Grade 3 Completion

C/S: Pierre

I have just attested to completing Grade III. Of the previous grades, this one has been the fastest to do. It has been relatively calm to do.

If I get upset, it lasts very briefly, or I can go and spot the source of the upset. And I realize that if my reaction does not match the current situation, it is because I would be dramatizing something that was earlier!

That bank reaction is more real to me! I can see it. (In others too!)

Great auditing. Thanks to the one who made it all possible – LRH.”

What is truly important

“One of my great regrets, and I don’t have many, is that I spent too long putting people’s status and reputation ahead of their more important qualities. I learned far too late in life that a long list of letters after someone’s name is no guarantee of compassion, kindness, humour, all the far more relevant stuff.”

There is no power in fraud, trickery and corruption

pierre-ethier-today

It has been many years now that individuals who took advantage of my kindness tried to justify their evil actions spreading malice and slander about me. I had remained calm and silent as it takes a dignified stand to withstand the force of their vindictive attacks. It fired back on my attackers. The means that man takes to kill another’s character becomes suicide of his own. No man in the world ever attempted to wrong another without being injured in return,–someway, somehow, sometime. The only weapon of offence that Nature seems to recognize is the boomerang. Nature keeps her books admirably; she puts down every item, she closes all accounts finally, but she does not always balance them at the end of the month. Revenge is so far beneath me! I am not going to mention names of people whining for years now on various boards and up to the point that their wild rumors are no longer believable, even by the fools who once were their friends and supporters. accompanied by ignorance at a premium, and knowledge at a discount. I am living my life as best I can; so I am not worrying about obstacles that EVIL presents. I have realized that the full glory of individuality in self-control, compassion, kindness and gratitude.

Success through communication.

Dear Pierre,

Just wanted to express my deepest and most sincere gratitude for what you are doing! The results of your help are indescribable. The focus of attention has changed. Limiting thoughts are disappearing each moment more and more. May each moment be embraced with the gentle presence of spiritual fulfillment. Life is so wonderful and I truly enjoy every day of success.

With love,

J.T.

Have you said “THANK YOU” today?

For too long, we’ve taken gratitude for granted.

Yes, “thank you” is an essential, everyday part of family dinners, trips to the store, business deals, and political negotiations. That might be why so many people have dismissed gratitude as simple, obvious, and unworthy of serious attention.

But that’s starting to change. Recently scientists have begun to chart a course of research aimed at understanding gratitude and the circumstances in which it flourishes or diminishes. They’re finding that people who practice gratitude consistently report a host of benefits:

  • Stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure;
  • Higher levels of positive emotions;
  • More joy, optimism, and happiness;
  • Acting with more generosity and compassion;
  • Feeling less lonely and isolated;

“The true psychotic is not always a madhouse. Among these gray walls are more like his victims. The actual psychotic is causing hysteria, apathy, confusion and stress reactions in others. This is the identity of which is the source of psychosis.

In general, it is rather difficult to follow across as being, as it speaks through the wildest generalizations, and appears rather wise unless you listen carefully. Then you discover that the reasons for not providing a lot of sense, but are all directed towards the need to destroy or harass everyone or selected groups or material objects.

(February 2, 1966 “psychotic”)

It has become common practice that a bunch of fraudsters partner together and smear the name of a good man like a Pierre. If you have not realized some truths till now and how this partnership goes in order to scam people, be aware! One FreeZoner , Frank Pate , who was promoted to provide free phone counselling came out to be using this to recruit investors in apparently fraudulent scheme (see below) . Frank Pate also funneled large amounts of sums to Trey Lotz for his auditing services, which apparently did not lead him ( Frank) to an honest way of living.

I have been also threatened if I speak up , so I will merely provide the facts as published in the media of Dallas Morning New. Anther example of parasitism and promoting parasitism in the FreeZone.

 

Jury convicts former Frisco man in federal fraud scheme

A federal jury has convicted a former Frisco man on multiple fraud charges after a five-day trial in Sherman, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Frank E. Pate, 47, of Prescott, Ariz., was found guilty on two counts of wire fraud and one count of mail fraud. He faces up to 20 years in prison on each count. A sentencing date has not been set.

According to prosecutors, seven investors gave Pate more than $2.6 million between 2004 and 2013 for foreign currency trading through two companies, Infinity Investing and Infinity Companies. Bank accounts for both companies were based in Frisco and were controlled by Pate, prosecutors said. But instead of using the money for his clients, Pate spent much of the money on personal expenses, prosecutors said.

Pate, who represented himself at trial, was in custody and not available for comment.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys J. Andrew Williams and Christopher Eason.

Freezone MO Style ( re-published from Geir Isene Blog )

Things have come up involving you, in my sessions. I have not used that to degrade you widely on some blog. Either has my auditor. I do not think it is fair to present such vague innuendo’s about a man’s life without witness’ to back this up. Such as the “clients” (a generality) themselves being willing to vouch for this or at least specific names. Discussing session data on the Internet is already very murky. Aside from whatever “clients” situations you may want to divulge, you have posted widely entheta about Marty. While a guest in my home, you asked me if I would be willing to tell you how much money I had donated to Marty. That seemed to be an issue for you. Then you proceeded to tell me whatever “funding” (were your words), I had been giving to Marty, YOU felt, I should be giving to “The Freezone.” I don’t know WHO you meant by “The Freezone”. I suppose it was to be you? It was an attempt to unmock his income lines. You were the one on the Freezone forum to insist that auditors should never get attacked. Yet, you are before an audience publishing rumors against an auditor, on another man’s platform. What you mean by assessing and evaluating Marty’s place “mentally and spiritually” as being in a “better place” I do not understand. May I ask as to your place mentally and spiritually that evidences you as more enlightened, more aware, more educated and more competent than Marty Rathbun? How your products and accomplishments would elevate you to a position to assess Marty’s “mental and spiritual place” ?
Do explain.

  1. It seems you just cannot help but expose yourself, Catherine Zoltan/”Oracle” (yes- if you’re going to float false innuendos at another by their name, then stand behind your own name, or else do not engage).

    Firstly, your behavior here is emblematic of what I was just talking about. Marty Rathbun does not need others taking his words out of context to create and promote a conflict with him and me, and neither do I. I was merely explaining why I hadn’t the interest to have been reading his blog. Only an opportunist like yourself, with the ever present purpose to stir the pot, would do this. All your nonseqiturs, which Geir referred to, are consistent only in your intent to create in others the idea that “there are enemies to fight”.

    As to the good I do, everyone here is welcome to take in the testimonials on my website, Gateway to Answers. I also have an active Facebook group of my own, Free Scientologist with over 100 members (including Geir, Kim Baker and other subscribers here) who find my activities worth supporting.

