Still trying for 10,000
Though I guess they’ve taken some heat as suddenly they have increased more in the last 12 months than any time before…
But what happens if they GET 10,000? The planet will be fully salvaged?

Dave still too scared he will get the Rona?
Surely he isn’t PTS?
All sounds SO religious…
How come this guy isn’t in the org in Slovakia?
Oh, the don’t have one?
I thought there was unprecedented international expansion based on all the orgs opening everywhere?
Then how about Budapest? That’s much closer than Dublin.

As a tip, your havingness will be MUCH higher by visiting a car dealership than going into a scientology org. They may take your money at the car dealership, but you will leave with a car.

First, they need to find a graphic designer.
Second, their “team” is going to be the answer to expanding the org — sometime in the future. GAT I didn’t do it. GAT III didn’t do it. The Basics didn’t do it. Golden Age of Knowledge didn’t do it. Ideal Org didn’t do it. But THIS ONE will FOR SURE!
Finally, they confirm the news that local orgs are forbidden to deliver Purif, SRD, Pro TRs or Upper Indocs. Sheesh.

I’m not worried about what’s happening in Ukraine. I expect the cult will be handling this. Any day now the IAS will deploy hundreds of yellow Jacketed volunteers to hand out tens of thousands of Way To Happiness booklets so that Ukraine’s militarized zone is literally blanketed with L Ron Hubbard’s common sense moral code, in Russian.
Putin’s men will be curious; of course they will read WTH, have cognitions of magnitude and cease their attacks. Ukrainians also will be curious and take shelter under the bombs and shelling and so forth to read WTH, with their own cognitions.
Enlightened Russians and Ukrainians will then line up at the VM tents for touch assists, nerve assists. They’ll be hugging one another and together clamoring for more enlightenment, more Scientology.
And sure, back at the Kremlin, Putin will at first be very angry about some little booklet interfering with his takeover of Ukraine but its a given that once WTH is in his hands he also will cognite, bigly, about how silly he was, sending in these all these tanks to a sovereign country.
Really, its that simple. Scientology IS going to handle this. The IAS WILL handle this, as they handle ALL world emergencies and catastrophes. All that’s needed and wanted are tens of thousands of Way To Happiness booklets and a few hundred Scientologists to take some time out of their busy days to go to Ukraine. The time is now.
And four Sooper Dooper Sooper Powered OT 8’s will hold hands and go back in time and stop Putin from invading the Ukraine. Or create a giant force field around around the country and teleport all the Russian troops back across the border. Or turn Little Tom into a sooper powered Cruise missile who will fly in and scream at them until they leave.
Wait…wait…load up the biggest cargo plane in the world with tons and tons of bottles of scotch and a tiny rabid dwarf and fly around the Ukraine and he will bombard the Russians with thousands upon thousand of empty bottles. Rinse and repeat, invasion over. Hooray, Dwarfinator Dwinksalot saves the day.
OMG, this is cute.
Yes, really, where the hell IS Big Being #3 And Then There Is Me with this mess in Ukraine going on?
I mean, FLUNK, Tom! You KNOW you’re the Only One who can handle the hell out of an International Hill 10 like this!
Now, put on your Big Being Hat, hop into one of those planes of yours and drop into Ukraine…and handle the hell out of this situation, OK? Or must we get you written up for violating “Hats, Not Wearing” ? START!
😂 😂 😂
And then they will all be required to line up, hands out and filled with rubles to hand over.
But they will be HAPPY. And enlightened, the Scientology Way. 😱
Ha ha ha! Yeah, Briget, good point; “enLIGHTENED” – made lighter – in a very literal sense…
Says new Chicago Org staff member Joy Sigur-Ramza, who looks like a nice lady:
“I’m passionate about family and the future generation. So as my grandkids grow up and time moves on I been asked myself, “What am I leaving them?”
Heads up: Nothing, Ms. Sigur-Ramza. You’re leaving them nothing.
Because in case you still have anything now once you join staff you won’t have it for long.
Some advice: If you want any of your cult friends to show up and pay their respects, try not have your funeral on a Thursday afternoon. When you get ready to drop your bod, keep this in mind.
Entrance to the Bridge Enlightenment Seminar may be free, but exit will cost you $$$. (Possibly $$$$$) 😱

