    What other worlds do you have evidence of? Can you tell me where they are located, what their language/culture are and what their civilizations look like?

    The thing I find is that despite Chronic Fatigue Syndrome I still find the energy to rattle one off.

    Thanks for the W word. One of my favorites!

    ha ha ha!!! I presume that was aimed at me (the T word that is ... just the T word) ... carry on rattling La La Lou Lou ... but do drop in and say hello when you are having a little break ... (wash your hands first ... obviously).

    You have CFS too? Where do you get the energy???

    My thingy has only one purpose: to connect my bladder to the outside world.

    I'll look into Bowden, but find the Nice guidelines rest and pacing works OKish.
    Avoid too much of anything thats drains energy and youll have some spare to enjoy yourself. Or, yes, better still someone else.:yes:

    This is not specifically relevant to this thread only, but I do wanna say that you guys seem to be living proof that there is one good thing about Scientology.

    Ex-Scientologists are some of the most compassionate people around.

    Maybe we do need Scientology after all... :D

    Compassion? I'm doing my best to be a ruthless brute!

    Seriously, I think you'll find that many of the compassionate exes were first sucked into $cn purely because they were compassionate in the first place--here was something that could help us AND OTHERS.

    It does seem that the cults that recruit on the basis of "helping others" and "saving the planet" get a lot of fundamentally good and compassionate people. Too bad all their energies are harnessed for the exact opposite end.

    Thanks, but you don't have to welcome me. I've been lurking here for a long time, and I am not an ex-scientologist or a scientologist and as such really have nothing to add to any thread. I just thought I'd pipe up on this particular subject.

    Glad you did (pipe up) and you really are most welcome ... there truly are some of the most wonderful people that walk the earth here ... and having been through some mutual horrors we seem to be a funny and sometimes odd group that truly enjoy each others company.

    We seem to laugh more than we cry anyway!

    that's a good point, about couples choosing not to have kids

    i dont think its a barrirer to case gain but i think it CAN be, if it's the kind of homosexual guy who is going to gay clubs every weekend and having random promiscuous sex, but that wouldnt be an issue with being gay so much as being an issue with being promiscuous. i wouldnt see how a guy in a loving commited relationship with another guy could be a barrier to case gain.

    i remember once someone was giving me a little survey about joining the sea org and they asked me if i was homosexual and i said no but i asked why that was one of the questions and the reply was "because we only want the best" or something like that, i can't remember the exact wording. i thought it was a bit odd. and i know it's one of the questions they do before you take auditing or join staff.

    It's not an ideal solution, but some family relationships can be imitated in other ways. I had a substitute brother for about four years (I don't have a biological brother.). Many people thought we were getting it on, but it really was like two brothers. I've also had defacto/surrogate Mums.

    Think about the good times with your family and share those with your friends, and just keep aiming positive thoughts at the rest of your family--in the hope that they will wake up. Start writing letters, "good roads, good weather," and turn the disconnection policy into a reconnection action.

    Outineveryway, gosh that's horrid, really nasty to be ignored by your family because you left, and to be ignored also because of sexual orientation is tough.

    I should know.

    You can't help being who you are, someone able to see through the lies, and someone with the integrity to accept yourself as you are! If you want an L Wrong Cupboard quote, there's probably something in the code of Honour that says, 'go for it, girl friend', or 'I am what I am'.

    Just remember that most people leave at some point, and when they start reading and watching TV again, they'll change their implanted thinking and accept you as the wonderful human being I am sure you are.

    You can only be yourself, so enjoy being you!