    You have always, however awkwardly and transparently, positioned yourself as the “mother guardian-protector of the set-upon victims”, while mostly puzzling people trying to figure out what you’re talking about. Perhaps the most bizarre, over the top example of this was when you got your husband involved, but then since you have demonstrated the amazingly poor taste to once again embarrass yourself by reigniting a public pissing mstch with me here in Geir’s blog, let us allow sunlight to disinfect, and tell the full story behind this:

    (1) Approximately 2-1/2 years ago, you approached me, and made me a financial offer to provide processing for members of your family; you COMPLETELY set the terms yourself, including an advance payment of $10,000 to reserve a month or two in the summer time, all for your arrangement and no other clients during that period; you also INSISTED that the advance payment be non-refundable. (To be clear, I have NEVER insisted on such terms with anyone, not then, not before, and not since, have I EVER even suggested such a thing as a nonrefundable advance payment of any kind).

    (2) You then later did an about-face and accused me of “bait and switch”, of “turning out to be a squirrel”, and withdrew from this plan. (I had not been aware that you had done this same dance with at least two other field auditors, and would go on to do this at least once more with someone else afterward)

    (3) I immediately told you I would not keep your $10,000 because in my mind, while your reserving that time did in fact prevent me from seeking and accepting other bookings, I could not in good conscience take that much money from you when I have never actually provided a single auditing session to any member of your family. I did say that I would return $8,000 out of the $10,000- which you utterly outright refused to accept; quoting you verbatim here: “If you send a check I will tear it up”. So I set the money aside to return at another opportunity.

    (4) You then, on more than one occasion, publicly LIED about this, and pretended that you had asked me for the money back and that I refused. You did everything in your power to use lies to make me look untrustworthy. Again, quoting you verbatim (this you posted on Freezone.org): “Dexter Gelfand is a fucking criminal!”; then, only on private emails, did you admit that you were lying.
    When my wife Marina confronted you over the phone on this, you offered the weak excuse that you felt some things I had posted were directed at you, so then in your mind, that justified spreading such lies about me.

    (5) Then, you retreated to your act as “mother guardian-protector”: I confronted Terril Park, who had appointed me moderator to help him to curb vulgar outbursts such as yours on Freezone.org for immediately taking you off moderation and singing your praises after what you said about me (and failed to disclose that he had been the beneficiary of your financial generosity- you had paid thousand$ of your husband’s money to treat Terrill to expensive L’s auditing); what did you do? You bleated “stop attacking Terril!” in a transparent attempt to disguise the fact that I was confronting Terril for having supported your attack on me, on the very list that he had asked me to help him moderate. There you were again, being the instigator of a conflict, and then opportunistically positioning yourself as “mother protector-guardian”. PS, NOBODY is buying your act, Catherine; minus the people you have swayed with your husband’s cash, I haven’t seen even one supporter.

    (6) “But wait, there’s more!”- You next brought your husband into the act-which is a shame, because when I met him, I found him to be a very nice and friendly being. He asked what had happened, and was upset about my wife Marina having called you about this- (no doubt, you made it sound like Marina “attacked” you-which is WAY outside her wheelhouse). I explained that I also was not happy with my wife interceding in this matter, and preferred to handle it myself- now get this-
    Your husband then took your “mother guardian-protector” bullshit act (with your influence, without a doubt) to amazingly ridiculous proportion- and I do mean AMAZINGLY-

    He then pretended to take my words to mean that I was going to harm my wife- wait, we’re not even there yet- and said, as a Hungarian, he felt a kinship to her because she is of Russian ancestry (never mind the fact that I am also), -wait for it-….and, he ACTUALLY-LITERALLY, MIND YOU- THREATENED TO SEND “A BAND OF GYPSIES” after me! For real!

    Imagine the state of mind it takes to think that this is going to drive a edge between my wife and myself and position you as a “protector”. Beyond the ordinary concepts of insanity by light years.

    Everything you could ever say about me is drenched in self-promoting, self-serving lies of biblical proportion, Oracle.

    I rest my case.

  1. I do not care to dirty up this blog like this. I will put up a separate blog with copies of our emails and correspondence. It’s all in writing. I have copied your essay here to add to it. People can go there if they want to see it all in writing. The last time we game to a disagreement your spouse put matters right. So this time I will refer this to my spouse to take it from here.

  1. YOU are the one who “dirtied up this blog” , quite knowingly and intentionally, mind you, by, without giving YOUR name, introduced into Geir’s discussion topic your distorted version of personal events that occurred between us. If you woiuld like to “put matters right”, then reach out to me personally and privately, and I will be more than happy to work with you to restore the good relations we originally enjoyed 🙂

    One more point I wish to make known here, now that the rest of the story has been presented: Months ago, I did in fact send back to Oracle every penny of her $10,000, which I had kept in reserve for that purpose all along.

Good and Evil

A person may believe in all the churches in the world, may carry in his head all the sacred books ever written, he may baptize himself in all the rivers of the earth-still, if he has no perception of GOOD and can not distinguish it from EVIL, I would class him as a fool .
And a person may have never entered a church or a mosque, nor performed any ceremony, but if one feels the GOOD within oneself and condemns the EVIL that person is a holy person, a saint, you may call what you will

Having good friends is really important to your happiness

Why good friends are so important

A lot of research has been done looking into the benefits of friendship, and the research has found exactly what you might expect. It turns out that the better quality relationships you have; the more likely you are to be happy. Therefore it’s good for your happiness to be a great friend to someone and to have a group of good friends supporting you. But it can be hard to pinpoint exactly what makes a good friend.

best-friends

Signs of a good friend

Friends will come and go in your life, but more important than how long a friendship lasts, is that a good friend will love you for who you are. The way you can tell the sign of a good friend is by looking at the actions they take –big and small – that show they care.

Some common signs of a good friend include

  • someone who will support you no matter what
  • someone you can trust and who won’t judge you
  • someone who won’t put you down or deliberately hurt your feelings
  • someone who is kind and has respect for you
  • someone who will love you because they choose to, not because they feel like they should
  • someone whose company you enjoy
  • showing loyalty
  • being trustworthy and willing to tell you the truth, even when it’s hard
  • someone who can laugh when you do
  • someone who is willing to stick around when things get tough
  • someone who makes you smile
  • someone who is there to listen
  • someone who will cry when you cry.

How to be a good friend

If you want to do all or many of the things listed above for someone you care about, you’re already a good friend. It’s also common though, to not know exactly what to do or say to be there for someone. Some practical things you can do to be there for a friend include:

Listen. Listening is so important not to underestimate, but it can be hard to do. The best way to listen is to try and understand the situation from your friends’ point of view. If you aim to do this, you’ll naturally find yourself beginning to ask the right sort of questions and they will appreciate having someone who really cares about how they feel and what they’re going through. You don’t have to have all the answers, and you shouldn’t assume your friend wants advice – they might just want to talk so that they can work out what they’re going to do themselves.

Ask them what they need. If you’re worried about someone and you want to be there for them, just ask them what they need- that way you know what they find helpful during tough times, and you can be there in a way that’s most useful to them.

Body Language. Smiles and hugs are a great way to show friends that they’re not alone, that you’re there for them, and that they are important.

Keep in touch. Even if you guys aren’t nearby each other, making an effort to keep in touch through facebook, emails, texts and calls will show your friend you are there for them.

Tell them how you feel. You don’t have to make a big deal of it all the time but sometimes there are moments where letting someone know that they’re important to you through something you say, can make a big difference to how someone is feeling.

