Scientology 'Sea Org' members are a cut above, and have to prove it day and night - 2021-04-17
It was just after Sept 1991. I was 18 years old. The Time magazine cover story about Scientology had been released and, soon after that, there was an amnesty released by David Miscavige that allowed anyone wanting to get off the Rehabilitation Project Force to do so. We just had to write up our transgressions and be forgiven and we would be off the RPF, the Sea Org's prison program. I was one of the first to take advantage. I didn't want to spend another minute on it. I had already been there 2 and a half years.
Once I had been out for a short time I was told I would be a runner for a special project at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre. I needed to report immediately to the trailers at CC and look for Jenny DeVocht or Amy Mortland and report for work. I explained to this person that I had been up for a week. Could I have about 10 hours to sleep and shower please? No, I could have 8 hours and report in the morning. I knew I would not be able to get up if I went to sleep, so I didn't bother. I showered and got my bike and started riding around LA. It was a freedom I hadn't had for years, being stuck in the RPF. I loved it.
