The Afterlife and Scientology

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

AFTERLIFE: The 'Bardol Thodol' and 'Sidpa Thodol' ofrepparttar 'Tibetan Book ofrepparttar 137295 Dead' with a forward by Carl Jung and Lama Anagarika Govinda, by Evans Wentz is a great insight torepparttar 137296 hallucinatory nature ofrepparttar 137297 images we carry forward beyondrepparttar 137298 grave. These hallucinations (beliefs) go away andrepparttar 137299 'white light' is all that remains. The 'white light' may not be seen by those still attached to this material plane and its' obsessions or propaganda for quite some period of time. The interstitial states of purgatory and limbo(words with all kinds of fables that are far from true, associated with them) arerepparttar 137300 realms wherein these devious 'visions' play out their energy uponrepparttar 137301 soul of unenlightened 'followers' of many belief systems. That is a simplistic overview, to sayrepparttar 137302 least.

Moody's work on 'Life After Death' documents in real epistemic terms a plethora of cases that boil down to 15 stages that are common and eight of which most people go through. From conversations with people who've had heart by-pass or other Near Death Experiences (NDEs) I am sure there is much merit in his work. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross was a great student and scholar from UCLA who I met and heard talk of these things. Inrepparttar 137303 final analysis I find much ofrepparttar 137304 quantum physical world hasrepparttar 137305 best descriptions of what kind of realities other dimensions allow. However, we are all not able to understand that which we are not physically involved with, so allow me to visit with 'Seth Speaks' by Jane Roberts as well as L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. for a moment; he says:

"The explanation is sort of long and complicated. The basic rationale is that there are some powers in this universe that are pretty strong. As an example, Hitler was involved inrepparttar 137306 same black magic andrepparttar 137307 same occult practices that my father was. {This might explain whyrepparttar 137308 Allies used Hubbard and Crowley, Dion Fortune and Ian Fleming in a counter psychic group.} The identical ones. Which, as I have said, stem clear back to before Egyptian times. It's a very secret thing. {We covered a lot of it in 'Science' from 'Genesis ofrepparttar 137309 Grail Kings' and a Christian mystery school called Rosicrucianity.}. Very powerful and very workable and very dangerous. Brainwashing is nothing compared to it. The proper term would be 'soul cracking.' It's like cracking openrepparttar 137310 soul, which then opens various doors torepparttar 137311 power that exist,'repparttar 137312 satanic and demonic powers…

{My younger brother is a thirty year member who has signed a billion year soulful contract. He thinks L. Ron Jr. isrepparttar 137313 antithesis of a 'realized being' and all Scientologists HATE him. That is a pretty good recommendation in itself, if you look closely at this organization that uses every hypnotic and other mind-control method available to milk people of everything including their soul. If it isn't 'organized crime' I don't know what is! Yet, inrepparttar 137314 scheme of things they tell more truth than most who they imitate - like psychiatry and education. Ritalin is a favourite rallying point of theirs.}

Simply put, it's like a tunnel or an avenue or a doorway. {Meditation takes one through this torepparttar 137315 white light that afterlife portends. In this processrepparttar 137316 physical individual onrepparttar 137317 Scientology pathways never gets torepparttar 137318 next realm, unless atrepparttar 137319 OTO [Ordre Templis Orientalis] 'fin-de-siecle’ suicidal retirement plan, that Hubbard studied inrepparttar 137320 Crowleyan Thelemic school as noted in many documents - butrepparttar 137321 Scientologists say he was working as an undercover agent. FOR WHOM?!}. Pulling that power into yourself through another person--and using women {Inrepparttar 137322 Crowleyan adaptation ofrepparttar 137323 Star-Fire Ceremony which uses 'Scarlet Women' forrepparttar 137324 monthly menstruum so full of hormones like melatonin. Hubbard also was a Rosicrucian.}, especially -- is incredibly insidious {Even Crowley thought Hubbard was a nut to think he could commandrepparttar 137325 goddess Babalon to do his bidding.}. It makes Dr. Fu Manchu look like a kindergarten student. It isrepparttar 137326 ultimate vampirism,repparttar 137327 ultimate mind-phuck, instead of going forrepparttar 137328 blood, you're going for their soul. And you take drugs in order to reach that state {The drug thing is OUT now that L. Ron Sr. was drugged out of his miserable existence.} where you can, quite literally, like a psychic hammer, break their soul, and pullrepparttar 137329 power through. He designed his Scientology Operating Thetan techniques to dorepparttar 137330 same thing. But, of course, it takes a couple of hundred hours of auditing and mega-thousands of dollars {Current data suggestsrepparttar 137331 coursework to 'the Bridge' runs over $300,000 dollars. My brother gives donations to causes like prison programs and mental health as well. His daughter is a slave atrepparttar 137332 Clearwater HQ, who works for nothing, etc.} forrepparttar 137333 privilege of having your head turned into a glass Humpty Dumpty--shattered into a million pieces. It may sound like incredible gibberish, but it made my father a fortune {The Church(?) got $600,000,000 from his estate and it was likely to have been a murder according to some knowledgeable officials.}."

