What Strikes My Fancy

Scientology Beliefs

The term “Scientology beliefs” is actually a misnomer. The reason is explained on the Scientology web site:

“In Scientology no one is asked to accept anything as belief or on faith. That which is true for you is what you have observed to be true. An individual discovers for himself that Scientology works by personally applying its principles and observing or experiencing results.”

This is a brand new concept for a religion, as most religions are about faith, but it becomes very clear when you read Scientology and Dianetics books by L. Ron Hubbard.

His books are pretty remarkable. By reading them I have gained so much insight into myself and questions I’ve had forever: Who am I? What is the purpose of all this? What happens to me when I die? Have I lived before?

It is pretty startling to find that these are not esoteric questions at all, and the answers are available to anyone.

And now all the Scientology and Dianetics books have just been re-released. For the Western Hemisphere they have been published by Bridge Publications. It was announced last week at an international Scientology event, by Mr. David Miscavige.

For the rest of the world, the publisher is New Era Publications International
