Discovering Scientology: How to Be a Successful Parent Course

Is it okay to boast about your own kids? After all, as a parent, you had something to do with how they turned out. Well, whether it's okay or not I'm going to say that my kids are awesome. They are grown up and living happy and successful lives and I attribute it all to my own brilliance ,,, just kidding. When they were growing up, my wife and I applied the data from the How to Be a Successful Parent Course and it worked. When I hear people talking about the hell of the "teenage" years and the "rebellious years" and other such cliches I honestly have no idea what they are talking about, because my kids never went through any of that. They were not angels, they were normal kids, but my wife and I had to tools to make their growing up a pleasure for them and for us.

Scientology Resources

The press is really talking a lot right now about Scientology. I have to give some credit that their descriptions are getting better (although some of them are still saying the weirdest things). Anyway, here is a link to a very good resource for accurate data on Scientology: Leisa Goodman - Human Rights Director - Church of Scientology International. Go about half way down the page for all sorts of useful links.

An Impartial Description of Scientology

The Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance are a group who, as their name suggests, are interested in promoting religious tolerance. With that in mind they write up impartial summaries of religions, their history, beliefs, etc. Their summaries attempt to be accurate but impartial. I think they manage this in their description of Scientology: Scientology - Its symbol, history, beliefs, & practices.

Creed of the Church of Scientology

The word "Creed" comes from the Latin word "credo" which means "I believe". Because Scientology is so much in the news recently many people probably want to know what Scientologists believe, so here it is: The Creed of the Church of Scientology

Scientology and Scientologists Caring About Children

A keynote of Scientology is responsibility. Because of their religion Scientologists feel a duty to do something about the state of the world and to help their fellow man. Here is an example of a website someone has created that gives data on what Scientologists are doing and tools you can use to help children: The Scientology Religion Helping Children

Note: any green colored links you see on this site are paid advertising put there by the hosting company, Fortune City, and not by the person who created the site.

Discovering Scientology: Starting a Successful Marriage Course

Now here is a course a lot of people could use. In fact I wish I'd taken this course before my first marriage, perhaps it would have been as successful as my second (and final!) one. In fact, I applied the data on the Starting a Successful Marriage Course prior to my second marriage and it sure worked: my wife and have been married for 12 years now and we are still as happy as the first day!

Discovering Scientology: How to Improve Conditions in Life Course

Improving conditions is what Scientology is all about. I think everyone realizes that the conditions in their life could improve. In fact a basic truth discovered in Scientology is that things either get better or they get worse, nothing stays the same. I've used the data in the How to Improve Conditions in Life Course to help myself and others to turn around bad situations, to improve conditions that were just okay and to maintain improvements.

Discovering Scientology: How to Improve Relationships with Others Course

Relationships can be a tough area. When I first came across Scientology I was extremely shy so establishing relationships was hard. After learning the data on this course I was able to finally establish lasting relationships with others and was able to handle situations where relationships went wrong or got strained. It's a wonderful course: How to Improve Relationships with Others Course

Discovering Scientology: Personal Values and Integrity Course

For years we've heard talk about "self-esteem" but the people who talk about it never provide workable methods of achieving true self-esteem. Self-esteem is strongly tied to personal integrity and when you lose your personal integrity, you have lost one of the most important things an individual has.

The Personal Values and Integrity Course gives you knowledge on what personal integrity is and then gives you tools to increase or repair your own. It's a great course. I did it many years ago and it caused some very positive changes in, not only my life, but also in the way I viewed and lived life. I've been much happier since.

Discovering Scientology: Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life Course

One way to find out what Scientology is all about is to study an introductory course. Scientology Introductory Courses are simple, but contain very practical knowledge and techniques that you can use in life immediately. One such course is the "Overcoming Ups and Downs in Life Course". This gives you the basics on what to do about those ups and downs we all hit. Doing well one day and then doing badly the next? Do you make mistakes in certain environments or around certain people? It's all covered in this course.

You can read about other such course here: Scientology Introductory Courses

L. Ron Hubbard on "What is Greatness?"

L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, was a man of great compassion who had tremendous faith in mankind. He demonstrated this in much of his writing but probably nowhere more than in the article "What is Greatness?" in which he said, "To love in spite of all is the secret of greatness. And may very well be the greatest secret in this universe." The entire article can be read here: What is Greatness?

The Way To Happiness

Although the book "The Way To Happiness" is not a religious publication, Scientologists use the precepts (rules) in the book to help them live better lives and help their fellow man. The book is amazingly effective in helping people get along. Just look at this quote from Mr. Gregory L. Smith, Director of Partnership Management, National Headquarters of the American Red Cross: "Both Muslim and Christian participants agreed that The Way to Happiness could facilitate the realization of peace between warring factions." It's not often that you see something like that!

The Way To Happiness Foundation distributes the book throughout the world. It's goal is to restore honesty and trust through the use of the common sense moral code contained in the book.

Right now you can get a free eBook version of The Way To Happiness book so click the link, download and read!

What Scientology Can Do: Communication & Lasting Relationships

If you want to improve your life in the area of getting along with others and forming lasting relationships then I highly recommend the Success Through Communication Course. It was the first course I did in Scientology and, apart from being an excellent introduction to the subject, it made a huge difference in my life. I became much more out going and was able to get along much better with others. I've used the skills I learned to improve my situation at work, to help friends through difficulties and much more besides.
