Use this to find information that you need on practically any subject, the Scientology News website has thousands of pages that talk about almost every topic about Scientology.
“Truth is actually a relative quantity. It could be said to be the most reasonable existing data about any body of facts.” [emphasis added] —L. Ron Hubbard, page 155 of Science of Survival.
Some philosophies pride themselves in saying that one cannot really ever know truth or that truth is very difficult to know. In Scientology we believe that one can know truth. When, as a child, your mom gave you a big hug and told you that she loved you—that was truth. It is fact, it is real and observable.
However, if one day she was angry with you because you broke a vase of hers and she told you that she hated you or that she didn’t love you. This would not really be “truth” because in that moment she is only speaking out of anger and it doesn’t represent her real feelings toward you. Truth is the most reasonable existing information and in moments of anger people commonly say untruthful things because they are not using reason.
Places where you find a lot of truth are in non-profit organizations. Individuals in these kinds of groups are driven by passion and dedication and have a strong sense of reason. A good example of this is with Youth for Human Rights International. If you were ever to speak with Dr. Mary Shuttleworth the founder and president of this organization she could tell you how education can and does change communities—she has seen it with her very eyes. If you were to talk with her about slavery, she would tell you about the worldwide problem of enslavement and how it can be changed with education. This would be the truth of the matter because she is giving the best information available on the subject.
If you were instead to ask an American high school student, after he was taught all about Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, “Does slavery still exist?” the child would tell you “No, slavery ended in 1863.” This is a false statement. It is not true. Even though the child would not be “lying” because he does believe what he is saying to be true, it is not the most reasonable existing data on the subject. You could ask the over 13 million enslaved in India today if slavery ended in 1863.
One can know truth. A smart man is always looking for and learning truths.
Scientology is open to everyone. There are chances that you may have heard that the Church is exclusive or only caters to certain people, but this is patently false. Every Church of Scientology invites new people to come in and see the Church and its facilities or partake in service. New Ideal Churches of Scientology even have very large Public Information Displays that show over 500 videos answering virtually any question a new visitor may have about Scientology.
Some of the misconception that the Church is a closed group stems from slanderous statements that are intended to sway people away from Scientology because of the Church’s stance against psychotropic drugs and psychiatric abuses. Read a full article about the relationship of Scientology and Psychiatry by About.com’s Catherine Beyer here: http://about.com…beliefs…scien_psych.htm. Vested interests want the common citizen to believe that they are not allowed in the Scientology religion or that it is mysterious because of the testimonies of hundreds of thousands of Scientologists that feel happier because of Scientology. Many Scientologists who previously were on psychotropics or street drugs had no difficulty at all changing their habits. This is a scary fact if your main sources of income come from psychotropics.
Despite all of that, it is true that all are welcome to Scientology Churches.

Imagine science and religion connecting.
Imagine technology and spirituality combining.
Now imagine that everything you ever imagined is possible.
Scientology there are higher states of existence.
Peace on Earth is an idea that has been talked about since time immemorial. It has never been achieved and many say that there will never be peace on Earth. But I challenge this idea.
If we can bring peace into one family, we can bring peace to every family and then we will have peace. In Scientology, we have the means of bringing peace to an individual with Scientology Processing and he can bring peace to his family. I myself have changed and brought peace into my life where before there was sadness and turmoil. I brought this tranquility into the life of others in my family. If this can be done on an individual basis, then it can be done on a more broad basis as well.
But the building block of it all is trust. We must learn to trust each other, but we must first become trustworthy ourselves.
How can a person become trustworthy? Well it is hard to say, but I was able to start by the Scientology course “Honesty and Integrity”. Click on that link or play the video below to see the introduction to the course and follow the link in the description for free enrollment in the course.
I hope that this can help you bring peace to yourself.
You do not have to be a rocket scientist to understand the mind. But you do have to know that the mind can be understood. If you start trying to find out about the mind assuming that you will never really understand it, you will probably won’t.
All you need to do is observe and learn from the things that you observe. That is how L. Ron Hubbard found out so many things about people. However, you do not need to start all over again from scratch and do all the research on the mind in order to know. All of Mr. Hubbard’s initial discoveries are discussed in detail in the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.
There are two ways of learning things. 1) Learning from direct experience and 2) Learning from the experience of others. By reading what L. Ron Hubbard wrote about the mind you begin with the 2nd method but are then able to look into your own life and see for yourself using the 1st method of learning.
For example, in the book Dianetics you can find out about how the mind begins to get into problems when it stops being able to differentiate and begins to “identify” which means it thinks of different things as the same thing. This is called A=A=A thinking. For example, a person can identify water with terrible fear and loss. That person will never enjoy a cruise or may even have trouble saving a child that has fallen into a pool.
However, Dianetics offers a therapy called auditing in which you can find the moments in your past (called engrams) when the mind began to identify and then relieve those incidents, leaving a person again able to enjoy water (or whatever it may be) again. This is merely one example but one that is real and has happened. Only when this kind of thing happens to you, you will learn about the mind using method #1 (direct experience).
However, anyone can read about the therapeutic effects of auditing and then see how techniques can benefit them. L. Ron Hubbard wrote his discoveries down so he could share it with anyone who would wish to know.
