What Scientology is doing

This quote has been around on the Internet for a while but we were reminded of it when it was sent to us by one of our readers. It is very apt with what we are all now attempting so we are publishing it here along with the recording so you can hear LRH saying it.

It comes from a lecture entitled “What Scientology is Doing”. It’s the 15th lecture of the Anatomy of the Spirit of Man Congress. This quote specifically is on tracks 3&4. Lecture was given on the 6th of June 1955.

“We could, at this time, put together an organization or a group in Scientology sufficiently strong, sufficiently powerful to run over everything it came to. This would be a fascinating thing to do. Be a game in itself. And then someday, me gone, other guys gone, all of a sudden there sits this thing, this organization. And somebody has to rise up and say, ‘Auditors of the world, unite. Overthrow this monster!’ And everybody would see it go down very plainly. See, down it’d go. Then they’d say, “Fine. Now we are free.” And they would get another handful of letters canceling their certificates.

I tried to look far enough in the future to forecast and predict what might be, so as not to do too many things wrong. You must allow me some percentage. And as I look into the future I see that we are handling here material of a potential control and command over mankind which must not be permitted at any time to become the monopoly or the tools of the few to the danger and disaster of the many. And maybe in this I am simply being overly proud, conceited or optimistic. But I would never for a moment step back from a role of being conceited just to be approved of. Or just to be wrong in a prediction.

And I believe that prediction is right. And I believe that the freedom of the materials which we know and understand is guaranteed only by a lightness of organization, a maximum of people, good training and good, reliable, sound relay of information. And if we can do these things we will win. But if we can’t do these things, sooner or later the information which we hold will become the property of an untrustworthy few. This I am sure, because it has always happened this way. But that’s no reason it has to keep on happening this way. I am not of an inevitable frame of mind. 

I have no illusions about either the unimportance of Scientology or its importance. You see, it’d be very, very easy to get a swollen idea either way. It’d be a very simple thing, you know, to take a look at it and then take an opinion of it, independent of its actuality.

Scientology, well understood, is a very powerful thing. Well used it can do a great deal for the social order and for the individual. Poorly relayed, poorly communicated, monopolized or used exclusively for gain, it could be a very destructive thing.”

  1. The unimportance and the importance and a swollen idea either way, from what I have seen the crew that has taken the resposibility to handle the presant situation well use there magic to see the swollen idea either way, com, actions. And push threw to a done, please!!

    Plain easy simple truth is what’s is needed , zero sugar coat.

    Any OT crew got nipping as a added Skill , have a thought you may want to ………

  2. A great quote. And it will work out as long as standard tech is applied in the field. That is the key: standard auditors, standard execs applying standard LRH outside the confines of the CoS.

  3. The outside in standard, would consume the inside out standard,

    Then there will come standard in and out ,

    A true new era for Man

  4. The alteration of the truth … total truth …. being itself the actual works of L. Ron Hubbard, for the purposes of: safeguarding a position, personal power,
    diverting populations from the bridge and the state of OT,
    and many more, are all based in terror, the terror that is found in the mind of the truly suppressive being who is still sitting within the state of mind where enemies are perceived on all sides. Being reasonable about the diversions and alterations leads to the reverse of the bridge – enslavement.

  5. One is reminded of the quote:
    St Luke

    Go your ways: behold, I send you forth
    as lambs among wolves.
    Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes:
    and salute no man by the way.
    And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say,
    Peace be to this house.
    And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it :
    if not, it shall turn to you again.
    And in the same house remain, eating and drinking
    such things as they give :
    for the labourer is worthy of his hire.
    Go not from house to house.
    And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you,
    eat such things as they set before you:
    And heal the sick, that are therein, and say unto them
    The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

    Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see :
    For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to
    see those things which ye see,
    and have not seen them ;
    and to hear those things which ye hear,
    and have not heard them.

    ST LUKE 10 : 3 – 9 , 23 – 24.

  6. The point of the quote from St Luke is simply that it shows clearly the view and spirit that embodies the technology of L.Ron Hubbard as he put it together and in his actions to help people come to see the nature of themselves and their potentials and capabilities. The article above speaks truth.
