Marty Rathbun: Exit Counselor?
Marty was one of the top exec’s in Scientology, part of David Miscavige’s inner circle and when he blew Scientology some time back it was a mighty blow to Miscavige. He was followed in time by Mike Rinder, Ben Shaw and others. There has been a huge drain of resources in Scientology because of David Miscavige’s leadership.
Nothing has been heard of Marty since he blew. For a long time, it was rumored he had died of cancer. I think Miscavige preferred that explanation for Marty’s disappearance over the fact that so many have been fed up with DM’s management style of screaming rampages, beatings and locking people up in the RPF.
Now, Rathbun has reappeared and is offering to help others who have fled David Miscavige’s version of Scientology.
I was a member of the Sea Organization for twenty-seven years. I learned how to audit and troubleshoot virtually any technical problem at every level of Scientology. For years prior to leaving the Church I was regularly called upon by its top-ranking members to resolve its toughest and, in many instances, most high profile cases.Having dug myself out of the dark pit where many who leave the Church land, I began lending a hand to others similarly situated.
A lot of folks seem to be suffering from the inculcated idea that once they depart or cease to slavishly follow every arbitrary dictate they automatically forfeit any spiritual gains they may have attained along the road. Natively conscientious as most beings are, such an evaluation can begin a pernicious dwindlng spiral of self-invalidation and unhappiness.
I understand this phenomenon and the internal dichotomies extant within the organization that bring it about. In the process of reversing the decline in myself and in others certain lessons were learned that might be of some assistance to those who have experienced the same.
I offer a simple program of rehabilitation of previously recognized abilities and education on universal truths and principles of spiritual growth. I do not offer a substitute for Scientology nor am in competition with the Church. I am only offering to share all the skills I have learned – from a wide variety of sources – to help those in need who once formally participated in Scientology but who now hold no hope nor intention of ever seeking help from the Church.
He’s set up a payment plan for his aid that is in stark contrast to how Scientology charges for their services.
My services cost whatever you think they are worth, within your means,after completion. I ask that you pay me one-half of whatever you determine that value to be when you head back home. Then, if after a month you believe your original estimation was correct you can send me the other half, or not. It is entirely up to you.
Offer what you think my services are worth? That sounds more like a religious donation — a passing of the plate, if you will — than Scientology “fixed donations” for it’s expensive self-help courses.
Miscavige should look around him at what he has done. If he doesn’t see that it is time for him to step down, perhaps he will see that a palace coup is inevitable.Explore posts in the same categories: New Voices
