Gathering Minds

Show And Tell

For those that need Rules of the Road, here is a sample of the type of communication that is welcomed on the Forum and in commentaries. Clearly distinguished is the lack of opinionated thoughts, ideas and concepts. Clearly delineated is knowledge and, of course, communication basics.

A: I think that auditing creates a vacuum in which the Auditor takes advantage of the pc. I see it all the time in the actions of those who make posts through the various ‘freezone’ media outlets.

B: Yes, I can see your point, but what exactly are the actions that you are referring to and what is the process that creates the vacuum. Also, it would need to be made clear, what do you have in mind when you say "takes advantage of the pc"? I do know though, what you are saying.

A: Good questions, I haven’t really thought it all the way through as to what exactly happens to create the vacuum that I was talking about. From my own experience, I’ve read the posts that people in the ‘freezone’ make and it’s pretty obvious that through the name calling and innuendos, there are some serious issues going on.

As far as taking advantage of the pc goes, I don’t really have any personal experience but I’m thinking that after reading the constant entheta posts that are made in the ‘freezone’, the so-called ‘freezone’ auditors who make those posts are obviously not concerned with spiritual freedom. They must want something else and the pc’s that they audit must be giving it to them, in SOME way.

Here is a sample of the same conversation in a form that is both opinionated and ignorant.

B: Well, ‘A’, you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Auditing FREES a thetan from it’s problems. Perhaps you should go get some auditing from a real auditor, then you can come back and make an intelligent remark about it. Until then, go for a walk or something.

Here at FZA, we are not concerned with opinions, whether they come via enforcement or not. Knowledge, on the other hand, comes through investigation and the way to perform that investigation is to examine data.

If you cannot help another to examine data, then you are obviously unable to examine that same data for yourself. Behind all the thoughts, ideas and concepts that make up this Universe, there are known facts. It is those facts in which this Forum owes it’s existence. Knowledge, through investigation, will open more doors than you could ever possibly imagine.

When you begin to close doors, knowledge takes it’s leave.

Opinions are a closed door but can be used as a starting point in one’s investigation of their own universe.

When you close the door of Knowledge on another, you do much, much more, than just isolate that person, you isolate yourself to an even greater degree.

It can get quite lonely out in the dark.

When you are ready to come out of the dark, we will be here, waiting for you.
