"Many beings live lives of quiet correctness without ever being once making anything do anything. Things around them just happen to be orderly. The social system props them up.

"But someday--bang--the society gets into a turmoil which knocks out the props.

"Then we see that there were too few present who could make things go right and that is the end of the society.

"Thus died old civilizations." --L. Ron Hubbard

"Our attitude toward life makes every possible difference to our living. It is not necessary to study a thousand ancient books to discover this fact; but sometimes it needs to be pointed out again. Life does not change so much as our attitude toward it." --L. Ron Hubbard

Here's a tool for solving any upset:
"While it is commonly believed to take two to make a fight, a third party must exist and must develop it for actual conflict to occur." -- L. Ron Hubbard


Too many times in the past I have experienced a real upset with a person, or I have seen others in a real upset, only to discover that there was a hidden person who was instigating the upset. Once I discovered this and it was known, the upset vanished and things went back to normal.

Thought for the day:
"The basic difference between aberration and sanity, between inability and ability, between illness and health, is the knowingness of causation by self opposed to unknown causation by others or other things." -- L. Ron Hubbard

I'm sharing these favorite quotes, but I sincerely recommend that anyone wanting to really understand and appreciate the genius of L. Ron Hubbard read one of his books.

These are available in most bookstores and libraries and can be purchased from Bridge Publications - publishers of L. Ron Hubbard's non-fiction works in Dianetics and Scientology.

"Goodness and badness, beautifulness and ugliness are alike considerations and have no other basis than opinion." --L. Ron Hubbard
"There can be no purpose worth contemplating which does not include happiness and experience. When a man is no longer able to envision happiness as a part of his future, that man is dead." --L. Ron Hubbard

I always had a difficulty in thinking that when I died, that was it. I also couldn't think that I would just go up on a cloud and play a harp for eternity. The closest answer I have come to which has really made sense to me is a quote from L. Ron Hubbard:

"Life itself does not die. Only the physical organism dies. Not even a personality, apparently, dies. Death then, in truth, is a limited concept of the death on the physical part of the organism. Life and the personality, apparently, go on. The physical part of the organism ceases to function. And that is death."

Scientology has since helped me discover myself as a spiritual being. What's interesting is that Scientology hasn't invalidated my own personal beliefs. It has only expanded them.

The most alive, creative and successful people I have met have fulfilled this quote from L. Ron Hubbard:

"An individual is as alive as he has ideas. He's as aware as he has ideas." - L. Ron Hubbard

Mr. David Miscavige gave a presentation at Celebrity Centre which has been made into a DVD called This is Scientology which is an excellent overview of the goals, purposes and activities of the Scientology religion.

Quote for the day:
"Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free--he is his own trap. When his own deeds cannot be disclosed, then he is a prisoner; he must withhold himself from his fellows and he is a slave to his own conscience." -- L. Ron Hubbard

Whenever I have felt down, I remember this quote by L. Ron Hubbard:

"Force yourself to smile and you'll soon stop frowning.
"Force yourself to laugh and you'll soon find something to laugh about.
"Wax enthusiastic and you'll very soon feel so.
"A being causes his own feelings.
"The greatest joy there is in life is creating.
"Splurge on it."

On Wisdom

As I have grown older I have come to agree with L. Ron Hubbard about knowledge:

"Beginning to know that one doesn't know is not a lesson in humbleness but one in wisdom."

As a result, I have opened so many paths to greater understanding about myself and others and in life.

My Advice to my Son

So often I tell my son that it is the simple things in life, the little things, that really make the difference. And when I happened to to read this quote by L. Ron Hubbard I felt I was on the right track:

"People are always attempting to do more complicated things and consider this good. This isn't. What people are doing, actually, is losing their ability to do simple things."


This is a cool quote I just found:

"A man is as well off as his goals and dreams are intact." - L. Ron Hubbard


Quote for the day: " If a man can dream, if a man can have goals, he can be happy and he can be alive. If he has no goals he doesn't even have a future." - L. Ron Hubbard


I recognized when I saw many homeless people in Los Angeles, that the reason they are where they are at is because they lost their future somewhere. The simple solution would be just to get them to create goals (in a gradient) that they could achieve.

On Prejudice

"Prejudice: A fixed unqualified opinion, usually based on unhappy experience, substituting itself for reason." -L. Ron Hubbard


When I read this quote I really realized all the times I had either personally been prejudiced or experienced prejudice from another - that this was actually the case with anyone. It gave me a reference point for understanding.

Quote for the day:

"The least free person is the person who cannot reveal his own acts and who protests the revelation of the improper acts of others."

L.Ron Hubbard


So many times I have found people who point a finger at others, protesting what wrongs that person has done. One thing to remember is that when a person points one finger at another, if you look at his hand, he has three fingers pointing back at himself. The point is that he is trying to make others look somewhere else so as to miss the fact that he has done something that he does not want others to know about. So it's therefore easier to make a big fuss and draw attention to others.

A quote from L. Ron Hubbard:

"Things do not run right because one is holy or good. Things run right because one makes them run right."


So many times in the past I always believed that somehow some greater force was operating in my life and if I just prayed enough, and was good enough, things would turn out. What I realized is that every time I did that those situations in my life were not resolving. At one point in my life I realized that I had to DO something about those situations and only then would they solve. Since that point in my life, things have a way of resolving, just because I am willing to DO something about it.

That point where things changed was when I started studying Scientology, The Fundamentals of Thought. Life has not been the same since.

L. Ron Hubbard Advocated Silent Birth in Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health

There's a good story today from AP that's been picked up far and wide, about Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' planned silent birth.

But to really understand the significance of silent birth people should read Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health. This was the book L. Ron Hubbard wrote to make Dianetics techniques broadly available, but it also is a full description of the reactive mind, and why Scientologists always try to maintain silence around an ill or injured and unconscious or partially unconscious person.

This coming weekend, Scientologists around the world will be participating in a Book-a-thon to make Dianetics books available to people in their communities.

I highly recommend this book to anyone. It is brilliant and extremely helpful.

Scientology churches also have Dianetics workshops. For more information contact a Scientology church or mission and ask them when their next workshop is being held.
