Seminar This Sunday: The Crisis

“The seminar ‘The Crisis’ was hard hitting, pure truth and straight data on what is happening on planet Earth. Honestly a bit hard to confront but has to be confronted if we are to remain free beings. This seminar is a must see for all Scientologists!”

Discovering the Threat

Over the past few weeks, we have given you some tools that will help you be more at cause over the threatening environment. But what is the threat and who and what are keeping things stirred up to continue the threatening environment?

The more obvious answer may be organizations like a government, rogue countries, etc... but there are less obvious people and groups that have a hand in this.

Read the article called The Merchants of Chaos which is in the booklet Solutions for a Dangerous Environment.

Why Dianetics?

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health has been a best-seller since 1950 and is needed more today than when it was first published. But why this book?

There are good things happening in society and there are also a lot of problems out there. The solutions people use to solve these problems usually result in wars, shootings, "revenge" or just plan stupid things that if it does solve anything, it is short term.

Dianetics tackles the long-term solution to man's social problems. It discovers the source of these problems and what you can do to get rid of it forever.

It's not an accident that this book has survived the test of time. IT WORKS! And that is why you should read the book for yourself.

Want To Be Well-Liked?

Most, of course, would say yes. But do you know that some of the toughest, most dedicated and most successful people and organizations in the world are hated, despised and even attacked by "The People"? Yet, they continue to product great products.

It is safe to say that the above, if they want to be liked, don't desire it. That leads us to point #13 of the code of honor: Don't desire to be like or admired.

Some people go out of their way to have the press, public, etc... want to like them. Others do the opposite to not like them. Both are foolish. If you do good things that does the greatest good for every one involved (heard that one before?), for certain you will have people that won't like you but you will have many more that will like you and admire you to boot because you are doing something that helps them. The thing may be is that they don't have a speaking platform to tell you so and the others do but be assured they are out there.

So here is the the answer to the question Want To Be Well-Liked? Don't desire it!

Ways to Lessen The Threat #4

Here is another way on how to become more at cause over the dangerous environment:

4. Find Something That Isn’t Hostile to You
There are people who feel as if everybody in the environment is hostile to them.
For a person like this, there is another technique that will lessen his fears.
One could ask any of several different questions, depending upon the situation. Examples of these are:
“Find something people say or do around here that isn’t hostile to you.”
“Is there one person in the company who isn’t actively hostile to you?”
“Is there anything said today that wasn’t directly and immediately hostile to you?”
Ask the person one of the above questions (or a similar question with a wording more appropriate to the person’s situation). For example, ask him, “Is there one person in the company who isn’t actively hostile to you?”

Continue this until the person feels better, is happier and has had a realization about himself, the environment or life in general.

In a Just Cause

This next point in the Code of Honor is simple but also complex:
#12. Never fear to hurt another in a just cause.

It's simple when it involves yourself or your immediate family members.
The complexity comes when people take it too far or worse yet, do nothing, when needed, for fear of being ridiculed, etc... . So what would be a just cause?

You have doing something for the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics. Any person or thing that would do something that is not in the greatest good would be a just cause. Keep that in mind when deciding on whether to act or not.

Ways To Lessen The Threat #2

Last week, we gave you one thing you can do to become at cause over your environment. Here is another one, taken from the Scientology Handbook booklet; Solutions For a Dangerous Environment:

2) Don't Read the Newspaper

This part is not mentioned in the booklet but you should include Don't Watch the News on TV also!

"This is very simple, Tell the person "Don't read the Newspaper for two weeks and see if you don't feel better"

If he doesn't read the newspapers for two weeks, of course he will feel better.

Then tell him " Now read the newspaper for a week, and at the end of that week you will find you will feel worse. Then make up your mind whether or not you ought to pay any attention to the newspaper"

Try it as an experiment.

Why Regret Your Past?

If you view the news, a lot of supermarket magazines, the Internet and other media, the main point of an attack on someone is attacking their past. This person did this and that person did that!

Or maybe you haven't done as well as your wished and made decisions that led you astray from that. Ever regretted not doing something?

Possibly your past was something to be questioned, condemned or scorned. Maybe that is your present situation. What can you do about it?

Point #11 of the Code of Honor gives and answer:
"Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today and you make your tomorrow".

Regret is a very low emotional state and does more harm than good. A better solution is to rise up and look forward to facing the challenges of tomorrow. You have the vigor and energy to do it.

Now this code doesn't mean do not have take responsibility for what you have done or are doing if it's bad or not desirable and want to change it. Not taking responsibility is probably what got you in the situation you're in. Just don't stay in that state of regret and look forward to tomorrow.

Ways to Lessen the Threat #1

It's not that things are not dangerous out there but some people have this crazy idea by their actions to make things far more dangerous than they actually are. So are going to go over some solutions or things you can do to lessen and become more at cause over it. One of them was mentioned last week with Take a Walk. Here is another one, taken from the booklet; Solutions For A Dangerous Environment:

1) Find Something That Isn't Being a Threat
" When one gets too upset or confused, one can have him look around his environment and find something that isn't being a threat to him. Carry on doing this until the person is very happy or relieved and has a realization about him the environment or life in general."

Try it!

Your True Self

The 10th point of the Code of Honor is: Your Integrity to yourself is more important than your body. I guess you could look at that physically and spiritually. What is your definition of integrity? And do you judge that more importantly that your or any one's physical looks?
