HOW DO I LEARN ABOUT SCIENTOLOGY?

“Scientology has been my road out. There is nothing about my life I feel apathetic or unhappy about. Scientology gives you hope and the certainty that you can improve any condition. This, to me, is priceless.” —LR

“Before Scientology, my problems looked gigantic. ’Will I ever be able to make my career work?’ ’How can I possibly make my marriage work?’ Worry, worry, worry. You can worry about something for years, or you can handle it in a few weeks with Scientology training.” —MDR

“The Purification Rundown was amazing! I feel so much brighter and healthier now than I have ever felt in my whole life. While on the Purif I was able to see exactly how Scientology can help me be the person I have always wanted to be - myself.” —CE

“I feel as if there must have been some kind of inhibiting screen or shield around me, one that I didn’t even recognize was there until it was lifted off of me. It is truly amazing how much better I feel on an hourly basis. I sleep better, think more clearly, and read with more understanding. I feel as if my senses were out of whack before and have now been fine-tuned to receive and experience all. My body is physically healthier and my spirit, soul and personality are clearer and sharper....” —BT

“My son died in an accident and in the weeks that followed I was constantly thinking about the moment when my father told me about his death. During all my daily activities I appeared to be functioning properly, but that moment was constantly replaying in my thoughts. I doubt I would have been able to continue to function much longer without it really driving me crazy. After one session of introductory Dianetics auditing, six weeks after his death, that “tape” stopped playing constantly and I was able to proceed with my daily routine and obligations much more easily. I do not believe I would have been okay without this auditing. My life would probably have completely fallen apart.” —SR

Why live with stress when you can get rid of it?

Stress can come in many different forms. How can you hold down a decent job in a shaky economy? What kind of stability can you be guaranteed? How about your family - will your marriage last? Will your kids end up mere statistics, addicted to drugs or victims of senseless violence in school?

The staff at Scientology churches understand that when someone is beset with worries like these, they will find it hard to appreciate the tremendous potential for increased spiritual awareness and freedom that is available through Scientology training and counseling. These pressing problems have to be solved. Fast!

What about anxiety? How does Scientology view that?

Perhaps you have been told that anxiety is an illness - that there is something wrong with you if you feel that way. That is just not true.

There are Scientology services to help you solve the problems that are holding you down, and to help you increase your self-confidence and ability.

You say Scientology techniques work, but how can I be sure?

Really the only way is to find out for yourself.

In an article called Personal Integrity L. Ron Hubbard wrote:

  • “WHAT IS TRUE FOR YOU is what you have observed yourself and when you lose that you have lost everything.
  • What is personal integrity?.
  • Personal integrity is knowing what you know.
  • What you know is what you know.
  • And to have the courage to know and say what you have observed.
  • And that is integrity.
  • And there is no other integrity.”

I hear that Scientologists are drug-free. Is there some Scientology service that helps people handle the effects of drugs?

Yes. It is the Scientology Purification Rundown® procedure.

L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology research led him right into the problem of handling the effects of drugs when he discovered that drugs actually prevent spiritual gain. In an essay on the subject, Mr. Hubbard wrote:

A recent study of Americans found that 40 % of those surveyed complained of intense work-related stress.

“The planet has hit a barrier which prevents any widespread social progress-drugs and other biochemical substances. These can put people into a condition which not only prohibits and destroys physical health but which can prevent any stable advancement in mental or spiritual well-being.”

Many people are surprised to find out the extent they are still affected by past drug and alcohol consumption, and by living in a toxic environment.

What is Scientology® spiritual counseling?

Scientology spiritual counseling is called “auditing”, from the Latin word audire, to listen. A Scientology counselor is called an auditor - one who listens. Your auditor will help you discover things about yourself. These personal discoveries help you free yourself from your limitations, unwanted emotions and past losses and trauma.

What is Scientology® Training?

Because Scientology deals with basic truths about life, when people study Scientology technology, they gain skill in living! Imagine trying to drive a car without knowing anything about one. What would happen if you tried to build a bridge without ever having studied engineering? Well, is life so different? Could it be that the reason so many of us are consumed with problems and difficulties in relationships, at work, within the family, is because we are missing vital information on what life is really all about and how it works?

Scientology training gives you real tools you can use to improve your life, and to really help the people who are most important to you.

But what if I have too much trouble studying to take a Scientology course? How can Scientology training help me?

Mr. Hubbard ran into this very problem when trying to train professional Scientology auditors, and this led him to researching the subject of study itself. He discovered an actual technology of study, and this is taught at Scientology churches.

Why is the Scientology religion called an applied religious philosophy?

As L. Ron Hubbard the founder of Scientology wrote:

    “Scientology is a route, a way, rather than a dissertation or an assertive body of knowledge. Through its drills and studies one may find the truth for oneself. It is the only thing that can show you who you really are. The technology is therefore not expounded as something to believe but something to do. The end result of Scientology studies and drills is a renewed awareness of self as a spiritual and immortal being.”
