Scientology Philosophy in "A New Slant on Life"

"Who are you anyway? Where do you come from? What will happen to you? Are you a product of the mud as you have been told, to exist for a few years and then wither away and fertilize the earth from which they said you came? Or are you something better, something finer?"

That is the beginning of the book Scientology: A New Slant on Life. It's a great read and every chapter (most of them no more than a page of two long) contains something you can take and use. I doubt there's a person alive today who has everything in their life together. People have conflicts, upsets, disappointments, they fail, they lose, they make mistakes. Aren't we all looking for a way to fix these things and do better by ourselves and each other? I like to think so. and that 's what this book contains—a way to accomplish those aims.

I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.— ScientologyFounder, L. Ron Hubbard
