Tried and tested
"For some years we have had a word "squirreling". It means altering Scientology, off-beat practices. It is a bad thing. I have found a way to explain why. Scientology is a workable system. This does not mean it is the best possible system or a perfect system. Remember and use that definition. Scientology is a workable system."
There is a tendency or inclination to continually try 'something new.' The culture of 'must be new' pervades our lives from advertising and the media primarily and is a cultivated marketing ploy originating from the concept of planned obsolescence (Planned obsolescence, or built-in obsolescence, in industrial design and economics is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so it will become obsolete (that is, unfashionable or no longer functional) after a certain period of time.) thought to have originated in the early 1930s, this has now become a fixed idea. For example, everyone must have a new phone every 1 or 2 years, a new car every 5 years and so forth. Household appliances, computers, communications devises and even cars are built with a shelf life and 'need' to be replaced after a certain length of time. This, interestingly, does not apply to high end products. Cars for example. The cheaper cars seem cheap but will start to breakdown over a few years. To offset this manufacturers instituted a guarantee for a set number of years, usually three or five which basically tells you the 'life' of the car. High end cars, however do not have this built in limited shelf life. The more prestige you go with your car the longer it will last. There are Mercedes being driven around that are still going strong after 20 years due to the build quality and the same applies to other manufactured vehicles. Of course, it could be argued that any car well-kept and looked after will last longer but even then it is inevitable that parts will break down as being 'worn out'
"You are very fortunate people, very very lucky people. You came all the way down the track, lived all those years, did all of those stupid things, and you wind up here with a chance out. That chance is as good as you can audit. It's not a bit better. It is a good thing, if anybody is to be fully cleared or go OT, for them to be trained. If they are going to make it, they will have to be trained well."
The Relationship of Training to OT
This applies to technology and services just as much and this aberration has even invaded the humanities. New technology is being invented to replace 'old' technology not on the basis that it is better but on the basis that it is new. In Scientology the church seems to have a pressing need to offer revamped materials, new techniques and revised technology. This is despite the fact that the original existing technology is tried, tested and proven.
What is needed is not a compulsive need to continually find 'something new' but a buckling down to apply and ensure is applied the existing technology. The issue is that the tech is not being fully applied around the planet. There needs not so much more auditing as more education, more enlightenment more dissemination, disbursement and distribution of the technology fast and wide and opening more people’s eyes and minds. We have the technology. It is tried, tested and true. It is established that it works. The bridge is already built so we do not need to find ways to build a bridge It is a fait accompli.
Let's spread the word. Find ways of promoting the existing technology. "Oh that's boring." I hear some say. No it isn't. The existing technology has proven itself to be workable. i.e. It works! Based on sound principles and tested over and over again it can elevate a person's awareness and abilities to heights never before attained. New technology or revised or 'improved' technology is an added inapplicable. With the existing technology watching a person come to a realisation is heart-warming and an F/N in itself. And there are billions of beings that need to be freed. All are basically good but with added inapplicable aberrations and false data that can be removed. Seeing a person discover something about themselves they never knew before is exciting and uplifting.
But thats not all.
"Man succeeds because he adjusts his environment to him, not by adjusting himself to the environment."
There is a tremendous amount of case gain available from improving others. In the first place it increases the sanity or theta levels in one’s environment. Each Clear made or each being enlightened improves the sanity in society and elevates the tone level of that society. That is case gain on the third dynamic and draws us all closer to a saner society. It is Clearing on the third dynamic.
Secondly there is personal case gain for the individual who actively works towards this saner society by assisting other individuals to improve their lives. It expands their space and improves their flows and increases their ability to be at cause.
There are over 7 billion people on this planet. Imagine how it were if all of them were Clear. Even if only 20 percent were Clear, there would be a dramatic change in the tone level and environment of the planet. Wars would cease to be. Resources would be better utilised and there would be less poverty, crime and cruelty.
Let's do it!
