New Scientology BasicsJuly 27, 2007
While usually I have tried to blog on a daily basis, I’ve recently been too tied up with a number of things to be able to talk about the one thing I’ve been dying to blog about for weeks — the release of the new Scientology Basics.
Released by Mr. David Miscavige (the Chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Center, holder of the Scientology and Dianetics trademarks) at the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, these materials represent an immense project to restore all of L. Ron Hubbard‘s materials on Scientology to exactly how Mr. Hubbard intended them to be.
At the event itself where they were unveiled, Mr. David Miscavige outlined for close to three hours the painstaking work that had gone into individually verifying every single item as being 100% true to what Mr. Hubbard had written, and stripping out ‘editorial corrections’ done back when they were originally transcribed, which has clouded the books themselves and made them more difficult to understand.
Combined with detailed glossaries that have been added, these books now provide a crystal-clear path to being able to understand the Scientology Religion quickly an easily.
I’ve already gotten my set of Scientology Basics, gotten as a set as they are meant to be studied in an exact sequence. I’ve read all the way through them once, and now am reading them along with their accompanying lecture set – as each time Mr. Hubbard wrote one of these Scientology books, he also gave lectures explaining the concepts he put in the book. The result is complete understanding of the Scientology Religion.
If I were someone new trying to find out what Scientology was, I can now say that the single best thing to do is not to ask someone, and definitely not to try to grok it through random pages on the net — but instead to just pick up the first book in Scientology – which is The Problems of Work, and just read it. It literally will only take you a few hours, and then you’ll know what it is Scientology is and what it can do for you.