Get the facts. If your friend has a medical condition, or a mental issues, a good way to offer support is to learn about their challenges. Taking an interest in what they’re going through shows that you care, and that you’re planning to stick around no matter what’s going on.

Facebook: Wrong and Write expectations about Friends

What is the real purpose of SMEAR campaigns?

I have often wondered who is behind the smear campaigns against Pierre?

Why is the carefully omitting of the REAL facts and excusing MURDER BY THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY HIRED SECURITY MAN?

In 2008 a security guard of the Church of Scientology did shoot on Church property  Mario Majorski. Mario has been exhibiting an erratic behavior on the Church Parking Lot. There was no people around and Mario did not endanger the life of anyone. He was carrying swards and was obviously mentally impaired. The Church hired security guards could of shot his arm or leg and call the police , but sure enough they have chosen to KILL the man in order to silence him forever! I wonder what is that Mario Majorski had to tell? THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY’S GUARD APPARENTLY DID GOT AWAY WITH MURDER. I find no excuse for that!  But this did not end with taking the life of Mario , the stooges of the Church of Scientology went ahead to harass Pierre for what they ( THE CHURCH HIRED GUNMAN) had done. They fabricated the article below using a doctored picture stolen from Pierre’s Facebook . In the article there was a fraudulent claim that Pierre was somehow ”responsible” for this.I ask here – where is the picture of the security man who KILLED Mario?

The TRUTH is that Pierre audited Mario Majorski in 1980-es while staff at the Church of Scientology. Pierre left the Church in 1992. Mario was killed by the CHURCH HIRED GUNMAN 30 years later, in 2008. In other words NOBODY ELSE BUT THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY’S EMPLYEE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MURDER WHICH APPEARS WAS ABSOLUTELY UNNECESSARY!

Mario Majoskin  walked safe and sound for 30 years ( which is more than half of his lifetime) since he last saw Pierre. It is a poor excuse to pin the killing of a human being to someone totally unrelated. THINK ABOUT THE REAL KILLERS! Nobody from the Church of Scientology Management seems to have shown any remorse for this MURDER.

OUR MESSAGE TO THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY : YOU DID NOT HAVE TO KILL A MENTALLY IMPAIRED MAN! WHY NOT HELP PEOPLE INSTEAD OF KILLING THEM?

Focus on Your Strengths Daily Drill

Sometimes we give our weaknesses and limitations more attention than our strengths. Yet research suggests that thinking about personal strengths can increase our happiness and reduce depression.

This drill asks you to identify one of your personal strengths—a positive trait that contributes to your character, such as kindness or perseverance—and consider how you could use it in a new and different way. Recognizing and exercising these strengths can make them stronger and better equip you to meet life’s challenges.

Time required for this drill each day will vary depending on how you choose to exercise your strengths.

  1. Take a moment to think about one of your personal strengths—for instance, creativity, perseverance, kindness, modesty, or curiosity. Consider how you could use this strength today in a new and different way. For example, if you choose the personal strength of perseverance, you might make a list of tasks that you have found challenging recently, then try to tackle each one of them. Or if you choose curiosity, you might attempt an activity that you’ve never tried before.
  2. Describe in writing the personal strength you plan to use today and how you are going to use it. Then, go ahead and do it—act on your strength as frequently as possible throughout the day.
  3. Repeat the steps above every day for a week. You may use the same personal strength across multiple days, or try using a new personal strength each day.
  4. At the end of the week, write about the personal strengths that you focused on during the week and how you used them. Write in detail about what you did, how you felt, and what you learned from the experience.

People tried using a personal strength each day for one week. Compared with those who didn’t try to use a strength—instead they wrote about early memories every day for a week—those who identified and used their strengths reported an increase in happiness and a decrease in symptoms of depression immediately after the one-week experiment, and those changes persisted six months later.

Photo Drill

Research suggests that finding greater meaning in life helps people cope with stress and improves their overall health and well-being—it’s what makes life feel worth living. But finding meaning in life can sometimes feel like an elusive task. In our day-to-day lives, it can be easy to lose sight of the big picture—we tend to focus more on the mundane than the deeply meaningful.

Yet research suggests that there are potential sources of meaning all around us, from the moments of connection we share with others, to the beauty of nature, to the work that we do and the things we create. This exercise helps you bring these meaningful things into focus—literally. By having you photograph, then write about, things that are meaningful to you, it encourages you to pay closer attention to the varied sources of meaning in your life, large and small, and reflect on why they are important to you.

The time required for this drill is 15 minutes per day for one week to take the photos. One hour to do the writing exercise. While it is not necessary to take a photograph every day, assume that the photography will take you a total of 90 minutes over the course of a week, with an additional hour for the writing.

1.Over the next week, take photographs of things that make your life feel meaningful or full of purpose. These can be people, places, objects, pets. If you are not able to take photos of these things—like if they’re not nearby—you can take photos of souvenirs, reminders, websites, or even other photos. Try to take at least nine photographs.

  1. At the end of the week: If you used a digital camera, upload your photos to a computer. If you used a non-digital camera, have your photos developed.
  2. Then, once you have collected all of your photos and items, take time to look at and reflect on each one. For each photo or item, write down a response to the following question: “What does this photo represent, and why is it meaningful?”

Taking time to recognize and appreciate sources of meaning through photography can help make them more tangible and serve as a reminder of what matters most to you. This greater sense of meaning can, in turn, inspire us to pursue important personal goals and give us a sense of strength and purpose when coping with stressful life events. The use of photography might also benefit people who are more visual than verbal—something for coaches, parents, or teachers to keep in mind as they approach conversations about meaning, purpose, and values in life

Relationships

Having seen the evidence that social connections are key to happiness, we have to ask: Why is that? Why do we enjoy such a mental boost from our social ties? To help answer that question,  we have to explore various reasons why our propensities to affiliate and connect might have proven essential to our survival. These evolutionary insights suggest that the happiness benefits of social connections aren’t just about politeness, or certain cultural norms. They also help us understand our own minds, putting us in a stronger position to identify the choices and activities that will bring us the greatest amount of happiness.

If humans are truly shaped  to connect with others for their survival, therefore humans today would be supplied with the basic tools required for connection. Indeed, there is strong evidence to support this claim. There are dedicated systems for connecting with others in our minds  and bodies, and our most basic communication faculties are geared for expressing and detecting affinitive signals from one another. Taking this idea one step further, we can argue that social connection may be our evolved “baseline,” that is, human minds assume that regular contact with others is the norm, and register other people as a behavioral resource–while the lack of others company is a reason for stress.

Diana

Our relationships can benefit happiness. But of course, not all relationships are the same; what it takes to cultivate, sustain, and reap the benefits from them varies, depending on the type of relationship we’re talking about.

There are particular benefits of specific kinds of relationships: romantic bonds, parent-child bonds, friendships, and acquaintances with people we feel similar and dissimilar to. Different relationships relate differently to happiness. Some interesting questions come to mind: Does getting married boost happiness? Are happy people more likely to get married? Are there other reasons why marriage might (or might not) lead to happiness?

