My secret cinemastrology informer just sent me this:
Remember how I said that Tom Cruise would have a response to the power of cinemastrology over Hollywood these days? Well I was close. How come all of a sudden the Scientology nutjobs are pushing their Super Power center in Florida? The thing has been in the works at least since 1991, but all of a sudden now word “leaks” to a Florida paper about how this new Scientology headquarters is going to be built in Clearwater? No way is this a coincidence!
My correspondent is referring to an article that appeared the other day in the St. Petersburg Times, which says, in part, this:
CLEARWATER – Matt Feshbach believes he has super powers. He senses danger faster than most people. He appreciates beauty more deeply than he used to. He says he outperforms his peers in the money management industry.
He heightened his powers of perception in 1995 when he went to Los Angeles and became the first and so far only “public” Scientologist to take a highly classified Scientology program called Super Power…
Under wraps for decades, Super Power now is being prepped for its eventual rollout in Scientology’s massive building in downtown Clearwater. That will be the only place worldwide where the program, much anticipated by Scientologists, will be offered.
A key aim of Super Power is to enhance one’s perceptions – and not just the five senses we all know – hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell.
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard taught that people have 57 “perceptics.” They include an ability to discern relative sizes, blood circulation, balance, compass direction, temperature, gravity and an “awareness of importance, unimportance.”…
Asked about Super Power, church spokesman Ben Shaw provided a written statement: “Super Power is a series of spiritual counseling processes designed to give a person back his own viewpoint, increase his perception, exercise his power of choice, and greatly enhance other spiritual abilities.”
(My correspondent’s prediction about Cruise and cinemastrology was posted last week here.)
What’s very interesting is this tidbit, posted at Rick Ross’s site about religious cults: Katie Holmes’s “Scientology minder,” her chaperone at all press events these days, is Jessica Feshbach Rodriguez, daughter of the Matt Feshbach quoted in the St. Pete Times article.
It certainly looks as if Cruise could be behind this new PR push for Scientology…
