It’s Thanksgiving today in the United States. It is traditionally a day to spend with family (though in these Covid times everything is disrupted) and appreciate the good in your life.
For many who read this they are reminded of the family and friends they are not sharing today with for another reason than Covid — scientology’s inhumane practice of disconnection.
But even if you miss a loved one today because of disconnection, you can be thankful that you are not in the bubble, but have the freedom to think for yourself. Those who have disconnected themselves from you do not have that luxury. They must comply. They can’t choose their friends or who they are allowed to associate with unless the organization approves. Many of them will not have time to enjoy this day at all — Thursdays are not good days for “holidays” in scientology. They will be missing many of the things that make Thanksgiving special. So, be thankful you are no longer in that bubble, if for nothing else.
Though my two eldest children are disconnected from me, I am enormously appreciative of the blessings I have in my life now. My wife, boys and friends. Their love and friendship is not conditional on the approval of anyone. I am also extremely thankful that I can think for myself and act based on what I believe is right. Not the morals imposed by others who seek only to control me. I can speak my mind. I can associate with anyone I choose. I give thanks today to being free of the scientology prison of belief.
In turn, I hope you are able to recognize and be thankful for what you DO have.
Have a wonderful day whatever you are doing.
