Scientology. Mace-Kingsley Ranch. Drugs. Homelessness. Disconnection. Attacks.
Tragedy comes in many forms. Scientology and a life alone contributed to mine.
I like a Chinese saying so much it’s tattooed on my arm:
which literally translates into English as:
Big difficulty not die must have after luck
which when interpreted can be said to mean:
Surviving difficulties brings you great fortune
In the world today people have a real need for clarity. It’s so attractive to think of a belief structure or organization that has the answers. I have a particular strain of mental fortitude which has always led me out of these belief structures. I’m no genius, I’m no savior. I’m just a man in the world, shaking off after much a long life and difficult past.
Everyone’s story is different. Each has tragedy, wonder, difficulties and fortune. My name is Nathan Rich. Herein lies my story.