Share 3 Good Things in a Bad Situation

Please share with us few bright things in a bad situation:

  1. Think about the most recent time when something didn’t go your way, or when you felt frustrated, irritated, or upset.
  2. In a few sentences, briefly describe the situation below
  3. Then, list three things that can help you see the bright side of this situation.

Daily Tone Lifting Drills

  1. Gratitude. Write down three things you’re grateful for that occurred over the last 24 hours. They don’t have to be profound. It could be a really good cup of coffee or the warmth of a sunny day.
  2. Experience. Take one positive experience from the past 24 hours and spend two minutes writing down every detail about that experience. As you remember it, your brain labels it as meaningful and deepens the imprint.
  3. The Fun. Do 30 minutes of a fun cardio activity, like gardening or walking the dog, every day. The effects of daily cardio can be as effective as taking an antidepressant.
  4. Concentration. Every day take two minutes to stop whatever you’re doing and concentrate on breathing. Even a short mindful break can result in a calmer, happier you.
  5. Conscious act of kindness. At the start of every day, send a short email or text praising someone you know. Our minds become addicted to feeling good by making others feel good.
  6. Deepen Social Connections. Spend time with family and friends. Our social connections are one of the best predictors for success and health, and even life expectancy

Within 30 days  the drills will open the door to life long optimism.

1 Day Drill

One of the most direct ways to increase happiness is to do more of the things that make us happy. But when life gets busy, we don’t always remember to make time for enjoyable activities. Intentionally scheduling a variety of enjoyable activities into the day can help overcome this barrier to happiness.

This exercise prompts you to engage in a variety of activities associated with happiness and reflect on how they make you feel. Different kinds of activities bring different kinds of satisfaction, all of which contribute uniquely to happiness. Research suggests that variety and novelty in daily activities is an important component of happiness, so trying a number of different activities can prevent you from getting so used to any one activity that it ceases to bring you pleasure.

This exercise is best completed on a day (or two) when you have a lot of free time, such as on a weekend. Step two may require some advanced planning with others. In the morning when you first wake up, review the following instructions and make a plan for the day.

  1. Choose an activity that you enjoy doing alone, such as reading, listening to music, watching a TV show, or meditating. Set aside some time during the day to complete this activity.
  2. Choose an activity that you enjoy doing with others, such as going out for coffee, going for a bike ride, or watching a movie. Set aside some time during the day to complete this activity.
  3. Choose an activity that you consider personally important and meaningful, such as helping a neighbor, calling to check in on a sick friend who is sick, or volunteering for a local charitable organization.
  4. At the end of the day, record what occurred during and after each of your three activities. What did you do, and how did it make you feel? Did different activities make you feel different kinds of happiness? What feelings or associations linger with you now, after you have completed all of the activities?

Seeking happiness through pleasurable, engaging, and meaningful activities was found to predict life satisfaction in a sample of 845 adults. Activities that involved deep mental engagement or meaningful pursuits were more strongly associated with happiness than pleasure-seeking activities, but the combination of all three types of activity was associated with the highest levels of life satisfaction.

Engaging in a range of activities can prevent “habituation,” which is the tendency to get used to things that we do regularly—and thus derive less satisfaction from them. What’s more, research suggests that combining activities that are related to different kinds of happiness (e.g., pleasure-based happiness vs. meaning-based happiness) can promote greater overall happiness than focusing on only one kind of happiness. Reflecting on enjoyable activities at the end of the day can make us more likely to store those experiences in memory and derive pleasure from them later on.

10 Minutes Drill: “Better Things in Life”

In our day-to-day lives, it’s easy to get caught up in the things that go wrong and feel like we’re living under our own private rain cloud; at the same time, we tend to adapt to the good things and people in our lives, taking them for granted. As a result, we often overlook everyday beauty and goodness–a kind gesture from a stranger, say, or the warmth of our heater on a chilly morning. In the process, we frequently miss opportunities for happiness and connection.

This practice guards against those tendencies. By remembering and listing three positive things that have happened in your day–and considering what caused them–you tune into the sources of goodness in your life. It’s a habit that can change the emotional tone of your life, replacing feelings of disappointment or entitlement with those of gratitude–which may be why this practice is associated with significant increases in happiness.

Each day for at least one week, write down three things that went well for you that day, and provide an explanation for why they went well. It is important to create a physical record of your items by writing them down; it is not enough simply to do this exercise in your head. The items can be relatively small in importance (e.g., “my co-worker made the coffee today”) or relatively large (e.g., “I earned a big promotion”). To make this exercise part of your daily routine, some find that writing before bed is helpful.

As you write, follow these instructions:

  1. Give the event a title (e.g., “co-worker complimented my work on a project”)
  2. Write down exactly what happened in as much detail as possible, including what you did or said and, if others were involved, what they did or said.
  3. Include how this event made you feel at the time and how this event made you feel later (including now, as you remember it).
  4. Explain what you think caused this event—why it came to pass.
  5. Use whatever writing style you please, and do not worry about perfect grammar and spelling. Use as much detail as you’d like.
  6. If you find yourself focusing on negative feelings, refocus your mind on the good event and the positive feelings that came with it. This can take effort but gets easier with practice and can make a real difference in how you feel.

People performing this exercise expressed that writing about three good things was associated with increased happiness immediately afterward, as well as one week, one month, three months, and six months later.By giving you the space to focus on the positive, this practice teaches you to notice, remember, and savor the better things in life. It may prompt you to pay closer attention to positive events down the road and engage in them more fully—both in the moment and later on, when you can reminisce and share these experiences with others. Reflecting on the cause of the event may help attune you to the deeper sources of goodness in your life, fostering a mindset of gratitude

10 minutes tone lifting drill

We all tend to ruminate on things that have gone wrong in our lives—a mistake we made at work, an evening that didn’t go as planned. We might even think about them so often that our lives seem filled with these mishaps and disappointments. Focusing on them too much, however, can cast a pall over our lives and even be associated with depressive thinking.

Looking on the bright side of life in general, or of a bad situation in particular, can increase happiness by boosting your sense of self-worth, motivating you to go after your goals, and enhancing your enjoyment of life. Regularly completing the silver linings exercise can help you get in the habit of recognizing positive aspects of your life and seeing the upside to challenging situations rather than fixating on the downsides. With repeated practice, you may find that it comes more naturally to look on the bright side, even when faced with difficulties in your life.

Looking on the bright side even when things go wrong is a key component of optimism, which links to lower rates of depression, a better ability to cope with stress, and more relationship satisfaction, among other benefits. Many of us have a tendency to look on the bright side too rarely, not too often. The following drill is designed to help you achieve a healthier balance:

Drill : 10 Minutes daily

  1. To start, list five things that make you feel like your life is enjoyable, enriching, and/or worthwhile at this moment. These things can be as general as “being in good health” or as specific as “drinking a delicious cup of coffee this morning.” The purpose of this first step is to help you shift into a positive state of mind about your life in general.
  2. Next, think about the most recent time when something didn’t go your way, or when you felt frustrated, irritated, or upset.
  3. In a few sentences, briefly describe the situation in writing.
  4. Then, list three things that can help you see the bright side of this situation. For example, perhaps you missed your bus this morning. Three ways to look on the bright side of this situation might be:
  • Even though you missed the bus, you got some good exercise when you were running to catch it.
  • You’re fortunate to live in a city where there was another bus just 10 minutes later, or where buses run reliably at all.
  • Ten years from now, you likely won’t remember what happened this morning.

