Because the Church of Scientology misuses the Conditions Formulas to abuse and degrade, many newly independent escapees have an understandable reluctance to put them into use on a regular basis.
In fact, it appears that the cult practice of misassigning conditions and wrongly assigning penalties is a long term affair probably dating back to the initial release of KSW #1.
When it became a High Crime to question the authority of the church and its Founder, the long slide into culthood was assured.
The powerful tools designed for improving conditions were employed to punish and degrade, so anyone who has been exposed to this for very long will take a dim view of the miracles that conditions formulas can produce.
Let us take a more enlightened view. If a person finally wakes up to the fact that they are in the grips of a suppressive cult, they generally recognize through the amount of emotional battering they receive that they are in a condition of Doubt.
They manage to extricate themselves from the church/cult and they occasionally publish their Doubt Formula. That is an excellent step on the way to greater freedom, but what happens then?
Some actually start applying Non-Existence with varying degrees of success. After all when joining a new group, this is a reasonable step and would seem to be appropriate.
However, the person may still be emotionally attached to the ideals of Scientology that they subscribed to many years before. They may have completed Doubt on the Church, but they have not come out of Liability as a being who practiced Scientology.
As a result, I have seen formerly dedicated Scientologists who have been out of the church for years and still natter about the church and who also still display the no-sympathy attitude favored by Sea Org members. They are still wearing their Scientology valences and have never handled the emotional charge that resulted from the abuse they received.
This does not need to occur. Applying the Doubt Formula and then the Liability Formula to your first Dynamic should be the next step after writing up a Doubt Formula on the church. After that, you can do Non-Existence in earnest and expect to progress up to power as an Independent if you do the conditions formulas in the proper order.
What flavor of Independent you become is up to you. If you are open to the acquiring of true data on the history of the church and its founder, you will become more and more certain of your facts and will be able to effectively apply the technology to your life. If you do not do the conditions on your own, you will continue to rely on the guidance and advice of others as to what is true and what is not.
Scientology, applied properly, sets people free and gives them the ability to overcome the confusions and barriers of everyday life.
You made a huge investment of time and money to gain valuable knowledge in spite of being in a degrading and suppressive environment. Why not apply some conditions formulas and salvage that knowledge and put it to use?
