” Dishonest people have withholds, and withholds stack up mass and bring about stupidity. They cut the person’s reach and his ability to perceive. They hold in place the masses that imprison and pin the being at the level of Homo sapiens— and a miserable Homo sapiens, at that! Who is such a person really fooling?
Thus, one can bar his own way up the Bridge by dishonesty.
I always feel a bit sad when I see somebody doing himself in this way. It is so pointless.
One sees this in those who, for whatever irrational reason, cling knowingly to withholds and wind up critical, nattery and generating hostility. If one finds himself feeling hounded or persecuted, he should ask himself what his condition is on the first dynamic instead of going around persuading others to do him in.
How precious, after all, are one’s dishonesties, withholds and falsities in the face of the real freedom there is to be gained?
One CAN be honest. He will find it a happier, more comfortable existence when he is.
And more important—he’ll find the route to stable case gain is now open to him.
HONESTY OPENS THE DOOR TO CASE GAIN.
That is the route to sanity. It is the route up the Bridge to OT and real freedom. With honesty, one can make it and make it all the way! “
L. Ron Hubbard
(HCO Bulletin 1 May 1985 “Honesty and Case Gain”)
This is an example of someone “condemned into his own hell” ( LRH quote) by his auditor , who does not understand that there no case gain for people who are audited over withholds:
“The stick of ethics. Lol! Were I be trying to do L’s at Flag I’d have been routed straight away to ethics and O/W write ups, sec checks, and intense pressure for “indulgences” that would have had Martin Luther spinning in his grave. And I would have walked, no run. And I’m not including anything here about being an “SP” FZer”
