In the 50’s, Dianetics came at only the cost of the book and the investment of your time to co-audit.
In the 60’s and 70’s, moving up the Bridge came at a cost, however as a co-audit, you could achieve Clear on a decent budget — becoming an auditor and a Clear in the process.
In the 80’s prices started to rise, and they have continued to escalate to a point where the only persons that can access Scientology technology are the elite who can come up with hundreds of thousands of dollars.
To achieve the state of Clear is now well over $50,000 – and this is with no real auditor training to speak of.
How can a Clear stay Clear if they are not fully competent in conquering and handling the reactive mind?
Without knowing how the mind works, they can run into circumstances in time, that cause them to drop back to effect. And what about the reactive minds of others?
An OT is cause over their dynamics, and how can someone achieve this if they cannot deal with the aberrations and bank of others (both individual and groups)?
And how do we raise the tone of individuals, communities, regions and more, if the cost of auditing is so prohibitive as to prevent any auditing from occurring?
The vast majority of Scientologists who have received auditing in the last 15 – 20 years have been audited as professional preclears. This has been pushed heavily by the C of S, despite it not being what LRH stressed as important. The result is that most people who have gotten onto the OT levels over the same time period have only been Solo auditors, never having audited another.
Scientology is for doing. Scientology is for applying. Not just to receive — but to apply and help others.
” Co-audits are for use. They spark immediate interest. They quickly bring people up to doingness. There is no better exchange for the auditing one gets than to deliver it to another and that in itself produces gain. They are the fastest, most satisfying method of getting lots of auditing delivered, of making lots of Releases and providing actual auditing experience.
“If you want to turn your org scene into one of a bustling beehive of activity, get your co-audits established and running. It is within the means of any org to do so.” HCOB 20 MAY 1980RA CO-AUDIT DEFINED
Find someone near you who is at the same case level as you — whether a preclear, Clear or OT. Checksheets exist in the field — along with LRH materials. C/Ses exist. Supervisors exist.
It doesn’t cost the earth. In fact, the cost can be so minimal it will shock you.
What is important is to learn how to use a meter — and maybe we can set up some locations over the coming year where people can go to do their meter drills and become competent and knowing what a read is and how to handle one? A couple of sups and a word clearer could get a number of people through their training rapidly. If we had some workshops scheduled well in advance in the US, in England, in Canada, in Australia, in France, etc. then people could work out how to attend and have a co-audit twin and meter to do the drills with.
With a C/S, regular worksheets and even video sessions, a co-audit team can do the Bridge. They can help themselves, help another, and have a superb time in the process.
There are way too many people out there who have not moved on The Bridge for way too long. There are also way to many people who never learned to audit, or have been out of the chair for way too long.
Let’s bring back the co-audit!