Participants who completed the drill daily for three weeks reported greater engagement in life and less dysfunctional thinking (e.g., believing that small failures make one a failure as a person). Participants who had a tendency to be pessimistic especially benefited from the exercise and showed fewer depressive symptoms afterward. However, these effects seemed to wear off two months later, suggesting the need to repeat this practice periodically.

Success Story

It’s been two weeks since I got home and since Pierre did my L10 and each day I would say, it is time to wright up my Success Story. But there was a problem, each day there were more and more and more WIN’S occurring and so many wonderful new changes going on in my universe and in other universes that I for the life of me I couldn’t fine the time to sit
still long enough to compose a Success Story with out being blow out on another WIN.

So anyway here goes, L10 for me started out very subtle, not much to it at first and then POW the process really bit and I was on a white knuckle ride very similar to that of L11 and L12 only different because one is addressing one’s own 8 Dynamics. For the life of me I never thought or even had the idea I could have caused all the problems all the suppression and resistance across all my Dynamics. It was INCREDIBLE!!

I had so many major Cog’s and so much as-isness that occurred that even today I can’t recall what we did except one that I will never forget.We did an L10 action on one of the Dynamics and I totally blew out and it was indescribable at where I was at. Anyway you know how it is after a great session, the Cogs keep rolling on even hours later.

Well anyway I had a one word additional clog to the last action which I knew I should go tell Pierre right away, Na I’ll do it tomorrow I’m having too much fun looking through this ball of Fluff called the Physical Universe. Well later that night that ball of fluff came in and kicked my ass, O’Boy what fun that was and I mean it was fun to see and know what a Thetan goes
through when he fucks up. A good learning or reminding experience of what one does to self.

So next morning I come to breakfast and Pierre see’s me and indicates to me I’m the first to into session and here we go start of session, question one and two the mass blows, correct item indicated everything blows in less that 3 min totally exterior having more cog’s that before.

And my WIN it this, that a well Trained Standard Auditor can when applying LRH Standard Tech take any condition that a Thetan is in and handle it. No unusual solutions just LRH Standard Tech.

L10 took me from a state of 1st dynamic addressing as effect,resisting, fighting, and not-is-ing my other Dynamics to the
state of an 8th Dynamic ( source ) of all my,own Dynamics. Back to CAUSE again.

So time passes as time does and I attested to L10 and came home late on a Friday two weeks ago and the first thing I noticed that my Comm line, the Phone, was not working. All kinds of noise, screeching and howling coming out of the phone which kind of makes it hard to Comm with anybody. So while the body holds the phone I trace back the phone line to find the stop and there it is 5 miles away in a locked junction box is the problem. The roof of the old phone system was partly blown off and the rain got into the wiring.So with some manipulation of flows I got a change in the sound so I knew I had the right line and then I moved the flow around until I got a dial tone and then I made it solid, the flow that is, and it worked, some what but not enough to log on with my laptop.

So I hang up and immediately get a call from my Boss at work who has been trying to reach me all week. Now my Boss is an SP/enemy of mine and always has been but for some reason now he is not, all the previous enturblation is gone and he sounds like a good friend. That call from him saved me a week of wages plus he helped me take 2 weeks off which I decided I wanted so I can get back Auditing on Solo NOTS which was at a flat point before L10 but totally opened up a lot of new areas to be addressed after L10.

So for the past two weeks the wins keep coming, Solo NOTS is running great, the problems of life and livingness have improved and life is wonderful again in the universe’s except for a very confused Phone repairman who was spouse to come the following Friday but came on Monday instead because he just happened to be in the area. And he further became confused when I pointed out where the problem was and what caused it and even described the circuit board in the substation.

You know why waste time looking around other areas when I was wanting to get on line. So off he goes and comes back much later very confused, yes it was as I had described, the roof, the rain, the circuit board, Oh my the circuit board was totally fused, the repairman said it must have been hit by lighting. Sounds right to me said I.

My deepest thanks to my friend Pierre Ethier Cl12 who brought me through the L’s I am very grateful to you and your Auditing Skills.

To my friends who I stayed with for 2 weeks who gave such wonderful hospitality and care to me during my stay Thank You again I will always remember the time I spent with you all.

And finally L Ron Hubbard! Your Scientology Tech has brought me so far beyond my wildest dreams it has been an incredible journey.

So it is time to eat and then Jack into the Meter and get to work, I got 7 other Dynamics to work on and Clear and lot more WIN’S to be had.

E. S.

Trey Lotz to STOP the HARASSMENT!

I was told that Trey’s PC are to  sign a contract with him to assist him with any action against him, they are to act as “informants” and defend Trey at all cost. In other words to prevent good people from speaking their mind and silence anyone who disagrees with Trey. THIS IS NOT RIGHT! THIS IS NOT ETHICAL! So any PC who goes to contract himself out in such an unethical manner to snitch, lie, cheat and goes on to attack good people for the personal gains of his MASTER is out ethics. When ETHICS is out , the tech can not go in! You can not LIE and CHEAT and expect results from the tech!

It has been several years now Trey Lotz has been generating third party, Dev-T and harassment on Pierre. One example recently Trey claiming that Clear OT reference is in L-10 materials. There is no such reference in the L-10 materials. There has been tremendous amount of misinformation spread around by Trey consistently using Pierre’s name without his permission.  Trey Lotz has NEVER been granted a permission to use Pierre’s name in reference to his business practice, his PCs, his materials and his training!

I have asked Trey to STOP HARASSING PIERRE and to STOP spreading third party rumors!

Catherine

P.S. It has been many years that Trey Lotz has been self promoting himself as trained on the all 3 Ls. He also self promotes to be some kind of an authority on the Ls but has NEVER read or seen the genuine LRH training materials. In addition Trey has used and ABUSED Pierre’s name for self promotion after having BAD results and refusing to correct or do any cramming assigned! IN LAYMAN TERMS: If you were to go through university and fail on the exams , you certainly WILL NOT graduate or receive a licence to practice. Would you let a BUTCHER to perform a surgery?

Initially, when I published that Pierre has NOT completed  Trey’s training on Ls, I was viciously threatened. Trey Lotz also changed his story and went on to promote that he was APIS certified …. As you can see on the image below (taken from APIS web site) Trey Lotz is NOT certified to deliver the Ls by APIS! It is also unclear who did Trey’s NOTS training.

Trey does continue his 3P campaign on Pierre by purposefully spreading misleading information. In addition a number of pit-bulls came onto HARASSING and fair game Pierre to protect Trey’s financial interests with fraudulent fabrications. One of Trey’s pit-bulls claims to have paid $10 000 to a private PI to physically stalk Pierre to stop him from auditing. This is out of EVIL intentions.

