Danny Masterson’s Long History with the Church of Scientology: ‘I’m a Spiritual Being Who Likes to Understand Why Things Happen in the World’

Danny Masterson has had a long history with the Church of Scientology.

On Friday, PEOPLE confirmed that the 40-year-old actor, best known for his role in That ’70s Show, is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department over sexual assault allegations.

According to documents obtained by The Underground Bunker, journalist Tony Ortega’s blog about Scientology, the three women who have accused Masterson are reportedly also Scientologists. They claim that the Church of Scientology pressured them not to contact authorities about the accusations. (The Church of Scientology did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)

Former Scientologist Leah Remini told The Underground Bunker that her recent docuseries — Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath — prompted one of the women to come forward.

In a statement to PEOPLE on Friday, a rep for Masterson denies the allegations. “Based on reading the anti-Scientology blog that posted this story, these false allegations appear to be motivated to boost Leah Remini’s anti-Scientology television series since only came forward after connecting with Leah Remini,” reads a portion of the statement.

Though Masterson (whose brother Christopher played Francis in Malcolm in the Middle, half-sister Alanna plays Tara in The Walking Dead, and half-brother Jordan is also an actor) grew up in a family that practiced Scientology, he didn’t really notice the affect it had on him until junior high school. In an interview with Paper magazine in 2015, Masterson opened up about his upbringing in the Church of Scientology, how it has impacted his life, and how he chooses to continue practicing the religion.

“In Scientology, there’s no belief system or anyone who’s worshipped or whatnot; it’s all sort of like college of the mind,” he told the publication. “And so I grew up not having to go and pray to anyone. I grew up just sort of like, ‘Oh, if you’re thirsty, drink water.’ ”

It wasn’t until Masterson was 15 years old that he started to study the book Dianetics, a set of ideas created by the Church’s founder L. Ron Hubbard that studies the mind.

“ basically spent his entire life studying every great religion, found everything that worked, found things that didn’t work, took the stuff that worked, started like questioning it and grilling it and drilling it, going over and over until he could find the things that worked every time, guaranteed,” he said.

Despite the fact that his step-father, Joe Reaiche, was deemed a “suppressive person” by the Church in 2005 for questioning certain teachings, according to Daily Mail, Masterson admitted he has never been bullied for his or his family’s beliefs.

“I’ve never been given a hard time my entire life about my belief system or my philosophy in life,” he said.

He added: “If you’re curious about something, I’ll give you my one or two-minute version of my opinion on it, but it’s also like that’s my opinion on what I read. You should read it for yourself, and decide whether you agree or disagree with it.”

However, there is a specific field that Scientologists typically disagree with, according to Masterson.

“You will not find a Scientologist who does not f—ing hate psychiatrists,” he admitted. “Because their solution for mental and spiritual problems is drugs.”

“Scientology handles those things, those mental problems that people have,” he continued. “It gets rid of them. It gets rid of them by that person doing it for themselves. That’s the solution to depression.”

Despite those questioning his beliefs, Masterson has remained loyal to the Church.

“I work, I have a family and I’m a spiritual being who likes to understand why things happen in the world and want to learn more so that I can have them not affect me adversely,” he said. “So if that’s weird, then, well, you can go f— yourself.”

Why Caitlyn Jenner Got It Right and What It Means for Us Spiritual Folks

Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair spread broke the internet! My initial reaction was wow, she’s beautiful! However, after seeing updates on my various social media newsfeeds, my reaction shifted from joy to that of frustration.

I’ve seen posts that compared Caitlyn’s bravery to others who were, “braver.” I’ve seen posts that compared Caitlyn to other celebrities who underwent other changes. I believe that a certain group of people are missing the point here.

Bruce Jenner’s transformation to Caitlyn Jenner isn’t about some kind of point system of who’s braver than who, or why this act of transformation is accepted while others are not. This is about finally being able to live an authentic life and repair relationships.

I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live.

–Caitlyn Jenner, Vanity Fair

The transformation was simply bravery at a different capacity.

Comparing is a major downfall in life that can hinder people from ever accomplishing their goals. I’ve seen this happen sometimes in the spiritual/holistic community, where people feel like they don’t deserve (i.e. a satisfying income, valuable clients) because their business isn’t a “real business.”

For example, when I started my spiritual business in 2010, I could have easily compared myself to other spiritual entrepreneurs who were famous and think, how can I possibly do what they have done or something better and be successful? Or, maybe think that my spiritual gifts aren’t as profound.

