Hi! Welcome to the 45th installment of the letter from the C/S. Once again my name is Greg Smith, New OT VIII, Class VI auditor, Grad V C/S and Senior Case Supervisor of Mace-Kingsley Family Center.
The topic of this month’s letter is Keeping Scientology Working, your children and your family.
Here’s a scenario: your two children, ages 3 and 7 are fighting over a toy, screaming and hitting each other, causing a ruckus. What do you do? Well, there are a large number of wrong things you could do, but probably only a handful of right actions. LRH has done all the research for us. He has laid out the tools for us to first study and then apply to this situation and to any other situation that comes up in life.
All of you should be taking full advantage of the Basics and getting into your local orgs and missions to get through them. There are so many gems of data that you come across daily in the studies of the Basics that you can apply to your kids and your family! Sure, do some auditor training and learn to take preclears in session and give them case gain. But definitely don’t neglect all the existing data on raising kids, smooth handling of families, etc. that are found all through the Basics.
Keeping Scientology Working series number one states,
“1) Having the correct technology; 2) Knowing the technology.”
This says it all right here—if you run into a scenario like I have lain out above and you don’t know anything to do but jump into the fray and administer some corporal punishment, you are not keeping Scientology working—period.
A quick handling for the above scenario — from FREEDOM CONGRESS, tape 7 July 1957, CHILD SCIENTOLOGY — “… it’s a funny thing, but if you take a child who is having a—well, he’s having a fight with some other child. And if you merely assume that he’s either tired or hungry, you’re right. See? He’s having a fight, so you assume he’s tired or hungry. Feed him and put him to bed.”
It’s so simple, and yet very effective.
This tape is part of the Congress series which have now been out for about 2 years. Many of you have probably heard this lecture and know and apply this datum. But we all are Scientologists and need to keep Scientology working by obtaining and actually listening to these lectures as well as doing the Basics courses.
The next vital step is for you to get your children onto services too, whether it’s some beginning courses, starting them on Introductory Auditing, or getting them onto their Purification Rundown. Scientologists are made by the individual doing services and having wins. Your children are no different. They deserve to go free just like everyone else.
Now just imagine what it would be like if all existing Scientologists got all the way through their Basic books & lectures courses and all the Congresses. This is already happening, to a large degree. But imagine if it was completely done. There would be so much rightness present on this planet as a result that I’m sure the entire society would change for the better. So let’s do it!
Okay, that’s all for now. Stay in touch with your emails and letters with wins, questions, anything you want to tell me. I hope to see you all soon.
Senior Case Supervisor,