Trey Lotz nit certifies

——

WALL OF SHAME

my question is about the use of the term “Clear OT” trey said it was in the L-10 materials.  the client had the state rehabbed by showing the reference. (I do not have a L-10 issue with that data)
then a post recently states you C/Sed a client named Hellen who went “Clear OT” on L-12.
trey deferred to you [Pierre]:

I will let Pierre decide that since I

agreed to not share the confidential issues
he gave me with others.  If it isn’t in what you
have then you don’t have that issue.
The definition is not that different from what is in the
tech dictionary.  It is more that he states it in different words.
ARC,
Trey

Another example testimonial  about Trey Lotz and Aida Thomas 3P by G.S.:

“……The Trey data came from him and Aida Thomas at a party. I went to an “independent” party to meet people…..Anyway, ….. the 3P from Trey and Aida furnished some distance between us. And of course, Trey never mentioned your benevolence …..

I had never heard anything bad or out about your tech. I always promoted you and if anyone said anything I always said he is one of the only ones whose pcs never arrived at my door for a clean up.

That being said, Catherine Z. did act as a 3P and I should have checked with you first, but as I said, I didn’t feel I had a line to you…..”

Debbie Cook’s letter

Debbie Cook was the Captain of the FSO for 17 years and was a Sea Org member for 30 years. She sent this email to her Scientologist friends on 31 Dec 2011.

“I am emailing you as a friend and fellow Scientologist. As we enter a new year, it is hoped that 2012 can be a year of great dissemination and a year of real progress up The Bridge for all Scientologists.

Although I am not in the Sea Org right now, I served in the Sea Org at Flag for 29 years. 17 of those years were as Captain FSO.

I am a trained auditor and C/S as well as an OEC, FEBC and DSEC.

I am completely dedicated to the technology of Dianetics and Scientology and the works of LRH.

I have seen some of the most stunning and miraculous results in the application of LRH technology and I absolutely know it is worth fighting to keep it pure and unadulterated. My husband and I are in good standing and we are not connected with anyone who is not in good standing.

We have steadfastly refused to speak to any media, even though many have contacted us.

But I do have some very serious concerns about out-KSW that I see permeating the Scientology religion.

I have the utmost respect for the thousands of dedicated Scientologists and Sea Org members.Together, we have come through everything this world could throw at us and have some real impingement on the world around us. I am proud of our accomplishments and I know you are too.

However there is no question that this new age of continuous fundraising is not our finest moment.

LRH says in HCO PL 9 Jan 51, An Essay on Management, “drop no curtains between the organization and the public about anything.”-LRH

Based on this policy I am communicating to you about some situations that we need to do something about within our religion, within our group. Actions that are either not covered in policy or directly violate LRH policy and tech include the extreme over-regging and fund-raising activities that have become so much a part of nearly every Sea Org org and Class V org as well as every “OT Committee”.

This fundraising is not covered anywhere in LRH policy.

Hardworking Sea Org members and the dedicated staff of orgs around the world aren’t choosing to do these actions.

Nor are the OTs. I am sure they would be more than happy if they could just get on with direct dissemination of Scientology as they have done for so many years.

But the truth is that this is being driven from the very highest echelons within the Scientology structure and clearly there is a lot of pressure to make targets that are being set.

The IAS:

The IAS was created unbeknownst to LRH in 1984 by Marc Yager and David Miscavige.

This was supposed to be based on LRH policies on the subject of membership and the HASI, however the IAS is nothing like the membership system described by LRH which only has two memberships and is covered in HCO PL 22 March 1965 “Current Promotion and Org Program Summary, Membership Rundown” and states: “There are two memberships…”– LRH

LRH lists there the INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP and gives its cost at 10 pounds sterling or $30 US.

He also lists a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP which is priced at $75 US.

There are no other memberships or statuses approved or known to LRH.

Furthermore, membership monies are supposed to go directly to the org where the membership is signed up, and the money used for dissemination by that org, in that area.

This is covered in HCOPL 1 Sept 1965R Membership Policies. “It all goes into the HCO Book Account in the area where the membership is brought and is not part of the organization’s weekly gross income. Membership monies go to dissemination”.- LRH

Currently membership monies are held as Int reserves and have grown to well in excess of a billion dollars.

Only a tiny fraction has ever been spent, in violation of the policy above. Only the interest earned from the holdings have been used very sparingly to fund projects through grants.

In fact many of the activities you see at IAS events are not actually funded by the IAS, but rather by the Scientologists involved.

Think about it, how many ads disseminating Scientology, Dianetics or any Scn affiliated programs have you seen on TV? Heard on the radio? Seen in newspapers?

I haven’t seen one in the 4 years I have lived in San Antonio, Texas, the 7th largest city in the US. How many have you seen?

Donating anything more than a lifetime membership to the IAS is not based on LRH policy.

The article “What Your Donations Buy” (The Auditor, The Monthly Journal of Scientology No. 51, 1970) is clearly talking about how the church uses your donations for Dianetics and Scientology services.

Next time you are asked to donate outside of services, realize that you are engaged in fundraising and ask to see something in writing from L. Ron Hubbard that this is something he expects from you as a Scientologist.

New Org Buildings:

LRH also never directed the purchase of opulent buildings or the posh renovations or furnishings for every org. In fact, if you read HCO PL 12 March 75 Issue II, “The Ideal Org”, which is what this program has been called, and nowhere in it will you find 20 million dollar buildings or even any reference to the poshness of org premises at all as part of LRH’s description of an “Ideal Org”.

Instead, an Ideal Org was one that delivered and moved people up The Bridge – something that is not part of this “Ideal Org” program.

LRH says in the PL that an Ideal Org: “would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public” – LRH.

This is all it says about the state of the building.

As a result of this off-policy alteration of the Ideal Org PL, we have the majority of top OTs, now deemed “OT Ambassadors”, heavily engaged in fund-raising activities that include “bingo”, “pirate dinners”, “knitting classes”, “hay rides”, and many other activities strictly revolving around raising funds for the required multi-millions of dollars to fund their “Ideal Org”.

As part of this, people around every org are now asked to donate to their local “Ideal Org” instead of their own services or their own Bridge.

LRH says in HCO PL Org Ethics and Tech: “GET RID OF DISTRACTIONS FROM SCIENTOLOGY in your org. Baby-sitting or raffle tickets and such nonsense.”-LRH

Yet these distractions are rampant as they are being used as fund-raisers to get money for the huge quotas being issued to fund the “Ideal Org”.

“If the org slumps… don’t engage in ‘fund-raising’ or ‘selling postcards’ or borrowing money. Just make more income with Scientology. It’s a sign of very poor management to seek extraordinary solutions for finance outside Scientology. It has always failed.” “For orgs as for pcs, ‘Solve It With Scientology’. “Every time I myself have sought to solve financial or personnel in other ways than Scientology I have lost out. So I can tell you from experience that org solvency lies in more Scientology, not patented combs or fund-raising barbeques.” – LRH HCO PL 24 February 1964, Issue II, Org Programming, (OEC Vol. 7, p. 930)

The point is that Scientologists and OT’s need to be training, auditing and disseminating to raw public- not regging each other or holding internal fundraisers.

