Image of a heart being sewn togetherSince the passing of Ron, policy has become something to use in a very altered manner to push staff and public into following something called “Command Intention”.  But, whatever ever happened to following just straight LRH Policy?

Factually, “Command Intention” has taken orgs and their staff from getting the VFP of the organization – “well-taught students and thoroughly audited pcs” per HCOPL 17 JUNE 1970RB ISSUE I, Technical Degrades – to being a collection agency for the IAS and to forward a real estate scheme known as “Ideal Orgs”.  (This scheme is where local org public pays for a building for zero exchange in return -- not even training awards – and this building becomes an asset of the Sea Org.  The org consequently pays monthly rent to the Sea Org for the use of the building.)

Class V orgs have been belittled by Flag as less than qualified to deliver the processing that the Class V orgs were intended to deliver (Grades and NED). Thus enabling Flag to steal the public from the Class V Org’s and further destroy their viability, even though the majority Class V Org staff auditors and delivery personnel are trained at Flag, also at great cost to the Class V orgs!

Image of a yellow jacketThe IAS have become merchants of chaos telling the public all kind of horror stories about the present environment to get them to donate every last penny and acting as if the IAS can do anything about these things, which they can’t.  The IAS uses this tactic to hoard money into investment accounts and releases only small amounts to different church agencies to say it forwards the fight against this dangerous environment.  The end product of this is driving the public Scientologists into debt and hindering their ability to pay for services at their local Class V orgs – services that these very public could use to improve their lives.

Scientology is here still because of standard tech! Not the GAT (Golden Age of Tech) or IAS (International Association of Scientologist). If the IAS is all Scientologists, then why don't its members have any say on where the money goes?  Why are the members not provided with information on what exactly the IAS owns and what it spends its money on?  Have any members seen audited financial reports from the IAS?  I don’t know of any.

Ethics is used on staff and public to coerce them into compliance with these actions and to knock out their stable datum of Ron and replace it with the datum of “Command Intention”.  Ethics summons were sent out wholesale to any OT that was not contributing money to the IAS or Ideal Orgs Campaign.  Why is the intention of “Command” any different from policy?  Shouldn’t “Command’s” intention be the same as Ron’s?

The answer to the above question above is: “Yes.”  These two intentions should be the same.  So why is it happening?  What has been lost?

The answer to this question Ron covered so eloquently in Certainty magazine Vol. 13 No. 3.  The article was called What Is Greatness?. Here he said:

“The hardest task one can have is to continue to love his fellows despite all reasons he should not.

“And the true sign of sanity and greatness is to so continue.

“For those who can achieve this, there is abundant hope.

“For those who cannot, there is only sorrow, hatred and despair. And these are not the things of which greatness or sanity or happiness are made.

"A primary trap is to succumb to invitations to hate.”

 – L. Ron Hubbard –

Somehow instead of truly caring for our fellow man it has become Scientology against the world or the rulers of the world, the bankers and the psychs.  Management feels every Scientologist must give all he has to defend it.

THIS IS FALSE!  We oppose no one. We are supposed to assist everyone through the standard application of ethics, tech and admin to create a better world. Ron specifically asked us not to pay attention to these individuals in RJ 67 where he lays out who is really attacking Scientology at the time and then says further:

“Now, these people are not our major objective; we are not even vaguely dedicated to their destruction. Otherwise we long since would've utilized the information which we have on them. If you were driving a fire engine toward a raging fire and some cur dogs rushed out to bark at your wheels, I don't think you would stop and begin to fight the cur dogs, unless you were quite mad, of course. And that is our position; there is a fire which we are on route to put out, and this is the line we are traveling, and this other is merely a sideshow which has been impeding and has made the work relatively difficult. It is rather hard to drive with a dozen cur dogs getting in underneath your wheels and around and about the fire engine. “  – L. Ron Hubbard

Somehow management feels we should fight the cur dog’s and while we are at it let’s make more enemies to fight. This is not what Scientology is for or about.

We have to care for all our fellow man and keep the way out open to all who wish to travel it.  Not concentrate on those who do not wish to travel it.

If Scientology is attacked the way to defend is covered in HCOB 5 November 67, Critics of Scientology:

“We are slowly and carefully teaching the unholy a lesson. It is as follows: "We are not a law enforcement agency. BUT we will become interested in the crimes of people who seek to stop us. If you oppose Scientology we promptly look up – and will find and expose – your crimes. If you leave us alone we will leave you alone."

“It's very simple. Even a fool can grasp that.

“And don't underrate our ability to carry it out.

“Our business is helping people to lead better lives. We even help those who have committed crimes for we are not here to punish. But those who try to make life hard for us are at once at risk.

“We are only interested in doing our job. And we are only interested in the crimes of those who try to prevent us from doing our work. There is no good reason to oppose Scientology. In our game everybody wins.

“And we have this technical fact – those who oppose us have crimes to hide. It's perhaps merely lucky that this is true. But it is true. And we handle opposition well only when we use it.” – L. Ron Hubbard

He is talking here about people who oppose the spread of Scientology not about people reporting about the crimes of a Scientologist or a staff member but someone who is trying to stop others from receiving Scientology.

But even with those we still can not allow our affinity for our fellow man to be alloyed because of his insanities as Ron lays out in What is Greatness:

“There are those who appoint one their executioners. Sometimes for the sake of safety of others it is necessary to act. But it is not necessary to also hate them.

