Have you ever had the feeling that everyone around you is nuts? Or the even worse feeling that maybe its not them? After all, they all seem to understand each other - its only you that has to keep rocking the boat and asking Why!
I started wondering Why at a young age. Why did people who loved each other turn around and hurt each other? Why do we have to believe things that dont make any sense? And then do things that make even less sense? Why is it you dont get smarter as you get older? I could accept that bad things happen in every ones life at one time or another but why did REALLY bad things happen...like the Nazis and the concentration camps or pick any one of the horrific things from mans history...Why did they happen? Why did good people standby and let it happen? I took the viewpoint that they let it happen because there were so many more sane people than insane. My opinion and not a popular one - after all, I wasnt there.
It drove me nuts. And then there were the daily insanities that occurred that could have been stopped if anyone just cared enough to notice (my opinion). The more I searched the more I noticed the craziness and the more questions it raised (like how come I can see how crazy things are and yet Ive participated in some extraordinarily stupid things).
Religion seemed to be the field that would address these questions but religion itself is full of inconsistencies, senseless dogma and rituals (my opinion). Dont get me wrong. I believe religion offers a lot to mankind and is, in fact, mans ultimate answer, but it just didnt answer my questions nor did it always seem to be in mans best interests.
I read Dianetics and What is Scientology and have involved myself with Scientology because it specifically addresss the strange human behaviors and self-destructive tendencies that Ive witnessed so much in others and myself. I dont believe that anyone sets out to be a monster because its such a rewarding career choice! So why do we do it? Or go along with it?
I have not involved myself with Scientology because I need another religion, belief system or dogma to follow. Im not looking to follow anything or be saved. Im looking for me, for my power, freedom, and joy; and I want that to be something that is available to all. I believe religion, true religion, is here as a beacon, a guide to assist man and support him as he evolves. In other words, MAN is the miracle - religion is the how in releasing that miracle.
Am I right? Or just nuts? I dunno...well see.