So glad to see Joy Villa on the bridge higher (aka getting even crazier and more self destructive). Also, “Handling Havingness”? Soon Joy will learn how to handle havingness happily!
Loosing my Religion says
Ukraine. At the moment it doesn’t seem to me that things are going very well in terms of flourishing and thriving.
New Era pub is collecting donations to send Hubbard’s books to Ukraine.
I just wonder if they will ever actually send them, and in what language they will be and what edition (maybe they have to empty some basement full of trash.)
I add. If this nonsense of bringing “theta” to certain areas through books really worked then I would donate what I have to send both Putin and Biden books. So maybe they would stop coming here in Europe to play the great leaders and show who is the toughest.
Here in Italy we are the country in the world with the most restrictions on Covid in the world and which also violate the ntra constitution, the economy is worse than ever and electricity has increased by 130% in one month while gas by 90%.
All we needed was a stupid war on our doorstep.
Ah, Loosing – sending sympathies and my hopes for your country to come successfully through this. For all of us, really, as we watch our country (I’m in the US) fight what I hope will be the last stand of the Entitled White Men.
Loosing my Religion says
Thanks Briget. I hope things go well with you too and that no other young people are sent to be shot unnecessarily.
We hope that something changes quickly here, otherwise times are hard.
Among other things, as prime minister we have a guy named Mario Draghi.
Those who know him well then know how ‘lucky’ we are.
Joy Villa gets around.
Jane Doe 2 says
It’s funny that they have guest speaker Kevin Wilson trying to tell others how to boom their stats using the admin tech. Kevin is the last person who should be teaching it. When he ran Sterling Mgmt Systems, his company died out from big to very small and is now only a shadow of its former self. I guess he didn’t use the tech correctly.
Tsu Dho Nimh says
If Hubbard’s “Magical Admin Scale Tech” worked, then Sterling Management wouldn’t have downsized so drastically in the past decade.
In a deposition**, Dana Moraru, Sterling’s public relations director, testified the company had “close to 300” employees in 1994, but by 2015, that number dropped to 25. She cited “the economy” as the reason.
Someone should ask Kevin about that. If the “tech” works, why isn’t Sterling booming?

