The Salvaging of Mankind
Let's face it. Mankind is going down the tubes. Each day we have wars, torture, cruelty, power grabs, greed and suppression of individual rights in the name of 'freedom' etc.
This is what Scientology was meant to handle. Ron Hubbard said,
"My purpose is to bring a barbarism out of the mud it thinks conceived it and to form, here on Earth, a civilization based on human understanding, not violence."
And he was well on the way. The ground work of the philosophy was done. The discoveries about life and the universe were there. The technology of application to raise the tone and awareness levels of individuals was established and an organisation set up to ensure the bridge was followed.
Scientology was on track before the demise of Ron Hubbard and the taking over of the church by the current COB, David Miscavige. From that point the original purpose of Ron was replaced by a different agenda which did not include bringing the world out of the barbarism it thinks conceived it but, instead, an agenda of barbarism, suppression and violence. The very issue Scientology was designed to address.
What if Miscavige had NOT taken over the church, where would it be now? Very likely it would be making vast inroads into the barbarism and many more people would be clear and beyond. The tone level of the planet would be higher and violence would be on the decrease. Scientology would be respected and sought after by people from all walks of life and auditing would be the de rigour thing to do.
As it stands the job has been set back several steps despite the forward strides made by Ron in the development and presentation of Scientology.
Despite the obstacles presented to us and the apparent insurmountable goal of clearing this planet, it is still possible and the power of thetans with a high purpose and determination knows no bounds.
The church, under the current leadership, and I use that term advisedly, is a lost cause. For the church to regain its purpose and standing in the community it is going to have to remove the current despot and put in place those that are determined to revitalise the original purpose of Hubbard. Even then it is going to be a very long haul. So we cannot rely on the church and we have to step up to the plate and work to salvaging this planet. If we WANT to have a future of sanity and peace instead of violence and ignorance we have no choice.
At the end of the Keeping Scientology Working Policy Letter Ron said,
"This is a deadly serious activity. And if we miss getting out of the trap now, we may never again have another chance. Remember, this is our first chance to do so in all the endless trillions of years of the past."
It is going to take guts, determination, keeping the purpose and the goals firmly in mind and focused. Not focusing on the stops or reasons why it cannot be done instead focusing on what we want to see and have.
To do this, we need more groups like APIS stepping in to contribute to the motion. The more groups and people with the agreement to succeed the more likely it will happen. The technology is there. It is a legacy. If we want a civilization of peace and prosperity and sanity the way to achieve it is available. The question is, how much do we want it?
In April 1954, some 60 years ago almost, Ron wrote the following, and it is just as valid today as it was then.
"Auditor competence is the keynote in handling any process. But auditor competence depends upon the auditor being able to receive and give forth a process as it has been found to work. Thus we are apt to find difficulty with certain auditors simply in that they do not deliver the processes which are placed in their view. They take these processes, complicate them, and obeying some communication obsession or compulsion seek to make more of the preclear instead of exteriorizing him, or seek to make nothing of the preclear where the preclear is perfectly entitled to have something.
There is no question about the workability of Scientology in the hands of those trained in the Advanced Clinical Course. Nor is there any question of its workability in the hands of those who audit straightforwardly from the material presented. But there is a question of the workability of Scientology when a case which cannot receive a communication complicates or deranges some process and then delivers it in such a way as to complicate the case of a preclear.
Auditors have many explanations when they do this, and amongst these explanations is the fact that they do not like "to be a follower." These people are under the delusion that I have "invented" Scientology and that "Hubbard's theories and ideas" are Hubbard's. Scientology happens to be a description born out of twenty-five years of investigation of how life and universes are put together. It is a description of a great deal of observation. There have been discoveries, yes, on the order of somebody suddenly seeing a mountain and telling somebody else about it. In addition to this description, a communication system has been originated in order to bring home to the preclear the truth of a situation so that by recognizing it he may alter it. One can only be lost in puzzles. A puzzle fully described ceases to be a puzzle." LRH (Excerpted from PAB No. 25, 30 April 1954, Basic Procedures)
