    The Independent Reformed Church of Scientology is now live.

    Announcement on Milestone Two: A change has come

    https://milestonetwo.wordpress.com/2019/04/07/a-change-has-come/


    The announcement on Milestone Two has a very interesting PS.:

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    PS. Thank you and hats off to Merrell Vannier for being instrumental in helping us achieve this.

    * * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * *

    You will recall that Merrell Vannier is one of the people behind both the [Independent Scientology] Religious Liberty League (RLL) and the First Independent Church of Scientology (FICS).

    Reading this, and the comments from those at Milestone Two, it appears that nothing has been learned from the events and revelations of the last forty years.

    Expressing exclamations and Hubbardisms, they're excited about recreating Scientology as it was before Miscavige. That's their idea of "reform."

    oh well.

    Maybe someone could drop by and see what they have there. Is it simply a mailing address for them? See, for example, https://www.davincivirtual.com/loc/us/california/pasadena-virtual-offices/facility-733

    I bet they don't deliver auditing/training/cramming/CSing at that address.

    The Independent Reformed Church of Scientology (IRCS) has produced a Grade Chart.

    https://scientologyreformed.org/original-scientology

    [​IMG]

    It appears the Grade Chart of the Independent Reformed Church of Scientology (IRCS), above, is identical to the Grade Chart of the First Independent Church of Scientology (FICS), below.

    This, at least, is a Grade Chart with the old fun (recycled Rosicrucianism) upper OT levels, which sounded so neat but no one could actually do, beyond some quirky psychic accident, or their imagination, or "I thought my phone would ring and it did!" confirmation bias.

    It's good to the extent that it might draw some people out of Scientology Inc. - who have secretly yearned to do these old upper OT levels.

    The idea is that the CIA and/or Markabians took over Scientology to prevent people from doing these upper levels.

    (According to David Mayo, it was Hubbard who removed these levels from the Grade Chart, just as it was Hubbard who redefined the state of "Clear" downward, and mangled the middle of the Grade Chart for PR and marketing purposes.)

    I see the middle Grade Chart is still mangled on these charts. What do they do with "Dianetic Clears" who never ran the Clearing Course (implants) when they finally do (old) OT 4 where one mocks up and then unmocks the Clearing Course implants? (To ensure that one is resistant to any possible future evil extraterrestrial implanting). Do they tell them they'll never have "certainty of self as a being"? and not to worry about it, and just skip (old) OT 4? Come to think of it that shouldn't be a problem since "Dianetic Clears" have already made their peace with never having the other EPs of the middle Grade Chart over which they skipped.

    But what do they do with NOTs completions who still have somatics?, and who can't actually do the OT actions that NOTs plus the old upper OT levels were supposed to make possible?

    Or is that unimportant if some were coaxed off the Scientology Inc. hamster wheel into the less restrictive milieu of reformed Scientology? where there's a greater chance that they might, eventually, move beyond Scientology itself?

    Perhaps.

    So the Independent Reformed Church of Scientology has obtained 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in the U.S. How that worked with the cult was that public paying any official CofS entity got to deduct their "charitable donations" <spit>, at least in the US.

    But surely that won't work the same with some indie US Scnist out in the wild paying his local service provider for "original LRH auditing"?

    I don't see how the IRS can classify this group...(or the Cult?) as a "Public Charity."

    Lana Mitchell has explained the need for the new Independent Reformed Church of Scientology given the prior existence of the First Independent Church of Scientology.

    https://milestonetwo.wordpress.com/2019/03/31/what-would-it-take/

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    At the end of 2017 the First Independent Church of Scientology was registered by Jim Fonda, and I got excited that there was a possibility to create a ‘second terminal’ to break the monopoly and suppressive hold that the Church of Scientology has on the field.

    I was hopeful that we had another opportunity to connect up the field and get standard Scientology delivery occurring. Despite the continued noise in the media, we can help people recover from what has occurred and I liken it to the fall-out after a major cataclysm or war. There are people out there, thousands of them, that need assistance, and by using standard tech we can bring relief and work to try and sort out this mess.

    Unfortunately Jim Fonda, despite the best of intentions, has a different plan for the First Independent Church of Scientology which is focused more on a Div 6 public, so the new church has not progressed as I would have hoped and it does not fill the much needed gap within the field to create a new 3rd dynamic group.

    So that brings us to present time.

    A long 10-year story — but really only a snippet of time in the time-track of us eternal beings.

