" organization
and thus cannot deliver "in-tech". It cannot any more assist you to
move forward on the road to truth.
The best that organization can do today is give a new person that is
getting in contact with it a hope that he can get untangled from the
GPM-mess he is in.
They can give him this goal. But that organization cannot help that
new individual along on the road to truth the way you once were
assisted by it.
Somebody else has to step in here and assist those individuals if they
are ever going to get a chance of arriving enough far down the road to
truth to be able to continue on together with some other guys like you
Out of the ashes of the Cof$ a lot of free zone organizations have
grown up. Some of those organizations have made it and can deliver a
much higher standard of technology than could ever be done in the
If you want to continue and get your case untangled, you had better
connect up with one (or more) of these organizations and get busy
continuing towards the goal, instead of sitting there playing other
games that will give you new failures and more masses to get stuck in.
We never played any small game in SCN.
SCN is just a small game inside the bigger game called Religion on
SCN did not change the basic philosophy of religion. It only added a
technology to it that can be used to achieve a lot of the goals and
purposes of religion. When you start working on these higher goals and
purposes you are revitalizing yourself as a thetan and OT.
Ron never really tried to make you - the human being - become an OT.
It was only the true self he could make an OT out of.
The biggest misunderstood in the Cof$ is and was that the first
dynamic can be made into an OT. The "human nature" of yours is very
much the effect of Matter, Energy, Space and Time. The "Bodhi-nature"
(i.e. the true self or thetan) exists outside of the MEST universe and
does not have to be the effect of matter, energy, space and time.
Step one is to have the goal of getting untangled from the enegies and
masses of the reactive mind (uncontrolled mind it was called in
Step two is to make progress in this direction.
Step three is to continue to make progress in this direction despite
obstacles (like the organization one belonged to going out ethics,
One step on the road is to have attained exteriorization and then an
Int/Ext Rd, so one can continue.
Another step (much later, which could be called OT 8 or the "end of
Auditing ") is to become so much cause over your mind that you no
longer need to use the E-meter to progress on the road to truth.
On the road to OT 8 you have to become a very good Auditor or you will
never be able to become cause over the mind, which is an important
