50 Year Anniversary for a Dream
"Ideas, and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind. Individuals, and not masses, form the culture of the race."
- SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL
"I have a dream this afternoon that my four little children will not come up in the same young days that I came up within, but they will be judged on the basis of the content of their character, not the color of their skin."
Rev Martin Luther King - Aug 28th 1963
50 years ago, almost to the day the Rev Martin Luther Kind made his memorable speech, "I have a dream". This speech resonates with people to such a degree that thousands recently attended mass meeting around the world to commemorate the event.
This resonates also with the independent scientology field in that we have a dream or a goal. The words may vary, even from person to person and the actual dream may vary, but it is inherent in the nature of a being to have goals and purposes and dreams to aspire to.
Whereas Martin Luther King's speech was a message of hope and desire, we are fortunate in that Ron Hubbard provided a path to walk where a being can obtain freedom for the individual from the eons of trials and tribulations, pain and suffering and where one can attain one's dream or at least the capability of attaining one's dream.
"No man is happy without a goal, and no man can be happy without faith in his own ability to reach that goal."
- SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL
One simply has to walk the path, keeping on the straight and narrow. Over 50 years Hubbard developed and re developed the route or path to make it easy for all individuals from any culture, race or creed to follow.
"One of the great truths of Scientology is that increased awareness is the only factor which offers any road out. That is an awfully simple truth, but you'll find out that people don't know that. They think that less awareness is the road out, and that is the road down into the basement."
- "What It Means to Be A Scientologist," THE AUDITOR 36
So walking the road to become more aware is singly one of the most important activites one can engage in.
If one wants to be a free and joyful being. If one has a dream. The road is there. One simply has to walk it.
