Scientology's System of Ethics

You have heard about Ethics or at least heard the term. There is the Ethics Committee in congress, and businesses have Ethics Officers. What is Ethics and what is the Scientology system of ethics? That information you a read below.

The Scientology system of ethics is based wholly on reason.

L. Ron Hubbard has defined ethics as “reason and the contemplation of optimum survival.” He has also pointed out: “Dishonest conduct is non survival. Anything is unreasonable or evil which brings about the destruction of individuals, groups, or inhibits the future of the race.”
Ethics may be defined as the actions an individual takes on himself to ensure his continued survival across the dynamics. It is a personal thing. When one is ethical, it is something he does himself by his own choice.

The Scientology ethics system includes a body of technology called conditions formulas. L. Ron Hubbard discovered that there are various states of existence and that there are exact formulas connected with these states. A person can determine what condition any area of his life is in and apply a formula to immediately improve this condition. While very simple, such actions are quite powerful and have enabled millions of individuals to improve their lives in ways never thought possible.

Another part of Scientology’s ethics system is what is known as Confessionals. Man has long postulated a means by which he could put himself on the right path. As long ago as 500 B.C., religions recognized that confession frees a person spiritually from the burden of sin. In Scientology, it has been found that a Confessional (a type of auditing) assists the person who has transgressed against his own and his group’s moral code to unburden himself and again feel good about himself and be a contributing member of the group.

As L. Ron Hubbard has written: “No man who is not himself honest can be free — he is his own trap. When his own deeds cannot be disclosed, then he is a prisoner; he must withhold himself from his fellows and is a slave to his own conscience.”

These are just two of the tools from the wealth of ethics technology that exists in Scientology. Complete information on this subject is contained in Introduction to Scientology Ethics by L. Ron Hubbard. Click here to buy the book.