Out Tech:

Over the last few years we have seen literally hundreds and hundreds of people who were validated as clear using the CCRD as developed by LRH now being told they are not Clear.

This included hundreds of OTs who were then put onto NED as a “handling”.

LRH clearly forbid any Dianetics to be run on OTs in HCOB “Dianetics Forbidden on OTs”. This is out tech.

This entire technical “handling” was directed personally by COB RTC and was done on thousands of OTs.

But it was based not on an LRH HCO Bulletin, but rather based on a single C/S instruction where LRH C/Sed one pre-OT who had not achieved the state of clear but was mid OT III and not making it.

LRH directed a solo handling that the pre-OT was to do to get himself to achieve the state of Clear.

This LRH C/S taken out of context was then used to implement a technical handling that was in direct violation of an LRH HCOB. This and other “technical handlings” done on Solo NOTs auditors created great expense and hardship on Solo NOTs auditors around the world as they were made to do these handlings to continue on the level.

Then there are the “fast grades at Flag” that no other org has. How can it be that Flag has been delivering grades differently to the rest of the world for the last 3 years?

Whatever the problem is, the fact is that having “fast Grades” at Flag creates a hidden data line and is a HIGH CRIME and the subject of an entire policy letter called HCOPL “TECH DEGRADES” which LRH has placed at the start of every Scientology course.

More recently the fad seems to be that nearly everyone needs to “re-do their Purif and do a long objectives program”, including many OTs mid Solo NOTs.

There is nothing wrong with doing objectives, but it is a clear violation of HCOB ‘MIXING RUNDOWNS AND REPAIRS” to have a person mid a rundown or OT level be taken off it and placed on an objectives program.

Solo NOTs auditors are also being made to get their objectives from a Class IX auditor at great expense as they are not being allowed to co-audit.

Flag has made many millions of dollars on the above listed out tech handlings because OTs mid Solo NOTs are forced to get these out-tech actions to be able to get back onto and stay on the level and complete it. Not to mention the spiritual effects of the out tech that this has on each OT.

I myself was subject to these out tech “handlings”, including extensive FPRD mid Solo NOTs. It took its toll in many ways, including physical situations I am still dealing with today. So I have some reality of the hardship caused.

LRH Command Structure:

LRH left us with a complex and balanced command structure, with our orgs led by the Office of ED International.

This office was considered so important that LRH created a special management group called the Watch Dog Committee whose only purpose was to see that this office and the other needed layers of management existed.

LRH ED 339R speaks of this extensively as the protection for our Church. But these people are missing. And not just some. As of just a few years ago there were no members of the office of ED Int on post, not to mention top execs throughout the International Management structure.

You may have also wondered… where is Heber, the President of the Church?

What about Ray Mitthoff, Senior C/S International, the one that LRH personally turned over the upper OT Levels to?

How about Norman Starkey, LRH’s Trustee?

What happened to Guillaume – Executive Director International? And Marc Yeager, the WDC Chairman?

What happened to the other International Management executives that you have seen at events over the years?

The truth is that I spent weeks working in the empty International Management building at Int.

Empty because everyone had been removed from post. When I first went up lines I was briefed extensively by David Miscavige about how bad all of them were and how they had done many things that were all very discreditable.

This seemed to “explain” the fact that the entirety of the Watchdog Committee no longer existed.

The entirety of the Executive Strata, which consisted of ED International and 11 other top International executives that were the top executives in their particular fields, no longer existed.

That the Commodore’s Messenger Org International no longer existed. All of these key command structures of Scientology International, put there by LRH, had been removed. There were hundreds and hundreds of unanswered letters and requests for help from org staff, written based on LRH ED 339R where LRH says that staff can write to these top executives in the Exec Strata for help. But this is not possible if all these execs have been removed and no one is there to help them or to get evaluations and programming done to expand Scientology.

Well, after that I got to spend some quality time with Heber, Ray Mithoff, Norman Starkey, Guillaume, as well as the entirety of International Management at the time, who were all off post and doing very long and harsh ethics programs.

These have gone on for years and to the only result of that they are still off post.

There is no denying that these top executives have all gradually disappeared from the scene. You don’t see them at the big events anymore or on the ship at Maiden Voyage.

David Miscavige has now become the “leader” of the Scientology religion. Yet what LRH left behind was a huge structure to properly manage all aspects of the Scientology religion. He put a complete and brilliant organizational structure there, not one individual.

There never was supposed to be a “leader” other than LRH himself as the goal maker for our group.

There is a situation here and even if you have not been to the International Management Base you should be able to see that over regging and frequent tech changes are not OK and you have a responsibility to do something to Keep Scientology Working.

You should be able to find and read the references on membership in OEC Volume 6. Find and read the HCO PL entitled “The Ideal Org” (Data Series 40).

Find and read the references on org buildings, including HCO PL 24 Aug 65 II, Cleanliness of Quarters and Staff, Improve our Image.

Also, HCO PL 17 June 69, The Org Image.

If you don’t want to make waves or put yourself in danger of being taken off the level or denied eligibility, then there are some simple things you can do.

First and foremost, withdraw your support from off policy actions.

Stop donating to anything other than your own services and actual Bridge progress.

Simply demand to see an LRH reference that says you are required to make other such donations.

No one will be able to produce any references because there aren’t any.

Stop supporting any of the activities that are being done to forward off-policy fund-raising in your area.

LRH says what he expects of a Scientologist – that is what he expects you to do.

In fact he put it in HCOB 10 June 1960 Issue I, Keeping Scientology Working Series 33, WHAT WE EXPECT OF A SCIENTOLOGIST. Read it and follow it.

The other thing you can do is to send this email to as many others as you can, even if you do it anonymously.

Please keep this email among us, the Scientologists. The media have no place in this.

You may wonder why I have not written a KR and gone about my business. The answer is, I have. But there is no longer anyone to send that KR to.

But you can and should write reports and bring off-policy to the attention of local org executives and local Sea org members.

We are a strong and powerful group and we can affect a change. We have weathered many storms. I am sorry that I am the one telling you, but a new storm is upon us. It’s waves are already in the media and the world around us.

The truth is that as a Scientologist you are more able, more perceptive and have a higher integrity.

Scientology is supposed to allow you to “think for yourself” and never compromise your own integrity.

And most certainly LRH held every Scientologist responsible to KEEP SCIENTOLOGY WORKING.

I am not trying to do anything other than affect a change in serious off policy actions occurring. My husband and I have most of our family and many many good friends who are Scientologists.

I have not been real interested in sticking my neck out like this.

However, I also know that I dedicated my entire adult life to supporting LRH and the application of LRH technology and if I ever had to look LRH in the eye I wouldn’t be able to say I did everything I could to Keep Scientology Working if I didn’t do something about it now.

We all have a stake in this.

It is simply not possible to read the LRH references and not see the alterations and violations that are currently occurring.

You have a very simple obligation to LRH. Don’t participate in anything off policy, and let others know they should not either.

If every person who reads this email does nothing more than step back from off-policy actions we would have changed direction.

If we took all that energy and directed it into auditing, training and raw public dissemination, we would be winning.

