The explanation of the Scientology symbol, the S and double triangle, should be more generally known.
And it should be very well known to executives.
There are two triangles, over which the S is imposed.
The S simply stands for Scientology which is derived from “SCIO” (knowing in the fullest sense).
The lower triangle is the A‑R‑C triangle – its points being Affinity, Reality and Communication. These are the three elements which combined give Understanding.
The upper triangle is particularly applicative to an executive but applies to all Scientologists. It has not been widely known.
It is the K‑R‑C triangle. The points are K for Knowledge, R for Responsibility and C for Control.
It is difficult to be responsible for something or control something unless you have Knowledge of it.
It is folly to try to control something or even know something without Responsibility.
It is hard to fully know something or be responsible for something over which you have no Control, otherwise the result can be an overwhelm.
A being can of course run away from life (blow) and go sit on the backside of the moon and do nothing and think nothing. In which case he would need to know nothing, be responsible for nothing and control nothing. He would also be unhappy and he definitely would be dead so far as himself and all else was concerned. But, as you can’t kill a thetan, the state is impossible to maintain and the road back can be gruesome.
The route up from death or apathy or inaction is to Know something about it, take some Responsibility for the state one is in and the scene, and Control oneself to a point where some control is put into the scene to make it go right. Then Know why it went wrong, take Responsibility for it, and Control it enough to make it go more toward an ideal scene.
Little by little one can make anything go right by
Increasing Knowledge on all dynamics
Increasing Responsibility on all dynamics
Increasing Control on all dynamics.
If one sorts out any situation one finds oneself in on this basis, he will generally succeed.
Field Marshal Montgomery was supposed to have said that leadership was composed of “knowledge, will power, initiative and courage.” These are assumed qualities in a man. This was good advice but offered no road out or no avenue of increase in capability.
The KRC triangle acts like the ARC triangle. When one corner is increased the other two also rise.
Most thetans have a dreadfully bad opinion of their capabilities compared to what they actually are. Hardly any thetan believes himself capable of what he is really capable of accomplishing.
By inching up each corner of the KRC triangle bit by bit, ignoring the losses and making the wins firm, a being at length discovers his power and command of life.
The second triangle of the symbol of Scientology is well worth knowing.
It interacts best when used with high ARC. Thus the triangles interlock.
It is for use as well as all of Scientology.