In Egypt there is a temple with drawings onrepparttar 137334 walls or plaques that show souls inside tubes. This temple of Bendera is probably an archaeologic proof of what has been going on in most adept religious pursuits for millenia if not eons. Crowley was claimed by Hubbard as 'his close personal friend' inrepparttar 137335 Philadelphia Lectures that psychology thought his ideas were worth considering inrepparttar 137336 early 50s. Crowley wasrepparttar 137337 self-avowed '666' and he apparently never actually (physically) met Hubbard. Yet Hubbard claims to be a continuance of Crowley just as Crowley claimedrepparttar 137338 same inrepparttar 137339 line of Caligostro and Eliphas Levi, among others. The 'soul-grabbing' possibility is not mere 'hocus-pocus'; you should be concerned about how your own soul is pre-empted by 'beliefs' you have little personal control and knowledge over or about.

Walk into any home today and you are almost certain to find something which has been purchased from a New Age outlet. Crystals are of course everywhere. The Buddha himself may appear inrepparttar home office, looking well-fed and smiling as he does duty as a paperweight or mantelpiece decoration. Wind chimes may markrepparttar 137182 entrance to a room or may be heard jangling merrily inrepparttar 137183 garden. The design of eitherrepparttar 137184 house or garden may well have been inspired byrepparttar 137185 supposed minimalist principles of Zen Buddhism. You won't have to sniff too hard to catchrepparttar 137186 heady aroma of incense fromrepparttar 137187 mysterious Orient. And if you look carefully you might even find a crystal ball or two. In one well-known UK charity shop I have even seen crystal balls stacked up next torepparttar 137188 cash register in muchrepparttar 137189 same way as supermarkets display shelves of sweets and chewing gum inrepparttar 137190 area where you line up to pay for your groceries, cleverly taking advantage of those last minute impulse buys ("Oh, I'll just take one of those crystal balls before I leave!).

Never Fear! ***********

Look throughrepparttar 137191 phone directory and you will see hordes of jobbing alternative practitioners. Aromatherapists, Reiki experts, Shiatsu (no, it isn't a little dog!) and any number of other self-certificated experts all clamouring to have a go at curing your bad back or saving your rocky relationship.

Should you lose your appointment book, never fear! Find out whatrepparttar 137192 future has in store by consulting someone who will (for a fee) read your Tarot cards, your palms, tea leaves or probably with a little persuasion (or an extra fee!)repparttar 137193 contents of your trash can.

Doctors are yesterday's news. Better to call a hypnotherapist, colour therapist, graphologist or numerologist who can at one andrepparttar 137194 same time (for a fee) tell you all about your past, your future - and whether you even have a future.

Expensive *********

When you wish to relax atrepparttar 137195 end of a hard day you can play special relaxation tapes of whales, waves breaking onrepparttar 137196 shore or Australian aborigine didgeridoo music. Your home will of course have been designed down torepparttar 137197 smallest detail by a knowledgeable, highly-trained and very expensive Feng Shui consultant who probably charges more than your lawyer! Hasrepparttar 137198 world gone mad???

All ofrepparttar 137199 aforementioned distractions and more fit neatly intorepparttar 137200 loose category of New Age. A lot of people are very serious about New Age interests and contrary to what you may think, I would berepparttar 137201 last to want to trivialise their beliefs. Whatever works for them is fine by me. Except for one thing. New Age practices have become so heavily commercialized thatrepparttar 137202 original spiritual components have pretty well lost their integrity by now and, inrepparttar 137203 West at least, are little more than products and services in a very competitive market.

Ever since Madame Blavatsky andrepparttar 137204 Theosophists (the forerunners ofrepparttar 137205 modern New Age Movement) signed their exclusive channeling deal withrepparttar 137206 so-called Ascended Masters back inrepparttar 137207 nineteenth century, religious and spiritual beliefs have been borrowed haphazardly from any number of world religions. Beliefs have been ripped out of their natural environmental and historical context. Ever since, those beliefs have been blatantly sold to a spiritually vulnerable public that has a big fat disposable income and could not wait to spend it.