Then there’s the question of why now? Well, I have an answer for that too. I’m 100 percent sure that if Bruce Jenner decided to become Caitlyn in the ’80s or ’90s, she likely would not have been accepted, and we would probably have never heard of her again. At best, Caitlyn would only have been acknowledged by a few and her career would be all but over. After reading the interview, I believe that now was the right time for the transformation.

The last question I’ve heard is, “Why continue to get married and have children?” My response is the following:

– It really is none of our business to try to ascertain the mindset of Caitlyn and her actions. That’s a conversation reserved solely for her and her family alone.

– But, let’s think about the social climate at the time and what (formerly) Bruce represented. She was an Olympic hero. Were there any times when we decided to live up to people’s expectations and put our own thoughts and emotions to the side? The answer is most likely “yes.”

– Let’s take a look at ourselves and think about the things we do or don’t do — before we start to over-analyze or condemn a person for their decision.

Divine timing is important.

While it is people’s prerogative if they choose to agree or to not accept, or even acknowledge Caitlyn, what we can take away from this whole situation is that Caitlyn (like Laverne Cox) are symbols of courage and transformation. They are the symbols for the teenager who feels alone, for that adult who was living a lie to fit into society, and to that person who was once narrow-minded.

They represent courage. They are the visual aid that many people need to help them break personal barriers in their lives.

Spirituality speaking, this is a huge event because we are constantly changing as individuals. I can personally say that I am not the same person I was five years ago. We are constantly shedding our old selves to live authentically, and embrace the new us — whatever form it may be.

Surfing the Spiritual Sport

Over the last few years, I’ve taken up summer surfing in a major way. For me, it’s an exhilarating and dangerous sport — and a spiritual experience.

It’s fun, but I still prefer my bikini.

It all began when my first company, Social Diva, hosted several day trips from NYC that involved yoga and surfing. We transported about 40 people to the beach, offered yoga on the sand and optional surf lessons for those who wanted them. I took a few of the lessons myself. During my first lesson, I managed to stand up on the first wave. My 17-year-old instructor was impressed.

“Are you sure you’ve never surfed before?” he asked. I was flattered by high praise from such a young, cool surfer. I said no, figuring I didn’t need to tell him about that one time when I was 17 myself.

The only thing I remember from that experience is that I immediately thought, This is not for me. I’ll stay and look good in my bikini on the beach instead.

Said differently, I enjoyed my lesson. I thought surfing was super fun, but I wasn’t hooked yet.

When I got hooked

But it seems the power of surfing is more of a sticky sport than I first realized. For example, during Social Diva’s event, one attendee came out of the water with a bloody knee.

“Wow, are you OK?” I asked.

“Oh my god,” she responded. “That was awesome!!!!”

I was amazed, but it wasn’t until two summers ago that I woke up one morning and realized I wanted to learn how to surf myself. When I asked a good friend who’s known for taking newcomers into the water to teach me, he offered to take me on the spot.

“Now?” I asked “OK! Let’s go!”

This time around, I wiped out on the first wave and hit my head. I hit it so hard that I needed to go into shore and take something called a “surfer’s cold shower.” The cold water made me scream, but it was partly from pleasure. I was so excited to be surfing!

The spiritual journey

As I continued surfing, I found paddling, getting up and riding a wave to be absolutely exhilarating. At times, wipeouts were easy. Other times, they were terrifying. A few times, while being tousled under water, I felt extreme fear that I was about to die.

Through it all, I experienced a lot of unexpected support from the guys in my life who also happen to surf. Every time something happened, they’d say, “Oh yeah, that’s happened to me.” That sense of community encouraged me to keep at it during those first few tries, and they still do.

Plus, every time I resurface above and the water, I get calm again. And I wonder why I bothered with fear at all.

Today, I surf often during the summer. The conditions can change daily or even hourly at the same surf spot, and I like that I keep going back, regardless. In a sense, I’m cultivating perseverance.

Plus, the entire experience is richly spiritual. There’s the beauty of the ocean, the sky, the beach. These surf spots, to me, are what heaven will feel like. Sitting on the board, whether I’m waiting for waves or resting, is a simple meditation.

Ultimately, surfing is a metaphor. Moving through the waves is like moving through life. Sometimes the waves are bigger than others, but you just keep on paddling — no matter if you just wiped out gently or pretty hard. Of course, the best moments are those when I catch a perfect ride and ride all the way to shore. It’s exhilarating, empowering and beautifully spiritual.

Surf’s up.

Renowned as a photographer and as an environmentalist, Adams’ work manages to capture the magnificent power of nature, which is probably why his work has endured among the most beloved portfolios of American art.

Here are 5 of his stunning photographs, accompanied by quotes from the artist:
