The power of Scientology comes from the ideas of LRH and the fact that those ideas produce results.
The whole thrust of Keeping Scientology Working is to keep getting results, and to thus keep making improvements in people and organizations (big and small).
The Chairman of the Board, David Miscavige cannot achieve the destruction of our religion without help of his supporters. He relies on their lack of understanding of the LRH way of doing things. He relies on the fact that he can revise bulletins and policy in the name of LRH, and the majority of Scientologists will simply take the revision and apply it, without questioning it in any way.
We know how hard it is to get study time or training and auditing in the corporate church, so many of the staff carry out COB’s directions as they don’t know enough about the real subject to even see the outpoints.
There is an ongoing hidden data line with people generally believing that COB is a Class XII auditor, OT 8 (or above) and FEBC – so anything he says goes. If COB says a book was wrong (and has been now fixed) – everyone reads the new book and complies with orders to destroy the old. If COB says they are doing it wrong, and must do it a different way, they use the new method, and no one questions or looks for themselves against the LRH references.
People follow orders from “Command” yet never ask for an LRH reference, and assume that the order must be on-Source, when the majority of the time it is not.
How could Scientologists practice disconnection after the practice was cancelled in a bulletin and in Ron’s Journal 68?
Simple – most Scientologists don’t know it was cancelled, as the COB revised bulletin in their packs says that disconnection is alive and well – and Ron’s Journal 68 was 45 years ago, so the majority of public have never read it, or it was forgotten a long time ago.
Miscavige repeats the LRH aims of Scientology in his keynote addresses: “A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper, and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights.” but a current look at the Corporate Church shows wide divergence from those aims.
Perhaps we should handle this situation with good old Scientology?
It is, after all, the subject that can correct itself!
The first step is to get ourselves trained and processed by Scientology groups, outside of Corporate Scientology. Sure they are promoted by the Corporate Church as ‘squirrel’ but the truth is that a large number are headed by well-trained people dedicated to the purity of the tech.
All LRH tech is available and you will find the subject works much better without the suppression or pressure of the Corporate Church.
Opposing the Corporate people only runs into the service facsimile, so the right answer is to use the reverse. With good TR0 ask how their ongoing practices are part of LRH’s standard Scientology? If your intent is to seek understanding, they will explain away, and you will create an as-isness. Even if viewed partially its intensity at least will diminish (see Axiom 30).
Staff members are well-intentioned people. They are doing the best with what they know and what they have been told. The problem is that they are operating of false information, and they are convinced what they are doing is on-Source. But if it is, then why are orgs empty? Why do we have tech failures? And where are the auditors and the Clears and OTs being made?
What we can do, is work to put the LRH back into Scientology.
Look up the unaltered LRH reference yourself – and get it applied.
The power of the technology has not diminished, it is simply muffled under all the Corporate Scientology alter-is, false data and verbal hatting.
The only way out is to Keep LRH’s Scientology Working – not the altered corporate version.
