The Future of Scientology
Yes the only way we will make any headway is by training hundreds of thousands of people. Literally hundreds of thousands. The church is a lost cause and having a couple of tiny groups dotted here and there on the landscape is not going to do it. Scientology could quite well disappear over the next 100 years. Having groups who will die off during the next 40 to 50 years is not enough. Something that we will all get a turn at is dropping the body. The point is, will there be replacements? Will groups continue to burn brightly or will they burn out due to lack of foresight and persistence? Just having a few groups comfortably auditing a few people here and there is eventually going to get swallowed up in time. It is going to take a lot more than that.
Most groups take what I call a singular one dimension view. They are going ok and are happy to continue like that.
For Scientology to survive it is going to take organisation, third dynamic activity. LRH introduced all that was needed. If only it could be applied. The deputy system to ensure continuity. Lots of branches of the church. LRH set up the church with the idea in mind it would provide a space for auditors to be made. There were heaps of expansion and div six programs geared to assist this to happen. It could have worked as well. It still is a tremendous resource given a change in leadership. Yes it would take a long time to repair the damage but hey, good intentions and with the purposes in line, stops would be blown out of the water. Ref OT Orgs PL. It works like magic.
And, there are over 6 billion people on this planet. That is a lot of people. How many clears and OTs are there on this planet? Less than .0000001 percent. How many will it take to make a difference? I honestly do not know. How much to raise the tone level of a planet dramatising the forth dynamic engram and stuck in apathy and war?
A saving grace and way out of this is that this universe is a universe of plenty. Survival depends on plenty. Seeds of flora and fauna are created in great abundance just to ensure a few survive. Check out some of the natural documentaries. The universe itself is vast. Humongous. Heaps of space and suns and planets and so forth. Billions. Much more than is needed for all life in this universe. And life is in abundance also. Abundance is the answer. We need not just a few groups like islands in the ocean. We need oceans of groups in a small sea. An abundance of groups as not all will make it but to ensure the survival of the technology we need hundreds if not thousands of groups spreading the technology around. Hundreds of resources of tech spread around. so it is never lost.
I don't know if LRH has gone to another planet to sow more seeds, and then another and then another or not. I often wonder. I would not put it past him to realise that one seed planets may not 'take' and others will be needed. Perhaps Earth was not the first. Who knows? We can enjoy coffee and speculate all day. But he did say this when he was here, that this planet had the answer and the answer was no where else in the universe and that last sentence of KSW rings in my mind.
What if this planet IS the only chance man has? Can we afford not to consider so?
Our future depends on what we do here and now with scientology.
We cannot depend on the church. Or LRH spreading the seed elsewhere. We have to depend on ourselves if we want a future.
It depends on us!