    We have pockets of delivery happening all over this planet. There are many well-intentioned, honest, hard-working and sincere Scientologists who are delivering Scientology in the field. There are a handful of loopy squirrels and one or two criminal rip-off merchants, but the majority are on the rails and just doing what they love – moving people up LRH’s Bridge. Tom Martiniano, Chris Black, Ingrid Smith, Mike Eldredge, Pierrot Bartnik, Becky Buchanan, Carolyn Groff and many more – these are good people doing good things.

    So where to from here?

    There is a plan to try and create a new 3rd dynamic again – and if that fails, we will try again, and if that fails, we will try again.

    A change has come.

    The International Freezone Association operating as The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists: A change has come.

    A change has come

    by Lana Mitchell

    ANNOUNCEMENT: L.Ron Hubbard's philosophy and legacy can now be found in the friendly environment of the new Independent Reformed Church of Scientology (IRCS).

    The new church is wholly independent of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), Church of Scientology International (CSI), and the Church of Spiritual Trust (CST) (collectively and loosely known as the Church of Scientology).

    The new global church is for Scientologists who believe in and practice LRH's original philosophy and working technology and have either left the church of their own accord or been expelled from the church.

    It is for individuals who are seeking spiritual enlightenment through the religious beliefs and practices of the original philosophy and the technology relating to that philosophy, as originally expounded by L.Ron Hubbard, and who have no desire to be a part of the current Church of Scientology.
    We believe that man is free to follow his own path.

    His or her religious practices and beliefs are not constricted by any copyright monopoly, therefore people wishing to seek enlightenment through the practices of Scientology are not bound by law to attend only the official church (any more than Christians being bound by law to attend only Catholic churches, or Judaists bound to be Orthodox).

    Details on the new church can be found at Independent Reformed Church of Scientology.

    A change has come. We are pretty excited about it!

    So IFAP have joined up. Not unexpected. I wonder what will happen when if the cult wins the ongoing legal battle over the trademarks.

    .

    They seem genuinely exhilarated about their new org board, their new grade chart and their new intention to really get in Ron's Standard Tech.

    The grade chart has returned to the "old OT VI" with a claimed EP of a being who can operate exterior. They are genuinely exhilarated about being able to deliver the state of exterior too!

    Problem is, none of the above means anything, because they can't deliver anything they are promising.

    This is not only a bad wholetrack "rewind" of Scientology from the old days, but it's worse.

    At least "then" it was new.

    Now, they are genuinely exhilarated about their "stuck picture" of the late 1960s/early 70's Scientology.

    Being "stuck down the track" doesn't sound OT for some odd reason.

    Hey, I heard that you can drop what you're doing and join the RV Org, which is the new hip thing to do in the IRCofS. They are the most dedicated, ethical folks on the planet, and with their new fleet of RV's, they can run away, I mean they can be Fabian and evade the authorities, I mean keep the SPs at bay.

    Forgive me.

    It looks just like modern day Scientology with Ideal Orgs and all. They use the same tech that created Scientology and they expect a different outcome.

    Independent Reformed Church of Scientology criticizes delivery of the Survival Rundown by the Church of Scientology International.

    To avoid confusion, please note the Independent Reformed Church of Scientology uses and embeds the Milestone Two blog.

    Overrun to the moon and back

    https://milestonetwo.wordpress.com/2019/05/10/overrun-to-the-moon-and-back/

    * * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

    Some of the out-tech and arbitraries within the Church of Scientology’s delivery of the Survival Rundown that I have become aware of include:

    1. A Supervisor insisting that the preclears continue on each individual CCH/Survival Rundown process for at least 3 -4 hours to “give each process time to bite”.

    2. Stating “the way out is the way through” when a person has been on a process for an extended period of time, feels they have achieved the EP of that process and has protest and upset relating to it.

    3. Adding more and more processes to the Rundown, creating a never-ending hidden standard of what is to be achieved.

    4. Co-audit twins not sufficiently trained or grooved-in on EPs or session admin, so when release with cognition is achieved, it is not noted on the worksheets and the Supervisor then insists on the process being continued.

    5. Reviews done when there was upset, but not doing a Scientology C/S One first, so the preclear has confusions on what an e-meter is, how it works, what is expected as a preclear, or even how a correction list works. With no proper Scientology C/S one, misunderstoods left unhandled on words that directly relate to the phenomena the pc is experiencing (such as the word exterior).

    6. D of P not trained on using the meter, so does D of P ‘meetings’ instead — off the meter.

    7. Ignoring originations of exterior.

    8. Changing the ability gained on the Objectives from LRH’s “Oriented in the present time of the physical universe” to Dave Miscavige’s “Oriented in the present time of the physical universe with new perception, awareness and control of one’s environment, body, mind, thought and people.” (maybe this is how he can get OTs to agree to go back and spend hundreds of hours re-doing the first step of the Grade Chart).
