L. Ron Hubbard believed in the basic goodness of all people. Here is one of his thoughts on this:

"The soul is life, is the spirit, is the thinkingness, is the awareness or any such term which communicates to you the meaning of life and vitality."

This extended to men of all color, race and creed. While in South Africa in the 1960s, Mr. Hubbard spoke out for human rights, and not just for the white man. His work in South Africa has been honored at the opening of the Church of Scientology of Johannesburg, in a speech by Mr. David Miscavige.

While living Johannesburg, L. Ron Hubbard sat for a bust that was then copied and can been seen in Churches of Scientology around the world.

Democracy allows each man and woman to chose who should lead their city, state or country. To chose intelligently and responsibly one should know the qualities to look for in a leader. Here is one of the things I look for:

"In all great leaders there is a purpose and intensity which is unmistakable. Plus there is a certain amount of courage required in a leader." --L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard's book - Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health - continues as a perennial best-seller, and from the looks of the latest campaign this is just going get a huge boost this year!

This NASCAR car is the key element in a promotional campaign just launched at the American Book Expo in Washington DC.

Unveiled on May 19th at the Book Expo America (BEA) in Washington, D.C., is the new "Ignite Your Potential" Dianetics Racing Team, headed by Kenton Gray, founder of Freedom Motorsports Group, Inc., and a top performing Southern California racecar driver.

According to a press release on the Scientology Newsroom:

"Gray has enjoyed success in using Dianetics in his career and personal life since first reading the book in 1996. "I'm proud and excited to now have the Dianetics Racing Team sponsoring my car," he said.

"Gray's edge is his concentration, which he says has greatly improved by the use of Dianetics techniques in gaining confidence and certainty behind the wheel. 'It's markedly improved my focus and my consistency," he said. "Through Dianetics I've handled stress and increased my performance and ability to compete—both on the track and in life.'"

What is wisdom?

"Wisdom is not a fixed idea. It is knowing how to use your wits." --L. Ron Hubbard

Why not be a dabbler in life?

"If you have the idea about anything you do that you just dabble in it, you will wind up with a dabble life. There'll be no satisfaction in it because there will be no real production you can be proud of." --L. Ron Hubbard

If you feel exhausted, here's why:

"It is only when something makes man unwilling, stops him too often and kills his interest in what he is doing that he becomes exhausted." -- L. Ron Hubbard

Here's how you can achieve your own power:

"You are an immortal soul. Through lies, treachery, deceit and pretense you can destroy yourself. By seeking truth and living a life of helping others, by being honest and decent you will be strong and achieve your power and immortality." --L. Ron Hubbard

How do you achieve happiness? Here's what L. Ron Hubbard wrote:

"Man is not happy unless he is honest. White black, red or brown, this is true of all times and all races."

One of the most important aspects of the work L. Ron Hubbard did is that with the application of Scientology technology people become more competent, brighter and more responsible.

Even just reading a book and using what you have learned in that book in your life can have the effect of improving your ability to cope and smooth out situations in your life.

This has ramifications on a societal level as well. As Mr. Hubbard wrote:

"You can't have a civilization without able citizens. It is impossible to have a working democracy without its ranks including only intelligent and capable individuals."
The Scientology religion has certain basic principles. One of them is that you don't have a spirit, rather you are a spirit.

"The individual himself is a spirit controlling a body via a mind." --L. Ron Hubbard

In his presentation at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International known now as This is Scientology Mr. David Miscavige described this Scientology principle as follows:

"Contained in the body of Dianetics and Scientology are answers to those age-old questions — Who am I? What’s the purpose of all this? And, What happens when I die?

"The direct answers are: You are a spiritual being, distinct and separate from a body. You have lived lifetime after lifetime and will live again. You are seeking to survive for yourself, your family, group, mankind, the physical universe, and to survive as a spirit. And only when you have fully achieved that level of enlightenment can you truly understand the Creator."

A DVD of this speech by David Miscavige is available through the Bridge Publications web site or at any Scientology church of mission.

Here's another quote from L. Ron Hubbard:

"A family is a group with the common goal of group survival and achievement."

David Miscavige made a point in his speech This is Scientology that relates to this quote:
" Today we live in a world increasingly obsessed with science. Yes — we can send man to the Moon, explore the surface of Mars, and even survey the galaxy with NASA probes. With advanced computer technology, and satellites circling the globe, we can communicate to anyone, anywhere on Earth, and in an instant.

"Yet with all of that — everything science has brought us — there is a void. In fact, it’s a chasm. And at the bottom of that chasm are the humanities. So, it shouldn’t surprise any of us that with all the high technology of this 21st century, science can’t yet prevent war.

"What about the terror alerts that are a part of everyday existence? The upsets at home that are so common it’s considered part of the daily grind called life? That’s a Code Orange taking place in millions of households every day. Or what about raising a child today? If it’s not the drugs, then it’s the all too common worry that they’ll actually get an education. That’s the real terror alert and it’s at Code Red."

"Knowledge, truth, secrets-- they are the guts and anatomy of life. They must not then be owned. They must not then be hidden or bent. They must be permitted to stand out in the bold sunlight for all to see, for only when they are to be seen are they safe things to have, to hold, to know." --L. Ron Hubbard

"Man's difficulties... are a compound of his cowardices. To have difficulties in life, all it is necessary to do is to start running away from the business of livingness. After that, problems of unsolvable magnitude are assured.

"When individuals are restrained from confronting life, they accrue a vast abiliy to have difficulties with it." -- L. Ron Hubbard

"The ideal state of being ... could be said to be wholly successful in all things.

"This is opposed by being so unsuccessful that one is dead." -- L. Ron Hubbard

Tuesday, May 02, 2006

"It could be said that life was made to be lived, not died out of; and that facts which encourage a high level of living would be, for man, the most truthful facts; and that those that encourage his demise would be the most untruthful facts." --L. Ron Hubbard

How does one better one's life?

"If we take a man and we keep giving him advice and giving him help and pushing him along and so on, we don't necessarily wind up with the resolution of his problems.

"But if, on the other hand, we put him in a position where he had higher intelligence, where his reaction time was better, where he could confront life better, where he could identify the factors of his life more easily, then he's in a position where he can solve his own problems.

"So he looks around, he starts solving his own problems and so he betters his own life."
--L. Ron Hubbard