“To do one’s task without becoming furious at others who seek to prevent one is a mark of greatness – and sanity. And only then can one be happy.

“Seeking to achieve any single desirable quality in life is a noble thing. The one most difficult, and most necessary, to achieve is to love one’s fellows despite all invitations to do otherwise.

“If there is any saintly quality, it is not to forgive. “Forgiveness” accepts the badness of the act. There is no reason to accept it. Further one has to label the act as bad to forgive it. “Forgiveness” is a much lower level action and is rather censorious.

“True greatness merely refuses to change in the face of bad actions against one – and a truly great person loves his fellows because he understands them.” – L. Ron Hubbard

Even when it is ethics tech that needs to be applied, it must still be applied with an intense care for the individual in front of you.  

If you love your fellow man and actually see him as your fellow and understand his or her hopes, desires, pains, etc., you are actually in communication with him or her.  You will never do anything malicious to them.  You will always apply the correct ethics gradient needed for the situation because you care.  You will apply the tech to the best of your ability to the individual per your technical expertise.

It is only in the absence of the type of love Ron is speaking of in What is Greatness that you have what you see now.

The staffs are too caught up in the demand for money to handle the actual production of the org which is to free individuals. The production of the product of the org is how the staff show their care for the public. The public exchange money for service and that exchange is the way the public cares for the staff. Love is symbiotic. If given it must be returned or it is aberrated.

So when a public gives of himself and receives nothing it is aberrated. If a public expects something for nothing it is aberrated. Unaberrated exchange comes with full understanding and care on both sides.

Just look at the levels of exchange Ron wanted staffs to follow. You can only give exchange level 4 when you really care.

Externally and internally Scientology and Scientologist are not here to make wrong, hate, be pissed off or attack another or others without provocation. We are here to be the greatest religion this world has ever experienced and that can only be done with LOVE. That love is shown by the standard application of tech and policy. That tech and policy must be applied with love.

To be a great auditor or administrator you must hold tight to the simple truth of what makes one great.

So if you find yourself hating someone just follow a little advice from Ron:

“The hardest task one can have is to continue to love his fellows despite all reasons he should not.

And the true sign of sanity and greatness is to so continue.” – L. Ron Hubbard, from What Is Greatness?

We as Scientologist unfettered by the bonds of Church management are free to follow the advice of Ron and usher in an age of true tech an administration. Policy no longer needs to be a bad word when applied with love for one’s fellow man.

Thank You, thank You, thank You, thank You, thank You, thank You, thank You......so much !!!!

This post has blown away, nearly all false data of the last 30 years. I didn't even realize that I wasn't any more able to think. For 30 years I was asking myself what the hell is going on? Never found answers or could understand it, what was happening with Scientology?
Now I know and it makes sense again. You expressed all my my thoughts, which I was never able to communicate, as being somehow confused and trying to explain what was going on. Scientology's duty is to care about individuals and free them. That's all it is!
Free beings can work as a group.
Wow! Since reading all those blogs here I'm de-PTSsing at a very fast rate. A side effect is that suddenly my business is booming as never before, without any great efforts, just can't haves and self invalidation not being a necessity anymore to justify the whole nonsense. It's fun!
Thank you to you all my friends. Continue doing such a great job.

Great article.

Very very nice. An excellent entheta-buster!

Thank you for it.

I recall the article, "What is Greatness" these many years ago. I think of it when my boss is being 1.1 or my clients are screaming at me in hatred. I think of it when my fellow driver cuts in front of me in traffic or honks his horn at me. I don't rant and rave about the injustice or betrayal for I am responsible for my condition. I live by the tone scale and understand. Sometimes I am overcome with admiration for my co-workers who manage to get up everyday, get dressed and go to work, year after year without ANY AUDITING!! What you put your attention on, you get. I keep my attention on those who are trying their best to improve their lot in life. The author really did his homework. I am impressed. It was much needed on this web site. I also thank you for taking the time to post it.

It's not often that I experience real communication in these articles. I experienced it with this one. Crisp and very cleanly stated.

I have a feeling that this site would not mind it a bit if you were to copy this one and send it out to your real friends, they might like it as much as you and I did.
# the.believer 2009-10-25 04:03
You are so right. Thanks. That was so rehabiliating to read.
# Mary Jo 2009-10-25 18:57
Wow Jimmy Rebel, what a great article, thank you SO much!!
# Casey 2009-10-27 21:36
this was a very truthful and honest write-up. I thank you. The group today is not what I signed up for. it is interesting to see how everything written in its original form has been turned around to justify the actions that are taken today. It is in the wrong hands that LRH warned about.
# Nicki 2009-10-28 21:24
VERY well written and real!
I've been a Scietntologist for 35 years....
This church is no longer my church.
I've been looking for people who, like me, realized that our group had gotten off track.
It has been difficult to finally admit that I had been involved in an evolving cult...although I am certain thst the current scene is not what LRH intended, yet he did predict it.
Thank you so much for this article.

If you love your fellow man and actually see him as your fellow and understand his or her hopes, desires, pains, etc., you are actually in communication with him or her.

You will apply the tech to the best of your ability to the individual per your technical expertise.
This element is completely missing from the Church. This is why the Church has so many enemies, and continues to get so many more. They do not care about handling concerns or outnesses...all they want to do is crush dissent, using whatever means necessary.

Seems to me that the only hope left is for the outside world and Independent Scientologists to continue putting ethics IN on Miscavige and Management's criminal activities.

Sorry, but you do not have the right to post comments.
