Summer Sunday in LA

Hard to believe it’s the (sniff) last Sunday in August.

The stores are full of back-to-school specials and people are racing to the beach for the last weekend before Labor Day, when it will be too crowded.

I remember how I  used to dread going back to school!  Used to do strange things to my stomach, used to feel waves of anxiety.  Just knowing fun was a whole year away!

Wish I’d had study tech then.  It would have made my life so much simpler.

And speaking of study, I’ve been continuing with my study of the Scientology Basic Books and Lectures (released in July by Mr. David Miscavige).  I feel myself growing and changing by the hour.  It is so amazing what L. Ron Hubbard did in writing these books and in the lectures explaining them.  And the quality of these editions of the books is just incredible.

Scientology News: Harlem Church and Scientology Books

The New Church of Scientology of Harlem

I found this presentation of how the new Church of Scientology in Harlem will look at CityLimits.org.

What a great building and what a great idea to have a major Scientology church in Harlem!

David Miscavige actually announced this new church a month ago at an international Scientology event in Clearwater, Florida, so it was “Scientology news“, but I was surprised to see it hit the regular news.

Well, I guess it just goes to show that Scientology is newsworthy!

Personally, I think it’s great that this new church is opening.  Harlem represents so much that is good and bad about our country: good in it’s incredible influence on American culture, bad in its typifying all the bigotry, neglect and treachery of white American culture in the way Black culture, pride and opportunity has been so undermined for centuries).

I think that this new church and the community center they are opening is going to be a turning point for Harlem, and that can’t come too soon from my point of view.

There’s another piece of great news, that has to do not just with Harlem but with Scientology anywhere in the world.

The day before the new Harlem church was announced, Mr. Miscavige made another announcement that is making a huge impact on Scientology all over the world. That was the release of all the basic books by L. Ron Hubbard in 15 languages, and all the early taped lectures he recorded as companion lectures to the books, which provide tremendous background and detail on the research he was doing at the time.

All in all it is a great time for the Scientology religion. I’ve never seen Scientologists more optimistic, more involved in their communities and more gung ho.

These books contain so much truth. I’ve been spending some time every day reading them and I feel completely revitalized. I have read them before (I’m reading the Dianetics book right now) but because they are so basic and they deal with so much truth it’s like you’re waking up more and more as a being. I feel so much more alive!

And the fact that this is all available in 15 languages (plus English) is great news, because anyone, anywhere can get a copy of these books, and start on an extension course and man can you improve your life with that!

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
