One of the things I love about Scientology auditing and training is that it rehabilitates a person’s own judgement, his own ability to decide and work out what he/she should do, or not do. Not that you can see that in the current Corporate Church of Scientology, as these days they specialize in control and enforcing people to believe and listen to what is preached – taking justice and using expulsion and disconnection with those who refuse to comply.
But in my own life, watching the development of my own children – -gaining their certainty and their own judgement – as well as working as an auditor, I am seeing how the basic of a communication cycle, the application of simple processes, and using basic standard auditing tools, allows a person to be able to decide for himself/herself, and to gain a certainty on their own judgement .
Here is what LRH says on this subject – and it rings true for me.
“Naturally, all codes have something to do with the regulation and handling of force and it’s direction and that sort of thing. Well, that depends on judgement. And the exact amount of force to use is the exact amount of force that will accomplish the exact effect that you consider should be accomplished. And the only places where you’ve considered your judgement very bad is when you’ve applied too much or too little, and you didn’t do the job. And you might say, judgement then is valid as far as you have been able to follow axiom ten. See, that’s what judgement is, basically, to you. See, it’s production of an effect. Well, the production of the correct effect desired.
“In other words the expression of an intention. The expression of an intention is what that is. You wanted to make a certain effect. Well, believe it or not, not all effects are bad. And that simply consisted of expressing an intention. Well, that intention required that you make a certain postulate, and not too much and not too little, you see. Probably futile [utilize?] force, not too much, not too little force, you see. Probably what you utilized altered or changed some mass, but not too much and not too little. And if you came right there in the group and produced that exact effect then you had confidence in being able to follow out axiom ten. See, axiom ten, the production of an effect. You had confidence that you could produce an effect. And I’ll show you the exact way to reach judgement.
“The exact way to reach judgement is to just rehabilitate confidence of the production of a proper effect, that’s all. Because one of the fundamental laws that is above all other laws is axiom ten. It’s just a law like everything else, you know. You say, “What’s this game all about in this universe?” Well, the game in this universe is the production of an effect. Well, the production of the intended effect would be an obedience to that law. See? You intend an effect and you produce it, and that obeys it. Got the idea? So if you’re going to have that law at all, why, the production of an effect would be the production of the intended effect, not some other effect. And you will become free to the degree that you have confidence in producing the effect you intended to produce. Right? So therefore in Dianetics when you intended, and Scientology, when you intended to produce a certain effect on the pc and you didn’t produce it, your judgement worsened. Right? But when you intended to produce a certain effect and produced it, you figured you were a pretty good auditor. Right?
“Alright. Therefore I invite you to follow through any such line as this with caution and simply walk yourself up scale to a number of wins.”