Dr. Strabismus of Utrecht says
Joy’s gauged her arrival in the UK perfectly: just in time for the post-COVID karaoke season in East Grinstead’s pubs!
A while back they were pushing to get 10,000 on GAK extension courses. In which case I wonder if there would be an implicit threat that members who wanted to remain in good standing would have to sign up, because I have trouble imagining how they’d hit such a number — unless they resorted to a typical ruse like counting each course registration by the same person, and fudging with misleading language.
I would suspect that (if it’s what it is) as a deliberate attempt to conflate it with the goal of 10,000 on or through solo NOTS, hiding the fact that they’ve struggled endlessly to make much progress. But haven’t they also promised something grandiose if the solo NOTS goal is met, meaning that they probably wouldn’t want to be held to actually having to deliver on it?
I remember that quota of having 10,000 on or through Solo Nots was set in the late 90’s or in 2000. That was 22 years ago. How come in 22 years they can’t get 10,000 on or through Solo Nots in 22 years? Could it be that they can’t get new people in to Scn, or the ones on Solo Nots are dead or PTS or ethics particles? (as reported by one Solo Nots C/S who left), Or that the ones on Solo Nots and beyond, many have left the church altogether? Hmm?
Cyndi, I doubt that the CofS has all that many more than 10,000 active members these days. Having two-thirds or half of the membership on or through is no longer realistic, and they rely for having gotten as far as they have on counting a lot of people who did so fairly long ago now, and many of whom have either left or are deceased, essentially using their go-to ruse of cumulative statistics over history.
Yep, nothing like counting dead and blown bodies to get the count up.
It’s so hard to sell their quackery and exorcism these days. No wonder, all the greater understanding of their whole shebang by the public.
Who wants to learn they are infested with Xenu’s dumped “body-thetans” requiring the five long levels of Hubbard OT 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 exorcism?
It’s really an impossible bunch of “LRH products” to sell.
I have my 1 minute definition of Scientology down really quick now. And people once they hear it, only like to applaud Leah Remini for what she and Mike do!!!!
The frequently most asked question, is “What Is Scientology” by which people want to know what are the practices of Scientology.
That I answer in 30 seconds. The first next question I get asked, is the celebs, Tom Cruise, is he a sucker or not, etc. Yes, and then I refer to the Rona Barrett great 1980s interview that peeled back Tom’s Catholic priest inclinations, etc.
Then I get back to explaining their “thetan” and “body-thetans” and the Native State goal that none of them achieve. Pseudo-therapy and exorcism, to achieve “OT” powers none of them gain, and no one gets to Native State by a long shot. Pay as you go, and nasty due to the Hubbard cult bureaucracy hard bound rules.
No winning, only declining, and celebs pampered to stay faithful.
‘Splain something to me if you will. I thought that part of this “religion” was being able to avoid or do away with sickness and diseases? Isn’t that one of their “Super Powers?”
Then why do they not have the big celebrations and stuff like before? Hey, they are Super People now. They won’t get sick. At least that is what is taught, right?
A little southern saying:
My mom raised an ugly youngin’, she didn’t raise no fool.
Mark Kamran says
You nailed it, LRH was fiction writer, he wrote fiction ,
he sold fiction.
In fiction you live in an universe created by the author like Lord of the Ring , Games of Throne Star wars etc etc. oftenly labelled as ” Cult classic” by critics.
Billion dollar comic, toy and gaming industry is built over the characters and events of such Cult classics.
Cults, vedio games ,controversy theories etc part of fiction, you read them enjoy them and contribute the billion dollar industry revenue.
Answer to.you question , around 85 years back some one created a character Superman ,and ever since kids wear that costume and feel good, being Superman.
No one stop an adult to feel ” good” by being part of Cult promising Super powers, it’s all part of “business”
Jere Lull says
What happens if they get 10,000?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING noticeable by anyone.
They have a moment of respite from all their stat pushing, before the new “game” is programmed and started.
It’s all just compartmenting statisizable targetted out hype false promises fulfilling their wishful thinking.
At least in Buddhism, “nothing” has the additional definition of enlightenment. Nothing attained, in Scientology, due to the framing and definition of “nothing” is the Hubbard negative “non havingness” definition.
Were Scientology really to produce the enlightenment “nothingness” (Native State, the supposed state of a “thetan” at “God” like ability to create a universe from scratch), then that’d be someothing. Because “Native State” isn’t real, it’s bogus selling the negative “nothing” and falsely claiming it is something.
The Hubbard captive audience cult crowd mentality, all Hubbard’s misuse of words and modern cult word play.
They wait for the inevitable deaths (from old age or from practicing Scn) and the inevitable blows, and memory of the prior 10k push to be long enough ago that they can start again in a new unit of time pushing for 10k.
yea, and it will drag on for decades, the waiting, and stumbling along with Hubbard’s misused words messing their minds up.
Hubbard set up this mental tripping over their thoughts faux “religion” that is quackery pseudo-tberapy and exorcism of dead space aliens’ souls that infest all humans and need OT 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 exorcism.
it’s a huge morass of bad ideas to extract from, or reform, and horrible plight for Scientologists attempting to make this quackery empire work.
Mary Kahn says
I think they are actually going in the wrong direction. With all the deaths, SP declares, under the radars and those who go on to do OT VIII and then drift away quietly, well, I’m pretty sure they’re probably honing in on 300 people on or through OT VII. Maybe.