And that is what I wish for you and all of us as we ring in this new year.

ARC,

Debbie Cook”

Kindness makes you happy

In one famous study, people who spent $5 or $20 on others were happier at the end of the day, while people who spent it on themselves got less happy – a finding that is being confirmed across cultures. If you practice kindness you’ll see an increase in your daily positive emotions.

Kindness makes you happy and happiness makes you kind!

One study showed that doing a daily act of kindness gives us as much of a happiness boost as doing something new every day. Even remembering a time when we spent money on someone else can boost happiness, and the happier we are when reminiscing, the more likely we’ll choose to spend money on others again (when given the option).

Going Through Spiritual Path

I started examining advanced spiritual enlightenment and the sense of disgust. It makes good evolutionary sense that human beings gone through the advanced path should have an emotion that makes them feel repulsion toward rotten food, and other physical objects that are full of dangerous bacteria and parasites. Disgust can be reactive or can me a normal response to the surrounding environment. It also makes sense that disgust should make us hypersensitive to contagion—that is, we feel disgust toward anything that touched something that we find disgusting.


When actually asked people in several countries to list the things they thought were disgusting, the most responses mentioned social offenses, such as hypocrisy, racism, cruelty, and betrayal.

How on earth did a food-based and very corporeal emotion become a social and moral emotion? The answer is that while disgust may motivate people to distance themselves from physical threats, it is well-suited for dealing with social threats as well. When we find social actions disgusting, they indicate to us that the person who commit¬ted them is in some way morally defective.

In this light, we can place human actions on a vertical dimension that runs from our conception about GOOD and EVIL. This vertical dimension is part of the truth that people are reincarnated at higher or lower levels depending on their moral behavior in this life.

Social disgust can then be understood as the emotional reaction people have to witnessing others moving “down,” or exhibiting their lower, baser, less God-like nature. Human beings feel revolted by moral depravity, and this revulsion is akin to the revulsion they feel toward rotten food and cockroaches. In this way, dis¬gust helps us form groups, reject deviants, and build a moral community.
Going through the path of spiritual enlightenment makes people rise on the vertical dimension toward goodness. This makes people feel higher on it themselves. If disgust is a negative emotion that strengthens ego bound-arise and defenses against a morally reprehensible other, then true spiritual enlightenment is its opposite—a desire to associate with those who are morally admirable. Love and a desire for affiliation appear to be a common human response.

It is a very beautiful fact about that each of us can be moved to tears by the sight of a stranger helping another stranger. It is an even more beautiful fact that these feelings sometimes inspire us to change our own behavior, values, and goals.

Being Open

There wouldn’t be such a thing as counterfeit gold if there were no real gold somewhere. So how can we tap into those genuine, heartfelt positive emotions without grasping for the counterfeit gold?

One of the things that I think is very useful is to keep in mind that there’s reciprocal relationship between the mindset of positivity and positive emotions—a mindset of positivity begets positive emotions, and positive emotions beget positivity. So if we lightly create the mindset of positivity, from that positive emotions will follow.

How to foster that mindset? It helps to be open, be appreciative, be curious, be kind, and above all, be real and sincere. From these strategies spring positive emotions.

Now some of these are pretty self-explanatory, but I do want to explain what “be open” means as a way to increase your positive emotions. The reason that this works is that so often we can be preoccupied worrying about the future, ruminating about the past so we’re completely oblivious to the goodness that surrounds us in the present moment.

But when we’re really open to our current circumstances, those sources of goodness are so much easier to draw from, and they yield positive emotions.

Understanding Evil Transformation

As I have come to understand EVIL, I have realized that such transformations of human character are not as rare as we would like to believe. Historically “banality of evil” shows under certain conditions and social pressures, ordinary people can commit acts that would otherwise be unthinkable.

We all like to think that the line between good and evil is impermeable—that people who do terrible things, such as commit murder, treason, or kidnapping, are on the evil side of this line, and the rest of us could never cross it. But is it that some people are on the good side only because situations have never coerced or seduced them to cross over?

To gain more understanding I studied the circumstances of imprisonment—to see what happens when you put good people in a dehumanizing place. For example after a prisoner rebellion the guards start using increasingly degrading forms of punishment and the prisoners became more and more passive. People tend to accept EVIL or often DO NOTHING to stop it.

This is true not only for perpetrators of torture and other horrible acts, but for people who commit a more common kind of wrong—the wrong of taking no action when action is called for. Whether we consider Nazi Germany a prison, there were many people who observed what was happening and said nothing. Stand around watching passively and observing human abuses and don’t say, “This is wrong! Stop it!” you give tacit approval to continue. You are part of the silent majority that makes evil deeds more acceptable.

For instance, there are the “good people” who maintained “the prison”. Good people watched when the worst abuses occurred and did not confront the abusers. The situation dictated their inaction, and their inaction facilitated evil.

Victory Parade – Moscow

The 2015 Moscow Victory Day Parade is an upcoming parade that will take place in Red Square in Moscow on 9 May 2015 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the capitulation of Nazi Germany in 1945. The annual parade marks the Allied victory in the Second World War at the Eastern Front, on the same day as the signing of the German act of capitulation to the Allies in Berlin, at midnight of May 9, 1945.

 

 

Fable

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL :
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happens.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less from people but more from yourself.

Advancement

I have been reading some of your web pages and I can say that of all that I read on the internet, yours come through with the most truth.  I just finished reading about your evaluation of the Lisa McPherson handling, and I find it amazing.  Of course it relates to all of us.  For me at the moment of understanding your communication, I realized how thoroughly I had reached a point where virtually my entire goal in continuing in Scientology had become to avoid getting sucked into it.  This virtually consumed the more important aspect of actually obtaining long term case gain.

I can recall the auditing I received from you so clearly.  It must have happened in the early 80’s.  The auditing went so smoothly as you seemed 100% relaxed and that allowed me to relax as opposed to getting unnecessary buttons pushed and other distractions from occurring.  Of course, after only a few sessions, it was decided you were needed for other cases based on language requirements so I was assigned another much less experienced auditor which was very upsetting to me.  It was obvious to me I would not receive the gains that I could have received from you.

And getting back to your web page articles, I want to thank you for expressing yourself so clearly.  I had a flash where I realized that I was really not in a condition to receive much case gain for many years and in that realization, I had again an idea of hope.  That is why I feel that now is the right time to get in comm. with you.  I have in fact had improvements in my life over the last few years but certainly some major blockage has been there for quite a number of years.

Anyway, how are you and what are you up to in 2015?  I am interested in exploring further advancement.  I do travel considerably and I would be delighted to see you again. Let’s draft some plans and make it a workable solution.

Which step have you reached today?

Are you learning a new skill? Working on your routine? or practicing an old one? You can apply the staircase of success.

Where do you sit on the staircase of success? Training isn’t always about the big achievements, it is also about the steps taken along the way. Sometimes a new skill or routine seems impossible, and you think “I won’t do it” or “I can’t do it.” Ask yourself “Do I want to do it?” and ask our coach “How do I do it?” Before long you will reach the top: “Yes, I did it!”
