I am not and never have been a member of The Church of Scientology, so "good-standing" is a meaningless term. I'm a member of the Ron's Orgs, which is a group of Scientology Orgs in the "Freezone", which is basically Scientology outside the CoS. I don't know if you're aware, but in the early eighties, many of the most well-trained Scientologists were purged from the CoS because they protested against the new management's disregard for pretty much every ethical rule that LRH had proposed for Scientology. All of these people (if they're not dead) are now in the Freezone. In fact, there is a widely-believed although not proven theory in the Freezone that the CIA's employment of Ingo Swann in the early 70's and his successful demonstration to them of the validity of Astral Projection / Remote Viewing was the catalyst for the take-over of the CoS by suppressive forces (I won't speculate who they are but you can probably guess). Astral Projection / Remote Viewing is one of the abilites that a person gains (it's called Exteriorisation in Scientology) when they achieve the state of "Clear". It is further developed on OT levels 4-6. It may be noted that Ingo Swann completed up to OT7 in the CoS. "OT" means "Operating Thetan", which is a being that is able to operate independently of a body. A good indication of the current state of the CoS is that OT levels 4-6 are no longer available. I'm sure you can work out for yourself why that is.
